2016 a New Chapter

Sunday, 3 January 2016

Here we are. It is that time of the year where we all go through our bags of memories, setting down new goals for the year that’s to come.
It is a fact : time flies unbelievably quickly and looking back at everything that has happened, I cannot believe we are headed towards 2016 already. It feels like just yesterday, I was still that 9 year old girl living in my little house with my turtles, my birds, my kakek ayam and the one and only my lovely Daddy, dreaming about the world and being so scared of what the future holds for her… Now, my approach to future has drastically changed. Life has taught me that we have this incredible power, this marvelous capacity to actually shape it. Even though a lot of people are against this idea, they might say that our path is written in the stars… I think destiny is an excuse to wait for things to happen instead of making them happen. Some people say they can’t keep their resolutions so they don’t make any. However my tradition on the 31st December of each year is to sit down with a cup of tea (but this year with hot chocolate), my cat and write down, by digging deep in my heart, all these things that I want to manifest in the year to come and do everything that’s in my power to make them happen.

Starting the year with a burst of positive energy and hope is truly priceless. And don’t get me wrong, I don’t try to plan everything ahead. Letting life surprise you and receiving unexpected lessons is what makes living so enjoyable and exciting after all. How boring would it be if each challenge, if each goal we had was so easy to accomplish… My resolutions gravitate towards a general vision. Certain things I’d like to keep up, others that I’d like to initiate. Some things I write down aren’t specific but more encouraging, challenging me to do things differently, to question my perception and think even more outside the box. If there’s one thing that 2015 has taught me, well it is to do so. To let go of fear, let go of apprehension or of what other people might think, to let go of any judgments and just live. Live each day with a big open mind, big open eyes, aware, conscious and taking each element of life like a new lesson. Since the beginning of this blog, I’ve noticed myself go through so many psychological stages which was translated in either the photography or my texts. Having you guys in my life has actually been one of the most constructive experiences. It made me question so many things and seek for new, different perspectives.

When 2015 kicked off, I felt a new energy within me. And this, because I knew that so many incredible things were about to happen. 

My Dad have always taught me to embrace everything in life with thankfull and gratefulness because nothing comes easy, nothing should be taken for granted and nothing lasts for ever. I sincerely believe in that it is the reason why, to this day, each achievement, each smile on your faces, each song I get to dancing, each moment spent with my best friends, each plane ride, each holiday, each sushi I get to eat, all these things will always make my heart burst out of joy and happiness and you won’t ever, e-v-e-r, hear me complain. Because there are truly no reasons to. We all go though highs and lows in our lives, it is how we approach the rise and fall that determines who we are as human beings.

This year symbolized a big change in my life. I moved out of my house, a place where I grew up, the very room where I began Landelane and my town where I used to wander around after school for long hours to move in another house. I won’t lie. During 2015, I have truly felt like I was leading a double life. 

So as I was writing down my resolutions this morning, I thought, well there’s truly nothing I would change. All I want, is just to keep going. To keep living, to keep dreaming, to keep enjoying. Everything that needs to happen will happen, everything that shouldn’t, won’t. If you keep your head focused on where you’re going, you’ll get there no matter what. But enjoying each step of getting there is what’s truly special. To me, nothing would be worth this ride if it was without these moments with my best friend Mama Mita, if I couldn’t share each accomplishment with my future husband, call my Dad each time I need to hear his voice, or share it all with you guys. 
I am so proud and happy for it all. We started from scratch and we are building something truly magical. 

So get ready 2016, we’re coming for you.  

Happy New Year my loves.
