Featured on Bleeding Soul Poetry

I am baaaaaack. People I am home and I have my laptop, THIS IS NOT A DRILL. This week has been good. I was sleeping at my friends place and on Thursday I had a day off and I went to grab a beer with my colleague from work and then me and my friend hung out because we worked different shifts and weren’t able to see each other until Thursday despite sleeping in the same apartment.

Also, something very exciting happened this week. I was featured on Bleeding Soul Poetry Instagram account. Check it out!

I was so thrilled to see that they published my work. This is the first time I was featured on a site like this.

Anyways that’s it from me for now. I am off to have ice cream with my nephew. Tell me in the comments, what exciting things happened to you this weekend or in the words of Joey Tribbiani:

The jumpsuit and some rambling

Hello my beautiful followers!

I hope you all had a great day. First of all I want to thank you for all of the wonderful birthday wishes. There were just so many comments under my birthday post that I still didn’t manage to thank everyone individually.

Second of all, I am sorry. Why, you ask? Because I have been shamefully not active on the blog for the last few days. Work has just been crazy, I spend most of my day in Zagreb. Before I would always have this little window of opportunity before my work to catch up on the Poetry Bar e-mails and to prepare all of your posts, but now the company I work for moved to a new building and I have to travel longer there and therefore I don’t have that time in the morning to do my blogging business. Thank you so much for still being active here and I promise I will try to coordinate my free time better so that I would be able to be as active as I was before. You just keep on sending all of those beautiful submissions for The Poetry Bar, The Positivity Press and saving me. All of the details are here: https://bit.ly/2JLAuLX

I want to show you the beautiful gift I got from my friend for my birthday. She is just the best! We spent hours last night talking and drinking gin tonics. Luckily, I wasn’t even a bit hungover today.

Thank you all so much again and have a lovely rest of the week.

Sending love and positive vibes,

Luna

Positivity Press #22

This past week, a friend of mine came to visit me in Seattle, WA, all the way from New York. It was her first time here, and it was my pleasure not only to see her and catch up after several months, but also show her around this beautiful city I call home. She leaves later today and I’m going to miss her, but we had the best time together! Attached are some photos of our shenanigans.

I went home

Hello world!
As you may have seen on my Instagram luna.theblog yesterday I went home. Finally, I am home! Since my mommy doesn’t have internet in her apartment I don’t have the possibility to post regularly but I decided to go to the nearby city library where I prepare my posts a bit in advance. So if you don’t hear from me on some days, that’s the reason why. I’ve had the most amazing time yesterday when I got back. I was with my nephew, sister and mom.

In the evening I had drinks with my best friend that I haven’t seen in ages. You know how it is when girls get together after a long time. We had so much to tell each other and we had a few shots to celebrate that I got my bachelor’s degree and she became an engineer. I don’t have any pictures from the evening I spent with her because she is a person I hang out with and forget about my phone. I love her so much!

We had a bit much to drink and a bit too much to talk about that we forgot about time and they were already turning off the music in the bar to let the people know that they are closing. We just had so much fun that we overstayed for a bit. Anyways today I am working at the library and later I am babysitting my nephew and going out in the evening.

Hope you all are having a great time, tell me in the comments what have you been up to. It’s always nice to hear from you. Love you all!

Being grateful

Throughout the day we thank our god a million times for something that happens good to us but most of the time it’s just empty words without any meaning. Today I decided to begin to actually be grateful for the little things in life which I take for granted because I honestly believe my life will be more fulfilled if I perceive some small, everyday moments as great life gifts.

I am grateful that I have a small circle of good friends which are always there for me and that I actually have friends who can sit with me and drink coffee for hours and just talk. Drinking coffee together is something me and my friends do often. In Croatia an hour and a half long coffee drinking is a part of our culture. Take-out coffee is not so popular with us because we like to sit in a bar and drink our coffee with our friends and we are so used to this that we take it for granted. I decided to be grateful for having friends to do this little coffee drinking tradition with.

There is one special friend I have. She is my best friend and the person that knows me best and she is my mother. I’m not some mommy’s little princess but my mother is such a special person, she’s my warrior and I’m so grateful to have such a strong role model in my life. She taught me what love is, that I can survive everything and that I’m strong enough and good enough to reach my full potential in life. She made so many sacrifices for me and I owe her to be the person she always believed I was.

I am grateful for every morning in which I have time to eat a healthy, delicious breakfast. I’m a breakfast enthusiast, breakfast is everything but I stopped appreciating it as I did before. From now on, every time I have my oatmeal or sandwich in the morning I will remember to be grateful to be able to enjoy it.

Zadar is such a lovely, warm, beautiful town and I enjoyed it a lot until I got used to it. I forgot to appreciate the sea, the bridge, the Greetings to the Sun, the Sea Organ, the talkative people, the beautiful sights and beaches, the old town… Most of the people who visit Zadar are left amazed with it and I live in this beautiful city so I’m going to be more grateful for all that it has to offer. Click here to check out some photos of Zadar if you want!

I have been going through some hardship lately and I talked about it in my post Self-doubt and Lack of Motivation. I am grateful for all the problems I went through, all the nights spent crying and for every time I thought I won’t be able to go forward anymore because if I hadn’t gone through all of that I would never be able to start building a stronger version of myself as I am doing right now. This collapse I survived made me realize I am strong enough and that hardships are here to make us remember what we are capable of so I’m grateful for the good and the bad, the darkness and the light.

I could go on forever with this list but I’m going to stop here. I hope you liked this and tell me in the comments what are you grateful for!

Thursday

This week was all about catching up with work on time. Every students says he will do his tasks on time and this year I’m actually trying to do it and it’s… Well boring as hell.  

I had to spend 5 hours I the office for students to enroll in the new semester and it was exhausting but I made it through. Today I only had two lectures and I had a coffee and went on to have pizza with my birthday girl Gabrijela. We strolled around town for a while and then I went back home. 

Today’s outfit is pretty casual. I love this jacket which I got at a sort of a vintage shop. I think it has a great print so I bought it and also it was very cheap. I paired it with my new ankle boots, a simple black skirt and jeans shirt.  

This is pretty much it from me for today. Hope you are all having a wonderful week. Kisses!

Who is your person?

When the lights die, when you wash off the remains of the day off of your body and when the masks we wear come down who is the person you wouldn’t be embarrassed to be seen by? Who is the person in front of which you don’t need a mask because they know who you are and accept you for it? Who is the person you call in the middle of the night just to hear them and calm yourself down? What name or names came into your head?

I wrote a lot of questions just to make that name or those names come into your head. I’ve spent two weeks in my hometown with my family and with my girls and it made me think about the person I was, the people I gained and lost, people who taught me life lessons and the people who I allowed to stab me in the back despite my own better judgment.

My first name is my mother because that woman has an answer to every question and she was my biggest support over the years and after her I have them.

friends

My best friends. The family I picked for myself. I’ve made many mistakes when it comes to choosing friends because I’ve let people take advantage of me, push me around, make a fool out of me and humiliate me. I still fall into traps with people and I still get stabbed in the back by the people I let into my life with open arms but that’s all life. Everything is a lesson as long as we allow it to be.

You need to know who your people are. You need to create a circle of people who support you, understand you and love you and you need to do the same for them. Surrounding yourself with people who are good for you isn’t selfish, it’s NECESSARY. If you stay stuck with people who are bad for you just because you are afraid to be alone or change something then that’s on you and everything that happens is your responsibility.

You will get knocked down by people but as long as you know how to learn from it you will be able to stand back up. It isn’t about having many friends, being known by everyone and having all the attention – it’s about the people who you call in the middle of the night crying, the people you call when something great happens, the people who make your day just by being in it, the people who aggressively believe in you, the people who won’t be afraid to stand up to you when they see you’re doing a mistake and so on…

You need to love yourself enough to surround yourself with such people and you need to know that you are worth having people like that. No matter what you did in life and how many times you made mistakes you don’t deserve to be humiliated, pushed around, used and miserable.

Even if you are alone now, you don’t need to be afraid. Strength is built in loneliness and it’s better to be alone than in bad company. Everything you need will come to you as long as you love yourself enough to accept it.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone! This is definitely my favorite holiday but today I’m not having such a great time. I came home on Thursday and let me tell you that the ride home was a mess. Our car broke down and me and my brother-in-law had to wait for the towing service for an hour and a half. When we finally got home, we had some dinner and the next day I spent the evening with my friends which I haven’t seen for four months.

Saturday was a family day for me. I went to see my grandma and in the evening I had dinner and opened a bottle of wine with my family. Then the Christmas morning came and I wanted to kill myself.

I have such a terrible cold. I can’t breathe and what’s worse of all I can’t eat. All of this food and I’m sick to my stomach. I’m trying to keep a positive attitude but it’s not working that well so my plan is to stay  warm under the blanket and watch movies.

Here are some pics from my past few days home and some pics from my nephew’s Christmas photo shooting. As you can see Christmas in my house revolves around my baby nephew because it’s his first Christmas and he is just so adorable!

Advent in Zadar

Yesterday I went to the Advent in Zadar with my friends. The night started great with me waiting for the bus and my friend Leonora calling me to tell me she’s late. That’s kind of her thing. She rarely comes in time for anything. I went back to my apartment because it’s very close to the bus station and I waited for another bus. When we finally got to the Advent we found our friends. We drank mulled wine and enjoyed the Christmas atmosphere. It wasn’t cold for me but it was for my friend so we ended up in a bar drinking wine and talking. It was such a sweet night.

breakfast

I woke up late today and I was craving a big, tasteful breakfast so I made one. My regular cup of coffee, water, sandwiches and orange. Now that I’m full it’s time to get down to business but it’s really hard because the only thing I can think about is going home this week and Christmas. I just can’t wait.

Fun Friday

food-and-wine friends ootd

Blouse: H&M / Pants: Stradivarius / Shoes: Sandro Rosi 

Right now I have a temporary one-month roommate Ivana. She is one of my friends from the university and since both of us still have exams this month we decided to live together to split the costs of rent and yesterday we went to relax ourselves a little bit. We had some cake, went to the Greetings to the Sun and then we went to a bar and drank some wine. When we got back home we downloaded a movie called “Mirror, Mirror” and Ivana made some chocolate souffle. Thank God she knows how to cook because I’m terrible at it!
