Wish you all a very very happy new year 2023 🎉🎉🎉
May all of your dreams come true this year and you achieve everything you have set out for. May you have an abundance of good luck, good health, happiness, peace & success all through the year. May your families be happy and healthy, too.
It’s a deliberately late post because I wanted this post to come as a surprise for you after all the frenzy of the give-and-take of new year wishes gets over. I need you to remember that I’m always around 🤗🤗
I usually spend the new year sitting at home, chilling inside my quilt, watching an old classic movie with delicious food made by me. But this year, for a change, I attended an invite from a close friend and ended up welcoming the new year with a celebration of dance and music. This is unlike me and I think, I surprised myself by doing something unpredictable. Let’s hope the new year will be full of surprises.
I’ve been meeting old friends since the last week of December 2022. I didn’t post any updates here, in December, because I was a part of the organising committee (mainly taking care of the literary activities) of my medical college reunion celebration. It was a weekend of activities. Apart from cultural events and spending time together, we made the batch directory, edited articles for the journal, and conducted a few games. Also, I wrote the foreword of the directory, wrote a message from the editorial board and a few more write-ups. I also wrote and spoke the Welcome Speech. So, yes, I was tied up with a few things in December which kept me away from the blog. But the best part was that I met my old friends who I hadn’t met in years. We studied in college together. Later we separated to work in different parts of India and abroad as doctors of varied specialities. It was a beautiful experience to catch up with most of them.
I’ve always believed that the incoming year is decided by the way you end the previous year and welcome the new year. 2022 was a year of road trips for me. I was travelling almost twice a month. And that may be because I was travelling in December 2021 and I even drove my car for 300 km to reach home on 31st December 2021 🙈😅
This year began with meeting friends. So, I know 2023 will see me meeting more friends… a lot of friends 😍😍
I also write reflections, introspections, and goals in a new diary. That is my guilty pleasure every new year! I simply love buying a new diary and start filling it with my ideas and plans.
Let me know if you buy diaries, write resolutions for the new year or reflections on the year that passed… or any other ritual or belief around the new year. How did you celebrate? Or didn’t?
Everything is perfect. As long as you are happy.
May the happiness and peace continue in the new year too!!!
Stay blessed, happy & healthy 💖💖💖
