Time just flies and when I think about what I’ve done this year, not much is coming straight to my mind…That why I decided to write down all my life updates from January to June 2018.
Last Monday was my birthday. I turned 34! I am no longer in my early thirties nor am I in my late thirties. I am just 34 years old, I love reading, writing, travelling, eating, meeting with friends, cooking, exercising (that’s new), laughing, people with a sense of humour, people who don’t take themselves seriously (what’s the point?) and I cannot live without keeping my notebook of wisdom alive every day! To celebrate my birthday, I decided to write down 34 life-changing lessons I learned for 34 years!
Some people would think ” well, quite pretentious to write about depression and explain it to others”, others would say ” I experienced exactly the same”. First, I would like to say that I am not a doctor, I am not a scientist, I am not a psychotherapist, I am not a psychologist. I am a person who did suffer from depression more than once but hope the last time will remain my last time. I decided to write and share my experience of depression inspired by the book of Matt Haig ”Reasons to stay alive”.
Last summer I was looking for travel books to buy and my eyes crossed an interesting title ”203 challenges – Travel the World. Explore Your Inner Self”. I opened the book and started to turn the pages. I was intrigued straight away and after 2 minutes I was seating at the coffee corner of the bookstore reading all the 203 challenges. That’s what I am calling love at first sight! “203 Travel Challenges” is an amazing book full of inspiration, ideas and challenges that will urge you to call your friends and embark on an unforgettable adventure. This book is not only for people who are all the time on the road but also for everyone who is willing to explore one’s inner adventurous self.
