A Year Older - Hopefully Wiser


It's time of the year again where I celebrate another year of my existence in this world. The year 2017 has been both great and frustrating for me -- and this time as another year starts, I want to immerse myself into a more positive vibes and I want to have more grateful moments than sorrows. I’m thankful to my God for all what He has done in my life, most importantly for giving me the privilege to enjoy another year in good health and happiness.


2017 for me started rough, as it marks the first time of my life that I chose to be independent and told myself to take more risks in life. I moved out of my comfort zone and tried to venture on to new endeavors in life on my own. I can't fathom the fact that a lot of things happened and changed in my life last year, both good and bad - and it made me realize a lot of things.


LEARNINGS AND REALIZATIONS

Life is really too short not to enjoy and to be filled with regrets; yes, i know not all our decisions end up great, but that's the risk that we have to take for us to live our lives to the fullest. Life consists of ups and downs and its up to us if how are we going to face the challenges of every day head on or surrender and just continue to do nothing about it.

If only we could turn back time and correct all our mistakes and make it right - but life does not work like that -- things could've been simpler and less complicated; but we just have to move on and take every day head on and start anew. Take all the learning you had as you face every hurdle and achievements in life.

Don't be afraid to make mistakes, to fail and to be disappointed in life, these are things that will make us stronger and be more eager to pave our way to success, and to motivate ourselves to become better.

Now, I’m truly humbled to have so many wonderful people in my life. I’m just so overwhelmed with gratitude for the amazing people I am so very blessed to have in my life and call them my friends and family.


ASPIRATIONS

As i turn 26 now, I wanna take on new challenges and strive hard to make myself better. Stop turning my back to the past and move on to the future with high hopes and attracting more positive vibes in my life -- and aspire to become a better person and make the most out of everything I have now. It's another year to become wiser and more cautious in making decisions in life. Time to be more mature and take things more seriously now. 

Stay Humble always and work hard for your success.
Live life to its fullest with no regrets.


BEING GRATEFUL

I remind myself every year on this special day how blessed I am to have been given another year to experience the wonders of this beautiful world! God is really good. I just want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who became a vital part as I continue to live in this lifetime; I want to thank my family for always being there for me - to the support they give in every thing I do and for making me feel grounded all the time.

I also want to thank all my friends - especially to my blogger friends, #TukmolNation Represent! haha who gave me a sense of belongingness and accept me as me and made me part of their lives. I am grateful that you stick with me through good and bad times.
