There comes a moment in life when you feel you are tired and you feel like giving up everything, like every piece of your body is aching and you want nothing more than staying in bed and looking at the rain poring outside.
This is something that happened to me lately. I got so caught up in the daily activities that I almost forgot who I am, and this got me to being exhausted and having no mood for anything. Always caught up in deadlines and responsibilities, I almost forgot that I have a life that is beautiful and is worth living.
This way, I almost decided giving up blogging, deleting my site and just making sure that I go on with having the same busy life I had until now.
Now don’t get me wrong, it is a beautiful life as my work is something that I enjoy, love and that makes me feel good. But it is not everything I wanted. Reading is part of me, part of my soul and my identity. And even if I do not have time to write as often as before, I want to keep on writing. First of all because I like writing and finding hidden meanings in the books I read, and second of all, because it is nice to see the way you were thinking and feeling a book years ago, seeing the way you developed and grew from a literature perspective. It is like looking at the pictures from when you were a child. You start becoming nostalgic and realise all the great things that you accomplished over the course of your life.
This will not be a long article, but only one in which I want to thank you all for being here with me, for encourage me to go on. Your kind words are the only ones that got me to remember why I got here in the first place and why I created the blog.
Just remember to never give up on your dreams and always follow your passions. It is what we are left at the end of our lives. Not how much did we work, not how many projects have we accomplished at work. Our passions are the ones defining us, identifying us and making us feel alive.
And last but not least, don’t forget to smile from time to time.
