  1. Hi Jo!

    Thanks so much for tagging me - I have replied : ) It is great to get to know more about you. I love your idea about the reality show, it would be great to touch upon such a subject. And I hope your number one goal brings you to Switzerland some day!

  2. I like you piece of advice. Time does heal and one of my goals is to be more patient in dealing with time. I also like your goal but think it will be super tough. I try not to surround myself with people who do this but sometimes it is unavoidable. Thanks for participating! It's been a pleasure getting to know more about you this year and thanks for sharing the quotes in the 30 Goals community.
