Another Pace In The Journey Of Life!

Hello Everyone,

It’s the 6th day of New Year today and this is going to be my first post of 2018.  I hope you all are enjoying your new year!

Here we go again.  Another year is closed and another blank page is rolled out in front of us, and it’s the time to take this as an opportunity to write a new chapter of life, and of course, a time to say goodbye to our past and pave the way for our future.  Nonetheless, it appears to me that my 2017 has gone rapidly, it seems like I had recently celebrated 2017.  But yeah, it’s a year that has passed never to return.  So, how you have given the farewell to 2017? How you have celebrated your new year?



Welcoming 2018:


If you ask me, I would say, like every other year, this year also I had a small New Year party at my house.  We have a joint family in which there are 16 members including 9 youngsters (siblings and cousins), so it’s always a fun to celebrate an occasion/festival with all of them and basically, having just a small party with them means a lot.  According to me, the best happiness comes to you when you share few laughs with your near and dear ones i.e your family and your close friends.  Although I won’t lie, those New Year’s Eve parties seem fascinating and I am not trying to bash on anyone who goes to those parties.  Even I would like to attend one someday in future.

So yeah, we had a small party at our house that started late evening.  We played games, had food, and bought gifts for everyone (it was like a little 'Happy New Year' gift).  At 11:59 p.m., we began the countdown and at approx 12 midnight, we had fireworks and shouted for joy.  Following that, we cut the cake, cheered with everyone and gave New Year’s greetings and family hugs.  And before I forget, we danced until 2 a.m. and took pictures together.  Overall, we had quality family time.  Next day, on New Year’s Day, we went to the temple as always and worshiped and prayed to the Lord.  So, this is how we welcomed our 2018 in our own way.

Reflection of 2017:


Although the past year was quite a rollercoaster, I had to find a new job because the firm where I was working had got notice and would probably be closed down, my mom had an operation, and there was a death in the family and so on.  On the other hand, we had got awesome news pertaining to my dad's employment; there was a marriage in the family, I had started this blog and some other great things have happened too.

As I aforementioned I had started Scenario of Life last year and it’s been 4 months now.  There has been a huge learning curve that was to be expected as a newbie.  I didn’t know anything about blogging before I started this blog.  But now, I can say I have created a space, a website that reflects me.  Scenario of Life has become a part of me and it has certainly helped me become more outspoken and given me the chance to voice my opinion.  Of course, it could use some tweaks here and there, but all in all, I love it and I am proud of what I have created.  My work is being recognized and this blog has been awarded for 12 times last year.  I am so thankful for all of you and for the previous year, that has taught me so many valuable lessons.  The previous year has taught me that if you want something or if you want to do something then you have to dive in.  Overall, it has been a year of hope and thankfulness.

The Beginning of 2018:


Now, I am looking forward to 2018 and what it brings.  For me, this will be the year of being more positive and the year of making more dreams comes true.  As they say - “Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement.  Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.”  So, in addition to the above, this will be the year of being more confident too and of being the better version of myself.  I hope this year illuminate our life in every aspect.


I am glad we are in 2018.  I wish you all a very happy and a prosperous New Year filled with immense happiness that brings joy and mountains of love.   May your soul be as pure as water and your days shine as bright as the sky.  I pray that by Gods grace this will be a "Blissful" and a "Wonderful" year for all of us. ☺

How was your new year’s celebration?  How did you celebrate? Did you make any New Year resolution? Or if you have a word for the year, let me know in the comment section below.  I would love to hear.

Stay Blessed, Be Happy...!! :-)

  2. Even though, you had a roller coaster last year, I know it made you tough and learned a lot. We had cold NYE and was able to visit Niagara Falls, but it's just a 5-min visit :D Wishing you a great 2018!
