And this is my wish for my life in 2016 (and forever)

January 5, 2016

Dear Max

Forget thinner thighs, better lifestyle habits and a better work-home balance (even though I will mostly still strive for those)… this is what I want for myself. The poet Mary Oliver put it like this:

“When it’s over, I want to say: all my life

I was a bride married to amazement.
I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.
When it is over, I don’t want to wonder
if I have made of my life something particular, and real.
I don’t want to find myself sighing and frightened,
or full of argument.
I don’t want to end up simply having visited this world.”
This is it. It’s about giving, taking, not wasting time, seeing the wonder, being the wonder and being more than just a guest in life. I will try to never forget to be the bride and groom, embracing and seizing.
