I was planning to write my customary New Year’s Day post yesterday but obviously, I didn’t get around to doing it thus the title. I was trying hard to sleep for more than the 4 hours I’ve been getting every day the last week. I didn’t succeed.
2012. It was one of the toughest years I have had. Losing a job I’ve held for a long time, finding one that took considerable time to learn and getting used to, and trying to adjust my personal life with my new job. It was crazy.
This would explain my inactivity in the blogsphere (not that I was very active even before). There were moments when I get urges to write but at the time I was too busy to and when I do get the time, I don’t feel like it anymore. I even missed (forgot, actually) my Christmas greeting post. I am sad about that. I’m also sad I neglected both my traditional and digital journals.
I was tired. It may just be because I’ve been having a hard time getting to sleep and am short on energy. I don’t feel the usual high I do during the holidays. I even said last week at work that I can’t wait for the holidays to be over so I can get enough rest. Not the usual me. Don’t wonder if this New Year’s post is the blandest I’ve done since I started this blog.
Despite that, 2012 still was good to me. I got through the challenges life threw at me. The results may or may have not been the best and I’m sure I could have done better (and more) but it doesn’t matter. I got through the year well and without any disabling cuts and bruises both physically and emotionally. A good year all in all.
So 2013. I am hoping that it won’t be as tiring as last year. I hope for a more stable new year.
A colleague asked what our resolutions were and I answered that I don’t do resolutions and I prefer goals. He said he preferred resolutions because it comes from the word “resolute”. I guess that got to me a bit. So my goals are the still the same. All were not short-term ones and all are works in progress. Some have progressed really well and some have not. But I now have one New Year’s resolution. It is that I try my hardest to progress all my goals to the level most desired. Level 100. Lol.
I am really hoping I could get more writing done in 2013. I really do. I recently recontracted with my network provider (got the iPhone 5 which I’m using to write this) and got unlimited data and I might get a tablet soon too. That should help me write when I feel like it anytime.
Happy new year! I wish everyone enough of everything. Sending everyone much love, prayers and lots and lots of positive vibes. Cheers!
