5 Reasons to be Excited for NEW YEAR!!


Happy NEW YEAR!!

2014 has finally come to an end and 2015 has come bringing new hopes and surprises wrapped for us.

Without saying much, here are 5 reasons you should be excited for New Year,

  1. New Years are a fresh start! Failures, heart breaks, disappointments, etc. kiss everything goodbye! You are stronger and more experienced, you have learned from your mistakes and from others mistakes, take control of your life because it is a new start, it is NEW YEAR!
  2. Resolutions. Well not pondering much on this one but this year you might, just might keep your resolution this year and not break it. What do you think? Is there a chance? 😛
  3. You should celebrate the fact that you survived another year like a fighter!
  4. New Year money! Receiving money is always exciting 😀 !
  5. New Years means Parties! So that is reason enough!

I hope you enjoyed!

Love & Peace :*

Thank You ❤

2014 is here!

Last year for everyone was full of happiness and sadness, some lost closed ones and the others greeted new members in the family. An year is a long time, we fight, we cry, we celebrate, we make bonds, we meet new people, etc. and then that year ends and another year comes bringing new hopes, new aspirations, etc. People make resolutions, some follow, some break them. People think of it as a new beginning and give a deep thought on what they have done and what they will do, they promise to change for good and promise to make a change. It basically gives a new hope and motivation to people who are sad and a new aim.

For me it is basically a hope to survive a hope that everything would be the way it was. 2013 has been a very weird year for me. The first half was really good while the second half was not that good. I CHANGED, I started hating myself, while I  used to love me. I don’t know how this happened but I am still fighting to love me again. I became depressed. I couldn’t even expect anyone to understand me because I couldn’t understand myself, I still don’t. I don’t know what I want! Hence, it was a very depressing stage for me. NEW YEAR has given me hope that yes this year would be different.

For everyone who is struggling with depression I would just say that this year would be different and a much happier one.

And next year’s words await another voice.”

A diya or an earthen lamp is synonymous to the festival of Deepavali or Diwali. But it is not just a mere earthen lamp it is much more.
The Diya symbolises knowledge. An ignorant person would often remain in dark and wouldn’t be able to keep a check on the events happening around him. It is only when he feels the need to gain some knowledge that he will realise the purpose of his existence. And hence in this case, a diya/jyot signifies the removal of ignorance through knowledge.
The oil in the diya represents the dirt (greed, jealousy, hatred, lust etc) that humans tend to nurture while the cotton wick is symbolic of the aatman (soul). So in order to attain enlightenment and unite with the Brahman (the supreme power), one must get rid of materialism. A diya emits light when the wick fuelled by oil burns.
