last day of 2012

Most of you knows I am Buddhist, and today I want to share a really nice quote to end the wonderful year of 2012 and start a new year of 2013…

To lead a life in which we are inspired and can inspire others, our hearts have to alive; they have to be filled with passion and enthusiasm. To achieve that, as President Toda also said, we need the courage to “live true to ourselves.” And to live true to ourselves, we need the strength of mind not to be swayed by our environment or be obsessed with vanity and superficial appearances. Rather than borrowing from or imitating others, we need the conviction to be able to think for ourselves and to take action from our own sense of responsibility.

Daisaku Ikeda

Loved that quote so much I felt I want to live the last of 2012 like that and start the new year with this attitude.

Next year I made already so many resolutions, and I really want to fly from my own wings. Take responsibility for my own life, not be scared and just go for it. Next year it will be exciting so watch me !

Anyway happy new year everyone!

and that’s me after a long late shift in the kitchen/stockroom with my new Christmas coat a beautiful vintage find (100% wool from the 60’s!) (love it so so much!!!) (ps: thank you Louise for taking the photo!)

sorry for so many exclamation marks.. but it’s the last of 2012 so I am allowed yeah!! happy new year again!!!
