The New Year is important, we know it. But the last day is important as well. With this post I intend to share my views about the importance of last day.
Every measure of time brings with it the “Present” sandwiched between the “Past” and the “Future”. As we step into the present to move into the future, we must also thank the past, coz that has made us what we are today. Today exists only because of yesterday. The last day may seem like a saddening concept but it is not so when seen with a positive perspective.
I can still remember the last day in my school. It was end of my school life. It was end of my childish behaviour. It was end of my kiddish activities. But with that last day I stepped into the threshold of maturity. I was about to enter college life, ready to take more responsibilities, to embark upon a new journey where I would shape my career. I was about to face the real world. And all this was because of this last day. Surely I was leaving many things behind- familiar faces, the environment I had taken for granted, the care and love which childhood brings with it. It seemed like a great loss to me indeed, but there was a whole new world to explore and much more in store to gain.
Thank you to my Alma Mater for preparing me for the journey ahead.
The last day in my college. It meant much more than just the last day of college. It meant end of my regular classroom studies. No more teachers. No more classes. No more bunking. No more canteen. No more exams. No more proxies. Yes, I was sad on that day. But had it not been for that last day, I would not be where I am. It led me into the real life. A practical life was about to start. It was a transition from a dependant to an independent individual. I was about to gain status. I was about to be known by my name. This Last Day was as important as any other Last Day.
There are many last days that I have faced in past and there will be many more in future. Few depend on the occasion and few are recurring.
There is a last day in every week, every month, every year, every decade and so on….
We are about to enter a new year, leaving behind the old one. Think of all the Last Days in the year that’s gone by and be thankful for them. Each is important in its own way and no one knows it better than us ourselves.
Let’s move into the New Year but not without thanking the year that was...the “Last Days” that were.....
