Happy New Year :)


Another year has come to an end, and yes, I'm still here. I survived!

Life isn't easy. It never is. But then, if it was just a bed of roses, then what would we learn? What would we experience? There would be nothing!
So, as another year is now ending, I'm happy...happy because I did not give up even though the thorns pricked hard, even though I had no more tears left to shed, and even though I felt nothing many a times. I did not fall apart! I managed to put myself together. I smiled when the times were bad.
And yes, things do heal with time. I now know that very well.

A very Happy New Year to all of you! I hope you've all had a wonderful year, and I hope that the next one brings even more smiles to all of you :)
Thanks a ton for reading my work, and for inspiring me to write more.

I'll be away from blogging for a couple of time as I have my exams. Though I will try and drop in whenever possible. I hope to see you all when I return :)

Take Care till then!

Happy Blogging!

Love,
Philo x

  25. The days of your 2011 are somewhat like the days of a lot of us. Most of us are going through hard times. I am glad that you have pulled through. God gives us a lot of tests how ever he also gives us the courage to take them.
    Happy New year to you and your loved ones. Keep writing. It is cathartic for me and I am sure it will help you too.

  29. Hello.
    Life is a journey that comes with many ups & downs. We will stumble, we might even fall, but the spirit is strong & compels us to pick ourselves up & continue on, even it means starting the journey over. With age & maturity comes knowledge & understanding. May the upcoming year be filled with much joy, happiness, laughter & most of all love.

    All the best with your exams!
    Thanks for sharing. Appreciate the visits too.
