Be a Friend


{...
The importance of having a good friend
Has grown past the years...
Anyone can stare at your looks, onto the outter shell
But to see your soul... very few can manage that.

To be a friend you ought to BE a friend in the full meaning of the word
What is associated with it, respect, caring and even, telling the sharp truth
When it hurts and where it hurts, not sugar coating it.

A good friend, with time and proper proof of effort
Will stand out amongst the variety of acquaintances.
And it is okay.

And just as a side note, if you need a friend
An ear to listen up,
a shoulder to lean on,
someone to count with, rely on

I will be here,
Where I always have been standing

Relationships - Role of Solitude


Good afternoon, dearest.

It is early afternoon where I live and I have been scheduling posts and my texts / reflections
in order not to neglect this project, this blog that I believe can make a difference...
I have the belief in that...

As for this topic,
One thing I have learned after the end of a relationship of two years...
On which to add that I carry no regrets nor bitterness towards this person
(I have gratitude and wish him the best,
for him to be happy despite of our path not crossing anymore)

After (and now too) six months on my own...
I have learned enough as in...

- To build self respect
- To learn to accept yourself and your time/space
is a step to build not more friendships...and that is okay...
- Because quality over quantity - proper boundaries
equal healthier relationships and interactions.

Note - It does not mean that you do not care about others
But it shows that you have apreciation for *you*

- To focus on goals, interests and hobbies
It is not that I didn't focus, but I didn't focus as much in the past.
After all , with another person besides me
I always had the tendency to focus on the other
And his interests, and so on.
It is correct only if it was balanced because in a long run
Not only you will feel stripped out of your essence
But worn out too.

From now on, the importance and role of solicitude is...

- To come home after work and not feel lonely
Instead to see it as an opportunity to rest, if I wish to
To interact with the ones I care about, if I wish to
Or to dedicate to the hobbies, if I wish to

- To focus on my goals...
As mentioned, the blog...keeping my jobs, giving my all in it
To get my tasks done in order to move forward from what restrained me
(which can be... old patterns, debts, old ideas, etc...)
My readers, that IS empowering. It is...Self Care.

After, if you wish, you can find someone else
But by then you will know, you can fend for yourself
And you will not lose your balance if you lose him/her.

Kind regards,

Life´s Journey - Introduction


Good afternoon, dearest.

Now with more available time I can dedicate my time and myself to you guys
and to goals and things of interest. I have been writing as early as age 13...
Time just flies by...
Still , I want to create the proper space for raw, real feelings.
We must never be ashamed of showing our colours, of writing out,
creating art or awareness of what happens.

This is how the idea of creating a journal called "Life´s Journey" has begun.
Here I wish to share positive outlooks and texts. Maybe even scrapbooking...
That all said...

The Journey is open.

NOTE : The title will always be something out of the texts but to identify as "Life´s Journey"
A tag will be added.


Much love and light is what I wish for you.

Sharing Music - III


Good morning, dear readers,

As promised , I am here to post another song with a good message
I was actually on my laptop and was searching...
Then I spoke to one of my great friends (because I was so indecisive)
And I thought this was a suitable one.

It is called Bird Set Free



{...
I don't wanna die, nooo
And I don't care if I sing off key
I found myself in my melodies
I sing for love
I sing for me
I shout it out
Like a bird set free
... }

Life´s Advice - When in crisis...


Good evening, my readers...
I am not sure what time it is over there...
I posted this for a particular reason...

Looking back...
The calendar points to mid february, late night when I had entered into a spiral.
I had a mild exchange of words with a good friend of mine...
Our perspectives were diferent and an exchanged phrase triggered me.
The following reactions when in crisis that I tried to consider were...
(no particular order)

- To breathe
- To reassure to myself that that moment, as many before, would pass
- To retrieve the importance from the event, not all from the person.
- To reclaim time and space for myself
- To strip away from feelings of guilt, wrong-doing or worthlessness,
in that exact moment.

It is hard to do all of them...so do take your own time, your own pace.
If you can control your breathing, for instance, first, then you can move on
To the next mentioned step. It can be baby steps!

No one is going to judge you.
I am never going to judge you
Third, I am in no position to judge you, as an multiple awareness blog admin
And mainly, as a Human being.

Another very important thing to do is to only talk with someone of your trust
Because when we are in a heated moment we can say or do things we can regret.
To reduce the risk, make sure that you are either in a calm environment
or that you are able to go to one
Or as a second option that you can reach someone who can understand you
and make you feel calm by the end of the day.

I hope I was able to help and anything, remember,
feel free to fill the contact section in case it is needed.

Much love,

World - Gift Guide


Good afternoon, lovelies!

Today is one of my days off so I decided to make a post
For people who, like me, usually have a hard time deciding
what they are going to give to their loved ones for any special occasion
(Well, to be honest this was meant to be set for Christmas
But due to the heavy amount of work
I was unable to leave it all done for that time...

Note : Sorry for some typing errors in advance.
My main language is not English... :)

For starters, I am going to leave some sidenotes
In no particular order :

*) Age group, gender and occasion
Bear in mind if the gift is for a child, teenager, adult or elderly
Anything that stimulates intelectual growth is very welcoming.
Plus consider if it is for a friend, significant other (bf / gf), relative or co-worker
Along with that there is the occasion factor...
Birthday? Christmas? Marriage?


*) Useful gifts
I personally hand gifts that can prove to be useful. Safe choices.
Tech doesn't dissapoint. Couffrets are a good choice, too.
A gift voucher/card can be good for someone who appreciates a certain store
Plus grants freedom for the one who receives to choose an item instead of sticking
to the gift you chose for him/her.

*) Some say that socks and chocolats are overrated.
In my opinion, they aren't... I mean, after some years
It isn't really about the gift itself
It is about the gesture. It is about being grateful for someone's friendship
And about being thankful and showing it to the one(s) you love.
Plus if you believe in such, about the traditions
and the occasion that is celebrated in this precise day.

*) Budget and Brainstorming
Consider how much you are willing to spend for each person
so that way you end up with no surprises in the end for your wallet.
I find that taking notes of the budget and the people I am going to gift is helpful.

I hope that I was able to help in any way
Blessings!

Life Blog - Introduction to the belated


{...
I am pretty sure that some come and go...
Watch or read this blog...
Feel free to drop by and to leave
Comments or suggestions if you prefer

I wished to create a new introduction for the belated... so here it is!

Welcome ! My name is Life. 
A dreamer by heart, always learning through out my path!
This is my blog... it all started as a coping method for myself, bringing this journey to you
The personal struggle with depression (diagnosed back in 2010) 
and former-SI (short for Self Injury, clean since 2012 aproximately)
My main motivation was (and is) to somehow touch others,
To help anyone out there in need of someone to hear you out when things get rough
My will was to be someone like that... to be THAT person.

Even if it was just for one person or even if it happened once
That would mean that my purpose would be complete and that it would all be worth it.
Imagine that... you help someone, that someone helps another, and so on, over again...
And that multiplied... by ten? Can you imagine? Hundreds?
This was the Thought. And this way Life Blog was born

This all said... 

Welcome !

Love from

To bring us
Back home

POV - Accomplishments


Good morning, dearest !
I have taken full advantage of my Sunday to schedule this...
By this time I will be working full blast mode
but my intention is for this to reach you
Right in the morning to boost your mood

Take your breakfast.
Nourish your body and mind
Set your goals for your hour, your day...
Take your time and pace.
No one has the same rythmn as you
Nor the same challenges or trials...
That is what makes us unique.
You have unique traits and qualities that make you, YOU.

Next step I wish for you to think about your accomplishments
It does not matter the timeline for it, as long as it makes you smile.

Have you moved away from your hometown or a new home?
You are embracing changes.

Have you made it through the day when you know how hard it is?
You are already suceeding

I need you to embrace all that:

You are capable of...
Tiny, simple, good, great, 
Major accomplishments!


Trick is to start from scratch until your major accomplishments...
(My example here : )
I am capable of....reaching my goals
I am capable of...adapt to new environments
I was capable of... successfully work four weeks in a row with a set twelve hours.
I was capable of... accepting what was less fortunate and work out through it.

Much love,

Sharing Music - I


{...
Since I lost track of how many songs I have shared in this blog through the years
I decided to rename this sort of posts and start from scratch.
To the recent visits and not-so-recent, this posting is meant to be uplifting and inspirational
I am going to try and share one per week
This week's choice is...

We Came As Romans - Hope



[...] We won't fall to our  knees
We are the one true hope 
So give me an answer (8)

Regards,
