Salam Maal Hijrah 1432

A new year. Phew.

It’s been a good start. An opposite to last year. I started off 1431 with heartache and sarcasm on the side. It has been a pretty crazy year for me. A rollercoaster of work expansion, mood swings, relationships, diversity of the assignments, and being massively loaded with extra teaching here and there.

Thank God though that my second part of the year got better, in fact got really good. I couldn’t stop smiling on a few occasions.

So, I am expecting really nice, happier things this year. Am praying for the simplest thing really; to be happy.

With the highs and lows of 1431/2010 now put to bed and plans pretty much visualized for 1432/2011, I have one over-riding New Year's ambition:

I want to be better at everything I do. Like a lot, lot better. I want to make every single thing matters and better!

Well, of couse I’d be adding more to the resolution list in the near future. Which most would not be carried out or achieved. Hey, I’ll make it happen this time. Yiiiieha!

Yikes, make way for my conscious, highly composed self to speak:


I think that the biggest problem with New Year's resolutions is that people (especially me) have grandiose and unrealistic ideas, promise that they will fulfill them in the coming year, then in many cases, don't manage to succeed.

However, I believe that if one merely resolves to attempt to change something for the better (realizing full well that one might not succeed), and does so with you know, realistic expectations, this can be a good thing.

Good luck!

Wishing you

happy memories of the past and

a great beginning for the coming of
