I was till date struggling to find the words and a picture that would sketch what I look forward to this year and what I would like to send as wishes to all my wonderful readers here. Words started flowing as I listened to the poetry that has inspired me since childhood. You can read my New Year post on it here.
Many of us regret what we could not do the entire year, but I was surprisingly happy when I did a little exercise as I sat on my work desk, on New Year’s eve, sipping some hot lemon ginger tea. I took out a little piece of paper from my bag and decided to list ONLY the GOOD things about 2013. Things, people, moments that made me happier, made me a better professional and a better person. I was delighted to see that despite of few downs there were plenty of ups in my life. There were so many things I should cherish. This inspired me to do more this year. To be much better this year. To appreciate the new, the diversity that exists out there.
I clicked the above picture during one of my jungle safari at Sasan Gir, Gujarat. I did a post on this picture last year. This picture is of a young woman from the tribe that lives amidst the forest. The picture speaks a thousand words about her daily life. The miles she walks, the family she takes care of and the responsibilities she bears on her head and shoulders. It goes perfect with my New Year’s message:
I hope this New Year, you find the courage to beat the normal and take the risk of the unknown. Hope you find quality time, to spend with your loved ones. Hope you find peace to introspect and appreciate your achievements. Hope you enjoy your existence.
Happy New Year!
