And so this 2016 has ended with around 295 posts I wrote (which tells me I slacked quite a bit, honestly 😀 )
It was a good year, although my writing has consistently declined more than I’d hoped.
I got engaged and many things have changed both professionally and in terms of relations, but there’s still so much work to be done.
Looking back I think I started grasping what was important to me and started to let go of the useless things of life.
Easier said than done, but still a good start. This year I’ll have to manage an entire wedding trying to make it like our lifestyle is. Being true to our ideals.
It’s like being young again. When you’re a children or a young boy, you think ideals are more important than everything else, and so you push them. You force your way to keep the ideals intact.
Once you grow, though, you learn the hard way that this is not possible. The world can’t be changed this way, nor do you.
Your ideals are a foundation to what you want to obtain. A message, more than a true lifestyle.
You learn the value of compromise.
And now, at least for me, I’m in the condition where I want to fit my ideals into my life once again. Finding compromises to make them last and live throughout my entire life in each and every day.
While before I wouldn’t compromise with them, now I compromise for them, to make them a reality.
It won’t be easy, and it won’t be perfect, but that’s life.
