The last day of 2014 is upon us, which means most of us are putting the final touches on our new year resolutions for 2015.
Like most people, we’ll make grandiose plans to improve ourselves physically, mentally and even spiritually. We’ll vow to eat more broccoli and chia seeds, run five miles uphill everyday, commit to 30 mins of meditation every morning or save up enough money for that healing spa retreat we have been yearning for years.
Seriously, don't we know life is hard enough as it is? Although in 2014, we made notable gains in astronomy (the Australian National University discovered the oldest known star at 13.6 billion years old) and a significant breakthrough was achieved in the US Cuban relations, we totally dived nose down ( no pun intended) when it came to aviation safety and gun control.
One might ask do we really need to further stress ourselves out with impossible resolution lists ? And why only do we hear about resolutions when a New year is looming over us?? I believe resolutions must be there everyday regardless of New Year or not. We must constantly try to improve ourselves healthwise, socially and spiritually.
Let us all do a silent prayer for all those who died in the many airplane disasters, ferry mishaps or by Ebola virus and so many more who have died whom we know nothing about.
Robin Williams - may you rest in peace finally.
Happy New Year everyone. Be kind always.
My home is
usually in a mess and has dust settled on almost everything. But I believe laughter and love will win the day. In 20 years, my girls won't remember how messy the house was but will remember the time we spent together and the love they felt...
