I’ve had the best morning today. I got to sleep in and had the best breakfast consisting of a nice cup of coffee and hot pretzels. Breakfast perfection! I hope your start into the weekend is just as good as mine! Anyway.. I really felt like writing a more personal, rambly update kind of post so if you’re here for the usual beauty review you now have the chance to click off.
So some of you might remember the post I wrote about one of my best friends from the US and how we’re still very close and try to keep in touch even though we haven’t since each other in nearly 4 years, which seems like an eternity. I also wrote about how we always dreamt about traveling together and how we would make the craziest plans of all the cool places we wanted to go to. Honestly I never really believed our dreams would even come somewhat close to reality but guess what? She’s coming to Europe this summer! After years of trying she has finally managed to convince her parents to let her go to summer school in Paris! She’ll be staying in Paris for an entire month, so I can visit her there and once her classes are over she is going to stay with me for for two weeks and we’re planning on traveling to a bunch of different cities in Europe. Now it’s not set in stone yet and she still has to book the flights but it’s 99.9% sure that she’ll be making her way to Paris.
I cannot even put into words how happy this makes me. We’ve been talking about this for years and the last time we both saw each other was when we were 16 and now we’re going to see each other in around 4 month. I still can’t really believe that this is happening. I think I’m going to have an amazing summer and I can’t wait to share it all with you and blog about it.
Now as some of you may also know I was really ill last summer and though I’m physically healthy again I wasn’t allowed to do any kind of sports for months so obviously I’m not in the best physical shape fitness wise. I’m still out of breath super easily, which annoys me immensely and makes me feel worse. But since I’ll be spending quite a bit of my summer traveling and exploring new places I need to get myself into a better condition health wise or otherwise I won’t be able to travel. As frustrating as it is so start slowly I’ve starting going for walks a lot and each time I manage walk a little longer without having to take a break. I hope to soon be able to cycle to uni again instead go having to drive.
It’s like now that I finally have a goal again I feel my motivation and energy coming back. It really helps to have something to work towards to because in the end you know you’re frustration will turn into happiness once you reach your goal. Summer seems to be approaching fast now and I’m seriously looking forward to it, which is such a great feeling because I haven’t really looked forward to anything in months. It was like I was just kinda living my life without having any direction. Obviously finishing my Bachelor’s degree is my goal but I was just kind of going to Uni and trying to get good grades but when I received those good grades it didn’t even make me happy. I felt a sense of relief but other than that it almost didn’t even matter. I was just living my life without actually living it if you understand what I mean. I wasn’t really feeling alive because I was still struggling with everything that had happened and it frustrated me that I couldn’t get back to old happy and carefree self.
But now I’ve set myself a goal and I have something that is truly making me feel excited about something again. I just wanted to share this more personal post with you guys because I know there are a lot of people out there who struggle with all sorts of things on a regular basis. I’ve had a terrible last 6 months if I’m being honest with myself but things are looking up for me a lot. I’m finding my motivation and energy again and I feel like I’m truly on the road to happiness again. So if you’re having a tough time because of whatever just remember that things will get better at one point. Even though it feels like they won’t.
Thank you so much for reading!
Lot of love,
