Hey, all! Happy New Year (19 days later). I started 2016 just like last year. Woke up, looked in the mirror, and deftly went back to sleep. For me, January 1 is a day like any other. Nothing new. It took 365 days for the New Year to reach and rid us of the crap fest that was 2015. Most of you will agree that the last year was not a very pleasant one. Controversies, hate, ignorance, intolerance, sadness, and a great deal of irritability ruled our lives every day. Everybody rang in the New Year with a new hope, I’m sure. We’ve all made resolutions and since it’s day 19 already, we’ve already broken about 22 of them.
Are resolutions so hard to keep? Maybe it’s the irrational ones that are easy to break. Looking at so many lists, I felt even I had to share a list of things to do in 2016. Time for fresh starts. Here are a few resolutions that we should strive to keep.
I’m casually skimming through the internet during my do-absolutely-nothing time and what do I see? A hilarious picture captioned “#ThingsJesusNeverSaid”. I looked up the tweet and was amused by the number of funny “things Jesus never said”. Some tweets were amusing and some were worth giving a thought. Here are a few of my favourites.
6 months and 2 posts. These are my stats for this year. For someone who loves to write and dreams of writing and jumps with joy whenever she gets a book or a pen as a present and wants to spend her life writing, I have shockingly fallen short of my goals. And the root cause of all this is my laziness.
First of all, I would like to wish everyone a happy new year. I hope this year we live with tolerance, happiness, peace, and satisfaction. My year has started off on a slow note, nothing great, nothing not-great; just slow. But like everyone I too have made resolutions (or rather, a resolution); and that is – to read more.
When I am daydreaming or hanging around idly, these are a few thoughts that pop into my head.
This is true of every traveller.
When we pursue something just to make money, there’s only misery attached to it. But when we pursue something to make ourselves happy, there’s no feeling that can match it. The pursuit of happiness lies in satisfaction, not in profit.
My belief in the entity we call “God” is complicated. I believe in a higher power, in a spiritual existence, and tolerance for all; which is pretty much the opposite of what is happening in the world today. Atheism is not for me. Neither is religion. Given a choice, I would choose a side that lives for and loves everyone. True devotees agree that God lives in the heart for that’s where emotions come from. So you can imagine, for a person like me to see fanatic God posts just to get likes or shares is just irritating. This post is dedicated to God on Facebook, for Facebook, and by Facebook.
