Ushering In 2012: Brand New Year; Brand New Hope!

In less than 48 hours time, we are going to bid farewell to the eventful 2011 and ushering in the brand new year of 2012. 2011 marked the year with many natural disasters, like the deadly quake in New Zealand (Feb 2011), the massive quake and tsunami in Northern Japan (Mar 2011) and the recent flood in Thailand (Oct 2011). I have a feeling that this is the way mother earth showing us her discomfort and she is getting sicker and sicker. Thus, more effort is expected from humankind to heal the earth!

Also, in 2011, we bid farewell to quite a number of public figures (both famous and infamous), like Osama Bin Laden, Muammar Gaddafi, Steve Jobs, Amy Winehouse and most recently, Kim Jong Il.

Of course, there are a fair share of positive news and spirited events happening in 2011 as well. The most notable ones being The Royal Wedding of Prince Charles and maybe the launch of Siri (kind of new technology [voice recognition] gone main stream).

Regardless of which walk of life you are coming from, I hope 2012 will be an uplifting year for you and your loved ones! As my CEO always said, THE BEST IS YET TO COME! Having said that, the most important moment is not in the future or the past, but NOW! Thus, we all need to seize the moment and live our life to the fullest NOW.

By the way, I just noticed that there is a Holiday called National Hug Day on 21/01/2011 (what a sweet way to declare and name the Holiday). Too bad it's only made official in selected countries only and it's not a Public Holiday. To find out more details, please check out National Hug Day (source: wikipedia).

Hugging is a physical expression of closeness, friendship and bonding. I am fully supporting it (how I wish we have National Hug Day here in Singapore as well ;-)). To cultivate the idea of hugging, I've created a simple quote basing on the word HUG: 

"Happiness Uplift Goodness"

Hope you folks like it and feel free to inspire it forward by sharing it.
