Honestly, I don’t remember where any of these quotes first came from, but right now, they are reaching you from my little notebook of quotes.
◦ We all come from the sea, but we are not all of the sea. We, children of tides, must return to it again and again.
◦ Just because you feel it, doesn’t mean it’s there. Just because you’re scared, doesn’t mean fear exists.
To give some brief information: The movement of Minimalism started in New York, late 1960s, to present itself as “cool over dramatic” in many art forms. Minimalist artists and scholars believed that with fewer material and fewer possession, comes the limpid and the clearer life.
For what they have taught me, this post is dedicated to my mom&dad.
After spending the first 8 years of their marriage traveling all around the world, these two individuals decided to have me. Obviously, I changed their style of living in an enormous way. Apart from all the huge changes a baby brings; at first, you would think that with me, they wouldn’t be able to travel as much as they once did. But you are wrong. They had me in an airplane going to Switzerland when I was just 3 months old. However, I like to believe that with me coming along, they learned to live a life that was totally different to their previous lives and that made them see everything in a whole new way.
You know those places that make you feel out of time & place, right? The ones that make you feel comfortable, relaxed and peaceful outside your own home.
The word lunatic comes from its Latin origins lunaticus which meant either “moonstruck” or “of the moon”. The term was first used to refer to those who had epilepsy and madness since they were thought to be caused by the moon, and to describe the mentally ill as dangerous (which was irrational, and will be another post’s topic). Then, astrologers used the term to mention neurological and psychological diseases. It is also known that Aristotle and some other philosophers whom I can’t name right now, thought that full moon and its light were connected to bipolar disorders. The light caused by full moon was seen as the main cause for people’s sleep deprivations.
I obviously use social media constantly, even to share this post. It is beneficial in many ways, joyful and fun to see a hint of other people’s lives, I’ll accept that. But everything is fun and games until you start to compare your life with those pretty images. Nowadays, we stopped using social media to socialise, we use it to lurk into people’s lives, and get jealous. Social media have become something about sociology and psychology, more than technology. If you are one of those few people who are fully satisfied with your life and do not need to compare yourself to others, I am really happy for you. But I’m not like that. keep going
Drink more water. Seriously. I can’t stress this enough but you should be drinking lots and lots of water.
Just like you, I heard about the benefits of drinking water for my whole life. But the thing is, only after so many years of not caring about those, I now am aware how much it truly can benefit you. For a couple of weeks now, I’ve been tracking my water intake and try to drink as much as I can. And it seriously helped, with any and every little thing.
