Greetings to all of you. May you have a nice day ahead. So, whats new? I hope that you are well amidst in this new year eve. I am doing just fine, well-fed and well-rested, methinks. On the side note, I just finished my finals examination for the first semester last week and currently on a semester break, what a joy. Last year, I celebrated the new year's eve at the Light Festival in Putrajaya and the irony thing is on the same day this year, who in the world would think that I would welcome the new year with piles of notes to revise at and studying, thanks goodness that finals is done. On the brighter side, I came back home! It has been two months and a half since I last met my family, I have missed them too much.

What are my thoughts about 2018?

OK, first of all, I would like to summarize 2017 in a paragraph but that thing alone is pretty daunting to be done at, so being a procrastinator blabbering-expert like I am, lets just say this. Well, pretty much I can say that 2017 was a year of growing up, for me. I have learnt about countless things through ups and down in life, of that what makes me to live my life better and learn from the mistake because, human makes mistakes and none of us are perfect. You gotta deal with it. It was a year of trembling hands, of worn out hearts and of tired self. In other words, 2017 was a year stumbling through ups and down, of feeling lost that feel like you are not worth enough of a person.

2017 was a year of working so hard learning to grow myself to be better and feeling like I were getting nowhere. 2017 was a year of studying tirelessly night after night, and still feeling like a failure, no matter how hard it was like. 2017 was a year spent ignoring what I truly wanted. Of ignoring my self-worth. And seeking what I truly deserve in this world.

Let 2018 be the year that you can focus on yourself 
Let it be the year that you finally do what you have put off for so long. It is not the time now to ignore your feeling. It is not the time now to put yourself to the side, letting other people take your place.

Let 2018 be the year where you finally can look in the mirror and love yourself
You are worth it. You are worthy of love for yourself. Let this year be the year you put yourself first. Let it be the year where you say ‘no’ to people who treat you like crap, and let it be the year you become your own soulmate.

Let 2018 be the year of you
Yes, you. Let 2018 be the year you fail, but keep on going. The year you fall, and keep on flying. The year you fall in love with yourself, and with your beautiful life.

You will be surrounded by friends that made everyday feel like home. Those that helped you get through yet another year. Some faces will be new, yet familiar. The night will feel forever young. You will feel forever young. You will be saying farewell not only to the year itself, but to a lot of things. Some bittersweet memories. Maybe it simply gives some another reason to celebrate, or maybe for some it is the opportunity to reflect, or to anticipate a new year with hope of a blank canvas, waiting to be scribbled. Or maybe we just make up another list of goals and hopes we will never accomplish. Maybe it is the thrill of simply flipping that page. Of getting the chance to say goodbye to welcome the new year.

Whatever your welcome is this year, I hope it is one of the memorable ones you have ever made and one you never forget. Here it is, to a better year, 2018.



Love, Syfka
