First of all I want to thank everyone who has subscribed to my little blog. I have now reached 105 followers and 4500 views which may not seem like a lot, but for me it does make all the difference.
About a month ago I celebrated my 26 bday which for me , was a symbolic moment at the very least. It meant that I was now on the path toward my 3os and so, becoming a woman. I know, I know, being 30 doesn’t make you a woman automatically, but it does bring life into perspective.
I was talking to some friends of mine the other day and they mentioned that I have changed; that I am more outspoken now, and have an air of ”Je m’en fiche’ and I must admit, that I have also noticed that in myself.
As time passes, you start to realise that unless you take ownership of your own life, you cannot blame others for the events which affect you.
So, with all this in mind, I decided that 2016 was not going to be such a disastrous year after all. I have cut my credit cards in half and seriously making an effort to reduce my debts, I have stopped pretending to care for certain friendships, and to focus on myself more. You can accuse me of being selfish and so be it!
As part of growing up and not caring anymore, I have decided to finally spend more time doing the things I enjoy but never have the time to do so. That means visiting more museums, taking more pictures and returning to an old love: filming and animation.
While in high school, I took some stop-motion animation classes and it was one of the best experiences in life I have had. I loved the creative process and how a series of continuous pictures ended up telling a story. I am currently working on a very small project which may take months to see the light of day but that doesn’t bother me; I am finally taking control of my time now and that is all that matters.
What are you doing to claiming your ‘me’ back?
