2009 wasn’t the best of years for many people and many reasons. There were sad times and happy times, tough times and easy times. People had problems with health and communications; there were those that passed away too. Businesses went bust and the economy was in upheaval. Many lives were turned upside down but we still all landed on our feet.
It is years like these that provide growth and help the better times really stand out and shine even more. What did you learn this year? What would you do differently next time? Where will you go from here? What are your plans for the future?
Be grateful if you are reading this, saw the year to the end and still have a smile on your face.
Why smile? Because you still have all the time in the world to put things right and still achieve your dreams.
Wishing you all the best for 2010 and beyond….
“My heart is afraid that it will have to suffer,” the boy confides to the alchemist one night as they look up at a moonless night.
“Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself,” the alchemist replies. “And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity.”
It is once you reach your goal that all the trials and the journey make sense. When you want something, the universe will conspire in helping you to achieve it.
From the book The Alchemist: A Fable About Following Your Dream by Paulo Coelho
