Like walking through a painting

The furthest I can get in fifteen minutes without missing my second train to work. As a kid & teen I used to hate this train station because it’s almost in the middle of nowhere and never got the idea I don’t have to stand around there to wait. Once, a very freezing cold winter in the early 2000s my Nokia 3310 (remember this indestructible phone?) got so cold, It took a few hours of warming up to start working again.

And who would have thought, that these short walks before work would become like a little ritual that keeps me so much more sane and happy this year.

Switching off the Sunday Alarm

I’ve been pretty hard on myself the past few years. Always pushing forward and practicing self-discipline.

It makes me feel happy, balanced and like I’m not wasting the time I’ve got here on this wonderful miracle we call our planet – there’s just one downside: there’s no time to recharge. It leaves me tired and in a state of constant light burnout

So, last sunday I decided to start a small compromise and not get up at 5am (or earlier) once a week. Let’s call it a self-discipline cheat day :-)
