we're the prettiest when we're happy

my main inspiration for this post is eric benet, whom i just adore.

i will start my day and your day with some positive thoughts:

spend life with those who make you happy, not with those who you have to impress. if something makes you happy, do it. if it doesn't then don't. stay true to your heart. find happiness in the simplest things. and dream. even if people tell you that you dream too much, don't stop. i am a dreamer myself and the happiness i find in my dreams is precious.

i love dreaming. and i love following my dreams. i try not to let stupid little things break my happiness. sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. i love hearing old songs i used to love. they are like memories i can always go back to. and i love those memories because they make me smile no matter what.

you only live once so do more of what makes you happy, because as audrey said:
we're the prettiest when we're happy

be with those who never stop trying to show you how much you mean to them even after they got you.
and try to make no one know your business. because relationship always lasts longer when nobody except two of you is involved. and know that the best relationships usually begin unexpectedly.

and remember, that nobody is perfect. until you fall in love with him.

how about no?

this is my new year's resolution - this year i will do my best to learn to say no. all my life i have been suffering because i have this crazy fear of upsetting people. that is why i almost always think about others in the first place. if i don't want to do something or don't want to go somewhere - i end up worrying about people asking me for this or that.

but it complicates my life so much. because all such stories end up in an even bigger confusion. i can't refuse, then i postpone, then i promise, then postpone and then in the end i try to say no, and it's always too late, somebody gets even more upset, the situation becomes even harder and i can never find way back from that labyrinth.

sounds great ha? so this year, all this is going to change!

orthodox christmas

we celebrate orthodox christmas on 7th of january.

the fasting begins end november, so all the new years and holiday season i personally await 7th of january to eat all the tasty food. in the evening the preparation starts - we cook special christmas pie, with cheese and eggs. in one part of the pie we hide a small surprise and the one who gets it in his piece has to make a wish, which will definitely come true this year. i have a great experience of those wishes coming true from year to year.

and there is also a fantastic georgian tradition of lighting candles in front of the windows at night and opening doors a little bit - so that angels enter your home on the holy night. tbilisi is so beautiful - all the windows have candles in them and the spirit of christmas is all around the city.

since i started talking about wishes coming true, i think that the small surprise hidden in a pie is not enough for their fulfillment of course. the most important thing is the belief. when you believe that something great is going to happen to you it sure does. i have a great example of that happening in the life of my close friend now, which once again proves that:

You have to believe. Otherwise, it will never happen

summer dreams

this is what i see right now, while i am writing this post. and this is what actually inspired me to write right now. when i look at those lights on my shelves i imagine myself very far away from my flat, my city and even my continent.

but every post needs a soundtrack, listening to which makes the letters flow and form into words and sentences. my soundtrack for today is celso fonseca and his 'slow motion bossa nova'. just as i pressed play, those lights on my shelves turned into lights on the beach somewhere near the ocean and white sands. those of you, who live in the place like that are the luckiest people in the world. rest of us are left only with the option of dreaming about your paradise, or fulfilling the dream once, maybe twice per year.

so now i am on the beach with my friends, sweet cocktails, colourful lights above us, nice music on the background and lots of dancing. the type of dancing when you are not squeezed among dozens of people in a stuffy club, the type of dancing when you can dance and smell the sea. and the type of evening which is full of people you love, new people you meet and beautiful music in the air.

this is not the post i am supposed to be writing as my first post in january 2013. but maybe this snow and holiday season is already enough? maybe i don't want to listen to jingle bells anymore. and maybe it's time to switch my ringtone from 'it's the most wonderful time of the year' to a nice samba song?

leaving you with celso fonseca and your own dreams and memories of your perfect summer night.
