Merry Christmas & Happy New Year 2018

Posted: December 20, 2017  |  Categories: Other

HO HO HO, is that time of the year, again?… it’s just me or times seems to fly by so fast! My favorite holiday season is back, as well the tradition: my Christmas blog post. If I told in the past that “it was a year of radical changes in my life”, I was lying! Nothing will compare to this last 5 months of the year and with the upcoming year because family is growing this time with a baby boy and I’m currently moving to a brand new a bigger house… exciting times! You may notice that the number of blog posts published in my blog has been decreasing but I promise that this behavior will change when I’m definitely living in my new home (at least until the child is born hehe).

Is time to look the past and plan the future, forget the worst that happens, look into the future and embracing it with hope and full of goals and new challenges. Time to remember your dreams that are lying dormant in a box and, at least try to concretize them, even that you fail! Better try and fail than never having the courage to try. For me, family and friendship are the best we have and I intend to have them around and enjoy their company.

To all my readers, friends, coworkers, to all Microsoft Integration Community (BizTalk Server, Logic Apps, API Management, Service Bus and so on) and Visio Community, MSFT Product Groups, all the Portuguese Communities, my MVP “family” and of course to my family, my sincere wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Thanks in advance for all the support and encouragement given throughout this year and hope that the next will be a year filled with new articles, I promise that I will continue to share knowledge hoping that they can help someone.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year 2018: Sandro Pereira blog

And in my native language (Portuguese):

HO HO HO, é sim… é aquela época do ano no qual podemos nos tornar crianças de novo! E como já se tornou habitual nesta época do ano, é como uma espécie de tradição agora… A todos os meus leitores, amigos, família e para todas as comunidades, os meus sinceros votos de um Bom Natal, um Feliz Ano Novo e um 2018 cheio de bons negócios, muita saúde, felicidade e claro muitas integrações.

É hora de olhar para o passado e planear o futuro. Esquecer o pior que acontecer, olhar para o futuro e abraçá-lo com esperança e cheio de novos desafios e novos objectivos. Tempo para recordar seus sonhos que estão adormecidos numa caixa qualquer e, pelo menos, tentam concretizá-los, mesmo que falhe! Pois é sempre melhor tentar e falhar do que nunca ter a coragem de tentar. Para mim, a família e as amizades são o melhor que temos e pretendo tê-los ao redor e desfrutar da sua companhia.

Desde já obrigado por todo o apoio e incentivo dado ao longo deste ano e que o próximo seja um ano recheado de novos artigos, da minha parte fica a promessa que irei continuar a partilhar conhecimento na esperança de poder sempre ajudar alguém.
