Happy New Year World!
A New Year for me is a chance to make my life better for the next 365 days or 52 weeks. It offers fresh hopes to pursue my dreams and goals. This is why at the end of the year, I opted to be quiet and made a personal review of what “has been” in 2016.
2016 was a good year for me.
I had moments of struggles as a single mother sending my precious son to college but managed to pass them all. Thanks to special angels in my life-my parents and sisters who supported my efforts to continue making this priority-goal going well as well as my lady bosses Nizza and Judith who gave me opportunity to earn while pursuing my writing passion. Of course, everything comes from the GOD who showered me with great personal favors. My prayers were all answered – according to HIS will. HE even gave me bonus – a special “amore” somewhere in the soil of Italy.
I also started blogging. I was hesitant before because I might reveal my personal feelings here which I did in my personal journals (have lots of them!) but then I learned to detach a little while revealing more of my personal journeys without too much drama hahaha! Now, I am enjoying it- the composition part, the interaction and exchange of comments with other bloggers and yes, the learning that I got from all the seasoned writers/bloggers out there.
There were opportunities to go back to media mainstream but I guess, last year was not the perfect timing to go back to radio broadcast or start a special “magazine” project with friends. I also believe that when it is meant to happen- it flows naturally and smoothly.
So, 2017 is a year of blossoming for me. A year of shedding off pounds (LOL), fears, doubts and negativity. I did not make resolutions for this year. I am not good in keeping them anyway. I am planning my 52 weeks personal-professional journey. I am planning my 365 days of “everything”. I have lots of “special” projects in my hands which I started in 2016. I know there will be lots of “new” things and situations that will come this 2017. I know at this point of my life-I can say positively say “I Am Ready!”
