It’s that time of the year when we wait for a new year, a new start..

It’s weird how people think that the new year will mean a better life in general. A new year does not mean a new start. Nothing changes when the first of January comes.

Everything is the same. The people around you are the same, your current life is basically unchanged, you still have the same issues. Nothing magical happens on New Years Eve.

I sound pretty negative, don’t I?

Truthfully, 2012 has been a challenging year. Lots of changes, actually there have been so many changes that I really cannot keep track of them all. One thing I know for sure, things come and things go. So 2012 came and with it so did change, now 2012 is ending 2013 is coming.

I am actually happy with myself. I completed a lot of things that were on my list, some more important than others and in general it has been OK.

For 2013 I would like to maintain the same course of action.

So without any other comments about the past year Happy New Year and here is my Resolutions:
