October Love – my yearly resume
Hi my loves,
the month of October has always played a special role in my life. Not only because of the seasons change and my fave fall season with all its amazing colors but even more because October also means turning one year older. Therefore I use to take some time to do my yearly resume, my very own annual balance sheet.
I have to admit that I have trained some kind of inner calmness during the years. Not only because turning back the hands of time is not possible but also because I have learned to enjoy the single moment, living in the here and now. This is something which was really hard for me just a few months ago. Today, there are also still some situations when it’s simply not possible. But in the end, time is the only thing that really matters. Time to spend with our beloved ones, with our family and with ourselves.
Of what avail is it to own the most important and most beautiful consumer goods if you do not have the time to enjoy them? Time is the biggest good one could have and we unfortunately are wasting it too often with thoughts like “Well, I will do it next year. I can also do it tomorrow” etc etc. Time is limited and for this reason we should handle it carefully and gently. Day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute.
When looking back at the past year I can say that it was some kind of patchy. A lot of amazing, surprising, emotional, funny, touching and also difficult, sad and bad moments. But all of these things in summary built me to the woman I am today. I know there a lot of women with panic in her eyes when it comes to the big 3 or even worse: everything afterwards. But ladies let me tell you one thing: relax, lean back and enjoy! Life will go on and it well get even better every day!
It is just important to not compare yourself to anyone else, to not run after any ideals, to not regret being not a teen and to not struggle, struggle, struggle. The appearance is fading but what’s inside will stay inside. Forever. Like the big Coco said:
“A woman can be adorable when she is 19, gorgeous at 29, but only at 39 she is absolutely irresistible. And older than 39 will not be a woman who was once irresistible!”
Mais non, I am not 39. Not yet 😉 but it definitely helps looking ahead in a positive way and face the future with a strong mind and good vibes. I am looking forward to every single second of the new year of my life!
With this in mind: stay always positive and remember, everything happens for a reason. We only understand life backwards.
Have a wonderful Sunday and enjoy the sweet weather,
