‘When one door closes, two other doors open’… that is how I want to believe my life will move on from one year to the other from now onwards. Pretty weird for someone of my age, right? I know many people of my age will be looking at each passing year with lesser and lesser hope as we move closer and closer into our ‘twilight’ years. Frightening for many, but what’s the heck to feel this way.
I am feeling more positive about my life like never before not because I am running away from the hard realities of what life can be, but really I do feel on top of the world!
So if you were to ask me what’s in store for me in 2014, I would say that I will embrace everything about it with greater vitality, energy and hope. And why not? I’m the author of my life who writes my own life script.
I want to think this way because I somehow feel I’ve always been a late bloomer in almost every area of my life. I was late in passing my school examination, late in getting to university, late in getting a decent job, late in marriage, late in finding my life purpose and late in finding my fulfilment. If I extrapolate this fate of mine to my future years, it seems that there are many things owing to me, so to speak!
This is what I told myself, “I don’t want to make any resolution from this year onwards.” Why should I want to limit myself to one or two things to achieve for the year? I want to spread my wings to achieve more, to do more and to receive!
To me these good things will come true as long as I keep a good relationship with myself, the people in my life and God. I want to live my life inside out. Retiring for sure is out of my mind; more so now especially when I’ve recently built my second cosy home in Melbourne. There’s more energy in my life even now. I have two best of different w orlds, the best of the 4 seasons, best of multi cultures and richness in the diversity in my life.
I thank God for the life He is giving me and my family. My gratitude to everything that I have. And to the people who make it happen to me,
Happy New Year to you all and join me to welcome the new year with greater hope and vigour.
