every year most people will update their FB statuses, blogs, etc about their new year resolution. but for me, this is my first year that i decided to have one. i am not doing it just so that i'll join the bandwagon.
the truth is, i never really trust myself to have a resolution because i am too afraid that i'll be flustered if i am not able to achieve it. and i find myself achieving things that i've never planned to achieve so i thought, "i am not the resolution type of person.i am more of a doer".
here is the thing about doing new things everyday in your life.you do it, and you achieve it. that's it.
i never really feel the hurts and sweats of achieving something that i really want since i'll just do the things that i want at that particular moment. there were times that i didn't achieve what i aimed for. but why should i care?i have just thought about having/achieving it moments ago.
that is why this year i choose to look back and ponder. by having a new year resolution this year, it might change my attitude to the better. i am hoping that i'll be more grateful with people around me and the things that i have. insyaAllah
and for this purpose, i have chosen a verse from Al-Quran to keep on reminding me about being grateful
Be ever grateful to Allah for everything that you possess including your wealth, health, status, intellectual abilities and life. Allah says:
“Is, then, He Who creates comparable to any that cannot create? Will you not, then, take heed? For should you try to count Allah’s blessings, you could never compute them…” (An-Nahl 16:17-19).
so..the question is, what is my 2013 resolution?
may year 2013 be the year that i discover my true passion. *cough*
some people might not see this as a resolution..finding passionn??lol. but in my case, it is a serious situation. i love to do a lot of things! knitting, sewing, baking, teaching, reading, travelling etc. but i can't really find what is the utmost thing that will make me really happy doing it..so, i hope that i'll discover it by the end of this year. ;)
