In The Mood For

{wishing you all, my beloved readers, the most glorious 2013!
  may all your dreams come true!!!}

This was undoubtedly a difficult year personally, but I've survived it strengthened, refreshed, more adult and hopeful. As always, a reflective personal balance is inevitable  with some regrets, but without despair, for what matters most is what you can do from now on and not to get hooked to what has been left behind. After all, this is called life and not fairy tale! I'm thankful for all the milestones that I've accomplished and I'm eager for those I've set to achieve next year. Thank you to all of you who have lovingly visited me  every day this year of 2012, in silence or manifesting yourselves, as it is for you that I write, because in fact, if I wanted to do it for myself, I would have written a diary instead! ;) For all of you a big hug, and for some in particularly that hug! See you back in 2013!I'm in the mood for...

Este foi sem dúvida um ano difícil em termos pessoais, mas saí dele fortalecida, revigorada, mais adulta e esperançosa. Como sempre, é inevitável um balanço reflexivo pessoal, com alguns arrependimentos, mas sem desesperos, pois interessa o que ainda se pode fazer e não ficar agarrado ao que já lá vai.  Afinal, a isto, chama-se vida e não conto de fadas! Estou grata por todos os marcos alcançados e  ansiosa por aqueles que eu defini para o próximo ano. Obrigada a todos vocês que carinhosamente me visitaram dia após dia neste ano de 2012, em silêncio ou manifestando-se, já que é para vós que escrevo, pois na verdade, se eu quisesse fazê-lo só para mim, tinha escrito um diário!;)Para todos um grande abraço e, para alguns em particular, aquele abraço!Vemo-nos de volta em 2013! Apetece-me...
