Welcome 2015

Dear 2015,

  I hope that you have bundles and bundles of goodness for everyone all through the year. May you Keep everyone in good health, let peace prevail in our lives , make dreams/wishes of all of us come true, reward hard work and sincerity, offer help for all those in trying circumstances, overall May you keep everyone happy.

Dear 2014,
 First of all, Thank you, for all that you gave and didn't give as well.  As with the years in the recent past, you came and went past like a "flash". A good friend remarked that as a person grows older, he/she feels that every year passes by a little too quickly. The reason he gave was : as we grow older, every year becomes a smaller fraction of the overall life that we have lived so far. A child in class 2 feels the year is longer as the year is 1/7th of the child's life, whereas a 30 year old finds the year whizz past as the year becomes 1/30th of his lifetime.

Anyways,returning to you,2014,the year started with a surgery, recovery after that, then this job offer which needed to relocate, confusion and the decision making process, the process of shifting houses in blr, having to resign the job , some purchase and the move, re-starting the process of finding a house in a foreign country, getting an everyday routine set, finding hospitals to continue the medical care, getting to work with people from different cultural and language backgrounds, having office cubicle shifted thrice in 3 months, getting to manage with whatever vegetarian options are available, sharing cooking and cleaning with S, living with S (without the Mil) for the first time since marriage, realising that I can also cook decently as long as the brain and mind are sane,realising that doing the dishes is no big deal, finding ways to make these chores simpler, getting used to the numbing silence, weather.. It has been a year that was little different from the previous ones, though I have listed a huge list above, I wouldn't call it a great year. Undoubtedly, I'm thankful for these changes that you brought into our lives, for without these little changes, I might have fallen into a vicious cycle of depression that the years before you saw me in. Thank you for opening my mind and heart to experience change, enjoy the acres of greenery that comes into sight as I walk to work each day, take in the varied colours of autumn, prepare for winter , being open to interact with people from different cultural backgrounds, helping me to be myself when it comes to attire or food, and more importantly, Thanks a ton to my better half ,S who shares  household work or sometimes does all of it if I'm not in the mood for it. He doesn't flinch one bit when it comes to these. Thanks to his bachelor days when he was away from home and had to do all of these by himself.

Overall, you have been ok to me. Please do tell/order your successor to be good,really great. I desperately need a good year.

Thank you!

Wish everyone a very Happy and a Prosperous 2015. May 2015 be a good year for all of us. All those participating in Blogathon-2015, all the best. Let's bump into each other once in a while
