Happy New Year Essay in 500 Words #1
With 2021 approaching its end, we are all waiting enthusiastically for the arrival of the New Year, 2022. Looking back, we realize how this year was nothing less than a pandora box for all of us. We may not have had the best experiences of our lives but what matters is that we stood firm, and this calls for celebration.
New Year is the occasion to again believe in ourselves and never give up on our dreams, no matter what the circumstances. Now, is the time to sit back and recall our roller coaster journey of 2021. Yet again, the New Year is knocking at our door, and here’s to hoping that this new year does not only change the dates on our calendar but brings fulfilling new experiences.
Speaking of hopes and dreams, here is a short narration of a boy whose life took a tragic turn, yet he chose not to give up on his dreams. Since his childhood, Raghav aspired to write a novel. His mind always lingered on thoughts like to live forever in everyone’s mind. When he passed his school, he decided to dedicate all his time to writing the Novel. However, as the pandemic hit the world, things were no more the same for him. He lost his parents. This was a massive kick down the road as his suffering was inevitable. However, he never actually stopped hoping for good days, and it made him believe in his dreams again.
As months passed by, he was all set to publish his novel. A small publishing company agreed to help him on terms. The Novel was released on an online platform, and the response for it was gigantic. His Novel made decent money. However, what mattered to him was that he finally made his dream come true despite facing many limitations along the way. His Novel was loved by many, and he impacted the lives of many others like him.
Raghav’s story may not seem significant in terms of material benefits, which all of us think is relevant, but it does tell us to keep moving and remain consistent. Unfortunate things happen, and we sometimes think of it as the end of the world, but what makes the difference is being strong in such times.
Evidently, this New Year comes with a lesson that things do change just like the dates on our calendar. And it is only us who can choose to work and make the best of it.
Let us all welcome this year by making a new year resolution. A resolution to be consistent and optimistic in our lives. Let us write a note to your future self and pat ourselves on the back for coming this far.
Whatever we call the year 2021 – A pandemic year, the darkest hour, or a beautiful morning. Let us bid adieu to this bittersweet year with a lot of gratitude.
The countdown has already begun. In a few hours, we will all welcome the Year 2022. Let us all hope that this year brings peace and happiness all around the world. May our lives get better, and we achieve our dreams and goals.
Happy New Year to All.
