A new year brings all sort of feelings and thoughts: expectations, hopes, questions… and our impatient soul in search of answers will blur the enjoyment of the journey.
I once came across this quote from Rilke that reminds me to live “presently” my journey.
“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will find them gradually, without noticing it, and live along some distant day into the answer”.

In order to ive into the experience of the future.. we should let go of things that drag us and dont let us move on.
Inspired by the Goodbye List Miranda July did in her Assignment blog… here it goes..
Goodbye fear of success and fear to fail
Goodbye C & M
Goodbye tension, too much seriousness, control freak at work!!!
Goodbye not being constant
Goodbye family reproaches
What is your goodbye list?
c u 2morrow!
“Happiness is a state of mind or feeling characterized by contentment, love, satisfaction, pleasure, or joy.” Says Wikipedia..
What I like most about Happiness, is that one can not buy it, get it or grab it. And because it´s one of the most biased feelings, more than love, it’s even harder to define.
And still Happiness defines each one of us!
All I want for 2010 is Happiness!
And so I will do the most ridiculous list of things, small or big that make be happy.. (this doesn’t mean the list of things that make me MOST happy… I hate definitions like that…that you should know about me…). This is just a brainstorm list..
Hugs, hugs and more hugs
Keeping myself inspired
Saturday breakfast out, iPod, newspaper and design magazine.
Going back to bed to read after breakfast
Just washed smell linen & clothes
Quote: “Happiness is not a station where you arrive at, but a way of traveling” (Author: my sister, or so I believed since I was small)
What is your list? What do you want for 2010?
