So I haven’t posted in a while, my apologies! The last few days in Sydney have been just crazy. A severe storm rolled over the city and caused a lot of destruction and water damage and also left many households without power. What I’m trying to say is that the weather has been horrible and I have mostly been staying inside, which also means I didn’t continue the Carpe Diem project.
I realised that completing the challenge I set for myself was going to be hard with the weather conditions and the fact that I have quite a lot of things to sort out before I leave for Germany next Tuesday. Therefore I decided to end the challenge early. I had so much fun in the last three weeks and am glad I came up with this idea to really make the most of my last few weeks here in Sydney. I have realised that it is simply impossible to do something awesome and exciting every day of your life. Some days might not be happy days, and that’s okay. If, theoretical, every day of your life would hold another adventure, something amazing and new, now would that not only be extremely exhausting? It would definitely be a very restless life. After trying to do just that, living every day to the fullest, I have come to realise that happiness often lies in the simple, small things in life. I love my life and I loved to just do nothing for the two worst days of the storm and just lie in bed until midday with Ben, cuddle, talk and have a Star Wars marathon. I am living life to the fullest, but that doesn’t have to mean to do crazy things like skydiving, white water rafting and bungee jumping every day. I am glad to have set this challenge for myself, for I have realised what the real meaning of ‘Carpe Diem’ is.
