With just 4 days til the new year dawns, it’s hard not to reflect on how the year 2009 went and what to anticipate of 2010. Do I feel a burst of excitement about 2010? Hmm…. perhaps I could do with more. Year 2009 was tough, from the very beginning right til the end (well…considering the fact that I still have a few more days to go……. I hope things will change for the better *fingers crossed*) So, am I hoping for a ‘twist of fate’ in 2010? Yup! You can definitely bet on it!
I started 2009 with a pledge to LOVE. In loving, this means the giving of myself unconditionally, looking out for the people I love and care about- always ready to sacrifice for the betterment of others. I can’t say I succeeded 100% at this but I can say that I tried. This time round, I want to try something else. I want to turn that direction of love to myself. Yup! You read me correctly. I want to love myself more this coming year. I realized that many times, I give too much of myself for others that I deprive myself of love. In saying so, I am blessed with great friends who shower me with this love and I am forever grateful for them. But if I don’t start showing myself love, what will I have left to give to others? When there is an outflow, there must be a steady inflow to maintain balance, right? So yeap! I’m determined to work on the betterment of myself this coming year =) This starts with healthier living! Diet, Exercise, …the whole package! *smirk* May this post serve as a reminder in times of weariness. =)
So what awaits me around the corner? Well, I’ll just have to wait til then.
