Two things to share:
1. My friend told me he read a book that stated successful people tend to constantly think of how much they have left. I disagreed. While there is importance in that, the problem is how the book is defining success in the first place. Or rather, how success is defined in general. Sometimes it's too focused on the tangible. But if we are always looking forward, I don't think we are giving the past and present enough significance.
I met so many people this past weekend who told me their dream was to write a book. It made me think of all my blogger friends, who are spending their days pursuing things that others may leave to theory at the moment. Relish in that. It takes courage and action.
2. Another friend, one of my closest ones from college, married her true love. I've been to many wedding but this was the first good friend's one and it was surreal really, to see such an amazing person's dreams unfold right in front of me. The joy bled to everyone close to her and made the entire weekend a constant celebration, even when we weren't in a ceremony. (Indian weddings have a lot of events...I'm talking several days worth.)
By the end, we were exhausted in the best way possible.
