Goodbye 2012, Hello 2013

“Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties.” Helen Keller.

It is hard to write about 2012. In this supposedly auspicious Chinese year of the dragon, we seemed to have a fiery dragon. The news has constantly been filled with unpleasant things, from the start to the end of the year.

Perhaps 2013 may not get rosier. So my new year’s wish for all is this quote I found by Helen Keller. Blind and deaf since she was 19 months, Helen Keller overcame great difficulties to become the first deafblind to graduate with a Bachelor degree. She became a world famous speaker and authored 12 books and many articles.

There will constantly be challenges in life. Helen Keller is imminently qualified to speak about challenges, having to live her life in blindness and total silence. Yet she overcame these to become a powerful influence to others around her.

We recently earned the unenviable title of being the most emotionless and unhappy country in the world. May you find strength to be happy and joyful in 2013. The key to success and happiness is in your hands.

Happy new year!
