After last weeks final heat wave, it is officially time to wave the summery sun goodbye and say hello to the embrace of golden leaves and crisp air. I am, for once, looking forward to the new season. Who knows what it could be filled with; newfound happiness, love or perhaps something more simple and just as lovely, such as freshly baked cookies or discovering new types of pasta.
So far the autumn air has been filled with incredible tunes, which I would love to share with you. Today’s song is brought to you by the wonderful duo, Milky Chance.
We go up to church
And ring the bell of happiness
We go so far and we
End up in richest poverty”
– Milky Chance, Stunner

I’m tired, it’s a phrase we mostly throw around as an excuse or as an attempt to justify our actions and behavior. It’s the simplicity in the phrase, however, that makes it so misleading.
Being tired can be mental, physical or a combination of both. It can affect you slightly, or severely; it’s tedious either way. It can be more than sleepless nights, it can be restless, wicked and sometimes, seemingly lethal.
It’s a state I have been all too familiar with. Living with constant aching desires for peace and rest, it seemed as if there was a war in my mind. All I wished for was a truce. Due to my inablity to find my inner peace, I instead found myself in a constant loop of restless nights, which resulted in reckless days. I stopped caring and walked among a path of self loathing and destruction. I started growing weary of life itself, it became heavier with each breath and to carry my body started feeling like a burden.
I broke out of the vicious circle a while back ago, but I fear of falling into that routine of old again. My life seems to be a constant dynamic between burnouts, thus feeling exhausted, and irrationnal confidence. One moment I seem to have it all together, only to watch everything fall apart in the next. Sometimes this is partly due to things out of my control. I admit that I could have always handled most unfortunate happenings better but in all honesty, I simply did not know better. Fortunately I always learned from my mistake, though I’m unsure whether I would actually take those self taught lessons in regard. I can hope that my foolish self will find peace with the bit of, hopefully growing, rationality within me.
I suppose that is the bright side to this burning pessimistic paradise I have found myself in today. To learn something must be one of the most precious things in life, so consider a broken vicious circle of restless times a lifelesson and irrational behavior a step closer to finding inner peace, wisdom and rationality.

One of my all time favorite movies is ’13 going on 30′. I watched it when I was 13 years old myself and found that I could greatly relate to 13 year old Jenna. How I longed to be an independent adult with a fabulous carreer, lover and boobs (!), or at least be the Regina George of my small town high school and steal kisses from all the hot seniors. Unfortunately my fetch high school life never actually took off and my chances to be the future head editor of Vogue have thus decreased to the point of nonexistence and ironically, the word ‘adulthood’ has, instead of sparking up juvinele hopes, dreams and wishes, started to make me feel rather anxious and downhearted.
As a so-called “young adult”, I have only set my first footsteps into this rather eerie world of responsibilities and reality, though I fear for what lays further down the road. Truly, I have a wishful feeling that my youthful senses will never decay because they are more than simply part of a number; of my age. Instead, they are a part of the core of my very excistence, a part of my heart and mind. I suppose my fear extends further than what lies on the surface, it goes beyond just the responsibilities and the reality I am forced to face. What I truly fear is the loss of who I am, the loss of that ‘core of my very excistence’.
I have met incredibly many people in my life and recently started to notice that I am not able to imagine that some of these people were young once. Perhaps that is part of my ignorance, though I like to believe that it is more than just that. This proofs itself when I ask these people about their youth. They speak of it as if it is someone elses distant memory, as it is a retold anecdote that they once heard at a bar or party. I want these young and (relatively) wild days of mine to be more than a retold anecdote, I want them to matter to me. I long to remember these days as moments that have shaped my life into what it will be by the time I have ventured further down the roads of adulthood.
On the whole, today’s life lesson, given by my overly philosophical self who likes to believe she is far wiser than she probably is, is the importance of remembering that every moment you live through, the things you do and every word you say (or write!), matters. You will find that these are part of the factors that define who you are as they set the bricks for the path of a life that you have chosen to live ♥
“How I’d love to find
That old place of mine
Feel the afternoon glow
Something warm, something slow
But our minds got small
When our legs grew tall
And our eyes don’t see right
Give me soul, give me sight”
– The Paper Kites, When Our Legs Grew Tall
On another (final) note, The Paper Kites are one of my favorite bands and it was around this time last year that I discovered my love for their words and sound. I hope you lovely readers will enjoy this tune as much as I do.
