The theme of this final post is " The More Things Change, The More It Seems Normal" :-)
Well, the last day of 2007 is upon us. 2007 has been a very momentous year for yours truly. So many things that I have done. So many things I wish I did. So many things I wish I didn't do .. ;-)
I am still a work in progress. However, this year I have been brave to try some new things
The arrival of Zara :-) Our precious princess ... life has been different with her around for us .. but she is a joy and a blessing. I am still learning on my role as hubby and daddy ( something yg I think will never end ) ... overall, I am grateful for mi familia.
I have in some part achieved some of my personal goals 2007, overall I give myself a passing grade. But I will do better in 2008 in the major areas of my life.
Earlier this year, I set a goal that I was to be in the academia by September 2007. Honestly, it was a minor joke actually, to begin with. I just started work at my previous workplace as an Account Manager and probably leaving there was the last thing in my mind. It was a nice place, but my soul was not in it in the end. When I received my Masters in May, I knew academia was my calling. For a while, my efforts were really fruitless, but I stuck to it. Getting my current gig is a minor miracle and syukur alhamdulillah, it is a blast so far. Honestly, it is not work I( cross my fingers ! ) so far. I am blessed with a good boss and loads of people around willing to help.
Ladies and Gentlemen, if there is ONE lesson I learnt this year and wish to impart to all of you is this simple statement : YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN LIFE :-) No one else is ...
May 2008 lead us to bettr things :-) My thanks for being a loyal reader to this blog :D
