Dear 2017,

Here comes the time of the year where it is tradition to stop, hop off the hamster wheel and look back at the past 12 months.

As a custom, my year has, one more time, been fulfilled with newness, moves, changes : 3 jobs, 4 houses, 2 cities! 

However, my main focus remains to dedicate as much energy and time as I can to Travel, Sport & Nature.

2017 was the year of rooster in Chinese zodiac, which is my sign. The predictions for us, baby roosters, implied that hard work, perseverance and resilience would lead to achievement and projects accomplishement. To my surprise, it actually really happened! Indeed, after struggling, dedicating so much time, energy, effort, motivation, I eventually managed to move back to Los Angeles, my city, my place, my home. Moreover, I was offered an amazing professional opportunity including great work conditions, challenging responsabilities and satisfying compensations. So, here I am, I am all set!

But ... yes, there's always a "But" ... All good things must come to an end ... that's what we say, right? So, here it is, my American Dream most probably will be ending anytime soon ...

Then, what? Predictions for 2018 were all about "Changes". Hum, interesting? Changing jobs, houses, cities, countries, as I've done for the past 14 years? Well, it wouldn't then be considered as "change" as it has actually been my "usual" lifestyle and operating mode! So, "Changes" in my priorities? Will I tend to plan on settling down, engaging into a relationship, building a family? Would the "Changes" be about career? Would I finally get the courage to make my "Real" projects happen? Is it about time for me to allocate my time, energy, experience, skills, competences to "real" causes? Am I finally ready to get involved into real meaningful and impactufl projects towards society? Am I supposed to take "Real" actions in order to contribute to the developement of a community?

Are those projects utopic? Am I completely overstimating my capabilities? Maybe ... Maybe not ...

So many questions ... so few answers ... Life will tell ... I guess ...
