2nd Anniversary: 20100102: 2008 is not the only year of achievements!

Since some time back, I am used to design a greeting for the New Year. This time, I had to focus on my Financial and Management Accounting assignment. I have been also thinking of celebrating the 2nd anniversary of my blog "The Love of the 'e' Prefix", probably with a nice design since I am pretty good at that. Being under pressure to finish my assignment and due to other commitments, I decided to postpone that and write this short post.

When I go back to the day in which I created this blog, which was the 31st of December 2007, I just wonder to myself: "that is a bit surprising!!" You know: such a date at the end of a year. I remember that I just did it. I had been thinking about it for some time and I decided to do it and it was the 31st of Dec!!

Today, I created a folder and I gave it a name as I always do: "YearMonthDay" in the format of "yyyymmdd" and guess what I got "20100102". I was like "WOW, that is a cool number!"

"2008 is the not the only year of achievements". I created my blog on the 31st of Dec 2007. What happened in the next day was remarkable and I consider priceless. In addition to developing websites, I used to provide support to the small number of staff at OEC, where I used to work. I was trying to solve a problem in one of the staff's laptop. When a colleague raised a question: "what are your resolutions for 2008?" Then she answered the question stating that her resolution was that 2008 is the year of achievements. That statement caught my attention and I was thinking to myself all day: "she is right, we should have that attitude and believe that we can achieve". As days pass, I realized that it is not 2008 that is the only year of achievements, every year is a year of achievements and so 2010 is another year of achievements.

It has been 2 years with 8 posts, not a big number. I am enjoying writing and aiming at adding a value to your knowledge (and obviously mine) from every topic I post. I probably need to be more focused and work on writing more.

To my friends who commented and gave me their feedback, I would like to express my sincere gratitude. To those who have read a post, I hope you have learnt something new. To my best friend, I do value your support, encouragement and inspirations and you should know that you have contributed a lot to my success.

To all of you, let us dream of a better tomorrow; let us dream of success and prosperity; let us achieve; let us aspire so we can inspire; let us hold each other's hands and walk with confidence and faith and yes… we can… we just need to believe.
