A Post of Thanks and Things…

Sometimes, some of the most unremarkable choices you make in life lead to some very remarkable discoveries.

My decision to start to blog (again) wasn’t something that I randomly picked out of the air.  Previously in a life long past, my then online journal was regularly inundated with angsty, childish rantings for well over 7 years, before it finally reached its natural conclusion.  Lately, in my continuous search for direction in life, I felt the fresh need to compile some of my many thoughts.

First and foremost, I’d like to take a moment to express my thanks towards a certain few people for various reasons.

To CherryChan108, my little sister and best friend who gave me the courage to write again.  In a recent post, she mentions (much to my embarrassment) how I should be ruling the world and how much she envies who I am, when little does she know that it is I, who is envious of her.  Despite being older, I am in a place in my life where nothing has quite turned out how I imagined it.  This is not to say I am not grateful for what I do have; I am extremely thankful, but I still struggle everyday to find my way and frequently find myself in a state of suspension.  She on the other hand, is marching forwards everyday; heading towards what she loves and what she’s good at.  Without really thinking about it, she has singlehandedly built herself a small empire of followers who thirst for her knowledge, her expertise and her opinion.  All of the small, individual things that she has accomplished as a self-taught beauty and make-up guru, have come together to form the foundations of what I know will be a great success in the future.  And despite the hardships, and the tears (and I know there have been many, many tears) she has continued and will continue doing what she loves.  This is also precisely the reason why it is she who will be ruling the world.

She also recently awarded me The Haute Mess Award for my Blog, but even though we both fail to understand what such a bizarrely named award means, I do know that my Blog is not deserving of it.  In my book, 2 lonely posts do not warrant an award, and so I must stand down from such a nomination.  (In any case, I’m sure it has something to do with being uber-glamorous and that is something my Blog surely is not!)

The second person I have to thank is an old school friend, whose genuine interest and support in my Blog really made my day.  She was right when she mentioned how daunting it can be to begin writing, and even now I still find myself struggling with words from time to time from such a long period of inactivity.  But knowing that even friends I haven’t seen in a long time still want to hear what I have to say, makes me smile endlessly.

And last but not least my shadow, my good-half; my boyfriend of 9 years: thank you for being my biggest fan in everything that I do and for being the first person to subscribe to my Blog.  You are usually the first person to read anything I write, but now that you’re a subscriber you will have to wait until your email alerts you like everyone else!  🙂

And now, for other less savoury things…

I learnt today that my beloved grandfather has contracted Tuberculosis.  Thankfully it was diagnosed early and the doctors have assured us that it is just a matter of treatment.  But the news made my heart do flips because my grandfather lives 6000 miles away in Hong Kong, and there is little chance of us being able to visit him.  Incidents like these have a knack of lamping you in the face and stops you in your tracks.  Just when you thought your loved ones would live forever you are harshly reminded of the fragile mortality of humans.  Take a moment to think of those in your heart near and far, and make an effort to reach out to them.  Because nothing in life is guaranteed.

And that, concludes my hormone-induced post of the day.

    Hey lady! I think we need to meet up real soon and start some trouble (like plotting to strand ESWs on the roof of your house) and then have a hot chocolate and a muffin, so that I can read of these exploits!

    Well done! xxx

      Yes indeed! We don’t have much luck with the coffee and muffins at all!
