For some reason, I’ve started feeling very tired. I’m not really in the mood for resolutions, especially since a few of last year’s resolutions haven’t been completed. I think I may be feeling this way since I don’t have any winter vacations to relax in? Or maybe I’m still carrying a lot of stress on my back.
I’m not sure.
Here are the resolutions I had for 2016:
I think what’s really made me give up on resolutions is how you just stop thinking about them once they’re written down. I didn’t think about saying anything nice and genuine to someone everyday. I know I should have (I mean how hard is this resolution?) but I didn’t. I must’ve read, by a maximum estimation, only ten books. I did write my blog regularly (the only break I took was during my professional examinations). I’m not sure if I learned how to handle anxiety and stress.
I suppose 2016 has been a good year in terms of interacting with people, although the times when I was very antisocial tend to stick out more. I did buy that sketchbook though and I ended up converting it into a notebook, so that’s one completed resolution. I kept a happy jar. I wasn’t too harsh on myself when it came to academics. I’ve been slacking off horribly when it comes to tafsir though.
I’m not sure if I should write resolutions for 2017. I’ve already written a few blog related resolutions that you can read up here. But yeah, I’m just not in the mood for more 2017 resolutions that will be mostly broken. Let’s stick to one resolution then?
Goals for 2017: Make the world a better place.
Won’t you join me?
