Make a wish

Its interesting how its possible to change the whole way of seeing things when meeting somebody inspiring or somebody who we feel connected with. And then, when one day this super inspiring person comes, we do crazy things – we quit our jobs, move out of our homes and leave our friends in order to start building up something because we think this is it! We have expectations, hopes and wishes towards that something and of course, sincere trust that this is how it will stay! But then, something happens, things doesnt go like expected and dissappointment comes. With all our heart we believed that its safe and sure… but actually, nothing is ever sure!

Its hard to admit that some things get to and end and sometimes it takes ages, oh yes, ages to get over the things what used to be part of our lives but are not anymore. Lifes goes in circles. Everything has a beginning and an end. Sometimes the time between an ending and a new beginning may seem long and hard but that is the time for us to stay quiet and calm within ourselves, its for us to heal! And then, when this new possibility, new light comes, it may be scary. We are afraid to get hurt again, to feel all those dissappointments and often we cannot do something because it reminds us so badly those things we had in the past, so we just decide not to do those things, not to feel, not to take responsibility. We run away! But what is life when being constantly scared of doing something wrong or getting hurt?

It´s sure that nothing will ever be the same. We cannot have the same feeling back, the same experiences, the same tastes, looks, the same whatever. It will always be new and different! Lets say that you had this awesome job with all the extras you couldnt even wish for and then one day they just fire you! Couldnt see that coming! Well, its hard to accept that but in one year it will be easier to understand. Maybe you had to loose this job to get a lifetime possibility and travel the whole world so then in 10 years you could give out 3 books what inspire the whole world. Couldnt see that coming either, right!? I want to say that I believe everything has its timing. Things and come to us when we are ready! And things leave us when they have served their purpose!
People come to teach us something and sometimes important people have to leave so even more important ones can enter!

Holding on to somebody or something blocks the new possibilities to enter! Sometimes its not a person, its a feeling! I believe that the most important thing is to forgive and no matter what, to be grateful – for everything there was and for sure everything what is still coming even tho it might not include that one thing or that one person! You will still be happy! You will still be satisfied, if you trust and let go that not what YOU want is the best but what is, right now, is the best that could ever be! Life is full of magic and love and its all around us, its just hard to see while being scared or mad or complicated!
Simple!

Simplicity

“The difference between an ordinary life and an extraordinary life is only a matter of perspective. Pull the blinds. Look around you. It is a mad, mad world and you do not require ten digit bank accounts to immerse yourself in it. Travel down dusty roads without a destination in mind. Climb a mountain and scream out into the void. Kiss the hell out of a stranger. Skinny dip in a lake. Get lost and lose yourself (they are two separate things). Explore the wilderness (especially the one within). Think less of destiny and more of the moment right here. Because when you are old and ill with your loved ones around you, fame won’t matter, nor will the extent of your wealth. You are the sum of the stories you can tell.”

Fire with and within us..

This one is a story through rather scenes..

We had our last bigger trip few weeks ago to Drave (https://www.google.pt/maps/place/Drave/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0xd235d6c26be1ab1:0x72129770c80d5a78?sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwinvpXx4vjPAhXLXRoKHbDcB9AQ8gEIGDAA) after all this area was burned. It was beautiful and sad at the same time. Nature itself is an art but after this kind of occasions turn nature´s scenery into living canvas. All green was turned to brownish-yellowish, only very few places had little green leaves or baby-flowers growing. Our surroundings were full of cremated trees, if you barely scraped yourself onto those, you bet you smudged your clothes. We were driving around and imaging ourselves living in those little villages before the fire came.. How can so beautiful thing at the same time be such a tragedy?
