sometimes all you have is your mind, and then it is up to you whether you fill it with good things or with bad ones. what do you choose? today i choose the best things possible, like travelling and paris. i got tired of saying this again and again, but things have been very challenging lately. i must admit - all of my essential plans for two thousand sixteen have not worked out. it is disappointing, but there is nothing one could do apart from accepting it and moving forward. this is exactly what i am doing right now - making new plans, looking for ways to make them happen, nurturing my mind in order to not loose faith in my own abilities. eventually it will work out. of course, it will.
meanwhile i am here, working on a hot july day. no trip is happening for me this summer, which seems like the most upsetting thing ever, because i grew up being used to travelling in summer. every summer vacation meant a trip, sometimes a few. well, not this time. so, i went through a couple of phases. at first, i was hopeful and dreamy. i wanted to go on a trip, i wanted to be in another city, i wanted to meet new people, speak another language, eat different kinds of food, go shopping and buy new clothes, as well as a few books. i wanted it so badly, that i could not fall asleep at night due to the thoughts in my head. the more i thought about it, the more i believed that it was possible, when...it was actually not.
