Looking back at 2015, I can only say that I was incredibly lucky. There’s only one or two things that I miss, and many more that I already have. I am lucky to have so many friends who always stay, no matter how many kilometres we are apart or how little we get to see each other, I am privileged to live in the city I chose, and I am proud that my hard work and determination got me the job I always wanted. Still, I am constantly craving change. I find it hard to stand still…
It’s not about changing my whole life, or running from anything, it’s about making today better than yesterday. By the end of 2016, I want to be a different person than I am today – as always. What has made me grow in the past are new experiences, new perspectives and new places, or, frankly, “first times”. With A HUNGRY MIND, I have created a platform to celebrate the new – and I am happy to blog on in 2016!
I cannot put all my first times on a schedule; because sometimes, doing something new is only special when it is also spontaneous, or unexpected. Challenging my comfort zone on a regular basis is a development I cannot anticipate for a whole year. However; there are a few big things that I feel I just have to do soon, and a few smaller things I’ve been wanting to do for ages. It’s finally time for a first times bucket list.
