After a long work-induced hiatus, The New Indian Wife is back! I can give you oodles of reasons for why the lapse between posts. Mostly I blame work which has been all-consuming and overwhelming the last few months. I have been on the road, in the skies and in hotel rooms working all hours of the day trying to advance my career. My laptop has literally been tethered to my wrists. The pendulum swung so far towards work that there was little time left for everything else. No time for My Leading Man, no time for my family, no time for my writing and most upsettingly no time for my health and well-being. I left behind all the things I love the most and focused far too much on something that shouldn’t matter as much as it has over the last few months. I want my life back! I want to spend time with My Leading Man, I want to focus on being a good daughter, spend more time on the phone with my mother in law, I want to go to yoga regularly, focus on meditating and most importantly I want to get back to my writing. In the weeks and months leading up to my wedding I released all my pre-wedding stress by blogging all about the pre-wedding happenings. I have felt a true and profound loss without the blog the last few months. So what am I going to do about it? Well, step one is to make some changes. I need to peel myself away from work, where the politics, stress and client demands have been all-consuming. That won’t happen overnight but one of the ways to remove my work shackles is to not open my laptop when I get home from work and not working on the weekends. I am going to make a conscious effort to reintroduce time for all the things that should matter most to me and need to be tended to each and every day– my marriage, my health, my family and of course, my writing. So while I may not write everyday, my fabulous readers can rest assured that I will be back writing about my experiences as The New Indian Wife. So let’s keep this blog moving, shall we?
