I am not one to openly talk about my relationship. I just don't feel comfortable talking about it with people - unless they ask. I try to keep my relationship as private as I can because I don't want people to interfere. The problems we go through are between us. Other people shouldn't get involved. I think this is one of the key to keeping a long term relationship. Whatever happens between us is kept only between us. We rarely share it with other people because there's only two of us in this relationship anyway. People know that we are together. People know that we've been in this relationship for a long time. People know that sometimes we are happy and sometimes we aren't. But everything else about our relationship, we keep to ourselves.

There are days when I just want to lie in my bed and dream. I dream of going to Tokyo and seeing the cherry blossoms in full bloom. I dream of diving in Rainbow Reef and see the marine biodiversity it has to offer. I dream of walking down the aisle wearing a Monique Lhuillier or Vera Wang wedding dress. I dream of attending Paris, Italy and New York fashion weeks. If only my dreams can come true when I open my eyes…

Initiative - the ability to assess and initiate things independently; the power or opportunity to act or take charge before others do (Google, 2014).
Initiative is a trait that I have learned throughout the years. I was taught to decide on things independently. Though sometimes I make bad decisions, I make sure that I learn from them. We can never make the right choices all the time. Sometimes you choose the better option but other times, you you make bad decisions. But even if you choose the latter, having the initiative to decide on things independently I believe is a good trait. It means that you can think quickly and you can take responsibility for your decisions. However, not everyone will agree with me. Some people, they prefer for you not to decide on things on your own. If you are faced with a difficult situation, they prefer if you consult every step with them.

I don't believe there is a single person on Earth who never got angry at one point in his life (save for Bible characters, perhaps?) Anger is a natural feeling that people experience. There will always be triggers wherever you go that will make this feeling emerge. Whether these are little things or major things, you can never escape from getting angry. However, anger can be managed. There are certain things you can do to prevent this ill-feeling from consuming you.
Lately, there are so many things that make me feel angry: contractors not delivering what they say they will deliver and a co-worker who doesn't do his job well - they all made me feel angry. But though I am angry at a certain moment, I try to manage it as best as I can. I know that there will be better things waiting for me at the end of the day and allowing anger to consume me will only ruin it and make me feel worse (not to mention damaging relationships). Learning the art of anger management is definitely something that we all must learn.

There are so many things that I want to achieve in my life. I want to become successful in my own way. I want to become a legend and leave a lasting imprint in this world. But sometimes, the universe conspires to pull you down - crab mentality, as what other people may say. No matter how hard you try, no matter how much you struggle to reach your goals, there will always be crabs around you trying to pull you down. In such cases, continue to climb and shake off the painful pinch.

2013 may be the best most of us have experienced but I always believe that the future will have even better things to anticipate. Though I am very thankful for what the past year has given me (a new job, travel opportunities, reuniting with friends etc.) I foresee this year to be filled with even more blessings, more great fortune, and hopefully, some of my desires fulfilled. Thank you, 2013. Hello, 2014!
