Happy New Year!

It’s New Year’s Eve. Time to say goodbye to 2015.

As usual, looking back, it feels like the year just flew by. For me, it was a year of both highs and lows. I guess that’s really always the case, although some years seem more of a rollercoaster ride than others. It’s a sappy cliché, but it’s also true – without the lows, I probably wouldn’t appreciate the highs as much.  So while I really could do without the lows (especially the ones from this year), I would hate for my life to be a plateau with no thrills at all, and the lows are what made me strive for the highs.

A few months ago someone very dear to me posted a quote attributed to Mark Twain on Facebook and it resonated deeply with me:

Twenty years from now
you will be more disappointed
by the things you didn’t do
than by the ones you did.
So throw off the bowlines,
Sail away from the safe harbour.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.

So that’s my wish for you for 2016. Explore. Dream. Discover. Cast off the bowlines and try something new. Be silly. Be brave. Be yourself and don’t care what anyone else thinks. Be healthy. Be happy. Be more.

Bring on 2016!
