Great Minds are Young

Archive for December 2011

At the end of every year I start reflecting on that year and assessing it in every way, writing resolutions, regretting some deeds, promising to change and become a better person, building high hopes and raising my expectations and challenges for the coming year. It’s basically all about changing, improving, becoming better in every way… Resolutions may be as simple as losing few pounds or as deep as a complete moral and human make over. Whatever it is, CHANGE would always be the star, which is a great thing at many different levels.

However, this year, I don’t feel like changing. It’s not because I have nothing to change, or I have reached a phase of self-satisfaction. Not at all. I’m way far from that… It’s just that I feel like taking all the spotlight away from the old me, where change would be the star, and try a completely new thing that would mark my new year and make it more special. I don’t want to change, I want to explore. I don’t want to just improve something old, I want to create something new.

I made up my mind! Yes, I did! This year my resolutions’ star won’t be CHANGE! It’s going to be innovation, creation, or simply trying something new. I’ll embrace novelty in all its aspects.

Well, to tell you the truth, I still don’t know what it is going to be about, but believe me the idea of it overwhelms me with a great feeling of freedom, positive energy and determination to have a great NEW year ahead!

Why don’t you give it a try!

Today witnesses the beginning of a merry month marked by lots of love, forgiveness, good spirit, sharing, and festivity; a merry month marked by the birth of the Savior, the rebirth of humankind…

Today also witnesses the beginning of the end of a  year that witnessed all kinds of experiences and emotions, lots of ups and downs, lots of disappointments but also good surprises, lots of aggression and negativity but also love, care and tenderness, lots of nonchalance put also enthusiasm…

Today should most importantly witness the beginning of a new me and the end of the ‘usual’ me; a new me that doesn’t necessarily contradict the old me, but rather complement, support and add value to the old me. A new me that is just like me…
