It’s 2011 :)
Just another ordinary day, actually :) It’s just that we humans have a need to review our lives every year, and list down hopes and resolutions, and January 1st had been chosen to mark this moment :)
Spent the New year’s eve with some close friends, going to movies, eating out, and having fun at Bundaran HI, joining hundreds of Jakarta people in a firework euphoria, which dissolved instantly with the last firework vanishing in the sky. Poof! and suddenly it’s a normal day again :)
I’m proud to say that i survived 2010 :)
There were ups and downs, achievements and disappointments, all the unpredictable moments, and here i am, still living and breathing normally and blogging on the first day of 2011 :D And i’m really thankful for that.
If i had this turning-back-the-time supernatural ability, i would play the happy moments over and over and rewind some moments to be fixed here and there, and maybe even pause some moments i would love to live in forever. I would’ve done this, I would’ve done that, I should’ve be here, I should’ve be there, I shouldn’t say this, I shouldn’t say that, and the list goes on and on.
But sadly i don’t have such power :) Life goes on and all i can do is trying to keep my pace steady so i wouldn’t stumble to the ground.
I give up making resolutions this year, because basically, my resolution every year is a cliche, to be a better person, which, i do hope, i have accomplished this year :p A friend once quoting Woody Allen to me, “If you want to make God laugh, tell him about your plans” :)
What will be 2011 like? I don’t know. Whether it’s gonna be a good year or a bad one, let us live to the fullest, have regrets and satisfactions, feel bitter and sweet, happy and sad, be simple and complicated, because all of these make us human. Let’s hope we can survive one more year, together :)
Happy new year everyone! :)
