The Ugly Truth

 

RA says so what's your resolution for 2013? I don't actually have one for this year. Well, last year was more about contribution, contributing to myself and also the community. I could say that it went pretty well and I'm quite content about it. 2013 is just another year and let's see how the flow is. Hmmm now come to think of it, it's best that I "go in the flow" of things rather than going with the flow. I know of my friends who normally makes resolutions but tend to forget about them halfway through the year. I guess the key word here is not resolution but commitment.. Commitment towards ourselves and not for others. So do remind yourself whenever you make the resolution (to be healthy or to lose weight or whatever it is), make that commitment consistent. It will be rewarding by year end ;)

Recapping back my 2012, I kinda appreciated it in many ways. There weren't many downhills and I believe I have changed the way I see or feel about things and experiences. Career wise, I know there is still room for growth and I haven't taken that opportunity to go a step higher. I've to ask myself, "Do I want to stay in this comfort zone for a long time?" I need a kick, a boost to ignite that fire I used to have a few years ago.

My personal growth has been amazing as far as I'm concerned. I tend to have high expectations from people that I care the most and it's not easy to practice this form of unconditional love. In other words, you don't worry or let it affect should the other party don't return a favour or some form of care or love regardless how you have been treating them. I have to admit to you guys that I'm a love bunny by nurture and to own the sense of unconditional love is never an easy path. So I'm proud to say that 2012 have thought me in many ways on how I respond (or react) to my people I interact with and also dealing with challenges and obstacles along the way.

To tell you honestly, sometimes I see feeds on people's twitter and instagram on their frustrations involving emotions on friendship and relationship and the first thing that comes to mind is this person loving him or herself more or he/she needs that kind of love/care or perhaps craving that "attention"? What is that purpose for that message that you want your readers or that particular person you target to see? I rather see quotes or messages that are inspiring and motivational. Why am I ranting about this? Because that was the old me a few years back.. and the cause of conditional love and expectations (with my love bunny trait) will trigger all these emotions that I want the world to see and who knows my friends or readers will back me up and feed my ego. I've learned that wasn't a wise choice and growing out of it is never easy but the first step does make a lot of difference. I would like to thank my close buddies who are also my teachers of my personal growth and I can see how 2013 will be another awesome year.

In other news, Papaya.Mangoes.Oranges website was compromised yet again for the ummmpth time. How is this possible or they don't have strong firewalls or IT security to prevent such thing from happening again? Now the website is back up again but it leads me to a big question mark on the security measures on the website. I guess we take for granted they wont penetrated by some jobless people. Oh well..

I still have tons to blog about especially the recap of 2012 as well as my movies (and the disappointments) of 2012. You may have realised that I'm taking it slowly for my blog posts *lol* I'm still adjusting or let's say transitioning to the work mode. Tomorrow will be the start of my working mode and l hope to be in 2nd gear by then :D.

Today's the first day of school and work for the masses. It was nice to see friend's updating on their social network on their morning experiences. Well, I kinda wanted to see off my little siblings before they head off for school. I haven't seen them ever since I left Singapore. I shall catch up with them pretty soon. I realised how I don't have time with them whenever I'm back at home. Strange indeed!! Anyway, I can't wait to see you guys (hopefully later).

Have a great week ahead, guys!! And Happy New Year :D
