2 January 2016

In keeping with my personal tradition, I’m not making any New Year’s resolutions. I don’t think they’re dumb, but they don’t work for me. I so admire people who can make resolutions and stick to them. I can’t.

But this year, I have decided to make some goals. Yes, I know that sounds a lot like making resolutions. However, I’m seeing this on a much broader, long-term perspective. So it’s not something like “I will read more, eat healthy, etc”, it’s more like what I want to achieve this year in life and where my life is headed.

I realize that for the past couple of years, I’ve just been going with the flow, taking each day at a time. While that’s not always a bad thing, I feel like I want to evaluate my life a little and see if I can make difference by having some goals, long-term and short-term.

I think I stopped having goals and dreams, because I didn’t fulfil them when I wanted to. Then I just started to feel like I had failed. That’s not a good feeling to have at all. So I just gave up on having dreams. May be my dreams were unrealistic or may be life got in the way. But, this time, I want to plan out things I can achieve, even if it takes some time. Who knows, may be something good will come out of this….

  1. Hopefully, something great has come out of the first quarter of the year for you. I learned some valuable lessons in life, so far. Not everything that’s covered in sequins has value and not everything made of cotton is worthless and vice versa. I have learned to adjust my expectations relative to the realisation that at times I am working hard to impress some insignificant third parties. In that sense, I will never achieve anything of value (to them), because these external references lose meaning as the boundary markers are placed just a little bit further out of reach. xo

    1. I’m not too sure how things have turned out. Definitely not for the better. I’m overwhelmed with everything. I guess I’m just praying this passes. You’re right to adjust you’re expectations and I’m trying too. It’s still work in progress.
