Wow!! All I can say is that I am grateful to be alive and to make it to 2013.

It has been a long time blogging. I am always updating awesome events via twitter. Follow me if you want to know more on @martin_lw

Before the countdown, I had to sit back quietly in my little corner reflecting on how amazing 2012 was. A lot of great opportunities and great success. All these events all happened in less than a year and I feel I have taken it to the next level. It was all from my prayers and faith in the man above which led me to do wonderful things. “Let go, Let God.”

Now that it is 2013, I continue to do the great things and to always challenge myself and make sure that what I do aligns with my goals and passions.
