Just came back unscathed from a few days spent at my mum’s place for a Xmas family get-together – now feeling (and looking) rather bloated after eating uncontrollably mum’s scrumptious cooking.
I’m now looking forward to 2010 which is almost upon us, as 2009 becomes a distant memory of perhaps missed opportunities to improve ourselves and our lives.
However, this is not the time to relive past failures of not instigating action towards a wiser life. The past is a dead thing which has been long since buried.
So we now must look ahead to a new year of great blooming promise, and to make sure we develop the motivation and wisdom so that we can overcome any difficulties whilst improving our minds towards greater happiness, relationships and achievements in our lives.
Here are Ten New Year’s Resolutions that I recommend you follow for 2010…and for life!
1. Spend more time with the important people in your life such as family and like-minded friends.
2. Turn off the junk TV and use your mind, spirit and body to do something more constructive with your time.
3. Stop reading garbage like celebrity newspapers and gossip magazines. Instead turn to philosophical wisdom by reading enlightening and life-changing books which will help improve your mind, and ultimately your life.
4. Instead of watching garbage like X Factor and Big Brother why not use your time to learn beneficial knowledge about the world we live by watching thought provoking documentaries and educational talks.
6. Find time to spend alone with yourself whilst observing and reflecting upon where you fit into the grand scheme of things. Withdraw into your inner kingdom to learn the most important lesson of self-knowledge.
7. Write down your daily thoughts in a journal or you can share your thoughts by creating a blog which may go on towards helping someone else find their way in life. Personally, becoming a creative thinker and writing down my own thoughts has been very therapeutic thus far, not to mention educating.
8. Learn to be more contented with what you presently have in life, no matter how little.
10. Last but not least, attain peace of mind by living simply.
I hope by applying these resolutions to your lives you can all have a more prosperous and wiser new year.
Happy New Year, everyone!
