Either we know each other fairly well, so you were ushered here to read what I’ve written, or maybe you got dropped here quite accidentally, browsing away the World Wide Web. Either way, grateful for coming by.
For more than a decade, I’ve diligently followed the ritual of publishing here a note, just around this time of the year when we’ve at hand a brand new calendar waiting to occupy our desk. It’s astonishing how fast time flies, as memories of scribing something similar a year ago is still so vivid. Life wasn’t in anyway stagnant between then and now and so do I presume it was for you too. Changes I’ve had in my life over the last dozen months are of scale so massive that a pause beckons to reflect, more so to digest it.Glad, we get a ‘new beginning’ once every twelve months (or at least we believe so).
It’s that time of the year when we feed ourselves with a double dose of optimism and may have in possession a long list of resolutions that we so hope to get right finally. Personally, I’ve almost always failed to live upto my own agenda crafted on occasions as similar as this, so it’s common sense not to anticipate a perfect life transformation, just because I’ll soon have a new blank diary to journal life’s events. As such it’s hard to envisage flying cars and celestial rearrangements featuring on the opening page of my new diary, therefore I’d prefer to believe that life’s not going to be too different next year too. I do pray for the wisdom to remain open to learn from all lessons that life has in offer.
Nothing inspires me more than the human endeavours and all the hard work that goes into it. So be assured, I’ll continue to root for you for every noble goal that you have aimed to conquer. All the same, I do expect that if you desire to learn to swim, you’d jump into a pool NOW (under supervision) than wait for the New Year Celebrations to conclude. As always, wishing you the best!
I’m happy to know you and thankful to learn from you. I thank God constantly for every single opportunity that has come on my way, prominently the ones that connected us. And occasions such as New Year are excuses for me to get back talking to you and to sincerely thank you for being there for me. I know the New Year 2017 is still some days away. I did have a choice to wait until I grab my new diary to reach out to you for expressing my gratitude or to follow the dictates of my heart of doing it right”Here & Now”. Well, that was easy. As they say, “For Good things, delay not,” not certainly till the dawn of a New Year. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for everything you’ve done for me, and here’s wishing you Wonderful Holidays, Very Merry X’mas and a Happy & Prosperous New Year 2017!
