This world is like a snowy mountain that echoes your voice. Whatever you speak, good or evil, will somehow come back to you. Therefore, if there is someone who harbors ill thoughts about you, saying similarly bad things about him, will only make matters worse. You will be locked in a vicious circle of malevolent energy. Instead for forty days and nights say and think nice things about that person. Everything will be different at the end of the forty days, because you will be different inside. The Sufi mystic & Islamic scholar Jalal ad-Din Rumi – Rule#27 from the book 40 Rules of love by Elif Shafak
There is nothing more beautiful than being cheerful. Nothing more beautiful than being positive. And nothing more beautiful than following the examples of those who have only done good in this world. We live in a day-to-day battle, but that battle can use few people who encourage us to quit fighting and start chanting. Chant our way through this short life. Surround ourselves with good memories, and good times. Life is too short to hold back, and it is too short to sit still. It is a life lived to dance, lived to joy, lived to live. What are you doing being bothered by the bothering’s of someone else? If you can’t help cheer them, then cheer yourself and maybe they will be cheered along. Don’t mistaken your life with theirs, and don’t make their misery, yours. A sad man, will eventually dance, when he sees both the people he loves and hates are dancing. So dance, even to those who are wicked, dance… and keep on dancing.
Art is in everything we see and in everything around us. All you got to do is change your sight, location or concentration. Try to see things as the best reason to have ever happen. If we see everything as it purely is, our need to long for something, strive or work for something will vanish and our need of being will no longer be required. Seeing what we need out of our day, week or life is a vision we form and is a reason to exist. Focusing on the wrong attitude to do what you long for will drain you and tire you, but learning that the reason rests behind the achievement, and understanding that there is knowledge behind achieving, is the art in seeing your destination. Live life in an artful way, in your own way, seek the giver and not the given, look at your destination & not your journey, visualize your achievements and not how they will be achieved. Life is about living and letting go, accepting that our existence matter because we have a path to walk through for a reason. Let the reason be artful, let yourself enjoy the process and be grateful all day every minute of every hour for everything. ❤️ start your day by visualizing a Heartful happy smile.
A morning that starts with a smile from a happy heart and a comfortable state of mind. Let go of everything negative, accept the challenges in your life as they will only pass you by, stop waiting for the love to come find you, learn that it exists inside of you, and start your day sharing your love with the ones around you
Have a happy morning a happy day and a happy life.
There is no one better than your own judgement upon yourself. The people surrounding you are your distraction to your self listening. Don’t let that possess you. How you feel is the answer to everything you encounter at anytime. Learn to listen to your feelings, learn the difference between your emotions, and learn to act upon them in the very right way. Some will make your hearts feel warmer, some will make your hearts feel colder, listen carefully and listen well, your hearts will lead you to where you belong. Once you understand your own callings, you will understand how to trust your intuition to follow your heart. Be familiar with your inner self, let your faith lead you to what makes you feel happier within. Have a very happy Wednesday.
We live in a world of today to learn about living the moment. Without patience, living any moment will be very difficult. Our heart & mind are both always yearning for what is there yet to come that we miss all the golden moments of the present. This yearning disables our patience & creates a deformation to live with enjoyment. For we can not control the future, we can not predict or create what is there yet to come, we for sure can lead, inspire, attract or drive to a certain future place but we can not guarantee the outcome, therefore our enjoyment is only based on what we imagine can be happiness, but we are never certain of it. As for patience; it is an act of learning to live the now, this very moment of the now, the process of our formation, the drive through the destination, the causes of the outcome, patience teaches us to enjoy the very present moment before enjoying the future that will sooner or latter be also a present moment. Patience is happiness if we only practice it the right way, if we understand that the feeling of being patient is not about having to sit and wait in despair but instead it is to sit in the moment and enjoy the very present process of our life. Be patient, learn to enjoy patience, it is a way to enjoy life. Have a blessed and wonderful Monday.
I am so grateful, for God has granted me a beautiful gift in my life: Two beautiful sisters, hopefully girlfriends for life, and moments to remember forever since we are living under the same roof.
Making the best out of what we have today is also a given gift that we can either use or throw away. So my advice is to open our eyes, open our heart and cherish the moments with those who surround us daily for they are there today & they are there around us for a reason. Leave sparkles in their life, and make our life with them memorable & worthy. Parents, Sisters, friends, brothers, colleagues or just anyone who our life is crossing theirs for a while, it’s an opportunity, a cause; let us make it worthy. #positiveliving
As much as I write about the Madonna dei Monti it will not be enough to describe the beauty of every little corner, wall, door-frame and shops.
Clicking on the below photo, you will be redirected to my photo diary of Cavour and each picture will truly tell you the story of every corner. This area is a beautiful place to hang out, shop, chill, meet beautiful Roman people, and have great food.
I couldn’t get enough of it. Love Madonna dei Monti.
Stop thinking about where you could be and what you could be doing and focus on where you are now and what you can do today.
Tomorrow is never today and today is never tomorrow; what you have now you might never have again.
So focus and count your daily blessings, take advantage of the now and do what you can do with an open heart and plan your tomorrow’s without the worries of wasting your time because dwelling on what you could be doing is a waste of your present time.
Present is a true gift. Open it, enjoy it and live every single moment of it.
Have a wonderful Friday 🙂

The meaning of life is given to us on a silver plate : After the Rain comes Sunshine and at the peak between the Storm & Shine appears a Rainbow. If you are lucky you will spot the rainbow. Rainbows are an optical illusion caused by sunlight & they appear in full circle directly opposite of the sun. We only get to see half of the circle & sometimes we get to spot a Double Rainbow. The only time you can see the full circle of the rainbow is if you were lucky enough to locate the rainbow from an airplane. Rainbows are always visible by a dark cloud behind them. The colors that appear are: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet.
Rainy & cloudy days are sign of new rainbow a sign of bright sunlight that is going to enter your life again, but we only get to see them if we are out to welcome them. A dark room will remain dark until the blinds are lifted. Enjoy your day even if it’s storming because a day is a reason enough to celebrate.
