I won’t repeat how tired and exhausted I am (save for this one time), because at the end of the day it is the good kind of exhausted, when you feel as if you’ve done a lot of work that accomplished something.
I don’t feel that I am wasting my time, which may very well be the biggest surprise coming out of this trip, because we all have been rather skeptical about coming to Athens.
At the end of the day, I am living for five minutes that I get to go out and see a sunset like this.
We left the office late once more, picked the place we wanted to go and have lunch and raced in the taxi against the setting sun to have a moment of beauty and I felt that it had all be worth it somehow.
If you get to end your day like this, you have to appreciate those five minutes for what they are and not worry about the day’s work ahead or keep discussing the day’s work past. Just look up, enjoy the view and take a deep breath.
You’ve made it. Whatever the struggles were that the day has thrown your way, you’ve made it until sunset and you’re going to see another day.
The best bit is that I can share this with you, show you a photo that I captured, a precious moment. And put words to it.
You were there, you didn’t run no matter how much you wanted to and had your camera ready and now you write once more.
You’re going to be alright, come what may.
