Happy You-Year! :)

Another year is coming to an end with all its good and bad days (who’s counting them?) and - bottom-line- I would like to dedicate them all to the glorious self: self-love, self-respect, self-acceptance, self-forgiveness and self-worth. I’ve come to the conclusion that they can make you figure it all out. Coming to terms with yourself, not trying to please anybody, allowing the others to take you as you are or leave you for good, following your own heart and mind… that’s how you can find your inner balance. Live life your own way and, if you are happy, you can share that happiness with the people you love. If you are not happy, there’s nothing you can do about it.
However, I won't forget to count my blessings as well: if they made my 2012 into a movie, there would definitely be 2 (damn ;)) ) hours of incredible scenes, heartfelt emotions, selfless feelings and breathless memorable quotes. So, here I am, not only pleased, but also really thankful.
As for my New Year resolution, it will be to continue to choose ...doing the right thing all next year even if/ when it seems to hurt ‘cause making the wrong choices would be far worse. I need this world and the future to become better places and they will be better only if each of us does what’s right.


Round-the-clock Affection

I love life
between black and white,
its million gray shades,
the polychromatic easel of the street
in the morning.
I am constantly falling in love
with our truth
Standing between us like a mirror
Where we can look together
Without being blinded by memories.
White bandages
Lay abandoned by both on the soft carpet;
My wounds have closed yours
in time
and their scars hurt only at night.
I find myself daydreaming,
while rehearsing the old lines;
You always surprise me with new gestures-
I love life,
its loneliness which leads me to you,
and what it becomes in front of the mirror
on the soft, gray carpet ...


Christmassy :)

Christmas is almost here and all I can say is:” It’s such a small world and people share more than they think they do!!!”…
Christmas is about taking time to appreciate the simplicity of life, its blessings and even its trials. It’s the time when we realize how much we love our dearest ones - family and friends - and how much love we still have inside for the others. On Christmas, it seems right to let our hearts open for a while without any risks or fears...and feel happy.
This year, I’m not wishing for material presents. I have noticed that what can be bought is hardly essential. On the contrary, what truly matters are the priceless little things which are hidden inside our own hearts, sometimes abandoned, sometimes ignored, sometimes underestimated…This year, I would like all of us to fully acknowledge that living with kindness, generosity and gratitude is a win - win attitude… that … happiness is never selfish and it can never be achieved alone.
This year, I wish all of us … forgiveness - which will give us light in return, sweet tenderness - which will bring us enough peace and warmth to surrender our worries, humility - which will help us to see the miracles inside those around us, hope - which will keep our eyes open and our smiles real, gratitude and patience- which will make the fulfillment of our dreams worthwhile and enough love to feed our souls with life…
This Christmas, let’s take time to believe, to hold the hands of the ones we love, let’s make room for the birth of Jesus in our hearts, let’s listen to children’s carol singing, let’s enjoy the smell of the fir-tree and the taste of our favourite foods … Let’s smile more often, love with all our hearts and remember to pray…and be thankful. >:D<
