But if there’s one thing I really want to kick and do way less of starting this year, it’s to QUIT WORRYING UNNECESSARILY. The Bo made fun of the number of GROWING white strands that has sprouted on my hair over the holidays last month, and thankfully he quickly followed-up by walking me into a random salon, and offered to treat me to a pampering colour & treatment while he kept the kid busy.
The assumed emotional weekend didn’t turn out as bad as I anticipated! In fact, it turned out to be a greater blessing for us which only reiterates the one and only thing that I constantly need to have more faith of – to trust God and in His plans with all my heart.
For months, all signs kept leading to change. Change I was hesitant and reluctant to embrace even till the eleventh hour. Yet this change was probably what I really needed without realizing. It also made me sit up and think of how I’ve been trying to live life according to my terms as much as I claim that His will be done.
So. This first change has been so far so good. It has taught me to stop in my tracks and be in the moment more. It has taught me to appreciate what I have more. It has taught me that letting go is mostly good for the soul. It has taught me about moving on and giving chances.
Oh boy the remaining 15 days of January is going to be insane – we’ve a good friend’s big 30th to celebrate, then comes CNY and my turn to reflect about the decade past & present. I’ve already gifted myself a 30th birthday present in advanced – probably the best money I’m going to spend in months!
Let’s try to keep the rest of January worry-free!
