Ohhhh, a box. For me?

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Mystery Box.”

3708

First of all, if I found a box next to my bed with “open if you dare” on it, I would freak out a bit over the fact that someone left a box with English sentence on it and maybe thinking I woke up in a parallel universe where we speak English in Croatia. ๐Ÿ˜‰

If it would say “Otvori ako se usudiลก” I would probably be less worried. XD

And of course I would open it, what kind of question is that?! A beautifully wrapped box? With a “dare” on it? I am WAY to curious not to open it…

What’s inside?

Now that’s a dare for you to guess. ๐Ÿ™‚

Happiness happiness joy joy

Hapiness hapiness joy joy

Today was “the most depressive day in the year”. Well, if it was that will be freakin awesome.

But I want to rant about something else. I cannot help to see a lot of “happiness” theme going on… On WordPress, on social networks, in the news… In conversations about New Year. I was chatting the other day about New Year’s resolutions and stated that it is a bullshit if you ask me. Everything I wanted 6 days ago, I still want! Everything I’m hoping to become, the direction I’m hoping to go…. nope, none of that changed in a day. ๐Ÿ˜€

Beside that I wanted to say a word or hundred about this obsession with happiness.

Yes, it’s really great to strive to happiness I don’t deny that. But you can’t be happy all the time, it’s not possible, it’s not a task, damn it, it’s not HUMAN!

What is wrong with being sad, angry, scared, neutral, intrigued, bored…….etc…? If you were to be happy all the time, how would you know you’re happy? You know you are happy because once you were sad, you know you feel good because you felt bad. How that songs goes “…it’s ok not to be ok…”

I want to stop idealizing happiness in my life. Striving to it – ok. But I am a human not a robot, to programme my feelings. And frankly, I wouldn’t even like it if I could.

Daily Prompt: A Bird, a Plane, You! | No difference between us

Daily Prompt: A Bird, a Plane, You! | No difference between us

So, daily prompt asked me:

You get to choose one superpower. Pick one of these, and explain your choice:

– the ability to speak and understand any language
– the ability to travel through time
– the ability to make any two people agree with each other

From that I choose the last one. Specially now, when here in Croatia we have some serious discrimination going on that can be in theory next week put into our constitution. Hate is turned on gay people, LGBT community for no apparent reason than distraction from very difficult financial circumstances we are in from the world crisis. And no one “deserves” to be discriminated just because he/she is born different, white, black, asian, gay, straight, with blue eyes, with brown eyes…

My wish right now is to sit those ignorant people starting this mess and make them understand how un-Godly is that what they do. I want to sit gay people who did nothing on the other side and made the ignorance flew away from the room. I want to do the same with world leaders, to understand that WE ARE ALL HUMAN and end this nonsense of war between human and human because other humans said so.

That is my choice right now. But, the one power we forget about often and is simply the greatest power of all is the one I choose. LOVE.

I give you beautiful poem written by sister blogger Shetall:

“The power is within me

If I look inside me

I can find various things

Those which can astound me

The power is within me

If I deeply engross myself in me

I find solutions to my problems

Like a puzzled solved gifting me diamonds

The power is within me

If only I learn to love and ignore the bluffs

I will find the power in me”
