The first day of new year is always exciting and full of positive energy. we are greeted with happy faces almost all around. We make new year resolutions. It’s a different story we forget to work on them. We look for the new year diary, So that we can fill it up with everyday ramblings only to find it empty at the end of the year. It is also the time when we look back and go through the previous year.
That’s me actually….
Last year started on a positive note as usual but nothing happened for the first two months. I realized it was me and I had to put more effort to achieve. So I started my consultancy in the first week of March. I knew it would be difficult. I knew I won’t get much work for the year or so. But what I didn’t expect were the hurdles at the personal level. I wasn’t prepared for them. The result was a low point within the first two month of startup.
Lost and frustrated, there was only one thing that was holding me together. Hope. Tried and tested over that last decade, It always worked for me. Fighting with the difficulty to focus, I took baby steps. A couple of months of walking, I found myself on the right path. I am still struggling but now I know which way to go.
For the last six years or so, The last three months of every year, spoilt the whole year for me. I was very cautious this time. I didn’t want to make foolish mistakes, Which I had already committed during the first half of the year. I was happy with the proceedings.
In the month of November, I traveled the Northern India. I felt the change after the journey. I gained a little bit of focus to continue. Alone or with companions, Doesn’t matter. That was the moment I decided to travel every year.
There were a few things I ticked off at the end of the year. Things I always wanted to do. Silly, laughable and maybe very easy to do for some. Here’s the list
– Setup an office
– Experience a snowfall
– Visit Indo-Pak Border
– Pee from a bridge
– Dance like no one’s watching
– Take a long, quiet drive at 2am
I wish to complete some more this year. Fingers crossed.
Oh!! And Happy new year 2014 to all my readers.
Make the most out of everyday and
