Christmas in July!

JULYAll my life I knew home, is being with my family. The last two years, living away from them, it create a huge wound in my heart. It was unbearable living away from them. It almost crushed me. But another member of my family, right next to me, gave me the strength to survive this difficult stage of my life. My good king, a great life partner and also a best friend to me. He supported me, in a way I never though exist. He shown me the way, how to accept the things in life, that I cannot change.

“It is our darkest moments

that we must focus on the light.”

-Aristotle Onassis

“Home can be such a different reality from one family to the next. It may be laden with traditions, or laissez-faire. It may include many people, or only a few. Home can be one location with strong roots, or spread over several locations. Regardless of how home life functions, it is where families of all types grow together. This environment is strengthened when it is a place of respect, kindness, consideration, and honesty.”

What define us really in life? The people we love, the things we love to do, our home, the place we choose to live our lives? For some is traveling, for others is culture, for more is education, perhaps marriage, children, family, devotion, sacrifices and the list go on and on. Whatever we choose to do, family can be, a great way to grow our selves in the journey of life.

“A family, whatever that looks like, should be a foundation for moving through life.”

So here I am. Is Christmas in July? Because today part of my family is coming here where I am, in a faraway land. A land that is not for many. You need to be very open-minded to survive Alaska. You need to love nature, more than you love people.

“Do not pray for an easy life, pray for the strength to endure a difficult one.”

-Bruce Lee

Happiness is such a wired thing. It gives you wings to fly. When it hit us, we act like children, like we own the world. We sing like angels, we act like idiots. We even write poems, under the moon. But we don’t care, either way. It is just good enough, we feel this way. And such moments are rare in life. This type of happiness that lift your spirit so high up. Makes you feel, you are in heaven. Such a precious feeling, such a treasure.

Happiness it’s a collection of the best moments in life.  Watch out for them as if they come, they will go fast quickly. But what you really need in life, in order to be happy, in balance, in harmony is the greatest gift of all, the quality of peace of mind. No matter who you are, where and how you live. If you have a peace of mind, you are a happy person on earth. Peace of mind can offer you contentment and this is the root of happiness. Our treasure, our heaven exist inside of us. We cannot find it anywhere, if we can’t feel it coming from our heart first.

“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, or worn. It is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.”

-Denis Waitley

If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude. But don’t complain. You have a lot of work to do, than waste it, complaining. Take action, take the step and most of all, take the risk and move forward despite the fear. Fear can be also a friend and not always our worse enemy. A friend yes, because it is fear that will push you forward. And then you look back and all you see, its steam.  That what it is, fear is like a steam, a cloud and now is gone.

Now, is Christmas in July. *smiles*

Forgive me, but I am happy today. And I have a good reason for it.

“You cannot dream yourself into character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.”

-Henry David Thoreau
