Christmas and New Year's Eve have always been occasions to bond with family and friends. Mine was like that. Yet it was also so much more. I was given a chance to reach out and connect on a much deeper level this time. The surprising thing is that only then did it dawned on me that the more you connect with someone, the more you also connect with, and discover yourself.

I already know through experience that the quality of people you are with are mainly the reasons why you stay longer for a job, a conversation, or any other sort of experience. However, only now did I really understand that our lives are mainly shaped by our experiences with people. Our perspectives are colored by how we feel and these feelings are created through our interactions with each other. Thus, how we feel about life and how we make decisions about it depends on both the quality of people we are with, and that of our experiences with them. Positive people and events evoke positive feelings in us and empower us. Negative experiences, on the other hand, weaken us and limits the capacity of our human potential.

So I say, reach. Reach out to someone and at the same time, reach within. Let us all find the courage to share the best of ourselves with others every time we get the chance to. Connecting is the first step to awareness and therefore, to meaning. And when we have found meaning, we cease to exist. We begin to live.  

Have a blessed 2011! :)
