I took an impromptu break from blogging and took the time to recharge myself and enjoy the year end by relaxing, going out with friends, family and visiting the beach.

Now that I feel more refreshed after a busy year, I’m ready to tackle another big year ahead.
To me, the New Year is an opportunity to reflect and renew. It may just be another day on the calendar but it acts as a mental circuit breaker for me to focus and if required recalibrate my life goals. I don’t really make any new year’s resolutions (because I can’t keep them having failed epically on my attempt to head to bed earlier this year and sleep before midnight on the very first day) – Instead I use this time to set targets I want to achieve for the new year. These, in no particular order, include:
- Plan and book that 6-week European holiday for the 2nd half of the year.
- Taking more risks at work to pursue my dream role in Strategy.
- Stepping up on my photography passion – which would start with an upcoming purchase of a new DSLR camera!
- Be a more consistent (which doesn't necessarily equate to more frequent) blogger with more quality content for my readers. So, if you have any suggestions or requests, I'm here to serve!
And finally, I want to wish you all a amazing new year; one filled with love and joy where you are able to reach your fullest potential each and every day. Happy 2012!
