brave enough to feel

Society has a name for everything.

Dictionary upon dictionary full of terms defining other terms explaining what exactly something is or means.
There is a never ending craving for definitions and regulations, for statistics and rules for how something is supposed to be or what a certain word has to mean.

And through this, society triggers a loss of horrific extent: We lose the things that can’t be defined. If what can’t be told in words is not of worth then society has no worth at all.

An acceptance has to start growing that there are things between heaven and earth, feelings, moments, emotions – that can not be simply defined, that can not be put into words and that can not be found in a dictionary.

Some things simply are what they are, you have to experience them yourself in order to understand what they truly mean.

The most important things in life are not defined in dictionarys, they grow their meaning and their significance in the hearts of those who are brave enough to close the books – and feel.

Writing slumps

It happened: Everything was just fine and then boom there it was – my writing slump.

I knew this could happen to the reading part of me, but to the writing part? I didn’t know that. I suddenly felt like I ran out of things to write about. Like every time I started to write something it would just be nonsense, unimportant or simply not authentic. So I thought I would just give it a break and sooner or later it will all go back to normal. Here I am four weeks later and it’s still the same. But here I am: writing.

I came to the realization, that next to all the things that are going on in our lives, it is easy to cut of the things that we do just for fun, the things we do by choice. When life happens, those things are left out and its hard to include them in your daily life again once they have been excluded. So here I am writing. Still not entirely inspired but I made a choice: I chose to write even if I don’t feel like it. Because I realized: if I don’t write I’m ignoring a piece of who I am and what makes me happy.

So to who ever is reading this right now, who can relate – here is my message:

Do what you love and what you’re good at, even if you don’t feel like it, because it makes you who you are! And don’t worry, I’m pretty sure it happens to all of us!

Daily life – love and hate

We live day after day
All days the same
And we really want to change that
But who really does it and who really wants to?

Have we started to like the hate about our everyday life?
Is the only reason for us to hate the daily routine, because everyone does so?

We say life sucks, but hey it is not that bad, actually it is pretty good
But it kind of became normal and ‘in’
to hate mondays
to hate your job or as a student to hate maths
to hate the cold
to love summer
to love fridays
to love puppies
… these are just a few examples
But our society has started to only allow a certain combination of likes and dislikes to be cool or comprehensible

Take advantage of the freedom you have and choose on your own!
What do you love?

About shallow conversations

When did people stop saying ,I like you’ or ,you’re awesome’ or just ,hey I think you look beautiful today’.
It’s like the voice of an entire generation just fell silent.
We are tought to say what is expected to be said and to keep the rest hidden behind a poker face not letting people know what we think, what we feel or what we have to say.
When did our society turn into a bunch of numb strangers exchanging hollow words?
Freedom to say what I feel and people who actually care – that’s what I wish for.
