Have You Made Your List?


In the eve of the new yea: HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERY BODY...When a year come to end ,we start-even subconsciously-to prepare a list about the events of the passing year ,and the things we wish to have next year..

Some of you may deny it:I don't do such a thing! But believe me ,some how we all do..

Some of us would say:The last year was the worst in my life.Some would say it was the happiest...Some would simply shrug their shoulders and smile...But we all make a list..

When we were children,we make a list of what our parents prevent us from doing because we were (little)and we make a list of what to do next year because we will be (bigger)

Teen agers would make a list of how many time they got their heart broken,how many times they felt love ,or got suppressed by the evil adults.

Adults would make a list of work achievements ,needs that were met and needs that weren't ,and what is the plans for the coming year to meet them..

The people fascination about making a list appears even strongly in the news and TV programs...They always present a list of all the major events over the last year ..

We are creatures of habit ,and one of our important habbits is making lists..

You ask me abou my list?

My list is like every body else's..

As we all do,at first i thought of all the bad things that happened...Then i reconsidered ,Actually,i had an interesting year,Not a very good one,i'm still struggling to put my foot on my destined road(still have no idea where will this road will take me),i had to make difficult chices,very difficult actually i'm still trying to cope with..But i had to..

In that sense my year would sound really bad,specially we have this tendency only to remember the bad things..But indeed there is a lot of good things...

Although most of my closest friends had left the country,and they are starting new lives thousands of miles away,i've never felt so blessed and thankful for having them..Their support and friendship was evident and strong..Perhapse i don't see them any more ,except when they come in their rare vacations,but they are here,if you understand what i mean...

I also had the good trip to Dubai to remember.Yes i had to go there for an exam and all,but it was a good trip to remember,and a good experience to have..

I also earned the respect of my colleagues at work,this a good thing considering the work environment we have here..

Yes ,i still have so many things to do,but i will always do..

Yes i made my BAD list ,but i also made my GOOD one too..

In the new year, I hope things will be better ,and i pray for my parents ,family ,friends and all the best of it..

I pray for the peace of mind,for the dreams to be fulfilled ,for the sins to be forgiven ...And for those haunting memories of difficult decisions we had to made to become acceptable by our restless souls..

For all ,Happy new year..

Bless you all

Regards
