Personal Audit – My Year in review

December 20, 2016
year in review

Hey, WAIT! Do not go by the caption….Its not about Finance but my year in review.

I am not keeping up the resolutions this time too. They doesn’t work- at least not for me.

That is why I made not to do list at the start of this year.

Honestly, I did not polished off all but at least followed 60% of them.


Did you had any resolutions for this year? I have a huge respect for those who manage to follow them.

No matter how hard this year treated me, it polished me and prepared me for the years to come.

I have grown up as a person. I realized that I need to look at Life through some different angle. Why? Because the way I was looking at things was not right, for sure.

I was expecting too much from People without knowing if they are capable to do so or not.

It was the worst year of my Life.

“Seriously?” you ask me. Yes, it was but when viewed from wrong angle.

But I budged and when I again look at the year in review:

It became was the best year of my Life.

Those situations were necessary for me. I am sure otherwise they would not have come my way. God must have some plan- A BIG PLAN which is not revealed to me yet.

God was testing me to check how far I have learned in all those years. Was I a Winner or a Loser? Any guesses.


I became a Seeker with-



In the quench to understand Life more, I started exploring. Reading was the best thing that happened to me.

Knowing your weak points and working on them gives a sense of delight.



Learning without practical holds no value. God gave me the liberty to apply my learning.

I, alone could not do this. Everyone needs someone to conduct experiments on- I had my Loved ones. I am glad I have them as otherwise how would I be able to experience the change in me.

They made me realize that I can be more patient, more thoughtful, more kind and more loving.



I learned to forgive myself for the wrongs I did. With this, I also learned to forgive others. Its like coming full circle- starting from myself and ended with my Loved ones.

Only your Loved ones had the capability to hurt you. You cannot be hurt by Strangers- because you don’t have any expectations from them.

Its easy to forgive the ones you love but its more easy to forgive the ones who love you.



I am becoming the lover of Silence. It helps me to learn about myself more.

No matter how busy my day is, I manage to spare few minutes of silence. I prefer early morning, before my Kid wakes up. It relaxes my mind.



I indulged in Self-Love. I started following my heart and my passion.

I did not kill my dreams. Nor, I expect my Kiddo to follow my unfulfilled dreams. I have my own and I will work on them.

My Status being a Wife or Mother shall not dampen my spirit.


Please share and pin it-

new year

Share your year in review- May be I learn something new from you.

    Love your words about experiences polishing and preparing you! Even if life deals you an awful hand, I do believe there is always something to learn from it. Sounds like you have turned ‘stones into diamonds’ (as the saying goes) this year. I hope your 2017 continues your journey of following your heart. x

    A lover of silence. I always have been. Too many of us never learn to be. May you have a happy and successful 2017.
