New Year 2016: A New Beginning

What the wonderful year 2015. This might be the simplest statement of what I've been through for the previous year. There were ups and downs, but still able to conquer challenges and reach another milestone in life. The year 2015 brought me to another chapter of extraordinary living where I stretch myself beyond the limits.

It was a fascinating journey when I've been to places where my thoughts have brought me. It was indeed a law of attraction that's working whenever I need it. Years ago when I started to believe that we become what we think, then I learned to practice and incorporate it regularly to achieve whatever goals that I desire. 

If I have done it before, then I believe that I could attract things that will surely work for me. This year I have accomplished several goals while others are in the process and turning them into a reality. Life has never become as magical as it may seem, but with creativity and passion, there has been an unimaginable turning point. 

Some tough decisions would have changed circumstances, yet it was something fulfilling. For a long time in service, now is the time for a new adventure with awesome people full of energy and confidence in reaching a certain level of success. 

The previous chapter has never been easy, hence full of challenges that made me a better person. I've been polished like a gem -- a precious one that illuminates and sparkles. It is a product of enlightenment to a certain level and my deepest gratitude to the master of life that once I've known. 

Everything that was learned will always be carried over to the next chapter and then it goes on. Everything has its own significance and it will be of merit when it's done with honor and dignity. Being grateful to past success will help create more abundance and blessings and this is what I know for sure. 

However, it's not always about the peak of happiness and success. There may have been untoward circumstances that are beyond our control and that teaches us a lesson to be resilient and by learning to move forward. Life may throw a hard rock but it can become a polished and more refined stone thereafter depending on how we deal with things and accepting the challenges. 

It's truly wonderful to face obstacles towards success. It takes passion, courage, and desire to be able to make it. Along the way are rough roads and intersections that will eventually lead to the right direction. It may seem a very challenging year take, but with perseverance, I surpass the trials that will launch a newer version; a better and extraordinary one.

Christmas in Our Hearts 2015: A Blissful Journey

Christmas is the most awaited season and it is truly the most wonderful time of the year. This is a good time to spend joyful memories with our friends and loved ones; to share smiles and laughter with others or perhaps grief and sorrow to some.

The past Christmas celebrations were joyous and unforgettable. I may have missed Christmas in my home country, yet I always felt connected and being loved. Nothing beats the celebration like the way we Filipinos do. It may be a simple celebration, but the spirit of Christmas is truly felt and remains in our hearts forever.

It was exactly four years ago when I've shared thoughts about the holiday season. I have witnessed a different culture and how they celebrate Christmas is wonderful. Christmas in Our Hearts 2011 brought good memories with those people I've been with. It was like having fun in a wonderland and feels like there's no tomorrow.

Christmas 2012 was meaningful since I celebrated it with my family. Since I missed the 2011 celebration, I cherished the moment that we're together. I may not be home for Christmas for 2013, so this is something worth reminiscing. Christmas in Our Hearts 2012 was full of fun and excitement. Spending time together with my family is bliss.

Christmas 2013 was a simple celebration and again I was away from home. It doesn't matter how far is the distance, as long as I never felt alone and I still carry the smile and happiness it brings. It was a nice feeling to have shared Christmas traditions and stories and it will be cherished.

Christmas 2014 was celebrated in my hometown together with my family. It was one of the happiest moments since we don't get the chance to celebrate together every year. It was not as extravagant as compared to previous years' celebration, but the simplicity and essence of Christmas are remarkable.

This year 2015, I am with my family for Christmas. There's nothing much excitement like the past years' celebration, yet it is wonderful. What matters is the presence of loved ones and sharing moments with them.

I hope that before the year ends, we'll all be healed from old wounds and unpleasant memories. We hope to deserve the good things in life and we'll work together towards a common goal; to achieve success, fulfillment, and experience everlasting bliss.
