Why Do All Good Things Come to an End?

Posted: December 30, 2012 in Uncategorized

Here we go…

So I decided to wait a while before writing my latest entry- the last thing I want to do is bore everyone with my posts! I’ve decided that this blog should be about appreciation- something many people take for granted.

 We tend to never really appreciate anything until it’s gone, until we have been stripped bare of the norm. I’m now in my 4th week of being in Germany and I finally realised that I need to start appreciating the things that I have back home. These things seem to be such necessities to me when I’m in Australia- things like a car, money, food but most importantly- my loved ones.

 Now I’m not here to bore you with my sad stories about how much I miss my family (although I do) or how much I need to see my friends (although I do), I’m simply here to tell anyone out there to turn to someone you love and give them a hug. You never know how long you have with someone, they can easily get taken away faster than you can say ‘I love you’. It feels weird knowing that one of my family members could pass away whilst I’m here in Germany and I couldn’t do anything about it. I would have to wait until my time here is up until I could get on a flight back to Australia to comfort and grieve.

 And yes, if you are reading this and you are in your own home you might be thinking ‘this Kristian dude is totally nuts’ but what I write is the truth. It is the little things we take for granted. We don’t appreciate a simple dollar, we don’t appreciate a kiss from our parents, we don’t appreciate a hug from our friends… these things are supposed to be there whenever we want. I believe the best song to accompany this post is Nelly Furtado’s Why Do All Good Things Come To An End. This song is all about losing things and things coming ‘to an end’. Take a listen, press the repeat button, fall asleep. Its calming but also soothing, and it helps you to think positive during that annoying time just before you fall asleep when you start thinking about everything.


 I’m not sure whether or not I can truly fathom the idea that I’m only just halfway through this journey of epic proportions. I still have another 26 days to go and I’m starting to struggle! There were times where I was content, but now I am wanting to go. I need to see my family. I need a hug. I need a kiss. I need an I love you. I need something. 

So that’s it! I’m done! Leave me with your thoughts, give me a topic, tell me your favourite Keeping Up With the Kardashian spin-off! Whatever suits you!
