Happy new year to you.
It's 2009 already and yes,we are older and perhaps wiser. For some people new year is just another set of calendar but to me it's a chance to repair mangled relationship,polishing ourselves,starting on a new project and so on... In short I see new year as a whole new book ready to be scribbled on,making flow chart of your intended activity for the rest of the year.
So how do we start fresh for new year when the past is still pulling and holding us back? Well,we need some determination to move on and enough ignorance not to let the past year's flaw affecting our new year resolution. Some incident might be ugly to remember so forget it. If it happens again find a better approach to solve it. And do forgive,though maybe hard to forget.
If ever there is a chance to improve yourself,never hesitate,grab it. Love yourself,love the people around you. When somebody decided to become your enemy,laugh at it and call them friend. There will be temptation,pull enough courage to resist. When it comes to making a decision take time to analyze,rely on your rational thinking where your heart goes emotional. Make yourself a stronger person,think positively most of the time but never forget the world isn't Heaven.
For those who have conflict inside yourself,consult the best person you can find. Their advise will be bitter and hard to swallow but hey!that's how medicine taste like. Your many friends might say you are OK and bring you to party on but those who love you will tell "you look like you just woke up in hell!". Who doesn't have problems? Poor people worry about how to make money,rich people at wits end thinking how to make more money. Lonely people looking for love,loved people get so content they wonder if they're loved enough. Now don't stress out your brain,pain and sorrow tell us we're alive. Dead people have no worries.
So let us trade in the crooked past year for a fresh new year. Go back to the people who really care about you. And finally,like I always tell my loved ones;"only follow your heart when your brain isn't working".
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2009!
