The year gone by has taught us all a few important lessons. No doubt, there have been ups and downs. Good times and bad. But we’ve all learnt to look up. Smile through it all. And take our resolution to make our lives meaningful very seriously.
At the cusp of the new year, I have immense gratitude and thankfulness in my heart for the enriching experiences of 2018.
Reminiscing now I think back at how I began the year with the launch of my eBook “Life Hacks For Achieving Total Inner Calm”. Not only was the book well received, I got numerous commendations and pats on my back for sharing my journey so openly and honestly.
Then, there were the programs I ran – “Tiny Steps To A Healthier You” and the “Cleanse”. It was motivating to see so many of you join in the revolution and take that crucial step towards better health. The outcomes were easy to see in the words of those who participated and their glowing testimonials.
I grew every step of the way. From the 47 articles I wrote and published on my blog, to the 62 healthy recipes I cooked and shared with you on my FB Live channel. I connected with a community of healthcare professionals and gave talks on the subject of health and wellness. And I studied hard and succeeded to certify as a Functional Medicine Health Coach and expert.
I got a chance to work with some of you through your issues and in the course of our interaction, grew closer to you. I have never felt more inspired by the strength and spirit you have shown, even under the most unnerving of circumstances. Together we were able to make a difference and beat ill-health.
So, in keeping with the year that has proved to be monumental, in this week’s blog post I share some inspiring quotes with you. May these quotes uplift you and help you find positivity and hope.
“Never search your happiness in others, it will make you feel alone. Search it in yourself, you will feel happy even when you are left alone.”
“Before going to sleep every night, forgive everyone and sleep with a clean heart.”
“Don’t ever feel bad for making a decision that upsets other people. You are not responsible for their happiness. You are responsible for your happiness.”
“Forgive people in your life, even those who are not sorry for their actions. Holding on to anger only hurts you, not them.”
“There will always be a reason why you meet people. Either you need them to change your life, or you’re the one that will change theirs.”
“Happy are those who take life day by day, complain very little, and are thankful for the little things in life.”
“Be grateful for every second of every day that you get to spend with the people you love. Life is so very precious.”
“Before you speak, let your words pass through three gates: “is it true?”, “is it necessary?” and “is it kind?”
“Gold and silver are hidden deep under the Earth. Pearl and coral are deep under the sea. But peace and joy are hidden in our mind and soul. Stop searching for them outside.”
“Take time to be thankful for everything that you have. You can always have more, but you could also have less.”
Bonus: “In the end, only 3 things matter: How much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.”
Here’s wishing you all a very Happy New Year.
In Health & Calm,
