2017 was an unbelievably busy, crazy and sometimes horrid year. 2017 was a year I spent learning about the danger of secrets, the betrayal of silence, the peril of being a woman in an Asian society and then some. Some second opinions and opinions designed on the offence are the most hurtful. I’ve been fed with a plentiful of these opinions.

2018 will be a year to slow down, say less and ignore opinions. It is a year to appreciate and ponder on life. I have my shortcomings too so that need to change. I’ve stopped making resolutions but I would like to spend this year traveling more, reading more, meditating more, writing more, saving more and spending less. I would like to brush up on French. I said that every year. It’s also a year to spend with loved ones.

Here’s to a better year.
