I've had my fair share of bad shit happen.
And really, I know how it feels to kinda not know how to move further in life.
Stuck in a fucking rut and it 'feels' like there is NO way out.
It's fucking terrible.
I've felt like this quite a few (read:a shitload!) of times this year.
Like ALL hope was lost and there was no light to be found in the darkness that was suffocating me.
But hey, I realized something.
A little nugget of priceless information.
You got to keep the faith in life.
Even if it's just a little bit.
That little bit could potentially be your saviour.

Let me tell you a lil story of what happened just yesterday which made me deeply feel this.
We, the man and I, have been wanting to live together for a while.
And every option that we had sort of fell apart before it even had a chance of happening.
So we were feeling a little down on the whole situation.
Because it just felt like nothing was moving.
It was just a stagnant mess.
Plus the house prices have flown through the roof.
It felt like we were either going to have live on very few square meters or pay exorbitant prices to live like how we want to live.
I had put out a facebook post about a week ago, telling my lovely fb friends that we were on the lookout for a place to call our own!
But very little had come off of it.
On Sunday, I suddenly just had this brain wave that said 'Tomorrow, our house is going to pop up into our life'.
It didn't feel like an epiphany or anything.
It just felt very natural and like it had already happened.
Not an inch of worry was found in my whole being.
And lo and behold, on Monday, a very good friend of mine tagged me in a fb post for a house.
And literally IT'S PERFECT.
So I am like MEGA happy.
And so is my man!
We make an appointment to view it on Wednesday night.
On Wednesday morning, I see that the owner of the house has made another appointment for a viewing with a lady in the afternoon.
(I was still tagged in the fb post so I got all the notifications if someone commented underneath it)
And my whole body started feeling really unwell.
I just KNEW she wanted to have the house too and if I was going to act, we were going to be left house-less.
So what did I do?
Yes the mega forward side in me came out and politely asked him if we could still be first option on the house because my boyfriend was working and could only see it in the evening. Plus we were VERY enthusiastic.
AND THANK GOODNESS THAT I DID THAT!
Because she wanted the house.
But he didn't give to her because I had asked him to hold out for us.
So off we went to look at the place, and it's just LOVELY.
We IMMEDIATELY say YES!
Honestly, it's so perfect that it's like a dream come true.
- It's in THE area I wanted to be in.
- The price was reasonable but he reduced it by another 40 euros per month which makes even more friendly to our pockets.
- Huge livingroom
- The guy who lives above us is a good acquaintance of mine. (I didn't know that beforehand)
- We get the keys on the 1st of December but only start paying from the 1st of Jan. Which saves us a ton of money because we don't have to pay double rent!
It's just cosy, cute and it feels like it's going to be our home.
Now, for me to feel that way is weird.
The last time I felt at home anywhere was when I was 16, living in Spain.
So after 11 years of not being very invested in my living space, now I am SO excited to move into our little loveplace.
I even started a Pinterest board to get ideas for how to decorate our home (hahaha)
So the moral of the story or atleast what it feels like for me.
Have a little faith.
Because life can surprise you in ways that feel so magical, it'll make your heart blossom wide open.
