It’s official – Past mistakes can lead to copious amounts of comfort food accompanied by the watching of the rom-est of romcoms, excessive reflecting on life choices and most importantly: making bad new ones. Which, after the fact, can usually all be blamed on wine (and the likes). But there is also wisdom to be gained in our losses, like there is in most things in our lives. So looking back on minor fuck-ups may bode well for avoiding them in the future – and these pensive ponderings I will be sharing will (hopefully) be the birthing ground of new wisdoms and better approaches to myself, love and life in general. Here’s hoping!

- The sudoku of lifeLife has always been a puzzle for me. And not even one I’m planning to solve anytime soon. Mostly because the ‘how’, the ‘why’ and the ‘what’ of it oftentimes completely elude me. And also because I’m a lazy fuck. It does kind of explainContinue reading “The sudoku of life”
