New year...Already??

Yup! That was my reaction when I realized that New Year was just a few days away. I could'nt believe time could deceit me like this. It was just yesterday when I was sending out hate mails to a few people I (obviously) hate, enrolling myself in courses I knew I would never take seriously, reading books I'd hardly ever finish- being busy with things I had planned. And all of a sudden, I found myself waking up on a sunny morning of '09

I like to make my entry into the new year very proper. This time, it caught me by surprise.

What does the new year mean to me? The answer eludes me this time. Sometime back, I had written about the existence of a glass wall between two parts of our being- who we are and who we really want to be. The thickness of the glass depends on how badly we want to go over to the other side. I had also observed that my glass wall was pretty thick. This year, therefore, I plan to break into the other side. Live like I always imagined myself living. Know for certain whether or not I'll like it.

This will be my mantra for this year. Doing everything I did not do till now. It's going to be tough. But who cares? In the end, no one really bothers whether you won, lost or even took part. It's only you who will remember what really happened and that is what will matter the most.

I end with my last year's resolution (excellently summed up by Agate) which I plan to take with me this year too.

" New Year's Resolution: To tolerate fools more gladly, provided this does not encourage them to take more of my time"- James Agate

Keep shining your light on everyone. Who knows, it might come back you in your darkest hour.
