Happy Leap Year Day

Last year, I wrote a letter to myself on futureme.org on Feb 18 2015

Checked my gmail account today and stumbled upon the reminder for myself

The past year has been personal reflection and growth for me. I completed at least 2 of the 3 things mentioned there too. I’ve come to the point of my life where I’m seriously thinking about settling down.

Its funny how things can change within a year. I found happiness when I wasn’t really looking intently. The man who came into my life, came at the point when “love comes when you least expect it to” and it is in the most surprising and unexpected way.

This man fulfills almost whatever mental checklist I have about a person; what I think God’s best for me is. The list became void as I got to know him along the way. It started from being acquaintance, to friends, good friends and to where we are at right now. We’re still dating to know each other better and hopefully, progress even further from this point forth.

Whatever the outcome may be, I know that God is in control and that I should trust in Him. 🙂

The month of love

So it’s the start of February, and it’s a leap year!

Gonna spend 1/3 of this month travelling in Tasmania. Excited for the trip but some apprehensiveness as well…just praying for journey mercy and a good time with my travel mates.

February is my favorite month of the year, not because it’s my birthday month but because its the season of love.

This year, I’m challenging myself to love people whom I struggle to love- people in my workplace, people in church etc. I find it difficult to extend God’s love to some people. I pray constantly that God will help me to manage my emotions and tolerance around people whom I find hard to love. No one said it was easy.

I’m a peace lover, I tend to avoid conflicts/confronting others. However if I were to have to confront someone, I need to do it in a loving manner. I need to exercise caution in pointing out the flaws/areas for improvements because I dont wish to hurt others.

Loving someone is never easy. It cannot be accomplished by mere human efforts…..
