Closing One Chapter, On To The New Year!

The new year is here and we are fast approaching a new decade. As I can not make any promises or “resolutions”, because they would likely be broken before they even begin, I have begun to take a step back and work on a few things — Eating healthier and trying to think less negatively are just minor ones — I long to be bold and disciplined in my work/creativity/home-life and family-relationships, and cut ties that are not necessary; I desire to be a good example to my son and to regain myself from the hold of my “on again, off again” depression and moodiness and, be a more supportive partner.

These are bigger issues but yeah, I’m human too…

Very soon, I will be closing one personal chapter to begin writing another. It’s going to be difficult, but I feel it will be okay.

Prepared for the worst, but hoping for the best.

I’m ready to get back in the studio and finish recording a few songs that have been on standby. I’m also looking forward to starting a small garden this year and swimming more. Could be theraputic. I’ve always loved the water. It’s a chance to re-center, regain some of myself that was lost, and hopefully grow and thrive.

Anything good you guys are looking forward to?

The internet reaches so many different countries and cultures, and some of you seem to be students. We are all in different places and phases of our lives yet, I think it’s natural to be reflective as the year closes.

What are your thoughts?

  3. New year new chapter, nothing beats starting afresh. It always refreshing for me. Yes, I will be starting a new phase of my life and of course hoping for the best.

  4. Always looking forward to a new year, always time for new beginnings and closing endings. It really is a wonderful feeling when you know you have another whole new year to go on another journey of self discovery and whatnot.

  5. Indeed the new year is a dawn of new beginnings and an ending of the old chapter. Starting it right is a definite must and hoping that this year will turn out better than before. Be positive and smile at everything life throws you.

  6. I always find writing my new year resolutions quite useful. Even though i may not accomplish all of them, at least at the end of the year i will be able to review my progress against my accomplishments. Happy new Year!

  7. It’s very true that New Year’s Resolution can be broken even before it begins. Anyways, it’s always depend on our decision if we sincerely change those painful past and make it meaningful this year.

    1. Yeah, that’s because people need to resolve to do the best they can every day, instead of waiting for some New Year’s Resolution day that somebody created. True, it’s a great time for everyone to reflect, but my point is that some people only wait for this day that the world appointed to them to reflect.

  8. The New Year is great for new beginnings. I think family is probably the highest priority followed by finding meaningful work. Thanks for sharing!

  9. I will agree with you, no need dwelling on the past, whatever is not working should be closed and a new chapter of life opened and life continues.
