Rising Counter

Well, tonight is the new year’s eve! What a great relief. Finally I can celebrate my birthday again. Every time, the year number is rising by one. Never by more or less. That is the counter that we all know will happen and felt by us. Then, what does that counter means? It depends on you! What will you do in the future is depend on you.

One bible verse said that we have to keep aware and stay sharp for anytime, God may come and take us all. For anytime everything could happen. Well, that’s one of many things I can’t disagree from the Bible. Stay sharp is the thing we must do. No slacking around nor being so lazy.

Other, I ever heard from my lecturer, I. Liem, a phrase that inspires so many students. The counter may rise, but the behavior must be better. Well, she is right. I can’t disagree too. Well, this is confusing for so many people said that they will change this year. This year will be better or something. I did say things like that before. I do not say that now. Because, yeah, many things could happen. I can even hardly keep myself doing good in an hour, how can I promise in a year?! Such a lie!

Well, then another people said that the new year increasing counter means we have to use our days by having fun! It means our day is getting shorter! Soon we will be soil and eaten by worms! They also right. We can’t waste our time? Having fun is important, but more important is that how to make that fun last until we see our grandchildren.

New year is just a rising number. How we use it is a different case. Be great this year and have a great party!

PS. Don’t forget to gather with those you love.
