This years was… a tough one. It was insecure and restless, with a lot of ups and downs.

But as I wished at the end of 2022, I must confess that it brought me relevant people.

I had more moments of being tired or looking for some motivation than the previous ones. Because life is not only in pink and with lights. It has also moments when all you need is… a bed to sleep.

I’ve started to do more sport, I travelled enough, I had quite good human relations.

It was fast and I don’t know when the time flew.

It proved me that if I am patient enough, the reward will came back to me.

Thank you 2023 for all your learning! I’m grateful to you. I feel now stronger and more confident in myself.

2024, please be more kind with me! I am ready now to grow, to accept any change you propose and to enjoy life.
