Aiming high in 2010.
So ok, while the New Year is technically a new beginning, because it's the start of a brand new year- we are still the same people we were hours before, during the previous year. We can't change our basic personalities nor our major flaws simply because the calendar changes.
On the face of it, it does seem pretty absurd and downright naive of us to even consider that a new year would usher in a new us. What we usually do instead is make a new year's resolution to make a better us. And the honest truth is, we make it because we hope, and hope is a precious and beautiful thing, right?
You see, we won't resolve to make changes if we are convinced that our life is basically over. That's why I am so happy Sid is making one because it only proves that he truly believe that his life isn't irrevocably set. He wants to make some changes in his routine because he believe, that he might, just might, be able to alter his life this year. I know Kirst wanted to quit smoking. It is a brave thing to hope and braver still to act on it. Me? I am going to make some drastic changes in my personal life. So please, be with me during this journey.
Well, the positive side of New Year's resolutions is the fact that they encourages me to reach higher goals, and to make the positive changes in my life and continue to grow in all aspects. Even if Christmas makes me sad, the prospect of the new year always lifts my spirit up. It never fail to give me a "New Year's hope" that I so excitedly grasp at before the New Year has even begun.
Hope indeed, makes what previously felt insurmountable suddenly seem attainable. So lets feed the hope, and support each one's resolution because we just might watch a resolution become reality.
So what is it you want to attain this year?
