This is how happiness looks like to me.

6 Jan

I decided to use one of the daily prompts to complete task of the Day4 and show you my happiness:

Happiness to me is being able to come back to your home,
MISSOURI 109
watch the sunset on the same beach every evening together with your family
MISSOURI 095
and hold hands with your loved one…

Using the opportunity provided by today’s task, I want to thank the followers that have joined recently and everyone who read, and “liked” my posts.  I appreciate that.

Feel free to share with me what does happiness look like to you.

Adjuration to myself for myself

14 Aug

It is pretty difficult to live in harmony with yourself and others, and at the same time to try not to live by other people expectations. Lately, I have to deal with a lot of self-analysis. I will not lie to you – to me, this process is quite distressing. This led me to the idea to write a list of promises to myself, which I very much want to commit. And I hope that I can make it to happen, because I believe that it will make living so much easier. I assume that these 10 pledges, or “commandments” will not be the last ones. There are so many things I want to learn to change my thinking and encourage my progress. Although these 10 pledges are nothing new, but as we know, not so easy to execute. I think it must have come across many of us.
So, here they are:
1. Do not judge!
2. Do not ever think that you are a burden to someone or anyone!
3. Do not think of what other’s might think of your actions or decisions!
4. Do not imagine things that other’s might think of you and do not automatically take it as a truth! Because it could be completely different.
5. Criticize yourself, but never ever punish or belittle yourself!
6. “Pet on your shoulder” every so often!
7. Do not justify yourself!
8. Do not explain yourself, or your actions to people who don’t know you or don’t care about you!
9. Do not feel sorry for not pleasing someone or saying “No”!
10.Do something new every day, even those are small things!

Good luck! 🙂

Delight. What is that?

13 Feb

A thought that I had lost my ability to get excited about things harassed me for some time, and no matter whether those are small or big things, items, events or new experience. It made me really upset.
Recently I came across this quote: “Enthusiasm is everything! Give to people all of earthly goods, but take away their ability to feel the excitement, and you curse them to eternal death”. Sounds scary, but I completely agree. Only one can be truly happy and feel the joy that retains the ability to get excited of the things that everyday life provides us with. I have always been kind of envious of the people, who are enthusiastic and able to admire. I want to get back my ability to admire!
Last week I was on a small two-day trip to Rome to meet my fiancé. I have always enjoyed visiting new places. I could wander through the streets of Rome for hours and for days. Every time, when I saw a new building, that appeared around the corner and it’s pillars were glowing in the sun light, it took my breath away. Isn’t that great? And, hey!? I was excited and delight 🙂 That was a great feeling. All the even more incredible made the fact, that I had a person next to me with whom to share this excitement. However, you must be able to admire things being alone and at the same time not feeling lonely, because those are the moments that promote creativity in us.
I am convinced that the excitement causes physical changes in the human’s mind and body, making healthier and providing with energy. And I believe, that the ability to transfer excitement to others and thus gives them the enthusiasm to move forward and become more active, is a real god’s gift. Would not it be wonderful with his enthusiasm and energy captivate the others and create a delight addiction…
