Start each day with a prayer of gratitude
As the year closes to an end, again I am filled with the utmost gratitude that increases each and every single year. THANK YOU. I do not know what I have done to deserve such blessings in my life over and over and over. Is it my Mother’s lifetime sacrifice that has paid for all this? Is it karma? Am I just damn bloody lucky? Is the law of attraction and abundance working? Do I attract only good energy? What is it??? I don’t know but what I do know is that I need to continue the circle of life to bless others. It is the only way that I know because it is all that my Mother ever did. When she got cheated over and over, she forgave. When she was slandered and ripped, she endured. When she was chucked to the dogs, she fought to survive. You name it, she’s done it. Thank GOD I have had such a good life and never had to come close to what she had gone through. I am eternally grateful. Even now as she looks down at us from above, I know she is still at work. Whenever we are looking for parking, she always, always, ALWAYS finds us prime parking spots, ALWAYS!!! And for whatever my girls wish for, if they are ever in a dilemma or in a fix, their Nana up in Heaven, always sorts it out for them. I am SURE of it. We are just incredibly lucky!!! My girls are always happy and healthy and we have so much fun together that I just do not know any other way to express my gratitude to the Universe for even allowing my late Mom to continue helping us with my dearest friend Fatty as well. I certainly and absolutely feel their love from up above.
It has not been a year without challenges. The business has brought on a series of emotions from pain to elation and there has been the usual back stabbers and bitching but I am so passed that now. I have the women of 2014 to thank for preparing me for this. Everything happens for a reason. People have tried to bring me down and now change their tune to the effect of motivating me to soar. What a joke. But never mind that. For all the ills, I have a hundred thousand more gains because I have helped so many people this year gain better health, healed their problems be it health or financial, and the warmth that comes from this when a parent thanks you with eyes filled with tears of joy because their child has healed just cannot be replaced nor quantified. When a man thanks you wholeheartedly because you have helped his financial woes when his entire life savings have been stripped from unfortunate circumstances, you know that you have an additional ally for life. Not that I will be needing it because I have everything already and although I am not in the best of health, I am so confident that I have sufficient prayers to see me through a very good and long life to come. THANK YOU.
So what has been the greatest big bang to my year??? Apart from earning a sweet income that enables my husband to retire from his full time job you mean??? I recently made an impulse trip to Taiwan because my friend wanted to go so I decided to support her and go too and BANG!!! I came home with an additional USD5,000 cheque for winning the 2nd place in Naturally Plus for SHARING WITH INTEGRITY. It really wasn’t that difficult and the cheque is not a big deal seeing that the company pays me so much more every week anyway; it is the recognition that despite the fact that I was abandoned and pushed away, I rose beyond without the act of performing anything unethical and have grown a steady business with a strong foundation. Yay me. YAY ME!!!
We brought the girls for a whirlwind trip to Hong Kong just before Taiwan and had a blast. 120 hours of solid family quality time. Christmas is planned with family from abroad and I just know it is going to be a super happy occasion together with New Year’s Eve and next year, we start running again for my new projects. Yes, I am expanding several new projects because I can and because I do not want to leave all my eggs in one basket. Am I a solid entrepreneur? You bet. But one with a heart that needs to be pushed by my friends to harden up because entrepreneurs are usually hard and shrewd, but not me. I try but fail miserably so thank goodness for real friends and my business partners who have stuck with me through thick and thin.
My schedule up to March is now full house and I honestly can say that I do feel like Wonder Woman. REALLY. I myself cannot comprehend how much I do every single day and do it with the biggest smile. I have a PA of course who is the greatest blessing who makes my life so much easier. Love her to bits to the end of the moon.
We booked a Japan holiday for February with a penthouse outdoor jacuzzi for the girls to have their own huge balcony of snow. They are such boring farts that they only want to go to the same places over and over again whereas I want to explore the world with new places all the time. But to them, they have fallen in love with some places and just want to revisit over and over and over. What shall I do with this dilemma??? Take my girlfriends to the places that I want to go to that my kids don’t, that’s how! But for Christmas next year, we will spend it in Europe because THAT is the plan so no matter what they moan and whinge about, we are going to do that Italy trip and hop over to Godma Jamie in Holland to visit her little girl Mikaela; then hop over to the UK but of course to visit my friends and that is probably all the time we have enough for because Italy will take up the bulk of the holiday. Club Med Phuket is coming up in April, Kota Bharu in January for Chinese New Year, Japan with Naturally Plus in October and Germany in November. I need to bring the kids somewhere in August too for the Summer Holidays. Well, I don’t NEED to but heck, this is our life now. Travel IS education. Almost half my year is out of Malaysia, can you believe it? I can only see the future of America coming soon onto my travel map seeing that it involves one of my new businesses. And today the girls mentioned about visiting Santa Claus in Finland.
I have learnt so much this year. Just one night in Taiwan, I learnt this amazing back exercise that actually focuses on the brain to remove back pain. I was in pain on travel day because i had walked 100,000 steps in Hong Kong prior and then had to fly to Taiwan the next day after so that day, I was squatting down wherever and whenever at the airport when there were no actual seats or when I was queueing at immigration. It was embarrassing but I could not bear the pain. Then that evening, my Japanese friend came to my hotel room and taught me this exercise and voila!! Next day, I went through the whole Taiwan Dash convention with ZERO pain despite the standing on stage and walking here and there and traveling back that very same night. AMAZING!!! What a priceless piece of knowledge!!!!
I also learnt about karma and yuen fan and my win just sealed the deal that karma is really true.**************************************************************************
