A year is a funny thing. It is like a checkpoint in our life which we accomplish in a particular frame of time.
Every year is different. There is not even a single similarity in the 70, 80, 90 or 100 years that you live. Everything is different.
This year though rung indifferently as well. For me, at least. The year- 2018.
To the people who know me well, know that I don’t like parties. I don’t like the concept of drinking over and dancing at a random place amidst loud music. On 31st December 2017 and 1st January 2018, I was at one such party.
2018 has been the year of giving in. I don’t think I’ve received much of what I’ve given to the universe in this year.
There are countless memories that I’ve made. There have been a lot of lows and highs too.
But the most legitimate thing that existed in 2018 is uncertainty. The transition of 2018 from being engaged into many things to being jobless, studying, sulking and going through all of this has been different.
I will not say that this hasn’t happened to me in the past. It certainly has. The feeling of uncertainty has been an occasional visitor. But previously, it didn’t matter. Life went on and brought me some amazing experiences. Maybe, now too, life will go on.
As we grow older, we learn. Learning is a continuous process. Learning how to face challenges is one of the hardest things but we learn it anyway.
I haven’t penned down my reflection of every year but Colleen Ballinger’s YouTube video gave me the inspiration to do so.
This insight into my life is filled with ambiguity and generic-ness and might not interest every one of you, but I hope at some point you (the reader) relate to it.
2018 was hard. 2019 will be harder. 2020 will be the hardest. You never know.
But all these years, you still keep standing. Having faith and hope in your heart, accepting the change and finally being happy.
Contemplating about all the things that have happened in the past 365 days, makes me feel a lot better.
Breathing and thinking that everything will be alright.
Lastly, I wish all the readers a very happy new year.
