Dreams are renewable. No matter what our age or condition, there are still untapped possibilities within us and new beauty waiting to be born.

i have been thinking, thinking about the year that had (or almost) passed, thinking about the new coming year, thinking about whats my new plan for the next year..
everyone - including hubby and father-in-law told me to take a break from furthering my study for phd, be happy with my masters for now, take a break for a year or so.. take it slow and break away from the busy lifestyle i had for the past 15 months..relax and love life..

& this just came to me : i will learn and am going to accept myself for who and what i am!

i am going to accept the fact that yes i will screw up,
i am going to accept the fact that not everyone will thinks likewise....
i am going to accept that sometime i can't even spell simple words and was made fun of due to my learning disabilities...
i am going to accept that the house is not going to be 100% clean 24 hours a day since i have no helper...
i am going to live in the moment and accept the day that what i have been given...
i am going to be happy that I have the opportunity to watch my daughter plays in the sun...and the opportunity to watch the sunset with her,
the gift of having my the other half coming home with nite snack that will made me fat.....
i’m going to accept the fact that i have gray hairs coming in faster than I can count, that i have those extra pounds to lose, those wrinkles that starts to appear and try to embrace them as much as i could before i start banging my head on that mirror or change to a smaller mirror that will not shown those grey hairs and wrinkles... ;p
i am going to accept me for me… yes,

this new year, i am going to accept the simple me for me... :p

thank you! my dear frenz for being there for me.....
and to those that have had made fun of me, am glad that i could make yr day too...

to dear all, have a blessed year(s) ahead!!!

till then..ciao
