Deception

Life is hard sometimes. The other day I was daydreaming, finding a way to escape reality for a while, when I spotted a tiny spider working on a web. It was carefully creating this perfect and fragile little spider web, putting so much love and dedication into a home for one. I was so captivated by its beauty and patience. In that moment it was just me and that little spider in the world. The spider devising a place to call home, and me the onlooker to this beautiful creation.

Just as I was considering this and taking it all in…a figure behind me took notice of us sharing this moment and with one swift movement ripped the spider’s little web in half. I was devastated. How heartless. The lesson to learn here is that there’s monsters everywhere…even disguised as friends.

Credit to Georgina for being the figure that broke a happy home.

Make your own path

There’s a quote I come across a lot when looking at traveling, it goes…

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail – Ralph Waldorf Emerson 

I find this quote really inspiring both for travelling and home life. For travelling I like the idea of going where no one else has gone before me. Like a astronaut exploring space. In my eyes why should we do the same thing day in day out, when we have the whole world at our feet to explore and just live. I think that’s one of the reasons why I fell in love with Iceland so easily, it gave me a sense of freedom to discover something new and I love that.

On the other hand though like I said I can also apply it to home life. Like I’ve mentioned before I’ve never really been career minded, but maybe that’s just because I haven’t seen the right career choice. Maybe if I created my own career (i.e make my own path) then I’d be career driven. It’s just finding something I really love doing, something that I’m unbelievably passionate about. Anyway I’ll keep wandering the earth, trying to find out how to create my own path. One day.
