It’s Been A While: Miscellaneous Thoughts

I didn’t have a better name for a post other than that.  I’m sitting in my living room, watching Oprah, being inspired, as I rearrange my living room.  I am unpacking from an amazing trip to Bali, second Thanksgiving spent with my little munchkin nephews and cousins in a gorgeous exotic location.  I got to talk to my best friend this morning, and my boyfriend and I got to have breakfast and talk about life.  On the way to and from Bali, I got spoiled in Singapore by my aunt and uncle, and I felt like a princess.  I took a shower this morning, but the hot water heater still hasn’t been fixed.  I can’t really complain because I still haven’t paid rent.  I’m hoping to fix that this week. I just bought The Purple Cow by Seth Godin and I’m excited to read it.  In a week and a half, I’m going to go see my grandpa and his partner in France, and finally, I get to spend a month and a half in Los Angeles with my parents, and a week visiting more cousins in Houston, rounding off in San Francisco, and coming back to Bangalore at the end of January.

I think all I’m really feeling at this point is grateful. I’m grateful for a lot of things.  But I think right now, at this moment, typing away on my sofa watching Oprah, I am most grateful for my newfound (or maybe it was lost and recently found) strength to trust my gut.  Even though it may not make logical sense to most people.  I’m grateful that I think I’ve found my purpose.  After a lot of years of searching, I think I know what I’m supposed to be doing.  At least right now, for today, for the next few years, I know what I’m supposed to be doing.  So I’m going to go ahead and do it. I just need to know the next right move.  And I’m making it.

A Few New Ideas I’m Trying To Live By:

  • You can’t give what you don’t have- take care of yourself first before you take care of everyone & everything else
  • You are who you surround yourself by
  • You are also what you believe & tell yourself
  • Align your personality with your strengths & purpose and that’s when great things happen
  • Truth is what resonates with your soul
  • Life is just data points which we string together as a story
  • Relax, it’s going to be ok
