The 25 year cycles of life

August 2021 is very special for me personally. 25 years ago in August 1996, I started private practice as a Physician in Borivali, the north west suburb of Mumbai, India’s commercial capital.

Now, 25 years later, my oldest daughter, Grace, at the age of 22, has embarked on her own journey as a working adult. She has joined as a Consultant to a firm in Delhi from the 1st of August, 2021, after majoring in Political Science.

This is also the month when my son Mark passed the 12th standard final state board exams. Due to the COVID pandemic, he did not have to give the final boards, and that is a different story altogether!

I can think of starting my journey towards retirement, I jokingly mentioned to my family. It is also time to hang up my parenting boots, I feel, and enjoy the benefits of having homeschooled three kids during the last two decades.

A quarter of a century now truly seems like something that I can get a grasp of, a moment in time that encompasses almost half of my life as of now.

We have also added two kittens to our family in July 2021.

Looking back, I am amazed at the way my life has unfolded and remain eternally grateful to God and the wonderful people who have blessed me in so many different ways in these years.

A quarter of a century later!

I have learnt so much, and grown so much, in these years.

The journey of life is best enjoyed with people, in loving relationships, where we can encourage one another to be a better version of who we were yesterday. And I can say that for me personally this has been absolutely true.
