The Huggin Takeoff

Yesterday I had a full day.

I went for a walk throught the city, met a friend and, after eating some great food, went for walk.

We ended up on the back of a restaurant, if you can call it that, and we hanged there for hours, talking and laughing and eating.

But one of the most interesting things was that I drew a bit. It’s been a while since the last time I had drawn anything simply for the fun of doing it. It may sound pretty stupid and childish of me to give such importance to a mere hour or such of drawing, but I had the dream, during most of my childhood, of growing up to become a draftsman or a comic book artist or a writer… And I must admit that I just loved it.

I had a great time, and was allowed time to drift from thought to thought, lay with my back in the grass and watch the clouds… And imagine.

When you are in a tough situation, and everything is complicated, and every action you take must be carefully planned… The best single tip and council I can share is: Stop.

Whenever you find a moment to yourself, that you can use it as you want. Stop. Put your stress down by your feet. Lay down your bags and packs… And look up. Search for a view, and if none is avaiable look up to the sky.

Close your eyes, feel the wind in your hair and give that moment to yourself. Be it as long as possible, an hour, 10 minutes or a single moment. Stop. Close your eyes and let the world BE around you.

I allowed my imagination to fly by itself and watched the clouds, wrote and drew.
And be it for whatever reason it may, I had just a great time…

Stress does comeback.

But you can always hold on to those memories of peace. And also, there’s always another moment to stop.

Im keeping that in mind, for, surprisingly, I miss drawing so very much… And I don’t want to miss anything that makes me happy that much ever again, as long as I can help it.

About Huginn
I'm on my twenties, I live in Brazil and enjoy playing video games, board games and Role Playing Games. I'm what some consider a nerd, or a geek, but at the same time not your traditional preconception of a geek. No glasses, play sports, but I like science and geography, I like to read and love to travel and to make up stories about places and and times. I am no genius, but there are definitely a load of stupidity going around.
