As we step into 2024, I find myself drawn to a word that resonates deeply with my soul: peace, or ‘vrede’ in Afrikaans. This isn’t just any peace; it’s a profound tranquillity that surpasses all understanding, shielding us from fear, anxiety, and negative mindsets. It’s a peace that transports us back to the innocence and hope of childhood, harmonizing our lives with the natural, orchestral rhythm of the world.
This year, I’m gently embracing a resolution focused on slowing down and savoring life, moving away from the constant hustle. It’s time to shift from the relentless pursuit of goals to a kinder, more realistic mindset. In this space, there’s no rush to an endpoint, no crippling time constraints or scarcity of resources. It’s about understanding that everything has its time and place.
In this peace, I find a unique kind of control – deeply rooted in the belief that a higher power, our creator, guides us. It’s a surrender of control that paradoxically empowers us, offering a tranquillity borne of the knowledge that the true architect of our lives is always protecting us.
This peace is more than just a mental state; it’s a way of life. It’s real, sustainable, and not dictated by Google, gossip, or the whims of social media. It’s a life where my business is not a separate entity but an integral part of my existence. There are no rigid work hours here, only actual results and a life truly lived.
As we navigate the new year, I invite you to join me. Let’s seek a peace that is not just a fleeting emotion but a foundational principle of our lives. Let’s build a reality where our professional and personal lives are seamlessly intertwined, where we measure success not by societal standards but by the depth of our tranquillity and the joy in our hearts.
Here’s to 2024, filled with peace, love, and a rhythm that dances to the beat of our true nature. Let’s rediscover the joy of living in the moment, guided by the unwavering hand of our creator, and embrace a life that is genuinely ours.
