Another 2 days, this year is going to move. As always, time will move and it’s only up to us whether to stop ponder on the past or just move along. The year 2014 (according to the Gregorian calendar) will come and shall bring another 1001 kind of stories, adventure and hopefully new height in life.
This year, 2013 for me bring me so much and never in my mind could ever imagine. And thankful for the Almighty for that. The year before, 2012 had taught me so much. 2013 even bring me a lot more.
As I am looking back to this year, I could not stop thinking, have I ever thought all this could happen?not in a million years. People often said that fate is something we ourselves decide but at the end of the days, I could say, fate is just 20% of thing that happen. All come from Allah. But of course, without the struggle and risk taking, nothing can be achieved.
I looked back at my life and those life I had touched within this year, I had to admit that I had nothing to regret about. I satisfied. Even more, I felt blessed. I am happy for all those place, those faces, those memories. I learnt a lot, but felt I need to learn more. One by one, everything life taught me make me even more alive as day pass by.
One thing for sure, this year I could say was a disaster for my blog. I vividly remembered that in the early January and February, I thought I could write more, expressing more, improving more in this writing as I felt my language had deteriorated significantly. But, hopefully, I still have, and promised to retain to improve always. Looking back at the old blogger archive, my writing really had gone down spirally. Maybe one of the main reasons was that all those months I had, or maybe in another word, I struggle to adapt to new life, new job, and new place.
I was in KL. I went to many places. Even to the office of some High Commission. Even went to famous places in Southern part of peninsular. Then come the opportunity, I recalculated my goal, my career. All the risk, all the unforeseen condition had to be tabled but eventually I just went. Just like the song, at first I was afraid, I was petrified, but eventually it was such a lovely memories. Never even wonder that life in that place would be such an exquisite one. I would tip my hat and say that langkawi is more than meet the eyes. 100% guaranteed.
However, then come, the opportunity knock in. Take it. Gamble it and luckily, get it. And this one, I could see would be the best platform the other big thing to come in the future. I gratefully for this responsibility, even though it come with so much more pressure, more strength of mentality needed, but still, when it just come down to be close to place you always cherish and love, all of that just wash away by the rain. Some might argue, some might agree. I admit, this one is not remotely can be compared to what I can achieve or even I can get but still, it is just the best platform for me, for now. For the future, it is just another story, in another book.
Hopefully, next year, with new chapter, with new character added, my book of life will keep getting better and better. As I had gone to place this year, locally, to the place I had never gone before, learn the language I never learn before, meet the people I never met before, I just smile for now and will not set what will happen in the future. I learnt and know; only God know what the best for us. For us, we just can do and hope for the best. For me, the past is something that cannot be change, but the future, there will always be changes.
