I am feeling kind of off today. I wonder why? My kitchen is a big mess (die Schweinerei). Kids run around the house like wild monkeys making even bigger mess. It seems like my apartment is kind of clogged or congested (Verstopfte Wohnung). I decide to clean up the mess (aufräumen). Get rid of all the rubbish. In moment like that, when I get rid of all the noise, trash around me I am able to find my calmness (Gelassenheit). Just the feeling of letting it go (loslasssen) is great. Not the feeling of indifference (Gleichgültigkeit). Just a feeling that life is a gift. Precious present. Have a nice day.
Topics for discussion for our online lessons via Skype:
1. How do you feel when you have a mess in your flat?
2. Do you have a simple life style? How would you describe your lifestyle?
