A lot of you may have read my previous blogs and are aware I quit blogging after being active for 8 years. Recent discussions have sparked questions about my blogging years and yes, I got nostalgic and skimmed through my old posts (which are offline and kept safe by me). Next thing I know, I’m logging onto wordpress and creating a blog from scratch (I’ll wait for one of my geekier friends to help me with some of the more geekier stuff).
I created a blog. That was the easy part. Now I’m staring at a blank screen not knowing where to start from. It’s difficult to imagine that I used to blog regularly. How should I start? What should I say? I need to ponder on this.
I can tell you that the past couple of years were not easy for me but I did learn quite a bit from it. I however do believe that the beauty of life is going through trials and errors wile accidentally tripping on some fun.
Below is something I shared with my friends on my 33rd birthday recently. These points are what helped me go through life and stay chipper:
Life will rarely turn out the way you want it to and that’s ok.
Accept it with a smile on your face.
Surround yourself with positive people instead of people who will drain you.
Live fearlessly but cautiously.
Love life. Love your family. Love your friends and more importantly love yourself.
Laugh, keep laughing, and when you are done, laugh some more.
Fall in love. It’s ok if you get hurt. You will stand up strong again and love again.
When you fall in love, make sure you love yourself with that person.
Be kind hearted. Never ever be bitter or angry. Leave it behind you and move on.
Live with no regrets.
