Delay is NOT Defeat

image

Days, Months, even years have passed by
And all I have done is to try and try.
Once bitten, twice shy
But I couldn’t do anything except for cry.

Attempt after attempt, I cried, I tried.
But the results never happened to be in my stride.
Am I too dumb – not worthy of this?
Should I just stop and never dream of bliss?

And there out of nowhere, I heard a voice so sweet
Stop crying, it said, and stand up on your feet.
Work hard instead of wasting precious time
Success will come to you when your effort is at its prime.

Don’t be disheartened that your success seems to delay
Keep working hard and one day, I promise, it will pay.
Don’t lose hope, don’t cease to pray
Your hard work has already got you this far away.

Success will come to you when the time is right
And then you’ll forget this sorrow and have a future bright.
Now for the exam, when you take your seat,
Please keep in mind – delay is not defeat!

New Year, New Me?

image

Another year has begun and in a jiffy the first month is already over. Why is time running sooo fast? I swear I can’t think of anything substantial that I have done or achieved in this month of January. Nothing. Zilch.
Is this how I want to spend the rest of my year? No ways! I have thought and thought about this all day today and the only thing I could conclude upon, is that I’m going to make a difference this year.
I am going to make this year count. I’m going to do something fun, something crazy, something nice and make it memorable. I’m determined to make this year much better than the last year (which totally sucked! Lesser than 2014, but it did suck alright). I don’t know how I’m going to achieve this as yet. Maybe time will tell.

But for now I’m going to make a to-do list. Like a bucket list for the year 2016. I’ll try my best to tick of all of them. Who knows, at the end of the year I may actually have something to smile about when I think of 2016.
Sharing the same with you’ll as we’re going to be in this together. Here goes.

1. Travel – Visit at least 2 new cities.

2. Do something that I have never done in my life before.

3. Social service – help someone/something through charity/donations/actions.

4. Get a decent job.

5. Make a friend who resides outside Mumbai.

6. Learn to cook.

7. Get at least one tick on the “Life bucket list” (Let me know if you’ll are interested in my ultimate bucket list – in the comments section below)

8. Reading goals – 10 books

9. Get the desired weight and fitness. (VERY IMPORTANT)

10. Get 50 followers on this blog. (Wheeeeee)

Yeah, that’s all that I could think of which is actually achievable in this year.

What do you guys think of this list of mine? Do any of you’ll have a list like this? What’s in it? Is there anything that I should add to this list of mine?  DO LET ME KNOW.

Love always,
-A.
