In Case You’re Wondering What I’m Up To #FridayReflections

I’ve been hinting at changes for the last couple of months. In case you’re wondering what I’m up to, let me know what the two major changes are.
First, we’re moving home – within the same colony we currently live in – to my parents’ home that they very generously gifted to us. Having lived there before marriage, it’s really homecoming for me.
The second piece of news is that I’m setting up a small business – to offer offline training, coaching and writing services. I’ve rented a small space, also in the same colony, and start on 1st August 2018. The Frangipani Creative is really something I’ve wanted to do for quite a while now, but didn’t work up the courage to do. Not so surprisingly, it was a series of very difficult and heartbreaking events that have pushed me to launch out on my own. I’m taking the first few months just to get perspective and sort out priorities. Creating this space, is moving me a lot closer to my dreams.
I’m enjoying the place I am at in life. I took time to pause. Now I’m looking forward to all the  pause-abilities (a phrase I borrowed) and I’m daring the dream like Linus:
What do you want to be when you grow up? 🙂

    I liked what Linus had to say. I even made D read it and of course, the question came what is outrageously happy. I wish you all the best, Corinne, with your new initiative. May you be very successful with Frangipani Creative and the moving to your parents’ house works out for good.

    Heartiest congratulations Corinne! Wishing ‘The Frangipani Creative’ and you a very prosperous and fruitfully engaged times ahead.
    I am sure the previous experiences have handed you a bag of ‘lessons learnt’ and that you had left the burden of hurt feeling way back. Thankfully all that is over…
    Wish you a very happy and warm home coming Corrine. May you find each corner of the house in new light!
    And yes…be outrageously happy!

  16. Vishal Bheeroo Vishal Bheeroo July 30, 2018
