LAST year's NEW YEAR Resolutions AT LAST fulfilled

After one year, Almighty has bestowed his kindness upon me. Your prayers worked wonders :)
After writing my last post on March 6th, 2012 I felt the need to work towards the New Year Goals that I set for myself. Things got deranged and the effect came on my job. But everything with God's help got sorted out and in a strangely amusing way!! Read on.

I wanted a disease free year but unfortunately in later March I got my pelvic lymph nodes swollen like marbles which were accompanied by high fever at night and severe coughing. My state became so severe that I felt difficulty in walking. When the doc advised me for a Tuberculosis test I felt wrecked. My throat was so sore that even when I tried to talk, people listening to me could feel that something really bad is going on. My Mantoux Test (skin test for TB) came positive. I was absolutely wrecked. Then God intervened..... My later tests like  blood test, sputum test and chest x-ray showed no signs of any severity. Everything was normal. So the doc opined that the Skin test for TB was positive due to previous BCG vaccination. They treated the swollen nodes with medications and by April end I was Hale and Hearty. My 1st resolution threw my off track but I determined to not get sick for another whole year counting from March 2012 to March 2013.

Though I was quite good yet, medications and recovery caused stress and somewhere it got reflected on my job. I wasn't able to achieve the told targets of an editor and was continuously loosing in some invisible career race.

Thus in July, I did double job to maintain my sanity. I worked part time in a law firm and side by side freelanced for my old law publishing house. I worked like this because the work load of being an attorney was far less from being a law editor where we have daily tasks lined up on desk ... daily!!!  When I was able to gather up some Money. God fulfilled my 2nd New year Resolution :
Got a better phone.. a Windows smart phone. YAY :)

My 2nd resolution was fulfilled again, when I started enjoying thick paychecks.
My 3rd resolution was fulfilled by papa when we got a good flat screen TV (t'was a secret as how we got it.. but we are just enjoying it.)

My vacations-resolution has not yet fulfilled so, I am looking forward to this year. But I went flab free, pimple free and actually disease free all year long!! I tried to sleep early and work out, all that helped in bringing the refreshed side of my creativity and then I looked for new opportunities.

This year... so far as I believe.. God bestowed his kindness. He gave me what I needed most.. Since being an attorney is boring I needed a good opportunity where I could put my writing skills to work. "You ask from God .. you Get from God"

I dropped my double jobs this year when I got a nice but strange opportunity to co-author a CLAT cracking book (Common Law Admission Test - its similar to LSAT, Law School Admission Test). This week the book will be available in book stores. So here I say.. Thanks to God for being with me. Everything happens when almighty desires but we must never loose our faith!

It feels great :) Looking forward to share more good posts with all of my loving buddies, your prayers for me, got answered.
But.. more needed please :D

Ciao

  1. God is sooo good. Life isn't always what we want but it's always what we need when we follow our Father.

    I bet co-authoring the book was a great experience.
