The end of yet another calendar year
has arrived. As it is tradition, amidst of all those festivity parties and
overindulgence in food and drinks, that tiny voice of reason inside our head
starts getting louder and louder. Well, the voice of reason might not be the
best word to describe it, but you know what I mean – it is that “good guy”
inside us who is yearning for something more meaningful and fulfilling. After
all, we always crave for more in life, a higher purpose and transcendence,
visible life improvements, upgraded prototype of ourselves…
I am sure that over the last couple
of days, many of us have faced a moment of serious pondering. It is those
questions like “How would I describe the past year?”, “How well have I treated
others and myself?”, “Can I do better?”, “In what way can I improve quality of
my life and develop myself further?”
Beginning of the new calendar year
symbolically marks beginning of a new cycle, a chance to “clean our drawers”,
take a moment or two for self-reflexion, and come up with one or more ambitious
resolutions which will improve not only quality of your life, but also loved
ones around you.
This is great stuff by all means.
Self-questioning and desire for improvements is necessary if we want to lead
better quality lives in all areas. The only “tiny” issue here is, how
drastic/realistic are you with your resolutions?
