2017

5 JANUARY 2017

At this time of year, it seems unavoidable to look back and not take stock of another year lived. It is an exercise I perform, seeking to learn from the bad and the good, appreciating those wonderful experiences that I don’t want to forget and leaving behind anything that does not contribute something positive to my life. The best of this past year was, needless to say, the birth of my second daughter, and the launch of my first book. As for the future, I vow to continue enjoying a soft caress, a sincere kiss, laughs… those little things that imbue life with meaning.

But it is true that the world is being shaken by terror, suffering, and the hardships of others, which feel distant to us. Problems that have no easy solution. What we do have is the option and ability to change, beginning with ourselves and our surroundings. Helping each other, learning to respect each other, investing our energy in positivity and recovering what is essential: empathy, respect, affection… all those things that make us more human.

It is up to us to continue working, in order to step by step achieve that which now sounds almost like a cliché: a better world, the world that we deserve.

I hope that enthusiasm, dreams and respect give life to a new year.

Happy 2017,
V
