Just a little shoutout to Ramses who got MARRIED today. Craziness. Congrats, tumblr friend! You are an inspiration to all of us “original” tumblrers! You and your wife are going to do some awesome things for Him, I just know it. Thank you for showing the world who Jesus is and what love looks like. We all need more of that.
I think the biggest difference is that Americans are always striving to find “happiness” in money and work. But Europeans find happiness in every day things. Food, wine, music, walking hand-in-hand, art, culture, friendships, activities etc…
Americans don’t just sit and cherish something. Everything is fast fast fast. I believe in a balance between taking the time to enjoy something and being a professional and getting things done when needed. I also believe that human beings need time off. Holiday’s in America are like a reward system for being a slave at a desk. In Europe everyone gets time off to be healthy and happy.
I’m definitely more of a European at heart but living in America has been good to me. There are more job opportunities here and the pay is higher. Someday I hope to live in Europe though, that’s where I feel truly at home.
Could not agree more with this. Just in the few days I’ve been back in the states from my short trip I have felt more rushed and stressed. I am all for the European way of living, in certain ways at least.
Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.
