Like most people at the start of the New Year I want the year to be far better than the year that has gone and all the other previous years. The reality is that this feeling does not last long. I get into the grind of the day to day and end up doing the same things as all the previous years.
Why don’t I change? I think this is because change involves doing things I do not like doing to get a better result. I think now I need to change.
I hope the process of blogging will makes me change to get in life what I would like. So what is it I want to in 2013?
1) I am human and need companionship with the right person. I have had some fun. I need something more serious. Have you been to an Indian wedding? It is the first question people ask - "Are you married now? With all that education you can't find a woman?" It is so annoying!
2) I want to go out more – In the past I have always made an excuse about too much work. I was just too lazy to make an effort and take a risk of making a fool of myself.
3) I want to go on a holiday not with a group but with a gorgeous woman.
4) Lose weight and buy new clothes – this is where I have control! This is the year I want to lose it!
I am sure you will have noted none of the above are to do with work. I had a sleepless night on New Year’s Eve and on New Year’s Day. It really made me think. Work now will be to support me for the things I want to do. It will no longer be my only purpose in life.
Come 2014 will I still be single, fat, working 6 days a week and not been on a holiday? I may be in the same position, but one thing I do not want to say to myself is I sat on my fat ass and did nothing like all the previous years!
