A New Year’s Wish

Fireworks have been lit and champagne has been poured. A new year has begun full of promise and hope. I would like to take this opportunity to wish you, my readers, a year of fulfilled hopes and dreams. I wish you many blog posts and comments, and many hours of enjoyment writing or taking beautiful pictures for people all over the world to admire. I wish you too as much happiness as you can hope for, and a healthy body with which to enjoy it. May the year 2014 be even better than the year we laid to rest yesterday.

Happy New Year 2014 SMS Messages and Greetings_3

I have celebrated too many New Year’s days to even think of making resolutions. Resolutions tend to be forgotten in the hurly-burly of everyday; they are pushed to the back of one’s mind come February. Instead I like to think of continuing to reach my goals and the work I am doing everyday to achieve them. I do tend to think back on the past year and celebrate the milestones that I have achieved. This reflection helps me know that I have achieved something with my life in the past year.

Do you make New Year Resolutions?

  1. I don’t do the resolution thingy as well Colline. No expectations is my rule. Taking it from moment to moment. Great post hon and wishing you and your family a wonderful and blessed 2014. πŸ˜€ *big hugs*


    1. I agree Sonel – in that way there are no disappointments – only lovely surprises.
      I wish you and your loved ones the best year possible in sunny South Africa πŸ™‚


  2. All the best for the New Year, Colline! I agree with you on resolutions, but last year I think there was a challenge or something, so I made a resolution – and managed to fulfill it. But, that was an exception – no resolution this time.


  3. I don’t make resolutions either, Colline. I’ve goals I work toward and they’ve nothing to do with January 1st. That day is for celebrating. πŸ™‚
    I wish you and your family a most wonderful New Year!


  4. Dear Colline, your words have touched me. We have something in common – no New Year’s resolutions ;). My best wishes to you and your family. With hugs, P.


  5. Happy New Year, Colline! πŸ™‚ I used to resolve not to make resolutions, but this year I need a good challenge (which, I think, is the same as making resolutions).


      1. To reestablish a morning routine that I practiced (for 100 days) last year and then let fade away. Yoga, meditation, writing, exercising, and getting outside. It actually combines most of the year-long challenges I’ve done over the past few years. I’m looking forward to getting back on a healthier track. πŸ™‚


        1. Sounds like a routine that would be very good for your physical and spiritual health. I wish you all the best with it. Hopefully we will see updates on your blog πŸ™‚


  6. I, too, contemplate the previous year, and look towards the next with some goals in mind. Since it takes me a while (if at all) to achieve them, I don’t see them as much as resolutions; more like guideposts, maps, or an inner GPS.
    Wishing you and your family all the best and an exceptionally enjoyable 2014.


  7. Many new years have passed me already and they are coming and going faster and faster. I am already behind and two days into the new year with wishing you and your lovely family all the best for 2014. You have an awesome blog and way of telling your stories. May you go from strength to strength this year


    1. Thank you so much Scrapydo. I am always happy to learn that I have made a connection with someone.
      And one day I am hoping to quilt as beautifully as you do. πŸ™‚


  8. happy New Year, Colline! i love small resolutions and found a perfect three word resolution challenge over at Trifecta. perfect. cheers to 2014!! πŸ˜›


  9. Happy New Year to you too, my dear Colline!

    I have one resolution inspired by words from the Dalai Lama… finding true spiritual happiness is to not become too attached to material possessions. I have one possession I am far to attached to. My house. I must detach and learn to find solace in something that grounds me far less – myself! Within this detachment, I may find what I am looking for. Inner peace.

    As we begin a new year, I wish for peace and happiness to you and all your readers, Colline


    1. I can understand your attachment to your house as you worked so hard to get it. And it is also a place where you have come to enjoy tranquility. I hope that you are able to achieve your goal and in doing so find some inner peace.


  10. Wishing you a great New year Colline
    May it be full of Love, Happiness and Prosperity.
    At my age Colline, the only New years resolution I make
    is to make it to the next New year, so far I have kept to my resolution.

  11. Happy New year my beautiful blogger friend, dear Colline. Thank you, I can’t think anything right now, I have just sat at my desk today, really this time, the influenza knocked me down badly…. am I in the new year… πŸ™‚ I will be fine and I will catch everything again. Thank you so much, love, nia


    1. I am glad to learn you are recovering Nia. It is a scary thing when one is so sick that one cannot get put of bed. I hope you get stronger every day and that you will soon be walking about snapping your photos.
