Goals for the Month - July 2017 - Month end Review

One day is pending to end July but I will be busy later so posting my month end review. You can find my July month goals here.

  • Record  -- Not done. Though I am singing various songs myself... not recorded. 0% Failed.

  • Salon and Spa --Seriously a very little of this budget is spent. I didn't had mood to do anything you know. Well, not found anything to finance this yet. 30% Failed.

  • Weekends -- Monsoon picnic with family done on a weekend this month. And since it was July Income Tax Return month, I was really busy meeting with clients and doing stuffs on weekends. So, weekends well spent. 80% Okay. 

  • Lunch/ Dinner Date : 6 Lunch/Dinner dates - 150% done. My son too is used to hoteling now. When I do take him for long rides in the evening, he will just see some restaurant and will ask for dinner and then we actually go there... Mother - Son duo...eating happily ....in the pajamas...Waiters are used to see this scene now... :) Anyway, then I did take myself to a very expensive star hotel that I have never been into and got myself good coffee and specially made customized snacks for myself... All alone... and happy... It was celebration that I did for farewell of that long time customer whom I referred in the goals that is leaving. So the last full n final payment was good amount so I just took a chance to celebrate a bit. I badly needed this coffee break in these days. 
  • Read and Review -- 2 book reviews... (approved). -- No -- 0% Failed.

  • Writing: 0% Failed completely.
  • Shopping : No shopping, not even anklet... I don't need anklet anymore and I already have which I need so no shopping. Though I am creating a list of shopping which I will be doing after "I get something good reason in life for shopping". 100% Done
  • Cooking :  Okay... it was okay... more on this section in next post may be...60% Okay..


  • Health :
  • Diet --  So healthy diet... 2 salads, one fruit, one glass milk daily minimum... milk obviously not for all days* and adjust dinner time... I am feeling hungry late in the night... -- This was seriously impacted. I have started with hair fall and then these pimples on my face... Something big has hit my diet or may be its just stress that I don't have ;) -- 0% Failed.

  • Drinking 5 liters of Water daily -- This also went for a toss... I am not even drinking 2 liters these days.. 0% Failed.

  • Drinking Milk Daily -- 40%. Okay
    • Walking 30 minutes --  Ahha... I got a very good reason for this and I am glad about it. So, this is going good. 80% Done.
      •  
    • Plank -- 20 days minimum. - 40%. Alright.


    • Work -- Okay... so this was the client that I was talking about. That was good business. I did bid farewell in very good manner to the customer. Anyway, I haven't found anything to replace this income yet. Search is on. 10%

    • PDUs-- Just see this image... Do I still need to say anything....
    • Though not planned, I happened to earn them this month as well and see this is the result... I have actually earned all the PDUs I need to renew my PMP credentials which is due in 2.5 years.... Dear God, please make other things as well so effortless for me... This was leisure activity... 1000%

    • Tax planning -- Doing and going good. 90%.
    • Chanting 108 mantras for 20 days -- Done -- 100% But as written earlier, not focused. 
    • Car Driving -- 0%. Failed. I didn't even drive to Monsoon picnic this month. Oh that was different experience altogether.

    • Hobby : 0% Failed.

    Its already 4.30 am in the clock and I haven't slept yet. Not writing anything... just be happy until my next post. 

    Pahchaan - The Identity

    Oh yes by the way, music has also left me alone these days...  My music mobile has became dead without any reason and the new mobile's headsets are not working for some reason... Yes... have to send it to customer care center.. but that's not priority at this moment so may be later... But offcourse, I am not leaving music alone... My heart keeps singing...no matter what....

    Itne Chehron me Apne Chehre ki Pehchaan...
    Bade Bade Naamon me Apna bhi Naamonishaan...




    Laagli Vaat... Laagli Vaat...

    Life Update : Life has some unexpected twists and turns and am figuring the best way out of it. 
    I went to a place and after sometime was surprised to see one of my besties there. I had talked to her on phone previous night and she had suggested me to visit the place. It was holy place and we were not allowed to talk. But I realized she had planned all this setup to talk to me in person. When there is will, there is way. We stole few minutes from the world to have a quick chat. After some of my updates she was, "Vow Yaar... Teri to har taraf se Vaat lag gai hai...!!! " (Rough translation : your whole life has become miserable) . I was just SO motivated with these words... And then we sang the song... "Laagli Vaat... Laagli Vaat....". I am so lucky to have such friends... who know how to handle me... Seriously... It will be so much fun to get life back on the boring track now...  

    Recently, I met a guy… Venu… (I know Maharashtrian reaction on this. I myself have a friend Venu who is girl… But anyway, he is from Hyderabad and hence I got to know that Venu is name of boy too).  He said, "You know what, you should be doing 'this'...". (And I was like… WHAT? Oh.My.God. This is exactly what my heart wants me to do… How come he knows this…He don’t even know me… We were talking just for few minutes…. Is he like too cute and understanding or am I communicating too frankly with him? I don't know...) Whatever… so I was happy to listen from a stranger about what I should do, exactly the way I wish.. It felt like a sign.. God is saying to pursue my wish…my dream... Yes Dear God… definitely… but what about now….this moment.... What if Plan A is taking too long to work… I know…it won’t but just consider worst case scenarios…. I am not considering Plan C and Plan D yet in the calculations… So I have to work on Plan B which I seriously don’t wish to do… but have to…

    Thank You God... I know, it was You...

    I strongly believe this... Always... there is someone... always... .. 


    Stay Connected…. With yourself….

    As you might have observed in my monthly goals, I do few religious activities daily. Last few weeks…though I was doing them regularly, I was not feeling that "special feeling" in me. I was feeling that something is missing... It was just like something I am doing without any feeling. I am looking at God's idol but we are not connected... There was no communication....  I was realizing this and it was hurting a lot. I was not connected to God... I was not connected to myself... and I don't know why..

    Okay, not everybody will get this "Connecting with God or connecting with your inner-self" point. So, this happens with relationships as well…. You are putting in more than yourself in relationship, in building it…nurturing it... you lose yourself in the whole process and if still there is no desired response… you loose interest… and then you just do things without heart…. Actually relationship dies after some time…We see so many couples around us like this... just dragging the dead relationship....
      It happens with work as well… You do your job but if you don’t love what you do...you are living just “fakt rakane divasache bharto” and “patya takto” types work-life. 
      It happens with our own self as well…If I don't love myself, if I am not with my own self...I am basically hating myself... If my brain and heart are not in sync, I am not trying to fulfill my dreams, I am hating myself... My experience is when you are not with yourself and you are not behaving like your own self.. you loose everything..... But once you connect to your own inner-self... you are unstoppable... you win everything....The process of connecting with ourselves do take time... but its long lasting.... fulfilling... enriching...

    You know what, when you are not connected with yourself, all you feel is sad, alone and you wait for someone, you need someone else to show you your worth... to motivate you may be... .. you see like your heart will sing the Total eclipse of the heart.... And I need you more than ever.... But when you get connected with yourself... you are the super power... you don't need anyone... you will sing to yourself.... I am there for you.... Mai Hu Naa...  Koi mushkil, koi pareshani aaye, Muzse kaho... Tumhein lage kuch theek nahin Halaat, Mujhse kaho.... Koi ho Tamanna ya ho Koi Aarzu,  Rehna kabhi na Bekaraar.... Mai Hu Naa....
     Seriously, trust me when you SHOUT these lines inside your helmet and the bike-rider  next to you looks you strangely, you just shrug it off and don't care... Man... you have connected.. well connected with yourself... and to h*** with this world... 

    Dear God... thanks for staying by me... even when I am not trusting... not connecting...  I know, we will connect soon...

    Thanks for Everything... God....

    Pahli Baar....Aankhari Baar....

    I know, I am posting this song again in this blog. Last time it was about my coworker who had fallen in love for a girl and would share those cute things with me.
    Today... its me posting this... :) Nooooo.... just now it came on radio... that's it... nothing else... :) I am not giving Priyanka Chopra's version... I am still in love with Suresh Wadkar's version... the silent one...



    Thode bheege bheege se thode num hai Hum...
    Kal se soye hue bhi to kam hai Hum....
    Dil ne kaise harkat ki hai....
    Pahliiii baaar....Mohabbbaat ki hai...
    Aankhari baaaaar Mohabbbaat ki hai....

    Remembered....

    Other day, rather night I was at work doing my job and already late for home.  One young handsome man entered. He was wearing loose t-shirt and shorts...somewhat 'vacation mood' look. On seeing him, I suddenly felt 'deja vu'. I had seen the boy somewhere and I didn't remember where. I was stressing my brain so much, I forgot that I was actually in middle of a conversation with someone else. Oh God, the other person must have felt that I am checking out the young handsome cool dude. With embarrassing  awkwardness I continued my conversation. The person was talking to the boss and though they both were communicating in English, I recollected that the boy was Marathi. He left soon with boss.  I told my mother the incident and asked if she remember any of my friends or colleagues with such description. Till this point I had recollected that he had worked as actor. But I couldn't recollect him.

    Present:
    I was going through newspaper today when a photo on the first page of films section caught my attention and I just remembered. Eureka... Eureka.... It was image of a bald man, not so handsome... I went to my mother and asked, "if this person would have hair on his head, do you think you know him?" My mother saw photo and said, yes, He is "Saurabh Gokhale". Oh.My.God. I got him now... that night, he was Saurabh Gokhle in the shorts.... He is Marathi actor by profession.

    Happens all the time.... I have worked in so many fields... and with so many people that I keep on forgetting people... It's my mother who most of the time reminds me, "that boy is from your that diploma course..... Okay, that person we met.... you worked with that person in that library in that summer.... and so on.... " Thanks mother for reminding.... You know... my own life theory that I keep writing here....of "People come and go...Life moves on" actually had came from so many experiences...

    Anyway, so he has just maintained himself very well... he is not young boy... I mean off course not young as me... he is quite older than me... Similar incident had happened in my office once when someone came  to see the office space for rent and that time the person and I, we both had identified each other and we talked and all... Oh my bestie in office... I am so missing you now... Whom with I gossip about this now...

    Goals for the Month - July 2017

    Alright, its already 2 am in the clock but I am not sleepy at all. Cool songs are going on radio and it's perfect time to jot down the goals.

    I am in happy mood thanks to these cool songs and hence going to make happiness first priority on my monthly goals...

    • Record  -- This was done last month without any plan and it was good. So this time planning for it. This time that will be for myself... I love myself you know... I am dating myself.... I take myself out for lunch/dinner/tea/snacks/coffee and outing so... I deserve a song for myself this time.... :)

    • Leisure -- Stress will be allover this month... Well, it will trouble me only if I mind... Let's just laugh out the things....
    • Salon and Spa --Well, salon budget is going to blow this month I guess... At the time of writing this goals, I have already visited salon several times in this month. Today also I had a "look good for" visit. God, please take care of these expenses... Salon prices are going to be up because of GST. I need to find some new gig to finance salon expenses now.

    • Weekends -- One monsoon picnic is planned this month with family... I had already bought tickets of the resort... I plan to drive. If possible, one solo trip as well... which seems impossible this month given my weekends are busy with work. I was super busy today and 3 meetings lined up already for tomorrow.

    • Lunch/ Dinner Date : I will have minimum of 6 Lunch/dinner/snacks dates with myself. Seriously this is badly needed.
     
    • Read and Review -- This takes time process wise so now after bit experience I need to estimate this carefully. Now I know, it is going to take time anyhow so will plan accordingly. 2 book reviews... (approved).

    • Writing: I am again making writing as my priority. Its such a stress buster. I will be spending much time reading+writing. I want to write whatever I have in my drafts, bookmarks and mind since long. Let the posts be flooded to my technical blog. Minimum 5 posts to technical blog after today and a full length technical article. Six months review for annual goals as well... 

    • Shopping : No shopping for myself... only essential things for home and son will be bought this month. Wait... my anklet is pending... Okay fine... anklet shopping.

    • Cooking :  Kids friendly cooking. At the evening time, if I get call, my coworkers know... caller would be my son and will ask for some food item.... Mother... I love you so much... I love Jilebis too... I love gulab jamuns too...kaju katli... and what not... and obviously like any good mother I prefer only my cooked food for him... so I make jilebis, gulab jamuns etc for him. He has seen my chocolates mould and now keeps asking me to make chocolates... No baby... I am not gonna fall for this...you are not getting chocolates...


    • Health :
    • Diet -- I am having "feeling" that my healthy diet has derailed... and this might affect my hair...I don't want hair fall now... So healthy diet... 2 salads, one fruit, one glass milk daily minimum... milk obviously not for all days* and adjust dinner time... I am feeling hungry late in the night... (At the time of writing this also I am feeling too hungry now... what do I eat now...)

    • Drinking 5 liters of Water daily -- Continue with this.

    • Drinking Milk Daily -- Continue with this.
      • Walking 30 minutes --  Continue with this.
        •  
      • Plank -- 20 days minimum.


      • Work -- I have a client who is leaving this month forever. It was long association and good money too. It won't be there now. So, need to find something else to fill up that space. WORK  this on PRIORITY. Have few ideas... have to figure out and work accordingly to get success.


      • PDUs-- I am not planning for any of it actually this month. So, even couple of PDUs will be okay for this month. That I can actually get by attending chapter's meeting and business lunch/dinner whatever is planned for this month.

      • Tax planning -- ELSS, automatic payments, income tax return.

      • Chanting 108 mantras for 20 days -- This is going okay these days so I think I will be able to achieve this easily.

      • Car Driving -- Get servicing done and continue with practice. Drive to Monson trip.

      • Hobby : Create something cool

      At the time of writing these goals I am actually little (very little) bit worried but confident too. I am not fearing even for a second. I know, God is with me.. I know, we will do it. I think I am getting close to what I want.... how part of it... I was figuring out... I think clouds are clearing now... I am able to see the sunshine... Again, it's a risk... but that's how we enjoy our life, right? by risking everything... Let's see what happens... I know, whatever God does, its all for good in the end.

      Mala Ved Laagle Premache....

      Flashback:

      If you are my regular reader, you must have read that in my pregnancy, I used to have songs cravings... you see like... "I want to listen that song... NOW....and I MEAN NOWWWWW" and several times, I usually even didn't remember what "that" was...  I would just describe whatever I remember about the song... and then I would search it and off course listen it... This below song was my one of those "songs cravings" in pregnancy.

      As they say the cravings you get in the pregnancy are actually the desires of the baby... So I made a playlist of all these craving songs. Thing to note here is I was following all the GarbhaSanskar rules properly and very seriously (and yes, they resulted positively by blessing me an intelligent [rather over intelligent] baby... knock on the wood). One of it was listening to that GarbhaSanskar Mantras and music. It was mentioned to continue this when baby will be born and then baby identifies that music and stays calm etc etc. Alright, I got the point. So along with the GarbhaSanskar Mantras my baby was listening to right from Shakira, Jagjeet, Himesh and who not. So I made that playlist and when my son was born, I would use that playlist to make him calm and he would seriously sleep listening to those songs.
      One day one aunty came to see me and my newborn and after seeing this song was going on while I was rocking my baby to sleep, she was like "hey you should make him listen lullaby, not this kind of song...". "Oh seriously? He is my son and I know him more than you. We were communicating since the time nobody in this world has even seen him. I know what works for him... Okay? So thanks but no thanks..." Off course, I did not actually speak these words which were in my mind. I knew that aunty had visited to bless me and my newborn baby and I, like any other to-be mother was used to listen advice from *anybody* in the universe. Anyways, so song is very good and my son liked it from the time he was not even born. It's like "Pahla Nasha" love song... whenever you listen it, it will make you smile...I am going Crazy in Love...




      Well off course, I just like the song, music, lyrics... Video..umm.....Ah well... actually, I didn't like the movie as well... Rubbish...Your just kids... It's your age to do something productive, something good out of your life...and you are doing such stupid things... Obviously... love is being stupid... Love should be strength, not weakness... and in this age you don't understand that only love is not sufficient for the life. You should make your career first. And by the way, only love is not enough even in the lateral stages of the life.... Say for example your partner loves you but don't respect you... it doesn't last positively throughout the life... you lose your confidence and you had to actually spend your entire life to get your confidence..  just a min... am I talking on the similar note of Alia Bhatt in . Badrinath ki Dulhaniya...  Well, I didn't like that movie either... Nice girl but wrong boy...Comeon yaar... well that's my personal opinion about that movie...I know, Life is not movie but this point is perfectly valid in life. Trust me... I have seen this... it takes forever to get yourself back again...
       Oh God... long post... out of nothing... just a song... I think I should be sleeping now... Like my newborn baby, I will try to sleep to this song today... Good Night world...

      Bechainiyaa.... Betabiyaa....

      I am just feeling too restless and don't know why. The feeling is lasting since long time so I thought to just let it out so that I may feel better.





      I am not sleeping but I don't feel I am complete awake either. I am feeling giddiness.. May be I just need some sleep and all the thoughts are because of sleep deprivedness.
