Losar Tashi Delek : Gratitude and small joys

Losar Tashi Delek! Happy Losar. We have just welcomed the new year on the lunar calendar back home in Bhutan. This year is the Year of the Female Water Snake – doesn’t that sound absolutely exotic and tons more thrilling than plain old 2013? :D Heh. Being away from home during what is one of the most festive times in the country ( and having no holiday here to speak of) can be rather dampening, but you can always look for small joys in the everyday things, and find little ways to celebrate :

Another year has gone by, leaving memories that are both good and bad in its wake. Another year that was filled with family, friends, new adventures and love. Thank you! To all the wonderful people that make up my life. And thank you, to you reading this post – I hope you go on to have a great year ahead.

Tashi Delek! xo
