Happens every year end, this. I sit and wonder, how in the world can one year go by so quickly! And every year is the same. A hearty mixture of laughter and joy and a dash of tears and sorrows. But isnt that the very essence of life? Balance. If not one, then no appreciation for the other.
So many wonderful things happened this year! Unexpected, expected.I learnt that if I wanted to be happy and be filled with joy, I only had to give the same. Wasnt easy, but possible. I learnt that even friendship needs all the ingredients of a relationship - unconditional love, forgiveness and turning a blind eye to faults, but most of all the ability to forget. Again, not easy, but not impossible.
This year taught me, that where there is a will (and lots of love!) there is a way. Even over the Atlantic Ocean! That the embrace of a beloved is worth more than anything else in the world. That a sunset watched with my hand in that of a loved one surpasses even the glory of that dusk! That love is what makes the ride, the journey, call it what you will, worthwhile.
After twenty four years of lousy eating habits, this year, I have finally attained a health conscious consciousness! I count calories in what I eat!! I get off two stops early and walk home! Of course I have the occasional pizza and chips and chocolate, but moderation has a whole new meaning in my list of big words now!
I thought it was impossible, but even this year, I discovered many things about myself. Some quite cool, some not. For me personally, the biggest victory of the year was to accept change. The only constant. And the one thing that we are genetically, emotionally, physically most resistant to. I learnt to align myself to Divine Will. And that makes all the difference.
I know next year will bring greater joys and similar trials. I also know that just like this year, I will face them all next year too!!
I wish you all a wonderful new year!! New year, new challenges, new joys!!
And more blogs!!
