CLOSURE!

Okok...don't get too excited looking at the title...this isn't going to be a blog about the dramatic closure to a tragic failed relationship or any such thing! :)

Recently at work, I was told by my lead that I would be contributing 50% of my time to another group....I was okay with that and figured it's probably because I had been complaining that I had all this bandwidth to spare but not enough work to do (yeah...I'm weird like that...)...turns out they are "sharing" me with another group to take advantage of a certain skill I apparently have....which is the ability to "take issues to CLOSURE".....

I thought about it and realized that this is someting that I do generally always try to do even in my personal life...be it relationships...a home improvement project...a fitness goal...a trip to the grocery store...etc etc....I really hate leaving things unfinished....goals not met...loose strings untied....if I decide to do something...I am usually on it as soon as I can...before I get the chance to change my mind...and I tend to do what it takes to make sure that I complete it...be it a 5 minute trip to fill gas...or a 6-month goal to complete my 1st marathon....

I kind of used to have a "Monica-ish" go-getter attitude about this for many years....and would be quite anxious about the outcomes of my actions/projects etc....but have slowed down more in recent times and learnt how to "enjoy the journey"a little more....which is where all the fun....and learning is....right?

But I guess your innate personality does still creep up sometimes though....be it at work or otherwise....in my case....I guess it has creeped up for the good...

Just some random thoughts while I wait to go home......

Going to H-Town this weekend to celebrate turning a quarter-century with the family....this is one era in my life I wish I din't have to "close" so soon!! haha.... :)

Actually rather than a dramatic failed relationship, I thought you finally found someone (I remember you mentioning about Shaadi.com in one of your previous posts).
