Hello 2016, welcome. Or should i say, thanks for welcoming me into yet another year. I've never really liked the idea of celebrating the new year, i dont know why. I don't like dealing with the overexcitement that consumes people as soon as the clock strikes midnight as if it actually makes a world of a difference. I don't like dealing with the joke the morning after with things like "ive been sleeping since last year" bla bla, seriously people it's getting old. and you're getting old. I don't like having to remember what year it actually is for the first few months. And i don't like dealing with people asking me
"what's your new years resolution"
Because i never really had one. Or maybe i did. But never have i ever achieved any. Like most of us.
But this year however, i think that needs to change. Because i feel pathetic making empty promises to myself and not even being able to fulfil those kinds of commitment. And honestly after long reflecting on this matter, I don't get why I've been avoiding resolutions or accomplishing them. Because thinking back about it, none of my resolutions were even that complicated. I just wanted to study harder or be a better person. Never have I wished to go to Cabo or free climb the twin towers of petronas or whatever. They were all pretty realistic resolutions. I am a sad human being for not having the slightest amount of discipline to accomplish my own promises. And that I would like to change.
So this year, I have chosen a simple new years resolution to reduce waste. I want to start bringing my own bags everyday to grocery stores, and avoid using tissues or plastic cutleries by bringing my own from home and possibly buy less packaged items. And i will try my best to accomplish this. Hopefully. In sya allah.
I'll check back with you by the end of the year.
What's your realistic resolution this year? :)
