Wishlist for the New year :)


It's a brand New Year and I thought I MUST sneak in to this ignored space at-least now. First and foremost, Wish you and your loved ones a Very Happy and Prosperous New Year 2015 !  May the new year bring to you everything your heart's desire and let the coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness.. :)

Although, theoretically, any day can be a new start, there is always an excitement in the air when the old calendar gets replaced by the new - isn't it? We all resolve(at-least mentally) to be that better person we always wanted to be.. Even-though, in most cases, we hardly stand by them for a week/month, and yeh I am no exception ;) However, does it prevent me from reflecting on some changes that I really want in this year - stuff that can give me a sense of excitement and fulfillment? Definitely No.  So here is my wish list for the year..

1) Read, Learn , Make
    I have a huge backlog of "to-read" books and "to-take" courses in my wish list and I am planning to clear them one by one. Planning to complete 1 book a month and at least 2 courses this year. And need to remind myself to make some art - write or draw or build or grow new stuff - all those small things that makes me happy

2) Pick a few good habits
    I had complained about my wardrobe item's obsession to be size zero and for some reason they are doing it with a vengeance now. So I don't have an option other than to shed those extra pounds and any delay is going to warrant a complete wardrobe replacement. I know this is the toughest challenge given my crazy eating habits and laziness. Some small steps that I'm planning to take are
 1) Drink at least 2 litres of water daily
 2) Eat 3 proper meals a day n not their chocolate/snack substitutes
 3) Include 4-5 servings of fruits n vegetables daily
 4) Exercise/walk at least 5 days a week

3) Take a vacation
   Of late, although I have traveled (rather shuttled between places) a lot, there has never been a real vacation or a relaxed trip. In fact, even our honeymoon trip is pending even after 2 years!!! So I really wish to make at least one long vacation this year and yeh short ones are always welcome :)

4) And for this abstract one
Try, try out everything out there that interests me (yes I have a long list here)
Experiment – some fail, some work. Learn and move on, to another one


Finally, whatever is in the list, It's certain that we make those things happen which is something that we really, really want. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, I will surprise myself :) 

It is said that to heighten the chances of succeeding with your resolutions, make sure to tell lots of people what you are doing. I would be happy to find someone with the same or similar resolutions to be my change-buddy - we can support one another as we go through the process. Anyone?
