July 2011 is unlike any other July I had in my life, as far as I can remember.
Given the fact that I’m getting older faster than I should, I guess it is safe to say that my memory does go quite far.
What happened prior to school is the one part in my life I find not easy to recall. My family moved to and went back from the capital in early 1980’s so I think that can be the reason behind the blur memory.
When it comes to the month of July, what I have are some special July moments when I was a kid. However, I will save them for another blog. This July taught me many lessons that can be summarized into one simple sentence.
Life is too short so stick to what matters the most!
If truth be told, I’m glad that I got things done in July 2011. However, it didn’t happen without any challenges. To my surprise, unlike previous years, this time it doesn’t matter anymore. It is incredibly amazing to see those challenges came with their own solutions. I can say this, two of my prayers in 2010 were answered in July 2011!
In this busy life with all of its hustle and bustle, it is easy to be distracted by things and people that don’t really matter if we could just at least ‘try’ to be honest with ourselves. A dear friend of mine, for instance, spent years just to realize that the opportunity she once saw was just another long and winding detour!
So yes, I’m glad I stick to what matters the most which is my family.
All the challenges in life are bearable because they actually made us closer – to one another and to our dreams. My dad told me this; nobody is telling you that life is easy but no matter what, your families will always be there for you. And he’s absolutely right!
I know, I’m lucky. Therefore, I’m grateful.
