Life Lessons Worth Reading and Implementing
I turned 26 last month so I decided to share some lessons that I learned so far. All of the points I experienced on my skin, unfortunately on a hard way! However, I am wiser now just like every one of us with each new year that approaches!
The idea of this brief article is to inspire each other, and if you think there’s a point that needs to be added; something that life has thought you — feel free to write it in the comments section below and share it with all of…
A Brief Guide to Self-Awareness
This post consists of true-life events. The main focus is on tobacco addiction and how it affects our lives as well as the lives of those that are around us.
Yesterday while I was listening to a singer called Camarón de la Isla, known as the Roma God of Flamenco, one of the best Spanish singers, I remembered my tobacco past. Sadly, I used to smoke for almost 10 years. A nasty decade that rewarded me with yellow teeth, weaker lungs, and a thinner wallet.
Flamenco, a type of music that touches the soul, spreads…
What Raving Teaches Us About Life
I haven’t heard this masterpiece for a while…
I don’t know why, but this song takes me so high, to some other dimensions especially if I play it loud.
Perhaps, the reason is that I’ve heard this song for the first time in the theater venue in Amsterdam with more than 1200 people around me.
It was one of those moments, when — you know — everyone grabs its head and looks up surrendering with everything that exists around at that moment.
Your eyes start…
Back then, we would wait that someone remembers our birthday and congratulates us. Now, we announce on social media that is our birthday so everyone can be notified and wish us all the best. How silly.⠀
You know what else is silly? Asking how old is someone. Not for the sake of the question, but for that “OLD” word.⠀
Well folks, today, I am not 26 years old. Today, I am 26 years YOUNG!⠀ …
I am not a follower of any religion, belief, or anything similar nor I want to present the concept of Taijitu as something that is 100% true.
However, I always seek the good in everything, even when it does not seem to exist. That is my life policy and that is why I decided to write about Taijitu, an ancient, simple symbol that explains bigger meaning far more than we probably realize. The fact is, there are moments when we feel so uplifted thinking we are about to fly. …
Whether it is a real journey that precedes all the preparations and packing of our suitcase/backpack or just fantasizing about traveling without the same detailed packaging - you have to admit — every trip is a form of pastime and the hedonism that absolutely every one of us aspires to.
The truth is, we travel for multiple reasons and they are quite subjective but we can all agree that every trip represents one more highlight of our year. We even do all our jobs and commitments with greater desire and ultra-productiveness when we have a vacation in mind that starts…
The story goes like this:
I was just an ordinary girl with a pocket full of dreams.
By the time I was 24, I’ve changed around thirty jobs, always unsatisfied either with salary or bosses, conditions, my surroundings. I was simply deeply unhappy with my occupations that were occupying my days and besides, leaving me tired and mad at the whole world right before my time to sleep. It was obvious, I desperately needed a change.
At first, I was just daydreaming at my work. I was still doing my job perfectly, but I wasn’t present there at all. Quite…
Well, to begin with, labeling or naming, seems to give a feeling of understanding.
However, many people wrongly interpret what they think they understand.
For example, a few months ago I ordered a pizza. Although I do not eat meat for over a year, I refuse to be called a vegetarian as I still eat sea food. Instead, I prefer to say I am a wannabe plant based person that tries to eat healthy. For this reason, I noted in my shrimp pizza order: “Please, do not put meat or eggs.”
Despite the fact I added the note, I received…
Just a girl called Valentina that hates Valentine’s Day.
My name is Valentina. I got this name from my dad and sister because they wanted someone in the family to have a special name day in addition to the birthday.
Yet, they did not put into a consideration how they would mark every man who would love me with thick pressing.
"Apart from Valentine’s Day, she is called Valentina. You must never forget that day".
However, I never loved Valentine’s Day. I was once dumped on Valentine’s Day by a guy I used to love as a little girl, and…
