What I love about blogging is not just writing itself but also finding great blogs and reading interesting articles about different topics. There are so many great blogs lost in the huge amount of blogs in wordpress.

Therefore, you can recommend some of your favorite blogs (your own or from other people) in the comments for me and other readers to check out.

See you soon!

My Favorite Quotes (Part 2)

part2

Here are 8 more of my favorite quotes:

 

1. “When a child learns to walk and falls down 50 times, he never thinks to himself: maybe this isn’t for me?”

2. “Life is the most difficult exam. Many people fail because they try to copy others – not realizing that everyone has a different question paper.”

3. “Don’t cling to a mistake just because you spent a lot of time making it.”

4. “If I’ve learned anything from video games, it is that when you meet enemies, it means that you’re going in the right direction.”

Feeling Self-Conscious about my Appearance

2016-08-17 11.04.09

In school I was the tall skinny girl who was bad at sports but could eat anything I want without gaining a pound. I was actually always satisfied with my looks. Even now when the time of eating what I want is over. I gained weight and have normal weight right now. All in all, I have no problem with my weight, curves and general appearance. Isn’t that great? Who can say that they are satisfied with their body nowadays? My fashion style is quite simple and comfortable. You can’t go wrong with Jeans and a T-Shirt.

Recently, I had to deal with a difficult person. Oh boy, did this person annoy me. This person was criticizing my looks. Not my weight (this person is actually happy that I am not so skinny anymore) but my style. No matter what I was wearing, I wasn’t pretty enough. When this person saw what I was wearing (again, Jeans and a T-Shirt) this person asked me if I had prettier clothes. Not in a calm and suggestive way but in a “how can you possibly think that you look good in these clothes” way. Sorry, but I wear what I want.

How can you tell somebody that they look bad? Why does it matter what I wear? Am I embarrassing you? Am I disappointing you? (Again, I wore a completely normal pair of JEANS and a T-SHIRT!) Why do I get criticized? I would never say something like that to this person.

I wear clothes because I can’t leave the house naked and not because I want to impress strangers. Everybody should wear whatever they want. If you want to dress up, do it! If you are not interested in fashion, no problem either!

For a second, this person made me feel insecure about my looks and made me hate all my clothes. But then I realized that this person just has good intentions. This person wants me to dress up to show how pretty I actually am. This person is actually proud of me and wants me to dress to my fullest potential to show me off. This person doesn’t want me to “hide” behind simple clothing.

But the thing is, I don’t need anybody to tell me that I am beautiful or pretty because another T-Shirt or dress won’t change me. These people don’t even see and realize how beautiful I am. How can a skirt change this fact? Why should I impress people with my great style? I want to impress and inspire people with my good heart and good actions.

Don’t get me wrong. If you are interested in fashion and trends, that is great! If you don’t, that’s great either! Do what makes you happy! Being fashionable doesn’t mean you are shallow! Everybody has different interests, opinions and creative outlets. If fashion is your passion (uh I rhyme) then live your passion! But it is not my passion and that is ok.

Instead of being angry at this person, I want to thank you for reminding me what is important in my life.

Did something like that happen to you before? How did you react?

The Joy of Gardening

2016-08-11 10.54.31

I am so happy that we have a balcony in our apartment. I like to call our balcony a garden, although when I think of a garden, I imagine an actual part of the ground with soil and not just some pots lined up on concrete floor. But hey, it is all we can afford right now and better than nothing!

Since I love eating cherry tomatoes, we came up with the idea to plant our own cherry tomatoes this spring! So we went to the hardware store to look for plants but it was too early and there were no plants to buy yet. Two weeks later when we went grocery shopping, all of sudden there were shelves with seeds everywhere.

July Recap

july_c

I would like to start this series where I evaluate a month and answer some questions. I thought that weekly recaps would be a bit too much. The purpose of this series is to remind myself of the highlights of my month but also to work on myself and focus on things I want to improve or should pay more attention to. Writing down my goals, impressions and experiences each moth will help me to track my improvements and motivate me to work on myself.

 

1) What made you happy?

My 3-year anniversary with my boyfriend (do you want to know more about our binational relationship?)

2) What frustrated you?

One word: Terror
