Taking Stock – 1/12 of 2017

After all the hoopla about how 2016 was the most difficult and harrowing year in recent time (It was), day after day after day have passed and all of a sudden, we’ve completed 1/12th of 2017 as well.

January 2017 has been a peaceful year, the calm before the storm perhaps, a year of doing everything I promised myself I would, I have read more books (starting book # 4 tonight), worn heels more often, worn red lipstick, shopped more, and most importantly prayed more.

This year has been a year of lessons (Read: Blessings in disguise) as well –

  • I realized (again!) that friends can break your heart in more ways than boyfriends ever can! – Not going into it in this post, but I will write about it soon.

  • Not everyone deserved your loyalty and kindness. And for the people who make you question this, it is indicative that you should direct your loyalty and kindness inward and move on.

  • Look beyond the surface, especially when it comes to People. If anyone are trying hard to prove to be a certain way, look closer, and you’ll be surprised (or Shocked!).
  • My career is important but it isn’t everything (Its a Hugely significant part, but not my whole life).
  • Writing gives me a real sense of ease, and the more I write, the better I feel, a good way to dispel pain.
  • A sense that I may have been TOO nice lately, taking too much on from ungrateful people, giving too much rope to people around me, and being taken for granted a bit too often. Maybe its time to remind everyone who they’re really dealing with..

So here’s to a good month. January 2017, its truly been a pleasure!

Tomorrow will be another day, another beginning, more opportunities to be fierce, but mostly month of surprises (I hope).

Better catch some Zzzzs now.

Until next time, Goodnight. ❤

The year so far- taking stock !

As another year almost draws to a close, I feel almost compelled to take stock and see how my life has changed. It has been good, it has been bad, sometimes it has been downright ugly. But despite the mixed bag, its been utterly wonderful, and there is still a month and a half left to make it even better.

No one tells you how it feels when something you have wanted and waited for, for the longest time, comes true.. It takes your breath away, the joy and the feeling of gratitude.

For me it was my fairy-tale turn of events.. My own once upon a time, my larger than life dreams, my starry-eyed views, my trials, the evil witches who cross my path, my knight in shining armor, valuable lessons learnt, successes and triumphs, the unfortunate separation caused only by our pride and everything in between.. Today as I sit and write this, I am in anticipation of my glorious happily ever after..

For everything, there’s a perfect time, for every event, there’s meaning. For every life there is significance. Somehow everything makes sense. The biggest lesson learnt this year is that of patience, the patience to let go of things that are beyond my control, let go of old wounds, let go of the past and to just breathe and truly live in the moment, cause once it has passed, only memories remain. I might not know a lot about a lot. I do know this, the big guy in the sky is looking out for me.. And for now, that’s enough to make me realize that my life is wonderful !!

And to the person who has made this journey worthwhile, I just have one thing to say.. The best is yet to come !

Until next time..
