about new year

30 desember 2010

2010 is about to end. As December hit the last days. Many people had prepare for their own taste of countdown. Barbeque party. Fireworks. Luxurious night at an expensive hotel. Bir. Wine. Rave party. Outbound tour. Solitude moments at a mountain peaks. Midnight Mass. U named it. Its all about choices. Its all a matter of taste.   
Back then, when I was young this surely one of the great moment to be. Somehow I just need the party. Crowd, music, bir and everything that comes with it. I never really thought what is it all about. All I know it’s a moment of celebration. A new year to come. As the countdown turn the second into a new day. Nothing more.
And then, years later I knew that I might gone so wrong. Silly me.
No. there’s nothing wrong with the party and what so ever that others did. I only come to a conclusion. A big ones. Celebrating the new year is absolutely legal. But maybe we should look back on the days behind. As I wrote before, New year is just another day like any other say. What makes it special is just because its mark a new dawn. The first dawn of another 365 days to come.
As we leave the hundreds of days behind we should at least had done something, achieve something or earn something. A  moment to take a note for what we had done, how far we had gone, what we had achieve. A moment to evaluate about the goal we’ve set days ago. In other words, Introspection. And  more important is  to reset, reevaluate, and rethink our goals, plans, minds and system in order to repair our mistake, or at least minimize a fault to reach a better output. A better life,  as a better person. And this is where actually the celebration should take place. Celebrate an achievement. A success. Otherwise it’s just a moment of nothing.
Sadly, that’s was something I just realize recently. But somehow I should be grateful. At least I learn my lesson.     
So for the New Year eve to come, I’ll just stay in my rooms, watching the fireworks from my windows. Do the countdown with a glass of scotch- just a glass. And get away with a dream of hopeful tomorrow.
Happy New Year Everybody.
