The Year: 2009


I welcome 2009 with an open heart.

2008 was a brilliant year for me. I would have selected it as “The Year” in a heartbeat because of all the amazing things that I have and that have taken place. I have so much to be thankful for, my wonderful family, remarkable true friends, graduating (with grades better that I expected), a job that makes me feel like a fully grown up person, super duper fun times with everyone and the glue to everything, love. Part of me is overwhelmed by all the blessings that I have been showered with and no amount of thank you to God is enough to represent how I feel. I feel so happy.

Initially, I was a lil afraid at the arrival of 2009. I didn’t want 2008 to end because it was one of the best years i had and part of me doesn’t want to let that go. A new year brings upon uncertainties, and I’m just happy to carry on with the 2008 way of life. What if 2009 changes all the great things? Alas, time waits for no man, plus I’m not silly enough to think it will wait for me.

But really, isn’t a new year the best way to start with a clean slate? A fresh start, a new beginning, new horizons to venture to, going for adventures of a life time, bitter sweet experiences which will add colour to my Life Sheet. And the best part of all, all these will be shared with my loved ones. So 2009 don’t scare me anymore. In fact, I look forward to what this year will bring upon.

I have a feeling 2009 is going to be an even better year than the years before. I believe we will all grow and develop, to care and share, to love wholeheartedly, to become stronger with every challenge thrown in our paths, to become wiser with each new experience, an unwavering believe in everything we pursue, a deeper sense of attachment to Him.

Cheers to 2009 to an incredible year ahead!
