“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language and next year’s words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning.” T. S. Eliot
Despite the challenges that our country will be facing in 2011, I am excited of the possibilities and eager to start things rocking and shaking. Around 30 minutes before 2011 came in, my family and I had media noche to celebrate New Year’s eve while watching ABS-CBN and GMA networks’ live coverage of the countdown.
Yesterday morning as I woke up, I reached out for my spanking new planner given by IBM, to start my vision for the new year. I opened the organizer and sniffed the smell of printed matter. Its pages are still blank. I know I am going to put words on them myself in the coming days. Yes, this is a book called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.
Yesterday at lunch time, Louie fetched me up to get me write scripts of copy-text for Sage Digital’s website and online advertisements. He also had me witness how he unwrapped his new 27″ Asus LED and ASUS laptop. He finished installing all software and removing bloated programs at past six o’clock in the evening.
We had dinner (North Park food delivery) and watched a movie (Good Will Hunting). Then, he went through his past goals and New Year’s resolutions posted on 43things.com and evaluated them before creating a new list for this year.
Somehow while he was going over tons of suggested goals of other people, I’ve thought of one goal I’d like to incorporate in my own list. This will remain secret until the end of the year. But because I’m so kind, I’ll leave you a clue:
“There comes a point when you get scared in life a little, when you want to stop dancing, but your feet move. And the music is so beautiful, and the tune is so upbeat and catchy that you can’t help but continue the steps. And your mind says ‘Are you crazy? You’re dancing with the devil.’ And you say ‘but at least someone will dance with me.’“
Another thing: I’ll stay true.
Next topic: People are getting antsy with numbers thinking that the dates 1-1-11, 1-11-11, 11-1-11 and 11-11-11 have meanings as well as the times 1:11 and 11:11. Since last year, I’ve been always seeing 11:11 whenever I look at my hand watch, the wall clock, the system [computer] time and even two side-by-side elevator floor numbers.
To quench my thirst of interest, I thought of finding what these mean over the Internet, and this is what I found out: Our earthly 1,111 Spirit Guardians, often called “Midwayers,” have been assisting folks of all walks of life for many centuries. 11:11 is like a wake-up call which our so-called “angels” use to prompt our innate ability for pattern recognition to let us know that they are here.
I don’t know if this is true, but sites say that when we see these numbers, we should vocally ask our spirit guides what they want to convey, and they’ll answer by showing us signs or going into our dreams while we’re asleep.
Sounds intriguing? Try it out yourself.
Tomorrow is back-to-work day.
Live long and prosper.
