taking stock

I found this beautiful post at Pip's blog and thought it would be a good idea for me to reflect on life once in awhile. I rarely do such things. Most of the times I am afraid I would dissapoint myself by understanding how unexcited my life seems at times. But you know what - this is still my life and I only live it once. So I am trying to teach myself to love little things around me.

Photos from my Instagram: sasha_zeen

making: plans for the future.
cooking: macaroni and cheese over and over again. I need to stop.
drinking: green tea. Always.
reading: young adult literature. This is my guilty pleasure and an embarassing secret I never tell to anyone.
wanting: to find my place on this planet. 
looking: forward to wearing my white keds. It's been cold and rainly lately, so I kept them safe in the closet.
playing: Solo. Love this card game. (emm, it's the same as the Uno one. Just different name)
wasting: time.  Much more time than it would be wise to waste. In need of changes.
sewing: a hole in my cute sock. Apparently, my new cute boots tear my cute socks. It sucks.
wishing: for strong will to make bold decisions in life.
enjoying: morning hours in a sunlit emprty appartment. Always loved being home alone.
waiting: for the meeting with my friend who has lived in Brazil for the last couple of years. Now she came to visit!
liking: being woke up by sun rays into my window. 
wondering: where life will take me.
loving: nights in, watching movies, playing board games, and drinking tea. I am boring.
hoping: to find my calling soon. I get frustrated when I cannot choose between multiple passions of mine. There are so many things I like to do, but I feel like I finally need to choose one main big thing and be very good at it.
marveling: at blooming apricots. They have my favorite blossoms - reddish pink.
needing: to make a healthy diet for spring season,
smelling: the parfume I had as a teenager and recently was given again as a gift. So many memories!
wearing: ankle boots. I have no idea why I shied away from this trend for so long. But I got a pair last month and have been loving them since.
following: my passhion for photography more often. I am still searching for the genre I love the most.
noticing: how nature gets more alive with each sunny day.
knowing: that I have to make some important decisions very soon.
thinking: i have to cook more complicated dishes sometimes. Afterall, I love cooking.
bookmarking: lifestyle bloggers.
opening: the windows.
giggling: all the time.
feeling: anxious.
