“We spend January 1st walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives…not looking for flaws, but for potential.”
So here we are again blessed enough to breath in the air of 31st december. A long journey of 365 days and it feels like it has passed in just a glimpse. But if we think about tiny details of this whole year then we will realize that it is not only a year of a few days instead of, it is a time period in which we had different experiences. Experiences , which were simple yet they played a vital role in changing our lives, sometimes for better and other times we have learned from our mistakes.
New years celebration is a common event now. Almost every country spends a pile of money and resources to welcome new year. late night parties, family gatherings, feasting, gift exchange, fireworks and countdowns has become a tradition. Whole world welcome new year in their own ways with happiness and joy. Everyone raise his expectations with new year. It brings hope and light to their lives.
New years day generally means new year’s resolution. There is a trend of taking new year resolution. The new year inspires people to improve themselves in variety of ways. Some resolve to work for a healthier life style, some resolve to learn something new, other might resolve to improve their habits. According to a survey about 80% people take new year’s resolution but over 65% follow it till the first week of January and 35% prolong it till June. I think if there is anything one needs to change it doesn’t need a new year resolution to make it happen.
Days are passing, new things are happening in everyone’s life, you meet new people and leave some people behind. Just to match the pace of time everyone is trying to give its best. But one thing which we are losing each passing year is our satisfaction genes. May be this gene is inversely proportional to our age or the oxygen we are breathing is now polluted with greed and unjust. Whatever it is, the deterioration is fatal and worst part is we confidently justify fall of our moral values with lame excuses. Every other day we hear news about progress in technology and side by side crime rate is increasing humoungously. Problem lies in our way of thinking, we only live for today and forgetting that the ease we have today is the hard work of our forefathers. The question is what do we have to inherit our next generation.
I am sure if anyone make a film of all his deeds he will end up hating himself. Still we expect people to love us unconditionally, this is the injurious level of selfishness. We seriously need to mend our ways.
New year’s day, a fresh start, a new chapter in life waiting to be written.New questions to be asked, embraced and lives. Answers to be discovered and then lived in this transformation year of delight and self discovery. Today carve out a quiet interlude for yourself to dream. Only determination give birth to change.
happy New year world!
