Most things are nicest when they are NEW..

Wow. I still have to let it sink in me that it's already 2010. In times like this, I really get so emotional that every puff of multicolored, enormous, beautiful display of firework could let me sob and cry. Cry because of mixed emotions. Emotions I could not even determine which is which. But I know I am more than happy embracing the new year together with my family.

I did not even bother to make a set of new year's resolution because I know I'd be cheating on it in one way or another. I just wanted to put my mind in perfect shape so I could start this year off the way I wanted to. I like this feeling. The feeling of having a new slate to start over with. It's like having a sense of renewal deep within. It's a challenge for me I'd say. Because 2010 is my "deadline". I really have to finish that thing now and all I know is that I'll do anything, whatever it takes, I just have to meet that deadline now. NOW. Not now in it's literal sense but soon. As soon as possible.

Anyway, I know I am not so much of a believer for Chinese Astrology (though I have Chinese blood in my system), but I always find it a bit of entertaining knowing what the "stars" have to say. So what I did was I searched for what's in store for my sign, and here's what I got:

From: http://www.horoscopezodiacsigns.com/chinese-horoscope/rat/index.html

"Many people may have the misconception that when the year 2010 has the same animal sign as Rat are, most likely their luck is going to be worse than usual. This is not the case for Rat this year. This year is going to be filled with good news and opportunities. This is a great time for Rat to transform their dreams into reality - to pursue the dream job, the dream position, the dream salary, the dream business etc. Do not feel that their dreams are out of reach as Rat will get the support, meet the right people and find the appropriate resources that can bring Rat to their goal. Keep their heart and mind open. Remember that no matter how good the stars align for Rat, Rat still have to do their part in order to reap the best out of it. On the other hand, there will be more disputes, arguments, betrayals and misunderstandings than usual in this year. Try to be humble, keep theirself calm and objective at all times. Things will turn out well. Avoid being too stressed out. Watch out for being hospitalized and having surgery and being involved in accidents."


Sound good, eh? :) Okay, I don't claim here as one who really believes in this kind of stuff. Let me clear myself of that. But then, I think it won't be so bad to use this as a motivation, right? Honestly, after reading that I felt even more excited! As if adrenalin rushed through me making me more eager to give that "reading by the stars" something better than what they saw.. :) I bet I'm really gonna hit and meet that deadline with a bang! :) hehe..

I know I'll make it. I'm sure of that. My faith in the Lord is far bigger than any other can see or read. Faith moves mountains, it can even part oceans. And a handful of faith goes a gazillion times more than what "they have read from the stars". As long as I know that I have these feet walking with Him, I have nothing to worry about. I have a big God. And here's what I really am holding on to, here's what I really have in my heart and in my mind:




Jeremiah 29:11



For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Now that's something I can keep like a key in my pocket. That verse is my gasoline, it's one of His greatest promises I've been clinging to. And for my family, I've been pushing through my limits to give them the "extra" they deserve. Extra love, Extra care, Extra everything.

The whole place is very quiet now. Opposite of what it was hours ago. Celebration may now be over, eyes may be shut for sleeping. But inside me, I am just about to start exploding. The excitement is just so enormous, the drive so moving. :) I just know this year's going to be a re-introduction. A re-introduction of something that had been long waiting.
