2017 in Review

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” – Neale Donald Walsh

This year reminds me of a very important lesson: The power of perception. If we change the way we see the world, we can change the world we see.

I had a lot of good memories this year. In a conscious effort to connect with people, I spent more quality time with family and relatives, reached out to old friends, and made some new acquaintances. Face-to-face interactions require more emotional involvement and cognitive effort; it is more interesting than virtual ones, and more than often, just as tiring.

I started the year doing something brave, and since then, I have been trying new things, combating fears and eliminating possibilities of what-ifs. I learn to ride a bike, experience snorkelling in an open sea, learn modern calligraphy, and start to incorporate inversions in my yoga practice. With a more mindful yoga practice, I become more aware with my thoughts, speech and actions.

In 2017, I reconnected with people, attended several beautiful weddings, became my close friend’s bridesmaid, travelled with friends and family, visited national heritages including the national mosque!

Here are 17 selected photos for the year:
