In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “That Stings!.”
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.
Are you always pressured to live a life that you never imagined to live? Are you doing things everyday that you don’t want to do? Do you have a crappy job? Do you support people who will never support you back ever? Do you drive a car that barely move?
Why are we always pressured?
We should live a life that we choose with circumstances that we create. We should love our daily routines and enjoy the company of the people surrounding us. We should think of what satisfies us not what satisfies others. We should not be forced to do anything that we don’t want to do.
Live a life that you would never regret and live each day as if it is your last. Never allow other people or situations drive you. Don’t waste your time or energy with people that will never lift you up and would put you down instead. Surround yourself with everything you are fond of. Choose a job that shows your skills and talents rather than one that would let you hate each and every day of your life. Be brave enough to join the conversation and say your opinion.
Live Happy & Healthy!
(Read my top post “Thanksgiving Day“)
There are so many times when my head is full of thoughts that I just wish I can express in words. I keep on keeping those feelings inside me but I always ask myself the same questions “Till When?”. Why is it that I have to say how I feel to make others know how I feel? I stay silent hoping that I could be understood.
A smile on my face is always hiding a pain that I try so hard to let go of. Just trying to set more goals and plan more plans that would distract me of the real feeling I am trying to escape from. Sometimes escaping is the only solution when you can’t change the situation.
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Never Too Late.”
Today is a day to be thankful for things in your life. It took me a minute to realize what I want to be thankful for since it was a rough year for me. But the first thing that I wanted to be thankful for is being healthy since we take our health for granted but it’s not! Another thing that I want to be thankful people who stood by me and supported me through my ups and downs (they know who they are). They made me feel special and that I am capable of doing almost everything. They listened to all of my complaints and thoughts carefully. I can’t possibly live without them!
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Shaken and Stirred.”
I’ve never been a really good cook, I barely cook. Sometimes I wish I can cook delicious meals and invite everyone I know so they can try out what I did but that’s just a wish!
The one time I was really proud of myself actually was when I tried making crepes. I felt like I’m the best cook that could ever exist. Although it is one of the easiest deserts to make and I actually followed steps that I found online including pictures and a how-to video so it couldn’t been any easier.
The best thing about cooking is the sense of accomplishment that someone gets when they cook something and it turns out to be very tasty. Besides peoples compliments would definitely give more confidence.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Cue the Violins.”
If my life was a movie, I am sure that it will have different soundtracks and never the same one. Some of the soundtracks would be a happy song and others would be really sad ones. But the main soundtrack of my life would definitely be “All By Myself” by Celine dion (I know it’s a sad song but I really love it). The main instruments used in my life if it was a movie would be the piano, violent and drums!
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Sparkling or Still.”
A day off is honestly the only thing I’m looking forward to right now. A perfect day off for me would be both Sparkling & Still. I like to spend half of it just relaxing and literally doing nothing and talking to no one. Maybe watching TV and sometimes reading a book, which makes me very relaxed. Also, I would spend more time on my blog if I had a day off.
And the other half of my day I like to be all and about, going out and chilling with some friends where we can talk about how long and tiring our week was. Actually I would love to do some shopping too, who doesn’t like shopping? One of the favorite thing to do is relaxing by the beach beach I always imagine that my day off should be more than 24 hours because I always have no time for all the stuff I have in mind to finish.
How come a certain song could be so magical? Hearing the words with the rhythm can make me just sink deep in every tone. The more I listen to music the more it becomes enjoyable to me! A happy day to me is when I listen to a really good song. I find the words I want to say in the lyrics in a good song. I re-live all the words that I listen to as if I am part of the song I am listening to.
I read so many studies talking about how healthy listening to music is to your brain and I totally I agree. I don’t think there was a day that passed by without me listening to music. I don’t necessarily have a favorite style of music that I tend to listen to, I just listen to the song that my heart sings and dances to.
“Daily Post -Daily Prompt”
The best period of my life was definitely the time I was in college. It was a new and a fresh start for me, where I wanted to start everything over and I actually managed to do that. I made a lot of friends in a really short time, I was a member in most the clubs and got good grades in all my courses. I even won a scholarship to Germany where I spent there a whole semester and enjoyed every bit of it.
When I look back at this period, I definitely think of it as the good old days. I am trying to create new memories that I could think of later as the good old days but sometimes that is a hard thing to do so I will keep on working on it.
It’s my all-time favorite quote. We all pass by certain moments which make us ask ourselves why a certain situation happened but we usually don’t have an answer for that. I personally had lots of different experiences when sudden things change in my life without knowing the reason of that change. And then I just tell myself “What’s mean to be will always find a way” and that eventually what is destined is what’s going to happen. It’s all about the art of patience, how patient a person can be until things in his/her life are in order.
Some people think that as long as everything in their life is destined then they shouldn’t do anything about it, in my opinion this is WRONG! You should always work hard to reach what you really want and do your best to make it happen. I believe that not thinking too much about what’s happening and rather enjoying it is the key for a better lifestyle.
