Counting blessings in 2013 !!

Today on the New Year’s Eve when the world is celebrating the end of the current year and the beginning of the new year in clubs, discos and lavish parties. I opted to sit at home and reflect on the blessings I received in 2013. The year passed in the blink of an eye but for me during that blink numerous things happened for which I am really thankful to GOD.

2013 brought me amazing travel experiences during my four international trips to Poland, Czech Republic and  Germany (twice). I achieved one of my biggest academic achievements till now in the form of a paper published in Nature Chemical Biology. I along with the other 3 members established regional student group in the United Kingdom for the Student Council, International Society for Computational Biology. Presented my first oral talk in a conference at EMBL, Heidelberg and managed to win 3 travel grants for attending conferences.

My blessings were not only in my professional life but also in my personal life. I made amazing new friends, found a partner and revived some of my hobbies which faded in the past. I attended more parties, leaving dos and get-together than ever. Now today when I take a helicopter view and look at the wheel of my life then I can see its quite balanced and I praise the Lord for it.
