Day 1 of the New Year gives me a unique opportunity to reflect on how things were in the past and how they need to evolve as somebody who believes in the idea that 'measuring is growing'.
Having said that, I have been working on the list of resolutions for this splendid year 16 for the past one week and now I think I need to take it slow and not plan to do a lot of things. Need to take it easy and spend more time going out and soak in life.
The year was special one for a lot of us who got to the major milestone in life and got married, while another group who reached the milestone of the first year of bonding. Congratulations to all of you for keeping the spirits up and connecting in various ways. Few things which come to my mind are Rai, Mnx and Gokul's wedding, AD being there and about at each and every major event.
On a personal front, 2015 was a year of fitness and a debut in terms of the foreign trip. Running has now become an integral part of my daily routine and while trips within the countries are frequent, international trips is part of the plan/ resolutions for 2016. Was able to meet Ari, Basu, Sachin, Poly and it seems just last day Rai was here in Town and we had some interesting conversations on a range of topic.
Needless to say that people have a range of emotions for the 2016. For some it's a reason for celebrations and a fresh start while for some feel it doesn't change anything and it's only a number. As I sit here thinking about how I am going to approach life, and the best songs of 2015 (playlist) setting the tone for the super year it's going to be, can’t stop thinking about this great group we created some 8 years back. Wish you all a great 2016 and I can say this without a shred of doubt that for LOCians are in a unique position to start or continue with the momentum to continuously grow and strive for happiness or keep it.
As I close this first note, I urge all of you to think about two lists. If making lists work for you it will be easier for you to do it, but if lists are not your thing, just take two blank sheets of paper and title them bucket list and list of 2016. Don’t restrict your imagination and go ahead and write down what you want to do. If you are someone like me, you will get stuck at being clueless about what is that exactly you want to do in life and that is ok. Just start small and write down things like visiting places and meeting people. Things like calling someone, regularly or just once will also be a superb item in the list. And you don’t have to prepare the list at one go, keep it handy and keep editing the list.
Whatever you do, don’t forget to enjoy! You get to live just once, make the most of it.
