Happy Holidays!

December 16, 2011

– By Luis Miguel Messianu | President & Chief Creative Officer –

A lot has been said about 2012. Mentions of Nostradamus’ prophecies or the Mayans predictions, among other notions, have added to the overall feeling of uncertainty we are all experiencing.

But if we think about it, it wasn’t that long ago that the world was supposed to come to an end when Y2K marked the beginning of the 21st century. Of course, the media leveraged their scare tactics, and guess what? Nothing happened and life went on.

So at this point and especially in the spirit of the Holidays, I think we should focus on the issues within our control.

We should celebrate the amazing human spirit. We should be happy for our capacity to confront adversity, and we should demonstrate our love to those around us. We might as well live with passion for what we do and make a continuous effort to keep learning and bettering ourselves every day.

We should remain optimistic. We should stay the course and we should feel proud of our accomplishments, big or small.

If we do that, my prophecy for 2012 is that we will certainly make it a better year than this one.

Here’s to a very Happy Holiday season for all of you, and may the New Year bring us all closer to all our dreams.

    No, life has not disappointed me. On the contrary, I find it truer, more desirable and mysterious every year ever since the day when the great liberator came to me: the idea that life could be an experiment of the seeker for knowledge and not a duty, not a calamity, not trickery. — Friedrich Nietzsche

    Life is a constant experiment of the seeker…. thanks to all of you at Alma, my favorite seekers!!!

    I agree that 2012 will be a New Year in very many different ways. It will bring us a great moments at work and in our homes.
    I hope that we will have healthy, happy, and prosperous future and great fun at work.
