In our busy life, these things seem obvious. Dews only slipp away, flower scents and colours fade away, trees seem to block the sun and grass you use for shortcuts. Of course, it`s our norm, we have to go places and often we are late. However, I know you have those five minutes to notice something pretty or something you find remarkable. That can be actions not only sights. That can be words or scents or sight of innovation. Notice, smile, create! It is Your day!
I really like to visit parks in summer, especially where you can find all kinds of beautiful roses. That is my inspiration for this post (and it is also a weekly photo challenge for Ooh Shiny)! There is a park in Oslo called Vigeland Sculpture Park where you can find beautiful roses. In Lithuania you can find a garden besides Palanga Amber Museum, where I took these photos. Let me know of the beautiful parks full of different roses that I should visit one day! 🙂
” Be proud of who you are, and not ashamed of how someone else sees you.”
Do you recognise yourself walking down the street,
All alone, with bright new set of heels.
People start to look at you, up and down, their eyes roll through,
And suddenly all you can think is,
What the hell is wrong with you?
“Don`t they like my hair, or my shoes are too high?
Do my pants look dirty or my shirt is too bright?”
All these questions run through your head, you almost brake a sweat.
And you swear to yourself, to never wear this set again.
You have to wear simple t-shirt and jeans, because it is better to disappear in the crowd,
Than feel so green.
But Honey, let me tell you. This is quite wrong.
They look at you because you are fabulous
And would like to remember that look you own.
Others opinion is really not in your interest,
So we shouldn’t be afraid whether is bad or good.
Everyone has the right to have their opinion about things,
As well as you do, as he, she or I do.
The streets are your stage, embrace your uniqueness today!
You know, when I first saw this two-set in the store a few years ago, I liked it immediately, since I assumed it looked cute, different, with a hint of vintage feel. But when I got it, one random thought hit me – it looked so similar to old kind table cloth. I simply couldn’t get that thought out of my head and I literally convinced myself that everyone would laugh and point at me if I wore this piece of clothing. Such a silly thought when I think about it now. I was imprisoned into my own made beliefs and I couldn’t wear this item, even though I really liked it.
It took me more than two years to change my mind set completely. Accidentally, I found this two-set in my closet this summer, all wrapped in the back. I put it in the front of my closet and proudly wore it with a big smile. This proves that even our own thoughts and opinions change! Make sure to wear clothes you like and be confident about it! 🙂
Mirrors and shadows, sceneries and memories, love and thoughts.
One moment we make them, another moment we get them.
Life is unpredictable, unexpected, hard and beautiful.
With our thoughts we make our world,
As Buddha meant with happy applause.
If you are not controlled by your made beliefs,
Then you can feel completely free and enjoy yourself being happy.
We often talk in general, about groups of people,
Without looking deeper, into their achievements,
Individual souls and sweetness.
We make these theories that serve to our beliefs.
But they are wrong, and push people into making wrong decisions.
Because we start acting according to them.
So by starting to see everyone as individuals,
We will make a huge step forward. To you, to him, to her, to us.
The scenery you see here, and memory I feel,
Are mix of all these things, combined with gorgeous dreams.
You have to make your own decisions and live Your life.
No comparisons to others, embracing yourself is the key.
And you have probably heard this before,
But Love does wonders to your whole body and soul.
My inspiration for the day is this book I read recently called “The Man Who Wanted To Be Happy” by Laurent Gounelle. I read the book translated into Lithuanian language. It inspired me to think and look deeper into reactions of things and how we perceive people and different situations. Positive thoughts and good attitude do not always come easy. Sometimes we have to look from aside and think deeper to realise.
