2015 is here! Welcome!

Hello everyone, now that 2014 is behind us, hope everyone had a pleasant, fun and great night when ringing in 2015. Here are to new beginnings this year. I can’t believe it is the second day already. Time is already flying by. before you know it, we will be putting up our Christmas/Holiday decorations once again. I remember the days when I always wanted to go out for new years and celebrate outdoors or at a banquet hall full of people, but nowadays, I just want to spend a quiet, fun and relaxing time at home with my loved ones with good food, snacks, a few drinks, and unwinding during the holidays is all that is important. I know its fun to get dressed up and to go to parties and everything, but I just don’t feel it anymore. I’d rather be at home all cozy and warm and just relaxing.

I don’t know if you feel the same way as well. To me, new years is just another day with another year added. We should be grateful for the days we have, for the years we are on the planet, and we should be grateful for all the blessings and everything we have. That is the most important thing that people really should focus on. Some people are so into vanity, materialism, and all that stuff, however the true meaning of the holidays and as well as everyday is to count our blessings and be thankful. There are so many unfortunate things happening in our world today, and we should always look at the bigger picture as things can be worse.

Always think positive, look at life in an optimistic way, be happy, live your life. Health, happiness, and positivity is the most important things in life. everything else is secondary. As 2015 is now here, I wish everyone a blessed year ahead and beyond. Lets create more memories, good times, motivate each other, encourage each other, have each others back, and share our stories with one another.

Many blessings and good times to everyone. Best wishes to all!

Cheers to 2015!

The Last Blog of 2014 – The Year Flew By

Hello everyone, this is going to be my last blog of 2014. I cannot believe how quickly the year flew by. It felt just like yesterday we were celebrating the beginning of 2014 and now, here we are again ready to welcome a new year which is about 24 hours from now. There is so much I want to accomplish and achieve in 2015, and I have created a personal bucket list of goals to attain and so much more. In the blogs coming, everyone will eventually find out what they are. For now, it is something personal to me until I post my journey and stories of it all in the coming 12 months of 2015. So keep checking back to see it all unfold.

I know a lot of people are setting up and getting ready to ring in the new year and some are already celebrated 2015 in the world already, so I am going to keep this short and wishing everyone a safe, happy, healthy, positive, optimistic and great year ahead, and may it be everything you wish for it to be. Keep smiling, keep shining, keep your head up high and always be who you are, and know that whatever you do, and want to do, when you put your mind to it, you can do anything. Everything and Anything is possible in life. You just need to work hard at it and never give up.

Thank you to my readers, fans, family, friends, and all my supporters.

I am excited for another year filled with blogging, writing, and pursuing my dreams in social media, writing and so much more.

Here is to New Beginnings.

It is Almost Time Again For Christmas Movies on TV

I know you are probably thinking, why I am bringing up Christmas 2 months before and it is early to even think about it, but with the time going by so quickly, it will be here before you know it, However It is that time again where Halloween is almost here, and the day after Halloween, is when all the Christmas Commercials, and Movies that are shown on Television right until New Years. 2014 has just zoomed on by. it was just like yesterday we were celebrating the New Year and Christmas, and now it is almost here again. Christmas movies have been a tradition for me annually.

There are many Christmas movies out there, however some just stand out more than others, and I really enjoy Watching Home Alone, Home Alone 2: Lost In New York, Griswold’s National Lampoons Christmas Vacation, Four Christmas’s, Miracle on 34th St, Santa Clause, Santa Clause 2, Jingle All the way, The Muppet Christmas Carol, and Jack Frost.

The most I watch though is Home Alone, Home Alone 2: Lost In New York, and National Lampoons Christmas Vacation.

I love watching these movies, I make myself a hot beverage, cover up with a warm blanket in the cold winter months, and I just enjoy myself. No matter how many times I watch them, it feels like I am watching them for the first time. I just do not like the commercials that interrupt the movie.

Some movies you can watch over and over again, but some movies once is more than enough, however these classic movies will never go out of style and will certainly never get old. I cannot wait until they appear on television once again and where I can continue my tradition as always. I sometimes watch it by myself, with family and friends as well. I am quite excited for it all. I have fun either way.

The only thing I do not like is the Cold Winter months and the snow, but everything else is great. :) Do you watch Christmas movies? Do you have traditions that you follow or at least try to follow annually? Would love to hear from you. :) Well, have a great time and fabulous upcoming Holiday Season.


Feeling A Little Under The Weather – The Joys of What Winter Brings

This weekend, I have been feeling a little under the weather. It’s been over 2 and a half years I haven’t got sick with sore throat, sniffles, sneezing and everything to do with a cold. I guess its back with a vengeance. I am feeling so awful. I need some good honey lemon tea, lots of fluids, and Buckley’s that will help me and my cold. I can’t believe I got sick like this before New Years Eve. Well, this year I am staying home anyway, but it is taking a toll on me. for 2 and a half years not being sick. I am going crazy. What are some cures for a cold to go away quickly? The joys of winter huh? I don’t know how some people like this crazy. It is crazy. I mean I bundle up, Wash my hands a lot per day, and make sure that I protect myself, but I guess its come to a point where it needs to fight me back. This cold is so brutal. It is definitely in the air somewhere. I just want this winter to be over with. I am already so tired of it. I need to relax today and take it easy and get better quick. I cannot be sick. I have deadlines to meet and can hardly concentrate, but I think its a way for my body to tell me to get some rest and just take care of myself. I know the common cold can strike at anytime, but mostly winter and notice how on tv during winter they have cold medicine commercials? Hardly in the summertime. Anyway, I am going to keep this short today and focus on getting better so that I can function for later. Have a great happy new year everyone and enjoy your festivities for ringing in 2013. All the best to everyone!

New Years Eve & Last Post of 2011!

So we have come to the last day of 2011. I must say this year went by super quickly for me. I guess from traveling so much to Montreal 32 times just this year, Going to Ottawa twice, Visiting Niagara Falls USA and CANADA, being so busy with writing, day to day life, I just didn’t realize how quick it truly went. This year I learned so much about life, learning from fellow bloggers, readers, commenters on my blog, hearing different perspectives on issues in life, so on and so forth. I thank everyone for giving me all the love, support, courage and 2011 was a year that I finally found my passion and that is to write and blog which hopefully someday with my words that come from my heart will change the world and people can be more kinder to one another, to respect one another and start 2012 with greatness instead of bad that we always hear on the news. So much has happened this year and I just cannot even begin to explain it all, but all in all, I have had a pretty great year and you know how they say, things happen for a reason.

Some friends have come and gone and some of them have stayed and I know who my true friends are. I’ve learned a valuable lesson this year to know who is fake and who is not, and also learning about so many things about life. There is so much I need to be thankful for, getting through another year, etc… What have you learned in 2011? What were some of your highlights this year? What were some of the memorable moments that you went through?

Unfortunately there were some people who past away this year and didnt live past another year, I’d like to send out my condolences and sympathies to those who have lost loved ones in their lives.

Finally, I’d like to end off 2011 with saying thank you to my readers of my blog, followers, supporters, to my family, friends, you all hold a special place in my heart and I will continue to write in 2012. Have a great happy new year 2012, all the best, May all your dreams and wishes come true and hopefully 2012 will be a beautiful year for all.

See you all next year in 2012!
