Retrospect 2014

No blog post with good intentions, no complete annual. But I want to pause and take you into what for me and for us was a special year. With height- and lows.

Nice quote for 2015, credits

I frequent in recent years experienced as spicy and I felt always be put to the test (read; losing my mother and Daryl accident), I feel that 2014 anders was. The tide seems to have reversed. Want 2014 has brought much beauty. What a lot can happen in a year. A year of travel, both for my work as a private, make friends and friends let go, freelancen, do what feels right, revelations in the field of work and health, make contacts, choose for myself and chasing dreams. 2015, hopefully you're just as beautiful!

Lows
I'll start with the lows, because we can then quickly move on to the fun part. This year, I tested a lot in health. I decided the pain in my hands, I had for some time, seriously examined when work hardly and I went after a long day at the computer no longer bottle could crank. What followed was a long way from studies. Photo's, EMG’s, neurological examinations and various MRI scans of neck, hands, arms and back. Nothing was found. Eventually I ended up in a lengthy rehabilitation process where severe hypermobility came to light. My extreme flexibility meant that I often shot in the wrong position, which was even more extreme stress. An intensive program of physiotherapy several times a week, then, dry needling and social work followed. An approach that is both physically and mentally was very heavy. Now I'm a long way, pain free but not yet. In stress situations and when using my computer, I go regularly to far. And I have to pay for the next day with tingling, stabbing and the nagging feeling. Hypermobility is chronic and I will also have to find a way to be able to do as much as possible,with least pain. A lesson in patience. To be continued dus…

Highlights
What there were many highlights. At the beginning of 2014 Jurgen and I made our long-cherished trip to Southeast Asia. Seven weeks I got off from work and the day before Christmas (2013) we left for Bangkok. The journey took us through Thailand, to Cambodia, Vietnam in Laos. We saw Ho Chi Minh bier, visited the impressive killing fields, wandered a full day by Ankor, world saw Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, visited the paradise beaches of Sihanoukville and Koh Samet, sailed for days on the Mekong, tamed the long ziplines Gibbon expercience who brought us over valleys and ravines, and we drove by scooter Pass the Hi Top Gear who also drove, only without sun and with a storm where you say against. An experience to remember, though. Similarly, this trip.

Jurgen and I, just before leaving for Asia.

The other highlight is already recommended. Migrating to Ibiza. A plan where we have been doing for a long time. We fell in love with the island during our honeymoon in 2013 Jurgens and health we decided to take a chance. The pieces fell completely in place when it seemed also additional wise for me to go slow to do. My contract was not renewed, and so I decided to continue as an independent. Last October 2014 it was far. Very recently, so. With a car full of possessions we start our adventure. And an adventure it is. I'm just glad we did it, the experience makes me richer and makes me realize what's important. In de categories Ibiza – our story Learn how it decays us.

In Short; an eventful year. One for the books. What was your height- and lows in 2014?
I wish you all a wonderful New Year, a big party and wonderful 2015!

Happy New Year, love from Ibiza!
