2017 – Looking back and forward!

They say when a year passes by in the blink of an eye…it’s been super eventful! That’s how 2017 was for me – a bagful of happy and some bitter sweet memories. 

I cannot get over the zeal with which I made a New Year Resolution while taking an evening walk earlier this year (with a dear friend of mine), saying out loud that this year would be all about ME- focus on self, making myself a priority and investing in some serious self growth; AND I DID! So whoever doesn’t believe in resolutions must know that resolutions are all about “intent”. If your intent is pure and strong, you can move mountains. 😃. Ask me, I’ve turned my life around in 2017!

So I will stop jabbering on and head straight to the point! Here are some amazing memories I made in the year 2017-
