"Push yourself out of your comfort zone on a regular basis"
....with this advice ended a long interview with Keri Smith I read this week
After days of turbulences and several nights of broken sleeps, we made a decision on how to go on. It´s time to make a change. Change can shake up your world for a while.
But now after much head spinning and balancing we are ready to leave our comfort zone - our airy, spacy home that it was for the last 6 years. Writing this I realize that this is not the whole truth, or not anymore. After many doubts and questions, fears, anger and sadness my opinion has changed completely. Better to say: pushing ourself out of our old comfort zone into a new, different and maybe even better one
I feel blessed to overthink and set priorities new
I feel blessed to get the chance for a new start in a new home
I feel blessed to discover living on the country side
I feel blessed to reduce the monthly rent we have to pay
I feel blessed to go on my artist journey although this means a smaller living- and working space
I feel blessed to being forced to let go, let go much of the stuff I horted in the last years and that I don´t really need
I feel blessed of looking from my small studio into a hughe garden with apple and cherry trees, flowers and raspberries (so does Friederike!, looking forward to brooding over new ideas in the shadow of the old apple tree while mowing the grass)......... very soon
