Happy 27 to me! July 8, 2010

Posted by Arun Rajagopal in Conversations.

I have an annual tradition of writing a blog post on my birthday (June 22). Usually, it is a recap of the best of the year that went by. This year, I wanted to go off the beaten path. Year #26 was one of the most transformational years ever in my life. A year that caught me by the ears and gave me a thorough shakedown. A year that revealed a lot of me to me. And many other things. However, I am very thankful for the year and everything that came with it. The focus of this year’s post is on the future. Rather, a couple of lessons/observations from last year that I hope will be a part of my journey in the years to come.

  1. Everything that happens is for the best.
  2. Rule #1 works only if you believe in it.
  3. It is important to keep moving ahead.
  4. Whatever has happened has happened. The future is always promising if I believe in it.
  5. Higher, faster and stronger but without losing my essence and being.
  6. The world may be unfair, but life is always fair.
  7. I believe that I am watched over and taken care of.
  8. The universe always conspires to help the dreamer. I will dream on.
  9. I am ready to move away from wine and white rum.
  10. I am the difference.

Even though #9 doesn’t apply to me, I will save this list as I find it to be a good reminder. As Yoda might say if he spoke proper English, “You are wise for one so young.” Somewhere in there he’d call you a grasshopper, but I’m too lazy to do that.
Thank you for the introspection. Copying your list saves me time and any semblance of self-analysis (okay, I do have an MA in counseling).

We should not be ashamed to tell the world what our real age is. We should be thankful and grateful that we are able to reach that certain age. Its good that you are able to wake up, have a new perspective in life at a young age when it is still not too late to change.
