I thought I would write a quick Christmas message for you all as I am likely to be absent from here for a couple of days. Here’s wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and I hope you all have a wonderful day, filled with the joys of family and friends… because let’s face it, much like Eastenders stresses every year, Christmas is about being with loved ones, right? 🙂 Whether you’re spending it with those you see all year round or with those you only see now and then, spare a thought for those who cannot be with you and think of them fondly as people around the globe “eat, drink and be merry”.
As I’m sitting here typing away, my television is on in the background and Midnight Mass is currently underway. I’ve got to admit, it really doesn’t feel like Christmas… it feels like it’s come round that much earlier this year. As I noticed the date every time I picked up my phone throughout Christmas eve, I was reminded of the time of year and, automatically, I was somehow compelled once again to think about this past year. 2010 is a year I will look back to and breath a sigh of relief and bang my fist in frustration… but I will mostly look back and feel warm inside about the way the year has been. And yes, I am talking about that warm fuzzy feeling inside which you can feel in your stomach when it’s on the way to giving you butterflies. Why? Well…
2010 has given me amazing opportunities, bringing me that much closer to a life-long dream. 2010 has been a year in which I’ve been lucky enough to be associated with some of the most incredible people and been a part of historical events. The best thing 2010 has given me, without a flicker of a doubt in my mind, is some cherished friendships. I truly have met people this year that have changed my life, made me a better person and taught me invaluable lessons about life. I don’t think I could ever repay these people but I would like to say that it’s because of them that 2010 has “made” me and it is also because of them that I will always strive to do my best. It is their support and encouragement which makes me want to continue my journey in working towards achieving my dream and without them, I wouldn’t have been able to take even the first step.
I would like to say a big thank you to all of these wonderful people who I’ve met this year who continue to make me smile from the inside. I will always try to make you proud and I won’t ever lose the essence of the person I am in the process. You are my strength, my pillars of support, and you are the ones who wish me well no matter what. I thank you from the very bottom of my heart…
I hope everyone can take today to forget the grudges, hug the people that matter, and look ahead to new beginnings. By doing this, you will feel lighter in your heart and open to the changes that come with every new dawn. 🙂
I wish you all a very merry Christmas once again… don’t eat too much! And if you do, remember to make a New Year’s resolution that you really can stick to… especially if starts with D, ends in T and involves a gym membership along with some calorie control! 😉
Lots of love… Be good and if you cant be good, be careful!
