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

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€

Any ideas? ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€

A moment of thinking…

Have you ever stopped for a moment and started thinking over and over about the events in your life and how your journey up to her has been a long way along? I did and I do all the time, mostly searching for answers to questions that I sometimes don’t know. Sounds weird, right? ๐Ÿ˜€

What I meant by questions I don’t know are those that I ask myself when I feel sad or happy for no reason. Those times when you know there is something which is really good or really bad but you don’t know. However, from the most important questions I always ask myself is ย ” Do I regret anything I’ve done in my life so far?” I always search for the answer “No”. ย I always search my life events and search for what might be better if changed, what might I’ve done to make things better. It doesn’t matter how hard I think of better options I know that the best thing to do is not to regret anything I’ve done. Because firstly, Regret won’t make me feel any better and secondly, I had nothing else to do at the time that might made the situation better, and without those actions I might never be here now writing this blog..

Having a moment of thinking does’t mean only questions. Sometimes, I just… think. I just replay my day before I sleep and think of the people and events I was surrounded by today. I don’t mean ย by that to annoy myself or think of the negative things that happened today, I always either think of the good things or how not to make those negative things happened today happen again. I don’t mean by thinking before sleeping “Over thinking”. I actually don’t believe in over thinking and that your brain do them on it’s own. No, every thing happens in this word s a reflection of another action or decision, we don’t see them or relate them but they are. If you over think before you sleep then probably your body is tired or that something happened today that upset ย you and that’s the reaction your brain does to express the pain. I do get them sometimes but I always try ย to replace them with a happy memory or a beautiful song that I like.

That doesn’t mean that I am a happy person who lives in a pink bubbly world, because I am not ๐Ÿ˜€ I also get upset and sad a loooooot of times! But I just say so what! It’s not the end of the world, it will move on! However, that doesn’t mean to drop the subject. I mean we all got goals and believes that we fight for in this life and that’s what mostly brings us the pain of failing and sadness. Don’t give up fighting! Just don’t be sad or moron for too long because you might lose a lot more than you win.

What are your moments of thinking too? ๐Ÿ˜€

Keep sharing the +ve vibes!

Being sad and negative about most of things in your life is really fine, but at the end of the day we shouldย be satisfied with who we are and what we do. It’s either this or we won’t have a life!

Just wait for a sec. and think. Do you really like the way things are? If yes then you should be really thankful because not a lot have such a blessing. But if not, also be fine too because that’s another blessing! I know that might sound weird but I have strong believes that when you are in a hard situation, it’s not the time to be sad and angry on anyone including yourself. It’s a bitter sweet challenge, that if you handled it good and right, then you actually passed a hard test in your life that ones again if it happens, you will know very well that it can’t stop or annoy you!

Therefore, I try always to be positive about everything in my life. Even in the hardest, worst situations. Sometimes, my family and friends say that I don’t have feelings that even in the worst, saddest situations I still laugh, and make jokes. But that’s not because I am weird or empty as some of you might think as my family. It’s my way to make me and everyone one around just out of their sadness or anger so we can find a solution easily. ย Well, yeah I actually keep my anger and sadness in myself and try to keep it away really hard enough that whenever I am alone I start all the negative thinking. So, I found that if I kept that energy inside me for sometime, it will be hard so I start thinking positive and get rid of that non needed energy by listening to music, playing it, drawing, coloring, sports. Just anything to help me get my mind clear and focused on the positives and solutions.

More importantly is to not only shower yourself with all the +ve energy but also shower other people with it too! Believe me, if you want a relaxing, positive working area or a peaceful family reunion is really hard because we are all humans and we all have our pains andย sorrows. So the only way to make everything positive is creating a huge field of happiness and energy that keeps everyone instead of cursing the day they got employed at, they just enjoy what they are doing at least :D. Try to make out of that boring same conversations meeting to a energetic, enthusiastic place of chit chatting and laughs ๐Ÿ˜€

Just keep sharing the positive energy not only with you soul but also with everybody around you! Remember! Sharing is caring ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€

What do you do to get rid of the negative energy you have? ๐Ÿ˜€

The Strategy of New Experiences

Who doesn’t get bored of our daily routine? I’ve been always stuck in the routine and as any student life, it’s really hard to get out of this routine cycle. However, I kind of developed this idea of trying new stuff and I actually loved it!

I started from simple way of changes to kind of major ones. From physical changes up to actually internal changes. ย For example, I started tasting new food that I’ve always said that I’ll never try and that I hate. I told myself that how can I hate something, at least when someone asks my for the reason I would have an answer. Therefore, I decided to taste food I’ve never even bothered to try before, to actually find out that I was completely wrong to ignore it and hate some of it. Even my way of living, I started to try being healthier and try going to the gym and try sports. Believe me! If you asked anyone about me last year, especially my mum, they would say that I was so lazy! Especially at holidays and weekends. I was like hold on a minute, if I am actually lazy to fetch the remote control from the coffee table in front of me, then what am I going to do when I am an adult with dozens of responsibilities? How can I even get to move to get these responsibilities and my life on track? I even decided to change my hair style that I’ve been having for as long as I rememberย and even ended up dying my hair. Well at least now when someone asks about dying their hair I would have an experience to share and know from it.

Those were the simple stuff. Let’s get really to the part of me changing? I started to laugh more, talk more, socialize more. I am no longer shy or get angry and upset easily as I used to be 2 years ago I guess. I realized that I want to survive and success this life I should have both the white and black side and control which part is shown for who, when and where. I understood that if I feared strangers and people in general from now, I won’t achieve my dream of at least a successful career life later on life. I won’t simply enjoy my life the way I dream of. I started reading more, learning more. I started to focus more on my targets and aims. And learning can’t come without trying, making mistakes and learning from them. That’s why trying new stuff has became a main target in my life. I started to care more about leaning new languages and cultures. I want to feel engaged in every way that is useful and not harming myself in a stupid way or a kind of a selfish, irresponsible one. ย It’s only one life to live, laugh and enjoy.

Therefore, when you have the chance to try something new which is actually harmless. GO ON! Think of your CV and your next time when you speak with your friends or scrolling your photo album. Think of what you might add up to those! ๐Ÿ˜€

What new experiences you wish to have?

You can go places

I’ve read a quote one day that meant that as long as you think then you exist. It doesn’t matter who you are as long as you have a good aim in this life that can make this world a better place or even you a better person. It doesn’t matter how simple this idea as long as you have it, believe in it and go on! Do it!

Don’t let anyone stop you from reaching your goal. I mean can we live without a goal to run after? Imagine if you don’t, what will you think of doing when you wake up in the morning? Believe me, if you actually reached to the limit that you have nothing to achieve or think of you will find this life so boring that doesn’t deserve to be lived. Always find yourself what makes you reach the next step, next level.

As long as you are breathing, have faith that you still can do something, anything. Who knows? Maybe that thing is that star that we put on top of the Christmas Tree to make it complete and shiny. It doesn’t matter how old are you, if you are living in a castle or a small room somewhere. Are you breathing? Awesome! Now let’s do something to make me live happier and better.

To get to motion and do something you need to actually believe in yourself that you can do it. Because if you lost hope then nothing will happen, you will actually achieve nothing, because you will also have no hope in anything in life if you lost of your existence already. So, what do you think? Lose hope or give it a shot? Giving up isn’t a word to be said, it’s a feeling of failing and the strong feeling of actually doing nothing. Because if you say you gave up but you still go to work, eat, drink and want to survive then you obviously didn’t give up living. SO! Don’t give up already! ๐Ÿ˜€

Now, Part 3. Now, you have faith, ready to be happy and successful more than ever, because you deserve it, Let’s have a deal of some rules and words to keep in mind. Never ever listen to haters or jealous people who all they care for is letting everyone sad, upset and all the time behind them. You know you can do it and you will do it! Tried 100 times and failed? So what! Numbers are infinite! ๐Ÿ˜€ Try for the 101 time 102.. Tried too much and a professional person said that you actually can’t or you found out that this isn’t convenient for you and just a waste of time. Okay then, why giving up? Why getting upset? Maybe there is something else you are better at! Keep searching until you find it ๐Ÿ˜€

At the end of the day, believe that you can do it! You can go places. High ones, maybe even until you reach the stars ๐Ÿ™‚

Have you ever regretted giving up? How?

Never regret searching for the fun

Having a busy life in anyways doesn’t mean that you should be engrossed in this life all the time. You deserve that sweet little moments to restore yourself and energy.

How many times have we arranged plans and never happened? How many time we had that deal on the group chat of hanging out and ended up the whole group watching TV, saying ” Sorry guys! But new plans came up!. Whatever plans came up wouldn’t be better than enjoying yourself in anyway, even if it meant meeting your friends at the next door ice cream shop or park, because you are too lazy to enjoy the night somewhere else that needs a ride and wearing something else rather than your sweatpants or pajamas.

You might be having all the work or study to do and you are actually squeezed between all your assignments until you nearly forget that you are human being who needs to laugh , feel and enjoy. I am planning to get into the business world. Most of you off course know what that means! Studying 24/7, going to night classes and majoring in many stuff and all of that is the start yet, I didn’t completely start working yet. In working life as a business lady means that all the time online working, planning ready for any crises to happen. However, that will never make from me a robot as I’ve always been. I am finishing my IGCSE these two years with 11 subjects to study for my last 2 years in secondary education and preparing for my AS and Uni. In addition to other courses and sometimes working. And I still try my best come online here, write what I want and feel. I go out frequently and have big plans to travel the world when I start working and planning my own life ( I might write about my plans in achieving dreams that might benefit you sometime). When I say that to some people who are in the same way as me or already in the industry, they say it’s insane and that I am gonna fail. Let’s say I simply have faith and whatever the outcome was and I enjoyed it or learnt from it, I’ll never regret it, but I will actually praise it and tell the story to other generations later :D.

What I am trying to say is that doing whatever you want that makes you happy and smiling, is never a crime and never say ” I could’ve done that instead of wasting time out” because simply you didn’t waste time at all. Instead of blaming yourself, search for a way to fix things and pay for your moments of joy. If I’ve ever learnt anything in this life, is that everything has a cost to be paid. And remember, if your mind made you pick that choice, then know that it needed it so did your body. Enjoy the moment and search for what makes it the best moment ever all the time. It’s that simple! It’s destiny!

Have you ever regretted a moment of joy that was the best thing you have ever had and didn’t ruin anything? ๐Ÿ˜€

Do we actually search for troubles?

It doesn’t matter who we are or how our life goes. It doesn’t matter if we are really rich or poor, hard workers or lazy, have such an awesome life and people we love or alone broken and sad. Even if we have no troubles, we will still search for the trouble.

That’s actually what keeps our life and minds healthy, worry. I’ve had some friends and relatives who told me ones that if they don’t have an enemy or troubles, they can’t enjoy living. I actually agree to the concept that we should have at least have one thing to keep us sad or a goal to stress over to reach. That way we can balance our emotions, because if we reached to the max limit or satisfactory in our lives, we will have no reason to wake up the next morning.

However, as I mentioned above the reason for this to keep us running after a goal in our lives, to balance our emotions not to live the drama life or the life of celebration 24/7. Because both ways of maximum happiness or sadness will lead to an end which might be going crazy or even death.

Therefore, I don’t agree with people who just keeps on putting pressure on themselves just to keep their mind busy and eyes red of less sleep or crying. I am a person who admires the smile, which I guess that’s a gift from god. I don’t like bring sad or angry for more than it needs. I don’t keep running the movie of what incident that happened today in front of my eyes for the next week so every time I remember I get more angry or sad. Off course I don’t forget the lesson I learnt that day, but still I don’t make a list of enemies who I plan for getting rid of them day and night. I believe that we all deserve a balanced satisfying life. Neither by the laughing or crying all the time. Honestly, I get better use of that time I cry at by finding solution to make me less cry ๐Ÿ˜‰

Like I remember the last time I’ve shed a tear was 2 years ago. I don’t even remember the reason as much as I learnt the lesson. I learnt that at this point it’s either I can take responsibility of my decision and learn to depend on myself more than anything or anyone in this life or I will always stay helpless and cry. I still up till now remember that lesson as many others, and since that time instead or cursing my luck and crying I remember that one time I promised myself to take responsibility and that in every bad thing there’s a hidden good thing in the future. Because at the end of the day, our choice and paths are what drive us to where we are. As the famous quote says ” Instead of cursing darkness, light a candle” ๐Ÿ™‚

Remember that as much as you cry you have to laugh. We all want that life of no black hearts and hate, but we won’t find this one until we stop worrying more than living. Let’s start by ourselves and make our lives easier than it ever was. ๐Ÿ˜‰

What’s the most important lesson you’ve ever learnt in life?

Do you actually search for troubles? Think of this one deeply ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€

Free yourself

We are all prisoners of our busy lives. But do we really want to stay prisoners? Can we have our freedom back?

I know that if we answered yes to the questions above means destroying at least a small part of our lives and causing damage to our career life or so on. But we want to say no, don’t we? Therefore, I think that being busy and having such a crazy life with different meanings can get us to the max of our energy. I’ve always respected the idea of working life or busy social life and have been following yet since I was a child. However, as I grow up I realized that this much respect can lead us to the edge of the cliff.

I thought about the idea of achieving status, success and happy life. Those are the profit of all the sad and stressed nights we live. They come in the end true, but they come late. So let’s take a second and think of our day. How it goes? If you are in that young age then I am pretty sure that your day goes with at least one problem. That’s what makes life cool and makes the adrenaline flow in our body. However, sometimes we are not pleased with the sense. So! I thought of controlling this sense or to be more specific make this sense flow of happiness if needed. Off course stress needed and anger, actually without them we might get crazy because we need to always balance our emotions. But we need to balance it, nit crying or shouting 24/7.

I’ve always loved new experiences, surprises, knowing new people. Sometimes, fulfilling this need can be hard or even impossible due to whatever prison I am at if work of education. I tried always to find space for it anyway. Like I might be having exam tomorrow but there’s a new movie to watch. In this case I plan my studying hours for the day and make space for time to watch that movie, because I know that if I didn’t do that I would be upset and I won’t do good in the exam. C’est La Vie! You plan your life for working, family, friends but make sure that you always get out of that prison of the life cycle. People get weaker and worse if left in prisons for so long ๐Ÿ˜‰

How do you free yourself from your prison? ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€

You are the only one who owns your remote control

We are controlled by so many things and human being, that’s a fact! Since birth we are controlled by our nationality, type, and so on. Somethings can be changed but some don’t.

Off course sometimes people should control us as if we are sick, angry, the boss at work, the teacher at school and so on. That’s completely acceptable, but that control also extend to limits. For example, not because you are working for someone you can let them scream at your face or order you to do something not related to your job and you do it, scared to be fired. You might actually do it but because you want to do it or as a favor but not as an obligatory order. That’s completely understood because at that time it’s you who made the choice. But you don’t have to be a slave to keep your job! I mean there are other jobs that’s not the end of the world. Even if there aren’t, would you really respect yourself when you look in the mirror? Will you accept seeing you controlled and obligated to do something you don’t want to do just to have money or high rank??

Look, reaching your goal either money, power or even someone doesn’t require you to scarify so much of your pride. If there is something I learnt in this life is that if you let your pride and respect go then nothing will go right. Believe me whatever you want all you have to do is to work hard to get as long as you can, keeping yourself safe and happy, if it’s actually meant to you and your destiny then you will have it no matter what. That’s how life goes anyway. Before doing anything or taking any decision always think of what might happen after it, if it’s good or bad and you can take it’s responsibility.

When I say control I know that we should be controlled but always to a limit. Always to the way we want to be controlled. More importantly, is that what control you even if by your own choice never let it ruin you or your life because it did that means bad obsession and you have to let go of it before it destroys you. Remember always that we are the best to make mistakes :D. We are human beings not angels or prophets or even anything near that perfection. However, we are not devils too but if you kept on doing the mistakes and didn’t correct it, that’s how we become devils and fall in a hole full of pain and sins.

Did you even get rid of something controlling you wrongly? What was it?? And what you did?? ๐Ÿ˜€

Surround yourself with happy thing (maybe people sometimes)

I know that the title seems weird (not the first time though) but as they say don’t judge a blog by it’s title :D. we all have that mood when we are so pissed off, sometimes even with no reason. Some of us call their beloved ones to tell them what’s wrong. Lately, I found that might not be the best solutions.

I figured out that those people we call, it doesn’t matter how much they love you or you love them, are also humans who have troubles and pissed just like you. If they love you much they would listen to you but that might make them more sad or annoyed but they won’t tell you. Others will shut you or excuse for anything just to hang the phone up. Therefore, the best thing is to keep each other’s negative energy and anger separated.

So I said to myselfย wait a minute.. If people can’t help (most of the time), then what about things? ย What about my cheer up playlist? Happy Movie list? ๐Ÿ˜€

I started keeping my favorite music in a place that whenever I want it I get it, like phone USB, and so on. I started organizing my Movie CDs of folders on PC by my favorite, happy ones first. Same with my closet, accessories, BOOKS! Those are my REAL escape. I also started collection pillows and pillow cases. I know that you might think I am a weirdo now, but i found that when I sleep of sit with a comfy pillow or favorite pillow with it’s case beside my kicking it, sleeping on it, relaxes me so much :D. Perfumes as well proved to change moods. So I always try to buy those perfumes that when I sniff them I feel like ” THAT’S THE ONE!” :D.

To sum up the tips that blog has on how to basically make yourself happy or at least satisfied:

  • Music
  • Movies
  • Books
  • TV Shows
  • Favorite Clothes, pillows, perfumes and so on.
  • Don’t bother people because they will never care for you as you do ๐Ÿ˜‰

Any other tips :D?? I’d love to know as well as everyone else ๐Ÿ˜€
