Lake Neusiedl

Be brave. Be vivacious. Be anything but normal. Be a sea of magic in a world full of deadened eyes. Be anyone you want to be. But never forget that everything is possible, if you can dream it & if you work for it and hold on to your beliefs. Magic is all around us..*

When it comes to being brave or even being confident, I sometimes really struggle with myself. I am just never really content of how I look like, how much I weigh, how I dress, of what I’m doing in my free time, or what I have achieved..  However, bravery & self-confidence is a trait that I always really admire in other people. I often find myself thinking days & weeks about other people and about how they do it, and how I can achieve to get that kind of confidence.

I like to start with the smallest steps. Some days, I am even a little proud of myself because I made a phone call to a stranger or because I went on a run or I wore a dress of which I thought most people would critize or slept over at a friends house. It seems strange to admit that things like this really scare me & I know that most of these things are day to day activities, but then my anxiety kicks in and it becomes so difficult for me.

I know that people mostly admire things that they wished they had or wished they would be & I guess that is the reason why quotes like the one above really get to me, but also excite me and motivate me a lot. I also know that everything is a process, nothing changes overnight, but I am sure that one day I will become the courageous, self-assured person I am deep down.

The photos were taken in Neusiedl am See at Lake Neusiedl (hence the title), which is near my hometown. It’s a beautiful place, especially at sunset. When you walk through the restaurant Mole West and go to the end of the pier, that’s where my favourite place there is. I wouldn’t recommend to swim in the lake because the water is very shallow and sludgy there, but it is a truly magical place to take photographs.
