Standing on the terracotta tile

Staring blankly at the screen, I was reminded why I’ve stopped blogging for months. No inspiration. Nothing. Well I do have a million of things to say. Looking at my blogstats,  I am impressed and  evenmore encouraged to write something now. The fact that some of you guys out there are still visiting my blog (despite months of not updating them.).Let me see if I can come up with something really interesting or at least entertaining for you guys. Hmmm, how am i going to do that.

Things have been crazie for me eversince  I ended my internship early Feb. I’ve been busy till today! ( Actually, truth be told, I wasn’t supposed to blog because I am in the midst of a few major assignments, ALL DUE NEXT WEEK!). I’ve had the aweseome-mest of the awesome-mest CNY celebration this year at home. I don’t know why it was such good times for most of us. I guess as we grow older, our priorities shifted and we began to appreciate the time we have with each other. Family of friends, none of these will go wrong.

Friends. I spend a great deal of time with my friends in this season of my life. Endless lunch and dinner appointments. Birthdays after birthdays. Great time versus Bad times. Love, hate and all that matters. You know who you are. Thank you for being just there for me and give to me endlessly. I just don’t know what I’ll do without you guys. Godsent ‘pillars’ of support that have been nothing but of great encouragement. Although I have very different cliques of friends, but do know that I love each and everyone of you very much.

I agreed to a wedding project. A friend of a friend saw my blog and she loved my creation and wanted to engage in my services. I was pleased of course! I mean, someone out there actually trusted me with her wedding card invitation and before I could agree, I vowed to myself that I am going come up with something totally out of the world for her. It was tough I tell you, to start finalizing all the details because the sky is my limit. I almost gave up as I come up with several mock designs. I am so glad the bride is very particular with particulars! This means, when she finally like a design I did, I know she truly truly loves it!(Amazing girl she is). Anyway, fast forward it all, I finished about 70 cards last sunday! I was on the roll mann. . . and gosh, the feeling was huuuuuuuuge! Seeing all the cards all arranged in a row,  tied with pretty pink ribbons and their embellishments, wow, I din know someone could actually feel this contented!

Despite my neckache, every part of me is itching to dance again ( I am finally scheduled to serve in May. Woot! ) and again, DESPITE my neckache, I agreed to a netball tournament end of this month. sigh.I don’t know what else I want to do because there are just too many things in life that I want to get my hands on. I wanna travel ( gosh this is so generic but yes i will do abit of travelling this july. . .hint: australia?), I want to adopt a puppy (equally generic), and I want to have my own business (hey, this is new) but bottom line is, I really wanted to do so much more than I thought I could.

. . . . .I paused and took another deep breath and ponder abit about the purpose of me getting so busy in life. I know there is more to this as I look forward to each day, everytime I wake up from my bed. I have long thought that the very best insight into what it means to feel all these is to simply consider what is God’s purpose for me and getting to know what is it in His heart. Having saying all these, I just wanna thank Him for all the opportunities that come by my life. The good and the bad, the great and the not-so-great, the pain and the gain, I will always be reminded to praise Him. There are some things that I cannot change and I have to learn to embrace it. I know my past is part of me and sometimes it is not a bad thing. . . sometimes it is really not.

This, I have to accept.

I am a promise of all that’s to come.
