They filled the room with dreams, the future, love. She found a friend in her that made the word thankful lose all significance. And she smiled all the way home, home to the friend in her mailbox.
Have you ever thought about the people in your life? Have you ever stopped in the middle of a street and realized how blessed you are for the people in your life? Have you ever gotten shivers down your spine thinking about how you are the luckiest person in the world to have those people in your life?
Have you? No but, have you really?
Hands over keyboard. My heart skips a beat every time a finger touches a key. After 3 and a half row I have to pause and breathe. My soul is flooded with the mighty feeling you get when you're in the heart of doing what you're meant to be doing, when you have finally reached that moment; taken a leap of faith and approached what used to scare you, used to limit you. In this instance, I shed a tear and continue to write.
She takes a sip of her, nowadays, black coffee. She recently learnt to drink what previously required a fragment of a drop of milk. It is almost like the milk was just meant to be there even if its random just-being-there-ness made no significant difference, as if its mere existence in the cup made things easier, less bitter. She usually searched for factors to tone things down, in a previous life, where most segments of the daily life were set on autopilot and life is put in a much too well-paced pattern of how to behave. In the world where the story goes: when unhappy- immediately work your way towards happiness again, where people tend to forget there is a source, a reason, a meaning for being unhappy. Instead of realizing- they cover up. They add so much milk to their lives they're numbing the bitterness, yet it's still there.
She now drinks her coffee black, not because she has to face, and consequently learn to love,the bitterness, but because she can't be bothered with adding stuff to her life that really makes no difference in the long run. She wants to see things for what they really are, and she will continue to create her reality, without the drop of milk.
"Most people don't know it but the subconscious mind is about 90% of your total mind power. The conscious mind is what we use in our daily life; it's surprising that it's only 10%. You just have to remember that your subconscious mind accepts anything you submit to it whether it is positive or negative".
- Law of Attraction
Wouldn't it be so much easier if we decided to affect the subconscious part of the mind instead? If we have that part covered, the conscious part will quite delighted. Remember every day how amazing and strong you are, and when your subconscious is convinced, the conscious will only feed on happiness. You are your own center, start living life for yourself. That's what I'm gonna do. Now.
Inspiration that makes my heart fuzzy:
I am indeed fully aware of the fact that all loves are coloured with a bit of flaws (which makes it unique and consequently; perfect), but when you are more sad than happy, it's time to let go.
Golden rule: more happiness than sadness. It is as simple as that. And it goes for anything in life.
Some of us healed and approached new emotions, while some of us couldn't let go of the country far far away.
I am now sitting in a cozy little top-flor apartment looking over Ponte 25 Abril in the country with the foreign language, grateful for the friendly soul, because of her I am now celebrating 6 months in Lisbon, Portugal.
