Light Upon Us
Every year, when the last day comes near, I ask myself the same simple question, am I where I pictured myself to be? And the answer is always a straight no. Don't get me wrong, I am truly grateful for what I have accomplished and I feel blessed to be where I am today. But you know, life has its way of twisting and turning every path we take, somehow it seems like one plus one doesn't always equals two, and A,B,C are not always followed by D. One thing is certain though, that whenever a door closes, somewhere a window is opened. It might sound too idealistic, but I do believe that with perseverance and strong will, we are capable of turning the path a bit closer toward what we have dreamed of at the beginning.
To me personally, 2012 has been quite an exhilarating ride, both family and career wise. I have faced motherhood to unknown measures, took huge steps and risks, heartily embraced all possibilities that had came before me and in the same time plunged into wide open sea even when the tides showed signs of storm. Most of all, I now understand the true meaning of time. That it stops for no one and you will never get to that place you dream about unless you work your way through and make the most of the time you have now. Seriously, they weren't kidding when they tell you to live in the moment, because that is exactly how I plan to live my life from this day forth. No matter how many surprises life has in store for me.
And as always, this blog has been such a wonderful place for me to share my thoughts and dreams. So, my deepest thanks to all of you who have followed my journey until this very day, and for being such wonderful friends throughout the years. I sincerely cherish your friendships and I hope we will continue to grow together in many years to come.
So may light shines upon us today and keeps us guided all the way through. Wishing you peace, love and hope for a better year, tomorrow.
