A Very Belated New year post
In dire times, passions take a back seat. The things ( and people most of the times) you love the most are gracious enough to wait till you are ready. Till you are out of the rabbit hole. This blog had been my faithful companion- during my lows and highs. It stood by me in times of trial and jumped with me in times of joy. (Yes! I consider 'it' to be a person, just like I consider books to be 'a' person or 'multiple' people). Yet, I had to temporarily abandon it. Despite my tardiness and sloppiness, the blog held onto me.
Sometimes making me read what I wrote years ago and reassuring me.
Sometimes through its kind readers dropping in a comment/email to check in on my sanity.
Sometimes coercing me to scribble something and store in the draft box for catharsis.
Even when I was disloyal, the blog remained faithful.
So its time to give back the loyalty and what better occassion than reviving some old traditions-- Resolution time.
This blog had seen many resolutions . Some were broken, some were not. Regardless of its action status- it was always a good exercise for the tired brain and the overworked mind. A time to set the stop watch again.
So this year, I just have two very simple resolutions---
1. Let go
As Zen as it may seem, that was the biggest lesson I learnt last year. Things might not go the way you planned- but it can work for the better. I still have my dreams and aspirations; but Im not terribly disappointed if life doesnt take me the route I wanted to go. When you fall, you will learn to rise up- and thats all that matters. And when you let go, magic happens.
2. Be a child
This one might be a little tough. But yet, I believe its worth the battle. I just want to dream without abandon; be free of jealousy and fear; have the courage to seek the unknown; and mostly to believe we can still make the world a better place. When you are a child, nothing seems impossible.
So there is mine! What are your resolutions???
Happy New year to you all!
