Here we are, standing at the edge between 2 years and you automatically get the feeling that something special is happening. When you have a realistic look on it, the beginning of a new year is of course not different from any other day of the year. You have the possibility to change things about your life every day and only because there will be standing 2014 behind the date tomorrow, nothing has to be different.
Still “Gamlárdagskvöld” (old year’s eve) makes us think about all the things that have happended to us in the last year. We remember the goals that we had set ourselves and the difficulties we feared.
When I think back I wonder how so many experiences can fit in only 8.760 hours. 2013 was the first year that changed my life completely, I finally finished school, got an assurance for my medical studies and I came to Iceland. I started learning a new language, working and living on my own. I said goodbye to my family and friends and got to know so many wonderful new people. I realized what it means to be alone with yourself and learned to appreciate the person I am and the things I am able to do through that.
I’m grateful for every single moment in 2013 and I want to thank every one of you, for being with me, for making me smile and for believing in me!
I wish you all the best for the new year and the hope, that everything will turn out the right way somehow!
I’m already excited about all the things we will do together in 2014 🙂
