recently everyone around me is concerned to do something important with their
life, and the ones that do, are not happy. Why?
If you do
something good for the world, you have to work hard, you have to spend hours
and hours searching, studying, practicing; the result will leave you lonely and
miserable. And you will come to this idea that I am not happy.
group will be the ones who do whatever they want, follow their heart but at
some point they will come to this idea that they have not done anything
important for others.
the first day of October. And autumn is officially here.
we are having cool breezes all over the place and also experiencing hot sun for
2 or 3 hrs.
I want to
make my bucket list for three months of this fall : )
run for 3 days a week
*Start yoga in YogaŞala *Eat more
*Clear my working problems with my boss (Hours problems, salary problems)
*Be more grateful
*Long walks with Maya
*Go more to the nature; Rize, Black sea
*Take more photos
*Smile and appreciate each minute of life
*Prepare my closet for cold days
What about you?
Grab a pen and a paper, write down your list and clip it to your journal
and share it online! Don’t forget to mention me. Reading your bucket lists are
October calendar, I downloaded from free people website
people are dying around the world and I just get the news. I search their name and read about their life.
These days I keep thinking about other people. Their problem, their struggles
and their feelings. For first time I don’t feel any responsibility towards
them, but for first time I understand them. I mean I have come to the point of
understanding the changes between people. When someone is stuck in a
destructive relationship, or when someone is not happy with how they look, or
when the other one cannot decide which aspect of his life means more to him.
there are few people who are able to figure out themselves, I think for most of
us we have to experience life. And through experience we will learn what
matters the most.
I can be
happy with simple things. I am not searching for power. I am trying to find
peace. It’s peace that pushing me to nature, not to shout, love music and adore
walking. It’s peace that motivates me to go on my mat everyday and stretch.
When I am doing yoga, I feel that I am paying attention to my body, to all the
muscles which have served me nearly 10 years and I didn’t thank them. I think
they are all my responsibility, not people around me. My responsibility towards
others are with giving them passion. Giving them hope and introduce them their
inner body. Their breath.
inhalation of the breath prolongs life and every expiration of it gladdens our
nature; wherefore every breath confers two benefits and for every benefit
gratitude is due.
told me not to write “ghertis” anymore and I don’t! lol.
series of questions that I invite you to answer one by one:
your favorite paper you have ever written? Please write about the topic in
couple of sentences.
I blog, I journal everyday. I try to inspirational and surprising for myself. Topic of my journals are mostly about self-improvement, arts, and motivation. Above all I usually write about my experiences in life.
books did you read of late (art, fiction, non-fiction)?
I started to read Osho. But I found it somehow a series of books that you have to keep them always. So I shifted to other books (now I am reading North and South, I love the romance in it), and besides in my free time I keep continuing reading Osho.
artist really impresses you? And why?
Marc Chagall. I think I can literary walk in his paintings, I can be the bride, I can fly when the love of my life kiss me in the kitchen.
4. What are
your main interest besides arts?
blogs do you check regularly?
I check "Free People" and "Wanderlust". Bohemian life-style is one of my interests.
cultural event has impressed you lately? This can be a museum, a concert, or
anything like that, but also sports game….Again why?
Actually I went to Topkapi Palace last week. It's one of the most famous palaces from Ottoman Empire, but as far as I reminded me of all the sight seeing in Iran, for me it was beautiful but not shocking beautiful. Unfortunately I could not go to any concerts or art galleries for this full time job of mine.
describe briefly an article in a newspaper or a magazine that got you thinking
lately. Please share the link to it!
I keep reading the news about DAISH (ISIS). And I am sure I don't want to link anything related to it in my blog.
write a thought or an idea that really widened your intellectual horizon.
Women, daily life, inspirations, music, and struggles of my generation in the world (mostly in Iran).
I mean whatever comes to my mind I find a way to relate it to my country.
start anything I want to thank The WHO for Baba O’Reily. I want to shout as
hard as I can every single word of it. It’s become the only reason I put my
headphones in my ears and take a deep breathe in late summer breeze these days.
before I talked about joy a bit? And today I am joyful. I am grateful for Maya,
my cute dog, and for B who stands beside me no matter what!
Change is near
for me. And I don’t mean geographically. I mean for me and within me.
getting closer and closer to write a letter to my future. I guess I am getting
better and better with picturing my fears. My happiness. My fingers are all
alive again. Last week, I went to D&R (a bookstore in Istanbul) and bought
a Moleskine sketch book. I have started a daily practice of mandalas. I am
practicing my meditation much more. Again I am feeling this rush of drawing.
