my favourite choice

not all of our best friends follow us from childhood. when we are little, our friends are the ones with whom we go to kindergarden, later school and university, those are the children of our parents' friends, the classmates of our siblings, our neighbours and dance class partners. those are the people we don't choose, life gives them to us according to the circumstances. many of them are then lost, but the few who stay, stay forever. when we grow up, we choose our friends ourselves. of course life and destiny have those people laid in store for us in a way, but the choice is more dependent on us, than it was at the time we wore ballerina skirts at age 7.

today is the birthday of my favourite choice - mancho. she is someone who is always there. someone who understands me a bit more than i understand myself. and someone who always believes in me, even when i don't. mancho is a true sunshine, her laughter is absolutely contagious, her heart is open for everyone and she fits there so many people who are lucky to get the rays of her sun. and she is real, she never lets you down and is your partner in every crime.

manch, thank you for all you support and love. you know that i am always there for you to share your every smile and every emotion. and i am the luckiest person in the world to be your personal choice too.

—J. D. Salinger, “A Girl I Knew”

“He stepped down, trying not to look long at her, as if she were the sun, yet he saw her, like the sun, even without looking.”

“I loved her against reason, against promise, against peace, against hope, against happiness, against all discouragement that could be.”

― Charles Dickens, Great Expectations

"Why don't you tell me that 'if the girl had been worth having she'd have waited for you'? No, sir, the girl really worth having won't wait for anybody.”― F. Scott Fitzgerald, This Side of Paradise

the happy wait

we all wait for something. in this post i won't be talking about why the waiting is bad, why we should never wait and do things right away. in this  post i want to talk about the good waiting, the good feelings waiting gives us.

probably this is the time of the year when everyone is in waiting mode globally. with december getting colder and colder everyday, our hopes and dreams for the coming year are getting bigger and bigger. i love that super feeling between now and the actual moment when you know something you have been thinking and getting ready for is coming. the moment of happy shaking heart. when you count the days and it is closer and closer. may it be the arrival of your friends whom you have been missing a lot, your birthday for those who love it, the opening of presents under the christmas tree, or more precisely, the opening of your presents by someone for whom you have been packing them in the first place; the flight date to a long awaited destination, the airing of your project, the ding of your favourite dish on the oven, first snow in georgia, a present on your workplace from secret santa, a perfectly fitting dress from the atelier, the city lighting up with the decorations, the first notes of the song on a concert of your favourite band - i'm talking about all those things that you know for sure are going to happen and you keep striking out the days on the calendar to get closer to them every day.

the best part about this waiting is knowing that some of the best things of our lives haven't happened yet. and we exactly know they are worth waiting for.
