Hi Everyone,

Happy 2016!!! This is my first post of the year and I can not start the same without thanking all of you for the immense love and support you have shown towards my blog. Your sweet comments have motivated me so much and trust me, it is not about the collaborations or the number game of viewership that keeps me going. It is the single most important fact that there is someone out there reading what I am writing and loving it enough to come back and read more. Thank you dear readers from 95 countries, I could not have asked more in these 6 months of starting my blogging journey.

I hope you are having a great start to this wonderful year, a year full of possibilities, a year of fulfilling dreams, a year of finding purpose and living it through. My wish for you today is that whatever battle you are fighting inside right now, may you win; may the struggle come to an end and you emerge stronger. May 2016 take you to new heights where you can conquer your fears, give up the dogma that you need to lead someone else’s life, listen to your heart, listen to that inner voice and be guided by what you feel is right. I wish you all that and more in this wonderful year that has just begun. Cheers to 2016!!
