What do you do when you’re not writing? How do you reset and return to this dashboard, refreshed? What do you need in your day-to-day life to maintain balance?
For those who are familiar already with my blog, you know what keeps me busy when I’m not writing (if that’s possible because whatever I do I always write in my head) for those who visit for the first time you can check my about page. It is crammed with images of my hobbies.
Aside from those pastimes I love travelling. In my photography blog (which is still on the drawing board) I put a quote that goes like this:
“The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”
I believe in it. My upbringing, my background and my nature made me a wanderlust; a gypsy, a nomad by heart. But I don’t travel as much as I used to like I don’t hike 25 kilometers per day anymore. The reason why you can read here. The same reason why I am not able to draw or paint these days.
So, what do I do when I’m not writing? Keeping busy with design. Interior design, landscaping, renovating period houses, giving color and style advice, coaching… watching people, observing them, absorbing life and learning. Talking to strangers, hear what they have to say, smiling to babies and old people; trying to live in general.
What about you?
