And It's 2011...

As another New Year approaches, the usual resolutions like losing weight or taming your career come to mind. According to me, it is also the time to mull over on how to help oneself become a better individual by cultivating certain areas of my life and to not to repeat the mistakes that I committed this year.

It is difficult to feel positive about life when things don't seem to go the way you want. Like all people I too have moments when I feel low but then there is a lot more to life. Abraham Lincoln's words come to mind, "We can complain that rose bushes have thorns. Or we can rejoice that thorn bushes have roses". We all have a tendency to look at the negative but it is so much better to look for the positive in our lives. I know it’s easily said than done. But there is no harm in giving it a try.

Another very important thing that I have learnt is to stop expecting others to change for me because each person has his or her own life to lead, and though you can advise them, their life will be their own. Even in love you have to feel sufficient in yourself rather than worry about being hurt or not being loved enough. As they say, “Life is short, so enjoy every single moment of it.” What we have today might not stay with us tomorrow so let’s cherish it.

It is also essential to be yourself otherwise you will lose track of who you are meant to be in life. Sometime we are swayed by other people or we change ourselves so that people love or like us more. This is when words of Oscar Wilde, "Be yourself, everyone else is taken. It is only by discovering one's true self that you can find your true journey in the world. You have to start liking yourself for others to like you. It’s better to avoid inferiority complex. It just pulls you down.

Every individual should welcome change in life. That is what makes life such an interesting journey. As you grow older you grow wiser and each age brings with it a new beauty and experience.

In conclusion, the words of Jesus, "Pure Love is a flood which covereth all things. Nothing can stand against it, for it floweth from the Eternal Sea" it encourages us to think better and make better persons of ourselves as we grow afar the limits that we set upon ourselves as humans.

Have a kickass 2011! Enjoy! :)
