Goodbye 2016

December 31, 2016 in Kids / Marriage / Musings

I’m so not ready for 2017 but can’t wait for 2016 to be over.

It’s been a pretty rough year for many including myself. I try my best to count my blessings and not give unnecessary attention to the negative issues. In the past year or so..

I learned how strong I can be, because motherhood changes many things. Not so much the physical strength, but the mental strength!

I learned that marriage is constant hard work. In this day and age, I guess we ought to be thankful both of us are willing to work at it.

I learned to love myself more, which translates to happier mom / wife = happier children / husband! Milestone achieved in 2016 – I went on my first holiday with girlfriends to catch our idol, 张学友 in action at his concert!

I learned to be less hung up or 执着 over many things when I see how fragile life can be, especially in our chaotic world now.

I learned who are my dear friends who will give me unconditional support, whenever I need some.

I learned not to be bothered by people who don’t matter. This liberation comes with age, I suppose. 😉

I don’t believe in New Year resolutions anymore because I’ve come to realise that any time is a good time to change for the better. But I do have hopes for the New Year!

I hope to have more time for my new hobbies –

painting

and lettering.

I hope to have more meaningful time with people who matter to me. Basically, I think I’m just hoping for more than 24 hours in a day in 2017.

I hope for a merciful 2017. What goes around comes around –  let’s share more kindness and love around.

May good health, peace and joy be with us all. Have a blessed 2017 ahead!
