Saying bye.

Wuscheli and my finger

It’s refreshing to really say bye. In my opinion it’s important.

Everytime we go to bed, we don’t know if we ever wake up again. Everytime we meet somebody we meet them for the last time, because we are changing.

It’s scary so better use your chance and say bye and embrace each other giving yourself and the other the chance to change.

On a sidenote that’s also why it’s important to really say hello.

– in the picture you see Wuscheli our 20 year old cat. 20 years ago I was visiting Wuscheli’s mother, Wuscheli and Tigi + 2 of her siblings every day after school. I was another person back then. But this younger self is still within me, and I’m still deeply fascinated by cats. As I’m going away for most likely a half year, I said bye. Wuscheli’s stance is getting weaker,, she still purrs and does all in all very well for her age.

Is it the final time we see each other? Yes maybe.

But coming back to make my point: shouldn’t we treat more of these kind of events as ‘yes maybe it’s the final time?’

Two more nights until camino

On the way to meet one of my old friends before going on the camino.

Hi! This blog will help me to give you further informations about the journey on the camino de santiago. Starting in Constance this wednesday, going all the way down to Santiago de Compostela.

I’m freaking nervous, I always tell people, if you are nervous about something, then there is meaning behind what you are doing. It’s important.

Why is nervousness a pointer to meaning?

Some part of my life I didn’t manage to get nervous anymore from things I used to get nervous from. So I’ve become used to it. It’s nothing special anymore or in other words, it wasn’t aligned with goals in my life. (We are not talking here about blatantly stupid things that make you nervous, but things that are important which make you nervous.)

What does it mean if you are not nervous?

Nervousness is one hell of energy source, if you don’t have it in your life, then you occasionally should search for some kind of thing that makes you nervous. In other words leaving your comfort zone. Some examples might be playing theatre, public speaking, writing, taking a silly picture/cold shower or going on the camino de santiago.
