"Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow."

Another year is about to come to an end. And will this day be any different. This should be. But lets don't jump into the party mood and get on the dance floor, get drunk and get a huge hangover on the first day of the year. Well, I don't drink also, so that narrows down. And also there are no much dance floors vacant either. So that narrows even further. So, umm... what's left? Nothing, right! Exactly.
You know they say the life flashes before our eyes before we die! Okay, I am not going to die today, but we can force out thoughts to ponder about the year that just passed by and how different I am today compared to this day last year. Yeah, so I did force my thoughts to think about something amazing that just might make my day. I tried. When I mention about trying, you should also get the idea that there are no such things. Doesn't it look like I am forcing myself to think about something, something amazing, something equally awesome that never happened and wished to happen. But alas! I am left with a empty page and a dripping pen.
I don't make resolutions because I know I am the worst at following anything. So, if I say I want to go on a diet ( which is like suicide, come on whom am I kidding? Phew! Me dieting? ) , I would eat even more. Okay, that was a wrong example. Umm, lets talk about swearing! Not even one word was my target, though it wasn't a new year resolution, but still something I had thought of "NOT DOING". You hear me, not-doing! It is like a thing I should really do, no matter what, no matter how small the issue is. So yeah, you get the story here , right ? Keeping that in mind, I have decided to make the exact opposite of resolutions, if I make any!
Since I forced myself to think about the year, I don't remember much of the things. But let me jot down some of the normal things that aren't quite normal in my life.
- I got into a project. Though there was too much drama in the beginning and even in the end, but still I could tell that this is the year, I actually started working.
- I got to make a few good friends as the year drew to its near. And the cycle of life works in mysterious ways, as we know it. So, when something really good happens, the life just have to kick in the ass and as they say give lemons. Okay, that sounds gross when I write it like that. The point here is that those few friends that I made are leaving, left the project. So, you see. LIFE!
- I spent a hell lot of money and when I say spent, I mean wasted.
- Thats' it ? WTH ! Seriously, is anyone going to kill me?
Twenty - 14 !
I don't have much hopes for the year to come. Because I never understood what I would do differently. May be that is the reason, I am still stuck in this small world and not exploring. They say hope and passion drive the people's mind. Wait, did anyone say that! I just made it up! So when you ask Dude, what are your plans for next year? I reply with a Poker-face! So, don't ask me please. I really don't make plans for the future. Yes, I know I am weird and stupid; and also nothing is going to change that. Anyway, let me end this with a poem which I have been posting on every 31st December, that is the last day of the year.
Past has taught Lessons.
Memories have brought Happiness.
Time has taught Living.
Mistakes have brought Wisdom.
Now, New is the Year.
New are the Aspirations and Dreams.
Behold the Newness.
Step forward, Step Ahead.
Here it comes, yet another Glorious Year.
With a Smile on your Face.
And Hope in the Heart.
Cherish the Past.
Replenish the Future.
And Never Forget,
Live the Moment.
Okay, I agree, this is not a poem, in any angle. My apologies. But let me conclude with this.
"Wish you and your family a Happy and Prosperous New Year."
Life is short, just like 70-80 year. And remember I said something about the memories flashing before he eyes before we die, please do make sure that they aren't as vacant as mine. #JustSaying.
