If you are among one who started this New Year with the Resolution of ‘Getting Healthy‘, but are still anxious of starting a new Dieting schedule; then read on….
Read my article – To Diet Or Not, which will not only guide you on how you should deal with Dieting ‘What should be your approach to Dieting and What you should eat?; but also will try to break the worst myth associated with it, of – “Dieting means Boring“.
New Year‘s first day….. A year has passed and suddenly I am looking at memories of last year with a different perspective. As if I am reliving each day of last year, today.
I am thinking about all the people I met last year. I am remembering those whom I have lost this past year. I am thinking about all those silly worries of last year, who no longer means to me anymore. I am thinking about those small changes I did in my life to make my life better. I am remembering this whole past year as if today is the day of judgment; of finding out what I did right and what wrong?
I am doing it since yesterday. Yeah, I know, I think too much.
Even when I was celebrating New Year, I was self evaluating myself for the events of past year.
Now, when I am writing about all of this, it made me realize that actually, my last year was perfect. Infact all the years were.
I am what I am, because of what my past have taught me. And I am happy with the result. I am happy with myself.
I am happy with what I am today.
I am happy with the quality of people who came into my life. I am also happy for the quantity of people who are no longer in my life. Seriously, my life is better without them. I am happy for the loved ones who have lost the journey of life, and are no longer with us; because somewhere they have taught us the true meaning and worth of life. I am satisfied that small things of life do irritate me. I got worried about silly things, means that I do notice all the small details and little happiness of life. I value them.
The thing that I am most happy about is that I did change myself. I did improve. I did small things that matters to me and people around me. I am happy because I have helped other. I am happy because I have accepted, where I was wrong. I am happy because I have learnt from my mistakes. I am happy for being myself.
What I want from this New Year is that – Make me a better person, than the one I was last year.
Grateful for everyone and everything, because Life is just Perfect.
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.
