kochi - botanical garden
Kochi is a place very, very close to my heart without me really realising this until I got around to type up this post. Kochi was the place where I realised I was at peace with myself and my own reality. I realised that however hard life would feel like — like it had, or like it would be — I could find solace in the fact that I have myself to get through it.

Of course, I became increasingly aware of the importance of my relationship with God, my
family and my friends in my life. Because I wouldn’t want to be able to do it all without them. But it was great to feel that, in that moment, I was my own best friend.

 Hello friends~! I think I’m just in time to wish you all a happy new year still! It’s been a little while since we’ve talked. And I need to ask you guys a tiny favour.

You see, I intend to fully enjoy 2017. And I actually thought of, and made my resolutions early this year. And there is this little thing that I really want to do: dwell on the particulars of each season and month. Really become more aware and conscious of the little things that life has to offer us.

It has become a little tradition for me, to revive myself and this blog during Advent and the Twelve Days of Christmas. And because I record my resolutions yearly, it makes me want to become better at keeping them. But also be better at making them. So I’m starting ‘early’ this year (before Christmas!!).

I recently had a conversation with a good friend about the concept of a bucket list. The main reason we had this conversation was because bucket-lists don’t really work out that great in day to day life. It’s a bit of a ‘someday’ thing. And we all know that ‘someday’ is not a day in the week. Someday hardly ever happens. We’ve got to actively pursue the things we want to do, and convert our somedays to everydays.

Ok, so maybe not every day. But day-to-day life can do with a little more ‘someday’. And I figured: what better way to start out then with resolutions. And maybe we can start out changing our habits a little bit – and that’s where we go full circle (it’s not big of a circle) again for the everyday resolutions.

Bottom-line/tl;dr: in my opinion resolutions are still not bullshit and we can still better ourselves in our daily lives to become better persons with more fun lives.
