Thursday, September 25, 2014
Two last days and actually last weeks were very tough. Work, responsibilities, difficult relationships, heavy aggressive people and lots of negativity around. As always it all came at the same moment without any capable support from friends and family (to be honest I try to avoid overcomplicate my friends' life since their life sometimes not easier than mine). My head was so stiff, that I couldn't even relax and thing of something else apart from problems. So I have decided to observe some positivity in google.
The last but not the least bit of the article I found:
5. Appreciate the little things.
“Nobody can be uncheered with a balloon.”
Daily happiness is to a large part about appreciating the small things.
If you just allow yourself to be happy when accomplishing a big goal or when you have some great luck then you are making life harder than it needs to be.
Instead, focus on appreciating things that you may take for granted.
Take 2 minutes and find things in your life you can appreciate right now. If you want some ideas, here are a few of the simple things that I like to appreciate:
- My food.
- The weather.
- My health.
- Friends and family.
- This website and the opportunity to write about what I want.
- You, the reader.
- Myself and the fine things about me.
The funny thing is that if you just start appreciating something you can very quickly start jumping around with your attention and appreciate just about anything around you.
You may start with the food you are eating right now. Then move your attention to the phone and appreciate that you can contact anyone – and be contacted by anyone – you’d like.
You might then move your attention outside, through the window and see the wonderful sunshine, then kids having fun with a football and then the tree by the road turning into wonderful autumn colors. And so on.
It might not sound like much. But this simple 2 minute exercise can help you to uncover a lot of the happiness that is already in your daily life.
And here we come...
My food - yes happy.
Weather - well not really but what can we do.
Friends and family - yes, nice time to time, mostly great but not always next to you as we all travel so much.
Myself and the fine things about me.... - amm hmm. I wouldn't say that I have problems with self esteem. But I can't say that I can be proud of myself for being helpful or supportive when its needed. I can not be 100% proud of me being honest, respectful enough and well-wishing. Usually I have (maybe you too) those moments wham I get happy and positive, give away so much love and that I get annoyed with doing too much and stop it all, expecting the same love back which not always come back. What I experienced that others are just not doing anything and not expecting anything good back... It could be an illusion but there are not many kind and welcoming people out there on the streets...
Therefore I have taken a solution and accepted a daily challenge: to do at least one good thing to someone... it can be a stranger or a best friend. Don't consider it to be vainly but I just want to start being proud of myself for not think solely of my own benefit but spread positivity everyday! It may sound very silly and desperate but there must be the way out of egoism and self-concentration. So many societies live hating each other for being hated by each other. Here is my remedy, come join me for a positive mind thinking challenge! :)

Talking a bit more personal today, just want to share with You and the The Corner OME, what does mean memories to me and just think what drags you back to that particular moment.
Even scary, how little sense can make you travel in the past or bring the memories of some moment when this smell was especially used!
This sunday morning a smell on the street made me suddenly feel to be in Italy having my ordinary, at that time, breakfast with a friend.
Recently I have bought coffee seeds for my breakfasts, normally I never drink coffee at home but there was the only one moment... When I used to live in Florence and I have met with one very lovely person, who later became very special to me and for whom I bough this coffee so I could welcome him with his preferred drink. Meanwhile he was away I used to sip this drink every morning before going to work. Now 3 years later, when I wake up in my Notting Hill flat and go straight to the kitchen and feel that unusual smell of coffee which immediately brings me back to this beautiful period of my life that reminds me summer, happiness and that magical feeling of being in love.
There was a time when I used to live in Milan meanwhile did a summer course, and used walk to school in the early mornings, when sun was still raising and you could feel this fresh and chill air. Now every time I walk though early morning streets and feel this fresh but warm wind I immediately have an impression going to this school. The funny thing that I don't even remember what in particular course taught me, but this fresh air will stay forever with me!
This list can easily go on and on!
The music, that particular song that you always used to listen on vocations, that use to play in every cafe and every passing by car. One time I on purpose listened to the same set of songs while chilling out by pool... and yes, it worked, whenever I listen to this set of songs it makes me feel being on this sun bed next to this very pool.
And what about places? Your favourite hang out place where you always used to go with your friends or that restaurant, where you always used to go with you boyfriend and so people, food, smell ambience everything associates with him.
What's more interesting that those resources are even stronger than any picture been taken during this time.
