A piece in my puzzle

Published January 26, 2014 by Dreamreflector

In my previous post I said I might be doing a post about my personal dream come true, my boyfriend. We’ve been together for eight months, and though I was happy before him, I am definitely even more happy right now. I know eight months is not a lot in relationships, and am realistic about our love, but I still feel like celebrating a bit. And to be honest, even though I love to take and post my photography, and you guys seem to enjoy looking at them (for which I’m very grateful for) this blog was originally started for me to nurture my dreamscapes and as my early readers would know, having this relationship is a major dream come true for me. So, on with a quick revisit to the roots of this blog C:

Before I met my boyfriend, I had spent hours and hours thinking about what it would be like to have someone like that. I dreamed about candle lit dinners, kissing under the fireworks, sitting close to each other at the cafeteria, watching the sunset with him gently smoothing my hair, having long, deep conversations about things that matter, and long, deep kisses after the conversations. Boy, I could fill a book with those.

Looking back, it’s fair to say that my prince charming had a lot to live up to. Now, as I have found someone to be that for me, (and someone who wants me to be the princess for him), I have found that not everything will be like I dreamed it would. Some things are better than I imagined; I never thought I’d be able to be so completely comfortable around someone who I’m not related to. I had imagined, that I could never completely let down my guard with a man. Of course I dreamed that we would be close, but I was expecting to constantly having to check that I’m putting the best foot forward, to keep the filter between my mind and mouth, to make sure not to say or do something that might make him freak out or stop loving me. I feel more at ease with him, than I have felt with any other guy. And really, that’s one of the reasons why I love him. Of course, my dreams are not being met the whole time. We both make mistakes. There really is no way for two imperfect people to be perfect together. But that’s okay; perfection’s really only a reflection of the godly world we all spend our lives reaching for.

Typing these scattered words, I feel there’s so much more to say, so much more emotion to convey, but I have no way to let it all out. To me that shows that what we’ve got is pretty close to perfection after all. This life is but a never ending quest to find the pieces to one’s own personal puzzle, and I am one piece closer to finishing mine.

Here are a few pictures of us ^^

LOVE

Cheer up C:

Published April 12, 2012 by Dreamreflector

I felt like I needed some cheering up after the restless night, and looked through some of my favourite artworks (mostly photographs since I am a photographer myself). They truly are beautiful. Many of them have to do with my dreams which, as many of you might already know by now, are plentiful. So I simply could not resist some of those beautiful photos with you today.

Note: These are not my works and I do not own the rights to them, I just hope to show them to you.

The first artist I want to showcase is a magnificent Ukrainian artist called Alexander Khomenko. He really has incredible talent, and I just love the tenderness in his photographs. He is able to capture emotion in a way that Imo cannot be matched by any one else. Further more many of the scenes he’s created are something I’ve always dreamed about. Here are a few of his works, more can be found on his website at http://skhomenko.com/

Now who wouldn’t want to have something like that?! I know I would ^^

And a beautiful evening scene <3

Do I even have to say anything?! I think not. Any one with a heart will know what I’m thinking…

And an other artist I want to feature, whose works always cheer me up. They’re not exactly daydreamy, but yea, I love them. Introducing the Two guys and a guy strips, drawn by Rickard Johansson. They tell the story of a three people a woman named Guy a man named Wayne and a man named Frank. These are just so funny. Here are a few, more can be found on the website http://www.twogag.com/

010 – Rejection

040 – Breakdown

Hope you enjoyed these! I know I did <:

Don’t settle for less than you deserve!

I got really inspired by the comment Kunai27 leaved on my previous post, so I decided to take my stand on the subject in this post, so it would give encouragement to more people C:

Kunai27 wrote: “I wouldn’t say you have strange preferences, believe me I try to hold myself to some standards too, I try to be a great guy, but the women I’ve been with have never made me feel “attractive,” I’ve only been told that, and as much as I try to be easy on the standards I have for a relationship I do think I have low ones, even my last relationship I knew she had a history with recreational drugs, but all I knew was she had smoked pot, it always makes me uneasy but I figured at least pot is organic, then one night she just abandons me in a bar to go do cocaine. Didn’t do well for my self-esteem either knowing she was only using me as a sex object, but I read what you write and it reminds me to stay hopeful, it reminds me that yeah maybe I too should stand up for myself and have “strange preferences” maybe then I’d have a quality relationship that lasts and is based on something truly wonderful, I say stay strange, stay you…”

Kunai27 It’s time to decide that you deserve better than the likes of the woman you described!

The most common mistake we do, is settling for something less than we deserve. We all do it, myself included. We fear we’ll never get what we need anyway, or just think that a mediocre relationship is better than no relationship at all. But see, I have decided that I am not going to settle for mediocre, because that will never make me happy. There are times when it feels hard to choose being alone over mediocre dates with mediocre men, but why waste your time on something you know is not the right thing for you, is not going to last, and most importantly deep down isn’t what you want at all.

Of course some might argue that I’ll get nothing if I just sit here and daydream about perfection. And you’re absolutely right. But here’s the key: You have to know what will satisfy you, and then go get it. And the pivotal point here is, that when you have visualised exactly what you want, you will know exactly when a person is not going to satisfy you and you will know exactly when to stop wasting time on people who you know won’t make you happy.

So think through what you need, where you’re willing to compromise and how greatly and then stick to it. When you notice a person does not have what you need, DO NOT SETTLE for them! We all deserve more than mediocre, and we’ll all get more, if we’re just determened enough! I’ve had some really rough times in my humble lifetime, and they’re not entirely behind me either to be honest, but that hasn’t stopped me from making the desicion that I deserve to be happy.

A dream quote for today: “The trouble with not having a goal is that you can spend your life running up and down the field and never score. ” :D

Remember, You too deserve to be happy! ^^

And they walked off into the sunset…

People who have read this blog before may know, that one of my biggest dreams is to find a soul mate. Well actually, to be honest, I don’t really believe in soul mates. But rather, I believe that there are several people who could be soul mates, and it’s just a matter of finding one of those. But any way, today, right now actually, one of my daydreams from the love sector came to my mind. The dream about walking off into the sunset with some one special C:

I have seen countless sunsets, and I really think they are one of the most beautiful, yet simply romantic things there are. And to know, that they are purely the work of nature! Amazing. Sunsets are so dreamy. I dream of walking hand in hand on a beach at sunset. And about sitting close to some one at the end of a pier, with our feet dangling over the edge and into the water. And of course, about kissing under an old oak tree, listening to the birds quiet down, and falling a sleep, my head on his chest.

Here are a few sunset pictures by me C:

I really really hope I won’t have to walk into the sunset alone C:

This is a beautiful song fitted to the theme, “Grab the Sunset” by Hundreds http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8pDVGuXkHwA. It’s not the most cheery of songs, in fact one might interpret it rather darkly, but I find it mysteriously intriguing.

And a dream quote for today: “Everything starts as somebody’s daydream.” <3

Gaze in to the sunset! C:

Blessings through raindrops

Published February 6, 2012 by Dreamreflector

It’s a new day in paradice, by which of course I mean my dreamworld. Although that’s not really paradice either come to think of it. The paradice is gone for us, as you may know, but luckily heavens awaiting C: But back to my daily dreaming routine then. In the previous posts, I have been talking about the delicate matters of a first kiss. If you haven’t read them you might want to check them out, they are headlined “Dream beautiful, dream extreme” and “May the kiss be bliss”.

Today I have been thinking about the possibility of kissing in the rain. It really is a common cliche and standard stuff in romantic movies and such, and the Internet is flooded with pictures about happy smiling couples kissing away in the downpour. But really I can’t seem to get my head around the combo, I mean it’s rain! It’s cold and wet and sad. Where does the picture of romantic happiness come from? I mean rain is alright, when it’s just a light cooling drizzle at the end of a smoldering hot day in July. I get that. But what about the sping showers, or the half freezed raindrops in October that pinch your face and make your eyes water! Where’s the romance in that?

I mean I like rain. It can be beautiful, it gives nature a boost, it refreshes and revives. I don’t hate rain. I just fail to see the romantic aspect in it. And water in itself is necessery for life. I mean a normal woman is 60 prosent water! And water is habitat for many beautiful creatures like fish and coral and many birds C: And it creates the lakes that are the pride and joy of my country.

Here are a few wet photos I’ve taken, featuring water in different forms C:

A water strider in mid jump :D These guys are so amazing

My garden fountain C: It’s small but it makes such a difference.

A little fish <3

A sunset from one of our countryes many lakes. This one is about ten minutes from my house by foot. I just love it! Gives me inspiration, a place to relax and great photos.

Like the tittle says “blessing through raindrops”. I got the inspiration for this picture from this beautiful song by Laura Story

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1CSVqHcdhXQ

This really is an incredible song and very important to me <3

And here is a dream quote for today: “The best things in life are unseen, thats why we close our eyes when we kiss cry and dream.”

Step into the rain!
