Holiday feel… Oh December!

Do you ever get that feeling when December comes and you start reminiscing about your life and how this year has been? That’s exactly where I am now. I’ve just renewed my residence visa for 2 more years which means if I decide to complete that, I’ll be in UAE for 7 years by 2021.

My life here has been full of surprises, the original plan was to play house as I call it. However, the universe drew me back to flying and it’s been a rollercoaster ride! Regrets? Some, Lessons? A million, Happy times? Definitely, Loneliness? Oh yes! But I wouldn’t change much of this time. Now I will concentrate on back up plans in case of waking up one day and realizing it’s time to move on.

There’s just something about the last month of the year that makes us nostalgic. Maybe it’s realizing how fast life happens and we cannot afford to loose precious time. We should be grateful for what we’ve had, communicate more with our loved ones, visit family more often and just try to live happily. Do it before another December knocks on your door! This year I am grateful that my eldest sister is coming to visit for the first time since I moved to this region. Can’t believe neither of my sisters has been here so I’m super excited!  I’ll get to play tourist guide and show her around. It’ll be one of the few Christmas that I won’t be flying somewhere and I am very happy about it!

One of the biggest lessons I learnt this 2018 is that if you feel the need to reach out to someone to tell them how much you miss them and care about them, you should not be afraid to do so! Even those friends who distance has played its role on, talk to them, meet up and you will see that the majority will be more than happy to reconnect!

Happy Holidays!
