I suddenly remember telling this to my friend at the beginning of December : I don't want to be alone on Christmas Eve. I really really wanted to feel the festivity, enjoy the Christmas decorations, and watch as fireworks went off on Christmas Eve. I also hoped that I would be able to spend time with people I love while ushering in the New Year. I didn't want to go out to a crowded place for a countdown, but just to be able to feel JOY.
Only now I remember making this little statement and having that hope in my heart. Feel really happy to think back to Christmas and New Year's Eve, both spent with people close to my heart and were filled with happiness and gratefulness. Not alone. Not being overly sentimental but looking forward and enjoying every moment shared with the ones I love.
