Reflections and Resolutions

Once again we are at that time of the year, when we tend to reflect on the highs and the lows and make resolutions to abide by which will, ideally, improve our lives...Ive come far this year, in every ways... Ive grown internally, healed alot and learnt endlessly.I have regrets that cost alot.. The past 10 months had been like waves,one minute high up and the next your flat on your face..ups and downs.. like everyone else..Its what make us who we are, and what we are..This time of the year is always very sentimental to me,reflecting, reflecting...Its also the time when we traditionally make resolutions for the upcoming year which normally last as long as the New Year’s vacation and are soon quickly forgotten as we resume our usual busy schedules and daily lives..

"Making resolutions is a cleansing ritual of self-assessment and repentance that demands personal honesty and, ultimately, reinforces humility. Breaking them is part of the cycle."
Eric Zorn.

Well we are given the chance to get it right this time around again lol, put our willpower to test and absolutley ignore temptations(sigh) and stick to our resolutions for atleast a few months.Ive never been the one to take new years resolutions very seriously, a few months ill stick to it, and after that, its forgotten..I however tend to make changes as necessary on a day-day basis... to suit my own needs and wants lol..One thing ive learnt though, is to say exactly what I mean, and dont ever take anything or anyone for granted.. My greatest regrets is waiting too long to say the things I should have, there are so much pepole in my life - family, friends, and that special someone, whom iveall taken for granted that they will always be there, and that they know how important they are to me, but do they really know? When is the last time I told them?Have I ever told them?Sure I hug and kiss mom and dad each day, and tell them I love them, and everyone else, but did I ever told them exactly why I love them? Why they are so special to me?So this is my resolution for life, not just for New Years but each day, at least one heartfelt expression of friendship and love to someone near and dear to me..And yes, there are times when this expression of affection is embarrassing. I’m not a very demonstrative person, but I do want to rise above the fear of expression that I have, there are lots of worst things in the world than to be embarassed by your own emotions..
