End of the year

It's the end of the year
And the start of a new decade

Hope for the best
Be a doer and not only a thinker
Stay calm, Forgive and Forget
Trust yourself
And try to leave your job, your class, your room, your world a little better than the way you found it
That should do it.

Paradigm Shift

"When a paradigm shifts, everything hits zero" - Joel Barker

While used scientifically in this phrase, it can be generalized into any arena. It's a simple statement and hence, more powerful.

A shift in paradigm is a change in attitude towards an idea, entity etc. An ability to change your view including your perception is not a trivial task. But once achieved, it's tantalizing. Truth or the aysmptotic road towards the truth however bitter is priceless.

Once a paradigm shifts, you start from scratch. A lush valley to be shaped, a lake to be transformed, a mountain to be climbed.

Some choose to transform it, shape it and climb it. Some never reach it. Some refuse to change their paradigm and stay clogged to their ears, eyes and minds. Some stray free and some after reaching the valley, the lake, the mountain, choose to let it be.

Some days, some people make decisions.
They seem harsh. Crude. Emotion-driven.
Motivated by hatred. Anger.
The next day when it all comes down to.
It's refreshing. Wonderful.

How a day makes a difference.

It is not the length of the day.
It is the comfort in the mind.
The inevitability of the circumstance.
The immovability of the decision that prompts.

A breaking of a friendship with one.
Tragedy occurs.
A slow kindle is blazed.
Celebration begins.
They go hand in hand.

This decision is fueled by wisdom.
Much sought after but rarely realized.
Kudos to them who have such realization, such wisdom, such patience.

Discretion between such wisdom and a random action is a skill.
A wisdom in itself, requiring such qualities as well.
Kudos to them who have such discretion, such wisdom, such patience.
