Be A Winner, This NewYear

Congratulations!!  You have been so amazing
You there! Yes you…you are a bona fide winner

You have made it till the end of one lifeshaping year
You’re all set and geared, for another bountiful year

You could glide smooth through this long dicey year
You bravely overcame all your big and small fears

Your going got tough, but how you evolved even tougher
You did not permit the icy turmoils to make you shiver

You faced lethal demons, that were so hard to beat
You never knew you had it in you, but see…you did

You understood life’s all about stealing joyful moments
You learnt to be grateful for the life’s very existence

You made some friends, but you sure lost some
You got some love, and you did lose some

You took mindful steps towards the betterment of self
You perpetually endeavored to achieve your best

You dived headlong, reached out to grasp a fuller life
You were resolved to work towards a blessed family life

You lost some, but then you did gain some
You made it through, aren’t you just awesome?

You can do it all again, all this and much more
You have it in you, and you always will forevermore

You’ll be blessed by God, in this brand new roller-coaster
You’ll emerge out stronger, year after year, year after year.

    • Thank you so much for the wishes! I reciprocate the same. We all need some generosity from life this year, and every other year. An outpour of magnanimous words is sometimes just an empathy that takes birth after having seen life’s erratic moods, and not just the benign.

    • Hi Nihar! Thanks for the wishes. Year 2016 was a bit unpredictable and probably it was so for many. Hope you had a good one, and I do hope things are better in 2017 🙂

    • Thanks Maniparna! You said it well that we have battled on. In fact, survivors are only those who are able to embrace the good without dwelling on the inevitable miseries, and without getting stuck in time. Wish you too a wonderful year full of happiness 🙂

    • When we have tried our best, and thereafter left with no options but to carry on with head held high, it is then that positive thinking can still get us through. Another way is to change your strategy and try things differently. Sometimes it’s not just our talent and skills that matter, rather what this world wants to see in us. Wish you a great 2017 and may your dreams come true 🙂
