All in all? 2011 really put me through a lot of physical, mental, spiritual & emotional crap. There were a lot of times this year I wanted to give up on whatever I was doing, I wanted to seclude myself & just not mix with friends at all, a lot of times I asked “why me? why this? why?” Even till today, 31 December 2011, I’ve to admit my mind has not had a single day of proper rest, it’s still thinking & worrying about work or some other crucial matter.
But I’ve to say that, all the crap I’ve faced this year, is only a taste of what’s to come next year really. At least I’ve a feel of how rigorous 2012 may possibly be, hopefully I can take it all in & prepare myself more adequately, physically, mentally, spiritually & emotionally. Negatives aside, I really thank God for 2011. I’ve never made so many new friends in a single year as 2011, go through so many different experiences, be it overseas, in a working environment, in a studio, on stage, at the beach, in an old folks’ home, or just where I usually am. There’s a lot to be thankful for, a lot of fun, laughter, good company & joyous moments despite all the crappy experiences.
In about 10 more minutes, Singapore will say farewell to 2011 & hello 2012. I’ve to say, thank you God for family, friends & all the experiences this year has brought, good or bad, happy or sad, adrenaline or exhausting, uplifting or frustrating, they’re making me more into the person You intend me to be. I’m pretty much going into 2012 with much anxiety & uncertainty. There’s still a lot undone, a lot more to be done, a lot more that awaits…But I’ll take all these good & bad experiences along with me into the new year, & oh yes, I’ll ask God out along too, to walk with me
