Small pleasures of life...

You can find happiness in the smallest of things. I've always believed that.
My happiness is simple and this year has been so kind to me...

the end...

"What time is it?"
"It's 5am..."
"Oh God! have I slept at all?"
"Yeah, you closed your eyes for a couple of hours.But since you won't be sleeping any more, why don't you wake up for good?
"I can't...I'm too weak....sorry..."
"Oh, come on.It's not your worst day.You're such a whiner...wake up and use me!"
Looking at myself in the mirror: my eyes are swollen from insomnia and crying.
"I look like hell... going back to bed!"
"Please don't...you can do it, I know you can.Just remember I'm going to be with you every step of the way".
"But...what if I fall?"
"Well, if you fall...that's why I am here for.Trust me! "
I was looking at it feeling the emptiness of myself... and pain...so much pain...
"Will it ever go away?"
"It's not made to go away, but in time you'll control it and it will become another part of yourself... just like a scar"
"But scars sometimes hurt...when the weather changes."
"Yes, they do and that's a good thing. They will always remind us the journey and how much we've achieved."
And that's when I took it and unfolded it: my yoga mat.
And before I knew it...
Breathe in " May I be well, may I be happy, may I be loved"
Breathe out " May you be well, may you be happy, may you be loved "
....................."I release you"...................

2015- Eat, Pray, Love ?!

so..it's 2015..and what have you done?
I have done pretty much everything I wanted . It's been a year full of everything and I'm looking forward to enjoying the next one. Checking through my latest posts I couldn't help but notice that the blog is becoming more and more "ME" centered, although it started as a "KIDS" centered blog. Am I becoming selfish, self-centered or I'm going through a phase that puts me  back on the driving seat  ?! 
One of the things I loved last year was the fact that in spite of the heavy schedule, I still found time to read. The last few years were a bit dry on that aspect, but I'm catching up really fast. As a matter of fact every now and then I'm spoiling myself with a walk to the bookstore and...oh boy, I never leave empty handed .
The last one was  "Eat, Love , Pray " . I also started watching the movie. In my goodreads group someone asked a question " has this book changed your life?" I answered to myself "definitely not.But it did give me a new perspective on life, love, spirituality." Most people rated it as a mediocre book.I couldn't disagree although up to a certain  point it answered some of my questions and surprised me with some of the insights.
Here's one of the things that I loved the most. We all have this idea that a soul mate is someone that completes us, someone that is meant only for us,someone who fits the equation perfectly. Apparently it's not and it stroke me how much sense it makes and how silly of me to not have thought of it until now. It is after all obvious.
After this book I jumped to "Gabriel's Inferno" :P :P What the heck was I thinking? I think a part of me has always been regretting not giving "50 shades of Grey" any chance and decided to try something that it supposed to fall in the same category. Although people rated the book as pretty good ?!!! I'm a bit disappointed.But I must finish it, or at least read enough until I get what the fuss is all about  :D
