I had been thinking about these things for a long time, and even wrote down a couple in my notebook, but I think the New Year's eve is the best time to put it all out there in writing. Some lessons may sound weird, others cliche, but bear with me if you can. I hope at least one or two of them make you think a bit, and that some might be useful in the coming years. I apologize in advance on any 'preachiness' you may encounter.
Here are some things I have learnt:
- Whatever happens, happens for the better. Not ‘best’.
-There is hope for humanity as long as there is hope for you being a better person than you presently are. If you stop now, the hope will diminish.
"For last year's words belong to last year's language, and next year's words await another voice" ~ T.S. Elliot
Hope you enjoy! And to each and every one of you I wish a Happy New Year!
