To be yourself

‘Be yourself!’ is, in my opinion, a cliche and overused saying that is thrown around far too easily and carelessly. As a kid, I used to say it all the time. I saw a beautiful spark in staying true to my crazy self but as I grew older, this spark faded into a dim light of past hopes and optimism. Continue reading

Red sakura

Flower symbolism is yet another aspect that makes life so utterly romantic and precious. The Japanese Sakura, which you likely know as the cherry blossom, symbolizes how life is short yet beautiful. This is due to the fact that cherry blossoms only live for a couple of days before they fall off their trees, though they are undeniably beautiful during this short lifetime. Continue reading

Downtown

“When you’re alone and life is making you lonely
You can always go downtown
When you’ve got worries, all the noise and the hurry
Seems to help, I know, downtown
Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city
Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty
How can you lose?
The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares”
– Petula Clark, Downtown

Believe it or not, but I have a lowkey obsession with the 1950’s and 1960’s. Audrey Hepburn and Twiggy have been my style icons for the longest of times, though I am sure you would not be able to tell from this specific photo. Continue reading

Give yourself time to heal

Happy new week! It is the last full week of 2016, how bizarre is that? The year has once again truly flown by and it felt like an overall whirlwind. Though I don’t want to spill too many words regarding 2016 (I’ll save that for a later post), it is undeniable that it is becoming more and more tempting by the day to do so. The realization that it is almost 2017 is something indescribable and provokes so many emotions within me, most of which are incredibly contradicting and it simply won’t leave my mind.

There was one lesson I learned this year that I deemed important enough to write a seperate blog post about; give yourself time to heal. It is not the most quoteable life lesson, nor is it the most memorable but exactly that makes it so important. It is such a forgettable lesson, one that I have admittedly forgotten quite often as well but it is so incredibly important and I can’t stress that enough. My year has been full of rough patches (image), after which I never gave myself the time to relax and simply heal. I admittedly did have long periods of unproductivity but the stress always remained. In the end, I had never actually given myself a chance to rest and rejuvinate at all.

It is okay to feel sad, all of us do sometimes; especially during this cold and blue season. It is important to let yourself be sad for a bit and not beat yourself up about it. But after that, you should not forget to give yourself time to pull it back together before delving back into your everyday routine. What I am trying to say is that recovery takes time and that there is absolutely nothing wrong about it.

“I will be your home
Keep you warm when it’s cold
I will try to be what you need when you’re low
I can only promise the girl that I am
I’ll do anything that I can
Meet me on the road to recovery”
– Broods, Recovery

Where have I been?

My last vlog was uploaded on September 25th, though it feels like it has been an eternity. There have been events and issues that occupied me, which I will elaborate in this terribly late, but much needed, update video.

I have no idea where my sudden longing to record a video came from, though I’m admittedly quite happy it returned. Hopefully I will be able to publish more video’s after finishing my exams amongst other real life projects. Thank you for your patience, I appreciate it tremendously!
