A Better Forward

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! :)

i do have the anne frank concept earlier on...but is slowly withering...dunno whether it is a good thing or bad?

I was quite cynical before this. But I think I need to remind myself of this when one starts to think of negative things.

For example, a criminal may be a bad person, but he loves his family a lot. However, I would not advise being a criminal of coz. Just a thought.

oh, anne frank - the poster child for wide-eyed idealism. she died too young to grow cynical.

perhaps. but with the things the nazis did to her, you would have thought she would be at least a tad cynical. i know i was, even at a younger age. :P
