This blog started years ago as a fun place where I’ve been just sporadically publishing my outfits with almost no text at all or just a few lines and additional photos from my everyday life, but nothing too “constructive” or with any other point than having some sort of online diary and leaving it to the Internet universe to discover my blog and engage or follow if people wanted to. I didn’t put much thought into this whole “blogging” thing up until 2 years ago when I have come to terms that I care about this blog too much to let it go and that I want it to be more than some online diary which is just out there, in the sea of 1 million other active and nonactive, similar blogs.
Good Saturday my dears! I’m a day late with my usual Friday roundup but I wanted to still put out a favourites post, so I’m sharing them on this Saturday morning and hoping that you’ll like it as much as my other “5 for Friday” posts. 🙂
Couple of days ago, I watched a movie and while it was an awesome comedy which made me laugh a lot, it actually shook me up for a moment and made me think… It made me think about the fact of “needing”. I wondered where does this feeling come from? I have and still see it’s presence in my life. Needing this, that or somebody has always been part of my daily life. How many times do you catch yourself needing something or someone?
True, there is a beautiful comfort in having somebody to share your life with, to lay out your worries and thoughts and not get judged, there is a great feeling of having something, like a good car that you can get around with, a home to have the roof over your head, etc. BUT! How about the daily needs of things and people which we often think that we can’t live without? Then you wake up someday, by your choice or by a “mistake” and realise that you, in fact, can live without so much and still be the happiest person alive.
I can tell you that when I had the most in my life ( materialistically ) and was constantly surrounded by and at the same time needing lots of people, I was the most unhappiest. Cleaning out your closet of unnecessary things which you though that you NEED, cleaning out your life of bad influence and people with the wrong energy, friends or even relatives that you thought you NEEDed to be happy or complete, can bring such a closure and shine a new light in your life.
Sure, it will also bring you to face the mirror and the person, the only person that you truly need to be in touch with – YOUR INNER SELF. If you can look yourself in the mirror for longer than a minute ( not counting you getting ready for a night out and putting your make up on 😀 ) tell me how incredible and movig that was for you?! That moment of realisation that you’re special, you’re strong and that when you’re best friends with yourself, you’ll conquer anything and everything… You won’t be needing things and people, because you will see them in a completely different way. You’ll see them as a true gift and enrichment of your life, rather than a discomfortable feeling of “having-not having” and needing!
Everything you need or ever might NEED, you have it all hidden inside of you. The biggest power and all of the beauty are within you. Stop wasting them needing an approval from things or people… Stop needing other people or things to fix up your life and make it special. You need yourself, so let go of the chains and start breathing… Without needing! 🙂
Happy Wednesday everybody!

Hello Wednesday! Nice to see you, you look very promising, let’s see what you have “in store” for me! 🙂 How are you my dear readers? Can you believe that we’re already approaching the end of February and that the Winter months are almost over?
Zum-zum! My wake up call rings, I look through my window and it’s still pitch black outside… I guess we’re not that closer to Spring as I’ve been hoping for. 😀 It’s only mid of February but it feels great to start a new week with new plans, new work assignments and new adventures, no matter what’s the weather! It’s crazy how much difference a week in one’s life can make!?
They say that creative and artsy souls are always messy people and their bedrooms/ homes/ work spaces are always in some kind of “creative” disorder but they swim wonderfully in their own unorganised world and still get everything done and come through with their plans and final product.
Perfection? Why the heck didn’t I realised SOONER that such thing does not exist and that trying to chase it and become it will only take you to the darkest places, tear your soul apart and make you completely loose the sight of what matters and what’s real?!
Fantastic Wednesday is in front of us dear people so let’s get the best out of it. I have this incredibly big and positive fighting spirit/ mode going on and right now, nothing seems difficult or impossible to go through with.
