Lazy summer day hangups
While spending lazy days both at home and at the summer cabin I’ve really come to find new patterns and sources of joy. I seem to be the type who gets hangups on specific things. I listen to one song for a week until I’m over it and move on to the next one. This behavior applies to many things. My current hangups are listed below. Do we have anything in common?
I always prefer espresso coffee over filtered coffee. But all of a sudden I’ve found my way back to seeing the charm in listening to the sound of coffee hitting the pan as well as the less piquant taste of filtered coffee.
I try to walk as much as possible. When I have the opportunity to walk all by myself I like to listen music. This time I’ve fallen in love with french love songs. Pretty much anything I find on Spotify will do. At least until I begin my beginners course in french later this year.
Body milk from Dr. Hauschka. I can’t get enough of this vitalizing body milk with the scent of fresh lemon and lemongrass. It’s 100% organic and the formula is soft and light. Additionally, it keeps the mosquitos away due to lemon.
Lately, I’ve noticed myself taking my favorite pieces of clothing to get altered. It is incredible what a little nip and tuck here and there can do. Maybe this behavior has to do something with my new way of thinking. Unless I’m completely satisfied, go do something about it.
Remember when I kind of made a new years resolution about flossing more frequently? Finally I made a promise I’ve been able to keep up this long. I floss at least once a day, and that is something I’m really proud of. It has almost become a new pattern as important and self-evident as brushing my teeth.
Jump. One thing I’m really bad at is taking risks. I get anxiety of the thought of trying new things and going outside my comfort zone. I need to change this little by little. No matter if it’s about jumping in the car and drive myself, cook a new dish I’ve never tried before, or say yes to a new project. I need to change my way of thinking. New things don’t have to be scary. Being afraid of failure is not an option anymore.
