Day 15 into the new year.
How is 2016 treating you so far?
Hope it's going well.
As for myself, it's a very shakey start this year. Emotional roller coaster. Family, work. Nothing seems to be going as smooth as I wanted it. I know we can't always get what we want but is it too much to ask for a not so stressful start to the year? Trying to stay as positive as I can.
I guess at times it helps to walk away and let things sort out by it's own. Too much worrying won't do any good.
Time to blast the song "Let it go"....

Powerful word.
Forgiveness is the intentional and voluntary process by which a victim undergoes a change in feelings and attitude regarding an offense, lets go of negative emotions such as vengefulness, with an increased ability to wish the offender well.

Easy to say that we must forgive and forget but definitely not easy to do.
It is not easy to let go of past painful experience. But is it worth the burden and sorrow? To put the blame and hold grudge against someone? Especially if it's a family member?

Learn to let go and forgive. Learn to be tougher from the experience. Learn to have compassion and love again.

And never underestimate the power of forgiveness.

2016 for better or worse?

Second day to year 2016. How time flies. I have this sudden urge to pen down a few words here. No, not for new year resolutions. Haven't had any since few years back.
New year means new beginning for many. It means a chance for us to throw away all the bad things and give ourselves a clean slate to start anew.
Yes, I am guilty of thinking like that. But in reality, everyday can be a new year. Everyday can be a fresh start.
Let's rewind a bit to 2015. A year of ups and downs. I have things to be grateful and things that I can't wait to flush out. I am grateful I still have a job, given the turbulence in the industry now but yet, I resent my job at times. I am grateful to have spent quality time with family, friends and loved ones but yet, I wish I had a chance to travel for work to a faraway land. I am grateful to have some holidays but I could have planned for a longer and more adventurous travel. I am grateful for good health but yet, I feel disappointed that we have not got what we hope for 2015.
So, ups and downs.
Year 2016 will be a challenging year. I can foresee that. Am I geared up to face it? Time will tell.
Happy New Year peeps and stay strong.
