Do you feel that in the brandnew year that you should stick to some goals? Do you feel that you should stick to those resolutions somehow? Do you feel pressured? If so, just don't force yourself. Take it as it comes. Life is never all pinned up. Things happen...things that are beyond our control. So, don't be too hard on yourself. Have a rough sketch of what you want out of this year but don't die over it. Just be. Go with the flow. For I believe in Life goals...not in just yearly goals. If in general, you are positive, hopeful, peaceful, loving, caring, sensitive of others' feelings, courageous, up for anything, then you really don't have to TRY to change much. Things will happen as it should...you just have to adapt and grow from them.
Thanking My Stars!
Up until the beginning of year 2003 I was living in a rule-driven life. I was a perfectionist (still am a bit :)). I wanted everything my way. I set goals, I achieved them all, I had more and more plans, and plans and plans. I was so sure I will achieve them all cos I have nailed them all so far. But, something happened in March 2003...something that I never dreamt of...never ever imagined would happen to me. Suddenly my neatly pinned up resolutions-list seemed so out of reach. Something that I never expected had just taken place in my life that messed up all my future plans. Now, was this in my resolutions list? NO. Cos it just happened...and it was beyond my control, and nothing could have ever stopped it from happening. Basically, it was written in the stars...but I'm thankful for both the good and the bad totally-unexpected experiences in my life, for it's them that has made me the person that I am today.
Stardust Sprinkles Itself On You...
Yes folks, some things that happen to us and our loved-ones are written in the stars...I believe in it. So just go with the flow, don't be too hard on yourselves and on others. If you can't live up to some of your NY resolutions later on in the year, it's ok. We are only human and some things just happen. Sometimes we are stupid, sometimes we fail and sometimes things don't go as planned...cos some things are just not meant to be. And that's really ok...we have to learn to accept life as it comes to us...then you're a winner by default. So, just enjoy life, give out the best in you to the world and you shall receive the best in return. After all, life is like eating an ice-cream...the messier you get trying to eat it, the more you have enjoyed, tasted and LIVED it. :)
