The pattern is that there is no pattern. We often arrive at this conclusion when looking at property market statistics and trends with its many variable factors. Upon reflection, we can conclude that this is not dissimilar to life. What this means is that we can expect the unexpected and predict that there likely will be the unpredictable! And while the world around us continues to change, in big and small and unexpected and unpredictable ways, YOU are what remains. It’s YOU having the experiences of your life, and it’s YOU playing all of the roles that you play. Being able to focus on YOU creates the foundation to gracefully and skillfully navigate the fluctuations that come with life. Incidentally, the ECG machine teaches us that that if there were no ups and downs, there is no life. Life really happens between the peaks and troughs.

We’ve been learning lots about trees with the Snymans Caterpillar Foundation*. While Nature makes thriving and blooming look easy, the secret really is contained in the details- position, sun, water, earth, air and nourishment. And so it is with humans as well- tending to body, heart, mind and soul (yes, even for lawyers!) creates the perfect setting for growth and blooming to occur naturally and gifts us the opportunity to appropriately respond to whatever may be going on. It also allows us to treat ourselves, others and situations with kindness. And just like trees, nurturing rather than forcing makes us thrive.

May we remember to trust the process and to be open, willing and as ready as possible for the unexpected and the unpredictable. May you remember what it means to shine your light, and may 2024 be your best year yet!

*The Snymans Caterpillar Foundation is our non-profit wing focusing on education, poverty alleviation and environmental sustainability. We’ve planted a total of 214 trees since the foundation’s inception in October 2022. Click on the link to see how you can get involved.
