A new beginning…

2011 has been eventful in my life with ups and downs so I’m trying to welcome 2012 and treat it like a clean slate.
First day of 2012 has been wet here in Jakarta, with the rain pouring down since early morning through pretty much all day and the gloominess weighing down. I see it as the rain of blessings. Did you know the Chinese people strongly believe that rain on New Year’s Day will bring prosperity?
Start out fresh…without a long list of resolutions because as much as I love making a list I’m a sucker for New Year’s resolution. Maybe going with a mental list is better than writing it all down to leave evidence of how I didn’t follow through, right?
New year means I’m getting closer to hit 33. Yikes! OK, let’s not go there.
I’m hoping and trying and working damn hard to leave my baggage behind and welcoming the New Year with wide open arms. Carrying these bags for far too long, it is now my time to break free from it all. To fall in love with myself again and living life to the fullest.
Traveling more is definitely on my list. There are so many beautiful places to discover in Indonesia so I’m up for it.
This year I’m starting fresh with plunging myself to give NaBloPoMo a try. Not sure what that is? It’s basically a writing challenge to blog every day for a whole month. I’ve seen this being tweeted around and thought I’d give it a try. So wish me luck!
Happy New Year, guys! Do you usually make New Year Resolutions? What’s your hopes and dreams for the New Year?
