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 πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€

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 πŸ™‚

Have you ever guessed what’s Β inside the box correct πŸ˜‰ :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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ˜‰

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

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. πŸ™‚

What’s your ideas of the book ending πŸ˜‰ :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. πŸ™‚

What is the best miracle around you? πŸ˜€

Will it change by the dawn?

Have you ever kept thinking about something your whole life until suddenly you feel everything no longer make sense as it used to be? Then start asking yourself, when did everything reach that point?

I ask myself that question a lot these days. I am a senior year student this year. Normally that’s the time where you start about who you want to be, what you want. All my life I’ve had that one specific plan or idea of how my life is going to turn out to be. I was so lucky to find out what I want to be since so long, unlike some of my friends. I knew what I want to do at college and university from day on. I knew what type of a woman I wanted to be. I was so blessed with this. I knew how my life would turn out to be. I was that lucky until things around me started to make no more sense as they used to be. Until I found out that the type of woman I want to be is no longer that type who sits around thinking of white dressed or how the wedding would be, unlike most girls.

I found out that i want to be that kind of woman whose name is a trademark, Whose name itself makes from her a warrior. Even then, I knew that I want to be a business woman, which was great! Like I knew that I would be studying business studies and economics and so on. I was lucky that since I made the decision I haven’t changed my mind a bit, until the world actually started to change. Β Now I am thinking of surviving before making my dreams come true. People around me say that I can’t do what I am thinking of and that I am crazy. Even the idea of me learning new skills or languages, my family sees them as a waste of time because at the end of the day whatever i am dreaming of happening will never happen.

Moreover, i am still looked at as a woman. A female who is at the end of the day is going to get married and stay home. The idea that one day I might find my other half is there but after my dreams come true or at least when I find that right other half, not just because the society or my family needs to see me married or a mother. If you are reading this I would love to ask one thing from you. Whoever you are, a father, a mother, a friend or a teacher. Please, never let whoever have a dream to let it go. Because one day, if you let everyone let go of their dreams or the passion of becoming something. the day no one have dreams, is the day when the world is literally over. The day when everything goes and ends. Never force anyone to be what they don’t want to be, please support them and off course give them your advice. Make them happy and strong. Happiness and strength are the keys to the success and better world. And you too when you go after your dream don’t give up easily and take responsibility of your actions, remember it was your choice in the first place. The truth is that we, human beings, don’t learn our lesson until we actually fall and get up again.

Don’t worry if things changed by the dawn or if things no longer make sense. You are still there and as things weren’t making sense in the past, they will again πŸ™‚

Sorry if that was a long one πŸ˜€ I just hope that I proved my point πŸ™‚

Are you still waiting for a reply?

With the technology developing and one of the main ways of communication are chatting apps. I’ve been reading a lot of memes and posts about messaging. Like how annoying is it when you message someone and checking your phone every second for a reply, but hopelessly, nothing. Sometimes they might have actually read it, but still the last message on the screen is yours.

Normally, I always expect the good will, like they might not have been able to reply yet or something bad might have happened and I actually start to worry. That’s how you can keep your mind away from all the negative ideas that revolves in your mind. After all, if you were in that person’s shoes you might be thinking the same. Away from the idea of good will and so on also the idea of keeping the good relations with people. Always think of how your friendship or relationship with that person might end up if you accused him or her of some bad will and you actually turned up to be wrong. Always think of the consequences. So don;t worry, it’s not always your boyfriend or girlfriend is cheating on you or that your best friend is ignoring you. Relax and think it well and carefully through. Because it doesn’t matter how many times you might explain yourself later. Whatever it’s said is out there. You can’t take it back.

On the other hand, don’t always expect that people are all angels. We are all 2-halves. Yin and Yang. Black and white. We all have an angel and a devil sides inside us. Therefore, the idea of how far are you going with the good will thing depends on the person. Like not because he told you that he or she loves you deeply then off course they are not cheating on you. Remember his or her history. Didn’t they cheat on their ex ,for example, with you? Sorry for the example by the way, just the nearest that came to my mind. My point here is that bring blindly trusting is a relaxing thing that you won’t have to imagine dozens of scenarios, but also keep an eye.

One more advice that I really, really would love you taking it in consideration. Don’t make any of it a big deal. Even if you see yourself true 100%. No one is 100% true, we obviously see ourselves that because if we don’t trust ourselves who we will. It’s human nature. Don’t go on fire and burn everything down in a moment of anger, because one day you will look back at the ashes and regret it so much. Whenever things gets south, always try to end the conversation before it becomes that type of conversation Β that you would curse yourself for ever allowing it and losing the people you love or destroying your beautiful dream with your bare hands. Stop it and leave the place immediately. Think of it wisely, and only include the judgments of the people you know who care about you and can by any chance trust their judgment. Never ever get in the way people who might benefit of that misunderstanding or might lead you to a misery. Also remember that forgiveness can happen, especially if it means not losing someone you love, care about or trust. They so rare to find, so keep them in your life as long as you can.

Don’t lose them over a text πŸ˜‰

It’s nothing like what you think

We human beings have that habit of thinking that we are the only right ones. Just to get this straight, no one is 100% true. That’s perfection and perfection with all the theories and perspectives can’t exist.

It’s like if someone says that they know you so well and judge even before making sure of their ideas. We are not all what we seem or look like. We all lead different lives and have different personalities. Like not because that person is stupid then he or she can’t do anything in there lives. They can even be more successful than a smart one who thinks that no one deserves his or her smartness. Somehow there is that theory that if a person is wearing expensive clothes or brands then they might get people to trust him. I don’t know why but I think that I have read this somewhere before. Anyway, my idea is that not because of how people look or talk then it shows the really them.

You know! Sometimes when I think or get asked of what supernatural power I would wish to have, I would be thinking of the power of reading people’s brain. Understanding people is hard and if you ever underestimated someone it can cause embarrassment or even danger. Therefore, it doesn’t matter how a person look, talk or show how loyal and trust worthy he or she is. It’s not always as it seems. It’s also annoying sometimes when that happens to you. Like if someone thought of you as a stupid or thought of you as something you would actually hate to even think of it. Other times it can be useful actually.

The human being thoughts can be so different and variant. However, there are some thoughts that we all mostly agree to like fear of death or searching for a person to love or trust. We might not show this or agree to it, but we all have those thoughts anyway. So if someone told you that they don’t care if they died, well they do. It’s something in us nit by our hands. Like if you got that person into the water and they can’t swim they will try their best to survive.Even if it’s not his own who tries to survive, it’s his body.

We all have something to hide, weakness point or some beautiful emotion that we hide so no one can get access to you or break you through it. It’s a fact, the question is why? Why can’t people stop thinking on how to protect and trust? I know the answer as you do but I still can’t keep the thought away. The thought that whatever is around us is not what it’s actually is. It’s a mask that hides a lot behind it. Just because lies and looks can work better than truth.

Somehow that blog might not make sense but at the moment my mind is like a messy room with a lot of thoughts about that topic and as always I don’t think i am the only one πŸ™‚ πŸ˜€

What are your thoughts??

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 πŸ˜€ 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 πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€

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 πŸ˜€

(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 πŸ™‚)

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 πŸ˜‰ :D.

Those are my main 3 ways anyway πŸ˜€ 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 πŸ˜‰ :D.

If you also have ways comment them below for others to know πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€

Different stories

One of the things that I sometimes think of is what kind of people or stories is out there in the world. Believe me, I can stay for an hour or maybe more just going from conclusions to reasons and from one person’s story or life to another. It’s really weird but that’s how sometimes waiting for time to pass can look like πŸ˜€

Anyway, I won’t lie to you. The reason I am writing this blog is somehow might be silly :D. As this summer, especially lately, I started watching LOADS of TV shows, movie and stuff like that. You might even notice from previous blogs this summer. Look, I am not that type of person who would enjoy sitting around doing nothing and as sometimes I have no other choice other than that, being engaged in other stories doesn’t sound bad to me D. So I started to watch SO many TV shows. Well, I am not addicted yet, maybe a little obsessed with the stories I see.

I love thinking of how might a story go if a different route was taken. It might be freaky but somehow it helps me to think of the possibilities and choice I might have if I got into a similar situation or even to help me understand how might people act according to their different stories. Let me make this clearer. When I hear a story of a person or watch a TV show I learn what kind of situation he or she might be at and how they will act. That way it helps me that when for example I ask something from my colleague and they show some type of a tense reaction for no reason, then something not good must’ve happened. I start to put scenarios and I don’t push my request that I might even search for a way to help if I can. It’s weird and believe me, doing this sometimes, puts me in weird situations with people, because off course no one now do anything for free. Unfortunately, the world changed so much to let free favors take place.

Just my point is that, We all have different stories, different cast too. You might be supported by your families, friends while others don’t. Always think of the people around you as of different versions and expect anything. a year or two before I would have advised you to think of the good intentions first with everyone. well, today I won’t, Today, I would tell you watch your back. The good intentions might only exits with your family or people you think might care just not to lose them or fight over non trust and stuff like that, but always be careful. Watch. your. back!

Remember that your story is different from their’s.

What was the wierdst story you heard or saw and thought about for so long?

We are messy like a 100 pieces of puzzle

Who am I? I ask myself this question every night. Every night I find a different answer for it. Some days I am the happiest under the moon, some other times I am the bluest. Sometimes I so ambitious and hopeful about the morning and some other days Β I am so hopeless that I feel it’s the end of the world and I might never wake up tomorrow.

Everyday makes me discover new things about people, the world. We are so weird, do you know that? But astonishingly, beautifully weird and that’s what makes us unique and our world somehow the right place to live at. I learn new stuff about people’s type every second. I find out that whatever I’ve knows and learned so far is never enough. There’s a quote that say:

” Without the change in tastes, the goods would’ve been ruined”

Therefore, it’s our good luck that we are different! Although, I know what you might be thinking about now, which is that life might have been so easier if we were all have the same personalities or minds. Okay, you might be right but think of living in a world where all the people are you. It can be so easier, that’s true but not forever. Even ourselves change. Like are you the same person you were a year ago, not even 10 years? We change every day, although we stay the same person at the end. Like a good person might get worse but will always return to it’s good origin. If there’s a small amount of kindness and goodness in someone, it will always show up. Changing also have measures. Like you can change a little bit over night. A person can never naturally change from batman to the joker over night :D. My point is that a person can’t be so bad over night. They might be angrier than usual so they would make an unacceptable thing but at the end they are not that bad after all.

Also remember that people are different, but there that good person who might be good just like you. So never give up on finding you match of friends or your other half. Don’t also keep that thought of that what you are doing is silly or people might not like it. If you thing it’s worth it then there is someone else somewhere also thinks the same ;). As for myself, I think of that every time i send a message or do something or even writing a blog :D. But every time I feel that thing inside me that I am happy that I am writing this so I am sure someone else might be happy to read it to :D.

After all. we are all like pieces of puzzle that always take time to be solved. Just needs time πŸ™‚ and that comes when you get to know that person better every day. Also don’t get so shocked and except anything, might happens of changes. We are all humans, and if you changed from yesterday to today then others can.

Life is full of surprises πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚

What was the hugest change that happened to you :D?
