It’s About Time

We all know phrases like “time is precious”, “time is up”, “it is about time” or “time heels wounds”. Time seems to be of importance for all of us because we do know that it is limited. Its limit makes it so precious, yet we seem to forget that a lot when we grow up. Kids don’t feel the passing of time as grown ups da and still, we waste it. 
We work hard, we do a lot of thinks that we have, but don’t really want to. Tomorrow is another day is what makes us delay things that maybe shouldn’t be delayed. We make time for anything in our lives but not enough for ourselves. 
I remember being so happy after graduating with a master’s degree because now I would only have one job. Without lectures and two jobs I would have so much free time to do whatever I want to do. Finally I could read all those books that piled up. That was what I was thinking. What I was doing was completely different. I got a job and I started working. And that is all. I did nothing of what I felt so happy to finally being able to do. Since graduation I haven’t finished reading one book, I haven’t seen any museum in the city I am living now, I didn’t do more blogging, no baking. I could go and on about all the things I didn’t do.
But the point is, I am surprised how easy and fast we forget and give up what we like to do in the chaos of life. My project for 2019 is to change that for me. I started with reading, I almost finished one of the books that were waiting to be read. Well and obviously I also wrote a new blogpost, which hopefully inspires me to do that more regularly than last year. I will try to give myself more time to be productive and do more of the things I like. Time really is important and what you do with it will matter when there no time left anymore. So believe me when I say spending more time with the people and the things you love is what will really make you happy at the end of the day.

Going Does Not Mean Being Away

via giphy.com

There are many different kinds of going. Sometimes people leave for new jobs, for love, out of fear and sometimes people have to go forever and leave life. We all know that this is just how it is. And we all have dealt with people going away or we have ourselves gone somewhere.
But what we also do know is, that leaving or being left is never easy. It hurts every time, no matter who left and no matter what the reason is. 
I am not trying to compare all those reasons for leaving and the feelings you’re left with. What I am trying to say is, that wherever you go, you will only be physically away. You always leave some part of you behind. Things, memories, stories. When someone goes away, we keep carrying everything that connects us to the person in ourselves. You can chose whether it is your mind or your heart, or maybe both. That is up to you and what you believe is true for yourself. In any way, the people and the memories about them always stay with you.
I just wanted to remind myself and maybe some of you that sometimes we think we lost everything but if we come to the point where we have hurt enough and thought about it enough, there are still possibilities to be connected. No matter how and no matter for what reason someone left.

Girls Talk: Setting Limits

Some people take a lot of punches before they fight back. They tend to load all the bullshit of others on their backs.
What I want to tell you and also to myself is: STOP. You need to start setting limits. There might be a lot you can take but you really do not have to deal with every kind of bullshit that is thrown at you.
There used to be a blog post

Don’t Be Cheap

I don’t mean that in a behavioral kind of way and this is not going to be a #GIRLSTALK about how you should not put yourself out for dating that much or anything like that.
What I want to talk about in this post, is something a lot of bloggers have already mentioned: The ruthlessness of the industry.
