In October of 2018, my life changed quite a bit. My husband quit his job and the life that we had grown used to came to a sudden end. Like most people do, we pretended for a while that everything was okay, but honestly that was far from the truth. The initial shock, questions about our finances, and fear about where our future would take us kept us awake at night. Even though my husband started his new job relatively soon, I still feel the impact linger on our relationship, my family, and my outlook on life. After a long absence from this blog, I want to come back to my little online space and share with you what I’ve learned in this time of growth.
For most of my life I have tried to fit in. Which is kind of pointless, because the first thing everyone notices is my strong German accent. After that, many people make me feel as though they’ve labeled me as “Different. Do not talk to her.” Since last October I no longer try to win over the people who aren’t open to my uniqueness. All I want now is to love my family, friends and pets unconditionally and live my life with all its colors. I no longer want a blog that lacks my heart and my soul. I no longer want pictures that fit a mold that only exists in my imagination. I’m done doubting everything I do. I just want to feel my heart turn towards the sun. As of now I will start to collect happiness in my pictures and turn this blog into my path towards all the things I really love. And yes, German accent included!
