This will probably be the last post that I am writing aged 24. Yes… I am growing up and leaving the 24th year behind along with its subsequent years. The past 24th year has been tumultuous to say the least and I am happy and yet sad to see it end.
For me the number 24 was supposed to have some meaning and I guess in some ways I feel as if I did not live my 24th year the fullest ~ It’s hard though to do just that when you are stuck between the four walls of your office ¾ of your life.
Well enough of them sad maudlin thoughts.
There are surely better things in store for me in the future and though the thought of these changes scares me and makes me crave for the security of the moment, I know that living in the past is a crime and that it is only normal that we should grow with the times and change accordingly for the better.
I suppose that the only thing I can do at the moment is pray that the future is filled with only good and happy things and though there be trials, let them only be there to make me stronger and a better person. I also hope that I will grow in grace and persevere to do what is right and good for my life and for the lives of the people around me.
My 24th year in a nutshell:
- Got a full time job as in the PR line
- Went to Langkawi and had an excellent time
- Began a new phase in my life with loads of Sunshine
- Ended an old phase of my life
- First family trip in more than 10 years to Singapore
- Stopped drinking excessively
- Read many books
- Watched many movies
Yup that’s about it...
Sounds quite sad actually... but after much thinking back I realise that my 24th year wasn’t that bad. It was a year of change and of breaking away from the past and things that held me down. I guess I am leaning how to use the ~Butterfly Wings~ after all.
Well I best be off. The day is almost ending and there are several things I want to do before I sleep. To all my friends, thanks for being there when I needed you guys. I could not have blossomed with such grace if it was not for all of you and of course because of God’s goodness, mercy and blessings.
Cheers to my 24th Year!
Double Cheers to my 25th one!!
