Looking Back At 2009

Monday, January 04, 2010
It is already the 4th day of 2010 and looking back at 2009 seems a little bit late. Maybe it might be more appropriate to Welcome 2010. But, I really love to look back at the reflections of life. I think it fills the soul with more gratitude. This particular reflection here focuses on my blogging year.

Lokking back at 2009
January 2009. The beginning of my blog Music of My Life. I have been going through so much joy and wonderful new friendships. Meeting amazing characters all over the world who taught me about the beauty of life through your eyes. Thanks to each of you for adding more color to my life.

February 2009. The first time I found out about memes in the Blogosphere. This point had lead me to a great passion for photography. Looking through the lens can be really eye-opening. You start to look more into your surroundings to find even more beauties of life, even if you are not a pro.

March 2009. The sudden loss of my beloved aunt was one of the hardest moments in my life last year. I still miss her very much. Thank you for all the uplifting words through this harsh time.

April 2009. My most active blogging time with 49 posts. You might say that I have found a lovely releasing channel. I received wonderful tips about photography like macro shots and participated in many wonderful new memes that have been released on this particular month.

May 2009. It was my honor to be Today's Flowers Guest Friend. My post was a tribute to my aunt who passed away in March. The Hieroglyphics of Angels features the blossoming flowers in her beautiful garden, not long after the funeral. I don't know why, but they seemed even prettier than before. Looking at them felt like she was trying to say that life goes on and we shouldn't miss on the beauty.
Flowers have spoken to me more than I can tell in written words. They are the hieroglyphics of angels, loved by all men for the beauty of their character, though few can decipher even fragments of their meaning.

June 2009. Continue sharing my thoughts on random topics like music, Indonesia, idioms and thinking green.

July-August 2009. The lowest points in my blogging year with only 4 and 7 posts due to my sickness.

September-October 2009. The Tasikmalaya and Sumatera earthquake at the end of September and beginning of October belong to the most moving highlights of 2009. I really hope that no one has to go through so much loss and sorrow again.

November 2009. I enjoyed changing my personal blog template and didn't expect to end up with a lot more new blogs in the process.

December 2009.
A month full of lovely celebrations and holidays, but also sickness in our family. I hope that everything gets better this year. Wishing you all the best for 2010, my dear friends!

Thanks for every visit and comment to Music of My Life.
Keep a song in your heart.

Hi ROSIDAH, it's good to reflect - 'coz it's easy to forget as life just moves along! You're right - eversince I started handling the camera more, amateurish as I am, taking time to look thro the lens, there's always great stories to tell! keep blogging, my friend!

I haven't had time to reflect back but I'm going to sit down and do just that. I think it's good to look back and appreciate where we've been.
Here's hoping the New Year will be a happy, healthy one for you and yours.
Many Blessings my friend!

penny said...

Happy New Year to you, too. I hope it is a healthy one for all of you.

Taking time to reflect occasionally is a good thing. I did it at Sacred Ruminations on the 31st of December. Like you ... this year a passion for photography flourished and I shared more pictures than writing in 2009. I'm hoping to find some 'balance' in 2010. I love what you've done with your blog template and one of these days perhaps I'll experiment with mine. May you have many joy filled opportunities and experiences in the new decade!
Hugs and blessings,
