As the Journey begins Again

As we finish another spin around Sun, we almost are at starting place(figuratively ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) ofย  our journey once again. May be that’s why it’s said, ”It’s the journey that counts, not the destination !”

Many things have happened last year, good and bad with intricate balance. Life as student has been hard, balancing : studies, expenses, physical and mental health and still finding enthusiasm to do something that I love once in a while. I have missed family more and more and struggled to feel the purpose of being here. My father has been on complete bed rest since last November because of slipped disc of Spine and I don’t know how long will it take for complete recovery. My mom is managing alone with not so frequent help from out relatives half a mile away. I am worried everyday and (a million thanks to whats-app) I try to ease their minds as much as I can, so they won’t feel alone so much. It’s not enough but that will have to do till I can afford the travel without expense worries.

You will forgive me if I abruptly switch to better events because I need a closure too, to end the chapter of this year with peace and some sense of happiness. I have accomplished few things. I traveled 5 hours a day for a full day work in 4-month internship (I guess I can add this to my strength for future interviews ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). My Greek friend Mag gave me her Guitar for safe keeping and had encouraged me to learn playing. That was 5 months back and I was lazy for next 4 months. But, I began in December and the melody from the strings soothes me,cheers me each day. Some basic notes but still it’s nice just to hear the sounds.

I have always felt that we should never forget to foster ourselves, rediscover and make a special niche for ourselves as individuals. Doing something because we like it and not thinking of how others will feel. I have said this over and over to my near and dear ones. And I am happy that some of them have actually tried this. They have been found time out of their super busy lives and tried doing something they love and I have been fortunate to be there, to watch them evolve and loving themselves.

As the last leaf of this year closes, the bad will be forgotten, the good will remain cherished, giving us the much required encouragement to revive our spirits and send us on another journey forward.

I hope the new year brings you great joy and all your dreams and wishes come true.

Farewell 2017 !!!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
