Sunday Extreme

Dear Optimists,

My Sundays are very different from Den’s, at least yesterday was. Who spend a whole day cooking?

See, yesterday was very sunny here in Denmark. It was even warmer than any other day in October (not really). Nature’s colours were breathtaking. The farm animals were out and about in the fields, letting the warmth from the sun suffuse their bodies. People were walking in the streets with a blissful smirk on their faces. Everything was pure happiness.

Did my boyfriend pursuade me outside for a walk again, you might ask? No way, Jose – he didn’t.

Because, yesterday, I experienced all of this first hand from the back of a motorcycle.

HELL YES!

How was your Sunday, dear Optimists?

Love,
Nadia.

Love is the answer

Dear Optimists,

The key to an optimistic lifestyle must be love, wouldn’t you say so? Most importantly love for yourself, but also love for others. And remembering that there’s someone out there that loves you more than life itself, even when you are still to meet him or her.

I’m happy to say that I’ve met him. 10 years ago, to be exact. Back then I wouldn’t realise, even though I knew deep within my heart that this was right. But he waited. Eight years later and we’re together for the long term.

He’s the one that makes me laugh when I fucked up, he’s the one that listens even when it’s frivolous blabber, he’s the one that accidently pushes me out of the bed at night, he’s the one that looks at me with morning breath, undid hair and no make-up on and still see a princess, he’s the one to carry me when I’m too frail to walk alone, he’s the one to nickname me ‘forever’, because that is what this is.

I love him so dearly, I hope he knows.

Love,
Nadia.
