First in 2009

Wish you ALL A Prosperous and Happy New Year !!!

Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be happy and successful ...

Have a Successful Year ahead !!! 2009 HAPPY AND HEALTHY NEW YEAR

"Everything in life is temporary. Darkness of the night; or a bright day. Even sunrise is temporary; so is sunset. So if things are going good, enjoy it because it won't last forever. And if things are going bad, don't worry. Because it won't last forever either. Everything passes by"

Have a great life ahead !!! .

A year has passed, since i started blogging, though I started the blog long back but started writing only a year back. What a great enlightening journey it has been ! In the beginning..i was a complete novice..not that i am an expert now, but then i didnt know any short forms..like what is D or P:)...like that, and if got some comment,didnt know that i must acknowledge it, then my daughter sat with me and told me..ma , the blog is like your home and if somebody comes to ur home, aint u going to visit them and acknowledge them. and me felt too shy to reply the comment or write a comment. Would you believe it if i said that initially i used to ask my D to write on my behalf:), it was the same as when I got married, everybody called us for dinner, and i being so shy would avoid the invitations like anything, sometomes I would ask my H to go alone..poorH..he will say...but they have called because they want to welcome u:(.....I cant believe , i have changed over the years so much...from a complete silent introvert to a total extrovert, talkative person.
I started this blog to write my heart out and i wanted my views to reach others. But slowly and slowly following the etiquettes of the blogville......came the rules and propriety...and somewhere it turns a person into too much of a diplomat, whereas my whole life i have followed one thing strictly.....be genuine in whatever u say or do. Even in very trivial things also, i dont like to tell a lie..like whenever we go to someone's place for dinner, usual thanks would be something like that from everybody...oh the dinner was delicious, very tasty and blah blah, but for me...if i liked only one dish, I will appreciate that only and if i liked nothing, I would appreciate the efforts that hostess has put,.
last year I had taken a few resolutions and I feel I have followed them quite well, this time I would reiterate that...
I will follow the policy of no complaints...from people or life--in today's world complaining hardly gets u anything except in the govt. offices.....
acceptance and acknowledments of everything.
Be geuine , sorround yourself with the people who like u or whom u like, so that you have a positive aura all around.
Be happy with what you can do for your self and others, dont depend on others for your happiness.
Before saying or doing anything first chk----it doesnt hurt anybody, because I believe that anything which hurts anyone cant ever be good for u. Hurting anybody verbally or otherwise a strict no--no--in my book.
Be environment friendly..say no to plastic, consume less water and electricity.
Consume everything in lesser quantity.
Do something for less privileged.
These are a few commandments of mine, wish me good luck , so that i can follow them.

Hey Renu, here`s wishing you and your family a year of peace and happiness ahead!
What a fabulous post! Last night someone told me that I am never happy with anything and that I complain about everything and everyone. Now reading your post, I feel something tug at my inner being. I`ve finally made this year`s resolution - I will try and be content. I shall not complain. I love all your resolutions. And I thank you for helping me become a better person this year :) Hugs

Smriti said...

First off, that's a very inspiring quote Ma! Love it!

Being your "computer teacher" I can vouch that you've come a long long way when it comes to computer literacy and I feel so proud to see that you are always trying to learn new things in the blog land!

And here's wishing you all the best for your resolutions and I'm sure you'll be able to follow each and everyone of them.
