Switch Off !

Tonight is last night of year 2010. First decade of 21st Century closes tonight.

Oh Boy, what a journey so far !

Year 2000 I had stepped into college. This last decade, got me out of my family business, got me on a job which I love more than ever. Gave me friends which I care and crave for, gave me peers which I respect, gave me few adversaries which turned out to be my best contributors. It entrusted time and again that trust is important. It made me see good part of my health, and taught me a lesson when I ignored it (lesson, which I have swear to keep for life). It lead me to have love of my life, it shifted me towards passion of my life, it decided what I would probably be doing for rest of my life. It gave me right opportunities, responsibilities and good reasons to take breather, ponder and move on. I failed, I succeeded, but didnโ€™t stopped, something just didnโ€™t let me stop – journey itself had been so eventful now I realize. And, indeed it was cheerful enough for me to decide and write about it ! ๐Ÿ™‚

But tonight is no other night. It is the time to be patient and enjoy for what I have received so far. To love myself and my family, my country even more, and to decide and do more for them. Am no more the un-directed beam of shear strength and energy (as were the words of my first ever feedback I received at work โ€“ still remember AVS for that). I can feel and sense my direction – the beam is more narrow now, with more power, light and life in it. More importantly, I know I dont have to keep it on all the time โ€“ focus is best used when brought right at the moment of capturing the shot. Take it or leave it, but never regret it. Whatโ€™s the point if I dont enjoy what I do, if am not playful, if am not up for the game.

Time to switch off 2010 now, indeed. 2010 and this decade has lighten up my life already, I feel to have it absorbed in my thoughts. Tomorrow I will say Hello to the new Decade, 2011. Which I am sure will be equally exciting. It will bring fun rides-and-tides for sure, and I will sail as I have so far. Now I have even more people besides me, who care for me, and who I love. Next decade, will all be for them, and for more & more smiles!

Good Bye 2010, good and thanks, that you came ! ๐Ÿ™‚
