The year 2016 I declared as the year of exploring – I chose this word because I truly wanted to open myself to newer experiences and learning; I did succeed to some extent.
I travelled to new destination with my friend and created beautiful memories with my daughter
I together with David decided to renovate my house and brought in lot of changes to make it a comfortable place, de cluttered and kept minimal things which are basic and cleared the rest, creating spaces which can be maintained neat.
I am also glad my daughter Dorothy is completing her 10th Standard this academic year and she has been doing well; taking responsibility for her studies and coping well with a lot of adjustments specially when David had gone for the laser treatment; and I had to deal with my own health issues, she has been extremely accommodative and helped both of us; she has been a blessing in our lives.
I let go of all the painful experiences that generated anger, resentment, doubt and replaced it with love, peace and harmony. I took a deliberate decision to say good bye to all forms of toxic that hindered me and our family from being loving, trustworthy and united. I am glad to create a new set of loving relationships around me that is genuine, authentic filling me with positive energy and peaceful disposition.
Grateful!! New Year
that has dawned, welcome 2017!!!
I have not made any resolutions; by default, health will remain a priority in the family- integrating physical exercise, praying, practising gratitude, affirmations, mindfulness and a few Yogasana’s and choosing healthy food will be part of process of staying healthy.
I did not succeed in reading books, though I began well read a couple of books in the first quarter of the year, but was not consistent, hopefully this year I will pick up some books for myself for reading…
Some plans to pursue academically; continuing education to keep my updated, understanding the current psychological problems of young people in the university, a desire to be a lifelong learner and perpetual student in the hope of being useful to family and society at large.
I do have some travel plans which is subject to my daughter and husband’s leave and holidays; hopefully a few places with friends which is still in the planning stage.
This year hope to share whatever resources within my limits with the less fortunate, children and yes women – who have become my priority.
I expect a lot more to happen as this year unfolds, being open to learning new skills, helping my daughter and husband to also evolve goals that would bring meaning and happiness together as a family.
Life is unpredictable and we never know what holds for us in the future – but one thing is certain that having travelled this far, I am open for surprises, and will enjoy the moments and will never cease to smile and be happy despite any change.
Happy New Year 2017!!
Wishing you and your family peace, health and harmony all through the year …
