As we usher in the year of the big cat, may we adopt the qualities of this magnificent creature.
Just like the tiger…
~ focus on what you care about;
~ don’t lose sleep over the opinion of a sheep;
~ remember that the strongest ones are the ones who are not afraid to stand alone;
~ to achieve your goals, all you need is a clear vision and a burning desire;
~ and sometimes you just need to roar a little louder.
❤️Wishing you a marvelous
year of the Tiger

Chinese New Year begins tomorrow, 16th February and 2018 will be the year of the dog. As you know, the dog is a symbol of loyalty, honesty and faithfulness. Besides, if you spell ‘dog’ backwards, it becomes ‘god’.
This new year, I’m reminded of the lessons learned from our slobbering pets.
Lesson #1: The joy of living in the now
Dogs do not think about yesterday nor do they worry about what’s going to happen tomorrow. They live in the now.
Lesson #2: There is always time for playtime
Dogs understood the importance of playtime for healthy mind, body and soul.
Lesson #3: In life, we sometimes messed up
It’s okay to mess up. Just shake it off, clean yourself up and move on.
Lesson #4: Dig deeper
Dogs are persistent when it comes to digging for their buried bone/treasure. Sometimes, we need to persevere and dig deeper to reach our goals.
Lesson #5: Loyalty stills counts
Canines are loyal to their humans and animal friends due to their patience and selflessness.
Lesson #6: Give unconditional love and expect nothing in return
Dogs love their humans and animal friends unconditionally because they are sincere, non-judgmental and they do not hold grudges.
The Year of the Rooster is dawning, and NBC wishes you and your loved ones much love, joy, peace and wealth of health with a good dose of laughter.
R – Reach

This Chinese New Year, it is the year of the Monkey and many will be giving wishes for luck, prosperity and good fortune during this festive season. But NBC’s simple wishes for this Lunar New Year are:

According to the Chinese calendar, 2015 is the year of the Goat.
Based on my ‘Catsrology’, the Year of the Goat simply means…
“Gong Xi Fa Cai”
Happy Lunar New Year 2015!
