The Habit of Happiness

Posted on 1 min read 4 views

Allow yourself to feel happy every day! Either when you wake up, or when you take the first sip of coffee in the morning, or at lunch, or during a work project you enjoy, or after leaving work, on your way home or meeting friends… Read another book, wear the good clothes, try a new workout, plan another trip. Choose any of this examples as your moment of happiness. Or invent others, I don’t know your lifestyle, it could be anything as simple as cooking a new recipe, walking your dog on a different route or dancing in your pj’s. Anything goes, any ordinary activity sprinkled with a new flavour. Make it up to you, make it available to you. Happiness should be a daily habit, not a once in a while reward.

Just Keep Going

Posted on 1 min read 4 views

In our fantasy life, we are all exceptional beings: highly skilled, talented, unfearful, magnets for success, unbeatable warriors with supernatural powers and the perfect comeback lines. And by perfect, I mean right on time, not five minutes after the moment comeback line, when everyone has already moved on with their lives. If you happen to be these things in real life, go do something perfect, you arrogant… Galactic Emperor, this post is not for you. It’s for the rest of us, magnificent little ants, trying so hard to carry burdens ten times heavier than our weight on our shoulders. Us, who try everything time and time again until we get it right, us who have to accept mistake as the painful part of getting to a better place. I am merely one of you, I can’t leave myself alone not even for a day. I don’t know who, in what Universe, established that I have to always try to be more than I am, but believe me, I have mixed feelings towards this person. Because the road is both wonderful and terrible and it’s the only thing that got me where I am. So I keep going and at times it’s jolly and at times it’s bumpy and the one thing I cling on to when it gets really hard is the modest, ever so simple idea: “Just don’t stop!”

The Feminine Touch

Posted on 1 min read 2 views

I have a soft spot for big earrings and chiffon blouses. Modern life expects me to be up and ready from 6 am ’till… night time, so I don’t put on dresses as often as I’d like to, but every once and again, I feel the need to add a feminine touch to my outfits. Accessories and a soft fabric will do the trick, sometimes it’s a long, colorful scarf, sometimes it’s a silky blouse. The image is completed with a pair of statement earrings to suggest the comfort of an innocent royal arrogance and a bag I can count on throughout the day. All done, ready to explore the city streets! And tomorrow I will definitely put on a dress

Which side do you hope it would end its flight?

My face in the shadow, my face in the light.

The lightness is foggy, the darkness is clear

So no one could really decode why I’m here.

I’m here to enchant you? I’m here to reveal

Some poor human secrets you try to conceal?

Or am I just playing an old trick of mine

And dare you to step all over the line?

The trouble is, darling, you can’t tell for sure

Of what am I made of, you won’t know before.

Now that’s quite a challenge for the braver kind

So would you come closer and make up your mind?
