Little Distractions

Focus. One of the most important qualities one needs on the path that leads to success. The ability to concentrate on that one task you have and lose track of time while working on it, is what makes it perfect at the end of the day.

But no matter how determined we are, we all have our little distractions that sweep us away. Don’t we? Whether it is a beautiful butterfly we see, a meaningful song we hear, a smile of a child that captivates our attention or a little puppy crawling on the streets, it distracts us; we find ourselves in the state of trance.

Believe me, this is beautiful. This means you are passionate. This means you can enjoy the moment. And this means you know how to live fully.

Don’t forget, even if focus is what gives us success, little distractions from daily life is what gives us the power to keep being focused.

Passion

Love people who are passionate about something, people who lose track of time while researching something that they are so curious about. Love people open to learn, people hungry for knowledge.

Love people who dream big, people who go after their goals. Love people who turn their thoughts in to actions.

Love people willing to love, people who bring happiness to the atmosphere. Love people eager to explore and not afraid to try.

Love people who still believe that this world can become a better place, people try to change something. Love people who create an impact, people who can touch to others’ lives.

Love people whose willingness to live shimmers through their eyes.

Be With People Who…

Be with people whom you can call at 2 a.m just because you have something interesting to share with them, people who know how lucky they are to have you in their life.

Be with people who will be there for you not only through your good days, but also your bad times, people who are for “real”.

Be with people who buy you food, people who get mad when you don’t eat well. People who look after you when you are ill, people who don’t say how much they care about you, but show this with their actions.

Be with people whom you can be your casual self next to them, people who accept you as who you are.

Be with people who cries when you cry, as well as who laughs when you lough, not people who laugh to your face and talk behind your back.

Be with people who make you happy, people who deserve the value you give them. 

A Piece of Comfort

None of our lives are passing with rainbows and sunshine. All of us, with out an exception, are going through rough days, ambling towards emptiness. And that’s absolutely okay. We are human, not robots. We fall; we break down. We cry, we need help.

The important thing isn’t not to fall down; in fact, it is being able to stand up and keep moving at the end of the day. And that’s not easy either. Sometimes we all feel so desperate that we feel the need to give up; we can’t find the power to keep going. At those moments, we need some signs from the universe that we are not alone, that everything will be okay.

Unfortunately, the universe isn’t always that generous to us. So we better create our own signs by ourselves. They don’t have to be life changing news. If something can create a little smile on your face, believe me that is a miracle. And again believe me, you’ve succeeded.

For me,

  • a cup of tea means the sincerity of my mother; it means comfort
  • a book means intellectuality; it means the power of knowledge
  • a blanket means the warmth of my home; it means safety
  • a good old song means good old memories; it means motivation and hope
  • a teddy bear means my childhood; it means pure happiness and innocence

What about yours? It doesn’t matter what you choose as your sign of the universe, or motivating object – what ever you call it. Make sure that you can find a piece of comfort in them; that’s all you should look for.

What makes you happy?

Once I read an article. It used to say during times when you feel low, the number one question you should ask yourself is “Doing what would make me happy right now?” The author believed that you had to immediately stop what you are doing and turn your thoughts into action in order to treat yourself.
At first, the idea seemed meaningless to me. After I decided to try since I wouldn’t have anything to loose, I understood that the question wasn’t as easy as you imagined it would be to answer.

I quickly brainstormed. These were the first things that came to my mind.

  • being with friends
  • eating good food
  • cooking
  • singing songs out loud
  • reading the books I want

But I wasn’t satisfied. Reading when you felt low, didn’t change anything. Even eating your favourite pasta and chocolate didn’t give the taste it used to when your head wasn’t clear. Being with friends didn’t mean anything because when you feel down, you were there physically but not mentally, no matter what.

So I started to think once again. What really makes me happy?

Believe me or not, my conclusion was surprising.  Helping others was my answer.  Helping others… At that moment I got aware, I was only genuinely happy when helping someone. No matter what, maybe a community service project, maybe tutoring a student or maybe just helping a friend. But it warmed my heart and put a smile on my face.

I’m not going to tell you to help people. Of course it’s an amazing thing. But today’s moral is that no matter what you do, please take your time to ask yourself the question. “What really makes me happy?” It will neither be quick nor be easy. But if you find the correct answer, you will see that it was worth it at the end of the day.
