Mi castle es su castle

I am in Germany again, this time further south, visiting my mom. And my friends who are still or back in this area! One of the just moved into the castle. Look:

Die Burg

Well, ok, I’ll admit, this picture is a little misleading. She and her husband moved into a house inside the castle. Technically, I even could have chosen the frame in a way so you could actually see the house … but isn’t it much cooler this way?! Not that their actual house isn’t cool …

The quitter wins

I am not ready to let the kitchen cleaning mission go yet I still don’t really feel like it. Then this CRAZY idea popped into my mind: What if I just do the parts that seem easy, and see how far I get? This might sound simple to most but for someone who has been walking around for most their life thinking that doing things half-assed is not allowed, that you have to decide if you’re in or out, that you don’t start unless you’re going to finish, blablablah … for someone like that (not me, of course), the conception of this possibility is really mind-blowing.

After all, if I allow myself to start under the premise that I can quit whenever I want, why, maybe I’ll actually go through with it! If I go about it as I usually do, locking myself into the notion that you have to finish what you started, I probably won’t even start …

So here’s to a day full of doing things half-assed and starting things without finishing them (or at least allowing for that alternative)!
