Turning the page of time

Thursday, December 31st, 2015

Today is that unique and special day in the year when one day makes a whole year difference; we turn the imaginary page of time tonight and after celebrating it we wake up in a brand New Year. By then, page 2015 of the ‘book of life and the world’ has been completely written, and we have stored all experiences of the past year in it.

The year of 2015 has been a year which continued where 2014 left it; my first whole year running my own company, a busy year without any vacation (had some nice weekend trips though), Misha turned four and started kindergarten/pre-school *also* in NL, the big little angel is getting completely bi-langual (and a Silver member for KLM Flying Dutch ha! 🙂 ), I electrified my mobility from LEAF to Tesla and enjoyed some very nice (dance) events to remember…all in all been a splendid year which included, as always, the continuous process of letting go of past and getting to know the present and future possibilities…highs and lows are all balanced in the end.

It is good to know that all the 2015 experiences are stored in a safe place; in my heart and my memory…I can look back, laugh, cry, read, learn, and all of that without any regrets!

Writing things down and then turning the page of time also means that things can be put to rest…it is a good moment to go on and look forward towards everything that future offers and say: “2016 here I am!!”

Time…it is o-so relative…I wish everyone a splendid life in the Now, filling each moment with unconditional love, share it and pass it on…

Hubert H. Humphrey: “You cannot go around and keep score. If you keep score on the good things and the bad things, you’ll find out that you’re a very miserable person. God gave man the ability to forget, which is one of the greatest attributes you have.
