Personal Jungle – Sunny Side Of Life

My sweeties, today, I have a very specific question for you all:

How much of an optimist are you?

Fundamentally, I’m not a too optimistic person when it’s about single situatios. “No need to try, I don’t think there will be any more tickets.”, “Nah, the app says it’ll be raining aaaall day tomorrow, no chance!”, “They’re already 15 minutes late, I don’t think they’re still gonna come.” Those are standard phrases for me. But when it’s about life in general, I would say I’m still very optimistic. “It’s all gonna be fine.”, is my favourite sentence.

So, somehow, I’m an optimistic pessimist. Sounds weird, but perhaps some of you feel the same? But I do have my tricks to turn bad situations or stupid Mondays into something nice after all. Even when my inner pessimist is really sure that a day can’t turn any better, my inner optimist still has a good idea to turn the table around. Mostly, it’s the positive thought of a lovely evening after a bad day together with my love. Simply sitting by the window talking or on the couch watching a movie, this can always turn my day around in the end.

Or we walk to the Rhine river or sit down at a nice café, drinking a beer or an aperitif (of course, responsibly). My favourite aperitif? Aperol Spritz*. And I already turned Max into a lover of this drink as well!

I got to know the aperitivo when I was around 20, during my time in Italy near the Lake Garda. Together with my boyfriend Marco from back then, an Italian Pete-Doherty-lookalike who was also the singer in a cool band, we spent many evenings in a cozy bar, ordering Aperol with Prosecco, eating Salami, dried tomatoes and Grissini. What an eye-opener that was! The Italians truly know how to lead the good life. And even though I don’t like to think back to this guy too much, I’ll always remember the great afternoons with an aperitivo in hand in the Italian sun.

This is how you easily create the perfect Aperol Spritz

3 parts Prosecco(6cl)
2 parts Aperol (4cl)
1 splash of soda
Ice cubes
1-2 orange zests
1 splash of fresh orange juice

How do you motivate yourself after a long, stressful day or during this no-summer weather? Do you have more clever ideas? Let me know!

    Heh, yes, I’m the same optimistic pessimist. :D I have tried Aperol Spritz couple of years ago, when it was just launching in Finland and loved it instantly!
    Beautiful photos, your dress is such a gorgeous boho piece and suits you perfectly.

    Ich habe leider die Angewohnheit das Glas zu oft halb leer zu sehen aber ich arbeite daran es zu ändern! Bring ja nichts immer vom schlechten im Leben aus zu gehen :)
