Time to retrospect

March and April are the months where most of the local new years take place in India. Just last week, we celebrated “Gudi padwa”, “Ugadi” and “Cheti Chand”. We will have the Baisakhi, “Poila Boishakh” and Vishu in the coming weeks. These new years have a bigger influence on our social lives than 1st jan. Firstly they create a festive atmosphere where people go to meet their families. Hence on these days, the roads are generally desserted. The sweet shops are full of delicacies. Everyone seems to be dressed in bright outfits.

I take this time to review my progress on resolutions taken on 1st Jan. In most of the cases I had given up but this year I came across a book, which gave a nice method of dividing the resolutions to different quarters of the year instead of taking them all at once. Well I did that and took just 2 resolutions in the first quarter. Well I have not been able to complete both but I have been able to pursue them which is still better than the previous years. One of my last year’s resolution was to blog. Well I have been able to blog at regular intervals, thanks to <a href="”>articles on pursuing blogs and the funny stories.

Let us hope I complete my this year’s resolution and welcome the next year with a renewed enthusiasm to improve myself.

After a long day!!!

We make resolutions every year and break them. This year I had decided I will be more organized and read a few more books than last year. As they say “With an inch its a cinch, with yard its hard”. This year I had planned that I will do a little bit everyday to remain focused on my resolutions. I keep numerous things to do every day. Today’s tasks were simple. They were:

– To read atleast 10 pages of a book(which I am trying to read for the last 3 weeks but somehow not able to complete)

– To tidy atleast one part of the room if not all

Today morning I got up on time but it was cold morning and I rescheduled the alarm and went to sleep. Ultimately I woke up just in time to get ready and catch the bus in a jiffy. After I returned home, I just sat down. As for write here, write now, I don’t feel like doing anything. Somehow the dinner is made and I am having it. I feel guilty for not doing even the reading bit. I am not feeling like giving any exertion to my eyes. The television is on and there is something going on but I am not watching it. Just to ensure that there is some noise its on. It would be great to start meditation but I will not add it to my list because again I will not do it. I just wish we could sleep longer during winter hours and the days were slightly longer than 24 hours. Let me know if anyone else has had such a feeling and if there are any tips to face it.
