2010 . . . So much anticipation and excitement for this numerical advance in time, that so many desperately hold onto for a new beginning, a clean slate, hoping that stating this number as present will lead to an increase of willpower, determination and self belief. Things that should never have been forgotton and never be prolonged.
Amongst my thoughts of personal traits and abilities to change and develop i came to the conclusion of one minor detail......what's the point? The realisation came to me that if a person cannot control thier actions or emotions for the remaining 364 days of the year, what supernatural force conjured on the 1st of January gives them the motivation to do so? As the human race we live day by day, week by week and despite the number written on your bank statements, till reciepts or in the corner of your computer screen we will always be subject to animal instinct, desire, greed, jelousy no number or figure of recorded time can change that, no year is "new" year. Same timeline, same slow, inferior hosts to the souls we possess.
To make the concious decision to change ones self, or qualities in that person is a choice that need not wait for a date in time, a pin pointed split second where the universe pauses and just for a moment, everything is pure, clean and perfect. Where there's no going back. Growth has no patience and if ignored, the opportunity will pass. before habit and the tempation to wait draw near, make the change. Wether it be mentally, spiritually or that of the world, 12 O'Clock december 31st is not the time to do so, now is the time, now is always the time, even now. . . . or now!
My New Years Resolution is to turn from making one. to have a resolution always in heart. 2010 will not bring happiness, it will not be a perfect year full of friendship, of laughter. History repeats itself, and we as a people make mistakes, we WILL fall, in one way or another, the one thing we can control is how quickly we pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and continue to follow and believe in your new state of mind. Remember why you made these choices, always remember your inspiration. your goal.
I pray that i too can do the same.
Enjoy "2010".... see you at the finish line.
