Starting Right

As much as possible we all want to start the new year right. Right? Everyone is looking for new things… new challenges… new beginnings. Everyone is busy making their New Year’s Resolution... or starting over again. And everyone is just so hopeful... so positive… and so optimistic about the new year ahead.

Well, I am just one of them. This year will be a better year for me and my family. I am very positive about that. Despite what happened a couple of weeks before the year ended I am so grateful because God is so good. I have a new job. I have a new car. I have a new laptop. And I have new opportunities.

This year, there are lots of changes that we need to adjust to. And I know the adjustment period will be a huge thing in our household. There will be a huge change in our lifestyle now. And everybody in our household is affected. There will also be a role reversal in some aspect and that is inevitable. And for sure there will be a lot of whining along the way but we will be able to overcome them eventually.

Oh well, starting the year right is easy if you have a positive attitude. I have reasons to be negative due to the economy. I have alibis to be cynical because my new job is just part-time and can barely add up to all the bills that we have to pay. And I have fears that won’t go away because of the bad experiences I had last year. But still with a strong faith in God, I know we will survive… just like every year that passed.

Happy New Year Everyone! Let’s start the year right… right now!
