2021 – An empty canvass

You are full of opportunities
Or full of hurdles,
You are full of surprises
Or full of shocks,
You are full of love
Or full of hate,
You are full of happiness
Or full of remorse,
You are good
Or bad,
You take shape of
Reality or my fear,
I have the full privilege
To paint you as I want !

Have you planned your year ahead

I remember reading this somewhere “New year is like a new diary to be filled”. That’s quite true though. In these 365 pages, we have the opportunity to add as many chapters as we like. We can try new hobbies to find our interest in it. We can find new friends to share our life’s secret. We can find our life partner to hold hands for the rest of our life. We can find a new job of our choice. We can read books from our reading list. We can travel to new places to enrich our experience. We can rewrite the old chapters in last year with a new perspective. Close your eyes and starts planning. Who knows you will end up collecting wonderful memories in this new diary!

Let’s not tag 2020 as bad memory

It’s a new year, a new beginning. Are you quite excited like a child opening the gift to find what this year has in hold for you? I am not going to deny, I am also pretty excited.  Before planning 2021, Let’s look back and peek at 2020 for a moment. I know it’s a tougher year for everyone, thinking it all again makes us sigh aloud. But come on, do you agree every tough situation also teaches us something when we change our perspective?

How simple our life was before pandemic? We worked hard in our job, to spend more on something meaningful like education or our future home, adding memories through the trips, shopping a lot or simply for time-pass like movies and snacks. We believed all this makes us happy or it keeps a healthy social circle.

After pandemic, everything changed upside down. Many people lost their job which they are holding dearer than their life. Many people couldn’t go out on a trip, frankly, living in pandemic itself was very adventurous. Many people didn’t shop, well there was no need for new dresses, pyjamas became our all-time companion.  But none of these stopped our life, it went on in the new normal way.

2020 has taught us many things we weren’t very eager to learn otherwise. Even when you put all your life in the job, it only took a few minutes for the company to lay you off when it comes to cost-cutting. We were living peacefully at home without partying or vacationing. We have realized the expense we were doing all were years like shopping or movie is not at all necessary to lead a happy life. It has highlighted the importance of savings for any emergency situation and also the possibility of not having a job. We got loads of time to spend with our family. Our new normal was like a wakeup call for everyone. 

Considering all these, if you rethink, 2020 has taught as much hidden good things and has raised many meaningful questions in our mind. Do you still tag 2020 as simply ‘unfortunate’ year?

Did you decide on your “new year resolution” yet ? I would call it “wish list”. Resolution sounds too strict like a rule to follow, but wish list from the name itself make us happy and do.Let’s search something quick from your wish list, which you think have first priority in the list.

Here goes mine “I want to smile more and be peaceful and to pass on that smile to as many as possible. ”

Leave your comments here. Fingers crossed. Who knows an angel might wave its wand in the same time 😉

Thank you 2018

It feels like yesterday since I wrote farewell story to 2017. But it’s been already a year.

When I think about 2018 overall, a peaceful smile plays in my face. Because I had a wish list. At first, I thought this year also, wishes will remain just as wishes. But to my surprise, I have ticked off most of my wishes. Let’s see the list.

  • To complete my short stories book. I have published it with help from my friends. You can check on this quick link.

  • To read good books

I have read many books this year ,one of wonderful book which changed my thinking completelyis “the sapiens” by Yuval Noah Harari. Everyone should read it at least once in life.

  • To stay fit and peaceful

I went on jogging and many long distance running race. It was fun.

  • Stay up to date with current news and to learn investment.

I had attained new hobby with practice ‘Drawing’, which I am very happy about. You can check out my previous posts. Things turned out so well this year, I want to remember 2018 as ” fulfilling year”. I wish I keep up the same energy level for the new set of wish list next year.

Thank you 2018 for giving me chance to sort out my life 😃

Last day,Last minute

Like the last  drop of rain
Like the last beam of sun
Like the last  sip of  the coffee
Like the last bite of chocolate
Like the last page of novel
Like the last step towards goal
Like that it’s pleasant last day of this year
which highlights all those days behind
All these can be only felt not described
Lets enjoy the new year
and also savour this last day
live this moment and love this last  minute 🙂

New year , New hope, New Life

Here comes the new born year,
So as the amusement it has.
Make room for cheerful thoughts,
Brush up the sad memories,
Feel the magical word “hope”,
Erase the word “impossible” from dictionary,
Forget the past,
Let your sorrows get lost,
Give up failures, But never stop trying
Renew your vision and await success
Pat your shoulder for what you did,
Give thumps up to do what u dream,
Reborn with confidence,
because miracle is yet to happen 😉

Say cheese

 

 Life is like camera

Here ends the last year’s roll

Develop the gathered magical pictures

Frame it with fine memories

Decorate the heart walls,

Dust off the lens,

Load new year’s roll in it

with fresh mind renew the pictures,

collect the incredible or crazy things

Freeze the nice moments

Lock all the emotions

Every picture tells a story

Playful smile,painful tears,hidden mischief,undefined joy

Each one becomes memorable in some way

Be keen observer of best snaps

Experiment with creativity

Being professional is not important,

portrait the lovely moments in your style 😀
