IndiSpire #42: 10 things you want to dump this year and start fresh next year !...
The year is about to end and the first thing that comes to mind while approaching the New Year is the resolutions that you make for the next year. Of course, a new year also means that you can dump behind a few things that you think are acting as a barrier in leading an improved or good quality of life.
People make several promises to themselves every beginning of a new year and yet most of them are not accomplished. Well, I do come under the category of people only. This is because it is difficult to act upon something that you think. It always has been. But still, if you are able to come up with even 10 percent of those promises, you are actually moving somewhat forward. So what’s the harm?
Following are the 10 things that I want to dump this year and begin afresh the coming year. I don’t know how many of them will I be able to dump actually but yes I will try because in some way or the other, all these 10 things are probably not good for me and my life.
Hyperactive Fission of Thoughts
I think too much. Way too much. I can’t remember even a couple of minutes in the past few years when my mind was as serene as the still sea. The thoughts are not particularly positive or negative, waste of time or productive and whatsoever. The issue is that they are always there and that’s not a good thing. So, I want to try and give some peace to my mind.
I have written a story. People won’t like it.
I should apply in this company. I won’t be able to come up with their requirements.
I might excel if I do that. No it won’t work.
I should tell her about my feelings. She will stop talking to me.
I want to stop. I want to banish this negativity inside me. I want to look at the positivity of things.
Not Kick-Starting My Book
I’m done. The next year, I’m definitely coming up with a concept and I am kick-starting my first book. Now, this can be really difficult but I’ll make sure I start writing and probably if possible finish off as well. This is high time. I must start now instead of worrying about how it will come up to be.
Nuclear Blast of Emotions
No! There’s no need of over-emotional guys in this world. I should start taking things more casually and easy. So far, it has only proven fatal and I must give up if I have to survive with this generation. No room for emotional fools.
Over the Top Caring for People like I’m the Hero of a Movie
Most of them don’t deserve it. I have learnt that. All I need now is to overcome this bad habit of mine. At the end of the day, people forget what you have done for them. It’s not that I want something in return, but at least look back at me, say hi and ask me how I’m doing when notice me standing close to you. At least, don’t show me a face that I never existed. At least think about me before you move over me all of a sudden.
Attaching Myself with Every Other Person like they don’t have Anyone Else
Once you are my friend, all your worries are mine. No, you don’t need to be my girlfriend for me to behave like that nor you need to be my best friend. I simply would love to help you in any confusion you have and any matter you want to discuss. This point is actually separated from the previous one by a thin line. It is actually this point that leads to the above in some time period.
Two-Faced Persona unlike Harvey Dent
Not the happy-go-lucky-from-outside-and-cunning-inside kind of. I’m talking about showing a happy and content face to others even when on the inside, I’m ripped open. You might never know till I reveal to you that I’m actually dying. I don’t know the reason behind this temperament. It’s simply how I am. People often think that I’m one of those happiest guys who enjoys his life to full extent. Well, I’m not.
Researching Everything till I Fall Down
You can mostly limit it to the technology but I often include other things too. Don’t know why I feel that I should be having knowledge about everything and thus I keep reading about all sort of things. It’s a cloud 9 felling if you ask me and I know about it. It’s sickening when I don’t and it initiates a brief research which can expand to a detailed one if it interests me.
Bursting Anger (Hulk Smash)
Well frankly and truthfully, I can absorb all of it in most of the situations. But sometimes, I can’t control. No, I haven’t killed anyone nor do I intend to. It just burns inside me and occasionally finds its way out through my words in extreme situations. But that’s very rare. Usually, I don’t take it out but even then, it’s not good for me.
Dreams hurt. At least in my case. I know it’s essential for a writer to dream. Dreams open up a whole new possibilities to explore. But I want to stay away from dreams especially for some time. I’m broken and dreams are the cause. I should try to live in a real world. Life is not a fairy tale especially when someone points it out for you.
I don’t know if I can dump all these things outside my imaginary world but sure as hell, I’m going to try. Like I said, if I can even dump a little percentage, it will lead to a better and happier life. So, all the best to me and all the wishes to you for your resolutions.
