Three goals before the big one threeSeptember 11, 2012
After such a long time, it feels so relaxing to go through all the blogs I follow. It's strange how therapeutic it is, and I hope my blog brings a similar response to however many read it. I'm glad I took the time out to do so; it even gave me an idea for how to spend the last few months of 2012!
Elsie of A Beautiful Mess wrote an inspiring post on a few goals she made for the rest of the year. The second I read it, I could think of three goals I'd like to make. So, here they are:
1. Get yourself out there and make new friends: Moving to a new, rather fast-moving city is tough when you don't know many people around. Granted I have some family to turn to, and I'm very grateful for that, but after a month in the city I can't say I've met many people. So, a goal for the next few months is to get out and meet new people around the area.
2. Experiment and explore, as much as possible: It's overwhelming how many things there are to do around new york. It's also wonderful that one can be whoever they choose to, because no one really cares. Such a contrast from all the eyes that are usually on you in Delhi. So, I might as well take advantage of that, right?
3. Hold on to the things that matter: It's so easy to forget the things that matter when you are busy trying to figure stuff out. These can be things like keeping in touch with friends and family, or something as basic as laughing. So, I felt it would be a good idea to make it a goal.
My goals are simple, and very do-able. The more complex ones have/will go in my list of 25 things to do before turning 25 (yikes!). I'm up to 15 tasks now and seem to have blanked out for the moment. The list will be up as soon as it's complete. Till then, I hold on to these three.
