The best is yet to come !!!

So, here we are, at the end of another year, which probably brought each and every one of us, something new, something different, something that changed us and our lives.

And now, that we are about to enter the new year, many of us are thinking about making resolutions, changes… that will make us or our lives better.

And so, I have a few quotes I would like to share …quotes that, at one point in my life, made my day brighter and happiner… quotes that inspired me to dream bigger, and through my dreams, to succeed.

So I hope it will have the same effect on you too 🙂

“Whatever you are, be a good one.”

“One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple.”

” The end, is not THE END. Dream bigger.”

“Trust me, when I woke up today I had no plans to be awesome. But shit happens.”

“Live simple. Dream big.”

“Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seen, there is always something you can do and succeed at. It matters that you don’t just give up.”

” Either I will find a way or I will make one.”

I wish you a Happy New Year and remember to be your own kind of beautiful 🙂

Christmas spirit :)

Well, well, well… it’s december already and we all know what that means 🙂

I believe every single one of us awaits for this time, not to only relax, but to take some time off and  spend it with families, friends and people dear to us.

Shopping fever kicks in, and the smell of cinammon is everywhere I go. And the lights …oh the lights in the city are absolutely amazing. They really do give a certain feeling of Christmas. Not only that, but even people tend to be more kind and happy, and giving, and the difference is not only seen, but also felt. Have you ever noticed that usually people tend to have a grumpy face, but around the holidays, you see more and more smiling and enjoying themselves? So I wonder….why is that? Why this big change? Does this period of the year bring a certain SOMETHING? Well, I believe so 🙂

My favorite thing about Christmas is making the Christmas tree, and decorate the house. I think I drove my husband crazy already with all my Christmas cheer ( I have been singing carols since august 😀 ). But what can I do? LOL

It’s that special thing I really love.

I have been asking people lately why do they enjoy or can’t wait for Christmas to come.

Some people said that they wait for Christmas because they celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, and some others because they simply enjoy this time of the year, and everything that comes with it.  And we all have different reasons why we celebrate or choose not to celebrate it, but the most important thing is not to accept the other person’s opinion, but to respect it 🙂

So let’s show some Christmas spirit and be more kind to each other. And more loving, and more caring, because you never know, but you might work a miracle in one’s life, and what better perioad to do it than this?

And in the same time, let’s not be kind and caring and loving just in december. Let’s do it all year round. It might be a challenge, for sure, but it is totally worth it 🙂

Good luck spreading the cheer 😉

Pregnancy… what to expect

So, after a loong time, I got some me time, and so I’ve decided to write about my experience…about what it’s like to be pregnant.

If you ask people about pregnancy, they would probably say that it is wonderful to be pregnant, and it actually is 🙂

Just thinking that another human is growing inside you, and is part of you…it is thrilling, and I find the whole process amazing. And miraculous 🙂

But pregnancy is much more than this… it’s a maturing process. It’s a step that we all take, but as much as we prepare ourselves , we aren’t really prepared for it.  You can read all the books in the world about it, and still, many things will take you by surprise.

For example, you will try to figure out when the baby kicked for the first time, because all you felt were butterflies in the stomach. Or why are you gaining a lot of weight if your diet is a healthy one. Or how long should you exercise every day? When should you start buying thing for the baby? What hospital should you choose to give birth in ? And all this questions sometimes can confuse you.

Talking to a lot of pregnant women, and new moms, I got to realize that indeed, pregnancy is soo different from one person to another. I for example, really enjoyed it so far, because I didn’t have morning sicknesses, or other manifestations, therefore I could continue work and my everyday life, just as before.

But others on the other hand, couldn’t  escape all the simptoms. And that makes it hard. As much as you want to enjoy, you can’t really because you feel sick all the time, and haven’t got a lot of energy left.

…. Nobody said that is easy, but it is definitely one of the best experiences one can have in life. It represents love, happiness and future. And we all look forward to the future, don’t we?

It brings feelings in you, you never thought of, and transforms you into someone else… I would say in a better version of yourself.

These days, because it’s december, and is cold, I always ask my husband if he is warm enough when he goes outside, and his reply was many times ” Gosh, you sound like a mom” :)) Well, that’s because I am one 😀

Or, for example I discovered that I can be very protective sometimes ( it comes with the ” job” ). :))

And who know what will I discover about myself tomorrow 😀

But I believe that the most important thing is to have people around you that support you and help you. Because the truth is that you need all the help and support you can get.

…..And partners, be there for your wives and girlfriends. They are having a difficult time, dealing with all the changes and hormons ( oh, God, the hormons :)) ), and it helps to tell them how beautiful they are ( even though they gained 20 kg), and make them feel appreciated.
