Year after Year

It suddenly hit me that the year is about to come to an end...
This time of the year is normally when I sit down to think what have been the high points and low points of the year....
I don't exactly do this try accounting for the year that has, as usual, zoomed by... 
I do this because somewhere, it makes me identify, more clearly the people/things that count to me the most... moments that have clearly left a mark, and are now a part of me... 

Almost every year, most of the high points are contributed by my family... close friends... whom we often take for granted the most..
This year has also left a lot to seek... a healthier life for everyone... take a break from work more often... and some growth in work & family...

But in the middle of all this.. some highs & some lows... I feel that the year went by fine...
And hope that we have even better ones ahead of us...

Plan

All of us like to plan ahead... 
some to the closest instant, so for the distant future...

As humans, i guess we feel assured of a certain lifespan.. so we like to control, to the extent possible, what comes our way...

What we don't anticipate, is that it can all come tumbling down, with that instant of carelessness, or the sudden slamming of the brakes....
And then, it dawns... Thank God I am alive...

Maybe that helps respect the life we are living... every moment, every thought...
