The black eye...

                          For me it was painful, but for others just a reason of gossip... I am talking about my black eye...I never imagined that a little blow will turn my eye black. everybody thought I was punched in the face... well, to tell you the truth, I did nothing about it. No, I didn't try to tell them what happened to me...I just continued with my work and at some point I forgot about it...
                           Now I am thinking about those people that are not treated the same just because they have a different skin color, or because of some handicap, or even because they don't belong in the same social class... This is really sad. I really felt how the others stared at me and Yes it felt sad and strange, somehow I just wasn't belonging there, not the same girl. 
                       Then, I forgot about my black eye, and I started to feel normal, the staring did not bothered me anymore and people started to act normal...I guess it's the same in any other matter...
                            I don't know if this was a test for me, but I surely learned something....I learned that I should see beyond the shell...and that a bad looking fruit is delicious...or that a beautiful mushroom can be poisoning... And above all, the universe put people at test in order for them to learn from their mistakes.... For that I am grateful and from the bottom of my heart, I say a big THANK YOU to God. 
                            I didn't forgot about today's mood board...Check it out!

Hello Autumn....

                          I've been meaning to write for several days, but, after this long absence, I didn't have the courage to do it.... Today's theme is Gratitude.
                     I will start by asking you a simple question: How often do you feel grateful for the simple things that surround us? And yet how many are grateful for their lives? I guess the world would be happier if everybody would try to answer and at the same time feel grateful. 
                           I wasn't always a believer and I had this period in my life when I didn't know what is my purpose in this existence and I was beginning to be upset and angry on my life ( I must say the path in life I've chosen wasn't the one I dreamt about ). Everything was going from the bad to worse and nothing contented me anymore. 
                          One day, I don't know how, I woke up in the morning and it was so beautiful and quiet that I started to ask myself why I felt the way I felt. the answer was simple: We are the only ones that can make a Change....
                              And that being said I let you imagine how my life started to change and in time I managed to see the beauty in things and situations that until then I thought negative...I guess many people will not believe me, but all I am asking is that you try to feel grateful.
                               I should end my little story here and leave you thinking.....
