When life hits you

Happy Friday beautiful people!

This morning when I woke up and was about to prepare my son’s breakfast, I looked at our calendar hanging on the fridge, when something hit me. It was that this year is almost over! December is just a few days away, and a whole year went soo fast! And you know what, I felt frightened, because how can almost 365 days pass by so fast? Standing there in my kitchen, I really felt fear. My son was growing up too fast, my parents getting older, (me as well) but more the fact that every day I postpone so many things. There’s so much I want to do, and every year I think the same. But fear is holding me back. And this morning I really felt it. I truly and deeply felt it. And it scares the heck out of me that time passes by way too fast. Do you know how long it took me to finally publish this blog? Almost a year! Yes, a YEAR! But why?! I was afraid! Afraid of maybe the blog is nothing near perfect, afraid of people’s reaction, afraid of maybe no one will read what I write about, afraid of not being good enough, maybe I’m absolutely and ridiculously boring, maybe and maybe… But then, I remembered, I’m me, I can make a little difference and I need to start somewhere. I need to share my passion with you. Yes, there are thousands and thousands of blogs out there, but we don’t all have to be the same. Why do we always have to complicate things? Why can’t we just listen to our gut and move from there? Why do we let so many things stand in front of what we want? Because the only thing which is standing in the front is fear itself. 

So this morning, I decided with all of my heart, that it’s enough! Enough of being afraid of everything will go wrong. Enough of postponing everything in life, because one day I/we are going to wake up and regret what we didn’t do. Enough of all the negative. And most importantly enough of letting fear control my life. I need to start somewhere. And here it is. 

I hope you will have a wonderful weekend!
