World of imagination

Have you ever wished that ones you close your eyes and open them again you find yourself somewhere else? Some other place that is better reality but as real as it?

Here’s The Solution!

It’s not some kind of spell, but it works let’s say 99% of the time.

Way #1 (the most efficient and easiest way, at least for me :D):

MUSIC. One word, 5 letters of magic. Ones I get into a situation that was so exhausting and it’s not over yet. I play music, I have the play list that includes all my favorite songs, but I have other playlists for reading, relaxing, working out or even meditation! They act like my painkillers actually 😀 Like after a long day or before I sleep or at the car, plane,train,bus. Sometimes it’s when I want to escape but in my place. That’s getting weird, isn’t it? Okay let me explain. Like now while writing this blog. I am sitting with my parents, they are watching the TV and I want to focus on my writing so I am playing jazz, with 88% volume in my headphones. Or play music and imagine what I would love to be doing right now instead of being here. Although I actually still keep an eye to the surroundings so I don’t look like a fool when I get called 😉 😀

Way #2

BOOKS, MOVIES, TV SHOWS. Those ones preferable to be at the night while everyone thinks you are either asleep or simply no one is there, so you can enjoy your world of imagination, also so you have nothing else to do and wake up to the real world of troubles :D. It’s usually better if you had some background soft music while reading or watch your movie or tv show with headphones or with volume that blocks the world for at least a moment and also try to keep checking the medium like ( god forbidden) maybe a thief is breaking into your house while you just there enjoying 😀

(Those ways I guess most of us do, but just take care always of the surroundings around you while playing the music or so on. God forbidden, if something happened you can notice and take action 🙂)

Way #3

LEAVE HOME SWEET HOME. Well, if you can :D. Like most of the time I can’t leave the house because of transportation troubles or so on. But I try always to go out if I can and I know that this hangout will please me and make me happy. Like if I know that this going out might just not help or make me more upset I just skip it. Well, I get judged that I am depressing and so on by my family because I don’t usually leave the house, but honestly I tried to explain myself zillions of times until I just got tired and gave up anyway. My point is, people’s judgment can’t always be accurate so it’s only you and people who knows the real truths who can somehow judge. Just don’t listen to the negative vibes so much :D. Go to the amusement park, the museum the cinema. Those places which have a story to tell or make you live their story 😉 :D.

Those are my main 3 ways anyway 😀 I have more but believe me that might take blogs and pages :D.

If you want more ways though, just let me know in the comment 😉 :D.

If you also have ways comment them below for others to know 😉 😀

Dear mind, this one is for you..

In this blog I am going to write a letter to my mind. 

P.S. It’s not as stupid as you think (hopefully) 😀

Dear mind,

As all letters I should start by asking how are you. Although I actually know how are you. You are always busy and tired even if with the teeny tiniest stuff that goes around you. Therefore, I am begging you to have some rest because you don’t only make yourself tired but me, my body and soul.

Thanks for the caring though. You’ve always been there to keep me awake and ready all the time. You kept me safe most of the time by making me realize the danger I might be in or making me able to analyze the type of people that I am dealing with. But, don’t you think that it’s too much? You are right that life is hard and might be getting harder and more dangerous every second. That way I might be having no one left to trust, do you realize that? It’s hard to make all of it with only us. Right! Safety is important and thinking but there is a pale here who is called heart who also needs some freedom, you know that, right ?

Also, why do you work so much? Huh? I am so tired of worrying about everything, aren’t you? Like in this very moment I am thinking of a lot of things. For others, these things might be so silly, but not for me. You always tell me that I can keep up, that I can take more. It’s nothing compared to other’s concerns. You might be right, but it’s only your sound, do you realize that? Have you heard the rest of my body’s sounds? My soul? My heart?

Why do you keep lying to me? Why do you keep telling me that everything is going to be fine, give me the hope and then in a second steal it from me? Why do you keep me dreaming and flying when you know that in a moment I will fall hardly to the ground?

The questions are a lot. I know I will never get the answers. I just hope that one day, I might be able to see the dreams, reality. That’s not your sound this time. It’s my heart’s. It’s the faith and hope in it. It’s the sound the you face every time you remind me of the dark reality, of the world’s cruelty. The world is good, really. If you could picture the colored picture of it, then it should exist somewhere. Will you keep that piece of information please and keep reminding me of it?

I stopped for a moment now before this to think of what I write next and I found out that whatever can be wrote might take all the words in the world, but won’t be enough. Just remember one thing. Whatever happens, the worse is yet to come.

Yours,

Me

What would your letter to your mind would be?

( sorry if that seemed a little bit psycho, sometimes we have to admit some things to ourself to keep space for the coming next. Go on! Empty what’s in you too 🙂 )

Productivity knows no strategy

In the past year, I’ve been told that I study a lot or that I spend a lot of time studying and that I am a nerdy- which wasn’t so true by the way :D. Well, Studying too much was true especially that in my country most students have private lessons out of school to help them in studying and scoring high marks. So even if it wasn’t myself studying alone I would be having a lesson anyway. Therefore, people started asking me how do I do it? Like what type of strategy I follow to keep me studying without being sick of the book, although I actually hardly sit focusing for so much time on learning some kind of information.

SO! First of all! I didn’t have any strategies or time tables expect those ones to remind me of my exam timings, or my lessons.  The only thing I had was faith and goals. Goals of having my own successful, famous, global business or being one day one of the youngest entrepreneurs or  have an early PhD. Big hopes right 😉 :D? Anyway, I had the aim of high score and achievements. So simply, I followed my heart and used my mind. I did what I see best to me. I didn’t study complete full hours, I used to watch TV shows or listen to music when I just get sick of it all. I made my favorite food or asked my mum, actually :D. I knew my duties well and knew my date and deadlines very well. I tried my best to enjoy it like hanging out mainly every weekend with my friends or got to the gym to get rid of the negative energy and on the exam days I practiced my own sport at home. I did it all hoping to get the best marks but I didn’t put that as a must. I just did my best and went for it.

Most importantly, is that I LOVED what I did. I picked the subjects that I love and loved to major at, so whatever I did was pleasing me more than just studying for it. It meant more. Therefore, an advice from me to you, do what you love. Don’t get obligated to something, because if you don’t love it, you won’t give it what it needs from you. When you do the something you love, you will find yourself doing it and spending time in it just as easy and gentle as the water flows.

That was about my studies but that applies to everything, to your job, your relationships, everything. So if you are reading this and there is that thing you that someone forced you to do, well refuse it! Do what you think you are best for and that you enjoy. Remember that if the thing you are doing is joyful to you then you will never need strategies to keep it always to the top 😉

SO! What changes are you going to change now? What doesn’t need strategies to produce for you 😉 :D?

Mirror mirror on the wall..

Who didn’t ever wish to have a mirror on the wall that shows us everything happening and most important of all is that it shows the truth, just like the one at Snow White. Don’t get me wrong we actually kinda have one of those mirrors that are called TVs and Internet, although it might be full of rumors. Well whatever, that’s not what I want to talk about here now actually, maybe some other blog. 😀

We all agree that mirrors, the ones we have, shows truth, Like for example, if you look cute it will show you cute unlike the phones and filters. However, our eyes are the ones that look at mirror and judge what it sees, and that’s EXACTLY what that blog is about. Most of the time when we dress something like for example, worse yesterday, the first thing comes in my mind ” oh, but I wore that yesterday what will people think..” and then some of us might say ” nah.. who cares I just Love that t-shirt, i am going with it today too!”. Some others say ” I better change it and wear something else or people might think that I don’t do my laundry” or ” That I don’t have other than this T-shirt”. Well Both ways, still the first thing pops in our minds is the people’s opinion. Off course people’s opinion is important and maintaining our image but mostly we might be harming ourselves for caring about other people than us.

The pressure of always looking to what people think or say might keep our minds busier than it’s supposed to be and obviously pay more than we can afford 😀 The idea here is that You can keep that pressure but for your own judge, your own benefit and happiness. Like if you are going to buy a new dress or wear make up or go to the gym or buy a new car that is really luxurious. Then do! But first are you doing it for your own pleasant and satisfaction or is it for people’s eyes? Because believe me, people’s eyes always see that it doesn’t matter how much effort you put into it, they still believe that they are the best. It’s human nature! The whole idea here is that if you want to bear the pressure of staying fit is for your own health and pleasure so that when YOU look in the mirror, YOU judge yourself not the people. You can accept people’s polite judgment, you know those ones that might help you keep things better but believe me, NO ONE EVER has the right to make a joke of you. We are all human beings and we all good and better than each others in different ways the are many to count.

So! The next time you look at the mirror all you are going to think of is ” Does that look good to me? Does the change or the maintain worth it to keep me happy and satisfied in my own way of life 😉 😀 ”

If you are looking at the mirror now what will you say? 😉 😀

Can it be real ..?

When we hear about someone who is so happy and satisfied in their life or so successful or got lucky, people say that it’s his or her luck and that if it happened it mostly happen on TV shows , movies and in the dreams.

It’s true that most of what we see on the screens is not true and much more prefect than reality, but have you ever thought about that idea that if someone thought about it then it actually exists in the real life? We are all human beings at the end and it doesn’t matter how genius and smart someone is our celling of thought always has a limit that we all have and can reach and no one can reach more than it. Therefore, Whatever we see and open our mouths in surprise and astonishment, I think we also can reach that much of greatness.  I know that what I am thinking about is a little bit weird and a lot of overthinking but I actually have been watching a lot of TV shows this holiday and I couldn’t help but notice the details and watch normal people around me, compare the reality and what’s-so-called dream world and compare them and I found out that both world are the same, just a little more purified.

I’ve tried to actually try this dreamy world in real life to prove that to myself that everything is possible. I tried even the simple things like my lifestyle such as trying to have healthy food and simple one too like I didn’t get the expensive type of food to keep myself healthy I tried with the simple stuff I had and it actually kind of worked. I have been sporting and take care of myself. I tried to change my life plans like instead of just sitting around caring about nothing to actually get engaged in the conversations around me and training in the career I am planning to have. I started leaning new languages and planned for my senior year that I would be doing more than just studying for my diploma, like having driving lessons, or writing more something that doesn’t only depends on my grades, after all school is go to be done but my life won’t and I still have a lot to learn other than my lessons and ALs.

After all, it seemed to me that what we see on the screens can actually happen in real life if we want, it depends on how we want it. We don’t have to be statues to be perfect, remember that whatever we see on the screen or dream of is all created by a human being, just like you. They create the story and scenario to make an imaginary story for us to enjoy or learn from. You too! Create your own story and your own heroes. It’s your own life babe! Live it as much as you can and make from your own life a story that is the nearest to perfection, because the truth is nothing is called perfection.

How do you see what is on the screen now? Still impossible to happen in real life yet? 😉 😀

PS:Life is too short

Live everyday like you it’s the last day of your life, and live your life as if you live forever

We all have our own fights, some of them are the ones that help us build our lives and give us a goal to live for. Others that only waste our life time, such as our fights with our families and friends. Some fights yes worth it, but they are few ones that rarely happens. Life isn’t that long to spend it in ignoring phone calls of your beloved ones or staying home sitting on the couch and cancel hanging out.

Listen! From now on, you are not cancelling any going outs to stay at home, or cancelling phone calls because you just don’t want to answer it. Fell free to go out do what you’ve always wished for as long as you can! Be who you’ve always wanted to be.

Remember: When you are backed against the wall, break the goddamn thing down

– Suits TV Show

Most importantly is to not depend on someone for your happiness or to do you something for you. Since my holiday started, I’ve been asking people and my father to ask for me about a center to learn Italian at it, but off course everyone is busy, therefore, I started to learning on my own and Io studio l’italiano di per una settimana adesso (I study Italian for a week now) :D. Do what is best for you no matter what 😉 😀

Life is short to be sad or angry for more than usual it deserves. Look around and see how life can be so nice and shady and the same time. Also remember that life is mainly gray, black or white are the colors of the extreme that at special occasions can show up.

Honestly, That blog should be short because it’s not me who is going to tell you how to make yourself happy and lively. It’s you who should think how can you make your life easier and better 😉 😀

Any ideas? 😉 😀

Don’t force it, you will find the right person anyway

We have to accept the fact that we are different human beings. We can’t change it or we can’t change each other by anyway possible.

Leaving our beloved ones that we once thought that’s the person we are going to spend our lives together no matter what. Losing a friend due to different personalities or point of views. As we are different, we live our lives different as well too and that’s not the problem yet. The real problem is when we force ourselves to be with the wrong person or when we try to fix them. Let’s get this straight, we can’t change people, events and the life course might be, but humans can’t change it’s other. It’s like fire against fire, both can’t put off each other, but different elements like water and fire can. Some people don’t even change at all, even if people change it might be late and their actions might not.

The idea I am trying to say that yes it might be hard to change but the earlier to figure out how to change to the better person we are it’s the better it can be. Don’t ever let someone label you or say you are something you are not, because unless you feel that thing and know for a fact that it’s true, it’s never true. People’s strongest weapon of hurting people is their tongue and the weakest spot to hit someone to bleeding is their faith in themselves. As soon as kit’s gone, it’s from the hardest thing to get back and start being confident again. You can go places and know it for a fact, just don’t let the person you are to stop you, you are different yes and be proud in anyway you are different, and if you think it’s not how you want yourself to be, easy! Try to be the best 😉

One more thing, don’t ever force a relationship, or a friendship. It won’t only be the hardest way to live it, if you ever got the chance too, it might cause damage more than healing and building up. Know for a fact that people are like different roses in a field, find you match and go with it. 🙂

Have you ever tried to fix a relationship or a friendship with someone and it was more or pain than support ??

There is nothing called “wasted time”

As I’ve finished my exams, I’d like to say that during my exams I did a lot of stuff that anyone would say about it ” a waste of time”, but I don’t.  Because in those minutes or hours I learnt something new from watching a TV or relaxed while just sitting. All of these stuff were nothing near a waste of time. You want to know why?

During my exam examination time, I used to study what I need and spend the rest of the day watching TV shows, sleeping, hanging out or just chilling. I know that sounds crazy, but seriously, what’s the point of studying the same thing over and over again and stress over it. It will give me nothing more than anxiety and worry about the exam. When I watched TV shows and enjoyed my time, that and my stress go away and I didn’t waste my time, I actually learnt new things. Such as languages, I used to watch, English, Turkish and sometimes Italian TV shows and movies. I learnt some words of different languages and now I am trying to apply for an Italian course and willing to actually know the language! Which by the way, might look good on the CV 😉 I mean education of school sure counts and an important thing and experience to have but there are other skills away from the school that needs to be developed and if we stayed only focusing on the school, then we might lose these skills and never be able to have them.

Ones before a teacher of me said that in everything benefit, even games. I actually believe that, anything you do helps you to have better skills. Even sleeping, helps you to focus more and rest you body and mind. However, when everything goes more than it supposed to be, it will have negative impact. Like you can’t study all day, sleep all day, play all day. Imaging your day’s hours as boxes you are trying to fill in and the best is to fill it in with different activities and things to do. So Just fill your day wisely.

Always remember that life is short and whatever limit is there you are the one who made it and you are the one who can break it. Just you. People words are just words that without actions are useless. Be the action and prove that not everything they say is right. You are not old or young to do what you want, as long as it’s legal and doesn’t harm anyone, including you. 🙂

One love is all it needs

Firstly, I’d like to send my prayers to all the victims in every part in the world and always know that it’s never the end. It’s never the finale or the last attack. Be strong the worse is yet to come.

I’ve always learned in my life to wish for the best and expect the worse. That doesn’t mean that after every bad thing happened I just say that this is what I expected and have nothing else to do. I actually think of a way to turn from the disaster and celebration and a moment of pride and legendary. As an example of that the One Love Manchester Concert. Although it was a compensation for the concert that had the attack, I think that was a good move and a very kind one, it made a lot happy not only the people who attended the concert but also the victims who felt the love and care of the people for donating and caring for them and helping them ❤

One of the quotes that I believe at is that in every bad there is good. We don’t know what the future holds and honestly, if we knew we would have chosen not to know and let it be. What I want to say is that whatever happened either good or bad is what drove you to that point and if you thought about it a little more, you would find out that you actually had nothing to do except this and that whatever you did was your best option at the time. Even if what happened was bad, just have patience and you will find out the good of it later. Life is like the Yang Yong, where there is black, there is white. Remember that and keep it in your mind. Sometimes in my darkest times, when I think of that thought I feel way better and it renews the hope in me and keeps me fighting.

Hate can’t go away, it’s a main factor in life that without it there is no life. That doesn’t mean that it can’t be reduced or controlled, all it needs just it’s Yong, love. Life drove us apart and made us busy in our own paths and lives. However, we still meet and become one strong hand, united with love. Love doesn’t have to be shown just when a misery happens, it should be shown in every day life, with your family, friends, co-workers, people in the street. Love was never just a word, it’s an act that needs to be taken.. 🙂

Who Run The World?! You!

In the past few years I’ve learned that people and mainly the circumstances makes us go in different paths that we don’t like or weren’t expected.

Let me make my point clearer. For example, if a person running late in cash and want to buy a new sofa, he might buy a cheap sofa because that’s what he can afford. However, he might  actually wait a little more until he gets more money and buy the sofa he wants. You don’t have to be forced to do something you don’t want or because you can’t make it. There is nothing called impossible. I consider it a word that we just say at anything, although if we actually tried a little harder we might make miracles and dreams come true.

I know my words are repetitive and said zillions of times before, but have you ever thought actually about it? This blog is about making you think further about it. How many decisions you’ve made in your life that you thought later on “ I could’ve done better than this if I just thought more or waited..” It might not be out of regret but maybe that you just want to be better, which is what everyone would love to be. Just not because you want to be better so you do anything whether it’s good or bad.  There is nothing called that anything is possible to reach what you want, because it doesn’t matter what you reach you past is there and will always be there and will haunt you back with its memories so try always to keep it with nice clean ones, so you don’t regret it later.

Try always to keep the world at your command. I know that sounds crazy but I mean try instead of making people and conditions work you out for them and their benefit, you work them for yours, in a good way though without any harm to you or them. As I said, try always to make your past clean so, it doesn’t haunt you later. Remember that the key to success is power and power comes from self-confidence, having faith and not to give up and a tip from me try to play it fairly as much as you can you can be able to have an absolute power and try to be patient 😉 😀

I hope my words weren’t so boring or said before and now please after you close this blog or before you sleep tonight, close your eyes for a moment and try to think deeply about it, it might actually help 😉 😀
