Summer is almost ending and reflecting back on it, I would probably say this was the most challenging but the most amazing Summer ever..''The only time you should look back is to se how far have you gone.'' and this is me looking back to the main thing I once again reaffirmed. Really short and simple. It's all about the little things, those are the ones that make our lives happier. What is a big thing anyway? Buying a new house or a car, winning the lottery..? Or is it something much more simple but more meaningful? Like going for it and making best out of every day. Buying a cheap bus ticket and traveling to a new city. Connecting and working with new and amazing people. Following your passion. Spending more time alone. Eating tomatoes and tuna pate at the beach as lunch. Swimming in the clear sea and then sleeping in the warm Sun. Treating yourself with an ice cream. Waking up every morning with the Sun shining through half closed curtains, maybe next to someone you love. :) Conquering your own fears and battles. Saying yes more. Saying no more. Hosting new friends to your home. Spending time with your family and just laying down on the floor and cuddling your pets. Learning and choosing better. The smell of the marmalade fast tan lotion and pink towels. Morning walks and getting lost in music. Kissing someone who gives you the butterflies. Exploring in every way. Breathing. Trying some new things. Laughter. Growing. Good company. Setting yourself free. For some people these aren't the big things but I say- get excited about everything, every new day is a new chance to be happy and every new little thing is a tiny victory to celebrate. Count the little things, because one day you will look back and realize they were actually the big things. Life is fleeting and it's happening every day for us. We're all invited to be riders of our own apocalypse. :) Sea of love, S.


Ljeto uskoro završava i dok mislim unatrag o njemu, rekla bih da mi je bilo najizazovnije ali ujedno i najbolje ljeto ikada. ''Jedini puta kada bi trebali gledati unatrag je da vidite koliko daleko ste došli.'' i ovo sam ja kako se osvrćem unatrag na najvažniju stvar koju sam još jednom ponovno potvrdila. Vrlo kratko i jednostavno. Sve je u malim stvarima, one su one koje čine naš život sretnijima. Što je velika stvar uopće? Kupnja nove kuće ili auta, dobitak na lutriji..? Ili je nešto mnogo jednostavnije a puno značajnije? Kao učiniti najbolje od svakoga dana. Kao kupovina jeftine autobusne karte i putovanje u potpuno novi grad. Raditi s novim prekrasnim ljudima. Pratiti vlastitu strast. Provoditi više vremena sami. Jesti pomidore i paštetu od tune na plaži kao ručak. Plivanje u bistrom moru i spavanje na toplom suncu. Nagraditi se sladoledom. Buditi se svako jutro uz sunce koje sjaji kroz polu spuštene rolete, po mogućnosti pored nekoga koga volite. :) Pobjeda vlastitih strahova i borbi. Govoriti da više. Govoriti ne više. Ugostiti nove prijatelje u svoj dom. Provoditi vrijeme sa svojom obitelji i samo ležati na podu i maziti svoje ljubimce. Naučiti izabrati bolje. Miris losiona za brže tamnjenje s mirisom marmelade i ružičasti ručnici. Jutarnje šetnje i gubljenje u glazbi. Poljubiti nekoga tko vam izaziva leptiriće u stomaku. Istraživanje u svakom smislu. Disanje. Isprobavanje novih stvari. Smjeh. Rast. Dobro društvo. Osloboditi se. Za neke ljude ovo nisu velike stvari ali ja kažem- uzbudite se oko svega, svaki novi dan je nova prilika za biti sretan i svaka nova stvar je malena pobjeda koju trebamo proslaviti. Pobrojite malene stvari jer ćete se jednog dana osvrnuti nazad i shvatiti da su one zapravo bile velike stvar. Život brzo leti i događa se svaki dan za nas. Svi smo pozvani da budemo jahači vlastite apokalipse. :) More ljubavi, S.

''You have already arrived. Feel the pleasure in each step and don't worry about things you still have to face. We have nothing before us but a road to be traveled at each moment with joy'' 

- Paulo Coelho

“Yes, my mind was wandering. I wished I were there with someone who could bring peace to my heart someone with whom I could spend a little time without being afraid that i would lose him the next day. With that reassurance, the time would pass more slowly. We could be silent for a while because we'd know we had the rest of our lives together for conversation. I wouldn't have to worry about serious matters, about difficult decisions and hard words.”

“You are what you believe yourself to be”

“Don't explain. Your friends do not need it, and your enemies will not believe you”

“There is only that moment, and the incredible certainty that everything under the sun has been written by one hand only. It is the hand that evokes love, and creates a twin soul for every person in the world. Without such love, one's dreams would have no meaning.”

“If I must be faithful to someone or something, I have, first of all, have to be faithful to myself.”

“God hides the fires of hell within paradise.”

“No one owns anything. Anyone who has lost something they thought was theirs forever finally comes to realize that nothing really belongs to them. And if nothing belongs to me, then there's no point wasting my time looking after things that aren't mine.”

“It isn't expectations that carry us forward, it's our desire to go on.”

“Everything tells me that I am about to make a wrong decision, but making mistakes is just part of life. What does the world want of me? Does it want me to take no risks, to go back to where I came from because I didn't have the courage to say "yes" to life?”

“Sometimes, you get no second chance and that its best to accept the gifts the world offers you.”

“The true experience of freedom: having the most important thing in the world without owning it.”

“If pain must come, may it come quickly. Because I have a life to live, and I need to live it in the best way possible. If he has to make a choice, may he make it now. Then I will either wait for him or forget him.”

“The aim of every human being is to understand the meaning of total love.”

“It's best to live as if it were the first and last day of my life.”

“The simple things are also the most extraordinary things, and only the wise can see them.”

 “It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.”

“The boat is safer anchored at the port; but that’s not what boats are for.” 

“The secret of life, though, is to fall seven times and to get up eight times.” 

“Don't give in to your fears. If you do, you won't be able to talk to your heart.” 

“A child can teach an adult three things: to be happy for no reason, to always be busy with something, and to know how to demand with all his might that which he desires.” 

“You must understand that love never keeps a man from pursuing his destiny. If he abandons that pursuit, it's because it wasn't true love... the love that speaks the Language of the World.”

“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.” 

“Everyone has his or her own way of learning things. His way isn't the same as mine, nor mine as his. But we're both in search of our destinies, and I respect him for that.” 

“When I had nothing to lose, I had everything. When I stopped being who I am, I found myself.” 

“The closer one gets to realizing his destiny, the more that destiny becomes his true reason for being.”

“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”

“...when we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better, too.”

“There is nothing worse than the feeling that no one cares whether we exist or not, that no one is interested in what we have to say about life, and that the world can continue turning without our awkward presence.” 

“When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.” 

“Age only slows down those who never had the courage to walk at their own pace.”

“People are never satisfied. If they have a little, they want more. If they have a lot, they want still more. Once they have more, they wish they could be happy with little, but are incapable of making the slightest effort in that direction.” 

“Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second's encounter with God and with eternity.” 

“He learned the most important part of the language that all the world spoke—the language that everyone on earth was capable of understanding in their heart. It was love.” 

“She asks him to touch her, to feel her with his hands, because bodies always understand each other, even when souls do not.”

''Be Brave. Take Risks. Nothing can substitute experience.''

People are capable, at any time in their lives, of doing what they dream of.''

''If you want to see a rainbow you have to learn to see the rain.''

''If you’re brave enough to say goodbye, life will reward you with a new hello.''

“When you find your path, you must not be afraid. You need to have sufficient courage to make mistakes. Disappointment, defeat, and despair are the tools God uses to show us the way.” 

“I've never been as happy as I am now, because I followed the signs, I was patient, and I know that this is going to change everything.” 

“Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure.”
