Personal

Life and death

Seeing in person the very thin line between life and death is frightening. It is very good that no one knows when will the cold death come at your door. And if you have opportunity to meet and talk with people that were in that thin line you will see how they value every day and every opportunity to share that day with the ones that they love.

Value every second of the life and be whoever you want because tomorrow may be late. Tell your loved ones that you love them. Tell them often.

Cherish the life and live happily.

I promise myself

I promise myself by Christian D. Larson

To be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person I meet.

To make all my friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make my optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature I meet.

To give so much time to improving myself that I have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of myself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words, but in great deeds.

To live in the faith that the whole world is on my side, so long as I am true to the best that is in me.

Moments to Remember

father-and-daughter
I stay alone in my room and weep

If I just knew how

I would write you the greatest poem in the world.

 I want to say what my heart has to say

Three years has passed and I still miss you.

Everyday I ask myself

If you could see me would you be proud

Would you tell me that I’m doing great, like you used to

Would you tell me that I could be better?

I cherish every memory that I can remember

But the void that you left gives me so much pain

I can barely breathe.

I try to remember

Your smile so soft

Your look so deep

Your word so kind.

I see you in the beauty of spring

I see you everyday in the little things.

Please forgive me for all these tears I’ve cried.

I promise you

I will always be your little girl

You are always in my heart.

Love

love

I like to write about love. I don’t do it often because I think it is very personal and I’m afraid to express myself. It is not easy to express yourself when it comes to love.

I often ask myself what is love. But most of time I don’t have the answer.  I don’t know if it exists and how can you define love. You just have to feel it, it does not have a definition  You have to be in love so you can understand what it is and how it feels. You just “FALL” in it without asking, without knowing, without wanting.  You will suffer. You will be disapointed. You may humiliate yourself, you may do anything for love. There will be rainy days. But after the rain comes the sun. That’s how it is. you just have to surrender. I can’t promise you that everything and every moment will be good one. But the ones that are good are worth the try. You only have one life, so give allot of  love.

Happy Valentine’s Day to all readers of this bog 🙂

forgive

We are human beings, we have qualities. Some of them are good some of them not so good. How do you decide which one of them is your worst quality? The worst quality may be the one that causes some trouble or causes trouble for people you care.
I think my worst quality is believing in people. I was disappointed many times but the people I care by the people I love. Maybe it happens because of my expectations are too high. When I give 110% for someone I expect it back. And the worst of the worst I find it hard to forgive.

The best of the best is not to have expectations. To live life as it comes. To be happy for the good moments, and to pass those that are not that good.

It is easier said than done. Because every time something happens I blame me for letting myself believe that people are good, that people care for you as you care for them.

I will try first to forgive myself for caring, for hurting myself. disappointment is part of life. So deal with it and go on live your life as you want and not as you are expected to live.

Weekly Writing Challenge: Just Do It

Gimme

Thomas

Oh yes, there was a toy that I dreamed of, and never received it.  Never even asked for it. You would ask me, if I wanted something why didn’t I just ask for it. To answer that, I would have to go back in time. It’s not a long, long time ago, but it seems to me like it was a different world. Actually it was a different world. Entirely different!

I was a child born in occupied country. Everyday challenge for me and my friends was to make it to school and come back home safely. We chose carefully the content of the songs we sang at school. Everyday news was that someone was killed, someone we knew. Everyday news was that someone was held and beaten by the police, just because of their nationality. Someone we knew, someone we love was killed just like that…in the middle of the street.

Like most of my friends parents, my parents also were left without a job just because of their nationality. They struggled everyday so we could live “normal” life. To have what to eat. To have what to wear. To have books so we can learn our language, to learn our traditions and culture.

We were like grown up children. We knew when it was OK to ask for something. When it was OK to say that we need something. How could I ask for a toy when they had enough to struggle for?

But all this didn’t stop our dreams. I dreamed every day and every night that the day will come when we will be free. When we will run the streets without fear of being killed or beaten or abused. We will go to stores and I will buy whichever toy that I wanted. The ones that I only have seen on TV. I dreamed every day and night that the day will come we will be just children, like every child in the world, and not grown up children.

And every day I thank God that the day of my dreams has come and we are free. I will always be thankful to my parents for being tough. For teaching us everything. For taking care of us. And for teaching us what is valuable in this life.

I never got the toy that I dreamed of. But I’m glad that those dark days have gone and at least my children will have all the toys they want and they will have opportunity to make their dreams come true.
