Happy New Year!

“I am not afraid of tomorrow, for I have seen yesterday and I love today.” William Allen White

I believe it is only natural to reflect on the year that's passed just as a brand new one is about to begin... I've been thinking of all kinds of creative, potentially innovative ways to present the highlights of mine, but in the end I thought "Why bother spending so much time on the past when what I really should be doing is looking into the future?".

Having that said, I decided on a kind of compromise and thought I'd list the highlights of 2009 but also the things I hope to do 2010.
Here goes ;))

2009 Going home again after 8 months! ...all I can say is WOW!
2010 2 things.... The first one I'm hoping for is the one I get when friends/family come to visit. The second one I'm hoping for is a sense of feeling calm (which is unfortunately quite unusual for me)!

2009 Italy for sure!!! Como, Venice, Tuscany & Cinque terre was truly AMAZING!
2010 Planning to go to a tropical island (yet to be decided which one...and shared ;)) with one of my best friends....bliss!

2009 Oohh....this is tricky, but I think I'll choose my latest Betsey Johnson dress!
2010 Hoping to find the perfect knee-high boots for next fall/ this was mission impossible this year!

2009 Joshua Radin!!
2010 My favourite author and one of my greatest sources of inspiration....will keep you posted!

Professional achievement
2009 Hmm.....well I guess getting "accidentally" promoted in November can count??
2010 Mainly aiming to stay afloat, but I guess passing the APICS exams could be a goal ;)

2009 Ingrid Michaelson entered my musical world and all I can say is WOW!
2010 Really really looking forward to hearing Regina Spektors newest!!

2009 Well.... I guess that would be this blog!
2010 I am really hoping to start writing a book, or at least outlining the idea I have ;))

2009 Slumdog Millionaire ties with Grave of the fireflies!
2010 Tim Burtons "Alice in Wonderland" and of course "Harry Potter and the deathly hallows Part 1"!! Exciting movie year ahead!


2009 Postponing the import of my car because of silly indecisiveness....have a very unpleasant bill coming my way =((
2010 I could say NONE, but who would believe me?? Let's not forecast this!

2009 To make 2009 a better year than 2008...succesful?? Uhmm yes!
2010 Take better care of myself!! (less stress and not worry too much)

That's all for now but want to leave you with this brilliant quote:

“When it comes to the future, there are three kinds of people: those who let it happen, those who make it happen, and those who wonder what happened.”
John M. Richardson, Jr.

Now which one would you like to be??

Thank you so much for all your support during 2009! Hope to see you here also during 2010 ;)
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! May all your wishes and hopes come true....
