Suzy

The week was full of fun. People, places, pleasures… Glamorous life of a young celebrity is everybody’s dream you would think, but she wasn’t really impressed by gifts and flowers her wannabe boyfriends showered her with. Watching the sun goes down and daydreaming of an empty city guarded by stray dogs and friendly crows has become her hobby. The sound of silence was her favorite thing after all the rehearsals and music lessons she was required to take. Language and art classes were optional so she could enjoy them a bit more.

Some days flying first class was like a second job for her, she grew to hate it so fast. Schedules and itineraries were always in the way as if someone or something else owned her life. When will I start living for real? – she would ask herself time and again. Most folks would do anything to have the luxury of being famous, rich and beautiful. But she had another dream…

What a weird world we live in! People only want what they can’t have. If they are single they try to get married, if they are married they want a divorce. In the crowd we always seek for privacy and staying home alone inspires the need to go out. Contradictory human nature is there to challenge and make us miserable. In winter we want sunny warm days and in a hot season we are dreaming of snow and frost.

It was a middle of December, two years since she became a star. Holiday season with all its charm was in full swing, the time to make wishes and wait for miracles to happen. Suzy was hoping to run away from her successful career in show business and become a world traveler, hitch hiker and camper. No schedules, no flights, no obligations… Sweet, sweet dreams to be living a simple life of a nobody.

Volunteer

Since I quit my job I can volunteer, it makes me feel needed and appreciated. I want to recommend it to everyone but you have to hit the timing right to enjoy it. Timing is the key element in the secret of achieving the ultimate happiness. There is time for everything, I didn’t realize what it means really. It’s only now that I am enjoying cold rainy weather, never expected to be able to until we moved to Colorado. Sunshine is something we take for granted here. Rainy days are rare and appreciated more than anything. Maybe it’s just what getting older entails or maybe the time has come…

Becoming a volunteer can transform your life as well as mine. It’s like opening a door for opportunity and change. I hate unexpected and unwelcome changes to be honest, the things that I can foresee and be ready for are not as bad. Interestingly, the best things happened to me when I broke the routine and agreed to try something new like helping kids with disabilities or accepting the offer to be a counselor at summer camp. Only when you feel like you have nothing to lose you can find something precious helping others to feel better. So when you you finally get there you would probably wish it to last forever. But it too will pass.
