Only a single day left before we 2008 finally ends. Another year of failure and success is bound to take its exit in our lives. A great deal of events had happened during the last 364 days of this year. I graduated, left home, had a small business, stayed unmotivated to work, annoyed with monotony As I looked back, waves of mixed emotions swept through me, happiness, melancholy, emptiness, distrust and the list goes on. It’s all but natural to feel these things. We are humans after all, sensitive to every stimulus inevitable for us to stumble upon.
This year has not been that good enough for me. Or is it just me who made it that way? I felt reprehensible of everything that happened. Life could have offered me more if I have not been complacent of what I am. Nevertheless, I am still thankful for all the blessings I have received. Maybe I was just expecting too much that I fail to recognize life’s little pleasures.
With a deep sense of gratification, I am finally pining for another year of chances. The gaffes I have committed in the past should not impede me from moving forward, instead, it should have serve as a motivation for me to do better, to be more responsible with my career.
I have no regrets after all the blunders I came across. It made me immerge as a better person. I have lessons learned and plans laid out. However, I should not live with either the past or the future. I should live with the present, should live with "now".
Life goes on. Let us not be stocked with the past and welcome another year of prosperity.
