“Tomorrow, is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one.” – Brad Paisley
Today, 1st January 2016, the first day of a 366 page book (2016 is a leap year, we have 29th February). Everyone of us starts the year fresh and new, for our goals and objectives, even though we might be working in a job or running a business for a short time or a long time.
Before I start to “write my” year 2016, my 366 page book, let me take a long look back at the year 2015 and do a personal reflection of my year. I had some turbulent times, angsty, a very different form of stress and pressure, some great significant moments and recognition, all in a year’s 2015 timeline.
Work and business, still learning many things, helping to run a Small Medium Enterprise (SME) business, trying my best to carry a heavy burden of 4 people workload, leading and managing staff. My greatest lessons in work for 2015 were to learn the life skills and techniques to handle people, young and old, their antics, their actions, their harmful and hurting words, the backstabbing. This special life lesson is not over and it is still ongoing.
For my photography and travel reflection, it had been done and written separately here on my photography site, do drop by and take a read!
Personal life wise, nothing much, nothing exciting. More of hiding the hurt and disappointment away. I think I must stay away from people who do not appreciate my kindness, the things I do for them, being used for my networking and benefits, and lastly abusing my kind heart and soul.
What does year 2016 lies for me ?
We all have goals and objectives in personal life, in our work. Today, in this post, it is not about writing and sharing my goals and objectives for year 2016. Today marks the start of a new book, a new chapter, a new hope. I want to kick start my year 2016 – 366 page book (remember it is a leap year). Wrapping up my reflection for year 2015, I am grateful and blessed, learned new things and lessons, always learning and gaining new things, lessons, skills and knowledge. This is also the time to let go of toxic things and people. Thank you for the life lessons you gave me in year 2015.
Ok, as I round up this post, year 2016 starts with a long weekend of rest and recovery for me (Friday 1st January 2016, Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd January 2016).
First and foremost, maybe I can kickstart my photography year 2016 – 366 page book, before my work year 2016 – 366 page book on 4th January 2016.
Time to do more meaningful things in life, mentoring, sharing, photography, giving back to society, making an impact in society and people’s life.
Time to utilise my time better on social media platforms and not too engrossed into it (maybe except my Instagram where I can express my photography on the move)
Onward 2016 !
