First and foremost allow me to wish each and everyone of you a Happy New Year.
As we kick start the New Year most of us are filled with aspirations and lots of promising thoughts that this will be a much better year than the previous one. We make promises to ourselves that this time around we will achieve our goals and correct our previous err.
We can’t help it but fall in love with the feeling of a New Year, for it revives the drive, goal and hopes of becoming a better person than we were. It’s surely a refreshing feeling to our beaten minds and it enthrones us with a sense of newly found energy to tackle any situation and obstacle. We find the will to dazzle and concur with the atmosphere surrounding us.
To most of us this is only temporary; all the positivity soon relinquishes leading us to wonder how did this happen? How did we end up just like the person we said goodbye to at the beginning of the year?
It makes one think of the New Year, what value does this concept of new beginnings represent if it’s inevitable that we’ll return to our old self? It appears we are simply creating a vicious cycle of having uncontainable expectations for the New Year of which the New Year never promised to fulfil. Perhaps we should live by (No expectations, No disappointments) but why succumb to negativity when there’s no hurt in having a little hope with a sprinkle of wishful thinking.
Wishing and hoping for a little bit of luck towards your direction can’t hurt anybody, as long as we compliment it with tireless work. We ought to embrace what we have and allow the New Year to enhance us towards improving where we can without taking ourselves for granted. Let the New Year take you fourth with the lessons of the previous year pushing you ahead towards success.
I would like to finish of by saying Happy New Year and all the best for the year, may your resolutions be fulfilled, hopes materialized, your dreams reached and goals accomplished. God Bless and Take Care.
