I'll miss 2006


2006 has been good to me in more ways than I can imagine. It has been rewarding, enriching, and ultimately, a huge personal triumph. Amazing how so little achievement can make oneself feel so good.

No, I don't have any terminal disease I have to deal with. I didn't have any personal tragedy of gigantic proportions to overcome. I am not forever running away from Ah Longs. To just about anyone, I had a life as normal as can be.


However, personally, this is the year I turned the corner. The human mind is too good a thing to waste. I was about to waste away my own life - with negative thoughts, and a total sense of personal negativity in 2004 and 2005. My life was just wrong, in my mind. But really, I had so much going for me, and was blind not to see that ...

Well, events late in 2005 made me rethink about my own outlook and approach to life. I lost my optimism, got myself drowned in work, and never really recovering from personal issues I've had in the past. I decided in the first few days in January 2006, that I was not going to accept that I have to go through life with that sort of pessimism in me.


Negative thoughts were abandoned there and then. And I started to build a more positive and cheery outlook.

It wasn't easy, and it didn't take a short while. I only really embraced positivity as my approach to life in August, after some deep, probing questions were thrown to me.

So, what's so good about 2006 ?


Well ...

The travel's great ... Beijing, Pulau Perhentian, Hong Kong, Sydney, Auckland, Melbourne, Manila and Hanoi ... that's more places than some people have been to in their entire lifetime. I should be (and I am) so thankful for that. And that's beside the staple of Singapore and Bangkok ...


The blogpals are great ... angeliu, pelf, inevitable, cik epal, che-cheh, jems, cheng sim (still around or not, cs?) ...


New vehicle is good too, but not so good for the pocket ... still makes me happy though ...

Moz became a happy soul ...

And what's in store for 2007 ? And btw, these aren't resolutions, they are goals and principles for living happy ...


More of the same ... to keep being positive and happy. Happy or sad, life goes on ... might as well make each day a happy one !

To work myself back to my previous fitness level ... you only have one body. Better take care of it now while it's still in relatively good order.

And to keep the smile permanent ... if ever I get wrinkles, I want happy wrinkles !!!

I love you all !!! Happy New Year 2007 !!!

In 2007, remember… life is short, break the rules, forgive quickly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably & don’t regret anything that made smile.

HUGS!

Mistaking it for frost on the ground,
Looking up, I see the moon,
Looking down, I think of home ..."
