On 36 Trips Around the Sun

Me, being awesome by sucking in my stomach :P
This year, I realized…

  • Memento Mori!
    I’m not superhuman. I’m lucky, nay blessed to be alive.
  • Some people change… some don’t. I have to learn to live with that.
  • Being debt free is an awesomely freeing feeling.
  • Meditation and prayer help.
  • I was a fool to have given up on reading and music.
  • Bird on a Wire” is the soundtrack to my life.
  • That whenever I’m down, all I need to get rid of sad, depressive thoughts is to look up.
    That’s it. It always works.
    Crane your neck and look up. Try it :)
  • I have very few friends. But they’re awesome.
  • I am luckier than most when it comes to my work & career.
    Vivek & Vinay, I cannot thank you guys enough. You guys both have been so influential and so supportive in my life, I cannot express my gratitude enough. You guys are my other family. I love you for all you do.
  • I spent my childhood being scared of my parents; my teens, resenting them; and my twenties in rebellion and thinking that they were not so smart.
    Turns out, they were the best thing to have happened to me.
    I know that now.
    And I will spend the rest of my life in gratitude and love as far as they go.
    And finally…
  • I should have married Abbygail, twelve years ago.Yes, I was wrong Abby, and I hope this public admission lays our one long standing argument to rest :)
    The past three years with you, have been bliss and to quote The Platters… “Only you, can make this world seem right!”

Thank you, Lord!
I could not ask for more.
