I gave up so many things that are not necessary, not because I am not strong enough.
Hey Everybody, I am back from the lazy couch I called 'no inspiration weeks'. Here is my post from The Netherlands. More are coming from my Solo in Europe.
There are few things that makes you smiles, you keep in your mind, playing on repeat. The cure of any kind of sickness you feel. That loved ones, so far away, but they will always be the first ones who are real when you closes your eyes before the 'a.m' hours. Then, there comes few things that you are grateful of but you might have never spoken of them.
Yes, I love my dad. We are two identical souls live in separate bodies. I never want to win anything over you dad, nor I would like to be less wiser than you. You are the one that I look up to. You forgive more people than I do. Thus, that makes you a better person than I am. Sorry that I do solo again, I could not help it, wondering by myself is somewhat a drug for me. I want to see, experience, and learn more things before I can call a city as my final destination to settle down.
Anyway, I decided to pack 6 tops, 3 pants, and 2 dresses, and wandered solo again, for 2 weeks. To the Netherlands, to meet a lovely cousin of mine. Next to Lisbon, because of the charm of the city, and met a new amazing friend. Then, final stop, Greece, to meet my best friend.
First stop in the Netherlands was Eindhoven, that is where my cousin lives. Next, day trip to Antwerp, Belgium, and Amsterdam, Den Haag, and Zaan Dam. We have spent amazing times and catch ups. Thank you so much ce Finnie to show me the best of the Netherlands and Belgium, and for those afternoon we exchanged stories of how we are grateful of our moments and of those people in our lives.
Solo, You find yourself silent, because you are the observer. Your eyes stare to every directions, not because you are confused. You carry your loads (not only luggages) everywhere, and find that it was not such a trouble, instead, it gets lighter and lighter.
Honestly, when I walk solo, I began to realise of how much loads that I carried, and are not even essential to my life. I gave up so many things that are not necessary, not because I am not strong enough. But hey, giving up things do not always mean that you are losing. the act itself simplifies your life and broader your mind.
