“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” Albert Einstein
Time flies. And I enjoyed every moment spent last month. When a new year began it feels as if I started all over again, yet I know better.
I know that there are things I need to improve and things I need to let go. But life is full of surprises. Just when I think I got better, I learned that I need to learn more. Each and every day.
I consider myself a very organized person. I make tremendous effort to come on time to every appointment.Try to stick to a plan. Try to keep a promise I have made to someone. And I don’t think I need improvement in that area.
Until two days ago. I promised a good friend that I will meet that person but I got up too late and never showed up. That person ended up waiting for me alone. When I realized the damage has been done, it was too late. I can’t believe that I was capable of standing someone up. But I did. And it makes me sad thinking of that person.
I learned a very important lesson to manage my time better, should I have another appointment the next day, to have everything ready the night before.
With that said, I learned to appreciate another person better and make it a priority.
Other than that, life is a miracle. It happens every day. Every single moment I spent is a miracle to me. From each lunch and dinner date I spent with my fiancé, each meal we savor, my favorite tea, the night walks at Kirkland waterfront, another culture, our home on quiet nights by the beach, pampering myself and many more.
Make every day a special occasion.
