Even though the new year is already well on its way, I still want to take the time to do a little wrap-up of 2018. It’s been quite the year and I am noticing that reflecting on past successes and failures is a nice practice before looking forward. Besides that, it is also a bit of an exercise to train my memory as I’m prone to lose sight of what happened at what time. Not forgetting, but more so as a result of being focused on what’s coming next and by doing so sometimes neglecting the past and present.

The final part of my website-update has to do with my about-page, or how I like to call it from this point on: My Story. While making my magazine, I get the chance to think long and hard about what I feel is important in certain areas of publishing, storytelling and life in general. I started writing about this more since the yoga retreat I've been on in Oktober. I will continue to write and will be sharing these exercises of thought and writing here and on my website.

I have this little voice in the back of my mind that always seems to be wanting more. More time, more inspiration, making more, I even want more free time to do “nothing”...go figure. It simultaneously feels like a luxury and a burden. I feel blessed with a rich and full life, that overwhelms me with exciting new projects, meeting inspiring people and a learning curve which keeps a steady steep curve.
After launching the new issue, themed Perseverance, and fulfilling all the pre-orders, we took a 2.5-week breather and this had a profound influence on me. What I can say at this point in time, is that I’m learning to look at myself and my life’s intention, with a more honest pair of glasses.
