A Christmas Wish List

Ho ho ho folks! It’s Christmas time. The idea of Christmas either came from watching Christmassy movies or reading multiple Enid Blyton movies.

However, my introduction to the Indian Christmas came after being married into a Catholic family. The best part about marrying into a different culture? More occasions to celebrate.

So now Christmas is all about decorating the house, setting up the tree, setting up the crib, meeting the family and baking a boozy cake.

While the adults play Santa to the kids, I thought I wouldn’t be amiss to mention some things on my wish list since most of these are also things that money can’t buy.

  1. Wake me up at 6 am every morning: This year, there was a point in time when I was ready to start my day by 6:15 am. Those days have usually been very productive unlike even if I wake up an hour later. In the coming year, I wish I am able to wake up by 6 every morning to breeze through the day.
  2. Keep me away from distractions: I have a long list of things I want to do but usually end up getting distracted from doing those thanks to the plethora of those – Netflix, Amazon Prime or simply lazing around.
  3. Make me more patient: Any big change takes time. I wish there was a way to keep that in mind at all times.
  4. Keep me away from sugar: I have now been going to the gym regularly for over and year and a half. However, any progress I could expect to have made has been thwarted by the inability to keep away from sugar, especially when accompanied by chocolate.
  5. Put me ahead of technology: The experience of blogging has been a steep learning curve for me. There have been times when I have taken 2 steps back before I could move a step forward in the right direction. I wish I could get to the right path with minimum number of such mis-steps.
