Today, at work as I was rummaging through my desk, I came across a paper. Nothing important, except for the fact that it was my resolution list for this year. Well out of my hopeful ten new things to learn, I just did one thing; adventure trip which had taken place early this month. As for the rest of the ten, I think I ll be graying by the time I even think of achieving them. Ironical to say, considering the fact that resolutions are made only for those things which can be achieved. Don’t know why I never get to do the things that I really want to do ? Lack of time? Maybe. Void of enthusiasm ? Nope, I would definitely jump at the opportunity to learn ballet. It is just that most of the time, I spend working or doing work related stuff; or else I would be in the midst of my chores like laundry, grocery shopping, paying the bills…an endless list !! Frankly speaking, on seeing my list, I came to one decision; enough is enough. It’s time to stop working non-stop and do one tiny different thing daily, even if it is for a short time. Something that would enable me to spend some time to myself, learning something new or just plain relaxation. Life is too short to keep resolutions. Before my time runs out, I want to make the most of life. Going to make each day my page. Even if it means that there would be less laundry trips with a bigger load, more dusting left undone – an hour of reading ” Towers of Midnight“, or listening to ” The Fame Monster” is is by far more worth.
I want to make each day a page of experiences, of reflections, of memories…something I would like to turn through time and realize that my life was not spent not only on work, but also some moments with and for myself. I want each page to be a story, memories to reminiscence for later. For as said by my mentor, Alta alatis patent i.e. “The sky is open to those who have wings” !!
