Life is a mysterious journey. When I look back, since childhood I find that I lived my life as if I am going through a story. A story that is a bit predictable and more unpredictable. Some parts of the story were designed by my parents and family. But still there were things and people who came into life as surprise. Most of you will agree that even if we plan our life stories, the element of mystery and unknown is always there. This feeling often touches our hearts that a Supreme Being is watching over all of us and writing or editing our story. It's New Year, and for me its another milestone of my life.... another chapter.... a mystery will unfold slowly and I am curious to know how is it going to be this year?
You may think that I am weaving a story to create some suspense. But I would like to ask, are we not curious enough to know our future? That is the reason the newspapers and magazines give yearly horoscopes on New Year, and we read it with curiosity. The astrologers on TV channels give predictions according to different Sun signs.
Every year on last day of December, I relive the important events and experiences of the year, review my wish list and write a gratitude letter. The wishes that were not manifested, I add them again to New Year wish list. You also must have made your New Year resolutions and thought of some dreams to manifest this year. With full energy and enthusiasm we are ready for another beginning.
Someone said, "In this fragile world one should dare to dream." A person without dreams is poor. While working on your dreams, be consistent. Daily after meditation visualize that you have already achieved this. You can also do this before you go for sleep and also the first thing when you wake up in the morning. Along with your personal dreams, I wish you to explore few more aspects of life. I have found many people have lost their charm in life. Life has become so monotonous for them that any different occasion is just another routine day. When I ponder over this entire why this happen? I have found that sometimes the harsh reality and bitter experiences of life are so overwhelming that there is no space left for tender dreams.
Our delicate emotions are lost somewhere in deep corners of the heart and we become insensitive. It needs a lot of courage to remain sensitive and lively in life. To regain our lost connection with life and ourselves we need to put efforts. If I want to bring positive changes in my life and bring my life on track again, I need help. Nobody except me can help me. I have to take the first step towards myself. Then nature and other people will automatically support me. Here are few suggestions to start with.
♡ Acknowledge and accept your pain or issues. Stop telling lies to yourself.
♡ be simple and keep your life simple. Be true to yourself. Don't be afraid of shattering your image or being judged by people around us. Sometimes it's the biggest fear that doesn’t let us live.
♡ Start your hobby again. You will revive your connection with yourself again and start feeling optimistic again.
♡ Daily do (1-3minute) meditation. Close your eyes. Take 3deep breaths. Then think of the times in your life when you felt very powerful, happy, joyful and enthusiastic and also full. Relive those moments again. Daily repeat this simple ritual and you will find that life is having movement again.
♡ Start learning something new. It can be a new language, art or something. For example (painting, music, meditation, Reiki, laughter club).
To conclude, life doesn't bring all good. We can’t choose every color. Besides hard and harsh experiences, life is worth living. Let us count our blessings and practice gratitude. Let us begin this another new chapter with a cheerful smile. Let us bring liveliness and positive vibrations in our life and also in others too.
A Very Blissful Happy New Year!
