Letter to a special friend

Family is not defined by blood but through love

The long forgotten feeling is coming back to me like a southern bird flies back ,over the oceans, to their sunny-warmed homes. Walking down the yellow bricked road paved by the golden sun together with the sand brought from all the continents, I finally feel freedom inside my bones. Running hand in hand and laughing with you along the Caribbean Sea frees my mind from all the miserable thoughts collected all these years of sorrow and fills my heart with pleasant memories that I could never possibly forget. With all the over-delicious pastries, all the with honey made Mojitos, the natural water and the “arroz con frijoles” that I’ve shared with you these day, I’ve actually gain back love. This love, that warmes you up, breathes you and keeps you alive can only be felt by those who see the beauty in little thing, in simple things, in natural things, in everything that surrounds us. This love, that makes us laugh until we burst in tears of happiness and hold our body not to fall apart in shaking our bones, while lying on a mattress on the balcony of our in Cienfuegos situated casa compartida, is the most angelic feeling that could ever be felt by a human being.

Your love is a love that makes the world go round ❤️

Fall seven times, stand up eight ~ Japanese proverb

We already know that the things we don’t say are these which hunt us most, no matter how much time passes by, but we should also realize that everything we are afraid of will follow us with every single step we take.

Have you ever wondered why your childhood wishes don’t always ‘come true?

Have you ever wondered why you’re still so afraid of stupid things, which cannot possibly hurt you, like darkness, spiders, forest or voices?

You wished and hoped and prayed that they will all go away once you grow older. Yet even after a quarter of a century you’re still in the same situation but even more terrorized than before.

While we grow up, we realize that fears don’t disappear with the flick of the fingers, dreams don’t become true by a wish we once made on a shooting star. Nothing happens just like that, but rather because we work on it consciously or subconsciously.

We align ourselves step by step toward our already chosen path, toward the yellow brick road, on which we wished to walk since we were little petunias.

We push ourselves out of mud and blossom like beautiful colorful delicate lotus flowers.

We blow the dust away and allow us to be light.

Like a Phoenix we rise from our own ashes and are better than the last time we did it.

As we alone rise, we alone fall but don’t ever dare to lose faith in tomorrow and if you ever do please remember this beautiful and wise Japanese proverb: “Fall seven times, stand up eight”.

A long way to go

Say no instead of yes if you want to, say never instead of maybe if you feel so. Allow yourself to come to an absolute happiness by eliminating negative energy from your life, from your halo. Be good and receive good, be positive and even more positivity will surround your life. Live for today and not for tomorrow, and my dear: please stop pressing all your feelings down, stop hiding them, stop trying to wash them away. You know that they will come back and will hurt you because you didn’t allow yourself to feel free, you didn’t allow yourself to feel happiness in your soul.

You teach and preach and talk about being who you are, about loving someone for what he or she is but your self-esteem is lost somewhere in our endless universe.

You hide behind a mask every day and occasionally take it of in front of the people you feel safest with.

But why my dear? Why are you so afraid of the real world? After all you’ve been through, do you still think you can’t possible endure the truth? You read, you knew, you’ve heard from different mouths that you’re already living the truth, every second of your life, yet you still hide from your own soul.

Listen to the drops outside, enjoy this beautiful moment, these rain-drops which might disturb some people but save someone else’s life. Rain and sunshine are equally important for all of us, like love and pain, they walk beside us with every step we take.

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger and yes, it does leave marks behind, pain still feels present sometime but don’t let it take the best out of you, don’t let it conquer your halo, don’t let it possess you again.

Listen to the rain-drops and free yourself from all the bad and negativity, free yourself from tomorrow’s thoughts and live now!

Love from the bottom of your heart, love like there’s no tomorrow, love unconditional, love without wanting anything in return, love everyone and everything, love the good and the bad, love the sun and the moon among the start, love the earth like you love the sky and my dear love the sea as much as you love the mountains.

Go out and try to find yourself back to you, go out and try everything you’ve ever wanted to try, go into the wild and search for your soul, go out and love yourself first because you still have a long way to go!

The Sun

She used to compare you with the biggest and warmest star in this universe, she used to warm herself up with your hotness without even getting burned, she used to smile day and night.

Awake or asleep you hunted her thoughts like no other, bringing her goose bumps every single time she even dared to feel you closer to her soul.

You haven’t been around for a long while and she was trapped in a nightmare of mad creatures, whom craved pain on her naive soul each time they could.

After all these years, after all the stars which burned down, she can still breathe one, the biggest one, the Sun, you.

Take me as I am and let me be !

We often try to change the one we “love” and many times we don’t even notice it.
I believe that once you love somebody you don’t want them to change. You won’t need them to change anything for you, you want them to change something for their-self if they hurt.

It hurts when the people you love suffer and we always want to make their life as beautiful as we can. Just don’t forget about your happiness and inner peace, for if you’re not happy, you can not truly make anybody shine!

Many people tend to mistake and forget that in a relationship you need acceptance and toleration, for nobody is perfect and sometimes is ones imperfection that makes you love them.

Help one see the beauty of our life, if he has forgotten and his life is full of sorrow, regrets and sadness. You cannot change somebody you can only help them change, for they change their-self if they need to.

Love the man beside you as he is or let him go his way.
We are all different and is out difference that brings us together to live an exiting adventure called life.

It’s all about learning from the others and being open to new wonderful roads they may want us to discover.

Difference is not wrong, difference is a new way to live life!

We keep judging our brothers , keep teaching them about life showing them the “best” way to survive. We often do this without even looking inside us. Seeing that we don’t know each other as well as we thought we knew. 

We keep arguing about the problems that rounds us every single day, but are to coward to stand up and change something in our life. The problems won’t go away by sitting on the side and wishing that they will disappear.

We all keep dreaming and we never wake up to reality. We are passing through life not even being alive, not actually breathing and in the end we die , we die not knowing how beautiful this universe can be , not watching the sunset colors, not feeling the love that covers our heart, not hearing the birds singing and the children laughing.

Everything is in our hand, if something good happens than is because we are gorgeous and able to do magnificent things but we are also weak and we easily do mistakes. Doing mistakes is not bad, is not bad if we learn from it, sometimes we have to fall down to stand up and walk the road even better than before.

YES ! We are strong enough to change something , we are strong enough to step into this life and make it better. We have to see the problems and try to find a way to resolve them , not running but confront .

 

Like the gorgeous Winston Churchill once said

~ If you are going through hell, keep going. ~
