I will never understand how I navigated through the 21st year of my life! Spoiler alert I did pretty well. Be it work, passion, relationships, etc., I have seen myself completely change my mindset as I came across many things I never knew existed. It was a year of a lot of failures and a lot of learning! Looking back to the 21-year-old Amey I'll say he went through the right experiences to evolve into a better person.
But there is still a long way to go! Here's why!
It's my birthday ritual to reflect on the past year and the years preceding it and understand from a broader perspective where I need to pay more attention. The more experiences I get, the newer things I come across about the world and... about me.
This Birthday is an important one because this is the year I transition from being a student to starting my career. People my age would get what I mean. It's a big change though sometimes doesn't feel much. I am grateful that once I transition I am getting to work on things that I love. To make sure I work on the craft I am passionate about, took a lot of years of proving myself and my passion to my parents and my relatives.
I am a little nervous going forward but mostly excited to see how it will turn out! In the whole reflection process, I came across a few things I need to focus on in the next part of my life. I am documenting them here for the 23-year-old Amey to look back on.
Giving more time to people in my life
Cutting down excessive information intake
Learning from each and every opportunity and experience
Not being bothered by what other people think about me
(All the points mentioned above will be talked about in detail in future blogs)
I am really happy that there is still so much I don't know about myself. Every year I come across a side of me that I didn't know existed. I am excited about what I am going to explore about myself and the world around me in this new phase of my life. I know it's going to be more challenging than what I have been through but somehow I feel it's all going to be worth it.
I am doing this documentation so that I don't box myself in a specific mindset. I know there is a lot that I haven't come across. I need to be open to evolving coz the best is yet to come!
Been a long time since I wrote. Feels good!
