171021 – Morning Pages

A Morning Pages from a Starbucks after a while. I think I got the mojo back just because I am here. Read on and find out!

8:39 AM. Starbucks. Somewhere in Gurgaon. 🙂

Just the thought that I am at a Starbucks makes me happy! The typing is faster and my mood is generally better. Yay! Having access to a public place to kickstart my mornings is THAT important to me. And since I know it now, I must do whatever it takes to create a routine, a life that ensures that I get my mornings to myself. #note2self

So I am in Gurgoan for the next few days. Let’s see how it is. So far, to be honest, I like it. I never imagined I would. To me, it was a concrete jungle without a soul. I was wrong. Even if I dont have any people around, I like it. For some reason. Probably, the novelty of a new city, the experience of new places and the wonder of a different culture (while we are in India, Gurgoan is distinct from Delhi, which is distinct from Mumbai) is alluring? Let’s see if this stays with me after a few days.

What could also be helping this cheery mood is that I am sleeping in hotels. Something that I love so much that I want to build a life where I literally live in a hotel. You know, a serviced apartment. The good part is that I am ready for it. In the sense, I dont have any material things (things like photos of loved ones, things that you gather from your travels across the world, memorabilia, books, white goods, and other such things) that I want to stock the place I live at with. Except for a toothbrush and toiletries. So that.

Also, since I am here (Delhi / Gurgoan) for an extended time, I am meeting all the friends, mentors, and others that I have not met in a while. And I am loving it. If I had my way, I would merely meet people, talk, and imagine what the world could be.

I must write about meeting Vijesh. Each time I meet him, he makes me think deeply about where I am in life and what I want from life. He always challenges me to think beyond what I am capable of. And he leaves me with questions that I continue to ponder upon long after I am done with meeting him. This time around as well he has asked me a few things that I am left thinking about. I need to find answers. Let’s see when I do that. Maybe around Diwali when there’s nothing else to do?

Guess this is it for the day. Today as well, I plan to meet some people and then sleep at a hotel. In case you are around Gurgaon, lemme know. Am here till Tuesday night for sure.

Here’s the journal.

  1. Emoticon: :). Probably because I am at a Starbucks and typing away to glory ;P
  2. Mindful Index (on a scale of 10): 0. Literally 0. I am still distracted. I need to find a solution to this.
  3. Things that I am grateful for
    1. The world I live in gives me the opportunities to find places like Starbucks that I can sit at and write.
    2. The life I have created allows me to live by myself when I feel the need to. And yet it allows me to find connections whne I need to.
    3. I have people like Vijesh that I can bank on, when I need counsel. Even when I dont need counsel, I can reach out and chat about life and all.
  4. Things that would make my today great
    1. Again, work. I need to finish all that is pending. Or else Monday would come crashing down on me. And I would hate that!
    2. If I could get some unexpected meetings, it would be a nice surprise and it would be great!
  5. A daily affirmation. I can be super productive when I want to be and I can do all that I am supposed to.
  6. Amazing things that happened yesterday? 
    1. Met Vijesh. This is the third time I am putting his name here 😀
    2. Got some work done. Again, work is such a large part of how I live my life.
  7. What could have made yesterday better?
    1. I think it was as close to a perfect day as any. Maybe I could’ve ended it with a dinner with someone from opposite gender?
    2. I would have liked to have better sleep than what I had yesterday.
    3. If I could eat better, nothing like it!
  8. Quote for the day
    “Want to get lucky? Take more shots.”. Thanks to Harshit for sharing this.
