A new start

And a brand new year begins!

So I have this (silly?) belief that whatever you do on New Year's Day is representative of what you will do for the rest of the year. For the last many, many years, I have made it a point to make sure that on New Year's Day, I do a bit of everything that I intend to do all year. Today was no different. Heck, I even went to the gym for just 20 minutes in spite of a very bad knee (that's been giving me hell at my skating lessons).

And of course, I couldn't let this day end without blogging!

I will blog later about the highlights of 2018, as well as share some strange family resolutions I have planned to implement for 2019 (one called the 5% rule and another called the black box rule). For now, I just want to wish all bewdas a very happy new year! Sending you all the positive vibes I can, especially those related to good health and happiness.

See you soon!

Happy New Year!
Hope a fun new thing to do occurred to you on New Year’s Day! (So it happens throughout the year)!
Also glad you still like blogging! Yay!
(You could retire with honor anytime).

Happy new year to you too Sayesha! Amidst my crazy last week of 2018, I remembered that you did not do any year end post. So glad that you wrote this post! Hope you find the time and energy to do all that you wish to do in 2019.

The fourth day of the year is auspicious too :))

I might be reflecting your own anecdote back to you, 'cause I can't remember where I heard it. It was someone who met an eighty-plus year woman who daily did laps in the swimming pool. The someone said admiringly, "I hope I'm doing similar when I'm your age". Said the elderly lady skeptically, "do you do such today?". The someone said, "no". "Then you won't be doing it when you're eighty either", said the elderly lady.

आज कहै मैं काल भजू, काल कहै फिर काल
आज काल के करत ही, औसर जासी चाल।
So if you didn't do it on January 1st, do it today :) :) :)
