Happy New Year

I made an effort to let go and keep things in 2014.
Did I fail or succeed?
Who could tell?
Did I fall short on anyone’s expectations?
I’m sorry.
Who’s to blame?
No one.
Either the circumstances or the people
were intentionally involved .
They come for a reason. To prune and let me grow.
I looked back how did 2014 shape me.
I traced back how did I gather forces to keep myself going.
I realize my weakness teaches me to choose better decisions.
My strength gives me courage to crop out grainy backgrounds.
The hurts and happiness are probably painted differently.
But they are just adjacent rooms.
I may sit or lie down there for a while in varied reactions.
But no regrets at all.
Anyway, the blue and red always blend in harmony.
The 2015 is here to come.
Few minutes left to say goodbye to 2014.
The pages of days and months unfold endlessly.
So goes my way to lead a life continuously.
