I read the question some time ago in a magazine and pinned it down to think about it. What would I advise and would I do it at all? Was my life exactly like I wanted it to be so far or were there major mistakes, times I regret totally?
If I’m honest it wasn’t always like I wished it would have been – I don’t know if there are really persons who could say everything was perfect at any time. But on the other hand, even if there were times I never wish back, they made me the person I am today. Don’t we have to make mistakes to discover ourselves? I think we have to as otherwise we would never be able to judge for ourselves what’s right and what’s wrong. Learning never was easy, so why should growing up be?
If it comes to every single emotional experience it was important to live it and feel it, even if it was painfully sometimes.
But what about style and fashion? In this case I would say to my 20-Year old self not to try out curly short hair, never cut it too short as you will regret it for sure. These fat heels were never nice even if people want to tell you this right now, don’t buy them! Ah, and nobody needs a fake diamond on a front tooth, it may be hip for some but you just ruin your tooth.
And what about drinks and food? Here I would have also a few recommendations. Never have too much Ouzo, believe me, you can’t stand it and will end up drinking liters of plain water as if you crossed the desert. On the other hand you are always staying away from cinnamon, this doesn’t make sense as it will take just a few more years until you will love it, so why not to give the yummy taste a try right now?
As you see, I may be able to recommend and give some hints and tips but only about kind of unimportant things in life. If it comes to the seriously important experiences, we all have to go through them on our own and I would rather regret to beware my 20-Year old self of one of them than giving her the back up that everything will be all right in the end.
The 35-Year old can assure to the 20-Year old that the next fifteen years won’t be all fun and easy going but they are worth it to move forward and stand up whenever you feel that you were knocked down by life.Good luck and cheers from Miss Faith
Why are the most interesting ones on air in the middle of the night?
Whenever I switch on my TV there’s trash and even if they call the trash documentary because its about a special topic like sextoys, germans dating women in Eastern Europe or another new fashionable building in Dubai, it all remains trash from my point of view. But what happens if I just roughly switch through the channels before I intended to go and sleep?
Yes, the real documentary starts.
Behind the scenes information about workers of the United Nations, journalists traveling through Mali to uncover what’s going on with the Tuaregs there, and so on.
Topics which are not only interesting, they can also teach us to be more open minded instead of living in our small world with our small problems.
I’m keen to learn as much as possible about the whole world, see different cultures, lifestyles and traditions but it’s hard to find it on TV.
Am I so unique or what’s the reason for this? At least travel documentaries should be something which is interesting for the majority, shouldn’t it. I can and will not believe that most persons live in such a small restricted world and are happy with what they can reach within a few hours. There’s so much to discover on earth, so why should I limit myself and just stay where I am for my entire life. Isn’t that boring?
I honestly think if more would be interested in learning this world would be a bit more open to others. As long as you don’t want to learn why people are doing something you will never be able to understand. It’s easy to judge from an outside position but stepping into depths is teaching you why traditions, cultures or habits are existent and how they influence whole countries or regions.
Stay open and faithful,
I’m happy when . . .
…whenever my husband is around me…
Not around me like a person who needs to make me laugh or as entertainment, no, it’s more the feeling of being sheltered, being around the person I love.
…when I have chocolate somewhere in my flat.
Chocolate makes happy and that’s true as I know I’m not happy if I want to have a piece and the box is empty.
…when the sun is shining.
Light, especially sunlight, is essential for me. Winter times are depressive as its dark and cold but as soon as I feel the warmth of sunlight on my skin in spring I’m happy.
…whenever I have nothing to do than relax and spend time on writing, sleeping, reading or listening to music.
There’s so much to do on normal working days that I cherish these happy moments.
…I finally bought the shoes I wanted so desperately.
Women, I know, but there are times when I see a pair of shoes and am unsure, then it seems as if they drop themselves into my view as I discover the same pair in several stores, as if they hunt me. When bought it makes me and my feet happy!
And what happens if you ask a man to finish the sentence – this is the answer from my husband:
…when I watch the final of the champions league and Real Madrid is beating Barcelona 6:0.
Enjoy and take care,
For almost the whole last month we had time together, my husband was back home here with me and we had lots of things to plan. The wedding should take place in August and we will not be able to have an actual date until all our documents are submitted in May and reviewed by the German registry office.
Nevertheless we should have a plan in place by then on how to organize things quickly as we cannot move the wedding to a later date – all docs have to be ‘not older than six months’.
Besides I was working full time this time and had no holidays in between as these vacation days are also needed in August and September. A tough time where we had small fights due to me being stressed and nervous from work but even more lovely moments until deep in the nights.
You want to spend as much time as possible together and therefore the evenings were extended up to two or sometimes even later in the night. Snuggling up in front of a movie, talking, eating, just time for us. The result is a major lack of sleep and the knowing that it won’t be easier with every goodbye. No, it’s getting worse. I thought we will get used to it to be apart and then back together but the truth is that I can’t wait for the day when we have one home where we both belong to without saying goodbye for two months.
This evening is kind of strange as I’m back to the being alone status and I don’t like it.
Skype will be started later on and no more real hugs and kisses.
I will start to write more again during the next weeks now, at least this is time filled with sense and I know my love will read it over there.
