Mood: Why do I like rainy days so much? A love letter to grey skies

Few hours ago I was walking from one room to another and a feeling washed over me. A feeling of content, calm and inner peace. And a thought flashed through my mind – I really like this weather. A look out the window confirmed nothing has changed since this morning – it is raining.
Why do I like rainy days so much?

To be completely honest, I never did like rain. It is mostly unpleasant experience of cold and wetness, adding depressive mood on top of wet annoyance.

But all that has changed. The perspective has changed. My perspective. Learning to be more present and intentional has enabled me to be more perceptive and appreciative of moments, experiences, people and things.
But this is not a post about how to be more present … I think this post wants to be a love letter to the grey skies.

why do i like rain so much

Grey skies told me to stay in bed.
They whispered, in their soft cloudy manner, there is nothing out there for me.
So I closed my eyes and reached in for my soul.

Waking up to yet another grey morning. Calm and monochrome skies are my company again, droplets of rain sing to my soul and I feel the bliss.

I like the way you look, how you sound and how you don`t taste like nothing at all. I love how your calmness gives me incentive and makes me feel alive. The smell of you spilled all around me gives me power.

Reflections that you present to me as gifts allow me to see true beauty in unexpected places.

a love letter to the grey skies

While I watch you through the window, you being yourself, playing with everything in your way, unapologetically intrusive – you calm me.
While I hide myself from you, I want to see all of your faces.

You put my mind at ease and liberate my soul.

Grey skies told me to stay in bed.
Today I did`nt listen.

The little things in life that make me happy

The key to your happiness are…

The Little things in life … are the most important things in the Universe! Those little, seemingly insignificant things in our daily life are exactly what makes us happy each and every day.

The rest (all those big stuff) is just a bonus.

So you have to start noticing the little things in life that make you happy. I am sure you are auto-piloting a number of them without even knowing that they once brought you joy. Or maybe they never did, you started doing them for some other reason, but the point is – they should.

Start paying attention to all the wonderful big little things in life that are shaping your path into happy future, you just need to be aware of them and how happy they are actually making you. When you do, you will always be happy.

And that is what we all want, right?

The little things in life currently making me happy

Little things in life that make me happy

What are the little things in life that make us happy, anyways?

They are whatever makes you feel happy when you are not, they are that something that makes you feel special, good, relaxed, thrilled – anything positive. The little things in life that make us happy are usually random and we “use” or experience them on a daily basis but not paying too much attention to them, not tuning in with our inner source and realizing how much those little things actually mean to us.

It can be sleeping in late, reading a book, having a spa or mani-pedi day, changing your hair color, putting on a new lipstick or listening your favorite song on repeat for the 756 time (which nobody but you needs to understand or like).

The little things in life can be literally anything and everything you want as long as it brings you joy.

My list of favorite little things in life is begins with a morning routine where I like to do all the stuff that is good, healthy and relaxing for me. I like to start my day very zen and very positive. After all the years of waking up at crack of dawn and needing 2 hours to get ready for work while multitasking and getting a bit neurotic, it is time to turn the table and do the things differently.

Also I like to listen to the music or some motivating podcast or speech while I get ready.
And while I always had my blinds down when I went to bed so the sun rising wouldn`t wake me (too early) last few days I am leaving the blinds up and falling a sleep to the light of the night and waking up to the sunrise. Nice, right?
And I am really enjoying that and appreciating the moment when I open my eyes and come to, I see the days rising. There is something uprising about that, at least for me.

Currently I am – loving, feeling, listening, touching, tasting, reading, dancing to … best little things in life

So, here is my list of the little things in life that are currently making me happy and this will to serve as a little checkup list for feelings and thoughts.

THINKING – less negative
FEELING – better and more positive
DREAMING – bigger
NEEDING – just enough
WANTING – but loving what I have
ENJOYING – my life and love

WATCHING – Imposters (it is funny, check it out)
READING – Door into Summer (nice SciFi)
LISTENING – Subeme la Radio (so guilty of replaying it, the counter at the moment says 94 repeats, I wont disclose in what time frame)
DOING – my #bujo and journal, even blogging!

EATING – mostly asian (and all the donuts)
DRINKING – water and herbal teas
COOKING – easy and quick
PLANNING – how to be even happier

This is it! My list for this week.
I am doing the same tracking in my bullet journal, so it will be nice to see the progress and the changes. I will share them here with you.

Also I would like to hear back from you, what do you think about this approach to life and what would you put on your list of the little thing in life that make YOU happy? Or on your #currently list.

Let me know in the comments! or an email if you are shy :)




Cheer up! It`s Monday. How to look forward to Monday?

Cheer up! It`s Monday is a new series I would like to introduce to my blog, under the Inner Bliss series.
The idea of the series is to start perceiving Monday as another awesome day of the week. I want to share with you all the reasons why Monday is equally awesome as Friday is. Even more so, I want to share all the reasons to look forward to Monday the whole weekend.

The purpose of Cheer up! It`s Monday is to pump you (and me) starting Saturday morning, so when the Sunday afternoon arrives you will still be high on the awesomeness of the weekend you had (nice and rested, full of energy and sparkle) but excited to start that amazing Monday you have been waiting so eagerly for.

Insane right?

How to look forward to Monday?

What is this Cheer up! It`s Monday series all about?

The purpose is to alter your (and mine too!) perception of the most dreaded day of the week. Poor Monday never did nothing to deserve such treatment and you do not deserve to be so blue every Sunday evening when you remember tomorrow is Monday.

There is no need (or point) to feel bad over any day of the week ever. Every day is an opportunity for us to feel awesome and to experience amazing things universe has set before us. The only problem is perception. Or energy, your thoughts. The stand you are having towards what is coming. And what is coming is another day that you can create any way you see fit.

Be a creator of your own awesome days, do not let other people that want to feel Monday`s blues color your day any color but the one that makes you happy.

Cheer up! It`s Monday

How to make Monday awesome?

In the Cheer up! It`s Monday series I will share things that make me happy, tips how to alter your vibe and how to pump up your vibration to pure happy and awesome.

With you, I want to explore all the ways we can get inspired to make Mondays awesome whether that is:

  • an outfit you can prepare on Saturday that will make Monday sparkle
  • new way to do your makeup, or to add some color
  • a list of plans and goals you want to start ASAP
  • anything that will make you feel Monday can`t come soon enough

Although this is just an intro post about the Cheer up! It`s Monday series,
I want to tell you that you should start with this today (tomorrow).

How to start to love your Monday today?

Take a moment or two before you go to bed and think about what would make tomorrow (any Monday) abso-fudgey-lutely amazing. If you want, you can make a list. I know I would. You can make a said list on a piece of paper, a notebook or you can use an app. Whatever rocks your boat and works best for you. Just do it.

You can start as big or as small as you want. Write your heart out and don`t worry about the number of items on your list, they are all awesome goals and important rockets of desire that will lead you into most awesome Mondays of your life and come true one at the time.

When you are done with your list, go over it and see which one can be done right now. The “easiest” one will get you going (do it!), it will start your sparkle and creative juices going and give you momentum and fill you with that thrill every Sunday afternoon dulls when you think it is Monday around the corner.
No more of that!

Hold on to that list. Revise it, add to it, admire it. That is your ticket to 365 awesome days of every year of your life.
Remember to peek on that list on Fridays and Saturdays so you can make needed preparations for your next super Monday.
I will remind you too.

Enjoy your Monday, I know I will.








How to be yourself?

How to be yourself?

Fall in love with yourself…

… because you are perfect – just the way you are.

Self love seems like one of the hardest things to master in life, yet it feels so natural to embrace it when you finally quiet down all the voices around you.

Be you, bravely. People don`t have to like you and you don`t have to care. The only thing you have to do in life is – be happy. The only person you have to like in life is you. And when you do, nothing else matters.

You can`t change what is going on around you until you change what is going on within you. Read More
