Congrats milestoners ! A good day to celebrate your milestone as its a new year (Chinese !) with new beginnings and you've all started the year perfectly ! Keep marching forward into this year refreshed and emboldened !

Happy Chinese New Year to all ! May it bring good fortune and happiness to all !

Fortunately, my mother's function went well. My brother and I were very civil to each other. My mother was very happy with the family event and it went smoothly. Prior to the function, I resolved to keep a positive state of mind and to only think of helping everyone at the function celebrate and enjoy. Thankfully, that worked !

Another 24 hours of serenity, calm and sobriety pls ! Its 8:01am here !

I don't know how all this stuff works and the more I read and try to understand the farther I find myself from the answers I'm looking for. So I will just stand at the end of the pier and look out at the blue Pacific and be content in the cloud of unknowing. I will breathe, and breathe again.

But enough dreaming, another 24 hours sounds very good to me right now.

Feel much better soon, EternalNow. The answers will come to you; wait and watch for them. So many answers can be found in the true appreciation of the goodness in every sober day.
