About 2016 I will always be confused.
Some dreams came true.Some didn’t.
New friends made and some relations lost on the way.
Clarity about a lot of things.
But the best part, I wrote .
Much more than I have ever written.
That to me is my favourite memory of 2016.
Even when I didn’t want to write .Didn’t know what to write.Didn’t have the time or strength to write ,I wrote.
Reading I love .But writing has been like my soul’s real home.The comfort food.Almost like mind therapy.
It all started with #Dailychatter and Half marathon .Then MyFriendAlexa, UBC ,and NaBloPoMo challenges.
I realized something about myself again.
The very thing which made me start blogging.
I absolutely love difficult challenges.
2017 give me more of challenges.
Life really gives you the problems you can solve
I realized the opposite of happy is not sad .It’s boredom ,indifference.
So happiness comes from waking up every morning ,looking forward to doing something interesting. That will keep me so engrossed, that my mind chatter stops.
Learn something new everyday that’s my 2017 goal Even if it’s a new word.I will do it.
I fell in love with twitter .I adore Pinterest and Stumbleupon .But twitter is alive .It’s where you can be at your simplest without photoshopped images,and you can still have fun.Learning is a breeze when you are having fun.
I realized healthy eating and living is easier to preach when I make a habit of it myself. I was passionate about a healthy lifestyle before ,now I don’t stop.
Ask me about it and I will chase you till you decide to listen (even if just to get out of your hair)
People online or offline are the same everywhere .
Haters will hate .But if 7 people out of 10 say good things ,that’s not too bad .Right?
You can’t and shouldn’t try to please everyone.
Women everywhere are trying to do more.But.There’s a big BUT. It’s a struggle if you are not a mom,working mom , a SAHM ,WAHM .
It doesn’t matter .Women bully women,pull down other women and make it easier for men to make the glass ceiling higher.
The shackles are real.The more you try to break them ,the tighter they become.
The best way is to pretend they don’t exist and hope they will disappear.
Luckily I met some truly amazing ladies in 2016 .Women who try to do good , no matter what.Who help always.
In 2017 I wish to meet many more such women .
Financial freedom and the journey so far.
The journey has been interesting .Being a doctor has given me a lot of freedom financial and otherwise. But it has also given me a lot of questions.To answer those questions I started blogging. Can blogging make people financially free?
This answer will need some more time.
But things look promising. Just like Charlie’s chocolate factory did.
Discovering the gold mines and landmines, that’s mompreneurs blogging journey.
2016 #Thankfulness list would be incomplete if I don’t mention my bet friend .My husband. I have bored him about everything possible.But he has still believed in my dreams .Stood by me when things looked rocky .Encouraged me during small and big wins and is my bigger supporter and most constructive critique.
How did 2016 treat you? What lessons did you learn?
