Dear Colleagues

As I sit on my sofa on New Year’s eve writing this letter, I realised that this eve brings with it great reason to celebrate. While some people don’t celebrate Christmas, everyone celebrates a new year regardless of where they may be.

The start of a new year is a great time to celebrate the accomplishments we made in the previous year and to look forward to achieving more in the coming year. It’s a time to reflect and give thanks for the past year, celebrate small victories, make decisions to change, and embark on new beginnings and fresh starts. For many people, a new year presents the opportunity to start afresh, to make resolutions and to set new goals.

My goal for this year is to laugh more! Life is not always as fun as you would have wished and sometimes it sets you different challenges to test your courage. One of the best feelings in the world is the deep-rooted belly laugh. It can bring people together and establish amazing connections. Everything from a slight giggle to a side-splitting guffaw can change the temperature of a room
from chilly unfamiliarity to a warm family-like atmosphere.

Thus I plan to laugh!

I look forward to seeing all who can make it at our next CPD evening meeting on the 29th January.

Best wishes,

Urooj Khan
