We are already five days into 2010. A whole decade gone. I am going to take time to reflect as to what have I actually achieved in the last 10 years. How ever I think at this juncture it is equally important to figure out what I would like out of the next decade.
I am in my fourth year of blogging. Im not as regular as I used to be. I have even been accused of changing my writing style. If anything, I have always written for myself. That I understand can bring about a lot of inconsistencies in writing but atleast the intention has been consistent. I plan to continue. I am going to make no promises to myself. I will take it as it comes. I have so much to talk about and share. I hope that some day I will.
I am making 2010 my year for career growth. While I have been struggling to get a solid footing in my field, I have always made everything else a priority. I have given time to family and friends and partner. This year it is going to be all about me. If that means no phone calls, or emails, or socializing so be it. I have great support from my partner and I am going to make this support count.
I am going to actively look out for read worthy blogs. I am going to broaden my horizon from personal to medical, politics and fashion blogs. I am also going to develop the patience and reading capacity to read posts that are longer than 500 words. My first step towards that goal was to read this post from a blogger that I have come to read and respect.
I want to say I will develop a hobby, get in shape and so and so forth. But then I have also decided to stick to what I do best. I do not lie! Hence I make no such statements.
I am going to try and keep fewer expectations from people around me. I am also going to take reactions less personally. Last year I struggled with keeping a friendship that has survived me for quite a while now. When things hit rock bottom I did away with all expectations even those of common courtesy, basic manners and some sensitivity. The results were miraculous.
For next year I would like to travel more. I am hoping that I get to go to one destination outside the US not including India and one inside. Fingers crossed for this one!
I’m excited about this year for me. I hope you are too.
