Christmas in Our Hearts 2017: The Unexpected Reality

Christmas season brings beautiful memories in each of us, feeling joyful for the gifts we received as a kid during Christmas parties and grand year-end parties as adults. Those moments brought meaning to our lives, families, and dear friends. It created a particular bond — a connection that could last forever. However, no matter how pleasant those memories were, there may still be some unpleasant events that didn't prevent us from moving forward. Yuletide season goes on and heals and renews certain emotions, beliefs, and personalities.

Christmas in Our Hearts: A Wonderful Beginning reminded me of a celebration away from home, yet connected in spirit. It was when I felt very grateful and joyful for the beautiful blessings I received. That was an unexpected reality, and not in a dream state from a deep sleep.

Years have passed, and the road ahead brought so many endless opportunities. The world showers abundance for those who believe and have faith, those who have fallen but never gave up. A temporary shelter to a wandering spirit, but when knocked and called, it passes the same road to exit and back to where our hearts belong. To follow our heart's desire could mean freedom from emotional and mental assault, to bring back our old self — stronger and better.

On the road to the peak is indeed bliss. Christmas in Our Hearts 2015: A Blissful Journey is a memorable moment of fun and excitement. It is the road to self-renewal and feeling hopeful for the next chapter, just like those who have just started living their dreams and are now living on the next level of a more wonderful reality. They have persevered, endured the pain, and gained the greatest surprise they deserve.

There were moments of victory and living our purpose. The road to healthcare mission brought a different kind of service for those who seek healing. Just like a book, it has its last chapter and page. Christmas in Our Hearts 2016: Breakthrough to Success was a call to service, self-discovery, and affirmation. When the previous page was done, we sought a more significant challenge; something unknown brought us on an incredible journey. It may have revealed our weaknesses, our dislikes and helped us move out of our comfort zones, but it also showed a different personality vulnerable to threats and uncontrolled forces.

Along the way, we meet people who are good and evil to us. People we met by chance have helped us get where we are. No matter what happens, with life's ups and downs, there will always be a family of our own and wherever we have settled in. The virtue of gratitude, forgiving and loving nature still reigns in our hearts. We continue to reflect and reminisce about those beautiful moments and believe in the current unexpected reality. The chapter still needs to close. It's still an incredible journey and challenges at the crossroads. The seed of thought planted years back is now becoming closer to reality. There are unexpected circumstances, but we create our reality, desires, and destiny.
