Today it hit me how important it is to appreciate and give time to the little things in life that bring you joy.
I feel as though I am in a pretty surreal stage in my life right now. I am neither here nor there, don’t know whether I am coming or going and I feel as though I have zero sense of direction.
It doesn’t help that most of the people around me seem to be progressing towards whatever their idea of “settling down” is and for some time now, I have felt as though I have got some serious catching up to do. I have been giving it a lot of thought (probably more than it deserves) and being really unfair to myself in the process. That was until I woke up this morning.
What I did realise today was, in this very moment, on this very day, I feel content. I feel that it is ok for me to feel lost. I have accepted that life is scary but it is amazing too.
For the most part, I like to think that I do a good job of taking things as they come, but I sometimes have a tendency to neglect the importance of treating myself kindly.
So seeing as though I am feeling pretty positive today, I wanted to capture the moment. I wanted to capture my surroundings, how my space made me feel safe and secure. I found it really useful to take photographs of the little things that make me happy, my notice board, my time turner necklace that means so much to me, tea, my comfiest pair of trainers etc. I want to remember that day when I woke up and realised that I might not be where I want to be, but that’s ok. I don’t know, does any of this make sense?
For anyone who may be feeling the same, learn to find comfort in the fact that your journey isn’t going to be the same as anyone else’s but that doesn’t mean that you’re doing anything wrong or that it is any less valid just because it doesn’t fit into a particular ideal.
