Last Tuesday, I went to a workshop held by this amazing shop called Kikki-K. The topic is honestly the first thing that made me booked myself in. It was about Happiness. For the past two to three months, I was not feeling happy as I'm supposed to be. I wasn't happy about myself and the way I think, wasn't happy with my relationships with people, how they talked to me, how their words hurt my feelings, and how I treat myself. More than that, I wasn't happy because I was focusing on something that made me unhappy. 

So, a few days before the workshop, I stumbled on the shop when I was strolling around the mall after bought myself flowers. Without a doubt, I knew myself wanted to go but that day, I wasn't sure if I could or could not go because of the meeting and work stuff. After made sure I'm all good to go, I called the shop again and booked myself in. 

My motive to come to the workshop is because I know I wasn't happy, so I need someone or something, that could help me to find my way into the happiness again. And I thought this workshop might be great. 

It was. 

I made a right decision. It is also true meaningful events are no coincidence.

Iya, sudah genap enam bulan aku dan kamu saling mengenal. Kamu yang menjadi saksi proses pendewasaanku. Kamu yang menjadi saksi isak tangis dan tawaku, mendengar lirihnya ucapan syukurku, bahkan menertawakanku saat aku lari-lari karena hampir ketinggalan bus, menggelengkan kepala saat melihatku tersesat. 

Ringwood, hari pertama aku tiba, setelah melewati malam yang berat di Melbourne karena kurangnya komunikasi yang berakibat salah paham, aku langsung tahu kalau kamu akan menjadi tempat yang paling berkesan selama aku tinggal di Victoria. Bukan hanya karena kamu tempat tinggal pertamaku di luar negeri, namun juga karena aku tidak hanya tinggal disini. 

I create a life.

I spent my Saturday relaxing at home, organised my room, did some washing and ironing, had a nice family dinner and went to bed early. On Sunday, I forced myself to get out from the bed - I know myself if I stayed in bed, I would not get out until dinner time. I hate when I'm being unproductive. So, instead of doing something hard, I took a shower, applied my makeup and went to the mall, had a nice lunch and then went to the cinema to watch Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. 

The weather was very nice this Sunday afternoon. When I got home around 4 pm, I grabbed my book and went to the park behind our house and enjoyed the sunshine before it set! This has been a pretty easy weekend. I tried so hard to get my wellness back to its balance. I'm a work in progress and that's okay. No rush. No need to be that hard again. Whatever happens, let it happens. 

This week was a big change for me. I made a big decision of my life and others. This decision was not easy to be made. Honestly speaking, I never thought I would have to take this way. So, for the past few days, I took my days carefully and I will keep it that way. This is not going to be easy but I need to get my shit done. I need to get my priorities right. 

I am my priority. My wellbeing, my mental and physical health. 

Cheers to the eye and mind opener weekend!

Today I had a date with myself as an apology for being too hard lately, for having bad thoughts and hating myself for something I did not do. More than that, this date was also a self-appreciation and a way of thanking myself for being very brave to fight those demons inside my head and for not giving up.

Anyway, here are some snippets of my fine Thursday. Treat yourself, girl! 

I bought myself flowers because she loves it.

I spent three days in Benalla, Victoria. Relaxed at my friend's house, went to the art gallery and spent good time to appreciate the beauty of winter skies and the blooms!

Mount Buller, Victoria.

All I can see is white, my comfort, my safe zone. 
First snow in my first winter.
You are beautiful.

Thank you Addinda and Asri who took my pictures xx

Love, Vera
