The year finally comes to a close, leaving us with a baggage of emotions and events to ponder over. We must have had innumerable moments, some leaving us with beautiful memories to be cherished, and some ending up teaching us a lesson to be remembered. It is possible that some of us might have been at our lowest ebb, where gloominess, disappointment, and failure led to negativity creeping in and feeding on our confidence and hopes. Left with nothing, we choose to rant and rave and end up regretting it later. In fact, contrary to the same, we should rather be grateful, for as soon as a tumultuous period of 365 days draws to an end, we have a fresh set of days emerging, right up ahead, to make up for.
Every little thing counts. Each day offers us opportunities galore. It is okay, if we could not score good marks. It is okay, if we failed in a relationship. It is okay, if we had given into pessimism. Here comes the time to right all wrongs. And the art lies in taking things in our stride, and making an effort to do well the next time. It is this very opportunity coming our way that we need to celebrate and revel in. This is the time of the Sun rising from amongst the dense clouds, of birds chirping, of rivers serenading. New Year is all about radiating positivity all around. To have no regrets or remorse, but to be “Bonny and Blithe”. In fact, start this year by doing a good deed. Be it providing a cozy blanket to a shivering man on the street, or simply smiling and laughing it off. Grab the day and start afresh, this time with more precision. Wish you a Happy New Year!
