Happy Simple 2014

The last year has been ful of changes and self-realization. Finishing uni, fighting the black dog and learning more about myself and how to work with my thoughts and my life, starting a job, first problems and first joys of it and of course mostly just casual simple days filled with work, family and friends.

So… 2013 is over and I am a happy person. I have a loving and supportive family, a home (even though rented for now), a job, a wonderful boyfriend and a lot of good friends. There are clothes in my wardrobe, cosmetics in my bathroom, plants on my windowsil, books in my bookcase, blankets on my bed and some money on my account and there really isn’t a thing that could make me happier or more satisfied than I am now.

I am coming to think that the more THINGS I have, the more cluttered my home and my mind really is and the more complicated life gets. So this year maybe my most important resolution is to live simply. To enjoy little things, that do not cost money and are nice and ordinary, yet often not fully appreciated. Sunshine on my face, wind in my hair, swimming in a pool, eating good food, reading a nice book, meeting a dear friend, watching the rain fall in the garden, seeing a plant grow or hearing a snail eat in the middle of the night… and being thankful for being able to experience all that.

Have a wonderful, colourful and joyous new year!
