Today, my previous uni had a Christmas party and I was kindly invited as well.
It's nice to be in an atmosphere where most people knew each other and the general feeling is of joyful familiarity.
Looking back, this year, I realised that I have stopped the blaming game and the regretting. It's much better to look ahead and put my best foot forward. And because of that, I have come to appreciate what I do have, and to live and enjoy the present the best I can.
The other thing I also realised is that people can change for the better, despite how impossible it may seem previously. Perhaps that quote by Anne Frank can be held true; "I keep my ideals, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart."
I think that, instead of preconceived notions, if you look hard and long enough, people will eventually show you their good side. Perhaps.
Wishing all my readers a very merry Christmas and a happy blissful 2011! :)
