I met this lady in Bagan, Myanmar, where she wanted to sell some clothes to me and a friend of mine. While we were having fun bargaining, I captured her beautiful and whole heartedly laughter during the talk. When I think of Myanmar, I think – despite of its beautiful landscape and pagodas – mainly of its people. Although it is a very poor country, Burmese are very joyful and would start most situations with a smile. They enjoy their newly gained freedom and are really loving and living life with a big curiosity for new things and education.
Thinking about 2014 New Year’s resolutions, I felt above all the “being a better person”, “quit bad habits” and “pushing yourself to new limits” I should simply consider to laugh more often, more intense and to worry less.
I wish all of you a wonderful start into 2014 hoping, you use more situation to have a great laughter and to have your friends around you to share these moments. Also – for the not-at-all-fun-times – I hope you surround yourself with people who cheer you up again, giving you back the ability to see the good and fun things in life.
I want to thank everyone supporting me during this year and especially those of you somewhere out there in this big world, keeping up my motivation to write this blog.
