Take a wish



This is it! It’s just one more day to 2010. I remember sitting with my class mates in a quite coffee shop in Singapore on 31st dec 2008. No big party or fireworks. Just three friends hanging out, talking about each other’s life and everything under the sun err.. actually full moon. We were too engrossed in talking to notice the countdown that slipped away silently.

The year turned out to be like a roller coaster. Not just owing to its ups and downs but also to the underline fact that I chose to ride it. Knowing, all those twist and turns would shock and surprise me. Knowing, no matter how bumpy it may seem I would land safely. Knowing, my job is only to let loose, wave hands and enjoy the experience.

Let’s be like the child that’s thrown in the air by its mom, smiling, enjoying, and with complete trust that it would be received safely into her hands! Let’s welcome 2010 with belief, conviction and hope.

I have customised wish for you all, but there is a twist. I am going to let our close friend “Destiny” pick the best one for each of you. I have given 30 wishes, each one with very specific thought. You would be picking it up according to the order of your comment to this post.

So when you read this post, visit the comment section and see what’s your number, suppose if there are  two comments; then read the third wish written below. You have to copy paste it in the comment section and write your thoughts on that. If there are thirty comments, then read the first wish.

Here we go!

1. You are blessed. Everything is going to be alright. When the rain is pouring down it would seem heavy cold and messy, but remember rainbows appear only after rain. Everything is going to be alright. New Year is going to be all right!

2. No one has the right to tell you what you should or shouldn’t do, go by your heart, go by your feelings, for they never lie. Watch your diet and have an easy year ahead.


3. Abundance would fill your house in every way; all you need to do is let it do its job by clearing out unwanted stuff both from your mind and from your house. Make room for new in this New Year, Let energy flow!


4. Love should be unconditional and  less expectations. We are here to learn many things and the most important of them is love. Lessons may seem hard at times, but it’s worth taking it. Open up your heart to love and have a lovely year ahead.


5. Health is not just eating the right food it’s also having a right frame of mind. Calm yourself and let go of your worries. Peace of mind is the best wealth in the world.

6. Forgive freely and fully, for it help to get over what’s not best for your progress. Have a wonderful year ahead.


7. Learning something new would help to keep that spark, that’s deep down you, alive. For its soul’s longing to learn things. Have a hearty year ahead. God bless.


8. Remember the hot drink you had watching rain? That’s life; it’s not made of big achievements or financial success, its moments like these that matter most. You know what to do, have fun filled days ahead!


9. Cherish your relationships, at the end of the day we work only for that. Have a great year ahead.


10. Exercising, eating the right food and meditating would keep you away from health problems. We shouldn’t forget the basics. Have a healthy year ahead.


11. Angles are by your side and you should never forget that, guidance would always come, all you have to do is trust! Bless you.

12. Open your palms and read your lines, you are unique and your job is to protect the identity of who you truly are. Let life flow!


13. Words once spoken cannot be retracted, words can kill and they can heal as well. Let your lips carry only blessings for others, for you don’t know the power of them.  Have a year filled with abundance in every way.


14. Success is what you define it to be, and the journey is more important than the finish line. Have a successful year ahead.


15. What you are today is the collection of thoughts you had till this time. Choose your thoughts so it can define your future. Have a prosperous new year.


16. We can always use a holiday and there is nothing like many holidays. Life is to enjoy, relax and have fun!


17. Let go of resentment, guilty or any negative feeling you are holding on right now. It’s hard to swim with stones tied to your leg. Let them go and see how your life flourishes.

18. Believe in yourself, soon others would do too. You are much better than what you think you are, give yourself a chance! Have fulfilling year ahead.


19. Watch a sunrise and contemplate your thoughts! Things would settle by itself. Have a happy new year.


20. It’s very important to groom yourself well. Give only your best to others in every way, life would surprise you.  Have a fun filled year.


21. Music to ears, food to stomach is what love to soul. Walk the beach, smile and love like there is no tomorrow. Have a lovely year.


22. If it did not happen, it never meant to be. Accepting does not mean you failed, it means you are brave enough to see the reality. And what appears to be failure is not one in the future. Bless you.


23. Welcome! Gym is right around the corner, so stay fit! Have a healthy year ahead.


24. Keep writing, spend on yourself, call your old friend and take care of your favourite thing. Things may stay usual, but that’s a blessing! Have a blessed year ahead.


25. Freedom is important. Free yourself and free others. Have a free new year!


26. Magical world and reality is separated by a thin layer called dreams, the more you believe it, the more the layer shifts for you. Have a magical year ahead.


27. Read more, a thought read in a book can change your life. Happy New Year!


28. Get over it! Make yourself a tea and remember, if you can make your own tea you can do anything in your life. Have fulfilling days ahead.


29. Save money, save water and save your emotions for the right time. Have a peaceful year ahead.


30. God exists and your prayers would be answered duly, hold on to your thoughts and stay positive. Have a happy new year!


Ps: I am not psychic, although I believe psychic powers exist. This is purely for fun and just to see how much coincidence is god’s incident.  Pictures were taken during my visit to pual ubin island near Singapore.

3. "Abundance would fill your house in every way; all you need to do is let it do its job by clearing out unwanted stuff both from your mind and from your house. Make room for new in this New Year, Let energy flow!"

No one but you can write such a fabulous post for New Year's. This actually ties so very neatly with what I had written for closing out this year! We make room for good things, good people, good energy by clearing out all that is not needed!

Sri, I am glad that I stumbled upon your blog and you. You are a blessing in every possible and I am proud to be associated with you, even if it is in a small way!

I wish you a wonderful year ahead, fitted just for you and made better by your thoughts and deeds!
