Love is love

Love is love. It always was and always will be 👊🏻
:::
Why do you care who the other person likes? Who does she or he love? Why does it matter if a guy is into women or men? 🤷🏼‍♀️
:::
It is SO intimate and so individual who we love ❤💜💙💚💛🧡
I never undestood people talking bad about gays or lesbians. What is so different  about the person that he/she is homosexual? 🤷🏼‍♀️ Does that make him a worse friend? 🤔 Does that make her a worse employee? Does that make him a worse enterprenuer? Why something so intimate as who do we love has to have any impact on the rest of the world? 🤷🏼‍♀️
:::
Being heterosexual isn’t anything better and being homosexual isn’t anything worse ⚠️. People who are gay are born this way, this is a part of their character, of their personality 💬.
:::
Would you shout at a  guy because he’s into redheads while most guys are into blonds 👱‍♀️? Would you point your finger at a guy who likes chubby girls while most men like skinny women 🤨? Would you laugh at a girl who is into shorter guys while most of us like taller men 🙄? That’s just their type. That’s who they pick. That’s who they’re attracted to 🤩. And I cannot say for sure but I guess the same thing is when a guy likes another guy. That’s just his type 🤗.
:::
People really need to stop judging everybody who isn’t like them. Just because some people don’t share your interests doesn’t mean they’re worse 🙄. We all have different opinions, different taste, we like different types of music 🎶 or movies 🎬, we believe in different gods 🙏, we differ politically and we love different people ❤.
:::
We SHOULD BE all different. This is what makes us interesting as a society 😊
:::
It shouldn’t matter who we love. The important thing is to be good and kind 🙏

Communication

Do you know what’s key to good relationship?
Communication 😉
:::
And it’s not only about love relationships, it’s important to make any kind of relationship work – a friendship, a relation you have with your daughter, mom, neighbour, coworker. Anybody.
:::
We are ALL different. And nobody sits in your head, nobody reads your mind, believe me 😉. So when you don’t like something, when you need help with something you need to COMMUNICATE.
:::
Plenty woman (I used to be one of them) think that if they send „signals” to their partner he’ll know what she needs/means 😅 That if she says something between the lines about a movie she’d like to watch or talk about her friend’s new cosmetics he’ll instantly get the idea to take you to cinema to see that movie and he’ll buy those cosmetics for you 😅 No, this doesn’t work with men.
:::
Men and women work totally differently and so do our minds! You need to be loud and clear 😉
COMMUNICATE.
:::
It works like that with everybody. If you’re angry with your boss because he/she gives you so much work tell him/her politely (!) that you’re swamped and ask if he/she can maybe get one of your co-workers to help you, to divide some big task between 2-3 people, not just 1 🤷🏼‍♀️
TALK.
:::
If you’re frustrated with your friend because he keeps inviting you to places you don’t like or wants to do something you’re not fan of – tell him. He simply might not know that you don’t like it! I’m sure he doesn’t do it to make you angry, he’s just anaware of your negative feelings. Why? Because you’ve never told him that you e.g. don’t like bowling or eating at that Thai restaurant. 😉
LET HIM KNOW.
:::
We all need to talk more. Say what we think out loud. Don’t keep your thought or feelings to yourself. But remember, if it’s something negative think how to communicate it to your friend to not hurt his feelings 🙏. We should always be sincere and if you don’t like something you should say it but do it gently.

New normal

What if it is all a test? 🤔
To see whether you got your prorities set right? To see what you’re sad about when having to cancel all plans? To see if you can appreciate what you got? To see if you’re flexible making new plans, rearranging your schedules, building new paths, being creative? 🤔
:::
We can learn so much these days ⚠️ Not only about the world but about ourselves too 😉, about your closes ones whether think about you too these days, about your friends if they really care for you 😘
:::
Have you learned something new about yourself? I, for example, started to notice that I really answer to problems/anxiety with work 💪. I put more and more on myself trying to achieve as much as I can, to prove that I’m good enough, to make myself proud, to feel calm once something is complete. This is they way I cope with stress – I work even more. That’s just me but I’ll work on that 😉😅
:::
This is the time to observe, take notes and draw conclusions 📝 This is the time to learn ⚠️. So that once it’s all over we can build new ‘normal’ with the notes we took. We can use our lessons, our mistakes to set new goals, build new paths ⚠️
:::
And I’m not talking about you and me only. I’m talking about all of us as one Earth-society 🌍. We should all keep some of the actions we do now forever. Starting from taking more care abour our health and appreciating when we’re healthy 🙏, from paying more attention to hygiene and washing our hands as often as we can 👏, from keeping healthy distance from one another in a shop, not standing on somebody’s toes 😅, let’s keep this personal space 😉, to helping one another 🤝, to spreading good deeds, to caring about strangers, not only about ourselves! 🙏
:::
We can build such a beautiful new world out of it with new, better priorities, better standards and better rules. 🤩
:::
A world where we can all appreciate what we got, care about others and are willing to help a stranger. 🙏
:::
This is the time to build a new reality. ⚠️

SELF-LOVE: Suit up

SELF-LOVE 🙏❤
How’s your self-isolation going?
Are you stuck in pjs and without make up for weeks now?
Today I want you to jump out of pyjamas and suit up! 😉
Put on something nice, do your hair and make up and check yourself out in the mirror!
Maybe do some selfies? 😉😅
Simply dress up just for you, maybe try some new hairstyle or new kind of make up?
Have fun!

SELF-LOVE: Stay home

SELF-LOVE
Turn tv off, turn social media off (apart from @smileysociety of course 😉😂), stop listening to news and just relax.
What’s happening out there, is happening out there 🤷🏼‍♀️ and as it doesn’t concern you as long as you are at home 🏡.
Look at it as extra time at home to read a book you’ve always wanted to read, to watch a movie or tv shows everybody is telling you about 🎬, to take up some new hobby like decoupage or playing guitar 🎸, do yoga 🧘🏼‍♀️, do home fitness 💪 or do coloring like me 😁
I find it sooo relaxing 😍
What do you do these days?

Coronavirus era

Nature has had enough and said STOP. It revolted and made us all STOP too 🚫
:::
You know how we’ve been all running through life? Never having enough time for our inner peace, for our families, for simple things such as reading or doing puzzles?
Now it’s the time 🕛
:::
Nature made us stop. It made us all stay at home and appreciate what we have 🙏. This is the time to rebuild your relationships, to go into your inner self and work on your mindset, to set hectic life aside and focus on what’s most important – health and family. 🙏
:::
It has been around 2 months that we’re fighting with this damn coronavirus but there already has been an effect on the nature! 🌱
:::
China’s air is clean again as plenty people stayed home and stopped driving their cars!
Water in Venice’s canals is getting clearer and clearer and I hear you can actually see fish swimming there now and even swans returned! 🐟
Sardinia coast got so clean and calm that doplhins came back to the area where people scared them away some time ago! 🐬
:::
We need to be patient and it will all come back to normality soon.
:::
But what is also beautiful about those time is solidarity. The amount of help that we all give each other is amazing ❤ We are all in this together afterall.
:::
Italians singing on balonies made my heart mealt. China coming to Europe to help us all and share what they already learned about this virus made my heart grow ❤
:::
Please let this help and being a community of one not end once the virus goes away. Let’s keep helping each other 🙏
:::
So let’s all keep doing what we’re doing. If you want to help and don’t know how find out if you have any hospitals near you and ask what doctors need, they often need food, towels or simple things as paper and pens. Let’s help them! They are our heroes 💪
:::
You could also ask your elder neighbours or people who are simply scared to enter a supermarket if they need anything and do grocery shopping for them.
:::
But if you can – stay home. That’s the best what you can do now 😉

Alright guys, time for new, and possibly the most important, weekly section in Smiley Society 😉
:::
You know how I divide my week into tasks and asign each day to one of my projects (yes, I love planning and being organized 🙈)? So e.g. every Monday I work on my blog and prepare all posts for the upcoming week, every Tuesday I do research for my 2nd book…etc etc. Thursdays used to be kind of „Others” section when I did some other stuff… Now it’s time to asign a permament thing for Thursdays and this is what my new section is going to be about – SELF-LOVE 🙏❤
:::
That’s right. I decided to plan couple hours of every Thursday to spend, well, with me! 😊 Either reading 📖, doing yoga 🧘🏼‍♀️(I plan to start practicing it), doing some home SPA or anything else that is relaxing. And I advice you to do the same! 😉
:::
We all need that time for ourselves, to get our thoughts together, to feel good in your own skin, to just relax and rest from everybody else.
:::
You need to have some time for the relationship you have with yourself! 🤗 You can’t share love and love others until you love yourself, until you feel good with yourself! 😉 We all need Self-love.
:::
So from now on, every Thursday, I’ll be sharing with you my ideas for those Self-Love days. Either recommending a good book for you to to read 📖, uploading a recipe for some good (but fit! 😉) food (let’s come back to Comfort Food section 🍪) or even showing you how to make some home-made cosmetics for your home natural SPA 🧖‍♀️.
:::
What do you think? Are you with me? Do you like this idea?
Let me know! 🤗
:::
And as for a task for today – pick a day in your week to have those Self-Love days. It doesn’t have to be Thursday like me. It can be during weekend too. Just pick it and mark it in your calendar 📆 for good. It’s not about a whole day, just 2-4h for yourself.
:::
You can do it. You HAVE TO do it. If you think that you don’t have that much time for yourself….well…maybe it’s time to rearrange some things, to rearrange some prorities 😉. After all you’ll have that „me, myself & I” relationship your whole life. You need to make it work. You need to feel good in it. You need to love yourself 🙏❤

Love Yourself

Love yourself. ❤
You won’t achieve much if you don’t start with your inner peace and inner love 🙏.
:::
You won’t get people to love you and to compliment you until you love yourself, until you’re confident 💪
:::
You won’t get people to accept you until you accept you.
:::
Whatever you do, start with yourself.
Whatever you want to change, change yourself and your thinking first.
:::
Can a salesman sell a product if he doesn’t believe it works?
Can a motivational speaker motivate others if he/she isn’t motivated himself/heself?
Can an actor do a difficult role and act well if he doesn’t believe he is good enough? 🤷🏼‍♀️
No.
It all starts with this one person believing in himself/herself, in loving himself/herself.
:::
And so you need to believe in yourself and love yourself.
Once you have that you can find true love, you can pull an audience, command the crowds, you can be admired by many… you can do anything! 💪
Love yourself.🙏

Cherish little things

Have you stopped for a second and looked up the sky? 👀Morning skies in December are my favourite 😍. Always so pink (at least in Europe) and you don’t have to get up at 4-5am to see a sunrise 😅.
:::
Have you stopped for a second to smell fresh air 👃? To breathe in slowly and relax?
:::
Have you eaten your dinner today and actually saw what you’re eating? Have you thought what it tasted like? 😋 Or you just “threw it” into your stomach?
:::
Just stop and cherish little things 🙏.
We are all in such rush, especially now before Xmas, that we keep missing all the little cute details. We take them all for granted 🛑.
:::
I know we put more and more tasks on ourselves, we all want to achieve more and be successful but we need to stop to breathe from time to time 😅. To rest. To gain perspective. To get new ideas. To breathe 🤫. Especially now, during the Holidays.
:::
Please use that time to rest and to regain gratitude for basic values – good weather, color of the sky, lovely time with family, delicious food ❤.
:::
It’s such a magical time.
Enjoy! 🤗
