I didnt want to put up a Blast from the Past as I start the New Year, but I also wanted a recap of all the things that did happen in 2012 and get it done with.
So, 2012 as a whole wasnt a Happy Year for me.Some things that happened early on in January and some things got carried forward from the previous year and came to light only as 2012 started-all led to me being unhappy and stressed.And it kind of kept hammering at me all the time, pecking at the back of my head. I did think of councelling and stuff but nothing seemed to materialise and I was so dejected to even put an effort into things. I ran away with friends for a couple of days hoping to cope better which actually didnt resolve anything. By the end of the year, I hope I’ve come to terms with some of it and I think I wont get depressed as badly atleast, if things surface again. Which is why Im determined to focus on being happy like I mentioned in the previous post.
Now that the sad part is over – this year did have quite a few very Happy Pockets 🙂
Europe trip being the biggest. I had given up on this trip and was ready to cancel when Mom adviced me to not be a fool and just go ‘Do It’ because she knew how much I have dreamed about the trip. She also thought (partially right) that it would help me mentally and emotionally. And Boy! What a dream come true it was 🙂 I can live so many more years in that memory and now want to take Chutku too sometime…
A Recluse and uncertain blogger, I began to comment more on posts (Huge thanks to RM) and the best part was meeting so many blogger friends- that too at my home! It was a huge personal happiness for me-that didnt have anything to do with me being a wife/mother/daughter/DIL – know what I mean? I met people who know me for ‘me’.
An opportunity in the form of cousin’s wedding pushed me to get a bit creative-and I realised suddenly how much I was missing getting my hands dirty with paints and glue. Enjoyed the occasion to the hilt.
And December has truely been Awesome – Work related trip to Hyderabad – not only helped me overcome my stage fright and talk in front of a 75+ crowd, it also added a nice ring to my resume’ at work. Personally too – I realised I could leave the kiddo at home and not worry as long as my parents are around 🙂 and best of all – meeting SnS 🙂 (Yeah, that would be a post of its own).
So, as the year 2012 passed-it got better. And I hope 2013 would rock!
