One more year is over. I am wiser by 365 days more. The year 2009 has been the worst ever in my life, though I would love to say that it had its own silver lining in more than one ways.
On the last day of the year, I am recalling all the good and bad that had happened in the last year. My mother’s sickness (August) was one of the lowest points of the year 09. Then I broke my toe (September) and lost my one and only aunty (Meera Mahi). Apart from that the year had seen me getting fevers/flue/infections time and again. Oh what a relief it’s over now.
On a positive note, I have grown wiser, understood the importance of family and realized where to put my foot down and say NO and actually mean it. In the departing year I have also understood who my real friends are and who are not. I will treasure the former all my life.
Someone has rightfully said that we do need the bad things in life too to understand the value of the good ones. Time heals everything. Remembering the quote an uncle had on his visiting card, “Arey mann shant rah, ye bhi guzar jayega”. Yes it did. I thank God for everything.
Good way to say bye bye to 2009. Welcome 2010 with a smile and with positive thought making process. WISH YOU A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR.
