It’s yet another new year and with it comes new opportunities. Life is unpredictable and who knows what this year has in store for us. But the new is what excites us and gets us to strive with life. So learn from the old and boldly face the new.

And here are some of those new things I want to experience, hopefully on another new year day, if I get lucky. Like William Ross said, “Everyone dies, not everyone really lives.”

6) Visit Disneyland
I am also one of those million people who grew up watching Mickey and his friends. I would like to travel to every single one of them and see those imaginary lands which have been my abode for many a lonely nights.

7) Climb a mountain
I have always felt at home with nature. And mountains, for me, are God’s glimpse of heaven. I fell in love them even as I was a kid. I have been to hill stations before but I totally want to properly climb one. I want to stand on top of it and shout my name. To glance at the vast earth below me, from that high point, like I am the ruler of the universe, is something I look forward to.

8) Open up a restaurant
This is one of my life’s goals. I love cooking and want to see the world take pleasure in this beautiful art. I want to die having been a renowned restauranteur.

9) Get a tattoo
A message to the world about me. Something which screams my personality to anyone who sees it. But I am still not sure what inscription would describe me the best.

10) Play in snow
Snow really is a beautiful creation of God. I have had the pleasure of touching it before yet I cannot wait to take it in my hands again. I yearn to play with it, and thoroughly enjoy it this time.

I am sure all of you have new things you want to experience. So go out there and live your dreams! Make this year your best! I heartily wish you all a marvelous new year!

Until next week,
