I cannot begin writing this letter without a huge thank you. Where do I start? To our readers, for being the reason we print 10,000 copies every month. To our advertisers and friends, who give us their trust month after month. To the team that puts this magazine together, pictured in the dictionary under “professionalism.” And to the thousands of people who voted for Yucatán Today as Proud Ambassador of our state in the Tourism Content Creation category during the Tianguis Turístico last month.
Don’t get me wrong; I am new here, and should get exactly 0% credit for this. It just so happens that I’m the one to express this thank you, from all of us who work (and have worked) here throughout these almost thirty-four years.
So there goes one, and here comes the next. Have you made any resolutions? Maybe, like Renée, our manager, you want to take better care of your body and mind. Or, like Olivia, assistant editor, you’re planning to overcome some of your fears. The key here, I think, is to have a plan, so your resolution isn’t just wishful thinking.
You have 365 days. Do you want to spend more time with your family? Travel more often? Discover new places? You don’t have to go far: Yucatán has it all. The Tianguis proved it, not only to our visitors, but to ourselves. You have 52 weekends, including a few long weekends! How far can you go in those 1,248 hours?
Spontaneity is important, but planning is vital. Don’t procrastinate. Get inspired, set goals, set dates and start your plans today. There is so much to see, to try, to know … Wouldn’t you like to try to do it all?
