2015 – the Year that Was….

January 1st 2015 to 31st December 2015- where did the time go? As I sit and write this at 11.00 pm on 31st December 2015, I am acutely aware of the fact that 2015 is getting over in 50 minutes.

2015 was a good year in many ways. Life, as we know is a mix of joy and sorrow, excitement and routine, and positive and negative. But then hey, I have decided to focus on the positive…but everything has 2 sides. And at the end of the day, it is better to think of happy memories.

So in a nutshell, here are the high points of 2015 – the year that was

Thathi’s 100th birthday – my dear dear grandmother turned 100 this January and there was a grand get together in Chennai. I think we are one of the few families who genuinely love each other and really get along. What a wonderful celebration it was.

In April, we moved back to Mumbai. Yes, we were not very happy about it. Bangalore was wonderful, a lovely home, lovely weather, independent life…and so much for the kids to do. But Mumbai is good too. so many opportunities. I git back to my fitness classes.

We got admission for Abhinav and Kaamya in Manecjee Cooper- one of the best schools in Mumbai….

I got back to work in May. I may not be doing great, or earning the highest..but i am happy with what I am doing. Best of all, I love to get dressed and go to work. I got an increment more than what was promised and I am elated.

I n September, I joined the Lokhandwala Running Club- a challenge to run to prepare for the SCMM. I always wanted to run…but never did it…now I do..I can. I love running. I can run upto 10k. One of the biggest goals in 2016 will be to be more physically active. I know now it’s possible. I know now I CAN do it. This has been truly one of my personal high points in 2015.

Another high point of course is Anand’s new job. I am so happy for him. He is moving into a leadership role, will have people under him..and so forth…

Kids growing up..Abhinav in football, Kaamya in guitar and music…

2 lovely mini breaks – Prakruti Resorts in August and Mahabaleshwar in December.

A rocking house New years Eve bash…

My cup runneth over…I have had the best year ever and I know 2016 will be super awesome…

love to all, especially family – mom, dad, P, R. Amma, Appa, M ….

This is me signing off.
