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

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.

So many things in my life come this close to working out but eventually they don’t. At this very moment when this happens, I am overly frustrated but after I calm down and think clearly I realize that maybe it was for the best!
It was when I graduated and I was this close to work in a big advertising agency that I interned at before and everything was almost perfect until I moved out of the country to a totally new country. I had to start from scratch. I had to post my resumes all over the websites and starting looking for internships again. It took me a hell of a time to do that but eventually it worked out and I found a job.
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!

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.
