WHAT’S “NEW” THIS NEW YEAR

A year that was
came with the same aplomb
 as this new one
 months passed by 
mirth turned to melancholy 
resolutions - weren't that resolute
 they choked to death eventually.
 New Year's eve - a night of wild revelry
 flooded with greetings
 31st December to 1st January
 does change the calendar year
 the same old psychological drama
 what changes I ask.
  At the stroke of the midnight
  nothing magical happens
 what's "NEW" this NEW YEAR
 shall be determined by your attitude
 live a blessed life
 filled with gratitude.

GRATITUDE IN ATTITUDE

We as humans always have the longing to push our boundaries and strive for expansion in all walks of life. This is the most fundamental aspect of human beings that they have the conscious desire to reach out and explore newer dimensions of life. Nothing wrong with that at all but in doing so what’s the attitude like, is what defines an individual. People who practice gratitude in everything they do are the ones who are most admired and whatever they achieve seems to be more significant for the lives they touch through their acts. Being thankful for the little things in life goes on in making the life much larger and blissful.

The whole perception of looking at things changes once someone starts to be grateful for everything that this magnificent life has to offer. Well it’s not something that comes naturally but once someone starts to accept their fallacies and look at things just the way they are rather than trying to find fault with them, then gradually over a period of time the seed of gratitude starts to find expression. Once that happens life becomes less burdensome and more enjoyable. A sense of reverence sets in for this wonderful creation and the way you connect with everything around you changes drastically. Contempt and hatred for others starts waning and subsequently turns to love and respect. You learn to embrace life like never before and that in itself is a wonderful thing that can possibly happen to someone. By adopting GRATITUDE IN ATTITUDE you not only become thankful but also more receptive in life. It’s an experiential thing and once someone cultivates this quality then the fruits they get from it are very sweet. May you taste this sweetness that’s so apparent and abundant in life.
