But the real estate market seems to be asleep in our town and we don't seem to be able to find something appropriate (ahem - "seem" seems to be one of my favorite words, sorry!). However, I realized that my wish to move into a new apartment makes me feel more and more uncomfortable in my current place. I mean naturally there are some things that really are uncomfortable for me there but still it is a nice apartment and it really doesn't deserve my discontentment. Besides, my sister always tells me that before something changes for the better in my life I have to love what I have first (that somehow seems to me a contradiction in some instances but I do understand what she means by it).
Another problem is that I don't start to beautify the apartment anymore (usually one of my hobbies) because I'm thinking "We're going to move out of it soon anyway!".
Now I have come to the conclusion that I have to change my attitude: I have to love what I have and also start with my hobby again.
That's why I walked around in my apartment today and took some photos of things I like there/things I have made in the past to beautify the apartment/things I have made the past days to beautify my apartment - Never mind if we're not staying there forever!
(Yes: not only empty words - I have already started to put my plans into action!)
