New Beginnings - #MondayMusings

B is for beginnings...

A quote I read and loved -

"We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves."


Life is an empty notebook where I inscribe and illustrate my journey, certain pages come out vibrant whereas others are lacklustre. Each page has a new font, colour, alignment. Creating a fresh start on a new page is possible but changing the notebook is not possible. Not that I wish to change mine but sometimes when the emotions start blackmailing and the grass appears greener on the other side, this notion just pops up.   I have learned quite a bit over the years and am more liberal to choose my stationery, I am more into creating my original craft, filling in colour that appeals to me at that moment. I just create and let myself enjoy each moment.

Everywhere on the internet, I see talks about resolution. Well, the new year brings up that feeling, just like independence day makes us a patriot. However, this year I am off the resolutions; as it is I have never stood true to them anyways. So, here I go living each day.

So this new year no initiating new resolutions or setting up a new timetable. Over the last few years, I realized the dates and time stamp is to ease out the working schedule but I began to fuss over them so much that the actual cause got lost. So, here I stand before the web( ah! sit before the PC) and try to work hard, stay firm, determined, and keep moving ahead. Worries didn't help in the past and gave me weight issues only.

People may have a hundred solutions to my problems but I for once shall take decisions unadulterated by others intervention. Fruitful or futile, I bare the responsibility.

 It is great if things fall into the time frame, however, I do not plan to fret even if  I lag behind.  keeping my spirits up and ready to work hard. There is nothing more satisfying than a task accomplished, but a failed one is an experience too.

Best wishes and a happy new year!

So, Do you make resolutions or take life as it comes?

    1. That is the point. A rough idea is enough to make it through the day.

  3. Resolutions are tricky - I saw this article that said that talking about making changes will make them less likely to happen. Why you shouldn’t share your goals – “Other people’s taking notice of one’s identity-relevant intentions apparently engenders a premature sense of completeness regarding the identity goal.” https://www.rogerogreen.com/2019/01/01/2018-in-review-learn-to-navigate/

    1. For me resolutions became a headache and as they kept on piling I felt bad. The moment I stopped thinking about them things became easier. I am quite organised and planned but resolutions made the situation stuffy ...

  4. Good for you! I've thought that about losing and winning for awhile. We can't do everything right the first time, second, third, and on. With perseverance, if that's what I want to do, I continue until I get it right. Of course am I sure I know what that right looks like? Oh noooo.

    1. it is a common problem with us, we indulge too much in the consequences and outcomes that the actual cause loses its essence and things go haywire. Aren't we all ignorant to the actual right ;)

    1. Thank you for the kind words. There is no way out without trying, as quitting never solves the problem. Also, Kudos to you for taking succeeding in quitting smoking. Stay true to it, firm.
