Happy 2014 with Monkton Mondays!

So here we go again! A New Year is upon us with endless potential or pitfalls depending on how we choose to look at it πŸ˜‰ and how well we learned last year’s lessons.

This year end has been quite spectacular for me! I spent Christmas and New Year in Goa surrounded by family and friends, music, dancing, much laughter and more alcohol πŸ˜› I love the upbeat mood a good, hearty celebration puts me in πŸ™‚ There’s promise in the air – of good times to come, of obstacles overcome, of dreams fulfilled and goals achieved…and even if it is fleeting & largely illusionary – who cares πŸ˜› It’s good while it lasts and I for one choose to savour the feeling.

2013 as I said in my previous post or I think I did, (it’s too long ago to remember!) was another transitional year for us as a family. We moved from Bombay to Bangalore and are just beginning to find our footing in our new city. 2014, will hopefully see us getting more comfortable  – in our city, our home and in our skins! It’ll be a journey as always, a roller coaster of a ride I have no doubt πŸ˜‰ But I feel good about it in this moment and that’s what I’m holding on to. I don’t make resolutions anymore – I never keep them anyway, but I do have a few things I hope to achieve this year. I’ll share them when and if I do πŸ˜‰ Wish me Luck!Β 

And so in keeping with all these good vibes and positive feelings, I thought this simple message from Mr. Monkton a great way to begin the Year with, not in the least because as I grow older, my ongoing endeavour is β€˜To Keep it Simple.’ I find that more often than not – it keeps me out of trouble πŸ˜‰

So here we go Folks without further ado…2014…LIVE IT πŸ˜€

  1. Ooooh….now you have me all agog, waiting for when/if you share the plans!
    As for keeping it simple, that’s more complex than it seems 😦

    1. Hahaha M…there’s a big IF there don’t forget!! IF I succeed πŸ˜‰ Given my track record…prepare yourself for a long wait πŸ˜›

      I agree that keeping it simple can get complicated, but I think given time it gets easier…or maybe it’s that with age, the complications don’t seem so complicated anymore? Hah! Howz that for a tongue-twister!

  2. I choose to believe we have endless potential πŸ™‚ Before you know it, you’ll be all settled in in Bangalore, and begin itching for a new town! And maybe you’ll get Dave’s five quid πŸ˜‰

    1. LOL Heather πŸ˜€ I need it too πŸ˜‰

      And you’re so right about the wanting to move…I’m just too restless to put down roots. Worries me sometimes – just sometimes. Other times a nomadic existence is just fine – the adventure of it more than making up for the stress involved!
