I don't know about you, but this year has been full of incredible joy and yet there have also been moments of deep sadness. For me, the joy has been centred around my family, especially my Fiance and two children, and the incredible hope that blockchain technologies have given them, given us all for the future. For the first time in my life, I have actually started to believe that we can change the world. I have also realised just how much I want the world to change, not just for myself, or my own family, but for everyone.
This year, many people I care about have lost loved ones or have had the unfortunate news that a loved one is very sick. My brother had open heart surgery and we have been doing what we could for our elderly neighbor who has been fighting cancer. Witnessing all of this, being a part of these struggles and being aware of the devastation of war, plaguing our planet, I find the only way to find the joy is to remember what is important. There is only one thing that is important me and that is the chance to love those around me and have adventures and laugh. Or to be there to hold them, to dry their tears, to give them hope, to show them they are never alone. We can all do that as best we can, but when we are connected in the right way, we can do that for everyone, near and far. We can have a material difference to the lives of those who are struggling against incredible adversity many of us can barely comprehend.
I'm sorry....I'm aware that this is rather rambling. To articulate some of this is extremely hard.
I'll finish with this. When you are chasing your dreams, try to chase the ones where everyone wins.
Big love and happy new year
