The Time of Year

By Fatima K - December 23, 2013

It’s that time of year again when people start rapidly planning for the next year and reflecting on the past year. It’s gone so fast! I remember New Year last year – a miracle really as I find it difficult to recall what I did yesterday! We spent the day in London and watched the fireworks on New Year’s Eve, it was brilliant!

I don’t actually celebrate New Year but I do like fireworks, so it worked out well for all of us! And now it’s back to that time where we decide what we’ll do on New Year this year!

I’m sure there have been some Delete Button moments in the past year for all of us – one of mine is writing ‘2012’ for most of the year because I still can’t get my head round the fact the it is no longer 2012; that’s right, my brain still makes me automatically write 2012! How I’m going to write 2014 is a mystery to me! There have also been very cringe-worthy moments, you know like the ones where you try to explain what you mean but in actual fact, you’re digging yourself into a deeper hole...awkward. You end up using the most unrelated and longest example and immediately after the words have slipped out of your mouth, you realise what you've said, and of course, what you should have said...most definitely awkward.

So I’ve decided to think before I speak, definitely before I give examples – hopefully this will stop me from saying ambiguous and silly things. :)

I’ve noticed that this time of year, for many, is a time to contemplate, reflect, plan and set goals. Whatever you decide to do, spend time with the people you care about and the ones that make you happy. Meet new people and get back in touch with those you haven’t seen in a while. Learn to forgive but don’t always forget. By not forgetting, you stop yourself from getting hurt that way again and by forgiving, you can get on with living your life. And remember, whatever happens, it’s your decision, so decide on what you think is right and will keep you happy.
