Live Well and Be Happy

Undoubtedly, 2020 had been a tumultuous year for all of us. For some, it could even be a year of sadness and loss. Loss of freedom, loss of stability, loss of jobs, and even loss of loved ones. As I'm writing this, the world is still battling hard with the pandemic. 

As we stepped into 2021, let's embrace Faith, Hope and Love. We will continue to learn new things, change and transform our lives to accommodate new ways of working, playing and living. Focus on family, health and the environment. Keep our mind and body active always. Besides family, remember that friends play an important role in our social and mental health. So, my friends, have a truly blessed new year. Whatever life throws at you; all this will pass.    

We still look forward to your content contribution. Be it written articles, poems, photographs, or activities that you wish to share, we will be pleased to publish them on AutumnLife. If you have read an interesting book, please contribute to our Book Corner.
