The buried glory

I am that kind of person who gets impressed by the hidden beauty or nice surprises. However, I’ve discovered that surprises and beauty can not only in objects or birthday present but people too has a lot hidden. That’s what impresses me most though.

What does people hide? Well, we all have our own secrets. Our own hidden hobbies, so on. Some of these can be pleasant and some can be really unsatisfying. Some of these also can be hidden by our own choice and some can be there but we just don’t know about it. Let’s just talk about the pleasant, hidden ones by our own will.

For example, I think I can do a lot of stuff. Like I love presentations, photographing, singing, I love thinking of new ideas and go after them to make them done, etc. Although people says that I am not good at them much but others say that I am better than I think I am. I am not afraid of people’s numbers or going on stage or getting to know people or talk to strangers when I can. Not everyone like me and that’s what makes from us all special people. I like debating and discussing topics. The problem is that, I never had the chance. Even if I had it, the conditions never helped me to take it or prove what I have inside me. When I think of it I feel like I had a hidden glory, a buried one inside me that is full of dust and all I want is to blow that dust and make it shine and out to the people. In other words, I want to show it.

Sometimes I don’t have the chance because of foolish thinking of me that I will never make it, other times it’s because f I took the chance it might affect others not only me. But what’s most often is that I am not even allowed the chance. Don’t get me wrong, I try my best for what I want and once I want something which is not going to be a problem or cause any kind of injustice I do all I can to get it. Well, as an example, my mum sometimes says that I don’t fight enough for it but I am sure that I would have done all I can to get it. The difference is that mum wasn’t there to see it.

Just with every time I don’t get the chance or get stopped for any kind of reason I believe that one day when I get the chance nothing is going to stop. I promise myself that I might not given the opportunity to do what I like in my childhood or old years for different reasons but I will never allow that to happen again. I promise myself that I won’t let anyone or anything stop me from being who I want to be. From shinning. I still wonder about each one of your glories. I wonder in what way will you shine, will the world shine. I am almost 17 but I will still always look at people and the world around me like a 5 years old kid who can’t wait for people to leave the room so I can rush to the birthday gift and rip them to reveal what’s inside.

Believe in your glory 😉

What do you think is your glory? 😀

The trip of life

When someone talk about getting older or birthdays, for some reason I remember Joey at the show “friends” when he was 30. It’s a really funny , but the idea is that why people hate growing up?

I am sure that most of us like new experiences. Growing up is a new experience! Well, at least you go new places, as you are a kid you go to  the kindergarten and school, then you grow up a little and you go to college and then to university and every time you go to a new stage in your life is an adventure! Remember your feeling on the first day of every stage of this? Even in your life, you first toy, then best friends, the love of your life, engagement, marriage. When you got your driving license, ID or passport.

Time makes from us different kind of people. Like do you remember yourself a year ago? Do you remember your interests? Hair cut? The same mindset?  Now if you looked in the mirror, are you the same person? I am sure your answered would be at least 98% no. Growing up also doesn’t mean you are getting older! Yeah, responsibilities are getting heavier on you and life might not be easier than it used to be. That’s so true. Just think of the bright side! You might now have a friend to lean your back on when things go south. You might have a partner in your life who shares your joy  with you. You have known much more and explored the better part of the world or even just knew things that if you stayed a kid who is living with no responsibilities might never even know that those things exits.

The bottom line is that growing up doesn’t mean death or being old as people think or say. It’s nothing to be ashamed of actually! It’s something impressive that worth the living! Just think of life as a train with stations. You can’t stop the train but you can enjoy your time during the trip! 😉

The science of people’s types

I know that I have talked about people’s type in other blogs, but here I mean the literal meaning of people’s type. Life is like a big garden and people are the roses and plants in it. We are really different and similar at the same time.

For example, there are the sad people who might even regret the day they were born. That type is the type that mostly end up alone or failure. There is the other type opposite to it, the happy one. The one that always try their best to make the best laugh out of any situation, or they are overjoyed to even shed a tear. Those are the main two types of people. There is also the energetic one. That one that even if they are kidnapped and tied to a chair, they won’t stop talking or moving anyway. Those are mostly related to the happy, overjoyed category. There is also the one that lost hope so long ago, the one always believe that whatever they do no point of it. They are living just for the meaning of it, just living. Off course that’s related to the sad one. Obviously, there is the opposite of each type. Like there is the lazy person, the hopeful one and so on. And many many other types, that if you noticed people you will find that they are even infinite. Countless that you may lose count of it.

However, people change. We have our seasons too like roses. We are like nature, we can be so calm a moment but a storm the other moment. We are part of the nature therefore, we are like it. A person can be sad, known to be sad but when they get happy, it can be the best smile you can see on their face. A person can be calm or happy, but when they get made, it’s the worse ever. Just like shells that has pearls, they might look a like from outside or even the same most of the time, but when they reveal the rareness in them that can be the surprise that you never expected. Just take care, because not all surprises are awesome.

Always know that this mix is what keeps us going. What makes from us friends, families and lovers. What keeps us stronger 😉

What is the most type of people that amuse you :D?

You don’t have to master it to do it

How many of us love singing, dancing, drawing well but actually can’t do any of these good enough? At the end of the day, you love them then do them! You don’t have to be an expert to enjoy your heart.

I love singing, writing and drawing. In general. Well, I am not a really good singer, but I do sing when I can or able to. I am writing now as you can see (I am even writing my very own first novel now) and I draw when I feel the urge to.  Loads and loads of things and people tried to stop me from doing these things. These little things makes me feel happy when I am blue. Many people might see it silly or because it’s unprofessional, then it’s a waste of time. And first of these people is even my mother. However, I still do it. I may not be perfect but who is?! I just enjoy it!

Practicing makes you perfect. Therefore, maybe your drawing this time doesn’t look like it’s related to a human being by any chance, but maybe the next one it would be a better portrait 😉 As long as hope and the fire of determination is in your heart, then you can go places. How many people said I can’t and they are now Nobel Prize winners, public figures and more. Even if you didn’t get to be any of those, you at least feel happiness when you hold you pen to write, the mic to sing or the guitar to play. Remember how happy were you when you were child, it was when you had no chains, the chains of the society. Like when you are in a party and you don’t want to dance so you don’t have to look funny or be an embarrassment. That might be true, yeah well no one would like to embarrassed but that doesn’t mean you can’t dance at all. Be yourself, at least with yourself.

My point is that happiness comes from you. You can make yourself the happiest or the saddest person on earth. The simple things count, sometimes even more than the huge things. Don’t let people decide how you would cheer yourself. Free yourself from people’s tongues. And enjoy being silly and happy though, you deserve it, you even need it sometimes 😉 :D.

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?

What are you hiding?

If you have read any of my previous blogs you will find that I most of time believe that there is no black only or white only in life, I believe it’s the same for the human being.

It doesn’t matter if you are clear that you are strong and you feel that strength, there is a little bit of weakness in you. It doesn’t matter if you are the happiest person on earth, there is a side of darkness or sadness in you and vice versa. That’s right, we are not what we want to show. The truth mostly is the opposite. We keep the true side of us hidden most of the time, some people think it’s because it shows weakness of someone and make them easy to be broken by others. However, I think that if we showed the real us that might relax us from the acting or pretending all the time. We will simply be us.

How many times have you read someone wrongly? Like you thought they are really weak and they turned out to be really string or powerful? As I always say, people can’t be read, because knowing someone intentions only works when it’s measured and calculated like in businesses, you can’t know if someone hate or love somebody unless they show it. What if they showed all the love? Then here you go! You read him/her wrongly.

 

When people say that she/he has a lot of faces that doesn’t mean that they are fake for example, well they might be but sometimes it’s meant to protect themselves rather than cheating on people or deceiving them.

My point here is that if you love or hate something or someone show that love or hate before it’s too late. Life is only lived ones, so stop caring about what it looks like and start taking off the mask. At least with your family, friends and beloved ones. If you are meant to be hurt you will be and that’s okay, that’s actually how we learn to protect ourselves.

Can you guess what’s inside the box?

So far, I’ve met a lot of people who would go with “Uhu, I understand you.” Or that moment when your mum, dad or someone near to you says “No one can understands you like I do” and things like that. Well, let them think what they think, after all even yourself can understand you.

We do a lot of actions that we don’t really understand, do we? It can be from our body reaction or a moment of anger, sadness or happiness. It happens with me a lot times myself. my point here is that you really don’t know the real you. Only the lucky ones of us who understand themselves by 90% for example, not to mention other people. Understanding somebody is really complicated, well unless you are a mind reader. Even then you might understand how their mind works but what about their heart.

In my point of view, emotions are something that no one can ever feel or understand about the other. Like if your best friend is really sad about something, you will know they are upset or sad but how much blue they are. That’s really impossible. You can’t get into somebody’s heart or soul and read it like a book. We all diverse in our minds, hearts and souls. Therefore, even if two really close people are happy about something or sad about it, they might both be experiencing the same emotion but not the same feeling.

However, understanding each other as much as it might be tricky, it can help sometimes. As an example, when people know each other’s music tastes, personalities, favorite colors or even horoscopes. Well those are tools that can get you a little bit about other people but they are not telling you what’s on his mind or heart. So, don’t judge so soon or even never judge at all. We are humans and we are ,in my opinion, a huge world of complication. Simplicity for us is in peace and love most of time, but can you tell when was the last time you felt that? Well, even if you did, I won’t actually really feel it. But that doesn’t mean I won’t acknowledge it 😉 😀

The idea here is that you can’t know what’s inside the box without actually opening it and you can’t open someone’s heart, soul or mind. However, you can shake the box and guess what’s in it 🙂

Have you ever guessed what’s  inside the box correct 😉 :D?

You are a different type of roses

How many of us have been working to satisfy their parents or to become someone who people would like or appreciate? Unfortunately, it doesn’t matter how much you try, you are different.

There are different generations and minds. like you are not like your parents and your children aren’t going to be like you. If you want to enjoy your life and be the better version of you, You don’t need to copy your ancestors. Taking their advise, though, is important. After all they lived a part of the history that you didn’t live. It doesn’t matter how hard you try to make people like you, the expectations will always be high and by the time it might destroy you than build you.

For long time , myself, my father has always had high expectations of me, same is my mum. I’ve always followed their way of living and by the time as I grew up and started realizing who I want to actually be. It was the time when I found that if I followed my dad, my mother won’t like it and vice versa. Therefore, their expectations turned from being my goals to a cause of stress. Therefore, I started my own expectations. My goals that are for me stress-worthy. Because I will never be as great as my parents became. Why? Because the circumstances are different. the thought is different. The people are different.

In the past, people were simple in everything; their thoughts, life styles. Everything. Now simplicity is just a mirage. Life now is more complicated. So you can’t compare my life with theirs. I might not seems as great as they think of seeing me, but if they saw the hard rocks and things that I passed to reach who I am now, maybe that would be something to appreciate and might even by time these rocks might be harder by time. Harder than theirs at the time.

This blog is for parents and children. I am sure you want your son or daughter to be the best thing in the world. However, does it matter if your son or daughter want to be something else than how wonderful you picture them? Maybe how amazing you want them to be would be great but will it make them happy? Just stay behind them, support them and advise them when needed. Keep the lectures away please and start the action. Start showing them how you love them instead of saying it after every fight over some different opinions. Actually, why fighting? What about sitting down and talking like adults? I know I know, it might be hard for some and it can go out of control, but believe me after fighting or scolding the results would be 100x worse than discussing. I am telling that as a teenager. Still remember that everyone is different 🙂

The most important thing is to find your aim fast enough and stay behind it and don’t give up easily. Be yourself! It doesn’t matter if you want to be a professor, an artist or even a president :D. You can be whoever you want to be and will still be great! Greatest of the greatest, in your own special way 😉

At the end of the day, I wish everyone luck and a new, joyful academic year 😀

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?

Are you a miracle?

People say that miracles ages are gone. Believe it or not, there are still a lot of miracles around us. We just don’t them.

You are a miracle yourself. Think of how many hard or unbelievable situations you have been into and survived them. Think of who you are. Your presence itself is a miracle, isn’t it? It doesn’t matter how you think of yourself as a simple human being, there is something unique in you that no one has. Think of yourself as if you are a stranger. As if you are your enemy and lover. Your enemy sees you strong, unbreakable and that’s why you have an enemy. Your lover think that you are one time thing that hardly exits. As you are his/her one unique expensive one, maybe even more expensive and worthy than a diamond.

Think of what you’ve done to people up till now. Like whatever your job is, it off course might have changed at least a small part of someone’s life. We are like gears in a clock. We move together to keep each other moving in the right movement. We are all connected to each other in a way that only the nature can connect us by. Imagine your life in as many scenarios as you can. You will find that in each scenario or story or a choice you might have made different would have made a different result. Isn’t this a miracle itself? Therefore, although we might have different opinions about this but I believe that nothing is a coincidence. Even if it’s not a result of our choices, it’s our fates.

Miracles are everywhere, in you or around you. It only needs to believe in them or at least search them to see them. They are not rare as people see them, they are every where that because of it being naturally around us, people forgot about them. They no longer see them, but once they are no longer there people will see them. That’s why only see the big miracles like miracles, while the truth is that these are not only miracles. They are extra ordinaries that might even be above miracles. Because in my point of view, miracles are so ordinary but because they’ve always been there as I said, we just can no longer notice them.

I have been thinking about that for a moment now until I decided to write about. Just believe that if you believe in yourself, believe in miracles. Believe that you are unique. Just appreciate your uniqueness. 🙂

What is the best miracle around you? 😀
