According to my mind, this year has more downs than ups for me. Perhaps my spirit/soul will beg to differ very strongly. LOL I did some of the things that were scary to me. And while they may or may not yielded any benefits, I know I’ve gained confidence through it. Turns out, there is nothing to be afraid of, only overthinking on minuscule stuff. Yes, I know I’ve talked about it before, and I’m still learning about the overthinking matter. In terms of speed, it’s a moderate year for me. I didn’t find it going by too fast or too slow. Just good enough for me. Is this a good sign then?
How’s my 2017?
I think it was a neutral year for me. Lots of ups, and also lots of downs. And this is what life is all about. 😏 All the hardships and fun days are priceless lessons, especially failures. This year, I spent a large bulk of my time learning who I really am, and why I am the way I am.
2016 have been good to me.
Mmm let me rephrase it: I work hard to make 2016 a good year to live in. At the end of the day, I think I succeeded.
I’m calmer, more positive and have rebounded with new energy. Not all 365 days are bed of roses and I try not to let negativity affect me too badly or deeply. Sometimes it does affect me more than I could handle (I’m only human) and giving myself a pep talk is the best way to bounce back. I’m grateful for all the ups and downs I experienced this year. From it, I learned a lot.
A mother’s love is infinite.
This is one of the way she shows us…
Clothes washing by hand. Hers and ours. Only for delicate, new and quality ones.
Ahhh how do I start?
2015 is a REALLY tough year for me. I would say it’s the toughest one yet.
On happier things first. I’m glad my family members are healthy. Now dad, if only you can quit smoking!!! Really man. It breaks my heart to see you gambling your life away. I also appreciated the time we spent on our triple family vacations, although on some days things may not be rosy. Weekly grocery shopping is now my thing as I cook more at home. Because of that, I’m more price and quality conscious. Mostly I cook healthy dishes and make salad and juice. Oh yeah! On exercise… well, I think I’m less lazy compare to last year but still have a loooooong way to go.
I started this Loved Hands series 5 years ago. It’s about photographing the hands of my loved ones while travelling in the car. You can check out the first part and second part if you’re curious.
Dad. My worse nightmare is coming true. His nagging is more serious than my grandma now. Still a smoker and drinker. Sigh. If only he could stop doing both of that.
