HAPPY NEW YEAR
So, are you still working on your 2011 New Year resolution? We all make promises to improve ourselves at the beginning of each New Year. It has become quite a part of our New Year celebration and 2012 is not going to be an exception.
Today is the last day of 2011, and I have never been really good at making resolutions and sticking to them…but this year, I plan to make certain changes in my life.
The beginning of every year brings in new hope and enthusiasm. We look forward to a new beginning and hope things to improve from the last year. We like to forget about our pasts and its daunting memories and wish for a new start.
A lot of people are guilty of one thing in life, and I admit that I am one of them, living in the past. This might apply differently to each and every person out there, but generally speaking, ranging right from the trivial little things right up to the terribly traumatic life changing events, we’ve all experienced it in some way.
I’ve been through some hellish times in my life, and for a long time afterwards I found myself time after time, day after day, sitting there doing nothing but replaying the memories in my mind over and over.
There’s a reason why people always say that one shouldn’t live in the past, because it doesn’t achieve anything at all.
After spending some crazy amount of wasting time looking back, I saw everyone else carrying on normally, and I was stagnant, not accomplishing anything; I had no goals, no real reason to live at all.
One day I just decided that I had had enough of doing nothing, and I set about setting goals and reaching them. First they were small things and later they led to big ones. True, no matter how hard I try, I can’t change the past, but I can make a better future for myself.
So, this is a promise to myself, to make the best use of the new life I have been given, give all my love to my wonderful family, friends and to the one special person, who taught me to trust and love again.
You cannot change the past, but you can make your present full of JOY, by learning from your mistakes done in past.
Wishing you all A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR…...May it be full of happiness and blessings.
