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.
When I am daydreaming or hanging around idly, these are a few thoughts that pop into my head.
This is true of every traveller.
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.
These greats have left for a better place. We are left with their wisdom and words.
I’ve become lazier than usual. Normally, I love to write. On my daily commute, my mind drifts off into a wondrous fantasy where all I do is read, and write. Then the driver brakes so hard that I am jolted back to reality, where I get an ample amount of time to do what pays the bills. I am reading whenever I get the time (I sound so white-collar, I know). Looking for Alaska was an impulse buy because I had heard so much about The Fault in Our Stars and John Green. And I tend to buy in the series.
