2012 ~ Half Down

7 months already gone in this year and the 8th month running…. Phew!! This year has been like some running race where I am simply clueless how fast the times seem to have flown away. It seems just yesterday that we were talking about New Year resolutions and here I am feeling sad about the progress so far. Sharing with you guys some of the things I am feeling right now:
  Yup this is Me..running towards my goal

Source: Google Images

I NEED:

  • To let go of a few things and not let unwanted things affect me.
  • To badly take some time off and relax before my body screams for a break!
  • To keep my thinking cap on constantly.
  • To remember my mistakes and not repeat them.
I HOPE:
  • I am able to achieve at least 70% of what I intended to when this year began.
  • I don’t disappoint my loved ones who have big hopes on me.
  • To see the silver lining soon amidst the grey clouds I am currently surrounded with.
  • To understand what is expected out of me as a human being.

I WORRY:

  •  About the unaccomplished things that I am yet to start. I am worried I might not be able to complete all that I have thought about for this year.
  • About many insignificant things I am surrounded with which are beyond my control.
  • About not being able to write someday as I run out of ideas.
  • About the new changes life is awaiting me as my life is going to undergo a huge transition in the coming few months.

I LOVE:

  • My blog each day much more than the other. It is witness to the fact that I have grown as a person in the last 1.5 years. My thoughts, my views and my opinions reflect a serious change that I am going through with the help of all the lessons life is teaching me at each step.
  • Being able to get up each day with renewed vigour and look forward to new challenges.
  • Living each moment as it comes filled with its uncertainty and surprises.
  • Holding my hands in a prayer looking up to Him as soon I see a tiny tremor of trouble erupting in my life.

I SMILE:

  • On seeing the lovely comments I keep receiving on my posts. It makes me feel on top of this world!
  • On being so busy sometimes that I can barely manage to have time for anything else.
  • On feeling the love, care and concern I am surrounded with.
  • On being able to enjoy all the beautiful small moments of joy I get to the fullest.

P.S: This is a feel-good post for two reasons.One I have been having a very hectic schedule off late and I really need a reason to feel good. Secondly off late I feel my blog has been having very serious posts, hence trying to write something on the lighter note.

P.P.S: This post is inspired by a post written by Aaekay HERE. Though she very lovingly asked me to make a monthly checksheet like her, I found a shortcut and made a yearly one ;)

  1. This is indeed a feel-good post :) :) I just made a sudden decision last week and I have been grappling with that these past few days...wondering if the move I made was the right one or not....Your post made me realize that it was the right thing to do indeed :) :)

    I felt good reading it :) Thank you! It's been wonderful knowing you through this space and I hope you continue writing for the longest time ever ;)

  2. Wow. It's good to see you getting on track, rather, keeping track of your resolutions and goals. I haven't been able to do much about the things I thought I'd do. I never really thought I wouldn't have that much of time. :|

    Good luck to you, for achieving not just 70% but 100% of your resolutions! I hope to get at least 20% across ;) You're so smart, I'm sure you'd be able to do all you need/hope/love to do! :)

  4. Wow! Nice checksheet! :)
    I hope the love and smile eradicate the worry in your list! But, you know sometimes it's nice to worry. It shows that one is concerned about something.
    Good luck to you with achieving all you need, want and dream! :)

    P.S: Thanks for that mention to my blog! Really appreciate it.. :)
    And I've striked off a few from my checksheet yay! :D

    1. Thanks for your lovely wishes Aaekay :)

      I understand what you are saying as I felt the same thing after I wrote this down. My first reaction was - Not Bad! If I could reach here, can also manage to go further!

      Joy would have been incomplete without a sorrow like ways achievement would have felt pale without a worry.

      You deserved that special mention dear, after all your post inspired Me :P

  6. This is such a nice way to put the half-yearly (a little more than half though ;-)review. That reminds me I was planning a post on similar lines.
    The worry list is understandable but not at all needed, Privy, IMO. Yes, we do think we are racing against time and still are far from accomplishing our dream goals. But do take time out to savour this time and moment too.
    Phases keep coming and going. The new life will be different but being prepared for the change will give you the strength to embrace the change. And, lastly, you wont run out of ideas to write, ever :-)
    All the best!

      Thanksss Uma... I will be waiting for your post on these lines!

      Yes you are very true. Sometimes in running towards the goal we fail to notice the beautiful moments and enjoy them. Will surely keep your wonderful words in mind everytime worry seems to creep into me.

      Thanks a ton!!

  8. Sometimes all it takes is a shout out to the world and a person can accomplish a couple of things, the release of positive energy within that spreads to those near or in this case, who've read your words.

  9. I love visiting your blog, Me, because you always make me think and reflect on my life's journey. And, your list here is so candid and honest; I do hope you are able to let go and let God when it comes to those worries, my dear. It's good for us to remind ourselves who is really in control.:)
    Lovely post! Made me so glad I dropped by.

  10. Sounds like you had a fruitful year so far. You're on your way to ending the year strong. I tend to worry about some of the same things you do, but I'm trying to remember that it's the things we do now that plays a role in shaping the future, so best to concentrate on the present. :-)

  12. Just being able to list and reflect on where you are in your year/life is a huge accomplishment that most aren't able to do! Give yourself a big pat on the back and credit for having goals and achieving even part of them. Goals I believe are made to stretch and challenge us and even when we don't accomplish them, we learn. Blessings to you!!

    1. Your words are so beautiful, reading them first thing in the morning has truly made my day or perhaps week. I will remember them every time I feel down about no having achieved all that I wanted to.

      Very true - sometimes having the courage to accept where you are is an achievement in itself!

      Thanks so much Lynne Watt for such encouraging comments and being here!

  14. It is always wonderful to know a person's thoughts :)

    About the unaccomplished things that I am yet to start. I am worried I might not be able to complete all that I have thought about for this year.
    - put your worries behind for you have made a start :)

    To badly take some time off and relax before my body screams for a break! - Can I say the magic word spa, books, music and some pampering? :) ah, alright! magic words!

    My blog each day much more than the other. It is witness to the fact that I have grown as a person in the last 1.5 years. My thoughts, my views and my opinions reflect a serious change that I am going through with the help of all the lessons life is teaching me at each step. - trust me, it really really shows. it really really does :)

    Being able to get up each day with renewed vigour and look forward to new challenges.
    - loved this so much!

    Holding my hands in a prayer looking up to Him as soon I see a tiny tremor of trouble erupting in my life. - Amen!

    And now, since I have copied your post and made a post of a comment --
    On seeing the lovely comments I keep receiving on my posts. It makes me feel on top of this world!
