New Year Wishes

I usually append my New year wishes to my readers at the end of my 'Year That Will Be' post. This time, it was scribbled in a hurry, and I left it out..


And here goes my new year wishes to all my dear readers !

I gave more of myself to family than I ever thought capable of - and still was occasionally branded as selfish...

(that's the biggest disservice ever done to women - pseudo appreciation before killing their dreams :(.
