The two sides of the coin (persistence and easygoing) were quite hard to balance this year.
On some days when I felt absolutely useless, an order would come in and nothing gave me more joy than wrapping a fabric and sending it to a happy customer.
From exploring my personal tastes and preferences to acquiring new skills to stepping out of my comfort zone, this was another year of extreme learning.
Someone told me this year that I need to start learning how to celebrate my achievements. It’s hard for me, since I sometimes feel I have not really achieved anything.
THE BAD 2017 had ended on what I would describe as an incredibly high note. I got contracted by one of my biggest clients, for an end of year event in November…
I experienced the fluidity of things, yet the irreversible nature of certain life events, which was both a good thing and a bad thing.
I prayed, thought of the things I enjoy doing, spoke with a few people, read (well, tried to read) a few books and ended up more confused than ever.
…how could you give me such high hopes and leave me out in the wild, like the Yoruba demon that was my current job didn’t break my heart enough…
I made a change this year. To try and really “feel”. Let the emotions wash over me.
There is something about how travel opens up your mind and sorta changes your perspective to life.
