My new year wishes

As the year 2009 comes to an end, I am reflecting how it has changed me as a person. As I look towards 2010 I can say that I am more aware of life and that we do not have tomorrow packaged.
I am more aware of how difficult it is to change one's perception about people and things. Before the information highway was opened, we all lived in our own small worlds. Now that world has become connected and I realize that we are more alike than we are different. Many of us face the same challenges in our day to day existence, many of us share the same hopes and dreams.
Often I wonder if I can make a difference, by doing instead of talking, by giving instead of thinking. At times, I can be described the world's greatest procrastinator and it is indeed the thief of time. Time passes very quickly and before we know it is too late. So my resolution for 2010 is to just do it!

My wish for the world....... may there be some peaceful resolution to the conflicts that seem to be engulfing nations. May we all see each other as family that spans the globe ignoring race, creed and station in life. May we throw out all prejudices and start with a blank page. Who knows what tomorrow will bring?........Just do it!

Wishing a happy and healthy 2010 to all !


  1. Very wise wish, Helen. I hope you will be able to fulfill it. Happy New Year.

  2. I am thankful to have 'met' you this year. I wish for a very happy 2010.

  3. Lovely wishes. A very Happy New Year to you and yours x

  4. Here, here! I hope the new year is filled with all your dreams come true. We are all indeed connected. Happy new year!

  5. Helen, I am glad to have known you. I look forward to another year of having fun together, and yes! on a blank page to start Chapter 2010 in our Book of Life. Happy New Year 2010 and may all your wishes come true!

  6. Dearest Helen,
    You make me smile. I can hear you speaking as you write with that wonderful accent you have. 'Tis true enough we must make the most out of the moments we are given and to actually 'do' the good deeds we think about rather than just think them is something to strive for. I'm with you... Happy New Year, dear friend. So glad we met this year. I'm holding you in my heart until we meet again.
    Hugs** Meems
