I decided to set aside time to do a post here. The previous post doesn't really count as a "post".
Each time I come back to Livejournal to share my feelings, I can't help but start my post with a "It's been a long time since I last posted anything here." I'm sorely tempted to repeat that line again now, but I think we need a change.
2013 has been a pretty good year for me so far. Of course, by that, I am referring mostly to the "2013" after the Chinese New Year. They say the year of the snake is a good year for me (those who are born in the year of the horse). I'd like to believe that. Whether it's true or not, that prediction has given me a lot of hope for the coming year.
I feel a lot more positive and inspired than I usually am. I have taken up a short Yoga course, and I absolutely love it. Maybe it is also partly the effects of Yoga that I feel so positive lately. Either way, it's quite a wonderful feeling really. A lot of changes are taking place in my life. Maybe it's the fact that I am really excited to complete my part-time degree this year. Lately I am really inspired, and I have been making plans for the future. I really hope I can make these plans reality. I am also reminding myself to smile a lot more recently. I guess that is another part of the whole "positive energy" thing.
This April, I ~might~ be going to Amsterdam for a work-related seminar, and I'm really excited for it. I mean, it's Amsterdam, all the way in Europe. Everybody dreams of going to Europe, and to have this amazing opportunity given to me, well, I'm not letting it go. Sure, I will have to compromise by missing a few lectures in April and giving up my annual leave for this trip instead of saving them for school projects, but I'm glad.
Let's hope this positive energy is here to stay for the long-term.
