Life lately


Dancing outside my comfort zone.
Reclaiming my body. Making peace with crying.
Walking long distances even when no one wants to walk with me.
Listening to music as a plant turns to the sun to grow and bloom.

    these are impressive words.
    But finding peace and do long walks with yourself can be a very good thing, don`t you think?

    1. They are :)
      Sometimes you wish you were not alone and sometimes my natural tendency is to close myself in my shell and stay still but lately i feel more confident to be outside and challenge myself!
      I spend a lot of my time alone and i love it but sometimes i feel lonely and that hurts but i am not letting that stop me.
      not now :)

  12. i have to agree with katie. i've been crying quite a lot these past few weeks and while it hurts it helps a lot, too.

    we need never be ashamed of our tears, for they are rain upon the blinding dust of earth, overlying our hard hearts.


    one day i'll visit porto and i'll join you in one of those long walks ♥

    1. it hurts but it helps to soothe the pain and to calm us down,i know - but sometimes my first feeling is still to keep it in...
      but as time goes by i am learning to let go of everyting in a more peaceful way*

  14. I used to not be able to cry when I was a teenager, now I'm easily moved, and I feel more comfortable because I think of it a bit as if a cleaning <3
