Every year I write down my resolutions and goals, plans and wishes for the upcoming year. One of my favorite things to do before moving on is to find the list from the beginning of last year and see how I did, what came true, what didn’t, and to remember all the meaningful moments. It is crazy how fast the time flies and I truly hope to make every day, week, month as happy and memorable as possible. It’s all about little moments and below I want to share some of mine.

First time I wrote down my to-do list for the year was on New Year 2007; when I found that list in the end of the year I was shocked at how much of it came true and even more shocked at how important it is to clearly articulate what you want to accomplish. For example, I remember that I put something like “Start learning German”, I did start indeed but I didn’t get any good at it because eventually I dropped it. There were a few things similar to that and it definitely teaches me to be more specific and affirmative in my formulations.

For 2014 my list was kind of vague, things I wrote down were mostly general guidelines that I wanted to follow throughout the year plus some more specific goals and plans. Overall, I can say that 2014 has been a great year, many things that I wanted happened, some didn’t, and of course, it was not without surprises.

It’s here! After years of talking about it, my blog is finally here! I cannot tell you how excited I am for this! It is still work in progress and it will definitely take some time for this project to mature (and we all know there is no limit to perfection) but one of the things that I finally realized is that it’s now or never.

I kept procrastinating, finding a million excuses to why it’s not ready yet but the truth is there is no such thing as perfect time. A part of me still protests as I type this but it is what it is. How many times have you wanted to do something but doubts, fear or laziness would tell you it’s not the time, let’s wait till next Monday and then suddenly it’s next Wednesday and nothing have changed? Well, it happened way too many times to me and I am ready to take the next step.
