Finding Unusual Ways to Celebrate the Birthday


Last month I had completed one more year of existence. As years pass by, I become more rigid against the idea of celebrating my birthday. I have lived my life, and there is nothing much to celebrate. Rather, the celebration should be in the everyday life, not limited to a single day. I am getting philosophical. But this year I had completed two of my unfinished goals. Consistency and determination helped me do that. The first of these unfinished plans was about completing the 100 km ride to Gurgaon-Faridabad Road and the other was about finishing my first brevet โ€“ the 200km endurance ride which I tried in 2017 and couldnโ€™t complete. I am thankful for having the ability and opportunity to complete these little goals in a remarkable way. I am dedicating this post to those seemingly little achievements.

The Gurgaon-Faridabad Road ride



Completing the longest ride


I am blessed with a new cycling partner who is also a neighbor, who helps me push the limits further. Thatโ€™s a different story I need to seek his permission to write about him. Thank you all for encouraging and supporting me.

Are you in the habit of reminding yourself on completing unfinished business? Please share your thoughts.
