Every year, during the last two weeks of December, I do my inner-work. I reflect, I set intentions and connect with people I love, who I haven’t connected with during the year.

New Year is a big milestone for me and I prepare for it.

Why? Because I want to live every day a great day and be the best version of myself. I want to grow, learn, expand, love more and help create a positive impact in this world.

Every year during December I review my Dream List. It’s a list of intentions that I had set for life when I was little and I expanded it as I grew. I look at them and check which ones I have achieved this year and where I want to focus during the next one.

For the first time ever, I want to share this list with you. I hope this would inspire you to live a bigger life.

Because there is a secret: almost everything I wrote on this list when I was 15 years old, I have achieved…and more. I have achieved so much more, I feel my life is complete and every month I live now, is a bonus!

This list gives me an amazing perspective how blessed and lucky we all are and our destiny is in our hands. As soon as we feel grateful and think positively, we share and help, we give and love, it’s going to come back as a boomerang.

Life is abundant in energy and resources and everything is possible.
