Dear 2017, you taught me:
1- Remember to never text a harsh feedback or criticism to someone past midnight. No one should wake up reading a negative thought or doubt unarmed with a robe of optimism.
2- It takes great courage to decide what should last a lifetime and what should leave immediately. You will have to summon that courage every now and then to stay balanced.
3- When life offers you an opportunity to be brilliant negotiate to be memorable.
4- People are mirrors. Be careful of which ones you are looking into.
5- You always have an extra minute to be nice to someone. Try to give a hug instead of a selfie. Memorise the name of people who work for and around you. Greet them by their name.
6- ‘Journey’ is a buzz word, ‘experience’ is addiction. Try to trace your way back home. Some arms are growing old, they need your warmth to belong.
7- Don’t romanticise inspiration. Build the mood, create the vibe, do the doing. The muse always shows up when your intention does.
8- You are the product of a sperm, not a dictionary. It’s okay to misspell certain words. Mumble through some pronunciations and pause to pick the right word in a conversation. As long as you are authentic you’ll learn.
9- It’s amazing to be loved. But is even more amazing to be forgiven and then to be loved. Try to seek that and build along the way.
10- Don’t be harsh on yourself. A new year is almost here.
Brace yourself, we are moving to the creamy-chocolaty part of life. Happy 2018, and thank you for cheering us with love and support.
