HAPPY NEW YEAR! And I’d like to share this video with all of you to start the new year on a positive note.
It was awfully quiet as I made my way home last night, after a sumptuous dinner of Mexican food. At the Hong Kong Cafe where I sat with my friend till the clock struck twelve, no one around us jumped up with joy, or toasted or cheered to the arrival of a brand new year.
It’s like any other day.
It is just another day, just as what a good friend of mine would say. He feels that New Year celebrations reek of commercialism, that is why he never makes a deal out of it. To him, it’s merely a skip of the digits, just like the numbers on the clock, the numbers from lottery, the numbers on the stock index. Life goes on.
True, but still I’m all excited about the new year. Perhaps it’s an excuse to start anew, and to focus on what lies ahead. That’s why I’ve set myself a new year resolution to de-clutter my life. I have the urge to trash, organise and clear some space at home, because I think the environment that we live in will affect the sort of aura that surrounds us too. It’s not superstition, it’s more like a psychological encouragement that if I can be free from all these material possessions, I can be free in spirit. There is too much negative energy in the world. Everyday in the news, there are bound to be (at some point) disasters, accidents, political turmoil, murders, suicides, family disputes, legal tussles and so on.
I’m really looking forward to 2008, where I can lead a life that is undisturbed and at peace. 🙂
What are your new year resolutions?
