Oxford, the paradise of dead philosophers.


Sometimes the best way to get out of a bad mental place is to physically take yourself to a different place, a little like going on holiday. For me at least the change in surroundings seems to trigger a reboot in my head and re sparks a bit of motivation and positivity. Obviously its not always a viable option with work and other responsibilities but as i have neither of those at the moment i've become somewhat of a suitcase kid (Jacqueline Wilson anyone?) and built up a few places in the last few months that i can escape to.

The added bonus is that when i start to feel more motivated i'm able to do the things i love again. Of course being inspired helps which is why Oxford has quickly become a favorite haven to me, the architecture and quaint little quirks have reunited me with my camera. Most of these are from December and aside from instagram were some of the first photos i'd taken in months. It may not seem like a big deal but to me just enjoying things like photography and writing again feels like a huge achievement. Eventually i'm hoping that the things i enjoy will become enough to pull me out of a bad patch without having to relocate every three or four days but for now i'm just grateful that i've found a way to give myself a little bit of happiness.
XOXO
