The best is yet to come!



2013 was good. It was hard, but good. And fast. Oh so very fast. Is it just me or the older I get the faster time goes? I've been thinking a lot about that. How I'm getting older (not old yet, just older). How I want my life to be better lived and enjoyed the older I am. How the things I want and the things I'm willing to sacrifice for them have changed too. I'm not the naive girl I used to be. I'm still pretty innocent for many things, but I also more determined and wiser.  I want this 2014 to be the best year of my life. And I'm going to wish the same for 2015. And 2016. And 2017 (you get the idea). 

I want to work smarter, not harder. I want a healthier life. I want more quality time with my family and friends. I want more of life. And I think one of the keys to achieve that is to be more mindful. To be more present. I won't have more time. No extra hours during the day. No extra days during the year. I will have the same time as I had last year, and I want to make the best out of what I've got. 

Many things are going to change for me and my family during this year (or not! we never know!). Many plans have been laid out. We just have to be patient and wait. If they come they will be very challenging, but welcome. If they don't, well... we'll have to make the best out of what we have.

I wish this year it's your best year yet. Happy 2014!
