Life is the stories you are telling yourself

Your life, as you experience it, is how you describe your past and envision your future. About the future… well, all stories are possible, it just depends on your expectations, your imagination, your fears and worries, your ability to dream, your optimism or pessimism.

The past seems to be a given, but it really isn’t. Sure, there happened all kinds of “real” things in the past. Still, already when they happened everyone experienced them differently and gave them a different meaning, according to their point of view, needs and beliefs, etc. – all these filters that each of us has.

Graduated CUM LAUDE on Thursday;-)

Just wanted to share this with you… it was a great moment for me. Gave a presentation of my thesis, answered questions – and it all went so much better than I expected!! I got great feedback from my professors and was encouraged to go on with research, articles, doctoral studies……

Not sure what my next step will be, perhaps just an article about my thesis… Anyway, I worked hard and the results were appreciated – and my worries and pessimism were just a waste of time, in which I could have enjoyed life a bit more;-) Another learning experience, which I hope will sink in…

In the last period I haven’t had much time and energy to spend here, on RB, due to the preparations for the graduation day – and the death of our dear cat, Lotje, which I have taken quite hard. I am not sure any of you noti
