Hello, lovely people,

I am writing to you from the land of boxes and bubble wrap as once again I am in a midst of moving my life from one place to another. Moving is probably one of my least favourite things to do in the world, so to come up with a logical reasoning as of why I am doing it for the 3rd time within the space of 12 months is impossible. I guess, life just keeps swinging me from one corner of the world and opportunity to another and I am just trying to catch up while also keeping my sanity during the process.

Nevertheless, this time the move I am making is probably as big as when I moved from Latvia to here. At least it feels like it in my heart and in my mind, because even though exciting, it feels extremely bittersweet due to the fact I am about to say goodbye to a place and people that had become a sort of a home to me for a while.

Hi, lovely people,

There are so many things I have wanted to write here for a long time. Happy things about my life that were happening, that were changing and progressing. I still feel guilty talking about them and even sometimes thinking about them to myself, as I am not used to life giving me things I want, providing me with happiness.

For a long time I was lost in regards to my life, dreams and what steps I should take next. I knew what I wanted, but each time there was an obstacle in front of me, either created by myself or the environment around me. Now, I think as I stepped over one, I have started a chain reaction of breaking them all, and yes -  it feels amazing, beyond words amazing. But, also, it is making me feel scared. I am getting that feeling in my stomach, you know - the one when you are on a rollercoaster and it drops, and your whole insides sink. And, it is because for once, I have something to lose.

Hello, lovely people,

With July almost at its end, and more than half of this year gone by, it isn't really a surprise that life has changed in bigger and smaller strokes, almost changing the picture completely. In a true nostalgic manner I cannot help but think about the past, as it helps me look at my progress and though hard months have gone by, see the benefit some challenges have brought. But, it's important not to make a habit of doing so.

I used to dread goodbyes, and for those who read the blog regularly know I have struggled with farewells, as I am not one for letting go. However, I have learned recently that a hard goodbye, the one you do not want to say, can actually be a testifying factor to the good you are leaving behind. So, therefore in a sense of the word it is a "good" bye (mind blown).

Hi, lovely people!

I don't know about you, but to me it feels like Summer is rushing by before my eyes. So much has happened within the past two months and so much is to follow, it can sometimes be hard to slow down and breath, take a moment and enjoy. So, we need to make ourselves stop now and then, or else life will make us, as it did to me this week past, tying me to the bed due to what can only be described as a demonic possession. 😷

Being kinder to yourself has been something I have touched on before, nevertheless for some time now I have been thinking about the kindness we show others. I have started to have this very unsettling feeling lately, a pattern I have sensed among people, where we not only view ourselves as disposable, running down our bodies and mental health, but also more and more treat those around us the same.
