As 2023 draws to a close, I’d like to extend my best wishes for a wonderful holiday season to all my friends, supporters, collaborators, clients, and future connections. ❤️🎄
This year has been my first full one as an independent entrepreneur, and reflecting on it brings a mix of emotions and thoughts.
Saying goodbye to LEGO was more bittersweet than I might have admitted. My years at LEGO were quite fantastic, and I look back on that time with great joy. What I miss most is the camaraderie with the people who became my LEGO family over 13 years.
There’s a saying, “out of sight, out of mind,” and from my small office, I’ve had to reflect on how quickly one can be forgotten. This reflection has made me realize how naturally introverted I am and how that often leads to isolation. So, in 2024, I’m determined to work harder at maintaining old relationships. 👏🤗
⭐️ If I were to highlight a few key moments from 2023, I’d start with April when I became a certified mindfulness consultant and teacher. Essentially, this was a formalization of the extensive personal research I’ve conducted on the subject from 2016 to 2023. With this certification, I’ve gained even more tools to share my knowledge, which I plan to do much more in 2024, leading to my next highlight.
⭐️ I’ve just concluded negotiations with American company Ora, Inc., where I’ll join in 2024 as a consultant and inspirator. Ora, Inc. is a world-leading, full-service eye research organization, and this partnership will provide me with a unique platform to share my professional insights and personal journey with vision loss.
I see it as an opportunity to demonstrate that life’s daunting challenges don’t have to inhibit dreams or diminish one’s impact on their surroundings. That obstacles can be transformed into opportunities to make a meaningful difference.
🙏❤️ I hope you have a lovely holiday season with your family and loved ones.
🎉 And I hope you enter 2024 feeling valued and knowing that you make a difference to many. Even if you’re wondering what that might be, remember, we all matter to someone, and with that knowledge, we can more easily make a difference to others.
That’s the sentiment I hope you carry into the holiday season and beyond. 🤗
From the heart – HAPPY HOLIDAYS
