My short take on Social Media

About social media… everyone’s so addicted to their social media (including me)!

I’ve watched a Netflix series called “Black Mirror” and so far 2 of the episodes were about the power and influence of social media in your life.

It was a bit exaggerated but it seemed to me the point wasn’t to be taken literally but to be honest, it’s quite close!

It got me thinking of just how close.

Obviously we post the best of us… we post the “interesting” stuff… travels, nights outs, lots of smiles, we want to show every outfit, blah blah blah.. and don’t say it’s not true… for girls at least.

We become more popular because of it.

And I dare saying some people respect themselves more depending on how many likes and followers they have.

They post thinking of how many likes they will get.

So they need to post “juicy” stuff… showing yourself is a super go to get those likes…

Again, I don’t exempt myself from posting a lot but I do refrain from showing my body (maybe if I had a better one 😜)…

I post more than pictures of me. It was a conscious decision.

This is the thing with social media: you can use it to share yourself and your amazing super lifestyle (slightly ironic tone here) or you can use it to share your thoughts and ideas. Or both.

It gives you a voice to the world.

We can create our own posts…

You can create your own original content! In a copycat world!

And no, no one will show their meltdowns, their cries, their financial issues, work crisis, etc.

And good for that! At least some things remain private…

I wish though we could separate the respect we earn as real person in the world vs the respect we think we earn by the amount of likes and followers in a virtual world.

It is still a virtual world.

It is still an illusion of beauty and perfection.

Don’t be pressured by it.

Have the courage to post without thinking of how many likes.

Have the courage to speak your truth just because it’s your original YOU.

Respect everyone and respect yourself.

Freedom of speech still doesn’t allow you to be rude or insulting… old school rules!

Memories of the Future

One year ago I had one of the most unpredictable nights of my life.

I will never forget it.

The memories that once made me trust the future were the ones that melt it away.

But at the time I didn’t know.

It was that same unknown and the beauty of the unexpected moment that made it so significant and so deeply imprinted in my brain, my body and my soul.

Suddenly all I wanted was about to happen.

And it did.

Quick and strong as lightning.

As intense as an explosion of feelings, discovery and love. And as quickly and strongly it arrived, it vanished into thin air…But that would be another story.

This night was the beginning of something bound not to last. But while it lasted, I was happy. I was very happy.

And I say Thank You for that.

I lived love again and remembered what it felt like.

So all these memories have been with me always.

They never faded, never stopped hurting.

They just became lighter to carry.

I carry them proudly as they are part of me.

A good happy part of me.

And for that, they’ll always be precious.

3 Must Have

Sense of Humor seems to me the biggest must have in anyone, especially if that someone is your other half.

If someone makes you laugh out loud, they made your day!

A dirty mind… well we all know how much that increases your imagination…. your thoughts running around freely is a powerful, sexy thing!!

Beautiful heart…. the center of it all.

A beautiful, honest person will always be a comfort.

Will always be your rock.

So if you’re lucky enough to have all of this in one…

And if you’re lucky to be all of this in one…

keep it! Value it and enjoy it!

A bit of credit to you

Good or bad, we always learn something from overcoming both positive and negative experiences.

Even a heartbreak will teach you a lot…

It will show you how much you can love, how much you can suffer and how much strength you have to overcome the emptiness, loneliness, lack of self belief…

You feel defeated in every way…

Time will make you trust in yourself again.

Time shows you the beauty of your spirit and you’ll shine bright again…

You need a time to grief and a time to rise.

What are the things you’re proud of?

What have you overcome?

What were your learnings?

Half as Whole

I wonder if this is the reason… 🤔

Some people tell me women nowadays are too strong, too smart, too beautiful, too independent.

They say men feel intimidated by “too much”… so what are we supposed to do?

To smile and say yes all the time?

To make ourselves silly all the time?

To not voice ourselves?

I don’t understand… if we do all of the above, we’re dull, boring and uninteresting.

If we do speak up, we have a temper and are too strong…

There’s a balance for everything.

There’s a time for everything.

So I’m hopeful some day, someone will take the time and patience to uncover it all and understand that whatever strength, beauty, brains and independence can be part of them too.

I guess it will take a MAN to realize that it’s MINE but it becomes OURS.

I might even not be whole by myself but I sure make it a point of not limiting myself to half.

I rather become two as one.

And still, I’m half as one.

So if it’s too much, there’s nothing I can do.

I can’t make it lesser.

This is me.

A Meaningful Conversation

I can only speak for myself… any other thoughts?

Can we get a gradient light instead of an ON/OFF switch?

In a time in which everything seems easy and automatic, where’s the room for people actually getting to know each other?

Where’s the room for the chemistry and connection?

Where’s the room for the fiery intimacy?

A meaningful conversation has the power to ignite beautiful things… if only people would allow that to happen…

It requires one willing to speak and one willing to listen…

Yes… it’s that simple.

So how come we’re all in such a lonely society?

Sunkissed

Sun is so important is our mood!!!

Its warmth on our skin definitely translates in a body and mind kind of energy.

It awakens you, it makes you just feel better overall.

Sun and Sea seem to have the ability to heal you a bit at the time.

Go in to the sea and allow it to cleanse you, let it wash away all that needs to be taken away from your soul.

Breath.

Let the sunset refill you.

Let it work its magic.
