The older I get the more I realize how important it is to start my year gently. The new year will unfold itself anyway ... therefore, no need to try too hard "to get things going" these first couple of days. Go for it (whatever "it" is for you) but do it gently, with grace.
I feel like (and wish for) taking my time and accepting the unexpected.
Well, you know, the year is only 9 days old but it already confronted me with the unexpected.
Small things, good things, but unexpected nevertheless.
Like the time my landlady handed me a free ticket to a concert (Vivaldi's Four Seasons). That evening it was raining and I wasn't really in the mood to go out (you know, the usual haha). In addition, the Four Seasons weren't my first choice but on the other hand why waste a free ticket?
I went and guess what? I ended up enjoying myself very much because, unexpectedly, during the Summer part of the piece, they replaced the first violin with a saxophone player. Wow. Just wow. So cool and so ... unexpected. haha
That was the moment I decided that this would be my monthly wish for this first month of 2019.
