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.

Zig Zagging

Do you ever feel like sometimes you are just drained? For whichever reasons it might be…

Sometimes I realize I’m not even writing as frequently as I was before or as frequently as I wished to.

I realize my brain is somewhat overloaded and nothing comes to my mind to write about. And that’s tremendously unusual because it’s something I love doing and I always have something to say about almost everything!

Between ensuring my week goes as smoothly as possible, and getting some fun and social life out there, it seems I’m living my life in auto pilot. And that drives my crazy.

Between managing you car breaking down, getting a rental, thinking if you really need a rental, yes you do need one to go to Abu Dhabi next week, need to go to the supermarket, deal with some stuff for the new apartment, need to go here, there, do this, that… bla bla bla… it never ends.

And sometimes you just want to do nothing, comply with no schedules… you just want to live a bit.

Live in the freedom of doing what you want to do with no imposed restrictions.

I don’t know how people with kids and a family to manage, besides a job, make it! I admire them so much!! It takes courage and so much discipline to do it! You are super humans, really!

But in any case, one does it’s best in understanding these are only phases and they too shall pass until smoother times come along again.

I focus on the amazing things I’ve been accomplishing step by step.

I’m scared somehow they’ll disappear but I keep living in a perspective of building, not losing.

Time will tell if it’s the right strategy.

Synchronized Energy

It’s all in line with the thoughts I’ve been posting lately… love this!

“People want your ENERGY”!

Take the time to actually BE PRESENT, not just your body, but your mind, your soul.

Appreciate the CONNECTION.

Appreciate the energy… and BE YOURSELF.

Copying whatever you see in other people’s social media won’t make you grow.

Quite the opposite, it will make you increase your frustration and decrease your self-esteem, your own value.

Do not diminish yourself by comparing what is not comparable.

Focus on the big things!

Light Speaks

Light definitely has something special about it…

Light can give you a nice warm environment or a cold, sterile environment.

Same when it comes to your inner light.

It can make you shine or it can make you gloomy.

It can make you warm or it can make you cold.

Your Light is your Energy.

Not everyone sees it.

Not everyone will feel it.

But rest assured… we all have it within!

Find it.

Use it.

Your seeds will break your walls

When will you realize you are a result of what you seed throughout?

If your seeds are strong, you’ll also be strong. And once you’re strong… at heart, at mind… everything else will come.

You’ll find yourself in places probably you never thought you’d be. And as you see… yes it’s possible. It was possible.

Don’t build walls around you. And plus… think of it… for every set of walls… there must be a door!

You are the owner of your decision making process.

Be proud that you can actually decide. Even if it’s a small step, a small starting point.

It won’t always be awesome.

Stupid, silly decisions are part of every learning.

You are more than a confined, lifeless object.

You are a complex human being that deserves to fulfill their needs, longings and deepest desires.

Fear will always be there. Deal with it.

Let it accompany you but not stop you.

Be your proud self.

Build yourself and earn the best version of you.
