Here’s to 25! June 23, 2008

If Year 23 was about travel, then Year 24 was about being social – meeting a lot of wonderful people from around the world, making friends and nurturing those relationships. A day after turning 25, I’ve been wondering what kind of year lies ahead of me and I kind of get a feeling that this will be a year of more travel, being more social, but mostly importantly a year of better work. As a copywriter-blogger, I’ve been thinking deeply about what “better work” means to me. For me, better work would be work that I’d be proud of, creates a positive impact, is cause-worthy and makes me happy because I’ve set to do it. I’ve been telling myself that work need not be writing itself, it could be very different things, causes I’m passionate about or things that generally keep me happy. Somehow, I’ve in me that Year 25 will be much about the work I do. I consider the past year one of the most important ever in my life, however tumultuous it may have been, it did have its share of highs and blessings. I’m just recollecting about how I posted about my last birthday, and boy, a year did fly at the speed of light. For those of you who regularly read this blog, thank you for coming by. I’ve met some of my greatest friends from the little conversations on this blog and I thank them for being there. Looking back again, last year I committed to a few goals, some of which I did accomplish, like making it to Blogger Social. I’m in the last laps of my IGNOU degree and hopefully I’ll wrap it by Dec ’08. The dream date with WAP4 22683 should happen some day – but honestly, I suspect that intensity has mellowed a bit. For this year, I would just take off with a goal to celebrate life, enjoy work and smile more. Cheers to 25!
