Time to say Good bye 2011

365 DAYS....
It fluttered easily...
Undoubtedly, most memorable year so far for me...
But, this is exactly what we feel at the eve of each New Year, isn't it??

We will be confused whether to recall the glorified memories of the year to which we need to bid adieu...
Or whether to welcome the New Year with both hands which would add more verdant memories in the next 365 days. (Oopss!!! Its 366days this time....)

We think of the way in which we spent the year. This would enable us to think of the best and worst memories. The friends made and lost. The success celebrated and failure tasted. The quality of time spent with family and the quantity of joy we derived out of it. The silly moments which made us cry and the emotionally draining moments where we stood strong. Some memories make us feel proud and others makes us sit back and wonder what really went wrong.

But hey…
Past is past. Past, being history, nothing much can be done. All we can do is to learn from ours and our family’s as well as friends’ mistakes. We may also make a conscious effort not to repeat the same mistakes again and again!!!


But, what is so special about a new year??
Is it special only because the year in which we would live will change??

Well...
The New Year eve is special according to me because we sit back and think about the 365 days spent...
We rejuvenate ourselves - sometimes consciously; But, most of the time, unconsciously!!
We keep talking about the year that was and was not.
We look back to find where we went wrong and what we did which brought smile on a loved one.
We keep thinking until we find some great thing about the year which overwhelmed us.

We push the bad memories and try to run away from deteriorating thoughts.
We make plans for the New Year celebrations accommodating our friends and family.
We endlessly think on whom we should ring first to wish "Happy New Year"
We expect our most loved one to be the first to wish us.

We think... We think only positive things!!
We think... We think of only good things about people!!!
We think... And we keep thinking of the moments which made us happy!!!
And then, in this process of thinking we would have realized that there are a lot of things which we failed to do.
It may be any of the following...
(It may also be all of the following!!!)
A failure to brush tooth twice a day... 
A morning walk which we always hesitated...
Avoiding the newspaper saying it’s boring or the famous, "I don't have time"...
Skipping breakfast in the name of dieting...
Taking food in front of television instead of family..
It may also be difficulty to say "I love you" to parents, spouse or kids.
It may be many other things as well....
So... We draw an elaborate resolutions...

Someone wrongly said, yes WRONGLY, that resolutions are made to be broken...
Come on... Did we go through the pain of thinking so hard to come out with a resolution which was ultimately to be broken??

Anyways....
New Year is special for the above said reasons.
It is also special due to the New Year cake and sweets!!!
Yummy....!!!!

How easy and great life would be if we sit back and think every day??
If we maintain a journal of events that happened on a day to day basis??
How much fun life would be if we think positively and be surrounded with loved ones??

Every day would turn out to be as special as a new year...
We would feel as ecstatic as we would feel on a new year...

As I always say...
Life is too short to worry or regret...
Snatch the second and enjoy each micro second...
To put it in a Bollywood style...
Kya patha, Kal Ho Na Ho!!!
Jiyo jaise aakhri pal hai jeene ke liye...

Thus I end my last post for the year....
Miss you 2011
