New year is a time to start over for many. No matter how good or bad your past year has been, we need to take time to reflect back on the whole year. The good we have done, the good that happened to us, what we learned, our mistakes, highlights and lowlights. Despite the fact I have triskaidekaphobia (# 13) my 2013 started off with a blast. I was on a toxic ER duty under surgery department at DMC. Sure the duty was hell with unlimited drunk patients who got injured through accidents (which they made) and bar fights (using glass bottles). End of the day, I loved my work so I didn’t feel bad about not being able to celebrate with my friends. I had many highlights this year and almost zero lowlights (I guess cause I’m being optimistic). My graduation, my ventures, traveling, free lance writing, coming back to india & settling in hyderabad, parties, family get-togethers, occasions, rekindling with my old friends, making new friends, new learnings, new habits and others (Part of my year was monotonous though but it’s a balance). So I’m grateful. I never keep new year resolutions, I’m spontaneous and I live in the present. So whatever my 2014 is gonna be, bring it on. I’m positive its going to be a great year again or I will make it happen. 🙂
“And as you all can see, the ball has stopped half way to its perch. It’s suspended there to remind us before we pop the champagne and celebrate the new year, to stop, and reflect on the year that has gone by. To remember both our triumphs and our missteps, our promises made and broken, the times we opened ourselves up to great adventures… or closed ourselves down for fear of getting hurt, because that’s what new year’s all about. Getting another chance, a chance to forgive. To do better, to do more, to give more, to love more, and to stop worrying about what if… and start embracing what will be. So when that ball drops at midnight, and it will drop, let’s remember to be nice to each other, kind to each other, and not just tonight but all year long.” – New years eve film
Count your blessings! Happy new year everyone. Have a blast. God bless!
