I’m a girl which never takes a break… I will always keep on going at all costs. Heck, sometimes I don’t even take a break to cry and have a proper “breakdown” moment, but I deal with everything on the go or by swiping it “under the carpet” until I can, at some point, deal with it.
I just ride, ride and ride, I succeed, I fail, I get disappointed or I get proud, about myself or about people which I encounter… But I feel that I never take a proper moment to just “be” and process everything that’s happened, good or bad, people which I’ve met, etc.
Being attached to laptop, camera and social media, every single day 0-24 and being a mom of a 1st grader keeps me going like a crazy machine and while I’m present.. .I never actually am… So often it feels as if I have dreamt my day-to-day life as I never get to catch that beautiful glimpse and deepness of something/ whatever has happened.
For instance, I’ll have a photo shoot which I’ve been planning and organising for a long time, the photo shoot will go well, I will be proud of the outcome, but I have about “2 hours” to be proud of it and concentrated on it, then I need to move onto the next thing, task, person, emotion, etc… I feel that too often I don’t live the beauty of a certain moment because there is always another task and moment awaiting around the corner and my schedule is merciless…
Could this be the curse of modern times? That you’re always “so busy” doing multiple things at the same time and never actually live in the precious moment which will never come back or repeat itself in the exactly same form, moment or person.
How to be happy? Well, I have come to conclusion that one of the biggest things which you can do in order to be truly happy, even just for a few hours is to completely tune yourself out of your usual daily routine, forget your scheduled life for a day, gather a bunch of your closest friends, hide your phone somewhere deep down in your bag and enjoy an afternoon by talking to each other, making jokes, eating good food and enjoying the moment that you’re in.
This is what I did yesterday and it felt so liberating! I was for 6 hours straight only concentrated on that precious moment in time, with the best of people, having the best of conversations, laughter sessions, great food and some nice bubblies! We didn’t needed any electronics, not even music because we were producing the best of entertainment to each other by all being present and loving the moment that we were in.
True happiness comes from the inside and your closest friends do know how to get the best out in you, so surround yourself ( if you can ) as often as possible with people who make you laugh, make you feel special and love you for who you are.
How to be happy? Just be… It’s that simple, yet we make it sometimes so impossible.

For a moment I thought I had written this – I feel like I just keep on going, non stop and while I do know its not healthy its the way I handle things. Just sweep things under the rug.
Oh and what a beautiful coat.
I am the QUEEN OF OVER COMPLICATING!!!! Oh man, isn’t it so true that we can make up our mind to be happier?!?!

Yes, we absolutely can, it’s not that easy to do it, but it’s absolutely possible!
I’m in love with all these little details and how you make the simplest outfit look so damn cool! Great job, hun!
Thank you dear Iga! 🙂 :*
I suspect, like most of us, You, too, know the solutions to our modern day problems. Would that we were strong enough to carry them out. But would we be happy?
We either is or we ‘ain’t.
Smart coat, Natali. Love it with the red.
Todo tu look está lleno de detalles! Me encantó!

Hi Natali! What a great post and food for thought. I really enjoyed myself reading, what’s more, it was what I need to read right now. I am sick with a flu and realised that only when I am getting sick I allow myself to relax which is absurd right? I think we all need to take a break once in a while and rest properly while enjoying time with friends, family, doing things we love etc. I really love my daily routine and working on my blog etc, but we should pamper and take good care of ourselves 🙂
Your look is so classy and beautiful! I really like your aesthetics!
Thanks for sharing and have a great week!
Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting! I’m so humbled and happy to read that this post has helped you and
that you’re agreeing with me on these thoughts about happiness. Much love to you!
You look beautiful!!
