  1. I am so glad that you didn’t get bogged down in a quagmire of mixed emotions. So many do…

    There is definitely a certain freedom to that time regardless of material circumstances. The hope is an amazing feeling.

    Quandary sums it up perfectly. Seems like I went through similar sruff- low pay, OK digs, ppl and their opinions and best of all feeling good most days, numb the rest!!!!
    I was pretty sure I wanted the divorce but yes it was a big quandary for me too.

    Awesome post Kalpanaa- big thumbs up!!

    I can relate to that bit you have written here -about a new found level of energy and enthusiasm and excitement in life. I didn’t want the divorce, my ex did. It was a trauma for me. Yet after it was all over, I felt so light.. as if a heavy baggage was just dropped from my shoulder and I was ready to soar!
    As for quandaries in life – they are perpetual, one way or the other.

    Liberating and lifting of a veil of encumbrance of hypocracy helps in breaking the silence

    This is a really interesting post and a great word and theme for Q!

  9. Your heart was telling you how to behave. Always listen to your heart!
    Beautiful poem by Frost.

    Quandary indeed…Trying harder & not quitting is sometimes just not the solution…
    Wishing doesn’t make things any better.
    Thanks for sharing the Robert Frost poem 🙂

    What a beautiful post about living in an awful sort of place after your divorce but finding happiness and peace. Having enthusiasm for life, no matter what life offers, is something that no one can ever take away. Right now, as I write this comment, I am sitting in the dining room and am watching the rain fall. It is beautiful. I can see that the trees will soon have their leaves, even from a distance. The grass is turning a vivid shade of green and the tulips are getting ready to open. There are people who would be unhappy to see the rainfall but, if they had enthusiasm for life, they would relish the sound of the rain and the color of the sky because, in a few days, the sun will come back for a visit.

    Kalpanaa, you aptly presented the state of quandary through Dickens, Frost, and your own experiences of life. The discourse of Gita was given in the battlefield only to bring Arjuna out from the state of quandary.

    i’m so glad you have the obvious strength to be able to take this step, when it is clearly a hard thing to do over there. Hard in many ways anywhere, of course. ~Liz
