2015 | Victor Benoun

It’s been an interesting year. I know it’s not over yet, but we are certainly in the twilight of 2015. I find myself asking questions, looking for answers and trying to connect the dots as never before. Maybe it’s because I have a milestone birthday coming up and I’m trying to make sense of it all, and want to make sure I contribute to making the world a better place in some way.

This year has brought some wonderful surprises and some heartbreaking losses. I have lost a few friends this year that were way too young but will be in my thoughts forever. I have also made new acquaintances, taken on challenges and became an advocate for those who can’t speak for themselves. At times I have lost my own way, and then found it again, and then lost myself once more. Maybe that’s what happens as you grow older; because the meaning of it all, life, becomes more important. I know that age is just a number, and whatever meaning I put towards it is a self-imposed limitation, but it’s made me more aware of what I need to do and want to do.

What about you? What has 2015 been like for you? What challenges have you faced, what surprises have you enjoyed and what crisis has set you back? If you want to share I will be happy to talk about it with you.

In my quest for answers I stumbled across a video which has really captured my attention, in fact I watch it every day and some times more than once a day. I feel like it has really helped me focus on what is important, on what I want to accomplish and how I want to feel. I know it is just a video but I wanted to share it with you in case you are experiencing the same emotions. I hope you enjoy it and if you have time, let me know what you think.
