To retrospect what’s gone,
To plan the upcoming,
To cherish the past and,
To expect better future,
January reminds me of December, when I decide (firmly) to create New Year Resolution but seldom abide by it. So was the January of 2011. One winter morning in Delhi, feet mostly in socks, two layers of woolens and hot cuppa coffee in hand, I sat in the misty portico warming my brain with what resolutions I can create and follow. (I don’t have to mention it separately that most of them have gone for a toss :P)
I kept a goal in front of me – To read 70 books in 2012 (I hate myself for reading only 15 😦 )
Maintaining a Balance sheet of Personal expenses – I followed it for some days, but the intensity faded by the coming day
Invest some amount at least in stock market – Forget about investing, I hardly had anything to even save 😦
I have managed to follow some resolutions religiously though, but not many worth a mention.
Sigh. Let it be. I think this year too in December I will create a Resolution – 2013 sheet and will try to follow it religiously 😛
The January 2011, specifically will remind me of Gurgaon. The chilly weather, fog all day long and bike rides in such a weather and the quilt I used to cover myself with to keep me warm. Also not to forget the “makke di roti and sarson da saang” – this still brings water in my mouth.
It’s almost December 2012 now. Time to look forward to January again, this time January 2013 🙂
