Signing off 2015

“Some goodbyes mark new beginnings.”

As the sun of 2015 sets and the eve of new year 2016 creeps in, I feel fortunate for this year of learning. This year has given me a lot and also snatched away somethings from me, for which I hold no remorse. The biggest thing which I have gained this year is myself. I have come in terms with my fears and discovered my dreams. I have learned to forgive and love unconditionally. I have gracefully evolved and been shaped into the person I am today by the little lessons life has managed to teach me throughout this year. At times, life was unfair; only to teach me how much hope and faith mean in the darkness. At times life gave me pain, only to put me in the shoes of the ones I hurt, so as to make me more kind and compassionate. I have been showered with love, support and encouragement right from my family and friends to my blogging community. I wish to become like a mirror reflecting and giving back much more love, light and peace I have been fortunate to receive.

2016 holds high hopes, dreams and ambitions for me and you. I will pray for your success and happiness as dearly as I do for mine. Keep me in your prayers. Hugs, love and prayers to you πŸ™‚

  1. Hi Himali – You will be into 2016 well before us so, if you see anything that we should know about, please tell us! πŸ™‚

    It has been a pleasure reading your comments and generally learning little bits about you this past year. Yes, life can seem unfair at times but, really, fairness has very little to do with anything except to offer opportunities to learn and move on.

    As I have quoted on a number of blogs “I cried because I had no shoes, until I met a man who had no feet.” There is always somebody worse off than you and I.

    Another relevant quote is “God’s gift to us is our life. Our gift to God is what we do with it.”

    Have an incredible 2016 and make God proud of you (and us happy too!). Take care. πŸ™‚

  2. A beautiful gift of a final 2015 post, and what an honest open rΓ©sumΓ© of what this year has brought. What lovely words…always a pleasure to read them. Apologies for having been away from August to December…I found it hard to garden and be creative at the same time…tiredness overtook me a lot of the time. Indeed it has been a roller coaster of a year, for me also. You sound so upbeat and positive and I draw so much inspiration from your writings! I look forward to catching up with you again properly in 2016…and wish you, health, happiness, laughter, love and much inspiration during this New Year and many more to come. Take care, Krysia. πŸ™‚ xx

  3. Happy new year Himali may the loving bond with your brother continues and every moment of 2016 bring smiles in your life.


  4. Hello Himali.. and Happy New year to you..
    still before 6 pm here..
    last year.. and into
    Next year for
    you there
    in India
    at 4 to 5
    or so..
    i wear a watch
    Nike GPS style
    for distance but
    rarely check the
    time.. truly it is the
    distance that counts
    no longer when
    the hand
    strikes time..
    sidewalks and
    clocks.. two killers
    of dreams my
    friend.. also
    known as
    where only
    distance and
    space exists
    and now is all
    n zero w
    n 0 w
    iS.. real..
    and space becomes free as us and we..:)


  5. This reminds me of the quote: “That which does not kill us makes us stronger.

    2016 sure is going to be a great year for you, trust me. My best wishes to you.


    • Hello Dear Zee,
      Firstly thank you so much for your lovely wishes and I too pray to the almighty to bestow you with abundant love, joy and success. Secondly, apologies for late reply. I had been on a vacation 😊
      Hope you’re doing good, hugs πŸ’•


  6. Hi Himali. Wonderful reflection on the year past, my friend. I had a wonderful 2015. It went by in a blink. I have great expectations for this year as well. We’ll see how it unfolds.
    Blessings to you, sweet friend.
    πŸ™‚ ❀


  7. This is a Beautiful post, my Dear Himali! Thank You for sharing all those thoughts, and the Love and Wishes. The Same to You too.

    Am seeing this post so late, because, according to my custom, I go through the posts of EACH of my Blogging community family one by one, and having more than 200 of them, it takes quite a while to visit!

    Love and Regards. πŸ™‚
