Shining through

Published January 4, 2015 by Dreamreflector

Let this be the year you shine! Excel in your work or studies, start a hobby that makes you feel enlightened or be the spark of hope that your friend or family member needs. Stop being a wallflower and let yourself be seen and heard. If you were waiting for a sign, this is it! C:

Happy new year!

Shine

Spotted: A bridge I love

Published September 11, 2012 by Dreamreflector

This is the bridge I was talking about in the previous post. It is pretty small, but that’s how I like it ^^ I love the railings too, and I love how the nearby weeping willow sort of envelops it C:

Here you can see the bridge in hole… well almost :D I quite like it

The view from the bridge is green to say the least. The view from the other side is to the lake, so it has less greenery. I don’t have a photo of that side though.

The bridge was pretty crowded too. I usually try to keep people out of the photos but could not resist the opportunity to snap a photo of this couple on their afternoon jog. It really is a wonderful place to go out with a sweetheart if you have one ^^ I kept the couple pretty blurry on purpose, to respect their privacy.

A dream quote for today: “All we need to do is listen carefully to the messages and follow our dreams. It is in our dreams that we find our true identities and where our destiny awaits.”

My next post will probably feature some photos of the nearby green ^^ Such a beautiful place. I’m not sure when I’ll be able to write it though, because the internet of course does not agree with me :/

It’s official, I’m on my own!

Yes. I have now spent the first two days alone in my own home (well it’s a rented apartment but you know what I mean). I intended to write a post with more photos of my home the first day I was there, but turns out, the super high-tech 4 G portable internet modem I bought -which the sales person assured me would work like magic no matter the place- barely works in there. It took an hour for me to load a few minute long none-HD video on YouTube. So as I made myself at home on the train here, I didn’t expect the fandango to work, but wadda you know -works like a charm. Great.

So here are some photos of my home for you all C: Also, I can’t put the watermark on them anymore, because I have this new portable computer and I haven’t figured out how to do it yet. The watermarks may or may not appear later on, we’ll see. Please respect my right to these photos even though the watermark isn’t there. Thanks! ^^

Because the apartment is rented, I can’t put new nails to the walls. Luckily I found this beautiful clock that stands on it’s own. I know you saw it already in the last post, put it wasn’t a close up, and I really love that clock. The blue thing in the background is a kind of curtain. You can see it better in the shot below -accompanied by my bed and my pillows <3

Come to think of it, this picture really doesn’t do justice to the curtain either. Sorry about that :/

My new TV stand C:

And a little counter with my new bamboo fibre set. It also has a bigger bowl which is not in the picture, because I used it to make the tasty tomato, roman lettuce, cucumber, red onion, cauliflower, feta cheese salad below C:

 

I used a strip of fabric to personalize my stools with a cute bow ^^

And finally I give you this spatula. It just cheers me up so much. The white part is the actual spatula, and the red tongue, is the holder for it, which is held on the kitchen wall by a suction cup. The spatula has a tooth, which is then placed in a whole in the tongue – the spatula stands by the stove ready for some frying action! Genius.

I do have many more photos but I am trying very hard to keep this post somewhat reasonable length wise ;)

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! ^^
