To honour 2018 and its beauty despite the storm my sons and me have chosen a few images from our private album taken by the amazing Hana Noguchi to celebrate the good things of 2018– our little family and the love we share for each other.
I have personally learned a lot about perception vs reality during my divorce and learned that 2018 is a year where sadly still truth and honour are being replaced by perception and favours. It is a year to remind ourselves that there is a lot to read between the lines if one choses too.
The emphasises is made on the word chose which always makes me smile. Some press prefer to sadly write what sells. Truth does not sell, reality does not sell — it is often ugly lies that sell as it only helps the reader to divert away from his or her own misery and fantasize about other peoples made up difficulties. We do not judge you. That is sadly still the culture of human beings and it will not change in my life time. The only thing I hope to transmit in my lifetime at all times is a message of kindness and compassion towards ones friends, community and neighbours. I have learned that nothing else will give you internal Peace.
One specific thing I like to share with you all is the beauty of human beings I have encountered this year. Each time I attended an event and conference at home in Luxembourg or abroad I was and always am overwhelmed with the effort the individuals put into it. I have met the most amazing human beings, very inspiring, funny, and wonderful souls. The way they portrait themselves, their style, their being, their ambitions, their dreams, their worry they shared with me, their personal joys. I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all of these precious moments, letters, messages, and words you have been sharing with me. It gives me strength, love and hope for 2019. You are all unique and beautiful individuals in your own rights, making a difference for the people around you. Thank you for including me and my sons in all of this.
Happy New Year 2019 from Gabriel, Noah and me. May your New Year Resolutions be truthful, fruitful and commendable.
Love from us.
