Hello 2010!

Dear 2009,

You've had brought with you a whole lot of happiness and a little bit of sadness, made me smile those never ending smiles and made me cry a little bucket (and I assure you it was a teeny weeny one) of tears. But you know what? The best thing you taught me was to take everything in my stride, which is the reason I can say confidently and with much surety that I was happy for most of this year!


5 Lessons Learned


1. Never to take anything in life too seriously. If you feel like saying up next - '... coz you will never get out of it alive anyway', I wouldn't stop you! ;)

2. How much you do for anyone can never ever be enough, so limit yourselves! - This has proved helpful for me, and I know some others who can use this pointer to avoid further disappointments.

3. Listen to your instincts - They're ALWAYS right! - Well... a woman's instincts are more powerful, so I dunno if the same philosophy would hold true for guys ;)

4. Be around more with happy people - Trust me, it helps a lot! But that doesn't mean you dump your friends when they are in need.

5. Learn to love my blog and life will love you....

.........

Okay, the last one was a joke. I wasn't getting any fifth pointer! :(

Philosophy and jokes apart, hope you guys have a blessed 2010! May all the seasons next year bring you truckloads and truckloads of happiness and may all of your dreams be fulfilled...


Happy New Year 2010!


Signing off,
With much love...
Dhanya

P.S : Don't forget to wish me too! I am off for few days to spend quality time with family and relatives. Will see you when I get back. And please feed my fishies while I am gone no? Miss me.. :)

  8. Well…Well…Well
    The 4 lessons carried exceptions to them and were much debatable…Hence I loved following the 5th point much. Why not, after all your blog deserves it. :)
    I wish you have/get more happiness and success in this coming year than the previous one. Hey Have a nice quality time…:)

    P.S. If you ask all the readers to feed those fishes…then there is a grave danger of making them seriously ill because of indigestion or hunger. Hehehe…
    New Year wishes to those fishes as well…

  18. May you get a clean bill of health from your dentist, your cardiologist, your gastro-enterologist, your urologist, your proctologist, your podiatrist, your psychiatrist, your plumber and the I.R.S.

    May your hair, your teeth, your face-lift, your abs and your stocks not fall; and may your blood pressure, your triglycerides, your cholesterol, your white blood count and your mortgage interest not rise.

    May New Year's Eve find you seated around the table, together with your beloved family and cherished friends. May you find the food better, the environment quieter, the cost much cheaper, and the pleasure much more fulfilling than anything else you might ordinarily do that night.

    May what you see in the mirror delight you, and what others see in you delight them. May someone love you enough to forgive your faults, be blind to your blemishes, and tell the world about your virtues.

    May the telemarketers wait to make their sales calls until you finish dinner, may the commercials on TV not be louder than the program you have been watching, and may your check book and your budget balance - and include generous amounts for charity.

    May you remember to say "I love you" at least once a day to your spouse, your child, your parent, your siblings; but not to your secretary, your nurse, your masseuse, your hairdresser or your tennis instructor.

    And may we live in a world at peace and with the awareness of God's love in every sunset, every flower's unfolding petals, every baby's smile, every lover's kiss, and every wonderful, astonishing, miraculous beat of our heart.

    HAPPY NEW 2010 :D

  40. Some really good points to ponder over....though I agree to disagree with u on the 2nd point.
    I always do the best I can....rising above the herd is what it is called.
    I'd even go far as to say...dont expect anything from anybody. If they appreciate u its a bonus but if they dont u never expected anything anyway....yeah yeah I know its easier to preach than practice;-D

    Have a wonderful year ahead!!!!!!

    p.s: u've been awarded:-))!!!!
