On this first day of the year, the light is veiled, like saying: something may unfold but it is yet undefined what that might be. It feels like trying to look into the future but at the same time knowing that the future depends on how you are present in the world today.
There is a song in the Netherlands that says: “Live like it’s your last day, live like there is no tomorrow….!”. It is a song that has zing and intensity and calls out to us to live life to the fullest.
I would want to add: live life as if it were your first day! So you can enter the world with an open mind, freedom and curiosity. Where you can make a fresh start without shame or guilt. Where the future can unfold through trust, care and love for people and the world.
I wish you a joyful year.
