Playing with Love

Does Love always have to be heavy?

It seems to me that… no!

Love shouldn’t be anywhere near heavy.

It should be light, in every way.

Light as in not heavy, light as in shiny, light as in your guiding light!

Sometimes it becomes heavy… it’s not always simple.

It’s not always what you wished for.

But most times I’d say it should be playful.

What I remember the most about being in love was feeling light, safe and playful. I was laughing all the time.

Every tiny meaningless thing made me laugh.

Playing with Snapchat also makes me laugh… turning the Love theme into something light and fun is always a good option when you really don’t want to dive your mind into the depth of it (not always possible).

About Birthdays!

Well here we are again.

One more year went by just like that!

I thank for what I’ve lived and loved in this past year.

I thank my friends for being a part of my adventures, my silly moods, silly jokes, silly crying, and everything else.

Time doesn’t pause.

The world keeps spinning… and we need to make sure we spin with it!

The Perfect Picture

How perfect is this?

It just captures pure beauty… simplicity.

It captures the free spirit, a connection in a contrast.

The synchronicity of a moment.

The peaceful curiosity.

I absolutely love this picture (I didn’t take it though)!

Saudade

Portuguese word with no accurate translation but this one represents its spirit…

For how many people would you say you feel “saudade”?

Some of them know it’s a given, that you miss them, that you love them.

Some will never know the love they left behind and just how strong “saudade” can be.

Well, even if they don’t know, it’s there.

Silently existing.

But still there.

Wipe your feet… metaphorically speaking 😉

Some people say the right person is yet to come.

Others say there’s no such thing as the right person.

And then there are those who say he will never come.

I believe he will come.

There’s a saying in which the right person will only come once you’re ready to take on a relationship (or maybe – THE relationship?)

Well… I’m ready.

Where’s my honest, smart, funny, adventurous man?

How long will it take until he finds me?

I’m not that picky.

However… whoever he is, he needs to bring Good with him. Enough with the constraints.

Let it be someone who knows what they want.

Let it be someone who adds his light to mine.

Clear minded.

Sure of himself but humble enough to understand what kind of woman he wants by his side.

Don’t bring your second life, as I want to be the only life.

The one who is there at all times.

The one who wants to be proudly mine.

I wait patiently, knowing that better to have no one, than someone full of lies.

Better to have no one, than someone empty… empty in courage, empty in vision, empty in love.

So, yes. I’ll allow you into my soul, but definitely, wipe your feet at the door.

Quick Note on Honesty

What to say about Honesty?

I guess this says it all… the highest form of intimacy.

It’s a form of respect, appreciation, willingness, and ultimately intimacy.

When you expose yourself to the point in which you reveal your thoughts, your way of thinking to another person.

When you trust them enough to tell them everything and anything.

When you trust you’ll be understood.

Sometimes you are. Sometimes you are not.

But at least you were honest. You shared your truth.

You’ve done your part. The rest is up to the other.

It’s a risk and it might be painful.

But rather dealing with real consequences than the illusion of untold truths.

Strong and Proud

Can one look reflect ones hopes and dreams but also fears? Can one in a tiny second go through an endless parade of thoughts and wishes?

For the first time I publish a picture of myself on my blog.

An open face picture. A selfie. Taken on a New Year’s Eve, welcoming 2017.

And I remember it as if it was today. I’m not that fond of selfies but I have my narcissistic moments 😋 and there I was… trying one after another determined to get a proper one.

And I remember so vividly of thinking… what do I wish for 2017? And in that precise moment I clicked the pic.

I retained right then and there all my thoughts, dreams and fears.

The biggest one was the desire to be strong, to be proud of myself. That was the challenge I set myself for the coming years.

And today (could be any other day, but for some reason, it came out today) I proudly post my picture, my words now have a face.

I realize I have accomplished the goals I set that night.

I do stand strong. I do stand proud.

Obviously, I have ups and downs (don’t we all?!). We all have moments in which we wish to be better people.

But life is as it is. You are who you are.

You just need to respect yourself. Some things take time.

And if you acknowledge them, you can work on them.

You can do better and be better. It’s your choice.

To work on yourself.

To grow yourself to the strength you need.

And once you understand you have it within, you finally feel capable of the deep breaths you long for.

It’s a constant work in progress. Embrace it.
