Right until the start of 2013 I used to mark every year by its memories or major events. Without getting into the political war that’s been ripping my country apart, after finishing college it became harder to mark the events of each year. I can look at pictures all I want, relive the moment or not, as sometimes the details would slip through my mind.
So, at the end of 2012 I made a decision to make sure to remember all the little good things that happened the following year, because I believe there’s something good in each single day. Got a nice notebook and got writing since day one. In addition to writing what good thing happened during the day, no matter how small, I wrote something about myself as well. It could be a trait, how I got through a tricky situation, a characteristic that needed developing or even developing a new one.
When I look back at 2013, I see many tragedies, ones that melt the heart which can make anyone resentful, but when I read that notebook I made, I feel that there was also good beside the bad. It’s only a matter of what you choose to see =)
