This is the first blog post in my website and its about new year resolutions.
My very first resolution would be to post one blog a week. There is so much to write everyday and isn’t that what I like to do as a writer? But somehow writing a blog has taken me so long. I can’t blame my two boys for this. They are lovely just being themselves. Well, the two year old does take a lot of my time.
Second, I will give first priority to my spiritual practices. Unless my inside is calm and happy, there is no way I can function as a member of a respectable community of human beings. Before I click the formidable Twitter or Facebook icons, I will determine to complete my spiritual practices of the day. Phew! I feel quite ashamed I need a resolution for this. Bhagavad Gita says a controlled mind is a friend while an uncontrolled mind is an enemy. I resolve to befriend my mind.
Third, I need to start my second book and complete it by the end of the year. A lot of research that requires travel is pending. I have to find my way around the obstacles and aim for the rhino!
Fourth, need to narrow down my creative instincts. I can’t write a novel, picture book for kids, Facebook posts, blog, twitter posts apart from painting, making YouTube videos and sew. All this along with being a full time mom! I must be out of my mind. Now that I put it down in this post, I can see that I have been crazy. But my dilemma is in choosing which one to let go. I want to do everything. But soon I will have to narrow down to concentrate on writing the next book. (Hope to give you a peek in to the second book soon.)
Fifth and my final resolution is to do physical yoga every day and do mental yoga by teaching myself not to work for the benefit of honour. But to do work as a duty. The means is the end by itself.
Wish you all a happy new year!
