JANUARY pretty much went by in a whirl. I decided on 2016’s theme. So far, so good.
You know, as I grow older, it’s not so much about “New Year, New Me” any more. I’ve learnt that the only thing constant in life is CHANGE. Change is NECESSARY and INEVITABLE. Sometimes, our circumstances force us to change, whether we like it or not. And sometimes, these changes give rise to discoveries about ourselves and/or others; they take us in a new direction, open us up to options we never considered before, make our lives better (surprise!!!!).
I’m changing every day. And I WANT to continue changing. I WANT to keep improving. I WANT to explore new options and be OPEN. Not rigid, boxy, inflexible…. but fluid, adaptable, malleable. Whilst I’m changing, I’ll also keep in mind that others may not agree with what I’m doing, and that’s OK. We all differ in opinion and we’re all entitled to our own. To force our opinions upon others, however, is a different matter altogether. That’s where respect comes in, right. I’ve learnt that I can respect your opinion without accepting it. This is a concept of relative importance cos it allows me to progress in life without being affected by what others are saying. :)
(Although I must confess that, at this moment, I’m feeling lost and confused as to where I’m headed – career (??), aim (????), purpose (??????). I need to FIND THEM. I’M LOST AS HECK, IS EVERYONE ELSE FEELING THE SAME????)
Anyways. It’s Lunar New Year next week!!!! Pretty sure it was Christmas Eve yesterday. ;) I’m looking forward to a few days off work, a short break. Some peace, quiet, hanging out would be nice.
In the meantime, I’ll keep on keeping on and work towards my goals day by day. The journey to success comprises good and bad days. Good days don’t last forever, but neither do bad ones. Bad days are there so you can compare them with the good ones; bad days are there so you can look back and say, “Hey, I’m a fighter too! I fought through the hard days to get to the good ones! I survived!”…. if you KWIM. :) It’s all part of the zigzagging road.
