Happy New Year 2017!!!!
So! Finally, we ended 2016 and put it in the bag of history. I understand that 2016 was not really a good year for many, as for me it was ok-ish.
However, when my phone was bombarded with various photo messages and GIF images of sparkling crackers and lights, I wondered why we celebrate a new year Jan 1st (apart from the religious reason) with so much of jubilation and pomp? Is 2017 going to be any different than 2016, 31st December or for that matter a few days/months before? I cannot really see any much changes at least in my life and all I know, no matter what life moves on, be it 2016, 17 or 18 etc. For new beginnings, we need not have to wait for a new day, new month or even new year. It just sounds like another resolution that we all know, we would never follow the minute we make it.
Perhaps, it is the promise of a new day, month or year is another opportunity to start a fresh, do it all again but in a different way, different methods and reach new goals, makes everyone to celebrate and welcome a new year. I hope that stands true to all of us.
Although, I began the very first hour of 2017, shouting on a kid who was our neighbor. Well, I could not help it when he kept shouting “happy new year” for the entire world to hear and burning crackers which disturbed the sleep of all of us at home(pet included). Do not get me wrong, am not so boring that I dislike partying and celebrating. Also, definitely not someone who wants to destroy a small child enthusiasm but seriously this kid kept on shouting endlessly at midnight.
I remember, someone telling me that a new year day should be started with a good laugh, love, smiling with much patience (which I lack) and with all the good things. I started 2017 with not so well, however, the day went on to be good. I hope the 365 ¼ days of 2017 will bring better things to me and to all of us.
So, here I am! Wishing you all for new beginnings, new opportunities, a chance to do it again and come out winning.
Cheers! To all of you and a “Very Happy New Year 2017″
