The Year Ahead – 2017

Hello friends,

How are you doing?

2017 is upon us. 2016 is in the history book. Year after year, we get the same feeling on the last few days on the calendar – that the year just whizzed passed us. As they say, the days are long but the years are short.

But why do we get this kind of feeling? Is it because we ageing? Is it because we are not filling the weeks and months with activities we love to be doing? Is it because we are too distracted with other non-essential stuffs that we don’t do things that are essential to us? Or are we keeping ourselves so busy that we don’t have the time to stop and smell the roses (or enjoy the sunrise/ sunset).

A new year brings new hope. I don’t set any resolution as I once recalled my manager sharing this “my resolution this year is to complete the resolutions I set last year”. We often set big resolutions but miss out the smaller things that really matter.

I have several plans I hope to fulfil this year. Nothing too ambitious though. One thing I’ve learned over the years is small steps matter more than big ones. If I continue to push forward with those small steps, I’ll get there one day.

I hope you have a brilliant year ahead.
