Happy New Year 2016
Another year has passed! If you’re reading this, congratulations, you made the cut!
As I’ve written before, New Year’s is my favorite holiday. It’s a chance to review the changes that have happened in your life, whether intended or not, and the changes that you want to make in the new year.
One year ago today, I was planning my move to Hanoi, Vietnam. It happened and, like everything else in life, was not exactly what I planned. Even so, it was rewarding in so many ways and the year I spent there was one of the most rewarding of my life, full of wonderful people and new experiences.
I am fortunate beyond words.
But, sometimes, as happy as you are, new challenges and new opportunities present themselves. And that is how I find myself in St. John’s, Newfoundland as 2016 begins, but more on that in a later post.
I didn’t go to Hanoi and expect to be in St. John’s one year later. But, when the opportunity presented itself, I came up with the only appropriate answer: why the hell not?!
I’m unbreakable. There is nothing that will stop me.
So, dear reader, I wish you a wonderful 2016. I hope you see the opportunities that arise in the most surprising ways. I hope you embrace fully that you, like me, like all of us, are unbreakable. There is no risk that we can take that will not pay off in some way.
Happy New Year to you, dear reader! To paraphrase Walter Bankston, you’re unbreakable, you’re alive damn it, it’s a miracle! Treat 2016 like you believe it.
