gelukkig nieuwjaar

I was really happy that the new year was celebrated with much light and love by my side. I found myself rather fortunate to have had a great start to the new year. However, I am the kind of person who treats each day as if it is a celebration. The reason is life itself. Yes you need a reason to celebrate before u can have a celebration. But if you did something each day to be proud of, doesnt matter big or small, then you have a reason to celebrate. I like to do that. Because it makes me happy. Some people think that happiness is overated because people sometimes work too hard to be happy. I know I sometimes do. I try... and
I try a lot. I've been accused of being such a happy bunny as it seems rather surreal that one could be that happy. We all have different theories to be happy and we all have our ways. And we do what's best for us.

I always feel that love makes the heart happy. Love is shared and felt through different ways. The best love is the one that comes from loving ourselves. When we love ourselves enough, then only can we afford to love another and let the other into our lives. Then only can we love selflessly.

paulo coelho wrote about love..

' free and untramme
lled guiding us with its force and driving us on '

love our body , love our soul and love our life...

find out what you love, feed it with love...feed everything we do in life with what it needs so it will constantly live and survive. Be it your career, your family, your relationships, your personal well being, inject a bit of love....

this is what i try... because i learn that with love... it never fails.

this is an interesting article.. which never fails to inspire me.

i wish everyone a happy new year. may it be filled with all that your hearts truly desire....

Oliebollen- a Dutch delicacy that you can find during the New Year period in Holland. It is a ball shaped dough that's covered with sugar icing that's really nice when eate hot on a cold winter's day. Careful not to get icing up your 'neus' as you might just go aaaahhhh-choooo!!! Wash it down with a nice hot latte or a glass of sparkling champagne... sweet luurrrveeeelly yuummy!!

Dear Julia ..

I guess lots of us either took love for granted when it involves our family & love ones and overlook love for all the people that comes into contact with us in our life .. even if it's for a very brief moment!! :) :)

LOVE = Live Off Virtuous Expectations.. because in love, giving is always more important than receiving..

I couldn't agree much with you Ju! Think of everyday as a blessing and try to enjoy every single moment of it, before all of a sudden someone dear to you just leave you.

You'll have a great and blessing year ahead!

I have lost the will to love. but I can never deny the abundance of love my soul carries with me.
