Don’t be up­set! We still have an­other New Year

Global Times – Metro Beijing - - TWOCENTS -

I’m the kind of per­son who al­ways has a plan but sel­dom put it into prac­tice. So when I know that many peo­ple are the same as me, it’s re­ally a re­lief (A year’s worth of re­flec­tion,

Novem­ber 30).

Ev­ery De­cem­ber is my re­flec­tion month. I fi­nally have a chance to look back and re­view what I’ve done in the past year. Some peo­ple feel sat­is­fied, while many peo­ple like me feel a lit­tle up­set, be­cause it seems like I have had an­other plain year. I haven’t been pro­moted, I still strug­gle with morn­ing rush hour. I re­main sin­gle, and to top it off, I have no cat or dog to keep me com­pany in my house. Al­though I have made some achieve­ments, when com­par­ing my­self to other peo­ple, I still feel sorry for this year, and can­not help ask­ing my­self about my past year’s ac­com­plish­ments.

But I want to say that if you feel the same as me, it’s not a bad thing. It proves that we still have plenty of time to dream of a bet­ter life, and the fire in­side us is still burst­ing with flames. As the New Year is about to come, why not make an­other list of wishes and try to make them come true. Just do it. You’ll never know what is in store for you.
