‘The perfect time and place’


dsc__506_Fotor-1

WHAT WOULD YOU DEFINE AS THE TURNING-POINT OF YOUR LIFE?

One day…

The perfect time and place…

The only place I could ever call home…

It might sound as a ‘cliche’, but the moment I’ve said ‘YES’, everything changed…our lives became one, our hearts took the same rhythm and home turn out to be anywhere in the world…with one essential piece…being together!

I’ve learned throughout the years that home it’s not necessarily a place…sometimes it’s a state of mind, a feeling of belonging…not to a specific location but to a person.

“Home is where the hearts is”…this quote keeps coming back to me…and if I am being honest with myself, my life it’s based on it, because home for me it’s him…not a country or a city or even a house…home is where I left my heart…

No. of words = 136

Timer 10 minutes

This was the topic I was challenged to answer by my lovely fellow blogger Lucy at Icecoffeecouture🙂 Thank you Lucy, it was fun:) I love free style writing challenges so here are the rules:

Open an MS Word document (or Pages)

1. Set a stop watch or your mobile to 5 minutes or 10 minutes whichever challenge you think you can beat. (Not sure what that meant so I just set the timer for 10)

2. Your topic is at the foot of this post BUT DO NOT SCROLL DOWN TO SEE IT UNTIL YOU ARE READY WITH A TIMER.

3. Fill the word doc with as many words as you want. Once you began writing do not stop even to turn.

4. Do not cheat by going back and correcting spellings and grammar with spell check in MS WORD (it is only meant for you to reflect on your own control of sensible thought flow and for you to reflect on your ability to write the right spelling and stick to grammar rules)

5. You may or may not pay attention to punctuation and capitals. However, if you do, it would be best.

6. At the end of your post write down ‘No. Of words =_____’ so that we would have an idea of how much you can write within the time frame.

7. Do not forget to copy paste the entire passage on your blog post with a new Topic for your nominees and copy paste these rules with your nominations (at least 5 bloggers)

The nomination list it’s wide open…if you want to get on board and take a journey with us, please take part in this challenge and create a pingback to this post:)

Would you defy fate?

Small things in our daily routine, like missing the bus in the morning, spilling coffee, forgetting something and turning back…we see them as chance. What if they’re not, what if everything has a higher purpose?

I’ve read a book recently that was based on the existence of Protective Angels. It is believed that each of us has someone up there constantly in our proximity, taking care of us …and every time we forget or miss something, it’s our angel trying to adjust our path, trying to prevent something negative happening.

I’ve found this idea really interesting and I’ve realized this movie was wrote on a similar ideology…

On the edge of winning a Senate seat, David Norris meets a ballerina named Elise. David learns that he is facing the agents of fate, who are trying to do everything to keep him on a predetermined path.

Creating a change in the future laid out for him, he must either accept an already written path that does not include Elise or else defy Fate to be with her.

When you make a decision, your mind is weighing options on how, when, where and what, those options are not always the right ones and when we tend to choose the wrong one, there is a glitch, a moment when a simple action gives us time to take a step back and re-think our next move. We don’t always notice this moment but that doesn’t mean it’s not there.

This movie it’s one of my favourite stories because it has some truth to it…I’ll be honest, sometimes I believe that our life was set way before we were born but it can change according to how soon we’ll realise that we have a choice…we all do…we have the ability to choose.

We don’t give ourselves always the option of choice, but that’s because it means we actually take responsibility for our life..and that is scary…to not be able to blame it on destiny if we might fail.

If you didn’t watch this movie, you should…yes, it has a bit of sci-fi but the message behind the curtain…that is, if you choose to reveal it…it’s much more meaningful!

Your destiny might be written but you still have free will to create your own path.

Enjoy movie night:)

‘Wicker Park’


” When love finds you, there is nowhere to hide”

I saw this movie many years ago and it became a part of my collection, not because is a love story, but because it proves that some things in life are meant to be and no matter how many obstacle we face or others build in front of us…what once was written, it will happen.

Writers: Gilles Mimouni, Brandon Boyce

Lead actors: Josh Hartnett, Diane Kruger

2004 Drama, Mystery, Romance

Some will say it’s a love story, I am not going to deny that, but there is so much more to this movie than just two hearts coming together and sharing something not all of us can understand.

Matthew and Lisa are your everyday madly in love couple until one day Lisa vanishes without a trace…after years, the search becomes an obsession and the truth reveals itself…

…a story about desire, envy, loneliness, lies and blood written destiny.

If you enjoy a love story with a twist…if you want your mind to spin in a surprising and pleasurable way…if you want complicated to unveil faith …this is the movie for you:)

Enjoy the vision of a story told masterfully!
