Easter Time… sweet chocolate day!!

And just because it’s Easter Time, let us celebrate the time of Love and getting together.

Even far from Home and Family, you do what you can to spend some time with meaningful people.

People who make everything seem better, happier and easier. Surround yourself with those who make a difference in your life, those who connect with you. Those who make your time worth while.

To those whom I wish they were here, I send all my Love!

Wine&Love

Because wine is considered the Nectar of Love, what could be more appropriate than the synchronicity between your ideas and your wine?

With a few glasses of wine one becomes the most fearless of beings, capable of their true, inhibited self.

One is capable of saying “I Love You” with no reservations, with no games.

Wine becomes the excuse to do what you don’t have the courage to do without it. It relaxes you, it makes you smile and it makes you softer.

That’s why it’s such a pleasure sharing a glass of wine with your Man. You’re sharing a simple pleasure of Life, a tiny gesture of Love.

I cherish that thought but for now I share my wine with my friends, with the ones in my life who became part of me. Happy Easter and cheers to US!

May Health and Love bless us throughout our lives!

Questions, questions, questions…

When you have no idea what the future holds, you just try and keep it together. When you face the reality that it might not go the way you always thought it should and would be, your mind starts playing games.

You over analyze every bit of everything. You become an over thinker. There’s no smooth way of putting it.

A billion thoughts per second which your brain can’t process. You can’t isolate them and look at them from the outside.

You have no answers. Only questions.

And you can’t stop yourself from thinking it all. It’s the speed of light within your mind…. Should I, shouldn’t I? Questions, questions, questions. A million different IFs?

Try and step aside. Try and look after yourself today. One day at the time.

And keep the dreams alive.

Regardless of them ever happening or not… what’s the point of assuming they will never happen?!

So why not assume they will happen?!

Sooner or later. Be patient.

Look forward to whatever is out there.

You may want it so much… but if it’s not meant to be yours, let it go.

And something one day will come to you.

To be yours to keep, love and treasure.

Energy in Motion

Some people just have an ability to see YOU.

They look in your eyes and you instantly know they are there.

They are PRESENT in that moment.

They simply connect straight to you. Straight to your soul.

You don’t need words.

It’s pure energy in motion.

Beautiful energy.

Not only you don’t need words as you cannot put it into words.

There’s no description for Chemistry.

There’s no description for Connection.

One touch and you know that person shines from within and lights up all of you.

You don’t know What it is.

You don’t know How.

You don’t know Why.

You just feel.

And you dream that one day you’ll find that feeling again. ##loveandeverydayaffairs #myblog #energy #lightwithin #shineon #energyinmotion #brightside #connection #touch #awesome #personalblog #live #love #life #lifeblog #beyourself #keepsmiling #yinyang #letgo #daydreamer #kiss #sensitive #intense #believe #dreambig #dreambigprincess

One Hug, One day

Some hugs feel the tightest yet the most relaxed.

They allow you to be in the moment as you are.

Some hugs just feel forever.

Others are just there, in your mind and your imagination. They are not yours to keep. They are not real.

Your mind craves for the day they might just be real, yours to keep and forever.

Your mind craves for Connection.

But sometimes it’s just not there, it’s purely the result of your vivid imagination.

You just keep believing one day it will be real.

Live your Dream

I think often of what it means to have a Dream.

For a long time I thought I didn’t have a Dream because I didn’t have a Plan. This is my ugly truth. I don’t have a Plan. I don’t have a goal set up for a certain timeframe. I’m not that organized. And there are things I want to live Now. Others in a few years. But I can’t really break it down to the detail of what is it I want, when and how I’ll get there. Another ugly truth… I really have no clue on how to achieve my dreams. That’s why for a long time I thought I didn’t have any.

I thought my only Dream was finding Prince Charming… well… what if there isn’t a Prince Charming for me? What if there’s no ‘Love of My Life’ for me? Do I become an empty cup forever, with no hopes, no aspirations?

When I came to Dubai, I came for a Job. I didn’t have a vision. I didn’t have a Plan. I didn’t have a Dream.

I didn’t know if I’d fit in. Didn’t know if I’d succeed. But I felt like I needed to do it. So I did.

Slowly I realized I could fit in. Maybe there would be a tiny space for me, even if for a short period of time. I’ve been here for 3 years. And in these 3 years I feel like  I’ve done more, seen more and learned more than in my whole life back home. Some people just don’t belong in one place, they belong to many places.

I learned I do have a Dream… the problem is that I don’t have only one Dream… I have so many different ones… and I have no idea on how to bring them through. But I still feed them in my mind.

I take one tiny little dream at the time. Each new country I go to is a tiny dream. Each new place that stuns me is a tiny dream. Each experience I thought I would never get, is a tiny dream.

I started believing dreams come in small steps. Starting my Blog was a tiny dream. And here I am feeding it.

I dream of travelling the world.

I dream of having time and money to LIVE, to GO everywhere.

I dream of living in a place of peace… but never isolated.

I dream of a small place by the beach back home.

My plans to make it happen? None.

Let me rephrase: How am I going to make them happen? I have no idea.

I have no idea if I’ll ever get there. But I’m doing my share… step by step, one tiny dream at the time. Plus, dealing with setbacks. One setback at the time. Life is not a fairy tale. (Even I know that!)

But I still feed the idea they will happen somehow, somewhere and at some point.

Do you understand now why I’m a Daydreamer? I want it all. I desire it all. Everything that will make me happy one day. I want to believe it. I need to believe it.

And of course… as you might guess… I didn’t give up on Prince Charming yet. (I mean, I did. But I chose to Believe again…)

I still dream of the house with a garden and a pool. A cat and a dog. Kids.

Lots of laughter, probably some tears along the way.

Lots of kissing and hugging.

I dream of the One who will see Me.

I believe Life will find a way to bring me to my Dreams… I’m doing my share, as best as I can.

Today is Woman’s Day

I hear many ladies saying there’s no need for the existence of Woman’s Day. As we are equal everyday in every aspect, and since women are nowadays free, independent and stronger Human Beings than ever. We are given the same job opportunities, we are treated as per our performance review and recognized for our diplomatic skills.

My questions are: are we really given the same job opportunities? Are we really treated as per our performance review? Are our diplomatic skills a real asset or plain common sense?

From my experience I can’t say I ever experienced obvious discrimination for being female. But I did get the feeling of not getting a promotion merely because I wasn’t a man. And I can say that it had nothing to do with company policy. I just had been unfortunate on the person responsible for making the decision. I was unfortunate on his perspective regarding skill sets. Or specifically, on my skill set.

I still progressed, just in a different direction, with other people, with different takes on how to manage people.

So nowadays, we are so used to this day-to-day equality that we seem to have forgotten that it hasn’t always been like this. There was a time in which Women weren’t allowed to vote. In which Women belonged in the kitchen, in the house looking after the children. They were not recognized as socially equal. And now here we are… at least we don’t feel inequality or discrimination in an obvious way. At most, we debate whether women are paid the same or get the same job opportunities… all of this if we are referring to the ‘civilized world’.

womans day

Let’s pretend for a minute we had been born in some lost corner of the world, where society didn’t evolve that much.

Let’s pretend for a minute we live in a country where women are stoned to death as a way of punishment? Where female mutilation is acceptable? Where girls can’t go to school simply because they are… girls? Where women can’t make a decision of going to the gym, to the doctor, to study, to travel? Where women aren’t allowed to drive? Where women are neither allowed to be in the same space as men nor shake their hands? Where the value of a daughter is a burden instead of a promising new Human Being in this world? Where a woman who became a widow is raped as part of the local ritual? Where children and teenagers are sold as mere objects? Where children and teenagers are to be married to old men?

And yes, this all exists in the 21st century around the world, in lost forgotten pieces of land which go by the name of Countries.

Each country has their own culture and let’s not mistake cultural traditions and habits with fundamental Human Rights. The world is changing. Many countries are adjusting their view on Women’s Rights, allowing their society to try and catch up with first world practices. But in spite of it… many countries are choosing not to move on and keep whatever heritage they have.

So, before we so quickly judge and reiterate ‘we don’t need a woman’s day’ because we are as free, strong and independent as men… why don’t we think again?

What perspective would we have, had we been born in a ‘third world’ country?
