#221 The Year in Review

The Year in Review

Year 2016 is making its preparation to leave. The time has come to bid a good bye to this year and welcome the upcoming year with a sense of optimism.  Before stepping into a new year, I want to reflect upon the lessons that 2016 has taught me or the gifts that it has offered me.

As per the academic curriculum In India, the beginning of the year expects every student to be sincere as it brings forth a series of exams to write. This year began with the similar note but the fortunate thing was that I got the chance to be at my home with my family. I got this chance almost after 18 months! I was lucky enough to receive the extra care and attention from my family during the peak time of exam. The session of writing competitive exams lingered on till June. I faced the situations of uncertainties and disappointments but the thought that ‘everything has a purpose in life’ kept my hopes alive. Thanks to my parents who were always there for lifting my spirit.

I’m currently pursuing Masters Degree in Power Electronics. The process of exploring life and facing the challenges is still on. By the end of July, I was at Indore- a completely new place for me, that I could have ever imagined about. New place-new challenges and blessings. Life at IGIT, Sarang had already made me adapted to any situation or surrounding. I did not face much trouble in adjusting with this new place. I came across wonderful people in form of friends, teachers, seniors and roommates. I am so satisfied to share that, whatever I wrote at Indore, got acknowledged readily. That may be the reason of the efforts that I put earlier in the field of writing. I tried to grab many opportunities in the field of writing.  Whenever I felt low, surprises at times made me smile.

I came across the book “The Secret” that gave me enough encouragement to look at the positive side of everything. I could come to know about something called “The law of attraction”- a law so profound. This year has taught me a very important lesson - What’s important in life is always going fine. If something is not going fine, then that thing has no importance in life. So, I am not the one that I used to be during the beginning of this year. Every challenging situation that I faced, urged me to be stronger than ever before.

This NEW YEAR will be a different one as I won’t be with my family but I expect it to be memorable! I look forward to wonderful memories in days to come. Last but not the least; I would like to thank everyone whom I came across as I got to learn many things from them.

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas!
