“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things,
trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself,
changing yourself, changing your world.
You’re doing things you’ve never done before,
and more importantly, you’re doing something“,
The door to the New Year has just been opened,
the New has started flowing and it has come, full force, to bring chances.
Yes, because the beginning of a new year is a time of transition, full of hope and positivity.
The spirit of the New Year is a happy one, it spreads joy, if we let the door to our heart open.
My wish for me and you all is that, after passing through the open door to the new year, we can acknowledge how many more doors, open or to open, are there just behind the first one.
And I wish that we have the curiosity and the enthusiasm of the children along this journey of discovery that has just started, because it is with this kind of spirit that we can embrace everything that is hidden behind the new doors, releasing the fear that the unknown may be unpleasant or painful. Also because, even if it were so, we always have the chance to go back (or to move forward), to close the door open on a negative experience (that has come to bring a teaching nonetheless), and to go back to our exploration, by opening the following door. Always with a heart full of excitement for adventures and eyes twinkling with joy, along a path of great growth that leads to ourselves.
And I wish that we are honest, first and foremost with ourselves, and that we look at the world as if it were for the first time: this way lots of little beautiful things will fill our days, opening the door to the great beautiful things.
May this one be a year of Dreams and Rebirth, for everyone.
