I stumbled upon this quote last week and it reminded me of what is truly import: Me! My wishes and dreams. Taking breaks in order to protect my happiness and sanity. I am a sensitive person, I want to please everyone, I can’t always define my wishes and dreams and find myself getting pulled in a swirl of undefined plans.
As I have mentioned here my brother is in town and that is the perfect opportunity for me to take some vacation days. I can’t deny that writing my thesis was a busy and exhausting time and I can’t deny either, that I am a little afraid of what’s to come with my exams in fall. I think it is super important to fill up my energy levels in order to start preparing for my exams in a “healthy” way – aka with energy and no stress. And that is exactly what I am doing right now!
Today we already went on a 5-hour hike threw the Blackforest – see here ! Nothing beats hiking with my big brother to clear my mind. Hiking, good talks, tasty sandwiches, amazing nature, reflecting the past, looking forward to the future. That is exactly what I needed. And tomorrow? We are off to Basel. I love to explore new cities. And on Saturday? We are off to Strasbourg! Oh, I am super excited. Two days, two cities, two countries.
So what do you guys do to fill up your energy levels? And can you guess where I live?
Oh, I can already smell the diner. After five hours of hiking I am super hungry : )
