I drank my tea and started to write. To you. To each of you out there who's maybe,
reading this now.
tired from everything.
Lost, even with no reason or because of million reasons. I don’t know.
But I think right here in the end of November it’s time to slow down.
Stop asking questions for a bit and finally start eating chocolate in embarrassing quantities.
This is the time to let it go.
The time when the air moves, and you actually see this,
when in a cats purr you hear a whole symphony, and your favorite warm sweater feels like home.
It’s time to watch gray sky with a bright pleasure. Because without a gray sky you would never know how the blue one really tastes like for your soul.
And someone would say this is depressive, but we, you and I, know this is just a sweet vacuum.
A slow down mood. And you know.
know and love this penetrating sound of the crisp November days. This music is for us.
No one else can express their thoughts so clearly, as November does it.
Sometimes thousands of questions lead you to nowhere.
Sometimes one answer out of the universe changes it all.
This is what we crave for, here in the end of November.
I wish you one answer.
I wish you tons of lightness.
To live with eternally hungry eyes, to have a room for the wind and always to take the sky too much to the heart, as it's something very personal. I will never exchange these skills for anything else. Happy to taste each day, happy to feel the storm, and to enjoy the music of it.
Music is everywhere. Everywhere I go, and in everything I see. And this is mine.
And this is me.
It is somewhere on the border.
There. Here. Where one chapter has been finished, and the other one has not yet started. And you're dying to know what is about to happen. When you're in anticipation of the dream travel, or coming back home after a long trip. It is when the rain starts softly, but you know it's gonna be shower, when the snow falls for the first time, when the Sun shows up after days and days filled with gray. It is when you recognize the shape of spring in the middle of February. And the air is so-so yours.
I think I always miss the sea. And maybe sea just misses me.
You should talk to the sea with no words. So that you can hear each other better.
And watch silently as the waves are moving, as the seagulls are going crazy in their freedom and sky, and as the boats are pushing each other in a friendly crowd. It feels like nothing more to wish for.
Sea. And I can nowhere to be found.
Говорить с морем нужно молча, так слышнее.
И молча смотреть, как движутся волны, как чайки сходят с ума, и как толкают друг друга яхты в дружной тесноте. Кажется, что больше ничего и не нужно.
Море, это там где меня не найти.
I remember that wind, dove into my hair and every kiss by the sea. I remember cute houses chatted with each other. And I remember the golden light all the days long fell from the sky, and every early morning it entered my room and penetrated into my eyes, into my soul.
I remember the incredible sunsets when the sky was madly in love...
Everything. Everything is so alive. In a place I'm nowhere to be found.
Я помню этот ветер, нырявший ко мне в волосы, и как целовалось море. И домики, болтавшие друг с другом. И золотой свет, с утра до вечера падавший с неба, проникавший в комнату, и ко мне в душу, и в мои глаза. Я помню эти невероятные закаты, когда небо задыхалось от любви.
И все это такое живое! Там, где меня нельзя отыскать.
When your soul is overwhelmed with the emotions, words and sounds. When you feel so exhausted, and a deep sleep and silence is all what you really want so bad, here comes the sea call.
Because the sea has always something to tell you.
And this is very important - to listen what your own sea says.
Все-таки когда душа переполнена эмоциями, усталостью, звуками и хочется уже только молчать и спать, на море тянет, как никогда.
Потому что морю всегда есть, что вам сказать.
И это ведь очень важно - слушаться своего моря.
“-Where shall I begin...?
-Begin at the beginning," the King said, very gravely, "and go on till you come to the end: then stop.”

Autumn makes everything so right. You know, with rains and colors, with the cold of piercing wind that opens your soul wide. It's the best time to be lost. The best time to be found. The best time to begin something new. To say a final goodbye and a first hello.
So, let's just pack all the dreams into a backpack and move to Autumn. To the border between green and white. Between awake and sleep.
Hello, we're all stuck here! Isn't it wonderful?!
And I'm just gazing into my favorite yellow eyes, finding myself homeless, drifting through streets, losing my mountains, looking for something, knowing that a part of me has changed. Forever. And knowing that something really new is about to happen.
My beautiful Unknown.
And weird Graz. I am not sure that I can call you my home some day, I mean, no offense, but you don't have any mountains.
And it turned out that I am one of those who needs mountains for a good fly. But I am here and I am happy for letting you be my Autumn, dear Graz.
Being yourself is the most privilege you can afford.
To be daring, brave, adventures, truthful. It's worth it.
Can you hear this? This is the sound of falling leaves, of the rain, scratching your heart with its music, of the adventure that is about to happen.
And yes, this is the sound of Autumn.
So let's begin at the beginning.
“We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.”
Every day we choose our own reality. We decide in what to believe, what to care about, how to treat other people, how to treat the rest of the world. We choose what to see and what to find in every single minute. And every single minute we simply decide who we are.
And how often do we actually consider our happiness depended on some circumstances and conditions? We always need something to be happy. Why? Why are we so greedy, why do we always want to make deals with the universe? Why do we think that the world owes us something? And as much as we get as more hungry we become. Why can not we simply enjoy our way? The way we pursuing our goals is something what creates us.
H a p p i n e s s.
It is not a price in a war, or challenge you take. Because all your fights and challenges can make you stronger, but not happier. And definitely happiness is not something you can get with an exchange.
No money, no car, no house, or child, or marriage can make you happy.
Because happiness is an inner harmony. If you have it, or reach it - you are a happy person. If your soul filled only with wishes, if you have nothing to give to the world, if you can not feel happy just because you're alive, then nothing would ever satisfy you. And you will always starve.
Do you know how much magic is hidden in everyday reality? How happy are you just because you have where to live, what to eat and what to wear?
We like to compare ourselves to others, we like to think that all the worst is happening right here, with us, and that's the reason we are so unhappy. We want to think that other people have money, success, beautiful body just because they were lucky to get a ticket into an easy life full of joy... We like to find excuses to our own life choices.
Complain is the first thing that makes us loose. Laziness is the second one.
Start your every day with a smile and remembering all the things you are grateful for, you'll see the beautiful changes in your life very soon.
Stop complaining and have enough courage to dare be the one you really want to be.
And you will understand happiness depends on our own decisions.
We see the world as we are.
Well, based on who I am, I made a small list. My 10 really simple rules to be happy every single day, no matter what.
This is what I really do in my everyday life, what helps me to survive in my crises, to keep moving forward to what I stand for and to be grateful for what I have.
Maybe I should do my basic postulates for being happy in general as well?
Hope this one will really help somebody!
