This year I celebrated both the same day; Imagine, me and the world have the same birthday (and my x boss). My birthday wishes and the New Year wishes did end up being one. It felt very nice to get all the warm wishes for the New Year; I took them as my birthday wishes even if they were not meant to be.
Birthdays for me are similar to new years; I find myself looking back at what I have done the past year and what I am looking to accomplish in the next, you can call it New Year Birthday resolution. As the years go by (and I am not that old) I realize there are many dreams I once had that will never materialize; the ones that did, helped me set my path. Dreams are maps / Carl Sagan (could be a title for a great art installation).
I wish you all a happy new year
A year of dreams and accomplishments
And most importantly I wish you and your family a healthy year.
