Just because it's (almost) Christmas...

...and at Christmas you tell the truth:
let me say
without hope or agenda

and just in case the Mayas' predictions for Friday 21/12/12 come true

Σε σένα που με (ξ)έχασες.

Let's make another try ;-)

5 hours waiting at Frankfurt's airport, on my way back from Greece, were enough to make me think of new beginnings...and returning to my attempt of expressing my thoughts and feelings via blogging.

Frankfurt: a city that I haven't visited but which became a significant "station" of my life.
But that's all it was proved to be: an intermediate station not a destination.

As unease as I initially felt for having to spend all these hours in the airport (that seemed the only option when we reached the snow covered German territory few minutes after 5pm local time) these hours were not that wasted in the end.
After wondering around the corridors of my mind, confused by the memories, the images of the past and whoever Frankfurt was connected to in my state of mind, I started noticing the Christmas decorations, the tasty-looking sweets and my eyes stopped at a book: Who moved my cheese?
How funny indeed...even the title reminded me of a (not that funny) joke that someone that I used to know was saying, but which had to do with a burger(μου κλέψανε το μπιφτέκι) rather than cheese!

How can a small book make you change the perspective of things? By the same way someone else's decision can change your way of thinking-trusting-loving I guess.

"Who moved my cheese" by Spencer Johnson: highly recommended to anyone that has to deal with changes in his/her life.

And here's a song to remind me my 2012 resolution (gia na min 3exniomaste-excuse my Greeklish):

To new beginnings λοιπόν...

Whatever you have to say, Blogger can help you say it

... am, de!

To whom it may concern,

-Why do I have to PUBLISH my inner thoughts?
-Why do I  have to answer "what's in your mind"?
-Why can't everything be as simple as it used to be?

After my attempt to follow the trends I realised that blogging is not for me. I'm not a writer or reporter.
My English is not as perfect as my Greeklish :D.
I'm one of the ordinary people who can communicate their thoughts with friends and loved ones in real life-on real time.

I don't need followers or likes to feel special.
The ones that matter already know.

Goodbye-ante geia

Just because I felt it...

Just for my peace of mind I decided to share a piece of my thoughts and interests in the most common form of public view exchanger of our times.

Keeping diary has helped me before when the things seemed too dark for one reason or another...this is a phase I'm going through again :(.
I need to write what I'm thinking, what I'm feeling, what I'd like to say to someone that is not in my life anymore (or to be more accurate"that decided not to keep including me in his life"), to take it out of my system and just move on.

It's gonna be a series of miserable posts at the beginning...but in my country we say that if you share the sadness it becomes more bareable and if you share the joy it multiplies.

I'm not doing it to gain friends and followers. I'm attempting it to find my balance.
"Look ahead and have no expectations": that's the biggest lesson that life has taught me so far!

If something is worthy, it will be discovered without extra effort on the right time, by the right people and for the right reasons.
If not, at least you faced another challenge and had another tick in your "to do list".

And that's the simplest introduction to my blogging experiment I could think of.

To know us better: 'cos that's FUNdamental in all relationships-
                                                                                    another lesson that I always TRY to remember!

"ifigeneia" for you
