9 Inspiring (and Realistic) Thoughts for the Year

New Year can be a time of forgetfulness, or simply as easy as turning a page without closing a book. That’s the way I look at it.

Resolutions, despite having tried to make them before and often succeeded, are not in need of a time or place to truly come to life. They could, very simply, be words of wisdom that spread their inspiration across the pages of the year, reminding us to live a lifetime, not slices of years.

So lets try and solve this dilemma of aspirational, achievable and personal resolutions, once again.

What is the perfect resolution after all? Nine things I’ve both learned across my travels in the past year, and that I’ll keep in mind for the upcoming slices of time. Some are whimsical, just like me.

Page 1 of 365, Chapter 1 of 12. Don’t judge it by the cover, or the chapter you walk in on. Remember that it’s not even really a beginning, just a going on. And people may just read partway into the lines.

Cheers: to the people who love me, to the losers who lost me, and to the lucky ones who will meet me. Loving yourself never goes out of style, so surround yourself with the positive energy of those who love you too. And for the others, there is always a token of opportunity.

The new year means nothing if you are still in love with your comfort zone. Being in love has its drawbacks, of course. Look up motivational and challenging quotes to read deeper into this one.

Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life. But stepping out of your comfort zone may lead you to this other extreme, which you don’t want to live in either.

Have the confidence level of a selfie with no filter. Because what’s better than a modern day metaphor in an era when life will go on precisely when you are staring at your phone.

Everyone has 3 lives: a public life, a private life, and a secret life. Respect that. Enough said, quite plainly. The nose seems to be everyone’s favorite part of the anatomy these days.

You cannot please everyone. You are not a giant box of s’mores. Or any dessert really. Everyone has tastes and preferences, just be yourself. Case in point, the next motto.

Be yourself, everyone else is taken. Borrowed from my favorite Oscar Wilde, it couldn’t ring truer that you have to be true to the only person you live inside.

Cheers to a new year, and a chance to get it right. Although even then, being right is subjective, isn’t it?
