This coming Chinese New Year  brings in the year of the ‘wood’ horse.

Prediction by Suzan Levit

‘The Wood Horse year is a time of fast victories, unexpected adventure, and surprising romance. It is an excellent year for travel, and the more far away and off the beaten path the better. Energy is high and production is rewarded. Decisive action, not procrastination, brings victory. But you have to act fast in a Horse year. If you are not 100% secure about a decision, then don’t do it. Events move so quickly in a Horse year that you don’t want to gallop off in the wrong direction.’

Today’s sketch of the day is of this little dog that bit me in Myanmar exactly a week ago. I’ve had my tetanus shot and he didn’t look like he had rabies but I was still and am still a bit scared. I haven’t been to the doctors, I know I should but I’m scared of doctors too.

Myanmar is a place full of dogs. They are everywhere. This one is not a stray. It belongs to someone who lives next to a temple in Bagan. I startled it whilst it was sleeping and it woke up and attacked me. I got bitten twice. Once on my right ankle and once on my left heel. It isn’t the best place to be bitten either considering I had to walk barefoot most of the time and climb stairs.

Now, I’m going back to be in denial.

It’s taken me long time for to figure out what I want out of life. I had a very laissez faire attitude because life was easy growing up and then when I entered the real world, when I started working, my life started to go down hill. I’ve analyzed it and I think I have found the reason.

When I was young, I believed I could do and be anything. No one challenged this. The world was my oyster.

When I grew up, I started to lose confidence in my abilities and I lost my way. I did things I had to do and not what I wanted to do. I stopped following my dreams and I forgot what they were after a while. Then I started drifting.  Life knocked me down and kicked me really hard. i didn’t know how to pick myself up. When I was at the bottom and feeling sorry for myself, it didnt take my long to figure things out. It was a wake up call.

My fall started in 2009 and my wake up call was in 2012. Two years on, I look back and think, I have picked myself up and taken small  steps to move forward. I am in charge of my own destiny. I know where I want to go, I just have to figure out how to get there.

I feel positive going into 2014. Thank you bloggers for being there and encouraging me on my journey. I feel truly blessed and thank full.
