New Year – New Resolutions

Hello Folks, how are you all? Yet another year has gone and here I stand with not so much of satisfaction with What I have not done in the previous year. I know to start a blog post with a negative tone but you know realising what you haven’t done in the past and finding ways to fix all those errors is a start of a New Beginning. Apart from a few happy things happened last year I have embraced lots of bad habits and attitudes in my personal and professional life (Here, I confessed).

So, I decided to start the new year with a New resolution. I’m a man who has never taken any resolutions because I know, I wouldn’t adhere to them anyways. Why false promise and start a new year? I always have goals and try to work towards achieving them that too I started doing this just a couple of years back but not long ago. So, Why resolution this year alone you might ask? Well, because my life is messed up or should I say I messed it up so much? That sounds better.

Last year, I had to become a responsible person owing to having a Life partner and to be true to these words she has become my partner in crime at most of the things I do which I love and this year we both are going to be even more responsible because we are bringing a life to this earth. She is trying her best to be more responsible and shouldn’t I do my part the least? So, this resolution is all about making my life more productive, organising my life and having to have more leisure time to spend time with my family also dedicating enough time to my other activities apart from work.

A good friend of mine introduced me to the term Bullet Journaling and I am sure many would have come across this practice. I myself was very much overwhelmed with the number of things we can do with this. I decided to really start doing this but again the lazy person in me didn’t quite exactly adhere to the process called “Writing regularly” thus the delay in this blog post which should have practically been written and released in the first week of January. I thought it is never too late and here is the post. This post is basically me informing the world that I am starting something new and please do shed some light on How many of you started Journaling or Bullet Journaling and How helpful was it or How organised your life turned? This post is also about a constant reminder for me that I should regularly Journal and adhere to the goals I set for myself. Here are some of the pictures I took while setting up my Bullet Journal. Hope, it is not as messier as I am thinking it is.

Hope, the narrative of this post is readable and Thank you once again for everyone who supported me through toughest of times, Thank you for the ones who really encouraged me to push my boundaries and Thank you to my Lovable wife who constantly encourages me to do the things I like instead of being a roadblock :P. Happy New year 2019 to all of you and have a wonderful year ahead.

P.S: Last year few might have seen one of my posts being re-directed to Medium websites and you will see this activity a lot this year. I have decided to segregate my blog posts, especially the Movie Reviews to be shared on Medium and other posts will be available here for people to read. Thank you.

Congratulations, first of all, Pratip and Swathi. Parenthood brings a lot of new beginnings in life. My best wishes for everything ahead. Bullet journaling can skyrocket your productivity if you take it seriously. You’ve thought about it and organized so well. Do regard this possession with love, respect and care. You are sure to have several accomplishments to remember at the end of the year.

Bullet Journal is a new term for me! I learned it through this blog post of yours. Thank you for that. I’ll be reading more on it.

I wish you and your wife (and your little one!) a very happy new year! Blogging about resolutions actually help you stick to them more than if you don’t blog about them. Good luck!
