Another crazy thing about heartbreak is that even if you can see it from a mile away, it doesn’t hurt any less.
Both times I’ve experienced heartbreak, I had envisaged it, but that doesn’t ease the impact. As a matter of fact, it hurt more.
It felt good seeing friends after a long time. That feeling is priceless. Those are moments we’ll remember with smiles as we get older.
Happy birthday, mummy. I pray you live long in health and wealth to celebrate more of this, and more with your children.
Watch yourself. Before you mention that the other person is getting emotional or sentimental, ask yourself, am I being emotional right now?
A running theme in my journal this year has been the distance between knowing and doing.

To conclude the introductory part of Josh Journal, I want to wish you a Happy-Happy New Year.
This year, I sincerely want you to be happy.
This year though, I am stepping it up a notch and actually getting active. More exercise, more movement, more fitness.

I should preface this by stating that my financial life has been a big mess.
So when I wish you a happy financial new year, you would do well by wishing me the same.
If someone wishes you a happy spiritual new year, what are you supposed to reply?
Same to you?
Whatever the right answer might be, I do wish you a happy spiritual new year.
I don’t know if that phrase makes sense, but I hope you understand my sentiment.
Some of us have stopped studying since we left school. There are even some people who only read when preparing for exams. What a pity.
How are you supposed to grow in life if you have stopped learning?
Happy New Year is the salutation we are used to when we flip the calendar to start a new year, but I need to switch that to a Happy Creative New Year.
