New Day

This New Year has many expectations pinned on to it, and rightly so. We have all had a very different 2020…stuff that weirdest fantasies are also not made of. So loaded with expectations that at times I feel bad for 2021..i mean reminds me of the pressure created before an exam.

Most of us, including the me missing my Sarojini Nagar visits, want to just want press the “play” button where there has been a BIG pause. Last year we got intimate with life’s uncertainties and this year we want to make hope our bedfellow. And rightly so. This hope found expression in and was so visible in the New Year greetings.

If I was to play a spoilsport my question will be, think… what changed other than the date and the day? It also made me reflect to think what if…we were to wake up to each day with this feeling of new ness. With creating intentions for the day (instead of resolutions for the year), with leaving behind the past in the past and just be present to the opportunities every new day promises us. What if we were to wake up filled with hope, a hope of better today. How will it change when we approach every days situations with hope, new vigor and intentions. What will be different in the way we will navigate through the day? What will it enable us to do and be more of?
