A New Year to Remember

Attitudes to Make 2019 a Year to Remember

New Year always starts with fun and partying for many, but for me it is all about peace and taking stock of the year gone by. I spend my time thinking of all the positive things in my life and being grateful for what I have had in the year that is almost gone by.   I can't think of a better way to start another year than with a sense of gratitude and fulfillment.

Taking Stock : As I sit down to take stock of the year that is on its last legs, I can only say the balance has been perfect. The losses and gains were perfectly balanced, sorrow and pain were equaled by joy and laughter.

An attitude of  gratitude: There is nothing to complain, an attitude of gratitude is something I have learned over the years. To complain is to find a well of misery and bury myself in it. I choose to look at full picture, the perfect balance of life. 

I don’t ask ‘why me?’ when the good things come my way, I believe I have no business to ask why me when sorrows or pain come my way. Life owes me nothing, it gives me time and it is my business to make the best use of it.


Being prepared: Life warns me every now and again about how short it is, when a friend or a relative or a loved one passes on. Life prepares me sufficiently to take it on as it comes.  It is all about how I adapt and make the best of what life has to offer. 


Believe: I believe that the best is yet to come. I believe in myself and the power I have to choose and direct certain aspects of my life the way I want it to be. This makes each day, each year a day/year to remember and look forward to with hope and great expectation. Expectant hope is what makes life exciting like a kid waiting to open a present.

Make the best of what you have: Anxiety or worry does not cross my path often, when it does I make sure that I remain calm. It is wiser to make the best of what you have than worry about what is not. I choose to enjoy what is mine right now instead of anxiously waiting for the perfect moment. I believe it is the best way to enjoy life and live it to the fullest.


Goals and plans: I have clear goals, I plan to achieve them and work on them. Making each moment worth living depends on me and me alone. Making the best of what I have is a way of making each moment count. For me it is a way of living, in fact the only way of living that is worth it.

I am Unique As I look at the flowers none of them are exactly the same, they are unique as I am, I have learned to appreciate myself and all that is good within me and I work on making these great qualities and talents within me blossom.

I wish that this year will be for you a year of fulfillment as it will be for me. I also wish that you will make it year to remember, a year when positive alignment takes place within you and in the world around you and a year to grow to your best potential
