Welcome 2016

I have caught myself a few times writing 2015 instead of 2016 ... Yet I have noticed the mistake, just as I have written the number 6 - It's fun to observe one's habits adjusting actually rather fast - in some things ...

The new year brings about a feeling of freshness - a new paper calendar for 2016 starts with empty pages to be filled - I do like the symbolical act of holding the new, empty calendar in my hand: Holding the coming year, 365 days ...

My resolution for 2016 is to have no resolutions as such.
A word for 2016 is just in the tip of my tongue... I am patiently letting it to find its form and sound.

I cherish the following words of Thich Nhat Hahn - they make one feel light and at ease:

Be yourself.
Life is precious as it is.
All the elements for your happiness are already there.
There is no need to run, strive, search or struggle.
Just be.

The sweet everyday life is catching up on us:
It has been nice to see colleges after holidays - and be positively surprised that you actually remember the codes both to the pc and network!
Adjusting yourself from being a B person back to being an A person.
Morning routines with setting the tea over and toasting the bread, wondering if it is going to snow or rain later on and checking the weather ... 
And realizing all of a sudden, that it already is Friday - And that the weekend is at hand!

I wish you in 2016
Good health and many special moments with those dear to you,
wisdom to choose how and where to set your focus and energy,
and time each day to that which matters most to you,
