Albert Camus once wrote: “In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer. And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.”
Summer is not only a season that happens once a year, and when it finally happens it lasts rather shorter than longer. Therefore Summer is a state of mind. Few of us knows that. And we try to keep it on our minds all the year long. And even longer than that. I know there are many more of us thinking this way, living this way or at least wanting to live this way. I know for certain, I am.
I’m a summer kid. Although I missed the official beginning of the Summer for exact 5 days, I still count myself as a Summer kid for as long as I know. I mean the very beginning of June already feels like Summer, doesn’t it?! Well, truth to be told, I can already feel Summer beginning of April, while May is the high season already. At least in my head. My body feel it too. Even earlier than that. The whole year round I wear leather jacket and refuse to wear anything other than that. This is actually the first year I’ve bought some winter outerwear. I just don’t like wearing tons of clothes and overall the feeling of being cold. None of the winter activities makes me happy. OK, Christmas does. I love Christmas and the whole spirit around it. But as soon as Christmas is gone, I’m already looking for the Summer.
So, this year, my New Years resolution has been pretty simple. So simple that it seems that this might actually be the only resolution I will hold on to. This year I’m not gonna be looking and waiting for the Summer all year long. This year is going to be the year of the Summer, as I like to call it. Yes, #TheYearOfTheSummer. 2018. I might even prolong it. But for now, it is 2018. The year of the sun, sea, warm air, cold drinks, endless sunsets, summer music, summer clothes and more than ever before, summer destinations. I’m gonna have Summer through the whole year.
I will do my best to honour that all year round. No matter the harsh temperatures and boring winter. No matter the utterly boring first three months of the year. No matter the snow and ice. I will have Summer in my life. My every days will be filled with everything what June, July and August actually are. My whole year will be made of Summer. Summer things, summer stuff, summer feels. I couldn’t care less about anything else.
Good vibes, chill atmosphere, nice people, warm feelings, long nights and moments to remember. Only Summer. All year long. I’m the kid of the Summer. This is my New Years resolution. This is my winter plan. This is my year’s goal.
Summer is hardly only a season. It is a state of mind. Welcome to my state. Where sun is shining eternally.
Happy Summer folks!
