One wish

If while shopping for the new year’s you passed by an antique shop and found an old lamp that you liked, then you bought it. After going home you tried to clean the dust on it and a genie came out of the lamp and asked you to wish one wish, only one. What would you wish?

(P.S. wishing to have more than one wish is not allowed 😀 )

For me, I would wish to relive all the moments of happiness that I lived for my first things, like my first mobile phone, yeah I am old enough that when i was a child mobile phones weren’t that easy to get one as a child, or my first big toy or my first trip with my family, or my first time I went to the beach. More and more, countless moments that as I grew up, they started to fad. the feeling for anything new meant a new start that would mean more responsibility or actually being an adult. Like my first day at university. I got the university I want, I was so happy but then I remembered that it’s just the start for something bigger. Life would never be easy as it used to be.

But the saddest part? That somehow with all the stress or new planning for life ahead I forgot along how to be that happy. Purely happy, just like a child. True, I learned how to be differently happy like learning new things or even being behind the wheel for the first time, yeah I like cars. That’s a different kind of happiness, maybe adulthood happiness, the one that comes with it’s worried or danger. It felt and tasted differently but never like the careless happiness of childhood.

What are you wishes? Share them below in the comments, maybe you can find you wish-mate.

Happy New Year Everyone! Wish this year brings you that happiness, success that you want and get you closer with who you love.

Always welcomed to the corner,

Gave up asking for it

By “it”, I mean love, friendship, kindness, happiness, or even sadness. It’s like they are no longer things that can just happen or have. Even those are now valuable currencies that you have to work for to get like money or anything in life.

Now when my parents or elder people talk about the past and how things where. Like how good friends they had or how happy they were with low money and simple jobs, they just as any fictional story I have ever read. Sometimes I even laugh at how we have reached these days. Laugh with a crying heart.

Now to have friend you have to be really nice, really friendly and it doesn’t matter how good friends or even how “besties” you are, don’t give then your secret or at least not all of it because life and people are no longer as kind and as trustworthy as we hear or read or watch. Life and dreams aren’t the same thing. You wish for true love and you find yourself in a weird relationship that you call love but it’s everything else other than that. You try to trust that one friend, just one not even group as we see in movies and that one person  makes you face the worst surprise of your life.

When I list those facts to myself or my mum for example, she calls me cold. The idea is that I have to be like that. I have not to trust people with my secrets or be too caring because I am not actually cold, I am just trying to protect myself from heart-breaking or an un smiley face. Unfortunately, that’s what life has taught me. I would never wish for such a life, such an act. But that’s how the drama of life goes. Who changed the rules who made people actors with masks and hidden hearts? No one really knows. Maybe us, maybe wars, maybe situations and conditions people until now passed by. Maybe all of them.

I am just wishing one day the rules would change again and maybe I would be telling my children or even grandchildren about how happy easy life I had and hopefully they won’t laugh with a crying heart like me now. I can’t lose hope after all. You too don’t 🙂

Those little things…

Do you ever listen to a song and wish if it was actually thing to touch and feel, not just to listen to like keeping it? Or look at the sky one night when the breeze hits your face lovingly and wish that you would keep that feeling, that memory forever?

It’s those little things that makes from life a great place to live at, even if just for a moment. Those little details in your lover or family. They might seem useless,or even a type of imperfection, but it stays the thing that makes from them the most perfect person on this land. Things that you and only you would understand, smile at when noticing them and enjoy them as if they are the last moments of your before your go out of breath.

They sometimes can be a part of the past. A feelings, a sound, a touch, a smell or even a look. Something that makes you remember someone or a moment that automatically draws a smile on your face or bring tears to your eyes. It either re opens wounds or heal them. When this moment comes it might be seconds but our mind makes them feel like a year or even years.

I always wish those moments to overwhelm me, to take me with them and to not leave me to the painful reality. Isn’t it injustice? They take us to a beautiful moment and then someone call us to bring us to reality. It might be injustice but at least we have them at our hard times, right?

Therefore, enjoy the moment! Reality one even as when they come as a memory later, they would be as strong as ever to break you free from the world for seconds. The painful ones and the happy ones. I can hear you asking about the painful ones, why keeping them?! 😀 The answer is that pain can sometimes remind us that we passed harder times before and we can pass those ones too! 😉

Enjoy life guys! this moment in a sec would be a memory and it only be lived ones but remembered forever! How do you want to remember it, it’s up to you 😉

Take care: False alarm

Yes, what you read up there is right. You are getting a false alarm. That alarm is your feelings, your wrong ones.

Not because someone says a word or two nice then that person is falling in love with you now, or because someone is shouting at your face means that they hate you. Wrong guesses and especially in feelings, can lead to disasters endings. Early judging can be one of the reasons that might not lead you to happy endings. In my point of view I guess people are like chameleons. We change our colors according to the situation to protect ourselves. Therefore, I believe that first impressions can be false 99% of the time. Therefore, keep the alarm activated for false feelings that you might develop.

However, we might feel the wrong way not only on first meetings, or people might not color themselves for protection. They might not protect themselves but maybe others, the people they love and care about. Also in that case activate your alarm, because at that specific moment they would be needing you the most. You might even lose them if you believed, because it’s the test. It’s the test to see if you care for each other or not.

Third type of false feelings alarms are those alarms that we get as a reflex of our original feelings. As for being angry instead of sad. That kinds of feelings can burn everything to the ground. Make you lose everything. It’s like as if you go onto a feelings coma that when you wake up from it, you will find that with your bare hands you turned everything to just  shattered memories that even if you try to fix, it would be too late. You would be praying for a miracle to get your life to what was it before everything. You would be wishing to go back with time and stop yourself before being an idiot and destroy everything.

After all, we are humans. We would prefer our happiness and joy more than anything that we might turn that alarm off by our own will. We would want us to still feel these feelings even when we know it’s am lie. We would want to smile and feel happy a few more times, before we wake up. Before the dream turns into a nightmare. That might be one of the hardest choices you might make in your life. If you are gonna make it, just please think of what will happen when you wake up first. Know that you can’t stay sleeping forever.

Lastly, how could you overcome your wrong feelings?

There is only one end

Have you ever thought about the after ends? Lately I’ve been thinking about all the starts that have happened to me after ends. The new fresh starts that I had just when I said that’s it, it’s the definitely the end.

When things end, it’s usually the end of a chapter in our lives but not the end of the book. Even nature is the same. When a plant dies ,for example, it’s the start for a new life of another plant. Like how many times have you cried about ending a relationship or a friendship, when it was actually the fresh start of a new one? How many times when you got to leave a job or school and you thought that’s it, I can’t achieve my dreams anymore, it was actually the start of a new career or future that you have never thought of?

We are the ones who end things ourselves, things don’t end on their own. the end is when we lose hope, when we stop in our places convinced it’s the end. Therefore, if you want new starts, don’t stop. Believe in yourself and in your dreams, heart and thoughts. Don’t just let go of it that easy just because it just ended, or even if it ended don’t stay home mourning, if you want a new start, then go on! Get yourself a fresh start.

I know that for some people would be hard to start over after a hard experience, but just know that we can’t stop breathing or stop the cycle of our lives to stop. Therefore, either starting now or later, you will start again from some point. The idea here is that the earlier you start, the faster you develop and get over your aches. Don’t judge yourself or punish it for wrong choices or decisions you might have taken in the past, and don’t forget them either. Actually think of them but think of them as shadows of the past. Lessons learnt, without their ache. In another way, think of them, but don’t feel the. Don’t feel the pain again when you didn’t get into your dream job or college, when you broke up with someone who you thought that this person is the one. You felt it once, lived it ones. Don’t you think it’s enough tears already? Isn’t it time to move on and instead of regretting how it ended, think of how you can make a new start of it. Applying to other jobs with other fields that you might be interested at, maybe even better at them than the other one?

Think of the happy ending. The real one, the one that is actually the end of the book. The full picture. Every time you end a chapter, look forward to the end of the book. The end that will keep you satisfied. The success, the happiness, the love. 🙂

What’s your ideas of the book ending 😉 :D?

Love?

Well, that might be the first time to right about love, maybe even the first time to think of it as a real thing that exist in life. Just to be clear, it’s not because I am falling in love :D, let’s say just that it’s something that because of the fantasies that I read and watched about I nearly believed that it doesn’t actually exists. I jut want to post it because I feel that it might guide someone, who knows :D. After all it’s all my point of view that yours might be completely different, which is completely awesome 😉 :D.

I’ve always thought of Love as weakness or a big lie and I still think the same actually but in a different way as I grew up. Love is weakness towards the person you love, it’s that you might have to give up everything for the person that stole your love out of you. That person stole your heart yes, but somehow, it seems so right that it’s hardly a theft. Love can be the biggest lie we might live if it’s only for entertainment, if we judged it before it even starts or made it ourselves. It can be a lie if it was more than love, if it was fantasy. Love has no questions or thoughts. Although I jus said that love is weakness but that weakness make you weak for your beloved ones but stronger than a hurricane and destructive, worse than a storm if it had anything wrong to do with your other half. That strength is weird enough, for me, I’ve never knew how powerful it is, but I am sure it’s stronger than the strongest thing on earth. The reason of it for me too is still unknown, maybe because you feel full that you have your other half. 

Real love is something different and weirdly nice, you will feel that one time  or twice if you are that lucky! Love is supposed to be the relaxation and simplicity, it’s supposed to show the best of you, the glory that is buried deeply in you. True that it sometimes deserves the fight, but it’s supposed to be flowing like water. It’s when you don’t have to hold a gun to keep it there or make plans to keep the person you love beside you.

From my point of view, the worst thing ever is the conspiracy that someone should be with us just because we love them, although they don’t feel the same, or be with someone who loves us but we don’t. The idea of love is that both sides, trust, respect and be passionate for each other. If it’s anything other than that, then good luck next time because that’s not love and you are just making things worse for you and the others. 

True love stories for me is nothing like what’s in novels or movies, although it’s a nice dream though that I would be happy to happen :D, but the ones that when two old grandparents sit there and tell. That’s true love , because love is trust and loyalty that might not happen at the start most of the times but if they passed everything together to that age and still smile when they look or touch to each other then who needs more than that! Someone to trust and be happy with and keep each other safe.

Love is not just a word and it doesn’t happen in just a night and after all, it’s all destinies that we never can change. You might actually fall in love with the last person you can expect to even look at their face, meet at the last place you can expect or even that person can be so close that you might be that shocked when you guys actually fall in love 😉 😀

The most important thing I want to say here is that never even mix up liking someone with loving. Because liking might happen everyday, but love is the rarest and doesn’t even happen to everyone.

It’s weird that I am even posting this because believe me, I’ve never thought about that topic or maybe thought yes, but for other people or just to think of it nothing more. Just take care of yourself, where is your heart taking you, because it might take you to dark places that you might regret visiting later and maybe never getting out of it. That’s my main goal of this after all. 🙂

So! How did you fall in love 😉 :D?

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.. 🙂

Fake Human Relations war

We all try to keep everyone satisfied. We try to keep everyone by our side. Unfortunately, that’s impossible.

For me it looks like a war. Sometimes I sit by myself thinking, why can’t everything be easy?? Why can’t we just be true and happy?? 

Human nature is greedy. We technically want everything for the minimum loss. That can’t happen because we can’t have everything. Same with people. We want everyone to be our friend. We want that perfect boyfriend/girlfriend. We want those awesome parents. We want those ideal people we see in movies and tv shows. But basically, they don’t exist. We expect much that makes us hardly accept the truth.

And when I said in the title ” Fake Human Relations War” I meant it. Because if the relation is true there won’t be a war. I mean by war when you do everything to make this relationship works or to stay friends. If that relation is true you won’t have to do anything to survive it. 

Those relationships and friendships are costly too. I don’t mean costly as “money” I mean in “emotions” “pressure”. They keep us doing the maths all the time and thinking about our next action or word hundreds of times before actually doing them. That makes so much pressure on our feelings, emotions and sometimes they can cost us our jobs, other people who truly love us, and more awesome physical things..

Honestly, don’t run after someone you want. The person who loves you so much and wants you will try everything to reach you, he will help you when u need it without asking the help. He will forgive you most of the time. Moreover, you will have a free relationship or friendship with no hate or calculations of your actions and it will be fun! 

Don’t search for perfection. Search for peace, love and more importantly happiness 🙂

Be calm no matter what 

Calm is a word of peace and happiniess. Who doesn’t want to live calm ?? I think non !

With all the stress we are exposed to everyday, the stress of living is getting more and more everyday and if you didn’t stay calm it will affect your own life that you are stressed about. The question here is How ??

It’s hard to stay calm around such a missy situation but believe me what makes it worse is stressing. So try always to focus of the solution of any problem stop regretting and blaming. When you have the urge to cry for example, cry ! Yes cry. Don’t say that no I am strong and so on. You are strong that’s true but you are a human with a limit and feelings also remember that. 

Try to have a holiday from everything once in a while (even from your phone). So you can empty yourself from all the bad things and stress you passed through so far and continue in your full power. 

Don’t stress yourself for someone. Remember that it’s your life that your living not people’s. It also happens one time so enjoy it to max. However, live as if you live forever and work as if you die tomorrow.

Keep only positive vibes around you. That’s the key. Don’t let anything or anyone take you down. 

Finally, enjoy sticking to the people who care for you and love you and you have the same feelings for them. Keep only the happy things surround you. And make your choices wisely and what makes you satisfied.

Search for fun

Vacation is about to be over and school is around the corner. So I decided to seek for some fun even if it’s just simple thing or people call it silly.


I am going to year 11 and I still play those  video games like delicious Emily and dinner dash 😀 sounds silly I know but believe me this is from the stuff that makes me Happy.

I also read some sweet books before sleeping. It doesn’t have to be informative books or reading it for gaining information or sad story. Offcourse it’s a good thing but sometimes it makes you not interested in completing it. So I started reading sweet books that have some good words to learn and takes me to another world, giving me the chance to forget all that I passed by the whole day.

Most important is music ! Yup ! Music is my soul medication actually – that’s how I call it- sometimes I create a world that I wish I could live in real life and make stories in my imagination but I enjoy it as it maybe seem wierd I know 😀

Don’t give up a source that gives you happiness. Don’t care for who call it silly or wasting time. As long as it makes you happy then it’s not a waste of time, it’s not silly and worth doing it even once in a while 🙂
