2012 Uncensored

It is almost the end of the year. I can't believe it is only three more days before 2012 actually will leave us, or maybe we're leaving 2012? LOL I'm not that sure also. What I can say is simply this year has been bringing me too many blessings and I really can't stop thanking God for each day of it.

When 2012 first started I set some goals for myself and I am proud to say that almost all of them are achieved. Thank Lord for that and today in this post I really want to list some things that I learned this year and also things that made my 2012 beautiful. And oh yaa, please bear with some random photos because I just really wanted to put some pictures from 2012 as a memory :P

This year I managed to get myself some side jobs (sell airplanes tickets, helping people in trading service, translating and also teaching), earned some extra money (was not that much though LOL) and proudly announced that with the money I managed to get Pa and Ma a gift. It was not a too-expensive gift that is to be proud of but what made me proud that they liked it and they appreciated it.

The other thing that is really to be thankful for, that I am surrounded by people that are so lovely and have been blessings for me. I mean like God kept taking a very good care of me by those around. They didn't only do me good things but also from each person I learned different lessons and I just felt like I am the most blessed person in the whole world :D

By the way, this year I also turned 21. I believe it is not a really young age (not old too, though LOL) and I believe that this is a start for me before heading for a tougher future ahead, as an adult. I tried to cut off the negativity inside me as much as I can, even though I know nobody is perfect, but I am aiming to day by day be closer to it. Beside, this will be the last age for me in college nooooooooooo. HAHA. But hey, the most important thing is to realize that God has been here with me for more than 21 years, every single day, not even one missed :)

Managed to visit so many new places that I've never been to. I went to Phuket and Koh Samui with my family, China road trip (Wuhan, Nanjing, Suzhou, Shanghai, Hangzhou) with Chintia, Hanoi and Halong Bay with Arbi, Albert and Ika. I really enjoy traveling and I really really hoped that next year I'll go to other great places that will bring me a lot of new experiences. AMEN to that :)

I also got so many blessings through my ministry at church, I hoped for a better GBI GZ Youth that I kind of lead and I thought that it really did become better and I believed improvement has no limit and we got to keep trying our best. I thanked God for the opportunity He has given me to serve Him. And by the way, this year I managed to finish my second Bible reading. Can't wait to get to the third :)

Ahh almost forgot! This year I had the chance to do more about things I am passionate about. I did my first music cover with Agustin (GO GO GOGI) and also did a lot of nail arts. It was really great and cool for me :))

The other small things I did but I am really glad I did is I blog quiet often, even though it was not started since 2012 began, but I am really glad I started to blog more often and now looking back at the old posts just make me feel so good. I feel like I managed to keep my life on track. So actually, keep blogging was one of my 2013 resolutions (spoiler alert LOL).

Guess I'm done with writing the things. I'm really that not good when it comes to writing. I feel like I should have write more and better but I just can't LOL. So as the semi-closing of the post, this is the most important lesson that I got this year. BEING GRATEFUL. Seriously, this is an old lesson that everybody may have known but this year, this is the biggest thing I learned.

As they say it is not the happy person that is grateful, but it is the grateful person that is happy. I experienced that and now I know. I learned that being grateful is not just about accepting big things that make you happy. Gratitude is about every little thing in life. Giving thanks is to realize that God is always there for you. His presence exists in every single time in your life. Even waking up in the morning already is something to be thankful for, if you just look and think closer. So I am learning that I should be more grateful day by day because I believe that there is no highest limit in giving thanks.

So, I am thanking God for every little thing in my life that God has given to me. For great people around me, for the care they always gave to me, for the best school I believed Lord has placed me in, for my best family, for my best dorm, for the great community I am in, for everything.

Now the thing is that I really can't wait for 2013 and start counting blessings (literally) :)
