Finally, it’s November already and I think at my age right now I prefer a soft rainy morning than a bright sunny one. Well, I am currently 21, so yeah, I guess it’s not about age, but it’s more like what kind of person are you? I always enjoy rainy days and cold weather, not just in real life, but in many forms. Subconsciously, my favorite movies and the kind of music that I always play are all about gloomy moods (example: OK Computer by Radiohead, The Paper Kites, and The Careful Ones) or movies that have a setting in an isolated place with a small population and cold weather.
Can you imagine living in a cabin that is so cozy and what you do is just doing some mundane stuff, like doing housework, grab some coffee in a coffee shop at the corner of the town where you know everybody when you enter it, because it’s just a small town with a small community, there are some beautiful old farm to table restaurant nearby that you can easily enter without any reservation and last, maybe doing some simple work that can provide your simple life.
City life is always amazing for me but isn’t fulfilling enough. I always feel like someday I will live in a small town somewhere with a small population and have a really good connection with people while doing what I love. Isn’t that the most important thing in life? Our connection with the people that we care about.
All I’m saying is that city life makes me feel disconnected from basic needs in life. I don’t even know what a natural thing anymore because it is just too hard to achieve in my daily life. I just realize what I really need is just to be and feel authentic.
I lost something in my life, and I think that’s the best thing that ever happened to me. I’m not going to try to explain what I lost because I believe it’s not about those things; rather, it’s about the realization that you don’t have to look after all of these things. That moment when you realize you’re not holding ourselves to what we have but to who we are.
I’m not writing something to give you more knowledge about anything. Instead, I’m writing this to make you feel about something. I hope this article can give a sense of contentment.
