Happy New Year friends :) I hope your holiday was refreshing. For those who had the time to travel somewhere during the holiday season, I'm sure it was unforgettable. The weather has taken most of us by surprise, air travel in most of Europe has been a nightmare (we were in London during its worst winter), east coast USA (not as fun either), and for our friends who went to Korea, you guys must have been penguins to withstand -15 Celcius.
But even if you didn't get to go anywhere far, the holiday is meant for a longer sleep, catching up with old friends and favorite movies, finish that book you've always wanted, and of course the perfect excuse to eat like a pig (most of us gained weight over the holiday).
Now that it's 2011, let's start the new year with new hopes & dreams. Don't be discouraged by yesteryears unfulfilled resolutions. Time to start fresh. Don't let anything or anyone stop you from becoming who you're destined to be. Nothing is impossible. I know it does not come easy, but it all must start as a dream.
Over the new year, i found my journal and began reading what i've written several years ago. Only to find that one by one my dreams are becoming reality. Thank God for His favor.So for this year and many more years to come, I set out to live my dreams. But first it's time to put it on paper, that will make a big difference.
For me this year, i have a longer list to accomplish. First off, I want to meet Nemo & Manta Rays. I have been putting off my diving certification for a while, no more excuses now, it's time for me to get wet and just do it. Next I've always dreamed of spending a month in Italy, to learn how to cook from the locals. So this summer, that's what we'll do. I'm so looking forward to it. I'm sure I'll learn a thing or two on pasta making from the grandmothers in Tuscany. The list goes on and on...and i'm so glad this is the beginning of a new year.
We wish you a fabulous new year, so full of surprises that will always make you smile. Let's live life to the fullest.
