Thinking About the New Year

Updated on January 1, 2015

The new year just began. The old is past. The new is future.

Time for me to think a bit. To reflect the past year. And think about my wishes, aims and goals for the 2015.

But also to take the time and just to be thankful for everything. 2014 had been difficult at some moments, but after all it really was a great year with much of happy and good moments. I like to call them quality time moments.

The best moments I had with my girlfriend. She gives me much joy and happiness. I am really happy that she is by my side. Thank you for all! I love you!

I am sure that 2015 will be great again. I will start a new job just in February on which I will learn much new things for sure. Really looking forward to take this opportunity for me.

The photo you see I shoot when I was walking around in the old quarter Las Peñas in Guayaquil, Ecuador last November. I think it fits perfect in the content about reflect on the past and thinking about the future.

Google Year in Search 2014

What we search says much about us. This is what in 2014 we searched the most. What will 2015 bring?

Will be 2015 a good year for you?

      I think it is better to make aims then resolutions. Every day can be the best day of your life, you are the one who can make that. Just you. You are very welcome, I am looking forward on your future hubs. All the best for 2015 for you too.

      Every year people make different resolutions and hope for a better year. I know that each year can be the best if I made that happen for me. Interesting thoughts from you. Thank you for following me. All my best to you for 2015.
