Last day of a Year, for some it’s time to retrospect, for some to party, for some to make new resolutions and for some starting of a new beginning. For me, it’s just another day. (Just another day with lots of options to party 🙂 )
Seriously, what difference does it make? Be it 31st December or 31st of January or 31st of any other month. Why are we so obsessed with it? Specially when we all know, that nothing is gonna change. What drastic event would happen between this 31st December and 1st of January, that will make your life perfect? How is it that what you haven’t done this whole last year, will surprisingly be your motto for the next year?
Those who are going to make resolutions of getting in shape, will join the gym in January, will do exercise for ten to fifteen days, and then most of them will say, “We are so busy, it’s hard to take time out for exercise.”
Those who are planning to be more positive and be nice and good to others, will try hard, really hard (Yes, if you have to try to be nice, you will have to try really very hard. Believe me, you are just not wired to be nice). They will be nice till the moment they will see their arch enemy pretending to be nicer. 🙂
Those who are planning to learn new things, like learning a new craft or skill, most probably would leave the classes within two weeks. (unless, they have paid so heavily, that they want to extract every penny paid.)
I am not trying to be all pessimistic here, just wanted some realism to sync in. Be real, and understand one thing that you can not change yourself in a single day, just because that day is 1st of January. Yes, you can change in a single day, in fact sometimes, in a single moment, but in that case reason just won’t be a date, it would be something more, something worth a change. So, be Real.
Years come and go, we change every year, and every day. What our motto should be? To be that change every day. Don’t wait for a year. Don’t wait for a special day. Do it today. Learn it today. Act on it today.
Every year I am learning something new. Making new friends, meeting new people, seeing new places and doing something new. I am growing. (not in size, God, please don’t jinx that). I am growing as a person. (I am not growing another person too. Thank god, for that too. Three are enough for me. 😉 )
My hopes from 2014 are also the same. Let me learn, let me know, let me meet, let me seek, let me discover, let me grow. Let me be, Me.
