A new season, fresh beginning and, perhaps, re-born again,
as we set aside the past and look out for new challenges, joys and aspirations.
For once, I have decided to turn a new leaf, forget past disappointments and zoom ahead in the new season.
What remained intact is hope, aspirations, dreams and my quest for love, happiness, friendship and emotional fulfillment.
Happy New Year 2014.
May the new season and change in calendar brings lotsa love, unlimited happiness and fulfillment of all your dreams.
I hate new year resolutions coz I find it a hard nut to crack and almost impossible to follow the empty promises made. All things said and done, there are certain things I gotta do this year in my quest for fulfillment, happiness, seeking the path of love and start building on my dreams.
1. Dig the drafts
I hate telling this every year. There are so many unfinished scripts on both blogs that I left mid-way and I will complete them to post them. There are two short stories and will work on one of them aaj only. I have also two scripts for short stories, college days memoirs in Pune and Mumbai, yes..my novel that I left mid-way and gotta be at ma creative best. It’s a rom-com novel that I started working sometimes back.
I plan to work on two projects for the net, one is an e-book on my initial struggling days as a journalist and, believe me, there are so much to tell, the queer characters, fucking up process where I hanged my head in shame and it will make a funny fiction closer to my reality. I just read a novel by a journalist Rashmi Kumar ‘Stilletos in the Newsroom’ which is so close to my reality. It inspired me and, hopefully, I can gift you all the e-book toward the end of the year. On the anvil, there is also an e-book of poem which I am dying to write and which I believe that it is do-able and not so distant to do.
3. Relocating to Sheikh-Land
It is a huge move and an important decision that I gotta take that I know will have a huge impact on my life. I have postponed my plans to re-locate to the Sheikh-land for years and I have shied away from my plans. Not this time coz I have decided to re-locate to Sheikh land, read Dubai or Qatar for that matter. I know it is going to be a very huge and important decision in this phase of my life that will impact life with mom but one gotta move at this stage of life since I cannot afford life to laugh back on me. I don’t wanna live a life of regret. Need to pull my socks and start applying for jobs in the Middle East.
I am lame on savings money and whatever I earn go to the drains at the end of the month. I cannot afford to live without a back up plan since there will be drainy days and time to sort out my debts and for that I am giving myself six months time. It is very important to lead a life free of cash crunch and debt as it takes a toll on one’s life. Plus, for my travel plans and work opportunities, I need to have some decent savings.
I love travelling, but, unfortunately, this year I was not able to travel due to the lack of savings. So, this year, I promise myself that I will travel to few places in India in December,meet my loved ones and explore new places. Travel means happiness for the soul and the latter shall quench its thirst.
I have shied away from being in a relationship for quite a few years and, while being single, is not the end of the world, I am looking to be in a relationship with someone since it is the biggest teacher in the world. Hope I meet someone with whom I can connect on an emotional and intellectual level as well as a being free from prejudice, is a creative person and what not!!!
I haven’t drawn a near impossible targets that shall be difficult to achieve but simple and practical things. Nopes! It’s not New Year resolutions, far from that. Let’s make a pledge that there shall be no war, we will be less angry and indulge in emotional outburst, be a better person, make love and not war, less poverty, respect women and there shall be less crime. Let’s make the world a better place to live.
Yeah! I forget! Wishing you a very fulfilling and happy sex life as an expression of emotion and energy. Let’s not repress this beautiful feeling of love, being wanted as human beings.
Once again, a veryyyy happyyyy new yearr 2014.
