reflecting 2011

Here is my reflection for 2011 and resolutions for 2012. Just a thought: A few days back, I watched New Year's Eve. I thought its quite a nice movie, the speech by Claire Morgan (played by Hilary Swank) really touched me and very meaningful. Other than partying all night, wishing each other "Happy New Year", indulging in yummy food, what are you going to do to strive better for the coming new year? I'll leave you with the speech quoted from the movie. (For your info: This was made when the giant ball, a project Claire has been working on, big decoration for the event at Times Square NY was stuck mid air).

"It's suspended there to remind us before we pop the champagne and celebrate the new year, to stop and reflect on the year that has gone by. To remember both our triumphs and our missteps, our promises made and broken. The times we opened ourselves up to great adventures or closed ourselves down for fear of getting hurt cause that is what new years is all about - getting another chance. A chance to forgive, to do better, to do more, to give more, to love more. And stop worrying about what if and start embracing what would be. So when that ball drops at midnight and it will drop, let's remember to be nice to each other, kind to each other. And not just tonight but all year long."

Happy 2012 everyone! God bless!
