Hello my lovelies, 🙂
Happy New Year!
I hope you all had a great time even when the time isn’t the easiest one.
I have a lot of stationery on my shelves, in my cupboards and boxes which we haven’t talked about yet. I have many products which I would like to discuss with you and test them together with you.
In the next months I will open up my cupboard and we will check out my fountain pen collections, colouring pencils and pens, and the wonderful travelling moments across Japan.
After the lockdown, I will do some daily trips and I will write about those too.
Changes is a huge word and I know that changes can be scary. Don’t worry! I will continue writing about everything around stationery, writing and travelling. The blog won’t get trashy or gossipy 😀 That isn’t my style.
This year I will start some adventures and I think adventure is a better word than change because I would like to take you on a journey with me. We will explore new worlds and… oh wait that sounds a little bit like Star Trek 😀 (Oh gosh did I reveal myself as a Star Trek fan? … in case I did, than yes I am one 🙂 )
Nevertheless, the point is that as a child we all love to go on an exciting journey and our creativity wandering though our brains. We created stories, settings and it felt real.
As we grow up, the word „change“ has something negative about it. I know a lot of adults/grown ups who are struggling with changes in their personal or working life. They can’t raise the energy for such adjustments and some people give up even before they started.
I would like share my spirit/motivation, or whatever you would like to call it, with you. I think that we grown ups have still our inner child with us and we just forget to listen to this little creative voice in ourselves. If you think you couldn’t be brave/fit/energetic or even you wouldn’t have the time for some changes, I think we can do it. I think we can face changes. My inner child loves a good adventure. My adult me is sceptical about changes but I do them.
There was one moment in my life where I had to cope with a change which hit me really hard. I sat down with my cup of tea and I asked myself what the 5 year old girl would do. I thought about it a very long time and I asked myself what could happen? Is it the end of the world? Can I change it in a specific way so that it is positive for me? Yes, I did it. I accepted the change and then I went out on my adventure.
So after all these words, I will take you on this adventure and I can tell you, I will have a lot of highlights and there will be moments where I will make mistakes. The question will be if I learn from them.
Even something like a new design of my blog can be an adventure. 🙂
We are still on vacation this week. I am still enjoying my free time. I take Maya out for long walks and I am thinking about the books which I would like to read. I love the time outside even if it is stormy, rainy or both together.
My journal for this year is finally ready. It took me quite a while to get it completed. Normally, I have a Leuchtturm1917 in A5 seize but this year I decided to take a Travelers Notebook. We will see how it works for me. I will give you an update. 🙂
Wisdom of the day: Let’s go out for some adventures! Have fun in 2021!
Love to you all and stay healthy,
