I'm back from spending New Year at Portugal, at the countryside near the Spanish border.
I wish I could really wish you a happy new year, but my thoughts are with the people that suffered the Tsunami. It has been a really sad year or just another sad year for the world?
My state of mind is very similar to the one I had after the 11-M, the start of the Irak War, and 11-S. I feel that we have the responsability to live our lives making the most of it. Not complaining about silly things, and not arguing about stupid facts.
I was working on my new year resolution list (things like doing more exercise, lossing weight...), but I just burnt the list. I'll try to incorporate those changes in my life but will not focus on not having done them. I'll try to make the best of every moment instead of thinking what could it be.
Although most of us don't have the job we like, the house we dream of, and many of us are dealing with sickness an other major problems I think that we still have lots of good things happening around and we still can hope of changing those things we don't like and even making a better world.
I like to focus on small things that make my life better, the beauty of a cloud, the flower that grows amidst the paving of a street, the unknown person that smiles you in the street. The discover of a new artist that inspires yourself. Life is full of beauty, my yarns and my stash make me smile.
One of the things that really make my life better is communicating to people via my/their blogs. For the bloglife updating is very important. So I'll try to update daily.
Ok this is a bunch of NYResolutions popping. But not in the way I have intended before. Sorry for this preacher post. If you can please consider making a donation to the Tsunami Relief efforts. Oxfam International is my choice, but there are many others agencies helping.
