Time Flies When…

… you are having fun. Is that how the saying goes? It also flies when you have to work hard and sleep little. It flies when you are trying your hardest to find time for the important things in life and end up killing it with the very unimportant ones.

Time is such a funny thing seriously. No matter if rich or poor, wise or stupid we all get our fair share. No more no less. No matter how hard you try to fool ourselves we will never be able to earn some more. It’s only up to us to decide what to do with it to make every second count.

In the past year there were many second that created moments I will cherish forever. Regrettably I also have to admit to a few second I have been trying my best to forget. But as I love to say ” You loose some and then you win some”. So I focus on the good things that 2013 has brought me and do not dwell too much upon the ones it has taken away from me.

You may remember my last year’s resolution – I have promised to love myself like nobody else has loved me before. Well – I have given it my best shot and almost lasted the entire 12 months. But at one point I had a look at some of the choices I made in the past year and somehow loved myself a little less. Does that happen to everybody? Does everyone go back on their word?

I guess it matters little since the entire 2013 has been an amazing learning curve and I strongly believe that a mistake is only a real “mistake” if you do it twice, three times, four even and always without realising.

Is this all a bit too vague for you guys? I’m so very sorry – some things are just too personal to share but anyway the thing I’m getting at is my new year’s resolution for 2014.

I have to admit -it is not entirely mine. I have heard it in a song and felt inspired. I have quietly celebrated a year of living in Dubai a couple of days ago. And what a year it has been – The Year of Thousands of First Times I decided to call it. And as I was approaching that day- coming hand in hand with the last day of 2013- I also decided I didn’t want to stop there. I never want this constant flow of first times to dry up. I want them to keep on coming. And that’s why my new year’s resolution for 2014 is to lose the fear of trying. They say there is a first time for everything. And I wanna know what this “everything” is.

Belayed Happy New Year everyone
