2011 review

Once I told myself, in each year, besides working, I will learn a new thing, visit a new place, or do something good I never did before.

It’s the time to review it. In 2011:

  • Read 11 non-academic books;
  • Visited 3 new places in the UK;
  • Did 5 things I never did before.

I love Collin McCarty’s poems. This one is for my 2012:

Always Do Your Best, and Your Dreams Will Come True
 
It’s not always easy to know 
which path to follow,
which decision to make,
or what to do.
 
Life is a series of new horizons,
new hopes, new days, and changes 
that come to you.
And we all need some help with these things
from time to time.
 
Remember these things: Dream it. Do it.
And discover how special you are.
Be positive, for your attitude 
will affect the outcome of many things.
Ask for help when you need it;
seek the wisdom the world holds 
and hold on to it.
Make some progress every single day.
Begin. Relieve. And become.
 
Give yourself all the credit you’re due;
don’t short change your qualities, your abilities,
or any of the things that are so unique about you.
Remember how precious life can be.
Imagine. Invest the time it takes 
to reach out for your dreams;
it will bring you happiness 
that no money on earth can buy.
Don’t be afraid; no mountain is too big to climb 
if you do it at your own pace.
 
What’s the best thing to do? 
That’s simple: Do Your Best.
And everything else will fall into place.
