Lesson #22

I like to think that we grow a little every year (not up in my case, cuz who am I kidding?), that we learn things we didn't know the previous year. And I think this year I've learnt that - getting what you want? You know, the whole go-after-what-you-want-if-you-wanna-be-happy thing? - is overrated. Sometimes you just don't get what you want. And that's okay. Because most of the time, you don't need what you think you want, to be happy. Sometimes seeing other people happy instead can be enough. And healthier even. 

In other news, winter is coming (cue Game of Thrones theme track). I laid down on the terrace this evening and I could feel it. This means cold morning breeze, white mist ghosts in the street, fancy jackets. Icy tap water. Warm plate of Maggi noodles on a freezing afternoon. Boots. Never getting out from under the quilt. Fuzzy sweaters. Yeah. It's going to be nice.

Yay for winter gloves.
