Happy new year everyone! I wish you all a pleasant & productive year ahead. How was your new year celebration? I hope you enjoyed it.
As the new year comes, I’d like to thank 2015 for all the hardships and challenges it brought into my life. It was a very rough year on so many levels, but hey, anything that doesn’t kill me will only make me stronger. Oh, at least one awesome thing happened in 2015. I did scuba diving, with my mom! Yeay!
As for me, every new year is special because it is also my birthday. Yes, it’s true that I’d rather see the date as a number that marks my birth 30-something years ago. However, I haven’t been doing anything special. The last time I remember celebrating my birthday with a party was when I turned 17, my mom and my brother came all the way from Papua for this occasion. Years after that, sometimes friends and family members got me a cake or other food to celebrate. As we grow older, birthday celebration does not always mean cutting a cake and blowing some candles.
This year I celebrate my birthday with my loved ones. Both my parents are here and my daughters as well. Even though my dad is struggling with some health issues, he manages to spare this special day with an okay condition. At least he feels fit enough to go out. We plan to eat out later today, at a place that my mom will choose for us. I don’t mind eating at any place as long as I am with them, that is what matters most.
I hope 2016 brings all of us joy and happiness, loads of success and prosperity. I wish to write another movie, another novel, do yoga everyday and above all I’ve promised to help my elder daughter to slim down a little bit. What’s your new year wish?
