I had some random thoughts, floating around in that head of mine, on things I wanted to sit down and write posts about. And then I thought, why not just gather all my rather random things in one structured blogpost? So I did. Here are five great things from my life lately, that I felt like sharing with you.
I'M FEELING EXCITEMENT FOR AUTUMN. While others sit and mope about the fact the summer is coming to an end, here I am - quite happy about it. Since we don't really get "proper" summers here in Sweden, I don't mind when it's actually over (harsh truth). Autumn is my favourite time of year. I love the crisp air, the changing colours in nature and the warm sunlight. We have a few weeks of this beautifulness every year before the darkness of winter comes rolling around, unwanted. I'm planning to enjoy these few weeks to the max.
PLANNING FUTURE TRAVELS. I love exploring, and on my travel wish list right now are Budapest, Prague, Copenhagen and Dublin. I feel like I want to travel more within Europe in the near future, there is so much that I yet have to see and explore on our lovely little continent. We have so much history, beautiful architecture and even more amazing food here - that I cannot wait to experience. *hittng up Skyscanner*
Summer's over, bare legs & summer dresses are now a distant memory - but I'm feeling excited for autumn!
DECLUTTERING. I am one stuff owning human (first world problems, I am very aware of that), and that's something I'm trying to change. Not that I won't allow myself to own things, just that I tend to cling onto things that can more be referred to as "stuff". Starting the process of owning less isn't easy though. Emptying all of your drawers and cupboards makes a terrible mess. I tried that method and realised that well... not even the most "let's do this" Spotify playlist gave me the energy to handle all of it at once. Instead, I tried to go through my belongings in sections and to scale down. Separating what I think I need to what I actually need, has totally made a difference in how I feel in my own space. Just knowing I'm, bit by bit, minimising the random "stuff" I have shoved down my drawers and never ever use but feel like I "might find a use for some day" is such a relief. A tip on where to get started? The book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. And, speaking of books...
