Princess to Queen

Oh SO TRUE!!

A girl believes the power of Love will be enough to change your beloved but “inadequate” other half…

You think you accept him as he is and he just needs time to understand what YOU really value…

You think he will change over time because what you two have is so strong that it keeps you together although you broke up ten times… so if you’re still together, it needs to be significant right?!

A woman will tell you WRONG!

A woman will tell you… girl… you tried, you gave it your best, your all and even yourself by becoming smaller than you really are to accommodate his issues.

It’s time to grow and part of growing is moving on.

It’s understanding these works are no longer in progress.

They are done. Mostly with no change.

So please do change your direction… to someone, something else.

A woman will be heart broken by her decision but will move from where she’s not herself anymore and especially, where she’s not wanted anymore.

A girl will be waiting, avoiding the raw painful truth.

A woman will know how painful it will be, but will not wait because she knows how it will end.

No begging.

No asking.

No hesitating.

You just move.

Woman’s Day

Here’s to the women who go for it.

To the ones who follow that voice and don’t quit.

To the ones who overcome the pain, illusions and occasionally drown in self pity but understand their biggest gift is the gift of Life so they are not allowed to stay in that dark hole for too long.

They do break, they hide, they cry, they feel hopeless, scared, confused but they are still standing.

Standing with a smile.

Because at the end of the day, you’re perfect. You’re healthy.

You’ve got a working brain, two arms, two hands, two legs and feet.

You are a perfect feeling and living machine. So be thankful for that and make the best use of it.

Here’s to the ones who live in difficulty and still Love and provide to their kids with so much sacrifice.

Here’s to our Mothers who showed us how important it was to be strong!

Here’s to the ones who live somewhere where Human Rights haven’t provided for them yet. They can’t do what we take for granted and as a given right.

Here’s to the ones who made History and turned Women from an unacknowledged existence to a leading force of Society nowadays.

Without them, we would not be as free, strong and independent as we are.

Use the strength you were taught and built to use.

So just keep on rolling! And why?

Because you can!

Happy Woman’s Day!

“Dating Around”

I just watched “Dating Around” on Netflix…

I must say I giggled so much…

It was like seeing myself in my not one, not two, not even three Tinder dates!!

The uniqueness of this series is that it shows you the different realities… the guy kind of date, the girl kind of date, the senior kind of date, the gay kind of date!

Not to mention it’s in New York and immediately the memories of my NYC solo trip come back as alive as ever!!

Anyway, about the series and how it portrays the dating app scene… that’s about right…

You go trough so many mixed feelings, sometimes you’re so excited, sometimes you just want to run…

It really is all about… luck?! Maybe?!

I used to think that at some point, you’d have to be lucky enough to get a “nice” guy… then you just ask for a “normal” guy… and then you give up.

It seems there’s no such thing out there.

I feel like saying it’s a Dubai problem but that series was in NYC and they complained about the exact same thing as we complain here: it’s so hard to get a connection, an empathy!

Then I want to say it’s a dating app problem… but then again, plenty of couples met online!

Plus, even if you meet anyone through common friends, still you never know.

He can be the next big illusion, the next big douchebag or, in some kind of miracle, the next big love.

You don’t know until you know.

And to know, you need to take the full ride.

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll break. And you move on.

I finally got tired of the dating game.

I “retired” from dating apps and with it, from the dating scene… yes… it’s a sad reality that one can’t actually meet people other than online.

It strikes me as a surprise too, not just you.

Why did I get tired?

Too many faces.

Too much ego.

Too many fake smiles.

At the end, too many expectations.

You get anxious… is this the one?

Is the next one the one?

It’s exhausting.

So I stopped.

“What should I wear, does he like me, do I like him? Will he want to see me again?”

It brings out the worst of you.

All your insecurities.

It pressures you into “succeeding”, into “getting one”.

Not healthy!

I decided to just let it be… what will be, will be!

Strangers and Secrets

And this is how I feel about my “Love and Everyday Affairs”… after a year of posting my random thoughts, I realize how easy it is for a perfect stranger to know the deepest part of me if they want to.

It’s just one side of me, out of everything else that makes a human being.

It’s just one side but an important one.

And it’s amazing how easy it is to “speak to strangers”. Although it’s only through a screen.

They’re not quite all my secrets (need to keep a few for myself!) but it’s still a lot.

It’s still me and I get a sense that it could be someone else.

Or maybe I’m wrong and I’m just weird. I don’t know.

Valentine’s

Whoever can make you laugh for real, out loud, showing all your teeth and almost making you pee in your pants… they make you happy!

Whoever understands your soul, your brain, your pain but also your shining light… they make you happy!

So make them happy too!

Starting with a lovely breakfast in bed!

A morning of sweet wild loving, pillow talk and embracing that unique piece of time in which you’re ultimately free and ecstatically happy!

Prepare his favorite food, take him out on an adventure or a super nice place.

Prepare a simple surprise but full of meaningful details!

Make him feel like your sunshine! Give him one!

Be your full self… by now he knows your sweet surrender is in itself your biggest gift… but only if he makes you happy!

“Make me happy… I’ll make you happier!”

🌻🌞💫⚡️🔥🌈💙

Still Me

The truth is we change when we want to change or when we think it’s the right time to change.

January 1 comes with dreams of big resolutions, dreams of change and whatever big plans we intend to implement because “new year, new me”… well, case to say “new year, still me”.

No major sudden shifts throughout this month, it’s definitely still me.

All my resolutions will happen whenever I can make them happen.

Maybe I require the right mindset and the right circumstances. And then…

Then I’ll be able to say it’s a new me, regardless of time of the year…

Beauty and Brains

All is said… and rightly said! 🙄

I guess being honest in this “relationship game” doesn’t get you that far because we never know how the other person is interpreting our honesty.

Maybe they’re getting scared or intimidated.

If you shut up, you’re not true to yourself and can’t really digest… plus it’s like you don’t have a voice and just sliding by to see what’s happening next on “the other side”.

Do we always need to wait for that?

My conclusion is that the one person who will not take it as a game and understands what you’re saying instead of feeling intimidated or scared, will be the one with their brains in the right place!

And that’s exactly what you’re looking for!

Beauty and Brains, please! 😜
