It’s such an amazing feeling, being relieved. You can get this feeling when doing things as simple as smelling some fresh air or as intense as letting your boss know that you are done with a project right before your deadline.
Let us look for things that make us more relieved! 🌸
Which is more important; learning from the past or planning for the future? Sometimes we just keep dwelling on what has happened in the past instead of keeping an eye on our future. We’ve been through situations, met people and took actions in the past that shapes how we are. Some past events push us forward and other bring us down, but should we let the past control our future?
It’s obvious that you could never change anything that already happened, but you are definitely capable of planning for the future and making things happen. It’s really important for us to plan for what to come ahead. Not everything we plan for must necessarily happen but at least we have a plan in mind that would help in achieving what we want in the future.
So to answer the question of which is important, both are! We should learn from everything that has happened to us in the past to be able to face a brighter future.
It’s so hard to see your own flaws. We always see our good qualities and keep highlighting those, who wouldn’t. But sometimes you just need to pause for a second and judge yourself.
I believe my worst quality is … thinking too much about everything which actually drains my energy. I give thinking more time that it deserve. Instead I could be doing much more stuff!
I have learned that anything that already happened doesn’t deserve to take any of my time because thinking about it won’t change it.
You can’t change yesterday or think of tomorrow, you can only live today

I have always wondered what would make a person happy! Tough question, ha? Some people are good people and by that I mean that they become happy when good stuff happen. When they succeed, feel appreciated or even help someone out.
Other people are just plain bad, their source of happiness is another person’s sadness. This kind of people enjoy gossiping or seeing other people fail. It’s hard to imagine that there are people out there who are lonely enough to choose to be happy on the expense of seeing someone else suffering.
Choose wisely what makes you happy, if it’s a feeling or something materialistic. At the end of the day, always remember that happiness come within and it’s an attitude that you choose to live by. Good people or bad people, all was well with the world.

A couple of years ago I realized that one of the things that gives me peace and keeps me calm is reading. The enjoyment of reading a story and living within it is absolutely priceless. Reading made me look at things with a different perspective.
The last book I read was “Adultery” by Paulo Coelho, needless to say that he is an amazing writer and he is very descriptive. I enjoyed reading this book so much and it helped me realize that no one’s life is perfect, but its attitude towards your lifestyle is what matters.

Honesty! Its definitely the best way to communicate with other. Although some people mix up between being honest and being rude, since there is only a fine line between both but honesty will always be the best way to be true to yourself. The more you are honest with others the more others would be honest with you.
Some people out there don’t like to be told the naked truth in all occasions and they always want you to sugarcoat what you say first and in my opinion that is wrong. I say keep being honest, but at the same time don’t hurt others with your honesty 🙂

So many things changed my views over the past couple of years but what changed them the most was travelling. Going to new and different places and meeting with people from different backgrounds and cultures changed me! It made me see things from a different perspective. It helped become a less judgemental person. I realized that everyone is so different and each one have the right to choose what they do, how they dress and even what they want to eat.
The more I meet new people the more fascinated I become with the fact that people coming from different backgrounds usually have different views. The way we were raised also plays an important role in how we shape our views. But when we grow up, we start deciding for ourselves and knowing if we are willing to change our views or not.
Its not wrong to change your views but it’s wrong to change your views and you are not convinced with them.

Sometimes all I want to do is to get lost in a simple activity that makes me feel free of everything, free of stress, free of thinking and free of people around me. You owe yourself some quality time because that would definitely help you in recharging yourself to be able to face another tomorrow.
The one and only simple activity I prefer doing would definitely be listening to music. I feel alive, every single beat makes me more into music. A good song that has a good lyrics can make me forget about almost anything happening around me. Music makes me feel that the world could be a better place full of organized melody and soothing words. Music is “My Zone” !
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Mentor Me.”
I have always thought of who would have been my mentor until i knew the answer, the only mentor I had was LIFE! It taught me so many things. Sometimes it makes me feel weak and then I realize that it actually made me become stronger than ever. Life taught me that people come and go, and life goes on. And that everything happens for a certain reason even if we don’t want to believe that. You get heart broken for a reason, you lose your job for a reason and you even know new people for a reason.
Life taught me to be spontaneous and at the same to think carefully when taking a decision concerning my life. My only mentor showed me that things change, people change and nothing stays the same ever, even me! It also taught me that the harder I fall the quicker I should stand up again. Life convinced me that you should never ever depend on someone and that the only person you should depend on is yourself. I am thankful that I managed to learn so many things although I am still in my mid twenties. So many lessons learned !
