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!
