It’s the end of the year…and yeah, what a year this has been. I am not only talking about Covid-19, first of all it was my sabbatical, my gap year (…well, it was some kind of gap year for everyone of us, i assume, lol). It was a time to recharge my batteries, my emotional and spiritual ones, to heal and to just take a break from the daily grind and routine. Above and beyond i found inner freedom.
Not everything has worked out as i supposed to be, but i guess that is life. If there’s one thing I’ve learned this year, it might be that you can’t plan anything down to the last detail and that you’re always smarter afterwards. But yes, these are not really new findings either.
Those of you who follow me on Instagram (i’m not sure if there is such kind of audience here, haha) might have noticed that i posted a pic of my Southeast Asia trip each day in november. That was actually my “shutdown-project”, posting one pic a day during the whole month. It was much more exhausting than i thought it would be and i felt instantly sorry for all those influencers who constantly have to come up with new content… omg!
I edited the pictures with some kind of retro-filter and found that they gave off an interesting new look. And when I looked at the timeline as a whole, I found it to be a nice kaleidoscope of the whole journey. And that’s why i wanna post some of these “reflections” here as well…
Certainly I will live on this trip for a long time, but somehow I have the feeling that it is time for something different, something new now. It will have an effect on this blog, too… maybe thematically less travel and more thoughts, LOL. We will see.
When I let go of what I am, I become what I could be.
When I let go of what I have, I get what I need.Laotse
