Happy New Year

I’m not much of a new year’s resolution person, you know, so I really don’t know what to say here. It’s not like I can’t think of anything to say- there are in fact a thousand promises I could make to myself, like I’ll try to be a little more organized, I’ll try to follow a routine, I’ll try to do this 2nd Tuesday blog every month (because I did such a splendid job last year) and of course, the usual suspect, I’ll try and exercise regularly and get fitter. But I’d rather not because my new year’s resolutions tend to fizzle out as the year gets older.
That is not to say that I’m not going to try all those things I mentioned above, I shall of course try to update my blog and write and study and do all those things or rather I am already trying to do all those things but I would rather not call them resolutions- they are changes I have been attempting to make for several months now and I would rather not use January 1 as a marker of any kind. It kind of feels like I jinx, you know.
Instead what I do say is I’ll try to take this year as it comes, embrace the good, learn from the bad, and not lose faith at rejections and losses. I had a good year in 2011. Perhaps all my wishes didn’t come true, but I also got dreams I hadn’t dreamt realized. Therefore in 2012 I just want do the best I can with myself and take everything that comes. And just randomly, I’ll end with a quotation that I like:
“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” ― Rumi
And this blog, by the way, is part of the 2nd Tuesday Blog-hop.

  1. I'm not good with resolutions either - can manage goals as they rather say you are heading for them - did okay by doing that in 2011 so fingers crossed for us all in 2012

  2. Good post :) I agree it's so hard to make resolutions. I'm like Alberta I make a few goals and make steps to do to achieve them so I can see the progress and not get discouraged. In the end like you say we can only put our best foot forward for a great 2012 :) Thanks for being part of the blog hop!
