If you look to others for fulfillment, you will never truly be fulfilled. If your happiness depends on money, you will never be happy with yourself. Be content with what you have; rejoice in the ways things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you. Lao Tzu
And so we say goodbye to 2010, and what better way to do it but to say thanks to all what has been. The last 365 days had been in more ways brought many blessings that brings smile thats always turns to a hearty laughter. Balancing these happy moments are challenges that always pokes and nudges to always reminds to be grounded and humble.
Everyday while driving to work, at the same spot where i always see the sun shines, i say my little prayer of thanks. Everyday i say something as simple as the light traffic ahead or as grand as finishing a deadline at work. Sometimes, it’s as simple as my decaf coffee or the slight drizzle fighting against the rays of the sun. When the manong honks so hard even when its red, or when the manong don’t want me to pass, i also say my thanks, it’s one way of making my patience quotient longer ; )
What a year it has been. Travel has been great especially that the first one was with the whole family in HK and the other one was made special by great friends when we travelled in SG! It was a first for the barkada and what a blast we had. Also visited Baguio when the stresses of the city crept in.
It was a struggle to keep the sugar in control. Exercise and diet seems not to do it but the persistence in me and of course the additional medicine i had to take made it work. I was just thankful that all lab tests and medicines are taken care of by the office. Hoping next year would be better.
2011 is the 1st year of the 2nd decade of the third millenium. It surely is a new beginning for new goals, new directions, new struggles, new friends and new moments enough to make 2011 an interesting, fulfilling and hopefully healthy year! It’s time to hop, hop, leap and leap!
