Looking back for 10 years, things have changed for good. I could note down 5 major changes in my life.
- Started Writing Diary
- Hitchhiked to meet A.P.J.Abdul Kalam
- Didn't go to school to watch A.R.Rahman win Oscars
- Started respecting other's time
- Didn't have any respect for books or reading.
- Journaling and also blogging
- Hitchhiking to meet Strangers
- Writing a book on how I met A.R.Rahman
- Trying to share the message of respecting other's time
- Puts books and readers at first place
A lot has changed in my life.
I didn't have access to Internet in 2009. My best past time was to put songs in a home theatre and keep listening to lot of songs. I used to give myself time to listen to music no matter what I'm into. Right on Jan 1st 2009, I gave a thought of writing a diary. I didn't have anything interesting to write but, the moment I started writing, I could observe there's a lot I took granted for. I met amazing friends. I kept writing about them. I did a few adventures, I wrote about them. I had interesting conversations with friends. I wrote about them. In the year 2009, I met A.P.J.Abdul Kalam, wrote about the experience.
Cut to 2019
I'm constantly distracted by my phone. I listen to music but I experience everything in a shallow manner. I still write diary. I learnt to practice gratitude in each and every small thing. Have so many friends on the list yet, I write to only a few. I'm afraid, I took a huge step challenging myself to be out of my comfort zone. I'm moving to Rajasthan for a year. I give a lot of time to people whom I admire. The utmost I can give to others is time. I'm elated when someone respects my time as well. I learnt few things but also, i have to unlearn a lot of things. I'm uncertain about a few things. And I'm trying to be in peace with myself.
I can observe a lot of change in my thoughts & assumptions yet, I seem to be the same person with the same curiosity.
Will give it a more thought on observing major changes in my life.
