Resolutions… was a sort of thing I did as a teenager every new year. It kept me excited for first couple of weeks or maybe till March. I would not procrastinate, take care of my health or relationships or whatever was my priority then. But sooner or later, I would fall back into lazy whirlwind and they would lose their aura.
But my strength was to pick up again. So from coming auspicious days, say Ram Navami, Shivaratri or any other major days, I would start again. And again. And again. 👏 I would pat myself on the back and start again. And that I believe is my biggest strength. To rise again..to not lose hope and heart. To not give up.
This was the second most difficult December in a row. 2020 December was crazy. 2020 ended with my father getting hospitalized and my Mama fighting for his life. My dad recovered, my Mama went to Vaikuntha Lok. It was heart breaking. We were all shattered.
But still I will call it a learning experience. It showed us how resilient we are. We recognized our strengths in time of crisis. We all stood together like rock for each other. We didn’t let go and fought on. We made our compromises with life and circumstances.
This December 2021 we all contracted Covid. We had plans. We had travel plans. New Year escape plans. On the other hand God made plans to tight bound us in our own home. We were tied together in misery but then there was gratitude. To get away from stress of winter packing and to all cuddle together and have plenty of rest, admist few febrile punches was still a treat. We all did decently well and had 7 days of much needed togetherness.
Man proposes, God disposes! Anyway lots of gratitude to dear Almighty for another year end. May he keep blessing all of us. Aum Shanti! Shanti! Shanti!
My new year resolution is to write more, read more, learn more. To be a better person each day. To so self practice and introspection. To let go of resentments. To be less angry. To be stronger. To not be careless. To make mental, physical, social and spiritual health a priority. To give myself a round of applause daily and to be better at all I do step by step. 🚶♀️
