It's this time of the year when people are making their long list of resolutions of what they want to do or don't want to do for the coming year. The timing is all perfect considering that we just opened a 365-page story book. It need not for you to have a very bad 2013 in order for you to make one, or it doesn't stop you on making one if you have won the lottery the previous year. It seems like people are always trying to get better (or worse unknowingly), even myself is guilty of it.
Don't get me wrong, resolutions are great, only if you have not broken it the first day of the fucking new year. These are changes that you would want to come into reality. Change in lifestyle, change in study habits, change in attitude, or what not. My point is, does this really make you who you are and who you want to be, in a couple of days? You see, what I am trying to say is, these shits will only give more guilt and disappointment on your part if you were not able to perform it the way you envisioned doing it. The list goes like this: You said that you will try to cut the crap foods on your diet, then gulped a truckload of chocolates the very night you said it. You said that you will cut off the alcohol running in your system so that it will not replace your blood, but drank a hard drink the next night with your holy friends, how did i know, because you fuckin' posted your JD and Hennessy on your social media but kept the Gin Bilog bottle underneath your sofa. You have not consumed a cigarette for years, but sniffed a stick just by the scent of your friend who just had one. You said that you will not let him or her in your life anymore because you have had enough, but the next day you were the one who greeted him or her a good morning, You said that you will study harder, but you'll end up 8 hours in a computer shop trying to prove that you will study harder idiot. You said that you will be a better brother or sister, then fight with them after a few hours because they are watching Toonami and you want to watch Princess Hours. You said that you will be a good son or daughter, only to disobey them after a few minutes. You said that you will be more responsible socially, then you spit on the ground or throw a wrapper of candy. You said that you will be more active physically, you even bought training apparels, but you have a hard time carrying your butt off of your bed early in the morning (I'm guilty of this one). You even post status or tweet that goes like "New Year, New Me", "Hello 2014, Goodbye 2013", "This will be my year #2014", "Year of the Wooden Horse #MyYear" even if you are born in the Year of the Wrecking Ball son! and all these other posts who have more hashtags than the times they stayed true to their resolution.
I will not be a hypocrite because I try to make one or two changes in my life but I do not call it resolutions. I just keep it to myself, and curse if I have to wait for the next year to have a chance to do it again LOL. I also embrace the YOLO Philosophy, I mean, I get it, you have to live better in order for you to have a longer life, but doing so, you limit yourself on what you really want to do. You will make yourself feel bad if you are not able to fulfill the promise that you made to yourself fool. That is the reason why I do not make resolutions. Try to live life the way you want it to be lived, and to hell with the consequences. It doesn't mean that you live the life of Miley Cyrus, but just enjoy it. Do not put opposing force on the things that you want to do, force that stops you for being who you are in the first place. Just keep it to yourself because Resolutions are for fools. It will make you feel guilt like you have never felt it before. Just wait for the next year for you to have a chance to do it again, or not to. JA
