Weddings in Mallorca 2021 by Rosa del Valle
“PROCRASTINATION IS THE THIEF OF TIME”
We spend our lives procrastinating, as if we believed we could be immortal. We take advantage of the excuse of the pandemic to keep postponing our plans for the weddings in Mallorca 2021 even though, in reality, this virus has taught us that we are not immortal at all. It doesn’t matter what age, sex, social class… if it touches you, even if you try to avoid it. And even knowing this, we continue to procrastinate… “We have years left over to do this or that”, we think. We spend our lives waiting for “the big moment” without thinking about what happens to the moments we are living now.
“When this is over”, everyone repeats until boredom sets in. When this is over there will be people who will continue to enjoy every minute of their lives as they did before and during the pandemic. Fortunately there are many people who continue to squeeze the most out of their lives.
“ENJOY EVERY MOMENT”
However, when this is over, there will be others who will continue to wait for that super moment for their weddings in Mallorca 2021 that never comes and they will do so without enjoying the little moments of every day. I don’t know if you are one of those who think: “Now that I can, I’ll do it right now. Tomorrow is too late” or if, on the contrary, you are one of those who are constantly giving yourself extensions and putting off until tomorrow what you can do today.
You will all agree that this virus does not understand time, it simply says: “Here and now”. And while it acts without mercy, we continue to wait for it to pass so that we can get back to normality. To make new plans, to travel again, to celebrate important dates, for example the weddings in Mallorca 2021, as if in these months we have not been able to do great things.
“WHEN YOU HAVE TO CLIMB A MOUNTAIN, DON’T THINK THAT WAITING FOR IT IT WILL GET SMALLER”:
If this pandemic has taught us anything, it is that we are not here to waste time. Celebrate now, not tomorrow, not next year, not when they let me go without a mask, not when we can all hug, not when we can get together with 200 other people. Celebrate everything you have to celebrate, which I’m sure is a lot, and do it however you can, because life doesn’t always give second chances and even if it does, it probably won’t be the same and you won’t want to celebrate it in the same way.
We stopped getting married in 2020 because we couldn’t get together with all the people we had invited. We postponed the weddings in Mallorca to 2021, but this year they are not making it easy for us either. And I ask myself… One year later, do you still want to invite the same people? And if the answer is yes, what do you think will happen next year?
Maybe some people don’t even have a place in your life anymore. Are you really thinking of postponing it again? Maybe you stopped doing it in 2020 because you couldn’t miss your friend R. and your friend P. And it turns out that a year later you wouldn’t even include them on the guest list. We can’t deny that relationships have changed a lot in the last year. Life happens, and enjoying more or less everything that happens to us is a matter of adapting to the circumstances.
“LEAVE FOR TOMORROW ONLY THAT WHICH YOU WOULD BE WILLING TO LEAVE UNDONE IF YOU WERE TO DIE”
-I won’t become independent until I have a job that allows me to live with the comforts I had at my parents’ house – Life teaches you that you learn from all experiences. They say that the one who has the most is not the happiest, but the one who needs the least.
– I won’t get married and I won’t have my wedding in Mallorca until we both have a permanent job and a furnished house. -Life also teaches you that that ideal life can change in a second and that all those things that seemed so important to you in the end were no guarantee of a happier and more lasting life as a couple.
– We prefer not to celebrate my wedding in Mallorca 2021 until I can do it in style with 200 guests. -As the years go by you will realise that 30 would have been enough and that to have a good time you only need a few.
-Of course, I won’t have children until we both have a good job and a house. You’ll realise that it’s the time you spend with them that they value most. And by the time you realise it, your list of priorities will have completely changed. What used to be paramount is no longer paramount.
“A YEAR FROM NOW YOU WILL PROBABLY WISH YOU HAD STARTED TODAY”
Pau Donés said: “I don’t want my present to be the time I waste thinking about the future. Living is urgent”. You can wait a year, two years or a lifetime to celebrate an important date, but it will no longer be the same…besides, it will be time for another celebration, but not this one because this one is unique and next year’s…it should be too.
