37

Seven days ago I turned thirty-seven.

I took the day off in lieu for working the previous Saturday. My wife took off from her work too.

My wife and son surprised me with a couple of gifts, one of which is my favourite organic dark chocolate from a local co-op. Given the current world events, I did not feel too excited to venture anywhere outside our lovely neighbourhood.

I spent the rest of the day with my wife and son, chatting together, playing video games, and eating out at our favourite places. I also spoke to my parents, brother, sister and an old friend, all from afar overseas.

I had a small and simple celebration.

I feel fortunate and privileged for everything in my life and being able to live how I envisioned. I have several ambitions to pursue, and that is probably a life long endeavour. But at this point in life, I don’t wish my life to be any different. For that, I am very grateful.

35

I turned 35 today.

I am happy, content and grateful for everything I have in my life.

I have some habits to continue, ambitions to pursue, and dreams to realize. But right now, at this point in my life, I don’t wish my life be any different. I have enough. And what a great feeling that is!

I turned 33 two days ago. I am satisfied with my life so far and am grateful for everything I have.

The weather Gods in India are cooperating with us nicely. The heat waves have cooled down just in time for our visit.

Between moving iPhones and timezones, I lost my 610 day long Elevate streak. That’s OK.

My brother taught me how to drive a manual car. I drove around a bit on the Indian roads; a skill I thought I could never learn. It took two hours to learn how to shift gears without stopping the engine. I drove four days with my brother in the front seat until I felt confident to drive by myself. So I feel good to learn something new and scary.
