Happy New Year!

Well it's that time of year again. Both the beginning and the end. A time of hope and a time of hopelessness. 

At this time, people stop to reflect on the year that has passed and the year that will come. For many, it is a time of sorrow as they recall the loved ones that they have lost and the dreams and plans that are still yet to be fulfilled. 

A new year can be a time of great joy as we prepare for the coming months and plan our health and lifestyle down to an often unattainable tee. 

As with everyone else, I too reflect at this time of year as I wonder what this year will bring and recall the triumphs and tears of the year before. 

Speaking of recalling (and before this post gets too serious, I would like to share a memory with all of you). 

If the internet is correct, then this moment happened 10 years ago!!

10 years ago!!! I'm too shocked and excited about this!!

Anyway, back to this blog post.. 

My news feed is currently filled with people wishing each other a happy and joyous year and reflecting on how great it was to spend New Years Eve with dearly loved friends and family. Here's the issue though. We should be doing that every day, or at least every week or two. 

Spending a day dancing or chilling or exploring with people who make us happy shouldn't be something unusual or something that happens only on special occasions. Life is too exciting to waste doing unexciting things. Now, don't get me wrong, we still need to work and eat and sometimes do mundane tasks, but these shouldn't be your everything. 

Regularly spend time with the ones that you love and at the end of the year you'll be able to reflect on how much your relationships have grown and on how great your life is, rather than reflecting on the promotions that you missed, the partners that didn't come, and the marks that you didn't quite attain. 

Enjoy life everyday and why not re-watch HSM while your at it? :D

Have a joyous and blessed 2016,
