The way to apology

I always say " Never apologise for who you are " but when it comes about our actions and how they affect the people we love the most , then i say to ask for forgiveness. 

There are times that we say or do things without realising and heart people. If you know it immediately , it would be nice to say I'M SORRY !
If not , then the person we had offended should say it the sooner the better , so our relationships not be broken at the end . It is a great achievement for yourself , first of all .

So here are the 3 most important parts to an apology: 

                                                                #1 Say you are sorry 

Before almost 2 months , without realised what i was saying ( yes , human being here , make mistakes too ) i made the person i love the most upset. The other day we were talking on the phone and it came up . Most of the times is not what you say but how you say it and that hurts . 

                                                             #2 Own it / no excuses

By the time i heard it , i felt so embarrassed that it was like loosing the ground under my feet.Without second thought , i knew i owned an apology. This time no excuses on the table , only i was so deeply sorry for being so stupid and not counting my words. It is not bad to make mistakes , it is when you know it and don't make anything about .

                                                   #3 Don't repeat the behaviour 

I don't know if she will ever read this post but it was a personal experience, i wanted to share it with you guys and make sure that you ( and i ) start to think twice before we speak. Because we can not take back words but we can learn from our mistakes. 

Never apologise for who you are but apologise for your actions , only when family , friends or even your partner is hearted . Feelings may be increasing as we speak. 

I'm sorry for made you upset !

" To find yourself , think for yourself " Socrates

" Be careful of your thoughts , they become words
Be careful of your words , they become actions 
Be careful of your actions , they become habits
Habits they become your personality , which become your destiny "

On my previous post , i talked about loving our bodies , accept who you are and never have to apologise .
Today , i will talk about thoughts and how they can affect our lives. As you already saw above , everything starts from just a simple thought and it ends to become our destiny.

How many of us , mainly , when we are angry with someone or with something , we are having bad thoughts which can lead to actions ?
On the other hand , what happens when you think the face of a loving person ? Your dad's , your mum's , your brother's or sister's ?? Your pet or you best friend? A situation ? A happy memory? Your face is glowing ! It takes time to reach the point , where you can manage your thoughts .

Once , long time ago , i was having conversation with my mother. She was insisting on that people don't change. Me , on the other side , i was telling her that was not true. They can change, only if they want to. When you can control your thoughts , you can control your actions . It's a risk that worths to take it . You own to you , to yourself !

After all our thoughts control our mood. Try to change the way you are thinking . Read books , talk with other people , take a walk , take some time for you , listen to the music. These are just simple ways to help you out . 

Start from now , today to have beautiful , nice , kind thoughts. Put yourself first and try to say a compliment , such "i love you" , "you look good today "... SAY IT , out loud !!!             The more you say it , the more affect your thoughts !

Thank you very much for taking time and read my post .

Never apologise for who you are !!!

Hello my love ones . I am so sorry for not writing long time now but it was due to personal reasons.
Also i was thinking of what should i write about but since i saw a video οn YouTube of Mara's Samartzi (greek channel ) talking about the appearance and how people can be mean, the idea came .
So today i will talk about self confidence and how people affect us .

How many of us have ever thought : "I not strong enough to do it " or "I am to skinny/fat " or "I am not so brave as he/she is ". I say close your ears to all of them , who is trying to trag you down . No one is perfect and that is the beauty of it.

When i was a kind , everyone was telling to mother that i am too skinny and i should eat more. My mother was telling to everybody that i was eating as much as i wanted , plus the doctor said i was fine. They almost drive her crazy.
As i was getting older almost all my friends were weight normal , according to society's normal , and i got myself in a point that i wanted to gain weight in order to fit in ...I even went to the doctor to tell how much i should eat.. My height is 1.61 cm and i weight 48 - 50 Kg, quiet normal, right ? I have started to fell bad for myself and i was wearing baggy clothes to cover my body. 

One day , i decided i will stop listening what everyone is thinking of me and i will start to love myself more and more and more. After all life is too short for bad vibes .
It took me time to get where i am now and still i have long way front me . I am not willing to stop , are you ? 

Love your body , love yourself , stop taking into account what people says. Try to separate the good ones from the bad vibes. You are worth more than you think , from everybody thinks and at the end you will see that you made it . Whatever is your goal , i know, i am sure you can do it. The point is to have strong will .

Your life , your choices .

Don't forget Never apologise for who you are. 

Until next time ....

Monday's inspiration : Iris Apfel

Iris Apfel said : dress to please yourself !!! 

I found exceptional since everybody try to look like everyone else. When was the last time you did it ??? I totally agree to have a look at the trends or what maybe the girl , who's passing by, is wearing in order to take as inspiration and not as a copy! 

You , me , everyone is UNIQUE !!! It will a pity trying to fit in someone's else shoes and be like puss in boots !!! Love yourself and your body , these are what, in fact , 100% belongs to you.

You can try whatever you like or you don't. You can experiment with colours , fabrics , shapes , accessories and at the end it will come to you. Listen to your inner muse , as Iris says. She will never lie to you. Do your research at the internet for fashion bloggers or vloggers , if you like videos ! Look around . Inspiration is everywhere, just keep your eyes open.

Fashion and style are the most amazing travels . Don't stay in the same place ...

Have a great week !!!

Lets take a downtown stroll

What i love the most is to pretend i am tourist at my city! Since traveling is one of passions , i thought to take a walk at the centre of beautiful Vienna.
I started with the view of Saint's Stephansdom. There are a lot of coffee places , where you can enjoy the original viennese café or a glass of prosecco .My favourite one is Hawelka , a vintage cafe which it does not seems from the outside but you can feel it as you go through .     

 Later , i found myself outside from the neo-baroque Burgtheatre, one of Vienna's many theatres.                  


As i walked down the street i came across with the Austrian Parliament Builiding, which is an other work of art! It has been placed on the Ringstrasse and it was completed in 1983. The design featured a Greek revival style , with the statue from Goddess Athena placed on the iconic fountain right in front of the facade. The design of the building was inspired by the Zappeion in Athens .


 As my walk was coming to its end and still had some time for shopping , i stared walking toward to Mariahilfer Strasse . The longest shopping street in the city. It worths to pass by .

Thank you for reading it..

A week in Rome

Welcome to Rome. Welcome to the city you fell lost between ancient Rome and new times. Let's explore this amazing city ....


Landing on the Fiumicino Airport in Rome , we had a taxi waiting for us. So we could go at the hotel easy and without stress ..

on the way to hotel

After leaving our luggages in our hotel room, we decided to take a stroll in the city.. After all it was lunch time. As we walked through the streets of Rome we wanted to burgers and which is the best place ? HARD ROCK café is answer !!!

The next morning i found this beautiful full of healthy breakfast waiting for me in our balcony room. It was my birthday , so my boyfriend surprised me !! The best way to start my day!!!
It's breakfast time 
After the day had began with best way, we were ready to explore and see the sightseeing's  of the city's. We took the tourists' bus which , by the way , is the best mean of transportation in this city...
Lets take a ride
First stop , the Saint Peter's Basilica and the Vatican !!! So stunning , even from far way you could feel it ! It was long day, but it worth it. Be prepared that you will meet a lot of people and waiting lines.. You can book your tickets on line or when you book your hop on  hop off bus , don't forget to book a day in Saint Peter's and the Vatican , as well .

                                      Saint Peter - Vatican city

Rome from above
The following day it was time for an other historical museum. It was the day for Colosseum, which was located just east of the Roman Forum, the massive stone amphitheater known as the Colosseum was commissioned around A.D. 70-72 by Emperor Vespasian of the Flavian dynasty as a gift to the Roman people. In A.D. 80, Vespasian’s son Titus opened the Colosseum–officially known as the Flavian Amphitheater–with 100 days of games, including gladiatorial combats and wild animal fights. After four centuries of active use, the magnificent arena fell into neglect, and up until the 18th century it was used as a source of building materials. Though two-thirds of the original Colosseum has been destroyed over time, the amphitheater remains a popular tourist destination, as well as an iconic symbol of Rome and its long, tumultuous history.


Everyday Italian life

After five days in this beautiful city it was about time to say goodbye. It was an amazing trip which i totally recommend to everyone. The people are amazing , although not everyone is speaking english , they are willing to help you. 
I really liked it , be cause it reminded me my home Athens...

Goodnight Rome 

So goodbye Rome .. Thank you for having us here and let us travel through the times !

I hope to visit you again and see more of you ....
