HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
If you are reading this post, please do me a favor and comment with the phrase "Happy New Year!" in your Native Language and/or any language you know. THANKS!
To close 2011, my family and I will be spending the night in company with the relatives and the what not. Although sometimes tends to be somewhat of a dread by practicing silly rituals and other supersticious stuff that they seem to believe that magic will solve all problems.

What rituals or traditions do you practice? What is it so unique about those little things you do to welcome the new year?
I, in the other hand, have a set of "traditional" task I do to receive a new year. For instance, every three or so months, I would rearrange my room according to the season... specially move the bed closer or farther from the window (no A/C at home). In the process, eliminate the clutter by purging anything that is no longer of use to me; thus making a more efficient, multipurpose bedroom.

Another tradition of mine is to recycle everything recyclable, as much as possible... then exchange them for monetary compensation. But there are also some things that you could recycle differently or make use of old things in a completely different way. For instance, say you have some shoes that you rarely even use and they are in great condition... you may donate them or give them to someone who will make good use of them (wash them first of course). Giving back to the community, specially in these harsh weather patterns, is a tradition that will make not only someone else's life more bearable but also yours... and that feeling that you've done a good deed. GIVE BACK TO YOUR COMMUNITY! Be it with things that you have but don't use/need and are in a great shape, or volunteering your time and/or talents to improve it.
I have also seen first hand the hardship that one goes through when dealing with that burning desire to give back but the frustration of the financial limitations tend to crush our spirits... INSTEAD... you may offer your time by volunteering in Community Centers, or any other organization that fits with your talents. There are plenty to chose from, and there you might find just the right one for you. Don't get discourage, VOLUNTEER! Make it a resolution, a promise, a commitment.

What are some of your goals for 2012? What are your New Year's Resolutions?
Let's begin with the cliché of clichés ... one of my goals this year is to get rid of some poundages, pounds? how do you spell that... oh yeah, #'s! The reason for this goal is to gain and maintain a healthy weight, I'm not doing it for vanity or the likes... it is purely out of health. NO MORE SCARES! And in order to do just that, setting reasonable, reachable goals is key. For instance, instead of "Resolve" to lose a blunt set amount of pounds 'this year' ... break it down into shorter goals, for example: losing a couple of pounds weekly by controlling your portions at meals time, instead of starving yourself without the desired outcome.
Other goals for 2012 would be to make do more proficiently. To not let anxiety and insecurities overcome reason. Continue to give back to the community and those in need. Hone my talents and help others hone theirs as well. Make 2012 prosper by acting rather than wishing. Keep on track and don't deviate from what's really important, GOD AND FAMILY! Be a more sensible Theologian by scrutinizing the facts and reach a definite solution. Obtain Master Certification and thus spread The Ministry. Spread tolerance and awareness of the rich diversity of our community. Continue setting short and long term goals as the days progress, and not leave the opportunity for ONCE A YEAR. The key to success is to continue evolving and improving ourselves.
And with this I end the post...
HAPPY NEW YEAR AND A PROSPEROUS 2012 TO ALL!!!
