Welcoming 2018!

Happy New Year!

January 1st, New Year or also known as the day to make resolutions for the coming year.

Resolutions help us become a better person or correct a habit that you might not like about yourself or even make the world a better place by contributing. Sometimes, we fail at executing it and sometimes, we don’t. But even a simple change in yourself can be the ripple to a life-changing wave.

Here are 6 simple life-changing resolutions that you can make for 2018:

  1. Show more kindness

    It is important to show kindness to everyone who deserves it. You must try to be more empathetic towards the conditions of others.

  2. Learn to say, “No”!

    While helping everyone and trying to fit in is important, it is also important to help oneself. You must learn to say, “NO” to things that go against your principles. Resist peer pressure and make no false promises.

  3. Spend more time with family

    If you were ever a family person, maybe this is the year you should change that. Spend more time with your family, make memories and get to know more about each other.

  4. Step out of your comfort zone

    It is important to explore every once in a while and step out of your comfort zone. It might seem scary in the beginning but it can lead up to a whole bunch of new experiences and self-discovery.

  5. Fly high but remember to land and stay grounded

    Always remember that compliments shouldn’t get to your head and criticism shouldn’t get to your heart.

  6. Believe in planning but also appreciate spontaneity

    Learn to plan more often and do it in a better way but also be prepared just in case it doesn’t work out. Also, indulge yourself in spontaneity more often.

Let’s welcome 2018 with warm hands, clear minds, jolly smiles and happy hearts!

How irrelevant can a person’s life be? You can be what you want to be and you try to do that. Your whole life in a loophole, running after that one thing when you can be thousands of other things. Still hammering that one heart you got, still going to places that remind you of your downfall, deliberately taking a step towards the abyss that will take you nowhere and you’ll keep on gasping, heartbeats running on the speed of lightning; you’ll keep on falling into the nothingness. It will slowly gulp up and suck out all the light. It will show you darkness.
Just when you get used to it, it’ll throw you back up to a place where smashed, bloody beating heart lies and gives you a second chance to fix it.
Echoes will be abundant.
“Pick it up, start again now.”
You’ll pick it up.
You’ll pick up the hammer again and smash that one heart all over again.
But you can still be whatever you want to be, but if your past still holds your back, you won’t be.
