After the celebration, the next challenge will obviously be what to do in this new year. That is, making progress from where you ended the previous year or moving to another level of a career or position. At the moment, they seem to be a million and one things going on in your mind. However, if you plan well in time, and be ready to take each day as it comes, you can be at least sure that by the time another year comes knocking again, you should or must have moved miles. As the saying goes, a thousand-mile journey begins with the first step. Don’t be afraid to take that first step or feel low on taking a leap in the dark.
If you fall, it’s not the end, but a beginning to be courageous, firm and cautious with any undertaking. Mind you, you only live life once, so you shouldn’t be afraid to try new challenges. I am sure you don’t want to spend all your life waiting for the bright, sunny days than never come.
Ah! This reminds me of the awful side of the coin when we celebrate each New Year. Each year means you are getting older, and if you don’t mind me saying that getting closer to your grave. Of course, getting older to others is a sign of wisdom, getting wiser by surviving all the hardship or making it high in a very competitive world. However, if you don’t fit to any quota of this spectrum, this is your time to look back on how far you have journeyed, and think of how far you still plan to travel. Only you can do that and nobody else. You might be on the right track or is completely out of track, which means you still have a chance to either change your direction or retrace your route and take an absolutely different direction.
Whether you’re still suffering from the hangover of last night or planning more celebrations, be ready to embrace anything that comes your way in this new year. And to survive in this dangerous water of life, which means you either swim or sink, just keep your head up. As one man told me yesterday, just as I was about to finish my work and head home, be happy.
