 'Y' is for New Year!

"Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow: 
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true."

Very soon we'll be ringing in the New Year. The often-quoted Lord Tennyson’s verses ring in the New Year on a practical and joyful note. In fact, 2015 has gone by in a flash. It seems as if it was only yesterday when we were welcoming it the usual festive way and now ‘2016 is waiting at the threshold of time to enter  our lives so magnificently. Well, time has a speed post!

Truly, today is the right time to introspect about our good, bad days in the past year.  The best way is to recollect our successes and failures and draw some lessons there upon. The beginning of the New Year offers an opportunity to pledge ourselves upon the basis of stern convictions to make our lives more meaningful, enjoyable and happy. Everybody knows that in essence life is a challenge and a struggle. As  thinking beings, we instinctively aim to lead a worthy life by continuously endeavoring to make it more productive. For this to be possible, we need an attitudinal shift. We have to cultivate kindness, more inclusiveness as well as a helping attitude.

This apart, each morning presents a stepping-stone to plunge into something new to expand the existing state. I do believe that our life remains always in the process of becoming. It is never static. There are always possibilities galore to be explored and tried upon. The secret is to focus with mindfulness, whatever we take upon ourselves to do.

There is always a plethora of items on our wish list. Actually, it boils down to, how to achieve them.  Who needs to be told that the power to unleash our energies is within us and we are to inspire ourselves painstakingly. No doubt, there will be set backs because we are human and never would know the outcome of our choices. What we do recognize is that we’ve to put our heart and soul into any mission, which we are convinced about to be purposeful and worth pursuing.

Success will certainly match our efforts in the New Year beautifully. At least that is what we should hope for. I personally am resolving within myself to take positive steps to incorporate a healthy routine and stick to it religiously. This alone can enhance physical and mental wellness, which is the prerequisite for realizing one's dreams.
