May the best of your todays be the worst of your tomorrows.

Welcome 2010

It has been ten years since the turn of the millenium and it seems that we are still rebuilding ourselves. This past year proves to be a difficult one. We have been through a great flood, an unforgettable massacre and numerous oil price hikes. On a personal level, some of us had frustrations at work, had our hearts broken, gone through tough times with our own family, been through complicated situations just to name a few. But even with all the misfortunes and tragedies, we are still here, still living our lives and still trying to progress.

It is not hard to foresee that we may still have a difficult year ahead of us. We still have the duty to appoint the right leader for our nation and may God help us all through that. Some of us are still figuring out how to get that promotion, paying the bills, finishing school, how to pick up the pieces and move on. But as I think through it all, I remember that The Matrix taught us that “everything that has a beginning has an end”. I mention this, because despite all the hardships we have been through, there is still hope. There will always be hope. Hope for a better tomorrow. We worry because we all have hope that tomorrow maybe, next week, maybe next year everything will be better. And as we hope altogether, I also remember a small belief that my mom does every New Year ‘s Eve. I think it’s a Chinese superstition that on New Year’s Eve, you open all the cabinets, containers, wallets, boxes, etc. for all the luck and blessings to enter the containers all throughout the New Year. Well my friends, instead of opening all I mentioned previously, I invite you all to open up your hearts and your minds this New Year. Open yourself to all the possibilities and opportunities. And just like Harvey Dent, let us all make our own luck. Let us remember that we are all in control of our lives and if we want to be successful, we can be. And I’m not just talking about this as a country, but also individual successes. Your own goals. Let us live this year free from fear and worries.

It has been ten years since the turn of the millenium and I believe it’s about time for us to redeem ourselves from the past. It’s time for us to take control of our lives and breakthrough from all the depression. Let us all make this our year!

May the best of our todays be the worst of our tomorrows.

A happy New Year to us all.
