Hey guys! Are you enjoying your thursday? I’m going to spend mine studying in the sun, the perfect way to spend a thursday during exam time. I do wish I could be studying on a mountain in spain for example. I would not mind laying next to a pool there, in the shade of an olive tree, drinking freshly squeezed orange juice and jumping in the pool now and then to cool off. Fact is I would just really like to go on a holiday. I haven’t been on a real vacation since I was 16. I come from a large family with 4 kids and going on a holiday together is a costly affair. And once I moved in with my boyfriend, my family stopped financial support because my dad had a stroke and couldn’t work anymore. So I’ve been getting by, working myself and with financial support from the state for kids who study. But living and studying costs quite some money so I never really have a lot of spare cash lying arond, especially not when it comes to things that aren’t really “necessary” like going abroad on vacation. We need a new refridgerator, for instance, and that is something that immediately becomes a priority.
It is kind of mind boggling to think that we in our western, wealthy society already feel sorry for ourselves when we don’t get to go on holiday. I mean, we live in a nice house, we have all the comforts we could possibly need, but because other people can abroad several times a year I should feel sorry for myself because I don’t? F that. I should kick myself in the ass! :D
Being happy with what you have is something we rarely think of. I encourage all of you to do just that right now! And I have a simple outfit to accompany this message of simplicity. Enjoy the simple things in life! The sunshine, the grass between your toes, a kiss from your loved one before he leaves the bed to go to work, the smell of butter on warm toast, brightcolored nailpolish on your nails, the cat welcomes you back home with a “mrrrow?”, rolling on its back. Life is beautiful, even with less!
