Choice, not luck.

I have precious memories attached with Trifecta Writing Challenge. This week , Trifecta is asking for our own resolutions in three words. So , standing at the rear point of this year ,I tried planning for one . I got two though – one caption and one gist . 

Wear many hats. 


*** On another note , from March , 2013  I stood behind the lens and captured a little world on this blog. This time I thought of keeping the face on the front page. Thank you for walking this journey with me!

  1. Hi Ivy , I love that quote. 🙂 That is so true , right? 🙂 Thank you so much for your amazing words. 🙂 That hat in the last pic is my most favorite , so it had to come on my blog. 🙂

  2. “Choice, not luck” reminded me of that great Thomas Jefferson quote: “I’m a greater believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it”.

    Lovely photos. I wish I could reach through the screen and steal the hat in the last pic. Adorable! 🙂

  3. Hi Tom, Thank you for the visit and your great comment. Yes, I agree , it’s an empowering solution and I will have to put hard work in everything ; sometimes , I may even seek inspiration in the outer world . But , I will be able to thank myself if my dedication brings result and blame myself if anything goes wrong.

    About versatility , without it , professional and personal life look very boring. I mean , I get energy from meaningful work , specially arts and stories.:) And apparently I have couple of hats that I love wearing. 2014 will add some more. 🙂 Thank you again for your wishes. A Happy New Year to you too. 🙂

  4. Choice, not luck, is a very empowering solution. Good for you for having the determination to be in charge of the decisions you make and not leaving Fate in charge. As for the hats, not every lady can wear a hat and look good but, you do that very well. Thanks for posting such lovely photos. As for the implication of that resolution, it is good to be versatile and being able to “wear many hats”. Happy New Year and best of luck making all of your dreams come true in 2014!

  7. Thank you very much, Jannat. 🙂 I completely agree with you ; I would love to see ” jack of all trades and master of everything ” kind of myself in this year 🙂 On another note , I love hats and there were so many pictures of me wearing different hats and I wanted to post all here . 😀 But , I had to stop being that much crazy here . 🙂

  13. I definitely agree! There was a time when I used to think about how people * do it all * ; but couple of surgeries , ER trips, lonely days on sofa made me fall in love with my hobbies again..Life is short and there are too many things to do , too many dreams to chase ; it takes hard work , craziness , but happily it is all about a CHOICE ! 😀 Thank you for all the support , Arka.:) Happy New Year !
