Prosaic soliloquies performed by a quixotic person

A New Leaf

with 8 comments

Today marks the beginning of a new year in the Islamic calendar. Concurrently, the Gregorian calendar will turn a new cycle in less than a month. And this is when the citizens of the world will open up a new chapter. Well, some of us might be getting stuck on the current chapter even after the year ends or have a long way to go before making a move to the next fresh page. And as for the other group of folks, the case is otherwise. Undoubtedly and unfortunately, I’m of the former. Why? Because I’m a perfectionist and a postponer simultaneously. In other words, I care enough to do things right, but I am lazy enough to let the little things go. However, I think I have pulled that one off quite well seeing as I’ve all intentions of completing my daily tasks, but can never seem to get off my lazy fanny and do them.

And I suppose, being what I am is one of the reasons why when every time reality hits me hard in the head, I feel worried and amazed by how rapid time goes by and how the changes keep on changing real fast. There are scores of things to accomplish and yet too little time to do them. And one of those tasks is my year 2010 resolution (and of the years before). See, I’ve less than thirty days before this year ends and I still have not taken any action on this year’s pledge (let alone past years’). I can clearly see in my mind that my KIV-ed resolutions have been accumulating thick layers of dust and cobwebs (thus creating an antique look) during the past three-sixty odd days. Shame, oh shame.

On the other hand though, why should we signify the first day of each year as the day of our rebirths, when in actuality, a New Year’s day is just like any other day?
