If every year holds a message, a teaching or something good inspite of all the horror and heart ache, last year was surely the year of “surprise”. All best wishes did not protect the world from harm, nor did my personal life match up the Holidays’ expectations. Yet, it hasn’t made everything so bloody harsh all the time.
There’s detail, discussion and nuance to everything. The world is grey.
As the new year approaches, I’ve been thinking about “best wishes”. What I want to wish others needs to be exactly what I want to get myself… So my mommy tought me. I’ll just let go of the balloon lighting up this (please keep dancing meanwhile):
a nice fuck off-attitude
good rest & heavenly sleep
good (mental) health with glowing cheeks
never out off a bottle of good wine
working days that go fast and easy
the right amount of silence
a lot of love for everyone you do and do not know
a lot of courage to cherish and trust yourself
the best insights to set goals in your life
a year without loss and grief
better money handling skills
more patience for stupidity
never waste a chance to learn
the strength to change your mind when needed
accept what you can’t change or influence
a lot of sarcasm & other inappropriaties
proper use of grammar
not too many NY’s kisses from awkward acquintances and old folks
a lot of reflection & a long thinking process before any talking
a huge curiosity towards random silly facts & badass science
& the right kick-ass amount of rock music and passionate sex!
