Happy 2013 to you all out there!

As 2012 closes and 2013 begins, I'd like everyone to take a moment to reflect on what has been and what could be in the future. 2012 was a hard year for nearly everyone I know. Many loved ones passed away, many people lost their jobs, many were forced to leave their home in search of a hopeful life elsewhere. 

Many, around the world, have been made homeless. Many have been forced into hunger and the amount of wars, death, pain and suffering seems ceaseless. We all say we want world peace. Many wish it for the new year.

My wish is that we come to know one another and thereby learn how to exchange ideas without wishing to be authoritarian and dictatorial. I hope we can achieve that peace through discovering that we are all the same.

I wish that no language, no race, no religion, culture or belief be an obstacle to our understanding of one another. I also wish that we can put our politics and other mundane issues aside and look at one another as brothers and sisters; made of the same spirit, flesh and blood.

Only then, one person at a time, can we stop wars and achieve world peace. May we all feel a little more love and compassion towards others. May we all be open to new adventures and may we find a clear way in this path of life that we walk and share with others.

We do not journey alone. Everyone on this planet is travelling with us. Whatever we do influences someone somewhere. So, we should be mindful of what we put out. We should never give out what we wouldn't wish to receive upon ourselves.

Most of all, I wish each and every one of you a wonderful 2013. Make your dreams come true this year. Do something that makes you feel alive and don't ever be afraid to be who you are.

Much love, happiness, prosperity and good health to enjoy it all to each and every one of you. Thank you for being in my life. Happy new year!!! xxx
