My sister and I have been digging deep lately. Yesterday we were talking about simplicity and beauty. In my 20's I have come to realize that simple beautiful moments need to be enjoyed: good wine, good conversation, proper sleep, and good food are close to the top of that list.
My family and I are on vacation in Europe at the moment and my sister and I are trying to enjoy each moment. Every time I go to a new place I want to see and do everything. Try every trending topic of a place: restaurants, tourist attractions, etc but this time I want to enjoy getting to know my family more, do what the locals do, and most of all enjoy good wine, conversation, sleep, and food without the stress of wanting to take everything in. I want to look back on this trip and say I got the rest I needed, had fun, and learned something new about myself, my family, and the places I visited. Most of all, everyday, I want to see life in this way: each moment as a beautiful note added to my life song.
"And in the end I think I've learned the final lesson from my travels in time; and I've even gone one step further than my father did: The truth is I now don't travel back at all, not even for the day, I just try to live every day as if I've deliberately come back to this one day, to enjoy it, as if it was the full final day of my extraordinary, ordinary life," from the movie About Time.
