New Year’s Resolution, Not Needed!

2008 chapter is closing very soon, it’s the perfect time to look back and reflect. Everyone is taking this opportunity to unfold the year, like Aeropama and Bongkersz did.


Me? I don’t need to do that, muhasabah is already my routine.

Anyway, I met my 2008 resolutions. It was rather too easy, except point #1, which is continually evolving. Not much challenge for a half ass expectation. I was a total screw up in the previous year, it explains the shallow resolution.

Those days, I wore a thick armor, shielding my ego. A smiley mask, hiding away untreated wounds. And a thick mantel, pretending to care about the world. I’m a fake. A fraud. A confused 24 year old brat.

Somehow, I’m glad I learned to put those behind and focus.

For 2009, I decided I no longer need a New Year’s Resolution. Instead a Life Resolution.

  • To stay away from debt and spend money I don’t have
  • To live a healthy and blessed life
  • To shoulder the burden of the poor and unfortunate ones
  • To NOT procrastinate and waste time
  • To pickup a new skill every year
  • To be a good listener and accept ideas
  • To NOT be verbal eventhough it’s the anal truth
  • To be closer to God and have a stronger faith

Time isn’t a luxury we have. Each passing second overrides the previous one. Before you knew it, a year went by. So don’t wait for another year to change yourself, do it now.

ps: Life Resolution, is not limited to the above. Continually evolving, fitting in accordingly.

pss: I spent 3 hours writing this. Gosh, I wish I could’ve been more efficient


I am web developer, who's main concern is to save the trees. Nonetheless
