Margaret Fuller: “Men for the sake of getting a living forget to live.”


Turning the page of time

Saturday, December 31st, 2016

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 2016 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 2016 has mostly been a year of continuances; running my own company (once again a busy year without any real vacation, the unforgettable five day trip to Ibiza compensated a lot though), Misha turned five (literally a handful 😉 ), still the happy camper *full* of enthusiasm and energy, enjoying and loving his life in both Norway and NL, there were many memorable moments and some really nice (dance) events to remember…the year flew by through the continuous process of letting go of past and getting to know the present and future possibilities…there were not too many highs this year, yet also not so many lows…all is balanced in the end.

It is good to know that all the 2016 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: “Oh, hi 2017! 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…

Hugh Macleod“: The old ways are dead. And you need people around you who concur.
That means hanging out more with the creative people, the freaks, the real visionaries, than you’re already doing. Thinking more about what their needs are, and responding accordingly. Avoid the dullards; avoid the folk who play it safe. They can’t help you any more. Their stability model no longer offers that much stability. They are extinct, they are extinction.”

Albert Pike: “He who endeavors to serve, to benefit, and improve the world, is like a swimmer, who struggles against a rapid current, in a river lashed into angry waves by the winds. Often they roar over his head, often they beat him back and baffle him. Most men yield to the stress of the current… Only here and there the stout, strong heart and vigorous arms struggle on toward ultimate success.”
