Today is Christmas 2016, this is one of the most quiet Christmas for me. This year’s Christmas isn’t so much of a celebration and gatherings for me, this Christmas is a quiet time, to rest, relax and reflect for me, and to prepare to bid farewell year 2016 and welcome year 2017.
I am looking forward to say goodbye to year 2016, a difficult year, reached the rock bottom, lost and out of sorts for a while. It had taught me so many life lessons and trials in life. Now is the time to consolidate and learn from the lessons and trials that happened to me in year 2016. I am not going to repeat my stories here, they can be found inside my personal website if you are interested to know what happened to me in year 2016.
This year 2016, I lost three people from my life, a senior scout master mentor/friend, my university junior and my paternal grandmother. It wasn’t the easiest time for me. As a form of healing, I am planning to write remembrance posts for my university junior and paternal grandmother.
Today, Christmas 2016, I am taking the time to rest, relax and reflect for me. I am also using it as the start of the time to forget and put aside all those people, situations and memories that happened/impacted on me.
Today, on this festive holiday weekend, it’s all about being thankful, grateful and appreciative of my friends who gave me Christmas gifts, my family, relatives and friends who supported and encouraged me when I was at my rock bottom of my life in March and April, and also the time when people close to me passed on when I was really feeling very down and sad.
Thank you everybody who has supported me, encouraged me and helped me along my journey in 2016.
Wishing everybody Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
