Today is the second day of 2017. We're still in euphoria celebrating New Year and working toward our resolutions. I hope you're going to do really well with your resolutions (whatever they are).
I spent my new year's eve by getting a phone call from a friend. We were talking for hours. By the clock striking 00.00 AM he said, "Happy New Year!" I smiled. I remember vividly what happened during last new year. A different person texted "Happy New Year" to me with the rest of messages that I still clearly remember what he wished for.
But, that's in the past. That was one year ago. Many things can happen in one year. Who would have thought?
Speaking of 2016 I read some blogs wrote that last year was depressing while others wrote 2016 gave them many wonderful things to be grateful. Here I don't want to talk about how I felt about 2016, hence, I don't really want to think about that. Here I want to write about impression.
Every thing can give us impression, including 2016 that we just spent. Human, obviously, gives us impression, too.
We, as a human, are a social animal. We will interact with other people. We will socialize with them. One of the things that we don't know is how other people will perceive us. What impressions that we just make? Do we make a good impression or a bad one? How they feel about us? Do they like us? Or hate us? Are they happy or irritated when we're around them? When we make mistakes will they forgive us? And, in the years to come, when life keeps us busy and distances us with other people, how are they going to remember us?
We are going to leave footprints in other people's life. So, my mission is I'm planning to leave nice footprints in others' life. It's difficult, I know. But, hey, I've got nothing to lose and I'm willing to try.
