In this issue, we address being our best selves. There are so many ways we can do this, but we don’t need to make it complicated. It is my belief that we are put on the Earth to live life to its fullest, which means maintaining a healthy lifestyle through regular exercise, eating well, taking care of our mental health, enjoying culture in all its forms, and embracing the beauty of nature.

For me, living my best life also means reaching out and helping others. From the time I was a small child, I have understood the importance of sharing the things I love and giving what I can to improve the lives of others. Now that I have made it my life’s work, I feel fulfilled in a way I didn’t know was possible.

I also believe that living our best lives entails letting go of fear and stepping outside our comfort zone. Doing so allows us to expand our experience so that we grow in knowledge and better understand our world. It can also increase our humanity and unleash the joy of discovering new cultures and a myriad of ways of looking at things.

In 2019, I wish for all of us that we open ourselves up to new experiences, explore parts of the world we’ve never seen, indulge our love of music, art, and literature, and experience the fulfillment that comes from giving. In 2019, CKW LUXE will continue to deliver articles that will challenge us and help us all become our best selves.

Thank you for your tremendous support.

Happy New Year, everyone!
