New Year Resolutions - Week 29 Achievements & Failures in 2023 #TheLifesWay

Hi Guys,

It's my birthday week and I celebrated my 43rd birthday with some of the family and friends. I totally love cutting the cake and eating some great food outside and at home. I have always told that my life has always been the Life of Pi as I was born on 22-7 which is a Pi=3.14 and goes till infinite never fully divisible. This means that my life is full of struggles and I love challenges that are thrown at me and I will overcome them every time with my strong will and the blessings of Lord Shiva!
New Year Resolutions - Week 29 Achievements & Failures in 2023 #TheLifesWay
1. Entertainment - I started the week by completing the Kohrra web series on the Netflix streaming platform. It's a nice one-time watch and loved the acting of Barun Sobti and Suvinder Vicky. This web series is really an eye-opener in terms of various things I missed seeing when I used to live in Punjab, India. 

I then watched The Trial: Pyaar Kaanoon Dhokha Season 1 starring Kajol and Alyy Khan. This one is the Hindi version of The Good Wife. I have not watched the original so it was okay to watch the same but some of the things are just style though they try to show the courtroom drama but there are better series for the same. This one is fast-paced and things move very quickly without any context whatsoever and then there is a monologue from the main character in a single-liner. I didn't really like the series despite Kajol working in the same. 
2. Thank You - I started from 5000 onwards to reach 8000 and again the counter got reset to zero. Then again I took it to 5000 but again it got reset. The third time it also went 5000 but got reset once again. So in total, I did around 13000 Thank You. This is one of the exercises I kept doing and going back to in my life. 
3. YouTube - I reached 2222 subscribers on my 43rd birthday on 22nd July. I am really grateful to everyone for giving your precious time to watch my videos. Whatever small I am getting from your views is my only blessing in terms of income from running all these platforms. I completed 1 year of being monetized on YouTube as I got it last year on 12-Jul-22. I had a goal to achieve the payments of USD 100 by my birthday and I got it but it only gets paid next month. 
4. Happy Birthday - I completed another year on Planet Earth and was very happy to complete 43 years and was really happy somehow. I have lived for the last 15706 days which is the number of days I have lived on this Earth. This is something I learned from the Momentum She Owns Her Success session where the Group CEO mentioned it. I am not so sure what will be the long-term impact of the same but let's try it out. My initial thought was that it was going to add stress thinking that I had not achieved anything in the long 16000 days of my living on planet earth. 
5. Shopping - I bought some of the clothes on my birthday from my favourite brand Polo & Levis and introduced Pringle also into the arsenal of brands I have. There was a sale going on in Sandton City & Woodmeads and I made use of the same. Shopping is always fun as whenever you spend money on stuff you feel good. I also felt like broken dreams when I tried some of the fountain pens from MontBlanc and other brands like Pilot USA which cost more than ZAR 5000+. I felt really lightweight and cheap though the quality may be top-class but my itch to get one really dropped to zero towards buying them. 
It's been a long long time I have taken to finish various videos and blog posts. Sometimes I don't get the strength to work the extra mile to finish these posts. Today I have found some so I will do whatever is possible. Do you also feel a loss of energy in your daily tasks sometimes? What do you do to overcome this feeling? 

Aum Namah Shivay!

Till next time...Aashish
Thanks! Cheers!!!
