Embracing the nonsensical things in life.
I really like to live a lot, but in my own way... I tried hard to free myself from this belief of "the right life to have" and now maybe I am too much of the opposite side.
When I go to cities I get a bit obsessed and I try to experience everything it has to offer, I do travel a bit, but I mostly want to experience the place I am now intensively.
I also love making lists: café list, bar list, gallery list, food list, to do list, movie to watch list, people I have to take coffee with list: I love the ritual of discovering a new place with someone while having a good conversation (or even alone).
I don't have a smartphone and I am trying to resist it because I know I'll surely get addicted. I do use my dumbphone very wisely, if you tell me good things I take notes so not to forget, if you owe me money, or I owe anything, I also note it down! You never know when you drink too much beers...
Finally, I believe that every experience has a positive side, and everything is great for you if you haven't tried yet. I am really inspired by Louis Theroux documentaries, where he puts himself in uncomfortable situations that go against his beliefs but makes the best out of them by transforming everything into valuable soul experiences.
"Don't do to others what you wouldn't like that someone would do to you."
This is very hard to control though.
