Turning the page of time

Sunday, December 31st, 2017

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 2017 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 2017 has been a year of both continuity and change; running my company through a busy and successful year, Misha, my beautiful enthusiastic 6-year old angel, started school in NL. We’re cherishing our time together in NL and Norway, friends and family making my life complete. Many memorable moments and (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…not my easiest year yet most is balanced in the end.

It is good to know that all the 2017 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 2018! Here I am!!”

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