Happy New Year 2016

Happy new

Woke up on the first of January counting my blessings, grateful, thanking the Almighty for one more day, month, hour, minute, seconds and yes, year.

2015 had its rough patches, too many to name, negatives and positives, high and low, met new people, made new friends, challenges of earthquake and tornado proportions but came to the realization that I could not control it, I had no part in it, it was all besides me that it was all His Will and not mine.  Once I came to that realization that I was just riding a long, a passenger on an over the top fancy bus, I surrounded and learned to let go of my will and let be driven. 

The conductor is clever.

I am here, I am alive, I am breathing, I exist and yes, I am cute. Sorry, could not help it. It is part of my DNA to be funny and sarcastic. 

I have my family, friends and angels who I am eternally grateful for, as I keep them tucked in a special corner of my heart. It is what it is and anything else is academic, a bowl of potato soup and sorry to say, just a space on my many sentences.

I foresee 2016 in a different prism, a breakthrough year, at least I am striving for it, hopeful, exciting,  with its inherited challenges. I hope to see you riding along with me through the many hills and vales, roads and highways, curves and waves as I trot the breathing room, tacitly turning the pages of an old book. A new chapter will be written with a mile long subjects and new protagonists in the midst.

To all, an Happy New Year. Wishing you much love, success and prosperity in the roller coaster of 366 days ahead. Stay true to yourself. Yes, it is a leap year, so you will have one more day to content with, be merry.  May God Bless you.

Yes, I am back!

Happy New Year 2015

CardThe Alpes. Annecy, France.

This is the time of the year when we dump our jollies and sorrows, sort and mix them out in one good bowl of jelly. We put all in a balance, measure them as much as we can so to be certain, brush them up, evaluate what we have achieved, erase the garbage and dive into a new menu of good doing for the new year. Booyah, there!

I don’t usually make any list because I never follow through with it. I stop by page two, there is if there was ever a page number, after few muffins and a glass of orange juice. Let’s face it, I am yet to see one that has worked. Yes, I have done it all along the years even attaching additional pages but as much as I tried to followed through with it, it went down the drain faster than I could say my name. So, I bought a new book, turned the page and decided to let the chip fall where it may. I am not driving this carousel, HE is. I am hopping on a boat, go down the river rapids and land wherever. Hope, in a beautiful, calm and serene beach surrounded by birds and butterflies.

2015 will certainly have its stories, then again, it has been my life lately but I digress, it is for another book. I am not the one to know but I am the one to read about them. I look forward to an exciting year, full of jam and jelly, pumpkin and spice, tea and coffee, rice and beans, all ingredients of one good soup I call life. Yes, life.

It is going to have its up and downs, curves and curvatures, darkens and brightness, clouds and sunshine, shapes and lines but in the end, I look forward to just enjoy life, be around my family and friends, and just have fun.

So, as we turn the page to 2015, I wish all of you, family and friends, a Happy New Year full of good health, love, joy, happiness, success and prosperity, and while you are at it, please don’t forget to laugh. It makes your heart grow fonder.

PEACE and until next year!
