And Then There Was 2011

A long break and I’m back (not my best piece of writing but getting back from a writer’s block is never easy) There is so much I want to tell you all, but all in good time.

A beautiful song by Jason Mraz urged me to write some of what has been on my mind.

Here’s wishing everyone a year full of love and light. As for my own self (as will be obvious from the post below) I hope I embrace the beautiful changes 2010 bought me, I pray I am able to take a few more leaps of faith and I urge life to surprise me more and more…

Before the cool done run out
I'll be giving it my bestest
And nothing's going to stop me but divine intervention
I reckon it's again my turn to win some or learn some…..

We grow, we evolve and we learn. We change, we progress and we discover. Looking back at the year that has gone by (and this post comes way after the New Year frenzy is over) it certainly was a year for change, just as it had promised.

In overt as well as subtle ways came changes directly or indirectly altering my life. Today on the onset of another journey, another year I couldn’t have asked for more.

I start this year with so much more assurance, affirmation and normality. I enter this year with love and happiness. I begin the journey into the next 365 days with a vow to embrace the beautiful changes 2010 bought me.

Well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you're free
Look into your heart and you'll find love love love love
Listen to the music of the moment babay sing with me
I love peace for melody
And It's our God-forsaken right to be loved love loved love loved

Often when we love we give so much of our selves to other people, we are drained eventually of our own soul. It is hard but not impossible to get yourself back. It is harder though to keep it that way and worse still to step into even loving again.
Therefore, sometimes you need to take a step back, guard yourself and be in your own company in order to value yourself again. It is then that you look inside and realize all the love of the universe is right there with you.

So one fine day you rise up and demand from the universe your inherent right to be loved.
And slowly, somehow love from everywhere creeps in, just when you don’t need it.

So I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait I'm sure
There's no need to complicate
Our time is short
This is our fate, I'm yours

You reach a point where you need to surrender and take a leap of faith….. And when you are full of assurance within, it is so much easier…and you do.

I've been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror
And bending over backwards just to try to see it clearer
But my breath fogged up the glass
And so I drew a new face and laughed

I spent a half of the year fighting with myself and the other half trying to find peace within and when I found it everything seemed apt, set and meant to be. So I smiled and decided to move on ….

I guess what I'm be saying is there ain't no better reason
To rid yourself of vanity and just go with the seasons
It's what we aim to do
Our name is our virtue

What I learned in a short span of the last 365 days is that there is no use in planning where and how you want things in life, yes it is right to strive for your dreams but sometimes you need to let life take over… let it drift you along …

If things were according to plan there wouldn’t be a Dubai, new friends and a new home.

Therefore ….

But I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait I'm sure…..

With Love and Light,

P.S. Listen to this awesome song here....
