My Last Words

I'm back again! Haha. I know I've said my goodbyes in the previous post but I feel there are still so many things I have not say and people I have not thank. Looking back this past one year (getting emotional again), I noticed great changes in myself, in all aspects of my life; career, personal development... physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Also, I encountered failures, disappointments, frustrations, lessons to learn and grow. I met nice people and the 'not so nice' people. I refuse to use the word 'bad' because no situation or no one is 'bad'. Only our perception/ attitude toward them. I firmly believe that everyone we meet or things that happen to us, do so not without a reason. It is up to us to see the opportunity to learn and grow from them. :)

I also learnt to see life in a more positive way and be thankful for everything I've already got (or things I don't have, that I don't want). I spend more time with family and friends, I allow myself more 'me time', I say my affirmations and count my blessings every morning and each night before I go to sleep. These have indeed help me alot. I feel more at peace with myself and thus.... happier. :) I went for my weekly jogs and workouts. Before that, I'm NEVER into any sports (I could only play badminton. lol). BUT I did THESE within the past 12 months (patting myself on the shoulder)!

Now, time to thank the people who'd walked through these journeys with me...

*A BIG thank you, to all the supporters of my works (Byrheea and Dollgift), my blog (hitting 100 followers. Yay!!) including those who are not in the followers' list. You know who you are... thank you. :)

*Friends I made in the blogging world, HollyEmily (and her CUTEST daughter, Devon), NingPili, Koralee, Janna and Shelley.. just to name a few. Oh, I even have a 'pen-friend' from Germany! Hello Astrid, if you happen to read this! The most amazing part is that, these people are from different parts of the world and we've never meet in person. Come to think of it, I started my blog on 9 Jan '09.. it took me really long to make up my mind to keep one and this has to be one of the best choices of my life. If you refer back to my earlier posts, you'll see the HUGE difference (another pat on my shoulder). Thank you ladies, you colored my world!! :)

*The 8 local stores (wow, 8! another pat) that allow me to consign my works with them. I hope there will be more to come! :)

*My family and friends for their constant love and encouragement. I LOVE YOU ALL! :*

I hope I didn't miss out anyone? Well, just in case, 'Thank you EVERYONE (living things, non living things) for EVERYTHING!!! See, I'm smart right (another pat). 

I better stop before I sound like some Grammy award winner.

I'll be back with my resolutions for 2010 (okay, I'm almost done). Here's wishing everyone a new year filled with loads of love, peace, abundance, (good) surprises, fun and joy! WAIT don't go yet!! Nono wants to say,

'HAPPY NEW YEAR (and remember me)'! See you in 2010!!! :D

Oh, and I almost forgot to wish Nono a Happy New Year, but I think it's important. So here it goes:

Dear Nono,

I hope 2010 brings you all the puppy treats, belly rubs, and warm blankets you could possibly hope for.
