Catch of the month | April

This is definitely a catch, because I wanted something exactly like this (I even had found the DIY instructions that I will share) and then got them as a present!

Amazing. 🙂

I can change the fabric… I love them.

Free your mind and the rest will follow!

I have this song stuck in my head for a few days now…

Daily Prompt asks me: What is your most prized possession?

I get attached to a lot of small stuff and have a shell of memories which don’t mean anything to anyone but me… But this topic reminded me on something else.

I say, freedom! Not just physical freedom, more of that, mental freedom. Freedom to do how I feel, something I am just discovering after years and years in mental prison.

Say something…

I am singing this song in my head – pretty good if I can add, and I want to share it for a while know here.

It seems that everything finds its place and time in this blogo-journey of mine.

“Say something, I’m giving up on you
I’m sorry that I couldn’t get to you
Anywhere I would’ve followed you
Say something, I’m giving up on you

And I will swallow my pride
You’re the one that I love
And I’m saying goodbye…”

I love the song, the lyrics and the amaaaazing performance of Alex and Sierra, but for the world of me, I don’t get the last bit.

He/She is swallowing his/hers pride and saying goodbye? Shouldn’t saying goodbye stand for making a decision instead of bowing down?

I believe in forgive but I don’t believe in forget. I can never forget some things that happened to me, people can’t forget – and it would be wrong! Those are the things that defined them. Bad things, like good, define us. Our attitude. What would happen if I woke up tomorrow not remembering what made me to think like I think, to do stuff I do? It would be a trauma, an amnesia.

I believe in forgive because no one feels your hate and grudge but you, and that feeling is poison inside. So, yes, forgive because of yourself. Forget if you can.

In which of my ears does it ring?

Do you have a saying like this one? We do.

And it is a common courtesy to answer, whether this question came from a family member or your boss. It is something very natural to do, and everyone gets involved. Whew… I wish everyone would get involved with some other things like on this one.

I have in store something beautiful! Wonderful! Amazing! 🙂 Hint… It is a promise and I have to do it because it starts to haunt me and you will have something to look at. There. 😛

So, in which of my ears does it ring? (It really does)

 

Plus, vote for the turtle. YES, we are still doing that 😀

Waking Up Is Hard To Do …

I do not know what to put focus on, because the entire post is so beautifully written and close to me… The hardest thing about this reblog was choosing the quote.

“All the romance aside, waking up is hard to do. Life can be so overwhelming for many of us that we learn to numb ourselves to the day-to-day adopting, however unwittingly, a disassociated state just to get by. As a result we don’t feel present in our experiences and our lives, and when we look back all we see is a blur. I know this to be true, for it is my experience.

To be awakened, no matter how gently, has the potential to wreak inner havoc. However, if are to be free of the over-shadowed life we must wake up and step into the light, even though it’s bound to be a bit disorienting for a while.”

“Waking up, and expanding our comfort zone, is hard to do. Still, when we land in an environment that promotes growth and surround ourselves with people who care a whole new world can open up for us. “

Just over three months ago Bear and I made a major change in our lives by moving to another barn.

The shift in awareness for us both has been dramatic. It’s almost as if we are awakening, finally getting to see our truth in the light of day. In fact, I even joked the other day that Bear is coming out of hibernation!

And I feel like Sleeping Beauty kissed awake into a new realm of magical possibility.

All the romance aside, waking up is hard to do. Life can be so overwhelming for many of us that we learn to numb ourselves to the day-to-day adopting, however unwittingly, a disassociated state just to get by. As a result we don’t feel present in our experiences and our lives,  and when we look back all we see is a blur…

I’m on a pursuit of happiness…

I'm on a pursuit of happiness...

I bookmarked this photo a while ago for a good reason.

This is a part of Strangers Project photo, so if you still don’t know about them – quickly – to my post! ➡ THE STRANGERS PROJECT

I saved it because it says:

The 20s are so weird. I feel unsettled and unsatisfied and inspired and scared and brave and incompetent and underutilized and bored and overwhelmed all the time. I guess everyone feels this way, but it’s still very isolating. If you’re reading this and you feel this way, I hope you know you’re not alone.

That is so relatable to me… And I think to many 20 somethings. 🙂

We all in the end strive to find happiness and be happy. I have found this link about 21 Habits Of Happy People. Honestly, I read only the numbers, not the description, but the article is very much on point. I loved the last sentence the most:

BE TRUE TO YOURSELF.

And in that, I want to share my opinion. It seems to me that we are preoccupied with “the search of happiness” and feeling happy in general, and the state of “being happy” is idealised. Everywhere I hear stuff like, be happy, 10 things to make you happy, even in the music industry is a movement of “Happy” by Pharell. I love that, I’m all about positivity.

I know you’re sensing a “but”. 🙂

But! What about being sad? Angry? Nervous? Relieved? Are those feelings less important? Are they less valuable, do they make us less “happy”? I said already in one of my post, how would you know you are happy if you have never been sad?

All emotions are HUMAN. Striving to happiness is beautiful. But life isn’t all white. It’s yin and yang. And do not let your down’s bring the shadow on your up’s, because the balance is what it is really all about.

Love, dream, hope… And don’t forget to look around you in this very moment. You know what often brings happiness? Gratitude. Being present.

At least to me… ❤
