We always strive to fill our lives with significant moments. To remember and to look back at.
But the matter of fact is that no moment is significant if we don’t think it is.
a moment is, just a moment. A happening, insignificant if we don’t put a name on it.
So when we put names on moments we call them happy, sad, good & bad and we have this common agreement which is which, based on our ethics ,morals and maybe most importantly - based on how we feel about them.
But a moments is and will always be, just a moment. No matter what we call it. No matter how we feel about it. A moment will come in the future and it will pass into the past, and you are only there when it happens.
And when it happens there is no name.
The happy moment becomes a happy moment first when you start to think about it. And what you think about it depends tremendously on how you feel about it.
So you see, how you feel becomes a templete to what you will think.
So because feeling happens when the moment happens, it is impossible for you to change how you feel about it.
The only thing you can do about it is to notice your thought, understand that your thought is brought by your feelings, and simply, stop it.
When you realise that it is you, who make moments into happy moments is when you also understand that you cannot just simply look at a happy man, look at what he has, and think that by getting everything he has, you will be happy too.
That will say, looking for happiness from outside of yourself.
You will never be happy with what the happy man has, except in just that very moment of achiving it. Then you will start to se, you are not happy at all. And then you ask yourself, why am I not happy when I have everything the happy man has?
So you start to think there is something wrong with you.
But what you don’t see is that the happy mans happiness is subjective, just as your happiness is subjective. You could be just as happy as the happy man, but not with the happy mans things.
Your own happiness must be searched for and found within, you will never find it anywhere else.
I’m freaking out a little that summer will be wrapping up in a couple weeks and school will be in session. Is it just me or did it go by waaaay to fast. The cooler weather has us all a little bummed out but I’m determined to make the best out of the next couple weeks! What’s your favourite thing to do around yk in the summer ?
Recently I’ve been reminiscing very heavily about my past (or perhaps my “previous life”). All my life I’ve been aiming to forge new memories, always moving ahead and rarely looking back. Perhaps sometimes I forget certain memories too often too much, in a bid to forget the negatives associated with it. But these days, memories have been flooding back, demanding to be relived, triggered by a mere dream. I started listening to old songs, looking at old photos, conversations and my diary posts. It is when I discover the power of the written word. When I reread what I wrote, I felt like I was transported back in time into my “previous life” when the exact moments happened. Nights are spent thinking about “what ifs”. I am leading a life with barely any regrets, but at the same time there will always be questions that I will never have answers to in this lifetime. Okay end of rant!

Who knew 3 rocks could be this cool?? 🤩⛰⠀
Tre Cime Di Lavaredo is a must-do hike in the Dolomites of northern Italy! 🇮🇹⠀
The main attraction is the 3 massive rock formations, but equally as impressive are the panoramic views throughout the whole hike! ⛰⠀
For most of our morning we were surrounded by clouds, unsure what the view would become as we continued to climb 🙈⠀
But sure enough, just as we got to this spot the fog cleared! 🎉⠀
We were in complete awe when we saw the sheer size of these with our own eyes — it quickly became one of our favs in the Dolomites! 😍⠀

Travellers experience the Peruvian desert in many ways. Some of them sandboard down the dunes. Some of them watch the sunset from the dunes. ⠀⠀

Мы вышли из дома, когда за окном не было даже намёка на рассвет. В пустыне и горах ранним утром прохладно, даже если днём стоит сорокоградусная жара. По струящимся булыжным улочкам вдоль подсвечивающихся жёлтым пещер, микроавтобус взбалтывал нас ,как прилежный помощник шеф-повара, омлет. .
Когда небо начало розоветь, мы въехали в Гёреме. Описать эту местность, если не говорить языком фей, невозможно.
Перибаджалары. Камины фей. Так их называли ещё столетия назад. И сейчас они также возвышаются несчётными замками из песка среди розовой поверхности Марса и белых лунных кратеров.
По бокам высились гигантские разноцветные шары. Они были похожи на яйца космического динозавра, из которых вот-вот должно было вылупиться чудо. И это происходило. Сначало яйцо опалялось огнём, разбухало ещё больше и, сияя изнутри непрерывным светом, отрывалось от дававших ему приют скал. .
Вокруг парили шары. Их были десятки. Сто пятьдесят воздушных разноцветных шаров на высоте от ста до тысячи метров. И в одном из них, щурясь на восходящее солнце, пританцовываяя под музыку ветра, наслаждалась моментом я.
Whenever your flight is delayed more than 1 hour, always call your airlines customer service and ask for a credit voucher. Bonus: Any issue you have before, during and after flight can earn you a credit voucher. (Example: seat not extending backwards) Don’t leave money on the table ❌
