Something to think about… March 19, 2009

So I figured, I’d write another post, since it’s 5am and i have nothing better to do. lol

So I was sitting online looking at random websites and I came across this blog with some things to think about. It made me think about my whole life, and how if it wasn’t for my past and the people I knew/know, I wouldn’t be who I am today. Everything that happened in my life, made me a lot stronger and a better person. It makes me look forward to the future.

Here’s something to think about:

When the door of happiness closes, another opens, but often times we look so long at the closed door that we don’t see the one which has been opened for us.

Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one so that when we finally meet the right person, we will know how to be grateful for that gift.

The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch and swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you’ve ever had.

It’s true that we don’t know what we’ve got until we lose it, but it’s also true that we don’t know what we’ve been missing until it arrives.

It only takes a minute to get a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, and a day to love someone but it takes a lifetime to forget someone. Don’t go for looks, they can deceive. Don’t for for wealth, even that fades away.

Giving someone all your love is never an assurance that they’ll love you back. Don’t expect love in return; just wait for it to grow in their heart but if it doesn’t, be content it grew in yours.

Go for someone who makes you smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright. Find the one that makes your heart smile.

There are moments in life when you miss someone so much that you just want to pick them from your dreams and hug them for real. Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all you want to do.

May you have happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, enough hope to make you happy. Always put yourself in others’ shoes. If you feel that it hurts you, it probably hurts the other person too.

The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.

Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss and ends with a tear. The brightest future will always be based on forgotten past, you can’t go on well in live until you let go of your past failures and heartaches. When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. So live your life so that when you die, you’re the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.

 

Hello! March 5, 2009

Hello!

So it seems like everyone is getting a blog, so I decided to get one. I gave into the peer pressure lol.Anyway, I really don’t know what to write about so I’m just gonna talk about myself for now until I come up with something else. ;P

Well, I was born in Bialystok, Poland.

That's where I was born

That's where I was born

I was mostly raised by my grandma and my grandpa because when I was 3 and my sister was about 1 and a half,  my dad moved to United States to make more money (he usually come back to Poland once a year, sometimes every 1.5 years) and my mom would go back and forth between Poland and United States (there were times when I saw here once a year too). My grandparents were like my parents. I love them so much, and miss them terribly.

I loved the small city I lived in. Most of my family lived there, so usually twice a month we would have huge family dinners. Man, I miss those times. Sometimes, I wish I could go back in time and relive those days again. Everyone was always there for each other, there wasn’t a day that someone from the family would come over for a coffee and to just talk. It was really weird for me when I moved to US and the only family I had here were my parents, one of my grandmas, and three of my mom’s cousins.  Anyway, going back to Poland. Bialystok is not the prettiest cities in Poland, but there’s something “magical” about it.

I want to go back  when I’m done with college, or at least move back to Europe so I can be closer. Life in Poland  is so much different than in US. Not many people drive cars, people either walk or take the bus. It’s a lot easier than wasting money on getting a license and going through the painful lessons from instructors that make you do the impossible stuff. hahaha. The only fast food restaurant in Bialystok is McDonald’s, there’s two. I think they might be opening KFC soon though. People go to parks a lot, and get the most delicious ice cream there. 🙂 The economy is not the best, but it seems like even thought people work a lot, they always have time for their families. I loved going to flee markets with my grandparent. I didn’t have to buy anything I just wanted to look at things that people were selling. The central square was the best place to hang out at. There’s so many little cafes. And everywhere you looked there ware paintings that were displayed for sale (during the summer). I can still see the central square so vividly. You can just sit there all day and watch people pass you by.

Winter is beautiful too. My grandparent’s subdivision is at the end of town, there’s a lot of forests behind it. They look gorgeous during the winter when all that snow stick to the branches. When I was a little girl, my grandpa always took me and my sister sledding there. There was this one huge hill that we always went to, and being a little kid we had to sled from the top of it. The hill was very bumpy and it angled a little bit so you had to steer the sleds to the left on the way down. I will never forget this one time when my sister wanted to go down by herself because according to her she was big enough to go down without me. Well she didn’t really know how to “steer” the sleds and went right into a tree before that curve. You could tell that she was in no much pain, her nose was all scratched up but she got up and tried to push all the tears aside, she said “that was awesome, let’s do it again!”

well, that’s it for now. I’ll write more soon.
