~~~Let The Good Times Roll~~~

My birthday is just round the corner..
and well I am not on the right side of the 20's anymore.. so every birthday brings with it a lot of thought, maturity and realization..
Realization of the fact that it is one year less to live.. Call me Cynical..
Being cynical at times helps put things in perspective.

Life is short... I have to make the most of what I have ... 
I have started giving a serious thought to what I want to achieve in this year..
You must be wondering about my ambitious awakening... All our lives we just procrastinate things.. We romanticize all sorts of ideas like travelling around the world, opening a business, Achieving that perfect figure, learning Guitar etc etc... We never get around to actually work towards it! I don't want to have such regrets in life.EVER!
People go away, the meaning of relationships/friendships changes faster than the speed of light.
They don't always stand by you... but these things will be with me forever.

I already have a long list that I have to achieve before my next birthday (Sounds like a resolutions list.. isn't it ?).. It is just my way of ensuring that I live my life and end up with no regrets 30 years from now.. I want to grow old happily and in Style..!
There are in all 25 action items in my birthday list.. 3/25 are just the add on's.
Once I am done with an action item from my birthday/bucket list I will show off/brag about it here on my blog :)...

For now I have achieved the first target list.. (Action Item# 1 - Strike Off)
Finishing a 10k run under 70 minutes in January..
Hell yeah, I did finish it yesterday and It took me exactly 66.43 minutes to finish 10k.. But what the hell I have just started after a sabbatical of two months.. Okay, it might not be a very good timing professionally.. but I am proud of it!

I have all sorts of action items in this list... and I will score 25/25..!!
(The concept might look stupid to you but right now, it makes all the bloody sense to me right now..)
So here is to the insignificant, significant, small, big achievements ..

Ciao..
P.S: The title of the blog post is a song by the band "The Cars" . It is a perfect Rock and Roll song..
The song is self explanatory ..It is about enjoying the good times.. looking forward to the good times, embracing the good times.. and Let the good times roll..
I liked the below part.
Let the stories be told
Let them say what they want
Let the photos be old
Let them show what they want

There will always be lies, stupid stories about you... Who cares about what others think.. (esp if they believe in these stories, gossips...)
