Every year at the end of the year or at the beginning of the new year I write what’s important for me in the coming year. So this year I wrote on the 1. January 2016 what I want to remember in 2016, e.g. my top values, some quotes and overall what’s my life’s purpose and how I want to live out my gifts God has blessed me with. It is very challenging but good to reflect and to ponder about questions like: Why do I do things? What for? For whom? What is the purpose?
I realize that I am very different to some people. I think a lot about how I can live a purposeful life, what “counts” in the end – not superficially here in this life, but in eternity. I believe that life on this earth is so short in comparison to eternity. So I want to make sure that I live a purposeful life and not a life others want me or expect me to live. I am very excited about this coming year 2016!
