Nostalgia isn’t what it used to be

Everybody told me I am crazy when not long time ago I decided to go on holiday alone. However it just led me to do this for sure. And of course I was alone only as much as I wanted.

I can‘t say I met great people, still I don‘t know them, but as I love to communicate I found really great talkers. Sometimes in my usual environment I am really missing this – conversations not about food or shoes or jokes. Its easy to be funny, its easy to talk about yourself, to tell other people how great you are, but listening is love and sharing minds is thoughtful. People are not who we think they are, however if you are nice with them, you can make them better. 

I discussed a lot about it with public I don‘t actually know, and what is strange for me, it is so difficult to find someone to talk about it in my ussual environment. Again the same, but this is not my topic for today. Now I am curious about why do we feel nostalgia. I don‘t know, if you, or, when you, feel this, but I get this feeling always after travel. When first time I spend few months in Greece, where I met amazing people all over the world, I fell in love with those people, country, language, traditions and everything. After I came back home I felt pangs of love, I thought I will never see these people again. I was so tearful and grievous, but next summer I came back to the same place. And now time to time I am meeting them in different places of the world.

Still I can‘t voide longing, but I don‘t think it is amiss.  I know you will never get into the place you don‘t have to, I know you will never meet someone you dont have to, I know you will never learn something you dont have to. Everything matters.

Even those people, whom you don‘t apreciate, gives something for you, you learn something from them, you can change and you can change them simply by not knowing it.

Nostalgia isn’t what it used to be. You are longing something you will never get. I mean the same: you can‘t get the same moment or feeling twice. However it‘s worth to try. To try to feel, get, learn more than you can imagine

  1. I can’t see why it’s crazy to go on holiday alone. If it felt right for you, it was the right thing to do.

    I love what you said: “listening is love and sharing minds is thoughtful”. That is so very true. People are definitely not who we think they are. We all have different realities.

    I feel the same way about nostalgia and yes, you can never get the same moment or feeling twice. It’s just never the same, but I don’t think it should be. We are here to grow and learn.

    Such a great post Jojo. Thanks for sharing. Loved it. 😀

    1. I love this part of your comment: “If it felt right for you, it was the right thing to do.” Probably it can’t be wrong if you are following what you feel you need. Thank you so much for commenting!

      1. Glad you do Jojo. We should trust our feelings and instincts more or at least that I what I believe. You felt it was the right thing for you to do, and you did, and you enjoyed it.

        Thanks for the lovely post and you’re very welcome. 😀

  2. I remember getting nostalgic when I just got married and was on my honeymoon. I am Canadian, but I live in Brazil. I married a Brazilian, and our honeymoon was in the Northeast of Brazil at the end of November. It was so hot, and for me, Christmas is cold and cozy. We went to a shopping mall and there were Christmas decorations, Celine Dion singing Christmas carols. I got totally nostalgic feeling. Then when we left the mall and into the blazing hot weather, it was gone. Hahahaha. Back to reality.
