New Year Wishes - Year 2010
By rajeshr on Dec 30, 2009
Before we bid farewell to this year and welcome the New Year, it isn't inappropriate to spare some moments to reflect on the surprises - some pleasant, some shocking- that life had in store for us in the year that's passing by. Such sessions of reflection would only bring into light a common pattern in our lives: some moments of glory, some of utter misery, some exciting ones, some very depressing, some that invokes happiness and some grievous and sick. One would imagine that all such elements of emotion shall continue to show up in everyone's life and that all of us, at least on the day before another New Year in our life, spend a few minutes figuring out means that'd help us raise ourselves to a different plane enabling us to digest all ups and downs in life with equanimity, and not just hope for a New Year full of only favourable events.
Like I have written elsewhere, every time I fall into a retrospective mood, what comes to my mind instantly are memories of time spent with some good human beings and their influence in my makeup: be it my loving relatives, affectionate friends, extremely professional colleagues or cherished training participants. So on the last day of an eventful Year 2009, the least I should do to satisfy my conscience is to spend some time remembering them all, expressing my deep felt gratitude and affection. I thank God for connecting me with so many wonderful people and giving me opportunities after opportunities to learn so many valuable lessons in life. I'm hopeful, the Year 2010 would bring me many more such great 'teachers'.
Here's wishing all a very happy, peaceful and prosperous New Year 2010.
