Spring bubbling under the wintry surface

Helsinki, -7 degrees.

After a week of free relaxing days, it feels nice to think about going back to everyday life and work on Tuesday. I guess this was my winter holiday, something I didn't enjoy around Christmas. Even though Helsinki is still covered with beautiful snow and looks like a true winter wonderland, I've felt a sensation of about what new to bring out for year 2011. I love this time of year, it feels like everybody is bubbling with ideas; it's a wonderfully innovative and creative time of the year. I call it the bubbly time before the blossoming.

I personally felt very restless before the beginning of this week. It felt like I had ran out of new ideas since I was so mentally tired that I just couldn't think of anything new and creative. This due to a combination of things. My job has and is still one of the greatest things in my life. It's a dynamic workplace, always changing and therefore challenging. But in my personal life I've had some things that I have struggled with and those were eating on me. Seriously eating on me. This week it feels like I've had enough time to think about those things and I feel that finally I'm the master of my life again.

I can't say that I could have come to this conclusion if I wouldn't have such a great boyfriend. Of course at a certain point my anger, the one I had inside of me towards everyone and everything, went out on him as well. Fortunately we've had the chance to spend time together this week and bonded even more than ever before. I know now that I'm in a happy place in my life. We're, and therefore, I am stronger than ever.
