Whoa! Seems just like yesterday, when I was reading posts about how to say it (Two Thousand Ten was definitely “not-in”!! – Twenty-Ten, it was to be).
And today it is already August, past its first week. Man! that was fast.
Sometimes I feel that life is just getting too fast for comfort. Hours running into days, and days running into weeks. Week after week passing me by. But in spite of this speedy journey of life, I feel 2010 has been a satisfying year so far.
I can safely say so, because a lot of things have now begun to fall into place. Especially after all the chaos in my life in 2009, I am a lot more at peace with myself.
- I lost 10 kgs (..and counting…) – that is an incredible achievement for me because so far in the past I never managed to lose any more than 1-2 kgs and usually always gained it back. This time it is different. I lost those unwanted kilos and have kept them off for a while now (Read all about it here). Slowly but surely, reaching towards my ultimate goal of 85 kgs in November 2010.
- I “finally” came around to taking music lessons. Learning the guitar was on my list for such a long time, that I can’t even remember when was the first time I expressed this desire. This year I was able to start taking guitar lessons and am totally loving it. The other great thing is that my enthusiasm for music has rubbed on my dear wife too. She started taking keyboard lessons this week onwards.
- After a lot of procrastination, I took an Executive Health Checkup this year. My goal is, starting 2010, this will become an annual affair.
- I found my groove on the job. Thanks to all the personal chaos, last year, I was pretty much lost at work. This year things are getting better.
It is August now, still about 5 months before the year ends. It is to be seen how the rest of it goes, Although I am pretty optimistic about it. There is one other thing that I would like to achieve this year. Well, “achieve” may sound a bit ambitious, but I will at least start off in that direction for sure. I want to simplify my life. Such a short sentence to write, but an mountainous task to execute! No time-lines here, only a will to begin and a long walk on this path. I will keep posting how I fare, from time to time 🙂
So how has the year been for you? Do share your fantastic thoughts with me by leaving a comment.
