I always thought I was a good traveller, but it appears I was wrong. Every evening I start feeling sick when the sun goes down and wishing for Australian sunshine. I guess I’m still jet lagged and I haven’t been very well so far, I’m sure I’ll stop this homesick nonsense soon :( really I want to leave the UK and get to Italy and France and Germany but its a while until I do that. Fingers crossed tomorrow I’ll feel betterrrrr
"Depression is when you don’t really care about anything, anxiety is what you care too much about everything… and having both is like what? Having both is staying in bed because you don’t want to go to school and then panicking because you don’t want to fail. Having both is wanting to go see your friends so you don’t lose them all then staying home in bed because you don’t want to make the effort."
Observe your own body. It breathes. You breathe when you are asleep, when you are no longer conscious of your own ideas of self-identity. Who, then, is breathing? The collection of information that you mistakenly think is you is not the protagonist in this drama called the breath. In fact, you are not breathing; breath is naturally happening to you. You can purposely end your own life, but you cannot purposely keep your own life going. The expression, ‘my life’ is actually an oxymoron, a result of ignorance and mistaken assumption. You don’t possess life; life expresses itself through you. Your body is a flower that life let bloom, a phenomenon created by life.
