I always believe that each year is always a good year. Though it is not always a smooth sailing journey, still I have many reasons to be grateful. And looking back this year, it has been a great and fantastic journey.
Mid this year I made a major detour in my career. It took me years to heap enough courage to ditch the job I loathed. First time in my life that I resigned from a job without any employment offers at hand.
It was a calculated risk though. We had a 3-months notice period and this provision was really a major obstruction to finding a new job. Companies are not just keen to wait such long. Thankfully before my 3 months notice period ended, I found a new job.
Work consumes like 70 – 80% of our time and energy. It defines the quality of life that we live. So when I left my previous job, it seemed that my life was totally overhauled.
Late this year my family travelled here in UAE. There were two reasons behind that – to celebrate my son’s first birthday and to have a family reunion. My brother who is working in Maldives came too.
It was the best gift and I cherished every moment we were together. We were glad to be together, just being around – talking, walking, teasing and eating together.
And of course, my son’s first birthday. I think as parents the most important thing is to know that your child is safe and in good health always. It makes me more grateful and richer everyday.
I am grateful that we are all in good health all year through.
I am thankful too –
For our jobs that help us support our needs and our family.
For the additional new member in our household
For my loving friends and kind colleagues
The list of things that I am grateful for 2012 is still long but I would rather keep it in private. One thing for sure – it has been a great 2012!
Happy New Year everyone!
