seven

  

most seven year olds start to think about the future and understand their place in the world they live in. for this seven year old it has been a tumultuous journey growing up, pulling around baggage that refused to go missing. as she got older she finally opened it up, gave up a whole lot she had been hoarding so that she didn’t have to keep paying fines, and started to pack it with things that filled up without taking up much weight. but there was that deadweight that couldn’t be thrown away. it anchored her to a home she wondered about for the past seven years – a home she got lost and couldn’t find her way back to. and she carried that baggage with her no matter which corner of the world she wandered to.

at seven she’s still wandering/wondering how to get home.

Happy Valentines’ Day.

休息

誰說休息,一定是為了要走更長遠的路?

有時候休息,可以只是因為「想要休息」。

在許多歐洲人們的心中,能夠有足夠(甚至是過多)的時間休息,是一種理所當然。而步調較快的亞洲人則不然。你步調太慢,別人總會說你懶。

對於休息感到自在,不會有罪惡感,其實是種莫大且踏實的幸福。

「好好休息」

不急,有時候退一步,才是真正地向前進。
