Holiday season is here and year is coming to its end. Time when we are making the review of the year and make plans and think about the wishes for the next one. Year 2015 was chaotic full of ups and downs that made me stronger. Like they say when one door closes another one opens. My year was on one hand year of closers
and new beginnings on other hand. If I look the year in a quick glance I finished my master, fell in love and got hurt more than once, went to visit my friend in Dubai, my father had a heart attack, my brother got married, changes and bad situations at work, meet a lot of amazing people, l let some people to leave my life, see a few concerts, had some weekends at the coast, went to Sri Lanka and I still have two days in this year to get some more unforgettable memories.

But most of all my year wmasa-50 cbas a year of growth and self-awareness and evaluating believes and values. I guess that comes with getting older that some values become more and more important and that believes you have define your actions more and more. Few days ago I was on Facebook and saw note that said I am not the same person that I was a year ago and it could not say it better. I am a different person that I was a year ago and from my point of view I can say that I am a better version of me.

But it is not about me. It is about everyone on this planet. We have two options every day to wake up (if we do) and go into the day searching for our success, confirmation of our ego and think about what we want, need, deserve. Or we can wake up, be grateful that we did, go into the day do the things that are meaningful in this world or we love to do them and care for others and try each day to put smile on someone’s face, hug people to let them know that they matter to you.

The time that we are in is not easy for no one. But if you are reading this, you are richer, happier and have more luck than millions of others that are also living on this planet. We can all be grateful for a lot, but how many times we take the time to think about the things that we are grateful for?

I noticed new trend in society it is called living in the moment or for the moment. But most of the people that told me that they  live like that they didn’t even noticed half of things that were going on in that moment. And another thing I have noticed that people when the moment doesn’t fit the ideals they have, they just change the moment or even better the people around them. And this is the scariest thing if I think where we are as a society. Where is accepting life and letting people near, where are relationships and kindness and the gift of getting to know new situations, people getting new experiences and most of all the gift of getting to know yourself and growing as a person.  So don’t run! Stay, see, learn, feel and grow!DSCF2547

When are we growing as a person and becoming better person that we are right now. When situations and people brings us something that we don’t know jet and we feel uncomfortable and we stay there to overcome what life brought us.

What are most common new year’s resolutions, I will lose weight, I will travel, I will finish school, I will be more successful, have better results, I will get better job, I will do more sports, I will quit smoking…. And it is great most of them you can buy with money, you earn.

But are you ready for a bigger challenge. Set yourself goals for next year that you cannot buy. Become better son, daughter, mother or father, be kind to people, help people, love people, improve the things that kept you distanced in a relationships, be good to yourself, don’t push yourself too much, love yourself and accept yourself and take each moment just like one step on your way and embrace every moment, feel it, look at the details and be grateful for the fact that you are alive and that you are healthy.

For the end I wish you that you would remember two things (yes two guys say it better than me)

  1. Thing

Welcome to wherever you are
This is your life, you made it this far
Welcome, you gotta believe
That right here right now, you’re exactly where you’re supposed to be
Welcome, to wherever you are

  1. Thing

It takes a leap of faith to get things going
It takes a leap of faith you gotta show some guts
It takes a leap of faith to get things going
In your heart you must trust
