So, it's now 2008....
Hmmmm... if you look at it from another angle, it's just another day in life.. only because we follow the current westernized calendar, and based on that method of counting, this day is supposed to mean something & needs to be celebrated... what if we were to count 365 (minus the 0.25 days) starting from another day of another month, than 1st of January would be meaningless except for those who's birthday falls on this day.. and to some people living in the high mountains of Tibet or the deep rain forest of Amazon, they might not even care that it's 2008.. to them it might be year 20,008 or 208 for that matter.. who knows..
The point is.. we all get hyped about numbers.. don't be an Angka-Sawan when we should be an Angkasawan.. you don't need 'yearly' resolutions that will never be achived, try to go on the simple mode of gettings small things done daily that mounts up to a bigger picture.. For example, you don't have to aim to 'go for an overseas vacation in 2008' but you may want to look at how you spend daily in order for you to have a savings of RM10,000 and get to go on that vacation by Xmas 2008 (which falls on a Thursday, so maybe you'd like to finish of work in advance too so you can take leave on Friday 26th and continue up to Awal Muharram which is on Monday, 29th Dec 2008).. get what I'm trying to say? ;)
With that in mind, I wish you all a good 366 days ahead!!
