There is only a couple days left in 2017.  How is your reflection of the year past and the planning ahead for 2018 going?

I signed up for a 20-day life planning challenge earlier this month, but life got in the way of the life planning. 🙂

Have you come up with goals that you want to achieve in 2018?

I have come up with 3 goals. Three seems to be my magic number. Let’s see. I am the third child in my family. My zodiac Scorpio is symbolized by 3 different kinds of animals. And, I suppose I can consider the life I am living now to be my third life. Continue Reading →

I hope you are having a wonderful time with friends and family. Continue Reading →

5 Inspiring Ted Talks to Help You Rock 2018

2017 is coming to an end. Where did the year go?

You’re probably busy with wrapping up gifts to put under the tree, planning a feast for the family, going to holiday parties and enjoying the jolliness of the season.

Amidst the hustle and bustle of the season, it’s also time to do your reflection of the year past and plan for the year ahead.

Have you received lots of blessings throughout the year? Or has life knocked you down to your knees?

If you have been through a rough season, my heart goes out to you. Do have faith that there is a purpose for every trial we go through.

We can’t change the past. But, we can decide that this is not how our story is going to end.

Reflection of The Year Past Blog Title

Yes, I know. We still have about another month left in 2017 before it is New Year. Since I had my birthday recently, it is a brand new year for me already. So, I figure it is fitting to write this now.

As it is the custom, birthday tends to make you reflect on life in a deep way.

On average, we live to about 80 years old. In the 20s, you are busy with college and navigating adulthood. By the 30s, you are building your professional career and if you’re lucky, you’ve met that special someone in your life and you’ve started a family.
