Exactly one year ago, I wrote -
The old man said,
"People hate reality, people don't like common sense, until age forces it upon them."
It is still true.
I had made a wishlist and it was probably already embedded in my thoughts even before I wrote it down. I dont know how to feel, but I have not been off the mark on my own thoughts. I did all the things on that personal wishlist and I am still doing them.
So this brings me to this year's wishlist - which I am not going to make.
I am really confused by one of my wishes - to empathize more. Which I did and found it rather annoying sometimes when the one's I was trying to empathize with didnt appreciate it and reciprocated rudely. I dont care, but it set a few thoughts in motion. I wonder, why is it that the one tries to understand has the toughest time? Its not a duty or obligation, but its just an openness to different opinions and different ways of looking at the same stuff we go through everyday.
Although it doesn't bother much when I move on to the next thought and get consumed by it, so its hardly anything.
I think there is a sort of optimism or hope (for excuse to my poor vocabulary) about things in general. I have noticed apathy in my behavior with a fine mix with empathy. I dont know what it stands for, but its a new feeling. Maybe its the things happening in my life, a lot of wheels are turning and a lot of activity has suddenly kicked in.
As a last thought to part with this year, I do wish I can use some more time for thinking than stuffing my head with information.
Thinking has never been more fun.... can't have enough of it.
