Live Your Life!

The tragedy of life is not death but what we let die inside of us while we live.” (Norman Cousins)

The list...

... of things and feelings we need to be happy is different from one to another. 

It is my strong belief that we have to be sincere with ourselves and fight for being happy. We received so many gifts like freedom, love, hope, faith. We received also tears and pain. Because we are alive. Not always it is easy, but I like to believe that everything will be okay in the end... and if it's not okay, it's not the end yet.

Some die at 35 or 40, but are buried at 80... I read it somewhere and I find it so true.
I don't teach lessons nor give advice... I do not judge nor point the finger...

I want to scream out loud to be heard at miles, thousands of miles away, that life is about love. In all forms... 

Love the world, love the rain drops on his forehead, love her smile in the morning, love children, love our parents because they raised us the best way they could and knew, love his hand holding yours when you feel insecure, love her hugging you when you need it the most.
Love him when he is nervous, love her when she sings awfully bad, love books and words and always keep your promises, mostly the promises to yourself. Love music, love him dancing your traditional dances, love her look when saying good-bye in the morning, love your teachers, love your friends because they call every few hours to check on you when they know you are totally crushed. 
Love his way of looking at you at breakfast, love her for massaging your back when it hurts so badly, love animals because humans have so much to learn from them, love studying. Love history because we cannot understand the present without knowing the past, love sports, love chocolate, love colors, love flowers.
Love the ones who love you for who you are and not for what you can do for them, for what you can give them, for what you can help them with.
Love her for complaining that her hair does not look that well when you just love it, love him for saying that he is not addicted to smoking, just that he doesn't want to quit, love fruits and vegetables because they give us energy, love him when staying late at work, love her for being late in front of the mirror sometimes, love the sun, love Mondays, love your health because you are lucky to be so, love tulips and lily of the valley. 
Love words and be careful using them, love surprises, love today and the present, love smiles on anyone's face, love blue and orange and red and yellow, love snow, love the sea.
Love dreams, love her when she's moody, love him because his soon is so different from your soon, love people because each has a beautiful side that deserves to be appreciated, love him for drawing with his hand in the air the infinite sign, love her mascara that is not tear-proof, love his need for speed, love freedom, love life, love letters, love her for loving children and animals, love him for loving them, too.
Love him for being vulnerable, love her for being independent, love him when he cries, love her for being so feminine even in the today world when fighting for same positions, love butterflies, love walking in the park, love laying on the grass, love stars and clouds, love her for sometimes leaving some make-up on your black shirt, love him for who he is and not who you want him to be, love respect, trust and understanding, love the peace and silence of your home, home is where your love is!

Have a lovely life ahead!

Live Your Love!

Life is not white and black, not even for a moment. It has IFs and smiles and tears and then you are alive. Colors make it beautiful.
We have the power to decide. We want to live or we let our soul die, even if our body continues its existence.
The greatest gift we received is Love. Fences are easier to overpass, distance becomes shorter, life has a meaning.
We find the strength in ourselves as long as we love. Nothing is too difficult, nothing is impossible. Sometimes it takes a little bit longer, but Love is a miracle and I do believe that each of us has a Soulmate in this world. We feel when he/she comes, without any doubt.
Not always we understand everything, sometimes we do not understand anything... but we have no doubt.
This is the miracle called Love.

Lucky to love...

If only I could have the eyes to see all the beauty around me. If only I could enjoy all the miracles from day-to-day life. This evening I heard an interview with Queen Ana of Romania. She said something like... Yesterday is past, you cannot have it back... Tomorrow is uncertain, you will see... But you have today and live the moment. Not doing extreme things every day or anything alike, but live your life in present.
From all the gifts we have ever received, love is the greatest one. We make mistakes, we are not perfect, but we have the power to love above everything and anything. And to be loved million times more. Stronger as years go by! 
Those words "together for good and for worse" have a meaning that many forget after years. While they should be present in every answer, every action and reaction, every touch. It's a promise you make with your heart and soul, respect it!
We use to wait for the week to pass so weekend comes, we use to wait for the rain to end so sun shows up again, we use to wait instead of enjoying... 
Enjoy spring! Enjoy summer! Enjoy nature! Enjoy love!
