2012 – The year of the Water Dragon.
Someone said “Life is about trusting our feelings, taking chances, losing and finding happiness, appreciating the memories, and learning from the past.” Well that someone was right.
2012 is now the past. And boy! it was a crazy year. From nearly depleting my life savings in booking a round trip ticket to Chile to accepting a job with UNDP and then turning it down,to making plans to walk the 800 Km from the French Pyrenees to the church at Santiago,Spain,to calling up the Spanish embassy nearly every day for two weeks to request them to allow walking as a mode of transportation, to walking the length and breath of Budapest in the cold, to booking a room with a host who happened to be a girl online and a forty year only American creep in real life, to floating over Cappadocia on a hot air balloon to shamlessly stripping at a Turkish bath, to turning down a proposal only to yes to the same guy a month later; 2012 had it all.
2012 the year of the dragon has taught me a few lessons. I will not bore you with the details. But the jist of it is
” Life is never as you plan it. It is way better!”
Have a fantastic unpredictable 2013 all!
