I’m Allowed To Be Sad

My motto in life- “This too shall pass”. I don’t exactly know who said that but I got that from somebody close to me from another life. I have been through a lot lately, I always survive it. I have to! But sometimes I just want to curl and hide in a hole and not come out for weeks. Sometimes I’m not that strong… I’m not that confident. I feel small, I feel vulnerable. I tell myself when I’m in that mood- I’m allowed to be sad. Heck yes, I am f*cking allowed to be sad, to scream my lungs out, to shed a gallon of tears. I’m allowed to stare at walls for hours and hours and not think about anything else or hear anything but the beating of my heart and the rise and fall of my chest.

Provence was one of my few favorite places in the world. Although the last time I went to Southern Europe I did not go, but it was about an hour away from where I was! One day soon, one day soon! Continue Reading


The Need To…

I’m a very unpredictable person, most of the time I do things differently just because I do not want to be everybody else…which is in a way not bad but one thing I learned is with this type of personality and lifestyle comes unpredictable consequences. Being unconventional is exciting and weird to some extent…it makes you more interesting to some people, and makes other raise some eyebrows. I learned to not care so much about what people say, because the me 20 years ago, the me 10 years ago and the me now, are quite different, I grew so much in experience and in size (unfortunately)…but lets face it, if I look back, there were things I did 20, 10 years ago that were simply stupid if I happen to meet that same situation again, I would have responded differently…
