New Year thoughts: Good Madness

It's that special time of the year 
when we all feel a little hyped about new beginnings 
and setting our new year resolutions.

Imagine all the new opportunities the new year holds.
I hope you are looking forward to the many new encounters the new year shall bring.

Just want to share this intriguing thoughts from Neil Gaiman
My friend, Sam told me about Neil Gaiman's inspiring work.

So i just want to quote him,

"May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art -- write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself." (taken from his recent blogpost)

i like the phrase 'good madness'.
He wrote the above about a decade ago.

You have to continue to read what he shared for this new year here
You just have to.
It struck me.

So this new year, I sincerely hope that you always have some inspirations and actually do what you are really passionate about. 

Let's hope that we all be a little braver, a little more hardworking and kinder than we were. =)

Thanks for the inspiring blog entry. Indeed, aside from being more creative and hardworking, we really need to be kinder. The world could use more kindness everyday.
