Day One of 2019

Wohoo! We all made it through 2018.

Some gloriously, some successfully, some patiently, some aggressively, some depressingly, some easily…but WE made it!

“And that’s what matters most”

After the outrageous, overrated and vehement wait for the end of year, I woke feeling indifferent. Not many resolutions made, no drastic life decisions, no extravagant goals or aims but the genuine want to be content. I realized that majority of times, I set my self up to be pressurized by expectations and outcomes I desire of me. However, this doesn’t slightly incline toward stagnancy of any sort. Being too comfortable can initiate a downfall in life as well.

Given the highly demanding market for ‘humans’ as a resource, the competition is dire. Being mindful, not just politically correct or sensitive is essential. I also realized ‘one can’t keep pouring into cups with an empty jar’. Which means, for me to give anything (time, affection, money, attention) to anyone, I should be able and willing to give the same to myself first‘.

This morning, I felt the absolute need to love, respect and value my being. Each year brings a 365-paged book with as many as chapters, events, journeys, voyages, relationships, people as you want. Fill it with your heart, love and emotions. Take risks, plan trips, meet new faces, learn different things, eat their food, wear their clothes, feel sincerely, choose wisely, fight courageous, stay humble, and don’t stop believing…are some of the things off my list to fill the book with.

You get to be the author of your “2019” book. Now go write!
