“Why do I like Christmas? Especially this one? Yes, I'm sad, it's the second Christmas that I'm far from home, without the company of my family, without the people who really love me give me a hug; but knowing this, being here, away from all that ambition is what makes me stronger every day, not just on Christmas day, every day. Every day I miss thousands of things I can't reach, but I'm sure I'll make it; the world takes many turns, and when you wish something with all your soul surely get to you at some point. Being away from home you become more sensitive, more love every detail of your life, you value every person that comes to her and I'm sure the guards as a treasure, why does everything right, every little detail that makes you smile is worth more than anything in the world.


Every second that I've lived far from the people I love most was worth every tear, every frustration. So cry, these tears come loaded with thousands of amazing experiences that I'll never forget and I'm sure they'll come millions of others, who will always be accompanied by one of those people that fill me away from the soul. To every person who knows me, every person who is with me from afar, or from very close i wish with all my heart your happiness, millions of good energies, so much love, many hugs (all you need), and my most sincere wishes forward spiritually. To every friend, acquaintance or family member that is in my life, thank you!! Each one fills my soul in a way that is unexplainable. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, happy new year to everyone. Laughter, love and peace.


It is the closure of the year and may be the perfect opportunity to say yes to the life we want to live, to be thankful for all the opportunities, blessings, affections, learning that we have received and especially for saying no to what we must not continue. Everything that I've lived this year was new to me, I took to meet challenges that I didn't think I could do, but I did it, full of fears, defeating them of course! I'm full of thanks mainly to God for all the blessings that he gave me and tbn with the people who are now walking with me, I'm sure you are the right ones, thank you for your love, it's totally reciprocal.


Everyone, I wish that the year incoming we can see the magic of life at every moment, that our heart is open to the beautiful things, we can discern and act in a fair, that our actions, words and thoughts are filled with love and light and we have many opportunities to give and receive love. A happy and prosperous year. You were the most incredible thing that happened to me last year, infinite thanks for everything. I hope to keep your friendship for the rest of my life.”
