Into The New Chapter: 2015

As the night faded away, so did all the all the minutes, hours, days, weeks and months. We have turned another page. A new chapter of life has begun; the first day of 2015, January 1st is here.

2014 was a common year; there were 365 days that we lived through. Personally, it was a 365 days of revelation, of learning and of growing. The struggles that taught and willed me to be strong, and convinced me of my capabilities to survive on my own through many trying times to come. Of course, we all need that few important people in our lives for their support and encouragements to be able to trudge through the hardship moments. And I definitely really know who they are! The few individuals that will stand by my side through thick and thin; lending a hand when I need them, pulling me up when I fall, urging me on when I lag behind and cheering with me during good times.

Watching certain individuals walked their lives throughout the year, I learned too.

The very significant lesson was to know what and who is important to you in life. Once you have identify these two, life becomes less complicated. We do not have to concern ourselves if it does not fall into these categories. When you live your life to your own expectation, and not to someone else’s; and you do not care of what people think of you and only focuses on what you want to do, happiness is easier to attain. A much better quality of life to live.

In doing this, you will realise who have been using you as their stepping stones; no, make that their zombie army, to get things done their way for their personal gain. You have no value to this kind, they are ready to slaughter you anytime just so they can cover and cushions their asses! Calling and claiming you with a better name to your face; their friend, their family but truth is, you are that useless, brainless zombie that can be thrown into the fire once you suddenly sprout a brain and realisation sets upon you.

Do yourself a favour. Kindly and quietly remove yourself away from these Decepticons. They will eat your brains, your souls and everything there are to you until you fall into oblivions and forgets that you are an individual with a life of your own. Follow your own path. Watch them unfold the untold stories themselves. Maybe, you can get the popcorn ready too. Make sure to add in plenty of butter and caramel if you do. Self-destruction is common when priority is misplaced. So it might turn out to be a good show afterall.

There were plenty of good stuff happened that tipped the scale to a positive 2014 too. All those little things mattered. Counted my blessings instead. Visited a place out of a whim, Nepal, and thank you to my friend for the generous vacation. Experienced high altitude sickness; it was no fun but it was an experienced not to be missed. Having Rocket in my care was a great finish to close the chapter.

Knowing that I do not have to stoop to begging to make things happen, need not lie and cheat nor trample upon any individuals along the way to achieve my goals in life – that sets my inner peace free. Happiness is all I seek, and I found them abundantly throughout the year.

2015: May this year be filled with happiness, love, understanding, good health, prosperity and bright throughout. Whatever this year have in store for me, I only know that I will make it through and taking it all one day at a time.

Wishing you a great, adventure-filled Happy New Year! Cheers to yourself and life!

Shopping Time

Christmas, the jolly holiday with music, sweet smell of cinnamon fills the air and pretty decorations in the neighborhood and the malls. It’s the time of the year that brings out the generosity in us. Time to give and time to receive, too. Giving our loved ones some presents as part of the traditional Christmas. So, what have you got in mind?

For those who are into musical instruments, you can get some hot deals online. There’s plenty of sales ongoing starting from the Black Friday onwards. Everything with a click of the mouse. Some would prefer to go to the malls and touch and tries on everything. Plenty of ways to shop for Christmas presents nowadays, almost no boundaries for things that you might want to fill the socks with.

Whatever rocks your boat, happy shopping! Just don’t go overboard with the shopping :)

It’s Not Rocket Science…

..it’s just Rocket, the newly adopted Shih Tzu!

It’s been a while since I have any pet to look after, until Rocket came along. He was dragging his feet/bum to move around, because of the disability with his hind legs. The pet shop where he was from gave him away for adoption because no one would want to buy a disabled dog, so, I took him in. He is named Rocket by my best friend, because we hope that Rocket will run as fast as a rocket soon.

He is now able to run, so I hope that with frequent walking and running around, his defective hind legs will improve. He was all dirty in the picture because he was having so much fun playing around outdoor. Despite his disability, he is still a playful one, just like any other Shih Tzu.

Welcome to my home, Rocket.

Feels Like Christmas …

December, and yes, Christmas is just around the corner. Have you got your Christmas decorations up? It’s about the only thing that will make it feels like Christmas here in our part of the world. No snow to make the snowman, but hey, there’s that decorations that we can use to keep up with the spirit of Christmas!

However, ornaments nowadays can be pretty expensive. Might as well get those personalized ornaments if you have the means. Why not, it’s a once a year kind of celebration when we all can be merry! On the other hand, it is a good time for DIY projects too.

Above all that, do remember, Christmas is not about the decorations, not the presents, but it’s about remembering the birth of Christ : the goodwill among all, peace on earth :) Have a joyful, blessed Christmas.

Hiccups

The point in your life where you are experiencing the incessant hiccups; damn heartbreaking!

Longing to do what you love, watching your friends doing it and surrounded by the sound of them encouraging, urging each other to go on.

I miss my trainings. Seriously.

Hiccups in life… Forcing a person to re-evaluate priorities. A harsh reminder that we can’t have everything.
