I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately (and my head hurts) – I am in a state of flux at the moment:
How I am living in my late 30’s vs How I feel I SHOULD be living in my late 30’s (or society feels).
I live in Greece at the moment. The bottom line is, I am HAPPY. No, I am not married with kids (shame on me) but I am doing a job I love, helping cats through www.ninelivesgreece.com and attempting my writing.
Am I about to wake up from this ‘ideal’ with a rude bump to earth?
Am I really a butterfly, dreaming I’m a human?
Am I SELFISH for enjoying my life?
(blah blah blah, you get the idea).
Now then, I also got to thinking: WHY does this country – that is suffering so much economically and is corrupt from the very top – make me happy? It can’t just be a weather thing (although this DOES help).
- Is it the fact that I have made more friendships here in my 2 years than I have in my lifetime in the UK? And WHY is that?
- How come a country that is so corrupt attracts so many people to want to up sticks and move here – for Greek people who’ve left to eventually end up back here?
In short: What is it about Greece???!!
Answer in the Comments section please.
Conc: Or maybe I should just shut up and appreciate what I’ve got and stop thinking about it too much – the thing is, one day I’ll wake up and it’ll be 22 years later.
