SO, here goes.
What is a year?
Up until 2015, years were just a random assortment of days- a jamboree of the good, the bad and the ugly. But as a new year approaches this time, nothing appeals to me more than the thought of starting over anew.
So in the year that went by, I grew up. Yes- a year did what 14 couldn’t. A person who last met me in 2014 probably won’t even recognise me now- I’ve chopped off the hair and shed some weight. And most importantly I’ve matured. I’m not the helium balloon I used to be- joyous and buoyant. I am more grounded. I’m calm and collected. And definitely really proud of the fact that I’ve come this far (:
What made this year so incredible were the situations I was put in, the decisions I took, the dilemma I faced and the people I met. Oh, the people. So many of them. And I’m glad I took this leap- after all what have we got other than alitlle bit of courage and big dreams? Taking the leap from familiarity into the unknown was MY choice. And I am glad I made this choice.
I have learnt a lot from the people I met this year. The deserve a lot more than just a thank you, but that’s all I can give them.
I learnt that it doesn’t matter if your baby slams doors or makes you proud. It doesn’t matter if she falls or soars high- you will love her through it all. Thank you Maa and Papou.
I learnt that if you’re ‘mast’ at heart, nobody/nothing can defeat you. You’ve always got to let yourself dance to the way you’re heart is beating. Thank you and I love you, Surya.
I’ve learnt that it’s okay to love someone with all you’ve got. It’s okay to cry for them and writhe in pain and then admit it. You’re my hero. I thank you, Sheesh.
I’ve learnt that you can find a home miles away from home and be happy. I’ve learnt from you that it’s good to look for happiness even in the smallest of things. Thank you and God bless you, Usu.
I’ve learnt that even the most perverted people have the purest hearts. No matter how much we fight and how much we argue over the smallest of things, you have a special place in my heart. And when you trust me blindly and confess things, you have no idea how happy I feel. I swear I will never break you trust. Never. Thank you and rock on, PK.
These two incredible girls have given me the most incredible relationship advice. They’ve taught me that there may be fights, but your man, is YOUR man. Thank you Shayni and Sawana. We are every body’s squad goals. ❤
And lastly, this one person. Yes, you. I know you’re reading this (because I coaxed you into reading it).
If I start listing all the things he has taught me, I will run out of space. He’s taught me taht bad things can happen to you and you can still gravitate towards the light. He’s taught me that you can be born a Duke and can a die a King. You are more to me than you think. You’re my friend, brother, saviour, protector and more (hoping you haven’t given up yet xD). I thank you. I wanted to write more but then it would get embarrassing. I thank you. 🙂
Phwew. So that’s how my year was. If this post touched you in some way or the other, I’m glad.
Happy New Year.
