In five days, this blog would be 5 years old.
This post is just to thank everyone who has borne with me over the years, and to wish them, and everyone else, a New Year full of fulfilled possibilities.
If we didn’t have a calendar, New Year’s day would be just another day, as would our birthdays. But as a race, we believe in cycles of renewal, in marking time and memory, and in ritualising both. We believe that new would be better than the old, that we can become different people in the coming time — which leads us to New Year Resolutions.
For the last few years, I’ve been making one major resolution, and several minor ones. My major resolution for 2012 was to learn how to swim, and I ticked it off the list. Other goals were to write more, and be healthier — both of which seem to be working out. I’m 4 kilos lighter and have written about 56000 words this far, besides editing a few short stories.
Goal for 2013:
Finish my #WIP and get it ready for publication. Continue to write more, and work towards better health.
Do you believe in the New Year, and its resolutions?
