New Year’s Resolutions?

So, it is 2021. 2020 was an interesting year. I could start learning how to play the guitar and broke up with my ex-girlfriend. So, what? 2020 is gone. This coming 2021 sounds very futuristic to me. Maybe we are living the future world. Seeing boring TV programs through this new year holidays, I felt like I watched enough TV as I should watch in this year. Then I realized the 2050 people would think this electric car TV-ad as very uncool. Anyway, future must be cooler. I have no motivation and feel much meaning to write about this new year’s resolutions, but let me try, even the world would experience more harsh situation.

  1. Be yourself
  2. Don’t be a pretender (of someone cool)
  3. Do what I should do

Simple, right? Too much detailed plans can kill you. The best way to achieve your plan is not to make a plan. However, the abstract plans seems to work this year. I have been feeling that I was pretending someone cool. But I have gradually realized that the person who try to be cool is not cool. The person who is not cool is really cool. I want to accept my craziness this year. I will not deny my honest desires. I will do what I really should do and want to do. I will brush up myself and be the best man I can be.

  1. Those are good goals! It’s hard to know which things we do because it makes us happy and which we do because of societal influences or pressures. I had given up on exercising because I thought I was doing it to please others. Recently I’ve been trying to get back into it because I realized that being fit genuinely makes me happy, and getting a good workout in gives me a sparked feeling of accomplishment.
    I wish you luck sorting through the things that make you who you are, and which things make you someone else!
