1st of August means national day in Switzerland what again means Helvetia celebrates its 723 birthday today. Therefor happy birthday Switzerland! I am proud to have my roots here in the middle of Europe (patriotic little girl!), surrounded by all the beauty of nature – the endless grass fields and mystical forests, the snowy mountain peaks and crystal clear lakes. Yes, I am glad and lucky to be born here in the high prosperity and political and religious freedom that Switzerland serves to all its residents. Whenever I wish to escape to somewhere else in the world (once thinking about a house right by the sea, once dreaming about the big city life) each time I am away, I am happy to return back home after certain time.

Seems like I am just used to the high standards here… or may I am just a boring person who is satisfied and happy with her daily routine because it is just the easiest way to stay in your comfort zone. I must admit, I actually really think that way about myself from time to time. Sometimes I have to force myself to give something new a try and experience something different that might could go wrong, but you never know as soon as you don’t try it, right?

I have always been very self-controlling, taking a lot of care to say and act how others expect to do. When I was still in school, I could not write any test without learning like crazy before, no matter it were 5 books the test was about. I knew them inside out due to the hard core learning. But sometimes there are points you just can’t keep up your trained perfection – after some time I more and more felt it gets me down trying to be perfect in everything, everytime, everywhere. Sometimes you just have to let things go and commit the responsibility of things to others. May you do mistakes, may some people blame you for it, but those are not the ones you should care about as those are not the ones to call “friends”. I am glad I learned this during the past months – I feel as free and happy as I haven’t since a long time. Therefor I advise everybody to stand by your flaws! They are a part of you just as all your strengths! There is nothing to hide! Being true to yourself is key!

Well, I actually I did not plan this post to turn out this personal (almost kind of a self-therapy. oops.) but seems like I took myself serious this time with letting things go. Don’t blame me ;) At the end, happy 1st of August to all my Swiss country mates who are reading these lines now! Celebrate it well!

  2. I have never had the pleasure of visiting Switzerland, dear Michèle…but my dad lived there for several years before he moved to Canada, and I know he would say that you are indeed a very lucky girl!! This is such an incredibly elegant look; the soft blue blouse paired with those lacy shorts and your white pumps…wow!! The necklace is stunning, too; and if you ever need a new home for that little Burberry Prorsum bag, I’d be happy to volunteer!! ;)
