New year, new beginning. You get to hear a lot about new year resolutions. Are you one who makes new year resolutions?
New year resolution, in many ways, is no more than just a thought. A nice thought. A thought on what you think you would like to do or change and you make use of the new year to name, if not start it. However, this thought is usually being given very little thought behind, which explains why so many new year resolutions never happen. More often than we would like to admit, these seemingly important thoughts eventually become mere forgettable thoughts and resolutions as the year is no longer as new.

When the tides are quiet and calm, we can stay on the surf boards easily even when we don’t pay much attention. However, when tides change, we need to be mindfully and firmly grounded and balanced on the surf boards. Otherwise, we will get swept away by the change in tides, let alone surfing them.
