    Life lessons from nature

    Life lessons from nature

    I know this is a pretty weird title for a short article, but hear me out. My neighbour has a rusty orange cat, she is an angle most of the time, but in the other hand she is a crazy one. I mean, I`m not exactly sure if she knows that she is a house cat and not a wild tiger or lion. I don`t think she got the memo. Do you know why am I saying this?!

    Summer through the window...

    Summer through the window...

    We all have been in the exact same shoes in the last 8ish months. No matter where you are, you are dealing with the uncomfortable circumstances of the Corona virus. I`m not just talking about not being able to going to the major music festivals or travel around the world, but I mean the change of seasons. This whole global pandemic started in March and this is the end of October now. I feel like the good weather and the summer in general just passed us and we were only allowed to watch it through the window. You know, it comes, stays and goes every year, but this time we pretty much skipped the "stay" portion. Came and left, and we are just blinking in surprise, wondering what just happened...

    There are "Those Days"...

    There are "Those Days"...

    We all know that life is not full of rainbows and unicorns, but there are still days when someone asks you, how are you, and your answer is "It`s been a day..." or "You know, this is one of those days..." Sounds familiar?! If yes, let me tell you that you are not alone with it. Also, if you are having one of those days right now... Just keep reading. :)

    Growing Pain or Sitting On A Cactus

    Growing Pain or Sitting On A Cactus

    I am not much different than any of you who read this text, I`m in my mid-twenties and I`m wondering where I came from and where I am headed. These are pretty hard questions especially because of all the experiences from my past; they formed me and made me the person who I am right now. When I was younger, I have always heard from people around me that hard situations in my life are just growing pain and they are going to move me foreword and direct me towards the right direction, but by now I think there were moments when I was more likely sitting on a cactus. I mean, I felt the pain out of the situation, but did not move me the direction I wanted it to and I definitely haven`t seemed to learn out of them other than "Don`t ever do this again!" or "Don`t ever trust that person!". I was wondering many times, why was this happening, but I haven`t really found the right answer to this question and I`m not sure if I will ever know it for sure. You might wonder, "But what are you exactly trying to say?!" and” Who are you?!" What I`m trying to say is that hard pasts are not always our fault, life happens and we can`t change that. I lost my mother in a really early age, I couldn’t do much... She got sick and in a matter of time she wasn`t there anymore. I didn`t deserve it to happen, but it did anyway. It formed me and made me a stronger person, helped me to understand people`s situation and their pain. Helped me to have more empathy and just be there for someone when it was time. I`m pretty sure, you all have something like this in your own life, something that you have unanswered questions about, chapters unfinished and you know what... it`s OK. This is what makes you YOU. I have struggled and still have some issues with depression and anxiety, did I ask for them?! Nooooo... Nobody does, but it happens anyway. I know it`s still a stigma in many places and situations. I`ve seen it before, but struggling doesn`t mean you are worse than anyone else or that you are failing in life. It only means that you are still a human, you still have feelings, that`s important. Nobody is perfect, I mean it. Maybe you don`t see their struggles and flaws, but they still have it. We all do…

    Change, change and some more change to change it up

    Change, change and some more change to change it up

    When this entire pandemic started around March, we didn`t exactly expected that we are still going to struggle with it in October, did we?! I definitely thought that by now we will be able to get back to normal and I was only joking about, what if this would stay until Christmas. Well… I guess, now it`s a really big possibility that Thanksgiving, Halloween, Christmas,… will be influenced by this global pandemic.
