It’s the first day of work for a lot of us. I’m pretty excited about this New Year. Never mind but I don’t have plans ahead but I guess I’m just looking forward to a better year.
2014 wasn’t ALL that bad for me but I guess there were still some better years for me though. And I’m truly determined to make this year MY year.
Just wanted to share this video clip with you guys. I know that this is a pretty old clip and probably some of you wouldn’t really like it but what the heck. It really sends out a good message for us all.
Count your blessings instead of counting sheep to fall asleep! 🙂
There will probably be a lot of times in your life when you will feel sad about the bad things that are happening in your life and it may be quite a struggle for you to remember all of the good things that you have. But let me tell you, from first hand experience, that yes it takes a lot of practice and courage to actually do this. I, for one, have been such a negative person in the past but with consciously, I had to train myself to always look at the brighter side of things.
So here are the things that I am thankful for:
This is probably the thing that I am most grateful for today. Although not perfect, I know that my family will always be there to love and support me.
I have lots of sets of friends – high school friends, college friends, work friends, new found friends. 😛 And I am amazed at the time that I was able to spend and meet up with them in the 2-week break that I had. This was really something different for me and something that I am truly grateful for. Imagine, I was able to see my High School Friends! 🙂 And one of my High School Friends, is here from Australia.
Also, one of my super close college friends is also back from the US. It was soo nice to get to meet up with them and to really talk about things that matter. As I was with them, it actually dawned on me on how much we’ve changed and how much our topics changed in the last few years. Yes, we’re mature already. 😛
And new found friends! Thank God for them because if it hadn’t been for them, I wouldn’t have changed an outlook in my life. 😛
And even if I do complain a lot about work. Or get really stressed about work. I still wouldn’t imagine my life without work. I’ve met some of the best people in my life because of my work and I’ve experienced some things that I know would have never came across if it hadn’t been for that. So, Thank You Work! 🙂
These always come and go. But everything that is thrown at us, is an opportunity always to make things better. And thank You always for giving the opportunity to meet new people or to experience something. I am truly grateful for all of these – no matter what the outcome is because all of these have made me grow and molded me into the person that I am now! 🙂
And with that, just wanted to share this TO-DO list for the day:
I hope you guys would be able to tick all of these today. As far as I’m concerned, I’m done with number 1. Hope you can share with me the blessings that you’ve had and that you still continue to have! 🙂 I would love to hear from you guys! <3
