Hi, I’m Kathrin and I’ve never had a blog. I also never thought to have a story to tell – and here I am, having a blog and wanting to tell you my story. Ironic, you say? Yeah… kind of. But let me start at the beginning…
I’ve always thought I lived a life different from others. When I finished High School I saw no path before me. Advanced studies shaped my mind and forced me to step out of my comfort zone. But still, everyone around me seemed to fit in somewhere, except me. I simply took a step and then another. Ever forward, ever onward rushing to some place I knew not where. Aiming somewhere. Always motivated. Hard working. Faithful. But I was always feeling scared as well.
Lucky me, there is a wonderful person in my life, who helped me to stop seeing life as a straight, clear street. Don’t get me wrong; those lives are good, too. But my life is rather a…. zigzag, and I’m like Tarzan jumping from vine to vine, swivelling right and left, but definitely getting forward, waiting for the next liana to appear. (Ok, I’m just picturing myself in loincloth and a ten times bigger biceps… #nogoodidea #stopdoingthat #washekidding?)
Today, I turn around and look back and see that each step I’ve taken was a choice to go left, to go right, to go forward or even to not go at all. Every day every man and every woman have a choice. A choice between right and wrong, between love and hate, between fighting and giving up. And the sum of those choices become your life. It’s a beautiful life.
So this is life from my perspective. From the perspective of someone blowing in the wind but getting constantly forward. I know there are more of us. We can accomplish great things, no matter what they say.
Long story short, if you are interested in the writing of a girl somehow looking for a place in this world, come with me and catch the next liana!
Sparkle and shine!
