End of 2014 – My last update

Hello friends, this is going to be my last blog post of 2014.

gby2014journey2015

I was not going to write today, but, as I sit here drinking my Chai, I cannot help but be reflective. I’m also inspired by other bloggers on WordPress that I follow for their unique perspective. Thanks to the bloggers for inspiring me to continue on this journey into the blogging sphere..

It seemed like only yesterday that it was the start of 2014 which can best be categorized as the “never ending winter‘.  For us in Central New Jersey, the winter did not end till mid April when we finally saw our lawns after the brutal cold and multiple snow storms. I got the best view of this from my back window where I saw the horses in my neighbor’s yard.. That image was surreal. Two horses playing in the snow. For me that was a zen-like moment during a year of turmoil.

Even though the year flew by in blink of an eye, for me, it could not have ended any sooner.  My life took a left turn as opposed to the normal right turns I usually take (which I call my status quo). I’m almost certain that 2015 will be a more promising year for me.

Over the past two years, as Dad’s Taxi, I’ve dealt with many changes in my life. I’ve dealt with dysfunction (much of which I manage to create), and the twists and turns of the road as a maneuver my taxi of life. Most of the events in 2014 have tested my resolve and my ability to maintain some sort of equilibrium on my thoughts. At times, I’ve succeeded, other times, I could have done better.

  • I lost my father to in January 2013. He  was in assisted living after Super Storm Sandy. He had Dementia. May his soul continue to rest in peace.
  • I had multiple residences in 2014 because of personal issues at home.. You can figure that one out for yourself.. No need for me to go into it here. “It is what it is” became my mantra and it helped me to transition to “next issue, move on“.
  • I finally have found a new beginning and I face 2015 with enthusiasm for “new beginnings”.

As I sit here looking out of my window and await the new year, I am truly ready to welcome in to my life 2015 which is about 24 hours from now.

In 2015, I will work on myself more and become who I want to be. As I transition from being Dad’s Taxi, to  “My Taxi”, I can consider myself to be  a “work in progress“, and what the end-game is “to be determined“.

The end of 2014 has presented me with opportunities for change which I have grabbed with gusto, at the same time, maintaining my unique perspective on life. I’ll continue to post with a stream of consciousness.. No matter how annoying that can get. That’s what make me unique I guess.

For 2015,  I have created a personal bucket list of goals (Topping the list is to got Wimbledon).

In the blogs coming, everyone will eventually find out what additional goals I’ve set for myself. For now, my journey to the future is rife with hope and self development.  So keep checking back to see it all unfold in my own unique way of expression. Trust me, it’ll always be amusing and at times entertaining.

Let me close this final post of 2014, by saying I wish all my friends, family and followers:  A safe, happy, healthy, positive, optimistic and great year ahead, and may it be everything you wish for it to be. You just need to work hard at it and never give up.

One of my goals for 2015 is to get more views on Dad’s Taxi and engage you my reader/follower. I haven’t really been successful with that, but hey let’s see how 2015 goes.. . Of course for the spammers that love to leave their comments, you will continue to be banned.

I am excited for another year filled with blogging as Dad’s Taxi.

Who knows how 2015 will play out, but I plan on having some fun! What are your plans for 2015?

Wish each one of you the best for 2015.. Now I need some more Chai

2014 Au Revoir and Good Riddance

As 2014 comes to closure, Dad’s Taxi is in a reflective mode.

For Dad, 2014 was a time for change. For the people that know me,  the chaos in my life in 2014 that  I overcame has made me a stronger person. I guess “what doesn’t kill you, will make you stronger”.   Much of the chaos is so personal/private that I cannot write about them here.. Perhaps in a few more months, I can let the world know what has been going on for the past 24 months of Dad’s Taxi.

2015 has an air of glimmer of light that I hope turns into reality

How was your 2014????
