do not hesitate!

21 Feb

just a quick note about something i was thinking this morning.

friends: do not hesitate!


time is short! this is so true and that’s why i am asking you: what are you waiting for? what are we waiting for?

make this day something special, make everyday special!

i feel tired today. not very adventurous and sick of the grown-up stuff i have to deal with.

a friend of mine said to me today that i look sad. and i started wondering. am i sad? no, not at all!  that’s not the point. in fact, i feel very blessed with the friends i have, my fabulous job, the sky that i see every morning. nevertheless, the thing is… i need something more motivation these days than having my yummy detox juices twice a day.

so i was wondering: what should be my motivation?

LIFE! it’s as simple as that.

and that’s why i am encouraging you too:

don’t hesitate. do something different. make a change! get out of your routine.

tell someone today that you love to work with him/her or try something new today, even if it is just to walk the way home after work instead of taking the bus. you could also go and book a short trip to prague or another city you’ve never been to. go outside and blow some soap bubbles like teamgloria already did (the pustefix ones of course). ask a person out for a coffee. dare something! simply tell somebody you love him or her. and if you still have a grandma… please call her today!

    wunderbar und doch hilft das ‘neue’ nicht … es ist die kunst, mit dem alltag fertig zu werden, ohne das gefühl zu haben, dass man damit ‘fertig werden’ muss, sondern darin das glück zu finden – oder? hach, ich weiss nicht … aber ich fühle mit dir, denn ich fühle mich auch nicht grad himmelhochjauchzend …

      ich denke, es ist eine mischung aus beidem. manchmal muss man halt neue wege gehen (auch wenn es nur kleine veränderungen sind), um den zauber im alltag zu sehen. und das wieder führt zu einem leichteren “fertigwerden”…oder? eine theorie…
      ((ich glaube, letztendlich fehlt uns allen einfach nur sonne und vitamin d)) 🙂 dicken kuss zu dir*

    You are so amazing, Julia. And yes, you are completely right. Remi and I took off this morning for a walk in the country with the dogs. We ALL needed it so much! Totally improvised but that is often the best, no?

    Both of my Grandmas’s are gone but I love that you demanded this. Family, whether blood relatives or chosen, is so incredibly important.

    Looking forward to reading your answers to tg’s questions!

    Gros Bisous and thank you for making me dream…

      my dear heather, thank you so much.
      it makes my very happy that i made you dream 🙂
      my grandmas are gone too… and i know the feeling of regretting not to have called once more or written just one more letter.
      we have to show the precious people around us just how we feel about them. and not taking for granted that they know. and i totally AGREE that it is not about blood relatives but any people we feel close to.
      have a wonderful evening, dear heather ❤

    Another great post, Julia ! and of course I can’t agree more. A lot of people say they’re unhappy, but they do nothing to make it change…Sad for them. Once you realise that life is (or might be) short, there’s no time lo lose. Live, love and enjoy every little moments ! That’s what I’m doing, and I’m happy 🙂
    Have a great weekend !

      thank you so much, gianfranco*
      i am so with you on your thoughts. and although it’s not always easy- fortunately, we live in a society where we always have a choice and can make our own decisions.
      you have a great weekend too*
