Archive for January 1st, 2017


Mulling over what 2017 holds in store.  It’s a  season of hope and new beginnings.  A new leaf in the calendar, a blank page   that needs to be filled with experiences, journeys and  daily happenings in one’s life. There is something nice about a new beginning. You are excited to make it a success somehow, you are excited to learn more about life itself and more excited to traverse an unknown journey with hope and faith in the  Almighty.

Time was when a new year is filled with resolutions so to speak. Now I call them  goals in life, those small  achievable things that make the journey  wonderful – the beauty of everything simple. the abundance of blessings one receives day-to-day, the fulfillment of  a dream.

I vow  to read more books this year, maybe  increase the previous 123 books I managed to finish  on Goodreads’ reading challenge for 2016. Hopefully, I’ll make it to the 150 mark. I actually started reading  an hour after we met the new year last night.  Travelling Light by Tov Jansson  is  a collection of several stories that cover so many subjects. I am just on the first few chapters of the book but I guess  I would enjoy it.  I wish I could blog every day just like before, never mind if they’ll just be a few lines without photos.  The richness of a simple story depends on how it is presented, whether one’s target audience is appreciative enough.  Hopefully this post would be the start.

I love to share with you a lovely quote from  Langston  Hughes’ Dreams. This has inspired me through the years.

Hold onto dreams
For if dreams die
Life is like a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.

More dreams to hold. Welcome 2017 🙂 🙂 🙂
