The Curious Case of the New Year!

Happy 2014 to everyone!

For many, it is a fresh beginning full of aspirations, hope and prayers for a better future. For others, it is just another day.

I did not want 2013 to end. Last year added so much meaning to my life that I wanted it to keep going. This new year 2014, is like a new neighbor. I try to peek in a little when their main door is open hoping to find a few positive signs, while battling all the nerve-wracking questions. What if the new neighbors are unfriendly? What if they have a dog that barks all the time? What if their kids listen to loud music?

Every new year awakens many what ifs in my life but this year I had an epiphany.

No matter how good or bad this new year treats my life, what matters at the end is how kindly I treat myself. When I fail, do I pat my back for trying ? Do I forgive myself when I do not meet my daily targets? Do I let it go when people hurt me? Do I make an effort to add magical moments to my life? Do I give space to myself to breathe, grow, learn and live?

So this year, I have decided to give my soul a warm cup of cocoa, tight cozy hugs, many reasons to laugh, many many pats on the back, a few more friends and many beautiful moments to cherish. What about you?

Happy Living!
