Just a thought..
Another year gone by! This is the inevitable thought in the minds of all, as another year comes to a close. It does not matter, whether the past 12 months were joyful or painful or a mixed bag; it's not too late to end the year thinking about the learning and lessons. Many people would also be evaluating their lives and planning New Year resolutions because of an old European custom which says - “What one does on this day one will do for the rest of the year.”
Irrespective of our experiences, we must accept that every passing year adds wisdom to life. Like all things around us the passing year too is viewed in different ways. For some, it is the time for reflection and for some rumination. No doubt then, thoughts about the passing year have been expressed by many, in words that are bound to linger in our memory because, they personify each thought giver’s distinctive perception of this annual phenomenon. Here are some of my favourite pearls of wisdom from those who have traversed life year on year and crafted their own unique perspective!
“An optimist stays up until midnight to see the New Year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.”
_ Bill Vaughan
“I’ve become fascinated by the idea that it’s really achievable to make two or three small improvements in a week and by the end of the year, its 150 improvements.”
_ Darrell Hammond
“Well, we have a whole new year ahead of us. And wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could all be a little more gentle with each other, a little more loving, and have a little more empathy, and maybe, next year at this time we’d like each other a little more.”
_ Judy Garland
Finally, the way you think about 2021 will affect how you welcome in 2022.
Come, let us build our mental strength, infuse motivation, sharpen our skills and get ready to tackle whatever life throws our way the next year. WELCOME 2022!!
