So, the New Year fever is high on every head...even mine too, but the only difference is I am busy in hitting the keys of my laptop and people are busy in banging the floor with their feet and express their enthusiasm to welcome 2012, whom they will be waving goodbyes after a year in the same way but then the attention would be more on the welcome of next year...
Okay why all this? The wishes, the happiness, the resolution formations and all that excitement? Practically what has changed? Only the last digit of your date format? One numeric digit change has made the whole world go crazy.. huh..!!
Have your work in office changed? Has your principle announced the inaugural of pool-party-lectures instead of routine boring class schedule? Your partner isn’t paining your nerves anymore? Or have the rotten yet not-forgotten moments of past sent you an apology letter to confess their chasing attitude? What is the remarkable difference that this New Year has made in your life, which is worth celebrating?
Now some people may argue that it is a good chance for them to restart their lives and start working on it all over again. Fair enough! You consider 2012 as a life renewal system, but does that help? Are you sure? If you bet then i have an argument, you did the same last year, and did that work? May be yes for a minor part of population but what about you, ask yourself!!
Now the people who believe that enjoyment is the key to happiness and no one should attempt the foolishness to miss any chance of celebrating and rejoicing occasion may disagree with the points I am trying to make here. But fellas, I am not at all against celebrations. The point is why rejoicing the arrival and departure only, why not every day?
Why can’t we hold this zeal of celebration in our every new day? The New Year which comes once in a year deserves a grand celebration then why not every new day that knocks your door ever day? Have you ever given a thought to celebrate your every day and rejoice every moment passing by? May be you cannot afford to shake your butt daily on new dance numbers and your pocket may not allow you dine in those “yo-yo” type of restaurants but still you can have a calm and composed attitude to respect every single second that life has gifted you with.
Happiness is something divine which does not need a list of excuses to happen, it is within you. Just look inside your soul and hold it. Start being happy every single second and i wish may this thought be your New Year resolution for this time's celebration.
Happy New Year 2012.
Adieu 2011, you have been a nice companion so far.
