Mihika Varma’s inspiring post on starting afresh is the motivation you need for 2017!

Actor Mihika Varma who is best known for her stint in Yeh Hai Mohabbatein surprised her fans when she got married in May and shifted to the US. She tied the knot with Anand, an NRI.

Her Instagram is now filled with adorable pictures of the happy couple. In one of her recent snaps, to celebrate 2K17, Mihika shared a collage of the two skiing and looking oh-so-in-love. This is their first New Year together as a married couple.

Happpppppppyyyyy New year😃😃I spent the first morning of 2017 skiing. Unlike my #patidev I fell almost every time I tried to come down the slope…and every time I'd fall the trainer would scream GOOD JOB!!!! After my 3rd fall I screamed back and said "how does this fall mean I did a good job?" To which he said "every time u fell u laughed out loud and got up again" – so that's my first lesson of 2017 -its absolutely okay to fall/fail as long u smile n get up again! After seeing a few highs in the last few years of my professional life, I took a very big step by dropping it all and moving continents! I'm sure to a lot of people it seemed thoughtless and unplanned but I have just smiled and laughed through it! There were times I felt "Oh! I have to struggle again and restart my professional journey! How am I going to do it?" Questions like what will I do? What if I fail?Aren't I too old to restart?consumed me. The path ahead seemed foggy.But my main struggle still is grappling with "fear of failure". Coming out my comfort zone has not been easy. But I will try and try and try and try till my fear gives up in the face of my optimism. So 2017 bring it on!!! Challenge me😉Everytime u make me fall I will laugh harder and get up.

Apart from the cute picture, what stuck with us the most was her inspiring message:

Her message reads as, “Happpppppppyyyyy New year I spent the first morning of 2017 skiing.
