Happy New Year coffee mates! It seems like 2011 has been a good time for us. May the blessings flow continuously until next year and the years to come! It was quite a nice thought to be part of the online sharing where people can just drop by to read what we all have in mind. After all, this is what blogging all about. From time to time as we blog hop, we do not just read between the lines but read straight from the hearts of the writers.
As usual and just like other years that pass, 2011 was not even close to perfection yet surpassing obstacles and overcoming challenges matter and the best part of all is that none of the downfalls can make us give up your zest for life. And based on as how we progressed for the past years, we know how stable we will be for the coming years. Over a cup of coffee, it is nice to ponder how far we have gone when it comes to progress and development. All the more that you realized that things get better knowing that people and situations have tried to damage us too hard enough for the past years yet we remain in the act of moving forward no matter what happened and whatever it took. Nothing beats our appreciation about life. This keeps us going. We are too grateful of the gift of life. With people stressing us out, with people trying to make our life miserable, we grow better knowing that they are the ones to carry what they have been doing and not us.
Life is beautiful and over a cup of coffee, we enjoy the breeze of the occasion, we can stare at wall paintings, we talk to friends, we show how much we care to our family, and more than anything else over a cup of coffee, we realize how important it is to take care of ourselves. Let this realization be carried on to the next year where the love of oneself prevails. Taking care of oneself means more growth and progress for us which may entail sharing the blessing we will receive along the way to others. Once again, Happy New Year. Let us welcome 2012 with a blast of abundance!
