This post is for The Write Tribe New Year Prompt and for UBC Day 2
2013 was a good year
. I moved into my own apartment with my husband ridding ourselves of the repugnant blood sucking landlords
once and for all! My parents and sister still love me very much, as much as they did the year before or maybe even more. My husband still manages to cope with my tantrums with a smiling face and has got better at it with every passing year. I still am working and living life on my own terms, well almost! I didn’t strangle any narrow-minded Neanderthal for his obnoxious thoughts on women, which is good. I applied for my Voter ID, quite late but nevertheless! Also, I managed to spend an entire year without boiling my despicable manager in a cauldron of hot oil. All in all a year well spent!
2014! What do you have in store for me?
Perhaps it’s apt that I begin 2014 with the resolve to find more time for myself, more time to do what I actually want to do.
Waking up every morning with the realization that I absolutely detest the place I work in is not really a great feeling. So maybe it is time for me to try out a few options, find a new job. If not then perhaps just come to terms with my place of work until something better turns up. And yes I should stop wasting time moping about my mangers for they just belong to an incorrigible breed not worth my time! Perhaps I just need to learn to relax more. Smile more maybe and just take one day at a time this year!
I’ve never really been good at following the ‘forgive and forget ideology’. Therefore I think to prune the leaves in my heart’s garden and get rid of all the unpleasant memories would be a great start to a new year. What’s done is done, what’s broken can’t be mended. Bitterness in heart is never healthy and I wish to get rid of it.
Family! What would one do without them, right? I wish I spend more time with my family this year. I hope in some way I’m able to contribute to their happiness, success and health. Nothing else matters, does it?
Patience, I’m in dire need of this quality, really! I am so edgy and anxious when things don’t go my way. As a consequence I end up sulking the whole time until ofcourse my husband or sister sits me down and gets me to just breathe. It’s damaging and I genuinely wish to change that. So 2014 is the year for inculcating patience and positivity in my reckless soul!
If there is anything apart from my family that keeps my life on track, it is my writing, my blog, undoubtedly. And I wish to do more of it in 2014. Writing is the sedative that keeps me sane. It makes everything better and I need it more than anything. It is also the only strand to exodus from the asphyxiating world of Software I’m trapped in. So more writing, more blogging than 2013 in 2014.
I guess it all boils down to being with family; feeling content and happy and doing what I love doing. This is what I wish for myself in 2014, my resolve if you would call it that. What do you wish for? I would love to know!
