So.. the entire first month of 2011 has just gone by without a post. Not such a great start to the year in terms of blogging but well, here I am, back again 🙂

I’m currently travelling and away from home and so have so much more time on my hands! I wonder what I do with all this time when I’m home….  like I was thinking… now, as of this moment, I’m not worried if H is messing up the house… if he has picked up the newspapers strewn around… if the maid is coming … if there are veggies in the fridge! All I know is that its me, in my nice and cozy hotel room… with a great internet connection and a  lot of thoughts that are potential blog posts …

… and to start off… how about this…

We girls tend to start taking ourselves too seriously with each passing milestone in our lives… and if we were to remove ourselves from the situation… we realise that hey… its probably social conditioning!

Like me now, in this far off land… feel and behave and spend my time just that same way as I used too… when I was not married. I am not feeling very “married” right now…. I’m away from all things marriage 😀 starting with the lovely H :p and then the house, and the family and the expectations and etc etc.

But when I’m back… it will be back to being responsible for everything!

I think travelling is letting me preserve my individuality… my space. Its powerful in that with one flight…. I cross a mental age of around 5-6 years and find myself feeling much younger, much lighter.

If it is so easy to leave these responsibilities that come attached with the milestones in our life… I wander why we can’t seem to shake them off when we are “in” the situation?

I wonder..
