Life Lists, New Years & All that's left behind...

New year's eve. It's mostly fun, intoxicating, full of drama & promises... most of which go null & void the next morning. But nevertheless, we - the bunch of hopeful humans that we are: spend moderate amounts of time in creating, planning and setting new lists and resolutions that we will abandon with greater speed and agility than we showcased while creating them.

When I look back not so fondly at the year that just passed me by - I am nostalgic, a little paranoid maybe and also relieved that it's going away. Things haven't been great this year no doubt - but before complaining too much I also have to acknowledge the fact that I lived through most of it, survived atrocious amounts of confusions and drama and also learnt to refuel myself with love, compassion et all.

What I have learnt is -

Life lists are fun to make, but difficult to follow through - so don't take them too seriously. Love them to the core and celebrate it if they work out at the end, but don't waste your tears upon them for sure.

Leave everything behind that you don't deserve to carry along. You have made your choices and you have decided your course of action... whatever doesn't fit into the larger scheme of things and bogs you down in your journey needs to be left behind. Like my friend Alice says - don't carry the world on your shoulders, you have enough of yourself to carry already.

So, go on have an awesome time. Drink up my lovelies and spend the last few hours of this year with the best bunch of people you know. Laugh and dance, eat a delicious meal and don't forget to pray before your pass out tonight. 'Cos that's exactly what I'll be doing.

Cheers to a super year ahead.
