WONDERLAND

"Didn't they tell us don't rush into things
Didn't you flash your green eyes at me... 
And life was never worse but never better
In Wonderland"
- Taylor Swift (Wonderland)


Nothing that comes easy lasts. Short cuts and fast money are all just temporary illusions, your own temporary Wonderland. Very soon they just disappear. Take your time with progressing things you want to keep in your life. I do wonder however, our society values pursuing our dreams so much, is it just setting us up for disappointment? Yet there's the saying: 'Nothing ventured, nothing gained' remember? And I do worry sometimes, what will happen if I never find something I am passionate about that I can wake up to every Monday morning? How many Monday mornings do I have to wake up to not working for something I truly believe in before I give up hope?

NOTES

“After silence, that which comes nearest to
 expressing the inexpressible is music.” 
- Aldous Huxley


Oh how the beauty of creating music has been forgotten. Surrounded by everyday commitments, striving to achieve big goals, to live the bigger picture... it is easy to forget the simplicity of the emotions that the keys of a piano can inspire. You forget that it is a gift to be able to transform single notes into a beautiful melodious poem. A language of its own. You forget it is a gift to be able to create emotions at your fingertips.

ON THE ROAD

"Life was meant for good friends
 and great adventure."


This was our last bit of getaway before we returned to our books, with university starting straight after we returned home. Finally, our first holiday where all six of us were present. How difficult it is for six very different people, with different passions, interests and priorities to come together and enjoy three days away. One of us even brought her textbooks to study as she had a quiz the day we planned to return. And I left straight from work, hopping into the road trip car in my work clothes for that long 4.5 hour drive at night.  Now that's dedication to the gang. Our first holiday with the whole #squad present, and sadly probably our last, what with adult life kicking in.

ZEN MENTALITY

"I want to be like water. I want to slip 
through fingers, but hold up a ship"
- Michelle Williams

 
Overthinking is so severely entrenched in the person that I am that there's no separation from it. I prefer the term: philosophical. That's why you read what I write isn't it? Because my head of thoughts is somehow interesting. But there is a certain level of healthy thinking and once upon a time it was too much, emotions exaggerated the amount of thinking necessary. Now I've learnt to let go a lot more, to just go with the flow of life and not overthink, because "worrying is a waste of time. It doesn't change anything. It messes with your mind and steals your happiness.
