There’s something incredibly hopeful about a fresh start. Somehow, a scrubbed house smells like a fresh start. Life is like a book. Some chapters are sad, some are happy and some are exciting. But if you never turn the page, you will never know what the next chapter holds. As for me, I’ve burnt my life’s book. No more chapters. Just vibes.
You may have a fresh start any moment you choose. Because this thing called ‘failure’ is not falling down but staying down. Respect your parents. They passed school without Google. Isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet? I mean, it’s nice to think but I’m too busy making mistakes that will last a lifetime. Seriously, I hope she doesn’t keep the baby.
Take the first step in blind faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step. You might miss your step but that’s okay. Falling down the staircase is not fatal, according to my sauces. The problem with motivation is that you’re only fired up for a few seconds. If I could wish for a superpower it would be super-speed. To complete all that my five second motivated self allows me.
Eat healthy. You know when you buy a bag of salad and it gets all brown and soggy? Cookies don’t do that. Here’s to having a fresh start at binge eating, boozing and slacking off. I’ll try to stay off soda this year, hopefully it takes a hint and stays away from me. It’s difficult to maintain a healthy diet when all healthy food tastes like sorrow. If grilled turkey is the reason I don’t get to experience long life then so be it.
Be beautiful. Beauty is also about the way you move, speak and express yourself. Sometimes, the way some of you talk is boring and ugly. Fix up. Beauty is also about good health, warmth, spontaneity and charisma. Now take a long hard look at yourself, are you beautiful?
I don’t know where I’m going from here but I promise it won’t be boring. Wake up early. Drink coffee. Work hard. Be ambitious. Keep your priorities straight, your mind right and your head up. Do well, live well and dress really well. Do what you love, love what you do. It’s time to start living. You’ll be dead soon.
Fake it till you make it. Too easy for your boss to fire you. Then find a new job and start faking all over again. To improve is to change. To be perfect is to change often. Today I close the door to my past, open the door to my future, take a deep breath and step into a new life. If at first you don’t succeed…
then skydiving definitely isn’t for you
