Uncovering the Key to Happiness


 

Hello my loves. I hope you still remember me. I haven't posted anything for such a long time.

And I would like to start by, not even apologising, but explaining this.
I want to explore the emotions I have been navigating recently and share my discoveries with you.

I felt like everything that i feel, that i write, that i think is not good enough to write here. Like everybody around me is more creative, has a more interesting life and posting anything here is just a waste of time. I also thought my English was not good enough. But all the comments and messages i got on Instagram (where i also wasn't as active as i was few weeks ago) surprised me. I've seen some people really like what i write, like my photos. And their kind and warm words made me feel longing for this whole "Internet world".

The next reason why i had little absence is the end of the school year. After holidays I'm going to a new school where i know almost nobody. Going to a new school is pretty exciting, especially for such a sociable human like me, but also really nostalgic. I have always dreamt about freedom, making decisions and being adult, but really becoming adult is something different. And to be honest i am scared. Excited, but scared too.

And I think the last reason is my school exchange to Ukraine and when students from Lviv came to us. Both exchanges were very emotional for me, specially this last one. Exchanges have been most beautiful things during those three years of "gimnazjum" (highschool). I fell in love with Ukraine and Ukrainians again.I felt I was with my best friends, meeting people from other countries, seeing another culture. And suddenly I lost it. I was sad, frustrated and even angry. For me it was impossible to write about good and  positive vibes when I wasn't feeling them.

It's unbelievable how I have changed during these three years. Honestly, I am proud of this. I think the biggest change is that I stopped waiting and running for happiness. I understood that the key to happiness is appreciation. Little and big things. Seeing beauty in as many things, humans, situations as possible. Doesn't matter if it's morning yoga or time with friends or a big trip abroad. Life is an amalgamation of better and worse moments. We couldn't appreciate light without dark. Being happy is creating beautiful moments. As many as possible

Appreciation. This is my key to happiness.

Love u,
Zuzia

This sunset,

this ground,

this old tree,

this is our home,

this is our Momma.

I believe that this Earth is holy, that this grass and these rocks are touched by God's hands, so they're perfect. It was perfect until day by day she started being destroyed. But she still needs us. We can still make something for her. And we should. We have to.

We have to protect her.

We have to care about her.

We have to be her guards.

We have to apologize to her for years of ignorance

and start rebuilding her and helping her return to balance.

We owe this to her.

So let's not waste time. let's do something.

Let's do something because in few years maybe we won't see rising sun behind the fog.

We won't hear the tweet of birds because we cut all trees.

This is our home.

Love you

Chaotic world

We live in a chaotic and inequitable world, where there are no rules.

Why are some people rich and others poor?

Why can some people live in peace and others have to clear off from their countries?

I'm not surprised people are giving up and stop believing in love and kindness. But we have to constantly fight. We have to send good deeds into this place. Our home.

Maybe nobody will see it, nobody will appreciate it. But our actions are somewhere in this chaos, because we are part of it. We are full of danger and vexation. But we are also full of love. Because I am love. You are love. WE are chaotic love.

Love you

These days, I see, we can't talk. The one thing we have is our phone or our computers or our tablets. We don't see each other. We have forgotten how to talk, in a way other than through messenger. And honestly I, too, have forgotten. 

The first thing I do after I come back from school is check my social media. I eat dinner, talk with my mum about school related stuff and go to my room. I close the door and don't come out until much later in the evening.

Lately i realised how long I haven't talk with my younger sister, how much I don't know about what she likes. The only moment that we are talking is when we are arguing.

But that's enough.

This year is going to be different. I want to talk with my sister for longer than 5 minutes a day.

I want to spend less time with my phone. Phones are such 'good'[ time wasters. I tell myself "only 10 minutes on Instagram" and suddenly those 10 minutes become half an hour.

So here's a reminder for today:

"Live your life, not the Internet's life"

Love you
