A feeling a person has, usually comes with a thoughts of something he/ she really wants to happen, most of the times that person do not think in rational way but that dose NOT mean he /she is wrong.
Thinking of the future with reasoning thinking and having the present events on your mind.
Most of the times, at the beginning of every year people talk about the things they will do and that is a good thing, but I think they usually over estimates their abilities and that is the reason people usually get disappointed from themselves. I think people either over estimate their abilities or under estimate the length of one full year.
I think people, included me should be more realistic when planing their new year. If they did not change any behavior in the past year,most likely they won’t have drastic change in their lives, in one year. I am not suggesting people lose hope. I do not agree with that idea at all.
I think there is a difference between being realistic, having hope or just hopeless. Sadly most people merge the two meanings as one. I think it is great thing to have hope as long as a person do not mix hope with his expectations, especially about himself.
In my opinion, it is a good thing to have hope about everything in life but I think a person needs to be realistic when planing the way of living for the new year. I like planing for long trim. I think when a person except too much from himself, he most likely will get disappointment. I think when a person is realistic with his planing, he plans what he really capable, to do in one year, he won’t be discourage or disappointment.
