People are amazing.

people-are-awesome

I have so much respect for people that do amazing things, people that go out of their comfort zone, people that risk their life to entertain you for a minute.  People who take pleasure in making you feel amazing. As I said in one of my older posts: There are people who drawn from a glass of water and people that can swim from England to France.

People that dedicate their life to a certain passion. People who give away family to pursue what they love. It fascinates me that some people turn out to be such amazing husband/wife material and some people turn out to be a lone wolfs. People that wonder the world seeing things most of us will never get to. Why? Because people have choices. You make your own life, not one is going to make it the way you want. There’s so many places to go, so many things to see, so many situations I crave to be in, so many experiences I want to go through, so many people I want to meet, so many things I want to learn, the hard way.

It’s mind-blowing how some people have certain principles. Although I hate biology and chemistry, I love what the human mind can do. The places it can take you, surrounded by the 4 walls of your room. Just close your eyes and dream. People that have that ability, I envy you, so much.

I was in college the other day and I had this conversation with this guy, I asked him if he drinks alcohol. He calmly said: “I don’t drink”. I looked at him bewildered, my ignorance not realising the diversity in people. I aggressively asked him if he had ever tried it…….He looked in my eyes and smiled, saying: “I don’t drink”.  He had that look on his face, like he didn’t understand my stupefaction. That’s human nature….

Sure, you have people that stab you in the back for a greater salary, and you have people that think they stole your girlfriend. Of course he doesn’t realise that if you allowed him to steal her, she stopped being yours before he even got there or should I say in there. 🙂

You also have people that annoy me until my blood starts to boil. They’re still people, they’re still fascinating, just not to me. People that have a hard time comprehending logical reasoning. Because everything in this world happens at the wish of a supernatural god that punishes you when you sin. SUCH LAUGH.

I find astonishing this rule people created. I was on my way to college the other day, I took my packet of cigarettes out, realising I had like 18 left I fainted a smile. 20 seconds later, someone walks up to me and asks me:”Do you have a spare cigarette?”. Mind-blowing. Not “I’ve seen you take your cigarettes out, can I please have one?”. No, of course not. You can’t put someone you don’t know in an awkward situation. You have to ask if they have a spare one, although you’ve seen their packet. There are certain rules that we follow, without even realising it.

It mesmerises me to learn about people, to see what makes them tick, what makes them do things, what makes them blindly follow religion, what makes them be so passionate about science, what makes people make the choices they make. I want to know their stories. I want to……KNOW.

Choose to be happy, it’s good for your health…

Posted on Updated on

If you walked up to me and asked me what I wanted from life I would have given you a totally different answer 3-4 years ago than I’d give now.  I’d have said financial stability, you know, not astronomical sums, but enough not to worry what to eat or how to pay the rent/mortgage.

I’d give a different answer now. I’d say I’d choose health. If you’re healthy, you have the ultimate freedom. You can do all the things you wish to do, even the ones you wish not to. Vices are for people who can afford them. 🙂

What really annoys me is that people have choices. And most of the times they make the wrong ones. DON’T LET THEM TAKE WHAT’S BEST IN LIFE. Never stop, you can achieve what you want. This book that I’m reading at the moment called “The Power” by Rhonda Byrne kind of emphasises on your thought process. She elaborates on how your thoughts and actions attract positive or negative things to you. As a example if you’re irritated you’ll attract back to you all people, circumstances , and events that will make your day stressful. Think of negative things and nature will give you to you in floods.

Most people don’t realise how much freedom they have. From doing WHATEVER you want to doing it with WHOEVER you want. Remember, if you don’t ask they answer will always be no. I value freedom greatly. The fact that I can go anywhere at any time, I think that’s the richest thing in my life, wouldn’t trade it for anything.

The way I see it, there are people that spend their life dying and there are people who LIVE life. I want more people to “feel”…..You have the sense of sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch so that you can feel everything in life. Why is it that so many of us choose to focus on the things we don’t have as opposed to focusing on the things we do have. People need to realise that the glass it’s always full, it’s a matter of perception.

It’s cold outside at the moment. Britain in January…… Now I could say the weather here sucks or I could go outside and feel.

Live a little. Laugh a lot

I’m going to start with a couple of quotes from “Hitch”, a movie I recommend.

“There is more to life than to watch other people live it.”

Live a little. Next time that secretary  walks by and her sweet perfume makes you nostalgic, GO TELL HER.

“Basic principles: no woman wakes up saying, “God, I hope I don’t get swept off my feet today!” Now, she might say, “This is a really bad time for me,” or something like, “I just need some space,” or my personal favorite, “I’m really into my career right now.” You believe that? Neither does she. You know why? Because she’s lying to you, that’s why. You understand me? Lying! It’s not a bad time for her. She doesn’t need any space. And she may be into her career, but what she’s really saying is, “Uh, get away from me now,” or possibly, “Try harder, stupid.” But which one is it? Sixty percent of all human communication is nonverbal, body language; thirty percent is your tone. So that means that ninety percent of what you’re saying ain’t coming out of your mouth. Of course she’s going to lie to you! She’s a nice person. She doesn’t want to hurt your feelings. What else she going to say? She doesn’t even know you… yet. Luckily, the fact is that just like the rest of us, even a beautiful woman doesn’t know what she wants until she sees it.”

Live a little. The only people without vices are the ones that can’t afford them. So as my lovely friend was preaching the other day, find something that you love and let it kill you. Adrenaline junkie? Good, skydive, base jump, learn to fly a wingsuit. I sure as hell will do it. Family is what floats your boat? Then go out there and find yourself one, the right one. If the woman you wake up next to is not the one you dreamed about then you woke up in the wrong bed. You want a successful career? You better start building towards that because every decision you make can either help you build tomorrow or ruin it.

Live a little more. Go outside your comfort zone, you see that guy drinking his coffee alone and you check him out and you kind of like what you see ? So then you tell yourself, if he was worth it, he wouldn’t be drinking coffee alone. Isn’t that simple? I don’t know what it is or why you find guys that are taken more attractive.

Go do something you never thought you could. What doesn’t kill you better get out of your way when you get up. Do something you were always scared of, do something not many people can say they’ve done.

Remember “Life is not the amount of breaths you take, it’s the moments that take your breath away.”

The best breakfast is taken in bed. In the right bed 🙂 At 20 you know what you want, at 30 you know who you want. Learn to ask a lot from life, that way you have where to start negotiating.

Is it raining? NO because my weather forecast depends on her smile. And remember, a good night is not a night you slept. 🙂

Unless we try the answer will always be NO.

Use your imagination, let it take you to worlds you didn’t know existed. Worlds you can’t comprehend, emotions you haven’t felt.

Perfect man

For those of you thinking all men are a**holes. For those of you thinking “they’re all the same”. The special lady strikes again,straight to the heart this time. This is for you, for those of you who have not experienced this.

 

 

A letter to a Ghost

 

Ghost-002

You are a man that every woman dreams to have the opportunity to share even few seconds with… even if it were once in a life time.

 

 

Your giving nature turns you into an irresistible lover, whom one can not forget or compare to any one else.

 

I was lucky to share unique moments of joy and completeness with you, as well as take advantage of your friendship, which I did not deserved under those circumstances. I wish to thank you for being there for me, as without you my path would have been broken and life a mere routine, without hope and expectation for a new start.

 

You are an amazing man, with so much character and strength. The effect you have on people is perhaps even bigger, than you think. It is people like you, which can make this world a better place, just by being the way you are, and bring sun, light and smiles to those lucky enough to be a part of your life. You simply bring out the best in people…

 

You see you are not only strong, intelligent, the best listener I have ever met in my life and the lover for me, but also a person with integrity and a noble cause. I do not only want you, but I also admire you. I admit I need to live my extremes but also my moments of weakness. You are one of them…maybe the most important of them!

 

One way or another you are the trip you are the destination, the hope and the expectation. That is what you are…

The battle of the seasons.

autumn scene

I found myself mesmerised by the autumn “scent” today. You know, like that evocative smell after it rains.  All I wanted to do was just walk, enjoy nature.

I realised summer is over. The breeze from the North sea is getting stronger day by day, The air I breath is colder. I remember when Spring started in March, I used to tell myself: “Hey, the air I breath is warmer, not that much wind anymore”. Yin and Yang eh?

When summer starts and women start wearing skirts and make the world so colourful, so pleasant like blossomed flowers. You feel so alive, along with the nature.

Everything is green, the symbol of life. But now nature follows it’s cycle. The trees start to lose their leaves. Metaphorically, they look so sad. And they get sadder day by day, until nature strips them “naked”.

Birds start to flee to warmer places, can you blame them? Who wouldn’t? Ignoring that the only reason We have season is because Earth is tilted I’m going to say that this is nature’s way of making us change something in our life. The worst thing is routine, right? Or so I hear.

We all change our clothes for Autumn, evidently, it’s colder. Trees change their clothes, or should I say, lose them. Birds flee, insects try to gather as much food as possible for the oncoming winter.

AH, WINTER. Sight of animal life nearly non-existent, most animals hibernate. Trees are covered in snow, that of course if You DON’T live in England. :). I’m not a big fan of winter, it’s so quiet, so empty, it lacks….well…LIFE. So, since our survival instinct makes us adapt to all  these changes in our lives what are We doing this Winter? I don’t know about you but I’m waiting for spring. That’s when nature resumes it’s cycle, IT revives. Then I’m looking forward to summer when these mystical yet complicated creatures called women can use the streets as cat-walks to stupefy us with magnetizing beauty.
