Well, the year is not over. Almost two days left, which still holds the promise of so many joys and happy moments. But still, here is a quick rewind of some- definitely, not all the things that I learned.

  1. Do what you love. Life is short.
  2. Spend time with family. Make calls to family, call your grandmom, email your BFF. So what if we did not hear from them in a long time. Yes, do it, take the first step, even if it is only for a minute or just a line. We never know when loved ones will be snatched away.
  3. There is no age to have fun. And definitely not to stop having fun.
  4. Reading IS a wonderful habit. So, be sure to pass it on.
  5. Talk. Wish people a good morning or Happy Holidays. It is an excellent way to start a conversation with strangers and acquaintances. Who knows what might blossom?
  6. Never judge people. We do not know what their life and dilemmas are all about.
  7. There is ALWAYS a nice way of saying things.
  8. Yes, we all make mistakes. But saying sorry helps. It cannot undo anything but it can ease the hurt and pain we cause.
  9. ‘Me time’ is important. For Mommies and Daddies alike.
  10. Babies grow up too fast. Sure, there are days that drag and are simply too long; but the weeks just whizz by. And babies turn into toddlers and young girls and whoa… ready to fly the nest! And with that note, I am going to step away to cuddle ToddlerT. (now no longer my little BabyT! Sigh!)

Happy New Year! See you in 2015!!
