Day 521

After many many many months, i went to sleep calmly on a sunday night without thinking of the usual monday morning blues. Because after so many months(years infact) i would be back doing a routine day shift job. Though it was nearly 2:30 AM by the time i slept, i still felt good about waking at 8 AM in the morning without having to worry about traveling to one end of the city to work at odd hours. Its the last couple of days of training and its getting tough with each module. But thats the real test. I have a gut feeling that after the learning curve at work, i will find my way out to find it easy to work there. After all, i have something, which not many people at work have - 13 years of work experience. With good work experience, one can adapt to all the different kinds of work environment at no major hassle. I came home and then headed for the gym. Did a 45 minute intense cardiovascular cum weights work out and then came home. Since the cook is on annual leaves, i had to do with eating food outside. And, i guess because its vacation time, all the restaurants in my area were chock-a-block with people. So I went to the local udipi - Maji Sagar, which was mostly full and had some pav bhaji. In the night, chatted with an old friend of mine for nearly an hour on the phone. Most of our conversation was about spirituality and how to life, more often than not, puts you in such labyrinths, that one does not understand what to do. But then its the same life or the same spiritual force which will ensure it shows you a way out of it as well. Today morning was the usual training at work. And it feels good that every day i am learning something new. Whether its professionally or personally. I didnt feel like going to the Gym today as i had a severe headache. So i took it easy and when i came home in the night, just surfed the net and had a nice shower. Dinner, as usual, was at the Udipi. I guess, in the days to come, i will need to cultivate my culinary skills as its not in the best of my interest to survive on Hotel food every day. Or else i may just have some subway sandwiches if i cant cook.
I would want to say, that slowly and steadily, my life is getting back to whatever a routine normal professional life should be. Wake up in the morning. Have breakfast. Go to work. Have lunch. Come back in the evening/night, go to the gym, have dinner and sleep.
Maybe from next week it will be, wake in the morning, go to the gym, come home, relax, have lunch, go to the office, have dinner, come home and then sleep by 12:30.
But in either of these situations, i will be having a night's sleep. Which is so crucial for me.
Of course, it would be an icing on the cake if the same thing would happen on my personal front. I was told about an interesting theory about optimist thinking last night by a well wisher. The well wisher(And i hope you are reading this blog) said that in the Book - The Secret - By Rhonda Byrne, there is a theory that if one totally concentrates on achieving something and does not concentrate on the odds that may be working against him/her, they may actually end up getting that thing. Whether this would work in real life or not, can be debatable but there is no harm in trying it.
This could be a food for thought for many of you, including me.

And for my beloved....

When most I wink, then do mine eyes best see,
For all the day they view things unrespected;
But when I sleep, in dreams they look on thee,
And darkly bright are bright in dark directed.
Then thou, whose shadow shadows doth make bright,
How would thy shadow's form form happy show
To the clear day with thy much clearer light,
When to unseeing eyes thy shade shines so!
How would, I say, mine eyes be blessed made
By looking on thee in the living day,
When in dead night thy fair imperfect shade
Through heavy sleep on sightless eyes doth stay!
All days are nights to see till I see thee,
And nights bright days when dreams do show thee me.
