2016

As I typed that "2016" as the title for this blog post, it reminds me of one of my favourite movies (don't judge please LOL) "2012", the end-of-the-world movie starring John Cusack and some other notable actors whom I can't just recall their names.

Anyway, it's been a great year I think, and I couldn't thank Him enough for all the things he has blessed me with. My bad, scratch that off, for everything he has been blessing me with. And I look forward to 2017. Man, 3 series dah!

Maybe before I sign off (gotta sleep early to catch Liverpool vs Manchester City with JB Liverpool gang) I'd like to touch on one or two things.

I just can't help but feel a bit, disturbed, by the reactions shared on Facebook because of the passing of a number of famous celebrities. Sure, I too was sad upon learning the latest news of the Carrie Fisher's death. It is just that, I think it is an exaggeration to claim 2016 is the worst year ever, and how 2016 just has to take another life, and to keep your favourite celebrities/people safe by hiding at home.

Maybe they were also trying to cope with the sudden losses hence such response.

What I have come to terms with life, in 2016 is that, life is meant to be whole and the only way it can be whole is if you accept all the good and bad thrown at you. You can't expect life to deal you a good hand.

That everyone you love, fond of, will live forever and be around you for eternity. That money is just gonna roll in your bank account. That everyone likes you.

Sure, grieve, cry, sleep in, stay at home. But after that, you get back up. And learn from all that.

To whine and complain 2016 has been terrible and devastating, I think is not fair. For you to overlook the good things that happened to you for the past 52 weeks of 2016.

Be more grateful, thankful and appreciative of the blessings you have received thus far.
