Salvation

“But if you tame me, then we
shall need each other.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

… and you did.

Nothing is easy. And becoming friends with the talented person you are is a path full of pitfalls ^^!!! Not very cool things happen, but I’ll get over it, I’m hopelessly hopeful ^^! Some people just don’t know what they’re doing and how they’re affecting people, and they don’t really care as they don’t know them… But listen… all these little and almost insignificant rocks on the road won’t wrecked my hopes. I’ve already written it, probably several times, and I’m writing it again: when two people are meant to become friends, no matter what’s gonna rise up against them, whether it is time, distance or whatsoever, they will eventually find a way to find each other again!

We’re different, that’s true! But what’s that?! An excuse?! We are special and different, and most of all… just the same too! We are humans before anything else in this world! Many people tend to think they are defined by what they’re doing for a living, but that’s just a characteristic of a person! People are defined by who they are inside, by their values, by their soul!

And YOU mate, you have a beautiful and kind soul, one of the most gentle I’ve ever known! If I could give you only one thing in life, I would give you the ability to see yourself through my eyes, only then would you realise how special you are to me. All around you there are people who are hurting, people who need your love, people who need your encouragement. So let God use your gifts and talents to bless them… Because they blessed me first 🙂 You might not know it at all, but you have been one of the first & only persons, who helped me write again and be more confident about my writing. I’ve come quite a long way since I met you… I got to know myself a bit better when it comes to what I needed to do to be happy… and writing is one of those things ;)! So I simply want to say THANK YOU for being kind of a salvation to me…

“I’m small, I’m young – and I’m so different. You’ve always respected that difference, and you’ve always trusted it. Trust me now. There’s a reason I am the way I am, and there’s a reason I was lead to you. There’s always a reason.”
Dean Koontz, Relentless

I don’t want anything I said or wrote to seem like a farewell, because nothing’s a farewell. Farewell is when there’s nothing else anymore, farewell is when even hope is gone! And you can trust me on that matter because, as Waterschoot once wrote, “I will never give up, just push harder because the thought of quitting is far worse than the temporary pain I’m feeling now”. I will always keep you with me, somewhere here, safe in my heart, you’ll be always on my mind, and this until we meet again… and we will (HOPE is my only motto! :p).

“Not to give up under any circumstances should be the motto of our life: we shall try again and again, and we are bound to succeed. There will be obstacles, but we have to defy them. So do not give up, do not give up! Continue, continue! The goal is ahead of you. If you do not give up, you are bound to reach your destined goal.”
Sri Chinmoy, The Jewels of Happiness: Inspiration and Wisdom to Guide Your Life-Journey

PS: Don’t let anyone change your soul, man, stay who you are, stay true to yourself & keep up. Wishing you all the very best this world has to offer. Will look to you… ALWAYS. X

“I won’t give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I’m giving you all my love
I’m still looking up, still looking up.”

I won’t give up – Jason MRAZ

Saying goodbye…

♪ Looking through your eyes

I could never find a safer place

Even if I tried…

Don’t ever let me go

I know I’m ok

Wrapped in your arms…. I’m home ♪

Wrapped in your arms – Firelight 

sadness_by_mithertiths-d4r339v

Don’t let me go… Keep me in your arms…

To all the fantastic people I’ve met over here in England; to you guys who are my friends and who it is so hard to say goodbye to, to all of you… Caroline, Melody, Jamie, Becky, Jenna, Laura, and the lovely twins Stela & Julia, to each of you… I’ve never thought it was going to be that hard, but leaving you here literally is a HEARTBREAK!!!

Not a long ago, a friend reminded me that… “Goodbyes are not forever. Goodbyes are not the end. They simply mean I’ll miss you until we meet again!” Even if it doesn’t seem like it right now, even if it’s still hard to believe, even if everything looks like it is all over… when you truly think about it, it’s just… true! And as hard as it is for me right now, as painful as all these goodbyes are (whether they were said in London this last weekend or this week on Hayling), I would like to leave England with this state of mind, I want to leave with HOPE! Cassandra Clare once wrote “Every meeting led to a parting, and so it would, as long as life was mortal. In every meeting there was some of the sorrow of parting, but in everything parting there was some of the joy of meeting as well.” I precisely want to leave with THIS feeling, with this pain due to the separation (because it is actually unavoidable!) mixed with the joy of seeing all these people I love again! Thus, you’ll understand I’d rather say “I SEE YOU SOON” instead of “GOODBYE” (which is, let’s say it, so much more depressing)!!!

This post is probably the most difficult I have had to write… Not because of a lack of inspiration or anything, but simply because it moves me a lot… One sometimes says that “tears are words the heart can’t say”, “a grief that can’t be spoken”. But as you can’t see me, I have to do my best to express what’s within my tears right now…

Kiera Cass once wrote “You’ve changed me forever. And I’ll never forget you.” I also want to add: ‘I will always be thankful for everything you’ve brought me and I know you will keep on bringing”. You arrived into my life and left your footprints on my heart and I know that having you in my life totally changed me… you changed me for good, even maybe for the better ❤

I know I will all see you again, wherever it may be… England, France, Europe, or another continent! But it’s not really where we’ll meet again that matters… What’s truly important is to realise that wherever we are from each other, wherever we go, wherever we’ll be… as far as I’m concerned, you’ll always be in my heart, you’ll live in my heart forever! And you know what one says?! “People who live in your heart are living with you!” You see? Now that you’re in my heart, you’ll be with me forever and we’ll never be apart… So don’t be afraid because I’m leaving… because I love you always, I love you with my heart!

Now I just hope that I’ll be in your hearts as well as you’re in mine… because as Pittacus Lore once wrote “Every beat of my heart belongs to you, whether you ask for it or not.” So don’t give up on me… because I WON’T give up on you!

Just think about this quote of Richard Bach…

“Can miles truly separate you from friends…. If you want to be with someone you love, aren’t you already there? “

So to all of you, my lovely ones, Caroline, Melody, Jamie, Becky, Jenna, Laura, and Stela & Julia, I am not saying GOODBYE… I’m saying I SEE YOU VERY SOON :* Xxx

For this special post, I will change my “motto” a bit and write…

Keep holding on to who you love & enjoy the ride of life 😉 ‘Cause Look! You never know who you’re going to find on your way… 😉

You and I will meet again

When we’re least expecting it

One day in some far off place

I will recognize your face

I won’t say goodbye my friend

For you and I will meet again

~Tom Petty

MUCH LOVE TO ALL OF MY ENGLISH FRIENDS ❤ ❤ ❤ and to all of you, my sweet readers!

xoxo

From across the sea… 

Is this what it feels like to really cry? I shall guess so… But as painful as these tears may be, there’s nonetheless & somehow good news… These tears are the proofs that you’re in my heart ❤

Believe me… You are GREAT!

Believe it! It’s true!

Do you know Validation?

Well, now you do! 😉

I wanted to share this video with you today, simply because it will show you the way I am now, what kind of person I’ve become, and more important, who I want to be until the end of my life!

I want to be like that guy, who tells people how amazing they are, who gives them their smile back,… That’s how I am and how I want to live my life! There’s absolutely no point in being grumpy and mean to people; it’s not gonna bring you anything (it’s actually the opposite; being rude will destroy you.. you will not only destroy the people you’re boorish with, but you will also destroy yourself; so be careful, be kind, smile and bring joy around yourself! ;))

The first time I saw this video, I was in middle school. It was introduced by my English teacher of the time. She has been (and still is) a very important person to me. She’s one of those few people, who helped me become the person I am today! So I haven’t got this mentality only thanks to the video (even if it played its role 😉 !), but also thanks to people like her. Furthermore, I truly believe that my time in England, this time spent with all these VERY nice and lovely people, is definitely confirming the way I am & want to be.

Whatever you’ve been through, whoever you are (you may be the richest and most famous person on the planet, or the tramp living in this underground), whatever you’ve done (good or bad), it’s never too late to change (or remain) and be this real & warming sunshine for people. That’s how you’ll find happiness, that’s how you’ll feel how GREAT and AMAZING you are! Because YOU are great and amazing… Everyone is! I’m totally convinced that everybody has something to bring to others! You just have to believe in it! Here’s what Charles Dickens once wrote:

“The sun,–the bright sun, that brings back, not light alone, but new life, and hope, and freshness to man–burst upon the crowded city in clear and radiant glory. Through costly-coloured glass and paper-mended window, through cathedral dome and rotten crevice, it shed its equal ray.”  Charles Dickens, Oliver Twist

Well… I want to be that “bright sun” Dickens was talking about, I want to bring hope back when it is thought to be gone for good, I want, by a simple smile, be the fresh start for the one who needs it… In a word, I want to be this little light in people’s life 🌟

And now… what do you say, guys? Do you choose to be a sunshine or do you choose to stay in the darkness? Do you choose happiness or do you choose despair? It’s up to you, but… I think this is quite an easy decision to make, don’t you think? 😉

With this, don’t forget to…

Keep holding on to what you love & enjoy the ride of life 😉

xoxo

PS: Speaking of being a little LIGHT, don’t forget that it is Earth Day today… so take care of our beautiful planet (you’ll take care of everything living on it as well ;)!) ☀

Press minute #5: Take 5…

badge_smile_

Hey you, my lovely ones! I hope everybody’s well 🙂

I’m just writing this little ‘press minute’ to tell you to take five minutes (or even only 5 seconds are enough) of your time to have a look at the City Of Hope and create your own badge so as to become a Citizen of Hope. This is very simple; you just have to go on their website and write down one thing that gives you hope, and then it’s done… your badge’s ready!

I created mine a few days ago and, as you can see it, SMILE is what gives me hope 😀 So now it’s your turn… What gives you hope?

“We are a city powered by hope. Not just by ours, but by yours too. Hope doesn’t just fuel the dream of curing diseases that affect millions of people worldwide; it turns those dreams into reality. At City of Hope, every discovery, treatment and cure we make is powered by hope.

So, what gives you hope? Tell us by writing your word on the badge below. Let your hope be the spark that inspires others to join us in our fight against cancer, diabetes and HIV/AIDS.”

I really like the concept and consequently wanted to share it with you 😉 !

So don’t be selfish and TAKE 5 to bring hope to those who need some (who knows?! it may include near relations and perhaps even yourself )

With this,

Keep holding on to what you love & “LET YOUR HOPE BE THE SPARK THAT INSPIRES OTHERS” 😉

xoxo
