You may want to smack me all you want (read: only with my hubby’s permission) if you think I am not living up to my blogging standards. I sincerely know I am not doing a good job in keeping up with a religious frequency.
With all your respect, I do hope I am still not too late to holler about how 2010 has taken a sharp claw-scratch in my life. I made 5 resolutions last year and truth to be told, I don’t think I did an exemplary job. Click here for last year’s post.
I shall empower myself with moderation
Did I really practise moderation? I was very gung-ho about gym for the first few months but after being so caught up with work, I totally lost the interest and passion to exercise. Muscles turned flabby of course! However, I did a somewhat decent job in my diet. Thus, my weight did not fluctuate up or down drastically. I do indulge in sweet desserts like chocolate brownies or my favourite high-in-sodium Kin Kin Chilli Pan Mee or even deep-fried-fattening-and-yet-finger-licking-good KFC. The fact is, you guys did not know that I have a personal Food Police, to constantly remind me that I must not indulge sinfully everyday! What else? Oh, at least I am not glued to the couch for hours and hours of TVB or American dramas.
I shall empower myself in God’s favour
I always believe that God should be the centre of our lives in whatever circumstances. Isaiah 40 has lifted me up when I was walking through my darkest valleys. He has blessed me in many ways that I couldn’t even possibly imagine such as a rewarding (even though tiring) career and an amazingly elite man. I will be strike by lightning if I am not grateful. I am more than indebted towards God’s favour in my life. I can only continue to sing praises and give thanks for my God has never neglected me.
I shall empower myself in my career
A year has passed in a blink of an eye. You may refer to me for a lot of general questions about the heartbeat or arrhythmias but I am still not as brainy as the Cardiologists. I still need to force myself to amplify my competency in this area. Sinus bradycardia, Left bundle branch block, Mobitz II, Brugada syndrome, HOCM and… *faints*
I shall empower myself with at least one Beach holiday
Yes! It is unquestionably a big yes on this. If you’re a beach lover, I implore you to include Koh Lipe in your travelling list. The island is not fully developed and you will be mesmerized with aquamarine waters and white sandy beaches. Needless to say, I am extremely contented with my beach escapade in 2010.
I shall empower myself with more joy
It depends how you perceive joy. For me, the most essential element of joy would be the laughter liberated from within. For the first half of 2010, I had more tears of frustration and discontent than carrying a joyful laughter. It was a rather a nerve-racking journey for me. Nevertheless, God poured a lot of unconditional love (read: plus my husband) for me and I learned to toss the misery away bit by bit. One good thing that I am always proud and thankful to have, is an awesome bunch of friends in my life to provide me support and listening ears.
The first half of 2010 was a road filled with hurdles one after another but the second half I had someone to help me over these hurdles or even knocked them down for me.
As for this year, I want to live my life vivaciously with God’s anointed presence at all times. And I want to set a better 2011 for myself and…ssssshhh…to be a noble wife to my virtuous husband.
