Today is my birthday! It doesn’t excite me as it did when I was a child, but must admit, that it is a nice day and being celebrated a bit is not at all bad!
There is something about birthdays that makes you think about life in general. How the past year was? How we wish that the coming year will be? As my birthday is also very close to the end of the actual year, this is normally a time for me to think about these kind of things.
So how was this year? Lots of ups and downs. Many thoughts about all sorts of things and about work in particular; what exactly do I want to do, how do I want to do it and so on. Because what I thought I would do last year, looks totally different this year.
This year I learned that my family and its well-being is the most important thing in the world.
This year I learned that I think way too much about what I think that others think of me and that that is a shame and a waste of both energy and time.
This year I learned that it is important to enjoy what I do.
Next year I want to continue to help others to help themselves, whether it is related to money or other things.
Next year I want to keep develop my creative side and doing more of the things I enjoy.
Next year I want to be better at focusing on the things that are important to me.
So I might not exactly know where I am going or what I will be doing, but I am sure that it is going to be an exciting ride and can’t wait to see what the coming year has in store for me!
