I want some purpose

Keywords: {0}

to be in touch with nature, to do things much more traditionally. To ditch the TV, the busy traffic, social media, and to get out there and do things. My yearning for more, something actually meaningful is becoming overwhelming and actually frustratingly depressing. The more time that goes by that I’m deprived of my natural gender role, the more my natural instincts are kicking in, the more frustrated and discontent I am becoming with life, the less bright I see my future becoming. I know, such a morbid post, but I’m just bluntly and simply expressing my thoughts and feelings as a woman in my circumstances and in this day and age, I know I am not alone.

When the rest of my life was falling apart, when I was lonely and afraid, depressed and self-destructive, I had dinner

A different way of looking at “the used life,” perhaps. As a means of using our capacities to create a firm foundation. As a way of coping with stress, overwhelm, and crisis. We’ve all got to have something—some series of behaviors, rituals, activities, skills—that make life worth living when it doesn’t feel that way. As for me, mine are rooted in the stuff of daily life. I have discovered that, no matter where I am, as long as I am making use of the present—by being creative, by using my body, by engaging my senses to the fullest and fulfilling the single most important responsibility I have to myself—to be alive— the miraculous is always in my backyard. It’s in my neighbors, my friends and loved ones. It’s in the birds and the butterflies. And, of course, it’s always in my kitchen. It’s dinner, friends. It’s dinner.

I want to create valuable and meaningful change and I want my life to have meant something to the people that matter to me

Keywords: lifestyle , mental health , self love , thoughts , wellbeing , connections , happiness , relationships , strong relationships

The key component to a happy life is ‘connection’ through valuable and meaningful relationships with the significant people in our lives. It’s really that simple.

I want to say what the other person needs me to say in that moment

I have often thought about my communication with others, verbally and non-verbally. When I smiled at the person in the grocery store, how did it effect that person? What was on their minds at that time when a stranger smiled a goofy smile at them? Or when I engage in conversation with one person, am I giving good advice, helping, or would just listening be the better action in this moment? I am often reminded of the finality of the end of our lives. With having cancer, that threat of an earlier death than I had anticipated has brought me to a place in my life where I am reflecting on my impact in society.

My hiatus helped me see how much I’ve come to love doing art, how much I want to put paint on my canvases, how much I want to play with new techniques and learn new ways to express myself through this wondrous thing we call art

Keywords: art studio , miscellaneous , watercolor , art , creativity , hiatus

We may never agree on what is art, what isn’t art, or why it matters. But as artists, I think we can definitely agree that art is meaningful to us. We all need art in our life. Sometimes we may need to step away for one reason or another, but we’ll always come back to art.

I’m starting to think I want to have a daughter someday

Keywords: {0}

Somehow this reminds me of our connection to God, whoever that may be. I nurture my puppy, and she nurtures me. God nurtures me, so I can nurture my puppy. And I please God by doing good deeds and loving others. Love is what connects us all to one another, and love is that feeling of happiness when you discover how much that person or dog’s existence means to you. Someone once explained to me: perfect circles don’t exist in nature, but we know that they exist. In the same way, there must be a perfect version of a person, and the journey of becoming closer to that person, or God, is what life is for. That made a lot of sense to me.

Maybe I am not getting anywhere because I haven’t been knowing myself completely

I read a lot of books hoping to find the meaning of life, hoping to find myself in there somewhere. I read every book I thought could give me the idea of how to live life, how to be ME. But not a single book could make me understand how to get where I am supposed to be when I have not the tiniest bit of idea where I want to be in life.

I want my writing to have substance and be meaningful, and I want to discuss the array of intriguing thoughts which run around my mind every day, but I must also remember that these can’t always be refined so fast

Keywords: intention , poland , polska , travel , visitpoland , writing

Some of these might take days or even months to process and put into coherent words. I’m still learning and making up my mind about so many things. So, rather than forcing myself to write something that isn’t ready, I figured I’ll finally pay attention to the one idea that has come to mind time and time again. Afterall, any writing serves growth. So, I have roughly two and a half months left in Poland before I leave, which means I want to visit as many places as possible before then. What better way to keep myself accountable than a list. Logistically, I have roughly 10 weekends left for visiting places such as these:
