Some thoughts..

Standard

If there’s anything I’ve learned in my few years of life is not to be afraid of who I am. There are so few people that can really speak their mind nowadays, mostly because they are embarrassed and that is simply wrong. 

I was very shy as a child. I used to hide under the table when guests came over and pretend I was invisible, because I didn’t want to talk to them. I am shy now, as well, which is very often perceived by people as arrogance. I am not a people person, mainly because I enjoy being on my own, I like to lose time inside my own mind ( which, frankly, more people should do) and I find social chatting exhausting. However I do get lonely, and that is what my few friends are for. I will only make the first move if a person really interests me, otherwise I’m pretty quiet. My mother always told me that this is not a bad thing and I should embrace who I am, what I am, because if I don’t get myself, no one ever will, and I know she is never wrong. She goes as far as to be proud of having a rather ‘strange’ (as she puts it) kid.

I think it is important to take some time for yourself, too. Call it meditation, or thinking, or however you want, but being on your own, just discovering yourself can be extremely fascinating. There is so much that you don’t know about who you are, things that are so interesting to find out, that you should know. Just as you leave some time to meet your friends for a coffee, put some time aside to meet with your own thoughts. Wander around your mind, read books that change your perspective on the world, listen to music, analyze your dreams, do things that make you happy.There’s only one you in this entire universe, and if you don’t think that is spectacular, you are so wrong.

Because, if there’s one thing I learned is to appreciate my own self and accept and appreciate the diversity of people around me. Surround myself with other types of people, people that will challenge me, help me grow and people that will bring out the best in me. That is the only way to find happiness, in the friends that laugh with you and in your own infinite mind.

The Stairway

Standard

Music has so many genres and during time many bands have tried to climb the stairs of glory. Among those many have failed, while others became legends. But one can not be a fan of everything. Even though each of them has brilliantly succeeded to became of such a great name in such a crowded world, not each of them are alike. They are different, for every soul and every heart. We have Queen for romantic rock fans, Metallica for those with strong ears, Abba for the peaceful. However Led Zeppelin was always hard for me to label. Let’s face it, you have to have a gram of snobbism to listen to Led Zeppelin. Even though between the listeners exist people who actually enjoy to listen to them repeteadly, most of those I know listen to them because “they are cool” and it’s ” strange and popular ” . I know a couple of songs that I actually enjoy but they’re not exactly the band you listen to on your way to school. You have to be in a certain mood to be able to go through their songs. I remember discovering Stairway to Heaven. Some snobbish classmate thought it was awesome and only for those with “great taste in music”. So, I immediately put it on my phone to have it there like a cool kid. A whole year I skipped it and when I finally found the mood to listen to it I realized it would be useful to get me asleep on a long way. I don’t want to be mean but I hate listening to someone because it gives others a certain impression. They’re just not my cup of tea. I guess I’m more of a romantic rock fan…

New Beginnings

Standard

Hello, dear person who is reading this. What i want all of you to know is that it was not my idea to do this blog. No way. My bestfriend, great girl and blogger started this. She inspired me to do this too, so here we go. My blog will perhaps have no specific topic. It’s just me, writing what I feel, thoughts on a blank desktop. It may sound a bit strange but I’ve never been one to express what i feel. Every person I truly trust knows it’s kind of hard to gain my friendship. I am afraid of new experiences, I may even be a little weird, as my mom said: “Don’t worry, kids can’t be stranger than you”. But, don’t worry I’m an optimistic and romantic at heart, so my posts won’t be emotional. At least not that much. Cheers, beautiful world.
