Happy 2016!!!

2015 was a great year, it was meant to be a year where I challenge myself, and follow my heart. It was meant to be a year of discovering or rediscover myself. 2015 ended up being about all that and a lot more.

All in all it has been a great year and began with a little interview at Smart Indian Women and then I got my first BlogAdda Pick. After that it was getting featured on Indian Top Blogs and making that list. The highlight was getting Published on Huffington Post India, and that article being picked up by the Bombay times. I have been blogging for two years now and I am counting my blessings. Blogging conferences gave me a chance to interact with so many amazing people. Lastly my amazing readers, you have been so good and kind to me. Reading liking commenting and sharing my posts.

My most read posts of last year were:

2015 has taught me a lot of things, given me great mentors and the BAR. It is the year that taught me who and what is worth my effort. Relationships that mattered got strengthened and I welcomed new people into my life, who now have a permanent place there just because they are awesomest people ever. And I am glad to have found a place in their lives as well.

If I had to pick one word for 2015, it would be CHANGE.This year has also made me understand my limits, physical, mental and emotional. Quite a few limits have been tested, and I broke so many times. But now I know where my boundaries are, I know how to push them higher and what bar to raise.

As we close out this year and step into 2016, I want to take this moment and that everyone who touched my life, and made it better. As for what I want the next year to be about, it will be Freedom. My Word for 2016 is FREE. Free to be who ever I want and whatever I want, Freedom from all the negatives and negativity. Putting the lessons I learned in 2015 to work in 2016 is something I am going to try to follow.

So let me wish you all a very Happy New Year. Have a great 2016.

What are your goals for 2016? What do you plan to achieve?

PS: Something new coming on the blog soon. Any guesses what it could be?
