I have been very absent lately – carpal tunnel is preventing me from being on my computer for too long. Awaiting results in the early new year to find out next steps to be taken. We may have free health care – but it’s not a quick process for us.
Despite the issues of that, and health issues with both parents, 2018 has been a good year for me. I saw many accomplishments of mine, and of my children, followed through and succeeded. I have had an article published in a Canadian magazine (Our Canada), did some public speaking, dabbled in art, and in general have had a very positive year. I am heading to Europe in January for a vacation, and then later in the year Africa is calling my name. I am excited for what looms in the future for me.
I hope to be back blogging soon on a more regular basis. I want to wish everyone a happy holiday season and a very Happy New Year! Here’s to the future and to 2019!
2018 is here, and I enjoyed it by napping, waking up to see the ball drop in Times Square, and then headed to bed right away! I am not much of a party person so it was okay to have a quiet New Year’s Eve. I enjoyed it with my family, something I haven’t done in a long time.
But now 2018 is here. I had such an eventful 2017 that I am not really sure how I will top it, but I will most definitely be having an amazing year. My positive attitude will keep flowing right through this new year and will make this an amazing year.
I was lucky enough to see China, Chile and then back to Canada last year, and I have every intention to travel somewhere this year for a holiday – Canada will be my home base now for a few years but that doesn’t mean I will just be staying here and working. I am ready to explore a new country even if it is just for a week or two. Perhaps I will even pick a country that doesn’t start with “C”!
One of my goals (NOT resolutions – a goal is much more attainable I believe) is to get an article or two published, while continuing to work on my book. My goal is to improve my writing. I have other goals too, but this is my big one for the year. I know I can do it – I just need to make the time to write more.
What goals have you made? Or do you make resolutions? Do you make the same one every year? And do you keep it?
A new year, a new start – there is no time like the present to get to it!!
For now though, I am reminiscing about 2017 – here are a few of my favourite moments from this past year.
