Rain, sun, repeat.

In my country, spring is like life. You can’t know when is it going to rain or the sun is going to shine.

Just like life. You get dressed, put a smile on your face and step out of your house wishing for a good day ahead of you. But then you come back home with the smile faded and just wish that you would let go of all what happened that day. Other days, you wake up cursing that day, that time, and you get dressed and go yurt because you have to. Then the day surprises you! And you return back home wishing to never let go of that day’s memories and sleep with the biggest smile on your face. Just like the weather here. Some days are rainy and blue but other are sunny and warm.

We can’t have sunny days all the time. I know you wish we did, but imagine with me. We are happy everyday, a day will come that we badly wanna cry, scream, get angry. At least now if your life is not going that sunshiny, you can always wish for those day. Instead of having a sunshiny life and wishing for rainy days.

My point is that bad and good days are what make our life has a meaning, what makes our life not boring or meaningless in fact. Like if you kept watching happy movies all the time or sad ones. Eventually, one day you will be done with it. Therefore, just praise the days we live and always keep hoping for sunshiny days. πŸ˜‰

Standards are made not met

Lately, I’ve been thinking if standards that are just there how are they just there? I mean someone must have made them and as they are made then we can made ours too, right?

Success & Failure

For instance, the success or failure, are two standards that are measured in many ways; like grades for example. It’s true that having a high grade can show how good you are collecting information, but it has absolutely nothing to do with your success, or creativity. I mean having high grades can show that you are good in understanding your lessons and studying but it’s not necessary an indication of a success in practical life and I think that’s a common knowledge that most of us are told or know by first hand experience. So, the concept of success and failure comes in many other ways like your personal life too. I mean not because you were never in a relationship before, then you can’t be in one. Maybe you are one who appreciate it so much and really committed that you are just waiting for the right person. Same for your practical life. Not because you are just photocopying papers in an office then you can’t do the higher jobs. Who knows? Maybe your boss doesn’t know how to use the photocopier. πŸ˜€

My point is…

We are different, we are really good in different standards that not all will understand, just like many standards in our society that never make sense to us, but a big deal for others. Therefore, somehow we made our own standards as we move on in this life. As long as we meet them, then we are fortunate! We are the ones who would show people how important are our standards. Maybe they will never understand but they might appreciate it. As we do appreciate theirs.

One day,

Life might be easier. More thoughtful and hopeful, with less high standards that can be so high and crushing for some people. Praise the real you in you, then maybe you can find the peace, success and happiness you were searching for.

 

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 πŸ˜€ )

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.

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?! πŸ˜€ The answer is that pain can sometimes remind us that we passed harder times before and we can pass those ones too! πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ˜‰

Cherophobia – My own fear of happiness

I actually searched the term. Have you ever laughed so much and prayed in your heart that you don’t cry as much as you laughed later?

That’s me, every single time I laugh, I smile or just be happy. I don’t know if it’s my luck or my destiny but it doesn’t matter with how much I get happy I find the same amount of sadness or anger later. like for example last week I was going to my exam and I was so happy for some reason, not for the exam for sure, I put on my music and rolled down the car windows enjoying my music and I just smiled. To figure out that I forgot my bag and I had to go all the way back home to get my bag. I know that it’s stupidity of me but accidents happens right?

The idea is that I am tired of being the game of luck or destiny. I am a happy person by nature. I don’t get upset over things easily, and always when I have a problem I don’t cry over it, I think of a solution so that problem is over as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, people around me and my world isn’t as comfortable or happy as I am, that every time I smile I know that I will pay for that tiny movement of my mouth.

It’s hard to be piece that doesn’t belong to the puzzle. It’s hard to always suffer for a moment of rest. But after all I will still smile πŸ˜‰

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! πŸ˜€

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! πŸ˜€ 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 πŸ˜€

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 πŸ™‚

Have you ever regretted giving up? How?

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 πŸ˜‰

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” πŸ™‚

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. πŸ˜‰

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

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

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 myselfΒ wait a minute.. If people can’t help (most of the time), then what about things? Β What about my cheer up playlist? Happy Movie list? πŸ˜€

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 πŸ˜‰

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

Holiyay!

As Christmas is around the corner and a new year is about to start. There is somethingΒ  I have to tell you. ” Enjoy the last bit and celebrate all the achievements”

As a new year is about to start we start planning for the next year what should be done and what should not do. Every year and not every year but every time I start a new thing i plan for it and never happens. Therefore, I am not going to plan for this year. I am not going to set myself a To-Do list or any of these. I am leaving my destiny to decide my upcoming life, leaving the wind to land me wherever it wants as long as I am going in the right direction towards my big aim of life “success”. Life can’t always be what we want because it will never be white all the time there will be always black times we don’t plan for or expect. This time I am expecting those times, I am expecting the storms and the blessings of the rain and sunshine as well.

More importantly, don’t regret your decisions or whatever you did last year. Anything you did last year even if it’s stupid, a loss or such an impressive achievements, be proud of them all. They are lessons and experiences that I am sure they taught you a really great lessons for your upcoming life. Don’t also regret losing people if it was with your own choice or not, that’s life cycle anyway that we all should accept. Celebrate it actually, celebrate letting people from your life maybe they are gone for the good of both of you. Celebrate the next year with the people who are still there for you and enjoy the moments with them because no one knows what the future brings for us.

At the end of the day i wish you all such a very happy and an astonishing year filled with love, hope and blessings. I know that I said not to plan for the upcoming year to avoid disappointments but i didn’t say the Christmas of new year’s eve πŸ˜€

So! What are your plans? If you are wondering about my mine, i don’t think i am going out of my country’s boarders but maybe my house boarders with my family:P πŸ˜€

Be easy and enjoy the moment (Tips & Hacks)

Hey everyone! Sorry for not posting lately but it has been so hard to find time for myself actually.

Most of us care so much about their image and how do they look more than how do they feel. For example, I know people who can actually carry a full bag of clothes, make up or whatever to get ready for a hang out after school or work. Well, I find that cool actually but it takes time so if you have an hour to enjoy after this all you have like 30 minutes. Not to mention, the rush and stress which makes the joy fades. So! I tried to be naturally on the fleek for the last couple days. Here is what I did:

1. Make sure my hair is as nice as it can be either by a sleeping routine hairstyle or using heating hairstyles that lasts for sometime.

2. Have masks or a programe of skin care which keeps the skin most of the time if not always glowing and fresh with the use of a good soap in the morning that matchs your skin type

3. For me I never cared for the clothes part actually because I always tried my best to have the best style I can by noticing other people fashion and making it as simple and it can for me. But a piece of advise, if what you wear is comfortable and chick in your eyes with some confident, you will be a runway model. So always make sure that even in uniforms you look the best you can.

4. Enjoy it! You saw yourself in the mirror this morning. Liked yourself till admiration, don’t bother again unless there is something really wrong that you need to check it. 

Don’t let anything stop you ! You have a unique magic that god gave you that gave to no one. We are different in different ways. Show your magic! 

So! What do you think about the tips ? Are you going to follow any πŸ˜€ ? Do you have any of yours ? Comment below maybe it can help me as well πŸ˜€
