I’ll tell you a thing about living out of a backpack, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
the novelty of owning so little wears off real quick when you haven’t washed your clothes in a week and you have to warn everyone you meet to go in for the hug at THEIR OWN RISK.
This has a lot to do with the breakfast I had this morning because another thing that wears off is the suspense of not knowing what you’ll have to eat once you wake up with no kitchen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The novelty of anything, will, unfortunately, always wear off. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Meaning, relying on anything else but yourself for happiness is always a fickle thing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And I already knew this, but there are always different levels of knowing.
And maybe now I finally know, *know* this. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I can be wherever,
Be with whomever, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And still, everything I’ve left unresolved will remain unresolved and will most likely follow me around. It’s just a matter of time as to when I’ll notice.
Yes, make sure your environment is one you enjoy.
Make sure the food you eat regularly is food you like and makes you feel good.
Make sure the people you surround yourself with are supportive, loving and very importantly, make you laugh. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But more so, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Make sure this isn’t all you cling to. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A different partner, country, food, routine, hobby helps but isn’t always the solution to the problem.
The novelty wears off, your brain gets used to everything, (even the most exciting and distracting of things) and therefore, once again, you’re left with yourself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So maybe spend some time tending to that and it won’t be a bad thing 🍭
Happy to be here 🎯 (in a general sense you know - existing, alive, human, witnessing stuff like this view) (but also in a specific sense - home, with wonderful people, feeling loved, witnessing stuff like this view). Anyways, in the US, heading to Peru in the morning ☺️🐑🇵🇪 @travels.of.hanelle ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
