Waiting for the last minute travel deal


We all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort. - Jesse Owens

So far in 2017, I have set everything right. Physical exercises, yoga, gym, less socialization, less drinking, started cooking, started saving money, healthy eating and drinking lemon/ginger root juice... all in order to take control of my own life. Now, I have to be steady and continue, I have to learn the art of steadiness.

Have you ever set a goal, achieved it, became content? And then what happened? Then went looking for the next thing. It’s fascinating how quickly our lives adjust to reaching a goal: We get what we want and, soon enough, start wondering for something else. We quickly adjust our fulfilled desires, constantly creating new ones.... we simply want more.

So it is really very simple. I don't want more. People who have one million dollars want ten, people who have a happy family want more happiness and people who have fame want more fame. People are desiring more and they are always frustrated and unhappy.

Rather than seeing this simple truth, deciding that this frustration and unhappiness are rather useless and simply changing to live the best life available to us, people grow angry, depressed and unsatisfied.

The truth is I have nothing to do. I have no ambition, nowhere to go, no one to be or become. I don't need to distract myself from anything or convince myself of anything. There is nothing that I think is true in this world, and I have no interest what others do. I have nothing to guide me except what I want in present moment. I don't seem to be too bored or unhappy about this life, so I guess it sounds strange.

I have worked very hard this week. It was so busy at work-place and at home I was making this new blog layout. It took me almost three days to make it as I wish. Right now I feel tired and my eyes are hurting me. I need to rest from the computer.

Weekend⭐. Today is Friday and I am happy. The Dreamer requested holiday from her job and we are waiting for confirmation before we book our vacation. I have already reserved my vacation days, starting February 9th.

We decided to go to Iberostar resort at Montego Bay, Jamaica. I am excited, I have never been in Jamaica before, I heard there are so beautiful beaches there. We will book vacation at the last moment hoping that price will go down. A week with the Dreamer on sandy beach, with good food and drinks... can I wish for something better?
