Is that time of the year again. When you start making your balance, count your sorrows and blessings. You know, like in accounting. Add, subtract and see how much credit and debit you have. You all get the idea.
So here It is what I’ve learnt over the past year:
1. If you think you hit rock bottom, think again. Bottom can be much deeper that you’ve ever envisaged. Don’t underestimate your feelings.
2. Anger will not help. Even tough some anger helps, being angry at the world is just making your life a hell lot more miserable.
3. At some point I was a firm believer in karma. You know, that belief that you receive back everything you throw In the universe.
Well, let’s just say: I am starting to doubt karma.
4. Never underestimate the kindness of people. Never. I am grateful for all the people I met this year, their grace, goodness and humanity. And even more grateful for my friends. You all know who you are and obviously you will never know because you are not reading my blog, ungrateful bastards.
5. When you think you lost hope for good, something truly good will happen and your hope will be exceeded by some kick ass reality. #viatabatefilmul
6. Be humble. Do not let anyone transform you to the point of being cruel. Is a valid lesson.
7. Maybe the most important lesson I got this year: don’t force things. Love is not an exception.
8. Is not your job to fix other people. As simple as that.
9. Give more. Living with less, doesn’t mean having less.
10. No good deed goes unpunished. I’ll tell you all about it over a cup of coffee.
So, my dear friend. I am grateful to all. Good and bad. And! an end is not a bad thing. It’s just a new beginning. I’ll stop now, I get a vibe here(!) but I promise all the above applies. Here’s to a graceful exit!
“There’s a trick to the ‘graceful exit.’ It begins with the vision to recognize when a job, a life stage, or a relationship is over — and let it go. It means leaving what’s over without denying its validity or its past importance to our lives. It involves a sense of future, a belief that every exit line is an entry, that we are moving up, rather than out.”
