First of all, happy new year everyone! I am all glad that actually the Mayans were wrong about the end of the world. Haha.
Anyways.. new year means new hopes, new dreams, new chapter of life. We’re opening a new beginning again.
Whatever happened in the past year belongs to the account of the past, we can never get it back. So here we are now, standing straight in the first day of the new year. Have you got some sort of things you wanna do or achieve in this coming year? Oh well, before going too far about the resolutions for the new year, let us stop for a little while and ask ourselves this one question: what lessons did you get from last year’s experiences?
There were 365 days last year, and I believe there’s got to be lots of things we happened to experience. Some were good, nice and you just dont want to forget. Maybe something very memorable and unforgettable like the great time you spent with your loved ones, great opportunities to be exposed to many kinds of blessings and many others. Some were bad, very bad that you think that they are better to be erased from the account of your life forever.
Whether good or bad, you know they belong to the past. They are just here no more, they are nothing but memories written in your book. They will be there forever, they are part of you ever since you got them. Not a single miracle could ever get you back, not a single chance you could ever take them back to your hand.
But here you are now, a new day, a new start.
Looking back should never get you down. Instead, looking back should help you stand taller, and start to be thankful as you look around. Because at the very core, you learned after all.
We all, ordinary people, should learn this one thing better every day: letting go off the things we have no power to change. Of the past, we no longer have any power to fix. But you take the lessons with you for the rest of your life.
It is freaking hard to let go. It really is. How do I know? I am actually in the middle of it.
Life is a journey that has to be walked forward, not backwards. And after all, we all need to die to one life to enter another, said Anatole France.
Forgive and keep moving forward.
Happy new year 2014.
Bye, 2013. I learned a lot.
Hello, 2014. Bring it on, I am all yours.
