On rainy days like today I enjoy staying at home, leaning at my kitchen window and beholding the beautiful view while the rain is dripping gently on the roof top, giving every surface a glance, so that it appears in even more brighter colors. I tend to forget in such a moment all the things causing me stress and sorrows. Instead of that I start to reminisce about the things that are making me feel happy and complete!
The last months had been definitely not very kind to me. I had to go through financial constraints, health problems and distrust between me and my colleagues in the office. Of course I kept myself focused on my own life and my plans, but sometimes you get the feeling in life like everyone is simply up to make your life more difficult. These are the moments when you can regain strength by relying on your loved ones and to remember that life is about yourself and what you make of it, not about what you get!
My life is not for a long time yet at the point I wished it would be, but I still have the chance and the free choice to change my life, to approach my dreams and my visions! I have a loving partner who loves me back and whom I trust completely. This is my strong basis in life. With him I want to find the right place to live and to be happy. The right place to have a cosy little home and to do a job that satisfies us. I remember all these things when looking out my kitchen window and forgetting about the other things in life that are not really important to take them too much to heart. It will be a long way to get there, but life is about finding new goals and overcoming new challenges. I already know what I want in life and that is the best start!
Tomorrow the sun may come out again for me, but for all the other rainy days I keep leaning at my kitchen window and beholding the beautiful view.
