So, it’s finally 2012! Happy New Year! What have you been up to?
Me? Well I have been thinking.
For example, today, I thought about this:
Why do people make resolutions for the New Year? Why not mid-year resolutions? Year-end resolutions? My job sucks resolution? OMGWTF resolution?
Is it because it’s the New Year and it’s supposed to signify a fresh new start?
I’m tired of hearing people talk about their resolutions. Be happy! Be healthy! Bang that son-of-a-beech next door!
Stop making New-Year the excuse you need to make that change. If you want it, DO IT.
But I’m not the one to judge. Heck I gave myself plenty of excuses when it comes to things that I want. My friends can definitely attest to that.
However, I’m proud to say that I’ve been making things happen. Last year, I’ve had my ups and downs, especially when it comes to work.
I had been complaining for the past 2 years on how my last job wasn’t what I wanted.
Of course it pays well, great company and the UNGODLY hours are sometimes GODLIKE, but it just wasn’t what I enjoyed doing. I tried to learn, but nothing goes in. This just wasn’t it.
I am a stern believer in working in something that you enjoy doing.
And I’ve been very lucky to have parents that support me in what I choose to do.
So I looked online and I searched the papers.
I tried everything I could find, sent out resumes through friends and relatives and finally I ended up with my new job and without any favours. I did it all by myself.
It was a fresh start in a new field. It’s was scary, but I was ready.
As expected, there are still its ups and downs, but I’m enjoying the ride so far and I’m learning to do what I’ve enjoyed doing. Communications.
I MADE IT HAPPEN.
So stop making excuses and do it. Screw New Year’s resolution. If you want it, go get it. Because think about it: Every time you wait for the New Year is another 12 months down the drain.
So… what is your excuse?
