What went right?
What went wrong?
What needs a second chance?(dream on…)
I really wanted to feel depressed and sorry for myself last week: ✔️how hard I work, ✔️how much stuff was still left to do and ✔️how I failed at what was important to me.
Then I started making a list starting from January and it did not take long before my suffer-list was overtaken by the grit-list? It was a wait-minute-watch-moment… bring the champagne…!
Me personally: I think to much focus is on what is yonder instead of taking the moment, catching up with your shadow and celebrating all the little things you have forgotten about while you were on your way to the other side of 2019.
Well, it is time to make the happy list, curl your toes and smile. You did it! You did it alone, you did it with other people, you did it in spite of other people. Make a list of you A+Team because you will be needing them in 2020 and tell them you value them- because it’s going to be a great year!
For 2020 I chose the theme of #Eggspectation: boil it or hatch it…🐣. I think it refers to starting from scratch and having potential. We’ll see how it develops.
And Merry Christmas! Eat the fruitcake and drink the Eggnog- I’ll see you in Vancouver this year. #Friends #Family

🎶Can you write me a Christmas song?
Chorus: Can you write me a Christmas song?
With no snow just sunshine in it?
Will you write me a Christmas song
with bright kites and beach umbrellas?
When you write me your Christmas song.
With sandcastles and clear blue skies.
Make sure when you write that song.
Make sure that you are in it.
Bridge: We can have a big tree bring friends, bring family.
Tell our stories around the BBQ about the year gone by.
Celebrating the long awaited summer day
With salty waters, suntan-lotion, share the good times again.
Coda: Do you hear the Christmas song?
Just a simple summer-salad song
Do you hear the Christmas song?
Just a silly simple summer-salad Christmas song…
