Dear 2018, I’ve been waiting for you for a while now. Despite trying to enjoy every bit of 2017 to the fullest, and generally having fond memories of the year that has come to its close, I am excited for what’s to come because I have a feeling you’re gonna be by far the best year of my life.
I came across a quote recently: “When something good happens, travel to celebrate. When something bad happens, travel to forget it. If nothing happens, travel to make something happen.” Three weeks back I found myself once again on a plane taking me to the US. First on my schedule was Chicago, then New York.
When was the last time you stopped and watched the seasons change? I mean really take notice.. As I was sitting in my garden this past weekend, absorbing all the Autumn beauty, I couldn’t help but reflect on the past seven months of my life..
Yesterday, I looked into the calendar and saw the date – August 24th. It’s been five months to the day since my 29th birthday. Seven more to go – to the big 30. Yeah, I’m almost half way through my last year of my twenties. How will I look back at my twenties as a whole? Will I look back and think man, I’ve had the time of my life?
I love thunderstorms. They always bring a great deal of peace into my heart and also ignite the inner child in me. The inner child who keeps dreaming of the impossible, who loves the fantasy stories and likes to create her own. There is just something so damn inspiring about thunderstorms.
Chick-flick books about love with the inevitable happy endings have never been my thing. I always thought I can do better than that! Turns out, life can get so hard sometimes, that the guaranteed happy endings might be just the thing you need.. Especially when like me you find yourself absolutely refusing love for whatever reason.. Sounds like you? Then carry on reading and find out through my personal story how even you can fall in love again.
…or maybe you were not, but just prefered not to know.. Whatever the case, I just thought I’ll give you a few fun facts about the person behind all this, should you be interested (or maybe more than a few…) So, if you’re brave enough and decide to carry on reading – nice to meet you!!! And welcome to my crazy mind.
I looked at him and was overcome by affection. His big green eyes fixed on me. His pleading look making me feel like I was the only one that could save him. Like I was the only one in his world. Like I was his only chance to be happy. His look almost reliant. I realized there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for him. I was too much in love to deny him anything.
Demain tout commence is a beautiful, heartfelt movie, but it’s the overall message of the film, which resonated with me so much, that I consider its biggest quality. It’s just way too often that we forget to truly live our lives only because we’re afraid to face them..
