HAPPY NEW YEAR!
2015 came and went by so quickly. It is only sensible to reflect on what had happened last year.
So, how was 2015? I shall say, the beginning was a rough start. Grief was at the core of my being and I never knew that such emotion could wholly take me over. However, from all that pain, did I learn anything? Yes, I did. I have learned that I am surrounded by amazing people that I would ever hate to lose. That I have a strong desire to create, even more during the toughest times when words couldn’t express what I wanted to say. I have learned that I have the courage to leave home and live in a country which I barely spoke the language. That I am continuing to be a better person than I was yesterday. And as I wished, I am growing mentally and spiritually. Also, I have learned that no matter what happens, I have the power to pick myself up from any fall and still have a lot of care and love to give, because my Creator has empowered me that way. This wouldn’t have been possible without my family, friends, and even the kindness of mere strangers. So to everyone who has just began or has continued to be by my side, I love you and I gratefully thank you for making 2015 amazing.
As for 2016, I’m aiming to do three things: something old, something new, and something continued.
- Something old: I’m going back to writing letters and postcards. There’s something exciting and nostalgic about putting pen to paper. Also, receiving something from the mail! If you would like a letter/postcard from me – let me know!
- Something new: I’ve always wanted to skydive…
- Something continued: learning the Korean language, improving on the ukulele, and ice skating backwards.
Simple? Yes! Attainable? Yes! These are some of the things I wish to share with you. I hope your 2016 is treating you well.
P.S. Since the last time I posted, the term ended and I was out and about traveling – mostly alone. My Instagram + Snapchats (@MissArve) have been the most up-to-date of my happenings. I shall be posting a new video on my YouTube soon.
Anyways, thank you for being part of my journey.
