Every year after Christmas, days before the New Year I use to review myself what I had done for the year, see what goes right, what goes wrong , how I perform, did I felt right, did I dictate myself , did I being selfish and hurts others?. Later I normally put up a resolution for the next year.
My blog on New Years poem post I posted on 1st January this year title:-
“Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining!”
I wrote :-
“The path we walk was long, but we walk with a song.
There were fears and tears, but we also had reasons for cheers.
No matter how great the turbulence it gets!
We know that we will see it through!"
At that time my feeling some how was down due to my niece fighting her 3rd stage of cancer. She passes away this year July.
I was preparing for the pain, but somehow as the poem I wrote I found the cheers, understand and happy the reasons she live in this world although pass away in a young age.
I learn from this experience is important beginning of the year to resolute move forward rather than allow the external circumstance in control my life.
Beside my emotional state this year, what I regretted most is less time spend with my family, using making $ as lame excuses of no time. Although my daughter do well in her studies I should not take for grated she will be same next year. Next year more time with my family will be my main priority
This morning I receive an email on all good quotes.
Good for me one by one review myself how much I put on this year, than again set I mentally well for next year.
The email quotes I received:-
Gratitude opens the heart.
Among friends there are no good-byes.
We cannot always do great things in life, but we can do small things
with great love.
The organs weep the tears the eyes refuse to shed
The important thing is this; to be ready to sacrifice what you are for
what you could become.
A ship is safe in harbour - but that's not what ships are for.
What is to give light must endure burning.
Our prayers are always answered - it's just that God sometimes says no.
That you should find your happiness.
Dreams are where your realities are exchanged for infinite
When all is said and done - more is said than done.
Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.
We may give without loving, but we cannot love without giving.
Faults are thick when love is thin.
I will fully make use this few days, recharge myself, ready again for next year, after all we should enjoy for journey in life.
One of my wishes for year 2007, SCB fully recover.
Happy Boxing Days and " HaPPy New YeAr
