I welcome 2014. I intended to post this at the beginning of the new year, however I never got around to it. Now, I’ve turned around and it’s already 21 January. I’ve already listed my goals and aspirations in an earlier blog enter so I won’t hash it out again here.
I had a travel list as long as my arm for 2014. I have cut down the number of countries I’m visiting but I’ll stay in each country longer. After spending three months in Panama last year I realized I love slow travel. It gives me better insight into that particular country and allows me to participate in the everyday life.
I’ll be fifty years old in February. I’m elated to have lived this many years so far. There are those who choose not to celebrate because they dread getting older. I think of those who did not live to this age and I rejoice on the anniversary of my birth because I’m always glad to be alive.
It was my intention to have an all out blowout with a rented venue, caterer etc., etc., to celebrate this milestone. I scaled down that plan however. I decided just having a party with family and friends is celebration enough, I don’t have to break the bank to do it. It will still be festive and hopefully everyone in attendance will have a good time.
