New year’s resolutions..
New Year’s Resolution- A New Year’s resolution is a commitment that a person makes to one or more personal goals, projects, or the reforming of a habit.
It’s that time of the year when everyone makes resolutions and mostly never keeps them. So, I thought why not give it a try and I’m an expert at failure after all, so here we go –
To suck at things –
I have decided to blog once every week, so if you’re annoyed with my blogs already now’s the time to unsubscribe from my facebook and blog feed. I know I’m going to suck at it but I’m going to do it anyway and give myself the permission to suck. Importantly, I should (mostly) enjoy doing it and feel of value and achievement.
It’s a thing that keeps me sane, puts my day dreaming to work and helps me from not going completely useless. And, I would be lying if I don’t feel good when there’s adulation or even better when some of the more technical things have helped people. It’s a lesson I learned from playing angry birds, you can easily get past the levels but to get those damned three stars you have to play it over and over again. So, I ‘m going to suck at blogging this year.
To be self-centered and cynical –
There is some sense of moral goodness in me which finds happiness when I help people. I don’t know why, but it feels good; there is something about kindness and generosity that connects with me and probably with everyone. I think it’s just disappointing when you expect and people choose not to reciprocate or most of the times just show apathy towards society. But, you can’t change people, you can only change yourself, be cynical.
I would like to change myself; be more aware and active towards society, I want to help out, volunteer, encourage in my own ways. I’m no social activist, and from some past experiences it can be tiring and unrewarding. But I do feel the need to be more responsible, also I feel fortunate to have things I have and want to help those who are less fortunate or in need. More importantly though, I’m self-centered and I want to feel good about myself. For concreteness, I have decided to do volunteer once every month for a helping/charity event.
To be a bookworm–
There’s certain part of me that died some time before that used to like reading. Now, my new kindle paperwhite is collecting dust. I enjoy watching movies much more, who wants to spend hours and hours finishing those damn books. But, from what little I can understand and remember when I have invested in reading books, it’s been as much enjoyable as anything else if not more. There is a certain laborious nature about it but ultimately it feels more rewarding, also from what I read apparently it improves your memory and has other benefits.
Regardless though, I have decided to read more books this year. I don’t know how I’m going to do it, especially with amount of movies and television I watch. And when I can’t read two lines before travelling into wonderlands and alternate realities or fighting the war against aliens or delivering speech for winning the Oscar for best actor/writer/director. I know so random but that’s me and I’m an all-rounder. The way I have decided is reading something every other night before bed. And I have lots to read, starting with the brief history of time.
Now, honestly this might all seem a bit silly and it might as well be, but I am unfortunately constantly in need for inspiration and motivation and this might provide some of it. And, I am going to do my best to keep these resolutions, I may not succeed but either way I am going to make an honest attempt and that’s the point of it.
In any case there’s nothing to lose, and neither am I restricted to only these things but I would have little less self-loathing and probably be a better person in my own eyes if I do these things over the year.
So now, what will you suck at this year?
