Perfectly OK 2010 NY Resolutions

I kinda stopped making resolutions when I realised that I'd either get bored of them, modify them, forget them or do the exact opposite. But today, I found this blog nicely named The Urban Monk Diaries and a specific post that simply made my day. Hope it'll do the same thing to you as well.

Much love, Sheens.

1. Throw away all the self-help books. Just observe what you always do in order to be happy. Stop doing it. Be happy

2. Don’t look for choices when you know the answer. If you don’t know the correct answer, having choices won’t help you anyway.

3. Don’t bother with the treadmill. The earth is falling through space 2.5 million km everyday at 30km/sec. That’s enough exercise for all of us.

4. Seek love, not porn. Its natural and you don’t have to master 182 categories

5. Don’t waste energy hating people. If the Sun finds them good enough to shine on every day, that ’s good enough for you.

6. Slow down. The scenery doesn’t become any better just because you are rushing.

7. Don’t strain your memory. See everything and everyone as new every day. That way, you’ll never be surprised with anything that happens

8. Reduce wear and tear on your brain cells. See things as they are, not as you wish they are or think they are.

9. There’s no need to chase money. 1 trillion dollars circulate the world every day. Just stand in its flow and you’ll get wet. Don’t try to drink the whole river; don’t stay outside the river and curse it.

10. Don’t waste time planning a perfect holiday. What you will achieve at best is a perfectly executed plan, not a perfect holiday.

PS : If this list gets lost, don’t fret. Wait for 2011
