Very true 🙂
I have always had a thing for animals, specially cats and dogs… When I see scared or neglected cat or dog I want to come to them, pet them, talk to them, feed them… 🙂
I wanted to be veterinarian when I was a kid… What put me off was the idea of watching sick animals all the time and not being able to save them all… I get that way, in a Superhero mode. And it is not possible. So I focus on ones I can do something about. This little scared kitty is taken in by my bf family but they can’t have her in the house because it is semi-wild. She is so scared… So we are trying to socialize her whenever I’m there. 🙂 You can see one of the attempts to make her stop being afraid of us.

Lately it’s been hard. It is difficult. It is so much negativity around. And it is hard to stay neutral. It gets to me. I got sad. I got scared. I got frustrated. I am human. I was (am) not feeling so good. Low energy.
And what do we do then? We get positivity!! We gather as much positivity as we can and hold on, hold on tightly until it is a bit easier. And then a bit easier. I don’t know about you but I NEED POSITIVITY! I need it… I search for it, I gather it, I create it, I think about it as much as I can, which is not easy when you’re feeling low. After I got my feelings out, of course, there is no point of stuffing myself when I’m full of something else, like I’m trying to put water in a bowl that is already full. I hold on to positive things and memories, I grab it and do not let go in my mind when by body can’t move, when my emotions are too high… I just breathe and bring the presence to me. I remember everything I want to do, I remember my passions…
No negativity for me thank you, I value myself too much for that. I have learned that other way drags me down like a rocket to the ground. I don’t like being dragged down. So, no negativity for me, thank you. I love myself and my life too much for me to lose my energy on stuff I can not control or affect.
And when in some kind of emotional/mental limbo, what to do?
I want to share positivity with you guys and girls… I NEED IT and I think that maybe you need it. Either way…. Baila! (or not… it’s totally optional) 🙂
Most of you get why I would
dislike hate this parade of money called THE wedding of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West just by reading my posts and SPECIALLY by reading my last few posts. The Daily Post wants from me today to “take something I dislike and say why it’s the best thing ever”.
So, why I dislike it? It is not important, it is not relevant, it is not tasteful. It is everything I dislike about today’s society – spending money from fake popularity on socially completely not important things by people who are “celebrities” by making crappy music and being a reality show star.
Bleeeeh. (vomit face)
The only thing I dislike more than this is the media who shoves them into my face.
(another vomit face)
So, lets pretend for a second that this fake wedding of a marriage that is probably going to last less than my deodorant and on which they will spend an amount of money large enough to place all of my family and relatives secure with decent lives is awesome.
I had no idea, so I turned to Jimmy Fallon. Hit it Jimmy.
p.s. I had to read something about it and they have scheduled two weddings, one in Versailles and one in Florence. My head is officially hurting now. I go rest.
The term expectation doesn’t exist in my mind right now.
I can’t EXPECT. It does not work that way. I have no money right now and no possibility to work, but I can HOPE that that will change soon.
East of my country and half of neighbour countries are under water – literally, and I can HOPE that this crisis will end as soon as possible and evacuated 15 000+ people can go back. I HOPE that they have something to go back to.
My heart is big when I see how much are people helping, Really, every single person does what ever they can to help people affected, animals, cattle… With food, water, clothes…
What do I expect? I can’t expect. When I expect something – from me or from life, I get deeply frustrated. Because life doesn’t OWE me that. It is not something I have a right to. I don’t get to be spared from life.
I hope. And go slow. Slow and secure.
The dam build up to protect couldn’t take the pressure of river Sava anymore. More than 15 000 people are evacuated from yesterday. The damage is over 1 billion euros, the cattle had to be left behind, the crops and fields are ruined, the houses are nothing but dust. This is going to take a lot to recover from.
The danger is not over yet.
Humanitarian help is sent from everywhere, but mostly from Croatia. In every city we have places where people come to bring food, clothes, blankets, water, medicine, hygiene products, baby food…everything. People are waiting in lines for the buses they take them to affected areas, so they can help evacuate children and old people, help build the dams, just to help… Enormous compassion is at every corner and I hope that it makes some difference for the people who have lost everything.
I am not in the affected area, thank you for your concerns. I would not be home, let alone on internet if I was evacuated.
The damage is tragic, but what gets to me the most are the people who are evacuated from their now under water homes and the animals who had to be left behind to die.
There are lines open for people who want to help animals as well and volunteers go to flooded areas to save animals.
The campaign for election in European Parliament have been canceled and the money goes to the people affected and to help the rescue teams. The leading humanitarian organisation here, Caritas is giving money also. Ordinary people are giving all they can give. There are many places in the country where the everything necessary is collected.
For the people abroad there is a number of the bank account on which they can help, but I have seen few numbers so I don’t want to give disinformation.
If you want to help, there is a way. I will try to find the number that is 100% true so you can donate.

You don’t understand Croatian, but you do understand videos. I couldn’t share just the video so click on the page and then video.
For the last few days, it has been raining and cloudy. in the capital – where I am it is mostly cloudy and windy for a week now, but no heavy rains. The rest of the country was not so lucky.
Heavy rain and wind have started to cause problems about three days ago and with rivers levels going up the floods have started to threat the whole area.
Unfortunately, the rainy weather didn’t stop and the rivers just kept rising.
The whole country Bosnia and Herzegovina is under emergency state, as is Serbia. The floods are severe, people are evacuated by helicopters and boats, the houses are coming down like they are made from paper and the rivers Sava and Dunav, Bosna and Drava are on the very high level. Help is sent from everywhere, Croatia, Slovenia, Germany, even USA in every way – helicopters, medical assistance, rescue teams, food and water. Yesterday it become drastic and we are watching the news, reading the internet portals… There have been several deaths by the floods already and some people are reported missing. The water is taking everything in front of it, for 48 hours people captured on a roof of a factory were waiting to be saved because there was no way to get to them, only by air.
Today is the worst. The Sava is treating to flood. In Serbia it is announced that the storm named “Tamara” is coming. People are cut off and scared.
The floods have reached Croatia, the eastern part, people are building dams from sand bags. I have family in Slavonia, I have family in Bosnia and Serbia. Thankfully, they are all fine.
The dams have breached in some area today and people are being evacuated in military bases and schools. Damage so far is severe, both in human and financial terms.
My mind is today with my neighbours and eastern par of Croatia. May this pass as soon as possible and make no more damage.
I wanted to write this. I live here, I wanted the world to know what is happening.
We are just at the internet all the time, tracking, asking and watching the news, communicating via Facebook to see what is happening.
I made this dessert up. I mean, I am sure that something like this already exist, but I didn’t look for anything, I had in my mind what was I gonna do and how. 🙂 And by the title, you can’t even tell that I am not in fact a marketing pro…
The only thing I adapted was the cookie crumbles on top, it was originally supposed to be chocolate decoration – sliced to make wavy shapes. I know… Awesome.
But in absence of milk or cooking chocolate I’ve remembered that I like to eat pudding with biscuits/cookies. And… voila! The idea was made in making. And – the dessert is gluten free!
Double pleasure - Chocolate & Vanilla Pudding
Chocolate pudding – gluten free
Vanilla pudding – gluten free
1 Liter of milk (500 mL for each pudding)
Sugar – 2-3 spoons for every pudding mixture
Cookies – crumbled
Read the behind of the pudding mix bag. I usually put half a liter of milk aside and from that I take 6 spoons of milk into a bowl. The rest I put on a stove on light flame. In the bowl I add sugar (2-3 spoons) and content of the bag – he pudding powder. I stir the mixture by hand until the rest of the milk boils. I remove it from the stove before milk goes over and then put it back now adding the thick mixture from the bowl while stirring. I let it cook for a minute or two, mixing with spoon and then pour it in the prepared cups. It is very important that the inside of a cup, or glass, or a bowl, wherever you put the pudding in is wet, because otherwise the pudding will stick to the inside of it and it will be impossible to get out like I did in this recipe.
I made the pudding from vanilla first and pour it to the half of glasses. Then left them to cool in the fridge and half an hour later I repeated the thing with chocolate pudding. When that was done, I pour it to the top and left to cool down. After another half an hour I placed the pudding on plates with a help of a toothpick (go with a toothpick around the inner side to detach the pudding completely from the glass). I put the cookie crumbles on top and strawberries on that. Yumm!
Daily Post asked today: The friendly, English-speaking extraterrestrial you run into outside your house is asking you to recommend the one book, movie, or song that explains what humans are all about. What do you pick?
My heart is racing.
I want to show you something.
I couldn’t find it for an hour, it is not available because of copyrights, it is very hard to find any clips of it.
It is a movie from 1989. called The Abyss from James Cameron.
Did you see it?
I have found the clip that says “deleted scene”, it is the only way to find it…
Watch before they take it down.
My hearts is really racing. I am always so struck by this movie who speaks the truth 25 years after it was made.
You should watch one more video.
This one calls for reaction. Passive and agressive seems to be general emotions we nurture. Hate. Even when we know that hate isn’t the one who is going to save us. Even when we know love is our safety net. Life jacket. Rope hanging from a cliff holding us. We have to choose love. We have to choose love before that moment we are in the ocean. We can’t rely on love to come to our rescue at the last moment. What if the last moment is to late?
It is May. I have to write this to remember it, because I am sitting at a laptop covered with my blanket while outside it is raining and wind is blowing so strong I hear the rumble and creaking of the windows and in the pipes…
And it is freaking cold!
But… The flowers I got as a present don’t mind any of that. They are blooming and defying the coldness. The fact that they are inside helps.
I hope you like a bit of pink in your life today.
I am feeling crafty and in a search for a project away from the computer. 🙂
