Low expectations


   Today, what I wanted to talk about is the idea of having low expectations and I know that it has a negative association, like for example failure or something not good and I decided to look at things differently. and now as I think about it I completely disagree. Low or no expectations are one of the most powerful things that you can do, if you can use it to your advantage. In my life I have seen a lot of people around me be very disappointed because their life hasn't turned out as they intended it to be. I truly believe that goals, standards and expectations are very different things. I think you can set any amount of goals, as high as you want and you can work hard to achieve those goals. I think your expectation of the outcome of that work, whatever you're working towards needs to be low or none whatsoever. working hard towards your goals while having no expectations of what the outcome of that might be allows you to live your life completely without fear of failure. It allows you to really enjoy any small successes that you do have because you already weighed in your mind ' Okay, what's the other possible outcome of this? Horrible? am I okay with it? I mean fuck it yeah. why the fuck not?'

 as an example let's use - making new friends or relationships. I used to get really disappointed when my friends didn't do things that I liked or they hurt my feelings or something like that. I like to imagine that making friends and meeting people and starting new relationships is a lot like being a magpie - you know, the bird that likes shiny things. now this isn't all how magpies work but I like to imagine that they work this way, right? so you're a magpie and you're flying around, looking for some shiny things. wu, a shiny thing, so you go down there - Oh, It's just a bottle, okay, cool I'm just gonna keep flying around keep looking for shiny things. Oh, what did I find?! Kim Kardashian's engagement ring, It's a diamond, I really like it. Moral : sometimes i find crap but does that mean that I can't find a diamond, no. I'm just gonna keep on looking.





  Just treat people like 'shiny things', and after a while you are going to figure out if they're diamonds or potato-chip bags - then you're gonna decide which ones you're gonna take to your nest. You don;t need to be disappointed by people if you have no expectations of them. although just because you know someone, that doesn't mean that they can't turn around and hurt your feelings, so just knowing that that's a possibility in your mind forever is important. friends change, people change - so if you can keep your expectations on the same level all the time no matter who comes in and goes out of your life, everything is gonna be fine.
 That is why, my dear friends, we shouldn't rely on other people. Our mood can, I mean we can't control that part. But don't love somebody more than you love yourself. same goes with trust. I am going to repeat myself - But again don't make your life revolve around other person. make it all be about you.  people come and go. Don't hold on too tight on the brunch if you're unwanted. Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you, or makes you happy. Whatever comes, let it come. What stays, let it stay. What goes, let it go.

First of all, as you probably guessed from the picture above,we are going to talk about Tumblr. All the pictures that you see on my blog are from there.
I always used to prefer weheartit over Tumblr just because it was a lot more simple. But I just created a new one and I'm kinda into it.

Clearly most of my spare time I spend watching youtube, and I know most of my readers do also. On the other hand I got a lot of my friends watching videos as well and they keep asking me to recommend channels, so here you go folks: 
First of, I can't not mention one of my favorite channels: Buzzfeed. They have lot's of channels on youtube and of course their website is incredibly interesting as well. I personally prefer BuzzFeedViolet. I'm gonna tell you upfront, You are going to fall in love with all the characters immediately - My personal favorites are Gabby, Quinta, Sara, Andrew and Ashley. I was happy to discover that Allison and Gabby have their own channel called Just Between Us.

What If?

'What' and 'if' are two words as nonthreatening as words can be. But put them together, side by side, and they have the power to haunt you for the rest of your life.

What if?

What if?

What if?

   I don’t know what a love like Juliet’s feels like, a love to leave loved ones for, a love to cross oceans for, but I’d like to believe, if ever I were to feel it, that I’d have the courage to seize it.
 You know what i have been thinking a lot about lately? This is actually a thought that my friend had the other day so let's give her some credit for that one. God granted us one life. We don't know what will happen in the future. We lie to ourselves each day by creating plans for 'tomorrow', when the truth is you never know what might actually happen. It might also never even arrive. That's why it is so important to live in the moment and not to waste time. you know what? I love life. with it's ups and downs. it wouldn't be interesting without difficulties. Without them we wouldn't cherish the good things, we wouldn't value, and be grateful for what we have.
  Although, Let's get back to the main idea. god gave you only one life and one chance to accomplish what you want to accomplish. It's sad that we are still not fully able to do whatever we want. For some reason we are afraid, all of us. afraid of consequences. and here we are, living in fear. thinking without taking risks we would be happier and safer, however without those risks we will never feel fully happy. We only regret the chances we didn't take. you know how they say,you'll never know unless you actually try and put an effort in something. unfortunately we prefer playing it safe. if there's something that made you feel happy, even if it didn't end the way you intended, you shouldn't regret it. Life is a gift. Wake up every day and realize that.

A Letter To my Future Self

 


  Hello there future self, you weren't expecting to receive a letter from me, did you? or you did, considering we're the same person. I am writing to you without any particular reason. I know You won't answer any of the questions, I just thought It would be something entertaining for you to read. I'm 16 years old now. It seems like a lot to me but you probably smiled right now as you think I'm still such a child. Hey Do you remember me at all? Have you changed?  I hope you did. I bet you are a lot more confident than I am right now. Did you learn how to drive? I always wanted to drive a car. I think you are not that keen on blogging any more, are you?

   How Old are you anyway? 25? 38?
Yes, I know I shouldn't know too much about the future - kind of eliminates the fun of not knowing - but I'm going to ask some stuff anyway.

 You are the girl I see in the mirror every day. But why does it feel like I'm writing a stranger? Oh, I'm interested do you like pumpkin, or you still absolutely hate it.
 
    Are you in love? Have I met him? And Did you work things out with you-know-who in the end? I really hope so. yeah, I'm still stuck on that. Some people aren't worth our time but unfortunately we won't find that out until we spend it on them. Hopefully we don't waste too many more hours on people who don't warrant it. are you still unsure of whether you love a person or these feelings are just sympathy that will fade away really soon. For some reason I always had that logic in my mind that you can't actually fall in love until certain age, until you're mature enough or else it's just hormones that attract you to that person, (oh how much I hate that term). Well, partly true but on the other hand with age you become more down to earth and materialistic and that feeling of love starts to include many aspects that have nothing to do with it. I've realized how stupid the phrase 'life is short' is. because just think for a second is it possible to do something that is longer than your life?
   I sincerely hope that nothing I do these next two years will ever be something that you regret. I'm still trying to find myself and I hope you've found who you really are. i wonder if you still listen to the same kind of music as I do. And How's our mom doing?
     One of the biggest fears you've had is making new friends or talking to anyone other than those you've known for 3 years. Hopefully by this year you would have overcome it or are slowly starting to. Your Horoscope still says the same though, and it perfectly describes me.It says you adapt emotionally to your environment. Often painfully shy, are adept at imitating the mannerisms of other people in order to hide your own personality.  can too easily become a victim by identifying with the personality and problems of other people, because this severely restricts the development of your personality and talent.
  Imagine that you have gotten on an old-fashioned, romantic train with a specific destination in mind. As you choose a cozy seat and you settle in, the train begins to move. As it goes faster and faster the scenery changes to become more beautiful and more inviting by the moment, and along the way you see things that cause you to want something other than what you originally intended. That's okay. The point of a journey is to get to the right place, yet sometimes we don't recognize the right place until we see it.
                                          
Here, I composed a list of stuff i want you to do. p.s I know some of them are super unrealistic but it's just the first thing that came to my head.
Go to University
Try Diving 
Jump with a Parachute 
Learn How to Drive a Car
Go Abroad with A friend
Never lose my current friends 
Visit Disney Land
Travel to Rio During Samba Festival
Go To Coachella

         Most of the time,you operate on intuition. You use that keen insight of yours to ascertain many things - a person's character, the viability of an opportunity, whether to accept an invitation or not, and so on.
 However sometimes you get so caught up in listening to that first wisp of intuition that you fail to recognize, you occasionally have limits. For example when something means a lot to you personally in an overwhelming kind of way, you sometimes can't rely on intuition alone. Listen to the little voice, but back up what you hear with research. I hope those advices from my daily horoscope will help you figure it out, or at least make you think. I hope you appreciate this, future self. It's hard enough writing to the future; I can't really say 'It'll all work out' Cause I Don't know if it will.

 Well, I have faith in you and I look forward to being you in time! I'm greatly anticipating it so don't let me down!
