I can’t believe that the last time I wrote here was 3 years ago.
December, 30th 2012 was the last time I posted anything on this blog. Have I not thought about it in those 3 years? of course I did. Unfortunately, there has been nothing but failed attempts that never brought Life’s Little Pleasures back to life.
Have I lost the ability to formulate a sequence of beautifully written words or did I just lose the enjoyment of getting high on words?
Or maybe I have nothing more to write about?
I can’t really get away with this, it’s been 3 years and I can’t even find a decent reason for not writing.
So yeah I am guilty of leaving this humble little space for so long.
Enough of this self-blame and now let us talk about how I decided to return back here.
Whenever a year is about to end, we all start talking about what we are going to change about ourselves in order to start a brand new year. Many of us commit to the new resolutions only for the first 2 weeks and then we go back to our habits that have been with us for all of our lives.
One of the reasons that we don’t stick to our new year’s resolutions is that we expect to wake up on the first day of the new year and magically find a new person who would change our life in a way which we haven’t experienced before. and when that doesn’t happen we blame this new person for failing and we go back to our authentic self.
The next year we try to do the same thing, hoping this new person have learned his lesson and would not ruin it for us again.
Well, guess what? The person who wakes up that morning of the new year is the same one who went to sleep the night before. You won’t magically wake up with a new personality or way of thinking.
So one of the little secrets that I know and try to do every year is that if I wanted to succeed in implementing new years’ resolutions, is that I definitely have to start before January 1st. It’s safe to say 2 to 3 weeks prior to celebrating the new year would help me to formulate that habit when the time comes.
So here I am, back to writing on my blog 3 weeks before the big 2016 is here, and will continue that as part of my new year’s resolutions.
so I guess this is it, Life’s Little Pleasures is back to life 🙂
