Why is the 1st of January special every year? You wake up in the morning , everything is the same. The sun rises from the east, the birds chirp, the noise of traffic, nothing has changed. It is just another day. An ancient Roman King added the month January later to the calendar and made it officially the first month of the year - and the whole world has followed it religiously till now.
Imagine if we did not have new years? No new beginnings, just day after day, continuing with our life. It would have been horrible. We all need breaks , a refreshing new start , a time to stop and look back at what we have been doing, to reflect our thoughts , and look forward to a NEW BEGINNING.
2013 was an emotional roller coaster for me. Lots of ups and downs. Sometimes I even wished the Mayans were right and the world could have ended by 2012. Sometimes I felt like I was on top of the world. I cried, I laughed, I was embarrassed, I blushed, I fought, I compromised, I fell down and I got up. Well, life is all about this, isn't it? Full of surprises, not knowing what is going to happen next. I am spending New year at home after 3 years. I was in Bangalore last year, I am in Madurai now and who knows where I will be for the next new year!
I am putting all that behind me now, getting myself ready for a new start. All my inhibitions and questions that went unanswered, will find its answer this year, I hope. New hopes and promises fill my mind and something tells me that 2014 is going to be much much better than 2013. Wish this year is more happier and peaceful than the year that went by. Let's see what 2014 has in store for us..
Wishing you all a very happy and joyful new year.. And best wishes to all of us for ' a new beginning '..
