Peace Wisher would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year!
Wishing everyone a fruitful, Joyful and Wonderful 2009 ahead.
There are many events happened in 2008, i think one of the biggest break through that happened in 2008 is Barack Obama elected as the first African American president in the United States of America.
Pray that there will be no more war, no more hunger in this world. The economy of the world will bounce back miraculously.
Let's do our part to make this world a beautiful place to live.
2008 just flies like a rocket, sometimes when i look back it is like a dream, i don't really feel that i have done much but thank God that i saw some achievement in certain things in life, i learned to count my blessing each day, this is a superb way to find contentment in life.
I am happy with what i have and i wish everyone does.
When we pray we ask for more wisdom rather than less problem because when we face problems or challenges in life this is the time that we really learn; thus, it makes you a stronger person.
When we start to curse our days, we feel frustrated with our lives when things didn't go our way we will tend to be 'self pity' and said how unlucky we are, but whenever you have this kind of thoughts pause for a moment! look at those in poor countries, who doesn't have food to eat, clean water to drink and you still have food on your table, are you really that 'unlucky' ? Look at those in the war they don't even know if the next second they will still be able to live, their home been ruined, theres not shelter for them, everyday they have to live in fear, how about that? are you really that 'unlucky'?
If we can train ourselves to give more than take, after awhile you will notice you are a happier person.
We tend to take our blessing for granted, we always overlooked some blessings in life but instead we focus on the 'unlucky' events. For instance, when you get a parking at work do you count it as a blessing? but when you can't find a parking you will get frustrated, but if you compare the ratio of you getting parking to unable to get parking your blessing ratio is much much higher!
another blessing is, we are able to get up in the morning and still breathing, some people can't even get up the next morning.
I hope in 2009 we will not let the frustration and self pity overpowered us but instead we let the blessings and joy immerse us.
Happy Happy Happy 2009 to the world.
