It is an old Chinese tradition that we send good wishes to relatives, friends, and colleagues on Lunar Chinese New Year Evening and the day after, very similar to what people do at Christmas.
Every year abundant luxury new words are used in expressing these good wishes, to align with an animal year theme, covering wealth, health, happiness, and success, not mentioning those emojis, images, and stickers.
I am a simple person, starting from paper card time into the digital age, I preferred to use the most simple idiom for all my connections for many years: “心想事成”.
Simply translate these four Chinese characters into English, they are “heart or mind”, “wish”, “things”, “become true or success”.
After all those years, simply following my heart has brought me to be who I am destined to be today. When looking back, I feel big relief from the journeys I have traveled, with all those good or not good.
But filling my heart with positive wishes and simply acted on it every day, is the biggest joy I am harvesting.
The human mind has the invisible power to transform impossible into possible.
Stay simple, stay positive. Let’s embrace the digital age and new technology.
