Someone once told me that life is a bit like a game of dice in which we choose how we want to throw cubes. We can try to play according to accepted rules and throw our cubes in a specific field, or – knowing that it is really our only game – we can add dots where it’s necessary on the cubes and play according to your own rules.
A few years ago I played according to the adopted rules. I did what I was prepared for my whole life. Sometimes it went bad, sometimes good, but in the end I played the game on known rules. However, I missed quality in all of this. I felt that something did not suit me. I had the impression that I am not fulfilling myself, and that maybe – just maybe – I should try another profession. Maybe it was a career path – go further to study postgrads and eventually doctorates, or try to work. Maybe I have traveled too little; or maybe I just felt better than I really was? Maybe I saw myself as the person I wanted to be, but I never was like that? Maybe I believed that I could do anything, but I wanted anything else? I simply do not know, I can not determine what was driving me then. I know, however, that at some point I said to myself ‘sink or swim, lad’, and I threw myself into the new ocean. Hell that hurt. Everything was new: sleeping, eating, thinking; daily survival. But you know what? It worked out, although it is still not over. I live a new life, I play according to me-own rules. The cubes are rolling as I tell them, even if I would life if I say that it goes on parallel to the successes in the standard game. I still consider it my big success.
Follow me to see how my life goes on.
I will share a bit of minimalism, and a lot of joy. I will share my emotions, daily vibrations of my soul, beauty I’ve spotted in people and nature. There will be a bit of design here, a lot of philosophy, and not that much politics. I still believe in the idea of individualism, so I’ll try to bring it closer and expose that we are so much alike under the layer of thick skin, no matter where or who we are. I was born to be alive – I do not know about you, but I will try to use it in my game.
