2015 was an incredible year with a perfect mix of all the ingredients of an ordinary life. This year taught me:
· To find beauty in the mundane.
· To appreciate the ordinariness in me and others. Realized that accepting and appreciating the very ordinary and not-so-special aspects of myself is as important as being proud of what I consider special about myself. Further realized the gulf between realization and appreciation. Well, let’s just say it’s a work in progress.
· Push the boundaries of my inhibitions. Tried out some really cool things which I’ve never done before. Happy with the effort. Content enough to move on.
· Never take anything for granted. Lost my grandmother while I was on a trek in Kashmir with no cell phone connectivity. Rediscovered her presence in my thoughts and prayers, constantly guiding and wishing me well in everything I do.
