Its that time of the year again. Its time to hear the Christmas carols in the air and to eagerly wait for the New Year’s Eve. Personally, I am not much of a party animal but I still can’t help get all excited around this time of the year. For me, a brand new year means time to reflect back on the year that was, new beginnings, new resolutions to start the year with, the resolutions to be a better person, do more things with life and to start over.
2009 was mostly a good year for me. I have finally embarked on a new journey. I went back to school again. After years of pursuing this idea, I finally got a scholarship and joined a program. The last six months have been a bittersweet experience. First of all, when you realize that all the people around you are so much younger, it does make you feel a little out of place. More on than in another post, but as of now I’ve finally done it. In 2009.
I ran my first marathon this year. Running has been a passion since a long time. Running a marathon was on my” to-do-before I’m 30”-list. After 2 years of living in a running –crazy nation, I finally ran the marathon and finished it. I am proud. In spite of the many runs I have participated in this year, the marathon has been my proudest.
Finally, I did start my blog too. After years of contemplating whether to blog or not, this year I finally took the plunge. Thanks to a bunch of my friends who made so many genuine friends through their blog and shared their stories, I decided to go for it too. I hope I make some good friends too.
2009, with sadness I bid thee goodbye. With anticipation and hope, I welcome ye too, 2010. May you bring happiness and contentment.
