A look back


As the end of the year draws nearer I found myself more introspective. It’s not usual for me to reflect and look back on everything that I’ve experienced, achieved and discovered through the last 12 months. It’s a weird feeling though, reminiscing beloved moments and the struggles.

Looking back is also a way to ensure and strengthen our resolve, the priorities, values and goals for the upcoming journey that is the New Year.

If I could describe 2015 in three words would be: solitude, effort, audacity.

2015 dawn's had hardships and difficult decisions... something that spreaded to the following months... but this moments revealed themselves essential for personal growth and to prepare me for the future challenges. On the other hand this was also the year I opened myself to new experiences and new crafts.

For the new year we might have an idea of what to expect and what our part will be on it, but mostly it will be a new adventure... certain that there will be risks to be taken, fears to be beaten, Sky-High mountains to be overcome, but also sure that amongst all these challenges there will always be a break to laugh, to cherish & to love.

Our perspective of life and the things that happen to us is largely a matter of attitude and determination. Like walking through fog, visibility is dim and each step taken is a careful one, but you move forward, just focusing on your needs while treading the grey unknown trying to attain enough clarity and peace within the chaos in order to reach personal development and fulfillment. Only by the time the fog starts to clear and clarity sets, the road mapped by the actions and non-actions starts to reveal it.

Thank you so much for joining me here this year and for all the feedback provided by you. It means more to me than words can ever express.

Happy New Year! x
