1st January 2019
I got up, excited about the new year! While brushing my teeth, a nucleus of a thought hit my mind. This is a new year all right, but what is new? I find myself doing the same chores I do every morning. All the celebrations, pomp and joy for what? This is just a new 365-day cycle in repetition. But what changed is the understanding of how we see the surroundings.
With every passing year we learn new things, we get to understand a lot more of the situations, and we also grow mentally strong and mature. This perspective opens a new dimension to how we understand the concept of living. Looking back to the past year, a self-realisation hits hard. All the slipups, misconceptions, misunderstandings come to light, making it clear that these little things in life are here to stay. Our job is to overcome them one by one and learn from the past. That is what makes us more complete.
With every passing year, we grow a year old, adding up a chapter of self-improvement and personal and physical enhancements. New resolutions are made, some are followed, some are not! but then again, what is followed, is the quest to improve, the willingness to handle new responsibilities.
With every passing year, the Earth completes a revolution around the Sun. Over the year, there is a phase where the Earth is near the Sun (the summer) and takes on the heat, this phase describes the phase where we overcome the heat of our lives, the hard to overcome situations. This is the phase which gives us the immunity to problems of the game of life!
Then, comes the phase, just before the midway of the half orbit, the rains! The season of thoughts. Sitting at home with a hot cup of coffee and fritters, it is the time to make further choices. Some may prove out to be fruitful, while some may not. Just after the rains, spring comes with the results of the choices and we see the blossom!
Winter again brings up a new set of obstacles, cold but temporary, these need to be dealt with warmth. These too dry out and wear off in due course of time in the autumn, leaving some new teachings and important wisdom to take on the approaching year and comprehend its experiences
Optimistic in me, dreams for a better tomorrow
“Let 2019 be the harbinger of the best of the best we desire”
