14 Reading Challenges for 2014


Even though we are three days into the new year, I’m still making up my resolutions and new habits I would like to incorporate into my life in 2014.

Some Words this Wednesday: Happy New Years


I know I’m breaking my own rules with this one, but when I read this new years wish written by Neil Gaiman I knew it would be perfect for today. Happy 2014 everyone!

“It’s a New Year and with it comes a fresh opportunity to shape our world. 
So this is my wish, a wish for me as much as it is a wish for you: in the world to come, let us be brave – let us walk into the dark without fear, and step into the unknown with smiles on our faces, even if we’re faking them. 
And whatever happens to us, whatever we make, whatever we learn, let us take joy in it. We can find joy in the world if it’s joy we’re looking for, we can take joy in the act of creation. 
So that is my wish for you, and for me. Bravery and joy.”
Neil Gaiman
