Happiness…

Happiness comes in different ways, most of us are looking for happiness by looking for love or our other half, others are defining happiness by the employment that they achieve. But really is happiness something we can easily find or is it something we could much simpler create. To me happiness is found in the little details: for instance when you wake up in the morning to a beautiful sunshine, or when you spend an amazing evening with your friends. Happiness is hidden in details and one has to open up to see them. We can spend all our lives looking for something undefined and calling it “happiness” without realising that in fact what we are looking for is just right in front of us…

If dreams were to come true

If dreams were to come true

The oceans would be bridged

And I’d scream “I love you”

And pray your heart is reached.

If only for one day,

We could live in my dream

If only for one day,

My heart could finally scream!

If dreams were to come true

You would be here with me

I’d put my arms around you

Sitting by the sea..

The mild wind, blows away our past

We dream together

Wondering how long it will last

And pray it does forever.

If dreams could come to life

We would believe in love

And just as a white dove –

I’d wed – to be your wife!

Sunlight

The sunlight cuts through clouds,

A rainbow comes after a storm,

You swept away all my doubts –

With your look – so warm!

 

The kindness in your eyes 

Like a summer day in May.

I know there will be no lies

In everything you say!

 

Smart, talented and modest – 

What else could you ask for?

As a knight so flawless

You are a gift to her…

 

You are the highlight of her day

With simplest things you say.

The sunlight cuts through clouds –

No doubts, no doubts…

BOOKS WORTH READING

Hello there,

In my previous post I wrote how hard it is to find good books and good readers today. However, there are a few books that should be read by everyone at some point in life. Here is my list of books:

 

1. One Day by David Nicholls

Image

 

A book about friendship, romance and time. Don’t waste your time and tell that one person how you feel because for all you know they might be feeling the same way!

 

2. Starter For Ten by David Nicholls

Image

University/College Life. A boy lost inside his own thoughts and driven by this idea of becoming closer to his long lost father through the intellectual game. On his way he finds out about love and friendship. 

 

3. Pride And Prejudice by Jane Austen

Image

 

Classics. Every girl deserves her own Mr. Darcy! Read the book and you will know exactly what I mean! 

4. Sense And Sensibility by Jane Austen

Image

 

Another great novel written by Jane Austen.

5. The Great Gatsby by  F. Scott Fitzgerald 

Image

 

I know, I know the film is out in the cinemas but if you want to truly understand the story and picture it all for yourself read the book first. Today’s society is not that much different from what it used to be back then. The tools have changed but all rules of the game apply.

6. The Sense Of An Ending by Julian Barnes

Image

 

A story that is unpredicted and holds your attention up until last page. After the story is over the book provokes a debate due to unclear and open end which triggers beautiful discussions. This book makes you think of relationships and how an event that happened a day, a month, a year or even a lifetime ago can haunt you back in the future.

 

7. The Catcher In The Rye by J.D. Salinger 

Image

 

Another great classics novel.

8. The Shadow Of The Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zàfon

Image

 

One of the best books ever written. Mystery, romance and the absolute beauty of books are portrayed in this book! This story is intriguing and is an easy and interesting read!

9. The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne

Image

Read the book before watching the film. Sentimental. Powerful. Strong. Puts you in the time frame where life was uneasy reflecting the political issues of the time through the eyes of a young boy.

 

10. The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks 

Image

 

A book that one should read whist chilling on the beach. Romantic novel. 

 

Each of these books has affected me in one way or another. I believe that at least once in your life you should read at least one of these books and perhaps they will have an effect on you too! 

Enjoy the read!

 

PS: this list is incomplete, more books to be added!
