Chapter One | 65CityGirl

If it is important enough to you, you will find a way.

If it is not, you will find an excuse.

People have the tendency to usher the beginning of a new rush of 365 days with explosive yet beautiful fireworks, a dash of champagne and a list of hopeful but rarely fulfilled resolutions.

It is a beautiful sentiment to make a hopeful wish at the start of the year, and see its fruition at the end of a year.

Making resolutions is absolutely something that I have not done in the short life span of mine. But something about 2016 beckons. It is after all the year where I consciously made one of the maddest and yet bravest decision to leave a company that I loved to pursue a career path I felt would satiate my personal and professional growth more significantly.

With a heavy decision behind me now, I can only truly look forward to the future with eagerness and excitement – something that I felt I had lost along the way with so much focus on career advancement.

So here goes nothing, a wish-list of things I hope to look back at the end of 2016 and give a gratifying smile:

  1. Spend more time with my family and loved ones
  2. Learn a new skill – driving/guitar/squash?
  3. Read new books always
  4. Be thankful for the small things in life
  5. Visit Japan (I REALLY REALLY MEAN THIS – I’ve said this a million times since my university days)
  6. Keep up with the exercising routine
  7. BLOG ON

With that, I start a brand new chapter in my life again! *staying positive* What about your new year resolutions? If you haven’t thought of any yet, let Neil Gaiman inspire you a little…

May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.

Neil Gaiman
