FOR THE WORLD OF AYLIN. PUBLISHED JANUARY 3, 2021
According to Ockham’s razor “all things being equal, the simplest explanation is usually the most likely.”
And it is that sometimes I do crossword puzzles in my head, how almost everyone, making speculations about what will happen, what I will do, what I will say, and many times, (almost always, the truth) I tend to think about the biggest catastrophes what will happen to me if …
I have always been little trusting and when faced with a proposal or a possible change I always go for the most complicated, I always compose in my head situations that will never occur, because the simplest thing is to see how everything develops and act accordingly. Many times the most likely is the simplest.
I recognize that it is good to plan movements but there are circumstances in life that are better to do when they arise.
I don’t like planning trips a lot because I have the feeling that in the waiting period until the arrival of “D” day so many things can happen that countless negative situations come to mind.
For me, the best thing is to get up one morning and if that weekend I feel like traveling, I travel. Of course, if I can’t find any accommodation because everything is full, nothing happens, alternative solutions are sought, which always exist. I always tend to think that when things don’t work out, it’s because they didn’t happen.
“DO NOT LEAVE FOR TOMORROW WHAT YOU CAN DO TODAY.”
I TELL YOU A SMALL ANECDOTE TO CONFIRM WHAT I SAY AND IF IT HELPS YOU TO MAKE YOU THINK, THEN I WILL BE VERY GLAD.
FOR HOLY WEEK OF 2016 JUST ONE DAY BEFORE THE HOLIDAYS, ALL MY CO-WORKERS WERE GOING SOMEWHERE. I DIDN’T HAVE PLANS AND WHEN I ARRIVED AT MY MOTHER’S HOUSE I TOLD HER AND MY SISTER TO MAKE THE SUITCASES THAT WE ARE GOING THROUGH, PATH INCLUDED.
I DID NOT HAVE RESERVATIONS OR ANYTHING PLANNED BUT I FEEL THAT I WOULD FIND SOME HOTEL TO BE ABLE TO GO … (MY SISTER’S ILLUSION AND MINE HAS ALWAYS BEEN TO MAKE MOTHER ENJOY WHAT FOR MANY YEARS I COULD NOT LIVE).
MY MOTHER, WHO CONFORMED WITH VERY LITTLE, WOULD NOT DO OTHER THAN TELL ME NOT TO WORRY AND NOT TO SPEND MY MONEY, THAT SHE WAS ALREADY HAPPY WITH GOING TO TAKE SOMETHING NEAR, INSISTED TO ME THAT WE WOULD DO IT LATER.
I PERFECTLY REMEMBER THAT I TOLD HER THAT THINGS HAD TO BE DONE WHEN THEY ARISED UP AND I TRANQUILIZED HER SAYING THAT IF I DIDN’T FIND A HOTEL, WE WOULDN’T GO BUT IF THERE WAS SOMEONE WHO HAD FREE ROOMS AND THEY ALLOWED PUPPIES, THEN. IN THE BACKGROUND, MY MOTHER WAS LIKE A GIRL WITH NEW SHOES FOR THE POSSIBLE TRIP.
I FINALLY GOT A ***** HOTEL IN MADRID AT A PRICE LITTLE CHEAPER THAN USUAL AND THERE WE GO.
I HAVE NEVER SEEN MY MOTHER ENJOY HOW SHE DID ON THAT TRIP. I HAD NEVER BEEN IN A FIVE STAR HOTEL (ALTHOUGH I NEVER HAD BEEN MANY) AND I LOOKED LIKE A LITTLE GIRL.
AT THE END OF THREE MONTHS HE GAVE MY MOTHER THE BRAIN SPILL THAT LEFT HER IMMOBILE AND SPEECHLESS.
I HAVE THOUGHT MANY TIMES ABOUT THAT DAY, I HAVE VISUALIZED THAT MOMENT EVERY INSTANT CONFIRMING THAT IF WE DIDN’T HAVE GONE TO MADRID SHE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO ENJOY EVERYTHING WE LIVE.
THAT WAS FOR ME A BEFORE AND A AFTER. FROM THAT MOMENT MY MOTTO IS TO LIVE FROM DAY TO DAY. I DO NOT THINK ABOUT THE SUMMER, IN TWO MONTHS VIEW OR EVEN IN ONE MONTH VIEW.
WE THINK, WE MAKE PLANS, WE LEAVE THINGS FOR TOMORROW WITHOUT REALIZING THAT TOMORROW DOES NOT EXIST, TOMORROW IS UNCERTAIN….
WE FORM PUZZLES BY IMAGINING, GUESSING, JUDGING … WHEN EVERYTHING IS MUCH EASIER THAN WE THINK, EVERYTHING IS SIMPLE “LIVE LIFE DAY BY DAY, DO NOT THINK SO MUCH ABOUT THINGS THAT DO NOT DEPEND ON YOU, DO NOT DO TO ANYONE YOU LIKE WHAT THEY DO TO YOU AND LASTLY LIVE “
I TELL YOU ANOTHER PASSAGE OF MY LIFE THAT ALSO COMES TO CORROBOR MY POSITION. ON SALE I Bought SOME SHOES FROM A BRAND THAT I LOVED. HOW I BUY THEM AT A VERY GOOD PRICE I REFUSED TO RELEASE THEM UNTIL A SPECIAL EVENT CAME (THEY ARE JEWELED SHOES) EVERYTHING IS SAID IN PASSAGE. A FEW DAYS AFTER THEIR ACQUISITION, (I DON’T LIKE LEAVING THINGS IN THE CLOSET FOR A LONG TIME), I DECIDED TO BRING THE SHOES TO GO TO WORK.
JUST THAT SAME DAY OF THE PREMIERE I HAD A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT THAT ALMOST COSTS MY LIFE. THE SHOES FLYED OFF AND I LEARNED AT THE HOSPITAL THAT THEY HAD BEEN PICKED UP FROM THE ROAD SAFE AND SAFE.
Here is another episode that confirms my decision to live day to day. ☑️
