For some reason, the past week I’ve come across two big contrasts in people’s personalities: the kindness, humbleness as well as pretentiousness, egoism and no compassion for others. My brain and soul are of such kind which never stop thinking, feeling, wondering and live through everything 100%, so the processing of some people and situations might take a while for me… This time of the year, just a little bit before Christmas is when I’m more than ever sensitive to cold, be it from the weather or from the people’s personalities, both get to me strongly.
Patches are very popular this season! I have seen denim, camo and bomber jackets in stores and online which have some really cute and cool patches on them. I simply couldn’t pass on getting this bomber jacket, mostly because of the patch on the back that says “dream”. Yes… I’m a dreamer… Patched up one!
Hihamerkit ovat tämän kauden trendi. Olen nähnyt vaatekaupoissa tai nettikaupoissa farkku-, camo- ja pilottitakkeja, joihin on ommeltu nättejä ja makeita hihamerkkejä. En malttanut olla hankkimatta tätä pilottitakkia, lähinnä sen selässä olevan Dreamer (uneksija) merkin takia. Kyllä…olen uneksija…paikattu uneksija.
I’m a person who barely ever watches TV. If I do watch TV then it’s usually Netflix. I never buy newspapers and I usually never read any even if I happen to see some newspapers at the cashier or at a favourite cafe.
I guess that thanks to FaceBook and my active friends, I do stay quite informed about what is going on in the world, but I take everything I read with a grain of salt and a “distant viewer” approach, meaning that I don’t take everything I read to be true, important or as dramatic as media tries to portray it to be.
Media is a powerful tool, I would say that they have the power to ruin and build the world. That is one of the reasons why I filter every news I come across and don’t allow big amounts of unnecessary information bother me. I like to live in “my own world” the one where I’m aware of what is going on around me and I do fulfil my “duties” but I also prefer to stay in that part of my own world which is ruled by love, goodness, inspiration, creativity and music. I live by the rules of heart and commands of the soul and I don’t know for better… No matter how many times I get “screwed” over for giving too much, loving too much and feeling everything so deeply… I end up hurt and upset quite many times, but I can’t live differently… I can’t “harden” my heart, be more thougher, distance myself from who I am by birth.
Ever since I was a little child, I have been led by my holy trinity of three : love, sea and music. If I had those three surrounding me, I was happy. To love and be loved in return is my motto and the biggest blessing and curse in my life. I always love too much, but so often stumble upon “closed” and hard hearts… In the past couple of years I’ve dealt with those kind of hearts too often and it all made me ask myself: “Where is the love?!” Even by filtering all of the media and information that reaches me, I can not understand all of the shootings and bombings going on all over the world. When was the spilling of blood an answer to anything? Who gives the right to a human to lift his/ her hand over the destiny of another person(s)?
Dear people… Hate, envy and darkness aren’t the roads to be followed… We all have the goodness, love and light inside of us, so the more you nurture them, the more they will prevail the dark side of us, which we all have. We are all made of yin and yang, it’s up to us which side we will choose to be. We can’t and won’t be another Mother Theresa and we don’t need to, that’s not what this article is all about, but I can not but not to realise that people have never been more as distant from each other and the source of goodness and love as they are in 2016. Situation needs to change immediately or we’ll be as good as robots and look more of a Arnold Schwarzenegger from the Terminator movie than a beautiful, sensitive and loving human race that we are supposed to be.
Peace, love and understanding… It’s not so hard to remember, acquire and spread these three words/ actions/ feelings. Let’s start today!
My heart goes out to all those affected in Beirut bombing and Florida shooting.
Good morning my dear readers! How are you doing? How was your weekend? I have to admit that daytime savings and switching our clocks one hour backwards has messed me up a little bit. I’ve been feeling very tired and “lost”. I hope to get back to normal asap. Maybe couple of sunny and warm days might help! 😀
Ding-ding! Alarm wakes me up at 7:15 am. I’m having hard times to open my eyes and get out of the bed. “Oh, but you do need to wake up Nata, otherwise the little one won’t make it to her kindergarten in time.” Darn it, ok, I’ll get up, just that I first check through Instagram a little bit. 😀 After two reminder wake up calls, I finally get up and storm off to the kitchen to make breakfast, wake up the little one, get her ready for the kindergarten and wish her a great day as she takes off. This is how all of my mornings start during the working week. Do I even need to mention how much I appreciate laid-back and no alarm clock weekends?
