It’s a very exciting time of my life right now – the past 6 weeks have been a whirwind of activity with so many things going on at the same time. Things have kind of settled a little bit lately – but it’s going to be like the eye of the storm – a slight lull, before the storm hits.
I won’t share with you my exciting news yet, because I’m superstitious and I’m afraid to jinx it, but once it’s really firm I will be writing all about it.
It’s amazing how when you start having something to look forward to, there are so many other things you start looking forward to.
In no particular order, here’s my list of stuff that I want to do :
1. Learn Chinese
2. Learn French
3. Learn cars (I am a total car noob. I know nothing of cars. I cannot recognize an Audi when I see the Audi logo looking at me.)
4. Be more tech savvy. (I still don’t understand a dongle. I vaguely know what Spotify is. I just discovered Dropbox. And after 2 years of having an iPhone, I recently discovered I can link TWO of my Gmail accounts to my mail account!
5. Learn proper cooking (as in, actually follow a recipe. Right now, I like to put apples in my chicken consommé soup. I am the only person that seems to like this.)
I have been feeling stuck in a rut for quite a while, but now that things are moving again I feel so much more keen and so much more excited to learn more things and to vary my interests. Yes, I love clothes, shoes and makeup – but after a while, it’s all a little bit similar. Or at least, it certainly feels that way. This is why I want to learn new things.
Of course, I will bring in my favourite topic of all time – minimalism. Learning to let go a lot of stuff (physical and mental) has really helped me in opening my eyes to new things. To be honest with you, this wasn’t what I expected. I just thought I would have a tidier room. But I have found that once I started letting the old stuff go (I am a champion hoarder, I still keep my clothes from when I was 13), a lot of new things started coming in.
So, go on. Try letting something go. You may really be surprised what you let in then.
