Stop And Smell The Flowers

watering the flowers in my grandmother’s little backyard. dancing up on the table and for once in my life not giving a damn about what other people think. soaking up the sun in pretty hyde park. laughing out loud. eating ice cream in the car on a stormy day. actually feeling pretty while wearing my long blue skirt and black crop top. crying in the shower and desperately trying not to make any noise so that no one would find out. jumping into the sea and accidentally swallowing the salt water. lighting a candle as a way to say goodbye. going for a run in the middle of nowhere. sitting in the rain. making my way through the crowd of people with numb legs and a spinning heart. getting endlessly excited when hearing the sound of his voice so close to me. lying down in the grass.

– things i did this summer that made me feel alive

Writing lists like the one above has taught me to appreciate things in my everyday life more. I feel like making lists can help you to remember things you’ve done on the one hand, whilst on the other hand it can put your focus at the future and remind you of the things you still want to achieve. I’m really excited about making a Bucketlist and to write down all the places I want to visit, all the things I want to do and everything I hope to achieve in life. Hopefully I’ll be able to score out some things this year! I plan on posting my complete Bucketlist on this blog soon and to keep you updated on things I’ve accomplished.
