What a beautiful year! And believe me, I’m not being sarcastic.Not that everything turned out to be as I wanted, but even though everything was a vice-versa, I have a long list of ‘lessons learned’! And I’m proud of that!
Ask me a thing I haven’t done or experienced and I’d have nothing to say!2017 is a plethora of experiences I'll forever wear with pride around my neck!
I remember, the last post of 2016, I was wishing for a benevolent 2017, because I thought 2016 was worse!But no, it’s not the years that are bad, just our perspective maybe!
2017 started with a glimmering hope.I was hell excited for a change I so knew was coming to me.But as soon as I had a chance to embrace it, I had to think of making wiser decisions.I do not know or maybe I’ll never know if I was right or wrong then, but I’m sure I won’t ever regret it.As they say, let’s hope that another door always opens when one closes.I remember, after a harsh 2016, the morning I had the news of embracing a change, I had cried over the phone to my mom, saying ‘good things are finally coming!’.But careful considerations deemed it to be not so much good!
The second half of the year was full of personal experiences of which I’m so glad of.Although they were bittersweet but , because of the same reasons, I got so close to some people!A helluva of emotions gushing inside of you! Do you realize how it feels? It’s like you’re feeling the entire universe inside you.This was also the period wherein I had put my heart and soul into something I always wanted to achieve.But I wonder why things didn’t work out as I had wished them to be.I remember 2014 was one such year and I had penned down this then,”Sometimes, it’s not that your fist isn’t strong enough to get hold of something, it’s just that fate decides to loosen it”.A period, I have troubled my mom, best friends and flatmates the most! But how much I cherish them! To get out of this trauma, I had to travel.Kashmir is nothing short of an experience. I met some beautiful people and realized that how it sets your mind free!
The latter part of the year, now, taught me that how sometimes it is okay to let go of your ego and make things and situations normal.On a scale of 0-10, if you’d ask me to rate my haughtiness level, I’d be brutally honest to put myself on 9! It’s not an ego, I’d say.But just my nature that I wouldn’t make the first move.But nah! I learned to.A silly clash with a flatmate, who had always assumed, I’d never was shocked when I randomly went and hugged her.There was no need of words or anything.A simple gesture sometimes sorts the things out!
2017, I loved you!
Oh, I have a 5-year-old kiddo daughter now, whom I have never met! I have always debated that I’d always be able to love an adopted kid as much as my own, and now I believe, I'll be (if ever)!
