And just like that January is gone! My strategy of sitting back and watching 2016 unfold is paying off so far. Things are already not going my way (LOL!) but at least I'm not stressing myself out over them. Instead I'm accepting things as they happen and moving on.

There's stress when there are expectations. 2015 was a mixed bag of a year for me (and that's much better than the last few years). It was mostly nice - I was on a break from work (a 365 day vacation!), I traveled extensively, I spent a lot of time with family & friends. I felt blessed and grateful. But I did not necessarily get the things I wanted and worked towards. Therefore I decided that my strategy for 2016 would be to do my bit towards my goals & desires, then sit back and watch the year unfold.

January has been a mixed bag already. I had a short but fun-filled vacation with family, and I became an aunt for the very first time! To a beautiful niece (born on Republic Day, so she'll never have to crib about having to work on her birthday)!! The downside was that something I was really hopeful about fell through :(

But onwards & upwards I go. I have a few things to look forward to over the next two months - my sister's visit, a holiday with my girl friends that I'm super excited about, and the beginning of a health initiative. Rest of the things will work out as they are meant to.

Here's to a heart-warming February for all of us.

It is just human to have expectations. I don't see anything wrong with that.
Onwards and Upwards it shall be. All the best!

@SA - It's natural to have expectations, of course! My point is that expectations, when they aren't met, lead to disappointment and frustration. Thank you for your comment and best wishes :)

Taking a break from a job needs lots of courage and I am impressed and happy you could do that. Sometimes before trying out for something we need to to store energy by spending some time not working towards that goal, now probably you have reached that phase where things shall go well :)
