Lost love stories. Him and Me: Vol.1

She looked at him straight into his eyes as if she was trying to convey all these feelings of love that had been accumulated since she met him and they made her feel like she would drown.

She looked at him straight into his eyes as if she was trying to convey all these feelings of love that had been accumulated since she met him and they made her feel like she would drown.

He had no idea.. Or did he? He kept telling her typical things regarding work and she found it difficult to concentrate to his words. She gazed at his lips, so kissable indeed, his smart eyes, his gentle yet manly hands.

She knew she couldn’t have him, in all aspects he was a tampoo. She kept dreaming about him almost every night. She dreamt of romantic dreams, him hugging her, lying next to her, her grabbing his hands and softly kissing him on the lips.. The next day she had to play cool, like nothing was going on inside her but there were times that she would interprete every smile of him like a love sign.

The days went by and she was wondering whether she should tell the truth and quit, the truth that she was utterly in love with him and this fact inhibited her working-and not only – functionality. She knew though that the only reason to reveal her secret would be that she deeply hoped that he felt the same. Her confession would give him the opportunity to express his feelings for her and then .. then what? She couldn’t figure out the rest, her mind was stuck in the present, trying to suck in every inch of his image while talking to her, remember every word or move that showed interest so she could secretely live her dream. She had to move on, but she simply couldn’t.

There will be times that she will make fool of herself. She doesn’t mean too.

She’s like a little girl, smiling with her eyes to everyone approaching her. Eyes sparkling with joy and her laughter pure and real as a small child’s. She seems confused. She knows she’s pazzled. She doesn’t want to be reminded of her haze.

«You don’t understand what we are talking about», «no you don’t remember, I’ve already told you so many times». She attends the conversation smiling, trying to fit in. Some times she can, some times she can’t.

Her blurry eyes seeking to remember, to clear the fog. Her mind can’t seem to cooperate. She is here though. She is gentle, she is caring, she asks everybody if they are ok and if they want something to eat.

She just needs your patience, your kind words, your warm hug. She was the one who was patient as you were growing older, and always there by your side. I can’t even start explaining the things she has done for you.

There will be times that she will make fool of herself. She doesn’t mean to. She will wet herself. She will forget to put her underwear in place. She will pour the juice inside her food and she will eat it with a spoon and find it delicious. Don’t make it worse. Don’t make her feel embarassed. She can still feel ashamed, she can still realise that she isn’t the way she used to be. Don’t point out her gaffes in front of others, don’t judge her all the time, don’t treat her like a fool or a sick person.

And if she does something fool, laugh with her, not at her. If she pours juice in her food, try it too. It might taste good. And if she reaches the point where she doesn’t even recognise you, remember that you still recognise her. And avoid doing things that will make unrecognizable to yourself after a few years. Show her your love, cause she needs it and she receives it, no matter what. Show her your love, because you need it too.

Quote of the day: Time limits

There’s no time limit

“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.”

Summer holidays (?)

Happiness is not an obligation, and summer is just a season, no need to prove to anyone that we are having the best time of our lives!

 

beach-blur-bokeh-462030

 

It’s summer! we find ourselves scrolling up and down on instagram and most people post pictures of themselves drinking cocktails ,relaxing at the beach of an island, eating out at restaurants and having fun or do they seem to .

But what about all of us who can’t afford or don’t have the time to go on vacation? Don’t worry cheeky friends ,we are not here to gaze other people lives and forget to live ours!

There are always solutions to have fun in the summer! Here are some ideas and tips :

1) Don’t trust everyone’s happy images on social . Some people struggle everyday but they prefer not to show it. Staring at such pics all day can harm our psychological state and make us sad. Happiness is not an obligation, and summer is just a season, no need to prove to anyone that we are having the best time of our lives!

2)Try and embellish your balcojny or inner place with flowers ,pebbles from the beach,wood and fabric. There great ideas on Pinterest and you can renew your place with little or no money and feel better! When you do that, invite your friends over in the evening and enjoy cold beers and snacks! Bring the summer in your place.

3)Even a two-day trip or just for one day ,could make the difference. Visit a new place or an old but beloved one and spend some happy hours with yourself or company. You could even arrange camping or visit a friend in another place and then you could accommodate them as well .

4)Don’t forget to do things that make you happy: meet friends ,read books and go out as much as you can. People forced to go out by friends have sometimes met their partner ! Don’t stay constantly at home.

There are always solutions ,my advice is: make your own happiness ,don’t try to follow other people paths , and don’t be jealous on their daily activities, or lives ,cause in the end of the day , you never know who is really happy. Let’s just try to be kind and nice to everyone, and enjoy our summer wherever we are.

Till the next post ,

Life decisions

Sometimes, we are supposed to choose our next step,which may lead in a completely different path. We might get out of our comfort zone. 

Hello hello! As spring is coming to its ending, I find myself in a place where I need to change things in my life ,once again .

Have you ever felt overwhelmed by the weight of a dilemma? I guess you have . Sometimes, we are supposed to choose our next step,which may lead in a completely different path. We might get out of our comfort zone.

We may be afraid .Stability saves us from the anxiety and the risk of something new. Right?

Wrong. I strongly believe that the risk of staying somewhere «just because you are too afraid to try something else»is greater than the risk of change.

Because you might remain in a stale place.

I suggest you stop analysing every small detail and grab the base of your sentimental layers. Is it anxiety mixed with craving for something new?

If so, go on!

See you in the next post ,

Cheeky kisses!!!

A new year to come..

Here we are again, right before the new year comes in. What are your new year resolutions ?

Maybe sounds cliché, but all these thoughts and decisions make us move forward and fill us with hope.

What are your plans for tonight ? I will dress up  and stay home with my beloved ones.

I’ll be back soon-soon!

See you in the next post ,

Cheeky kisses!

I am a traveler in my country

I know that we maybe don’t have the time or the energy to go sightseeing in our town, but believe me, it’s worth arranging it!

I feel it’s really beautiful to see your own country as a tourist, from time to time. I recently moved to Athens, and I have been enjoying sightseeing and taking pictures.

I know that we maybe don’t have the time or the energy to go sightseeing in our town, but believe me, it’s worth arranging it!

Here are some pictures of my beautiful Athens:

Be a tourist in your own town, take pictures, enjoy new places..

A new era

Fall. I am in love with it. Every season is beautiful, but in my heart, fall is equivalent to new beginnings.

Fall. I am in love with it. Every season is beautiful, but in my heart, fall is equivalent to new beginnings. I am in love with the golden-brown leaves that fall, the chilling breeze that gives me goosebumps and that sweet melancholy; You know that winter’s coming (I love winter too). Didn’t actually realise how fast this summer went by, but it’s ok. Cause it gave its place to a beautiful fall.

I wish that you’re having a marvellous time. I’ll be around more often, now that the summer’s gone.

Till the next post,

Cheeky kisses.

Book recommendations: «This charming man.»

There was a horrible niggling feeling that this was my own fault. How could I have believed that a man as handsome and charismatic as Paddy would take a person like me seriously?

«This charming man» is a book written by the Irish author Marian Keyes. Paddy De Courcy is young, handsome and a successful politician. This is the image everyone holds for Paddy. But when he decides to get married, ex girlfriend Lola freaks out and moves to another city in order to be over him. Paddy’s women narrate, as dirty secrets are gradually revealed, and things well hidden rise to the surface.

It’s a perfect book for vacations as it’s easy to read, yet covers many strong issues. It’s light yet serious. It combines funny elements among with a well-written plot.

I strongly recommend this book. I am now reading «The brightest star in the sky» of the same author, so I’ll soon let you know what I think about this book too.

18.55

I can’t stop ringing Paddy. It’s like OCD. Like washing hands constantly. Or eating cashew nuts. Once I start, I can’t stop. He never answered and he never rang back. Was aware I was debasing myself but couldn’t stop. I longed for him. Yearned for him.

If I could just speak to him! Maybe I wouldn’t get him to change his mind, but I could get answers to questions. Like, why did he make me feel so special? Why was he so possessive of me? When there was another woman all along.

There was a horrible niggling feeling that this was my own fault. How could I have believed that a man as handsome and charismatic as Paddy would take a person like me seriously?

Quote of the day:Self love

“When you love people, you are curious about who they are, what they think, and how they feel. You watch them closely, wondering about their experience and what you can do to make it more enjoyable. You feel compassion for their pain and seek to make it more bearable. You are eager to learn the unique language of their existence. You want to understand them, inspire them, heal them. What if you could look at yourself this way?”
Vironica Tugaleva -The art of talking to yourself

Love yourselves and the others!
