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 for what I still have to live and love!

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

I just want to say… get ready for one more round!!

Time doesn’t pause.

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

We’ve been through it all:

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.

My prayers

Today I’m in the mood of asking something from the Universe…

As always, I’m grateful. For my family’s health, for my friends and for myself.

I’m grateful I’m a healthy human being.

I’m grateful for my virtues (yes, I do believe to have a few!).

I’m grateful for my freedom. My independence is so important to me.

However… I can’t lie… I miss the feeling of Reciprocal Love.

I miss the sense of loving with no restrains, knowing I’m loved back. Knowing that love will still be there after the first few arguments.

I miss the world in a hug.

I miss the electricity in a kiss.

I miss the feeling of being taken care of.

We already know we are independent women.

We already know we don’t NEED men.

As a single woman, I built my life on my own. All of it. It’s proven. I didn’t need a man to do it, as I’ve been able to do it myself.

But… (always a but, right?)

I miss the complicity.

I miss the energy.

I miss the connection .

I miss someone being part of my life.

I miss someone who knows what I’m saying through my eyes.

I miss someone wise enough to see beyond my words, beyond my body, beyond my things.

I miss someone uncovering my soul.

I miss the magical smooth touch.

I miss the goosebumps.

I miss the butterflies in my stomach.

I miss the anticipation.

And I want it all. I dream of it all. I ask for it all.

Until then, may the universe give me the wisdom to wait peacefully.

May it give me the ability to believe.

May it allow me to feel joy in simple things.

I still want to shine. I still want my flame to burn. I still want that spark to exist! Because it’s my spark, not anyone else’s!

I feel like I lose all of it every now and then and I need to find a way of getting them back.

And ultimately… I ask the Universe to guide the Man who will love me unconditionally. The one whom I will love unconditionally.

The One who’ll grow with me. Who’ll accompany me. Who will keep up with me. Who will see me. And value me.

The one who will want to keep me as his treasure. The one who will want me to keep his heart as my treasure.

I ask the universe to guide our hearts to each other.
