I am thinking a lot about freedom these days. This pandemic is taking away our freedom of movement, freedom to travel, freedom of easy decisions. The most simple things seem to cause struggles, and our reactions might surprise us.

Then when you talk to someone else, you realize they are struggling with the same things. We are in this together, vulnerable at times.

As I see, communication is the key to make things easier for all of us. Sometimes even knowing that you are not alone with what you feel makes a huge difference.

I am so grateful for my friends who surround and support me.
I can’t wait to celebrate with them, all together, once this is all over.

Ride On / Right On

Today is the day. One last day at work, then heading home. Every moment has its purpose today – I am not wasting my time. I hardly can wait to get in the car and hit the roads to meet my family in the morning.

2018, I am finishing you up today. You’ve been great! 🙂

Pure exhaustion

Having a long-haired dachshund with a 3-days-lasting diarrhea is exhausting. At least I can now say I levelled up: our first visit to the vet, completely in German is behind us. Sprachübung at its best.

They are usually pictured as the mean and dangerous beasts in our forests. The ones to be scared of. Something dark.

We all have them in our hearts. They sneak out when you least expect them. It could be a split second, while you worry about a journey. Then it’s gone.

My 3-year-old nephew didn’t like the story, where wolves are mean. He wants to hear about the happy and kind ones. There are some. They are beautiful.

Have you had enough

Getting a rejection is uplifting sometimes – it makes the weights fall off your shoulders, makes you want to take a deep breath to get ready to start fresh in the upcoming days. I got a little too many rejections lately.

But it’s good. I’ll get to start the year with a clear slate. I’ll do my best.

Now I feel like I finally managed to put my cape down. I am heading home tomorrow. It will all be good.

Serenade to my matrace

Sleeping in my own bed is all that I need to wind down and get back on track with my regular schedule after my visitors are gone. It takes a while, but it feels nice every time. It makes me appreciate all I have again and makes me think about my values and priorities. Having a nice matrace and a paper bed is just enough.
