Last year at this time i had thought 2015, would be the most eventful year of my life, a lot of things would change and blah blah.
But life has not picked up much pace from it was a year ago. Now i am hoping that at least next year will be more eventful. Nevertheless it was definitely a year of great learning, tearful farewells, and of course small spells of happiness. May be they were big showers, but the skeptical me is hardly happy. 😀
For few of my friends, life is still the same, they are still going to Goa to celebrate new years like always :). But even without introspection, i can tell you that things have changed for me.There was a time when 31st night was a huge thing to celebrate, but as years passed, i grew old , it has now become a night which is dreaded, since i know now more friends are going to be married, more competition will be born, and i have no brownie points to add to my resume.
In spite of all these fears, i will still cherish, memories of a good friend’s marriage, the mistakes that i made and learnt from, and will hope that next year is an amazing journey of happiness, love and imperfections.
My mantra for the coming year, is Listen, Sustain and Dream.
I have missed on learning from many people in my life, because the conversations with me were often monologues, i never cared or understood what the other person would want to say. Listening is what i really want to work on, even if i disagree with the other person or i feel they are rumbling nonsense. When we listen, we understand, empathize and respect the other person’s thoughts.
I am someone who gives up very easily, i do not even give it a second thought when i see challenges, because i feel i’m too weak mentally to sustain. But good things do not come easy, no one has an overnight success.I will work harder, without results, i will sustain because even i do not succeed i will learn.
Quoting Messi “I start early and I stay late, day after day, year after year, it took me 17 years and 114 days to become an overnight success.”
And lastly, do not stop dreaming. It is the most powerful weapon human being possesses. I dream everyday about a million things i want to do. They give me a hope that things one day if not perfect will be beautiful.
On this note, i wish all of you reading this a very happy and joyous new year. May this year be a great one for all of us 🙂
