18 Life’s Rules

I know our society is sick; with all my sadness I can see how the envy, the madness, the selfishness, the anger and more are taking the best of people, and made them lost values, priorities and behave like idiots most of the times.

When we lost the capability of be happy for other’s happiness? for look someone and be glad because that person is being a better person and is resolving their problems? why we expect someone be in the shit and be ok with that and sometimes until happy?

We are sick but I believe in the good heart of people and essence of everyone; I believe in Karma and in all we did or wish to others in some point will return of us so PLEASE people, try to be the best version of yourself and be proud of the women or men we are, because living like a “good person” don’t make us bad.

This are the 18 life’s rules of Dalai Lama teach us for be the best version of us and don’t forget this: respect, love, kindness, empathy, comprension, gentleness, the values, honorability need to be a “trend” because with need all this and more for healing this World.

Rule 1. Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

Rule 2. When you lose, don’t lose the lesson

Rule 3. Follow the three Rs: 1. Respect for self 2. Respect for others 3. Responsibility for all your actions.

Rule 4. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

Rule 5. Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.

Rule 6. Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

Rule 7. When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

Rule 8. Spend some time alone every day.

Rule 9. Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values.

Rule 10. Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

Rule 11. Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you’ll be able to enjoy it a second time.

Rule 12. A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.

Rule 13. In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation. Don’t bring up the past.

Rule 14. Share your knowledge. It’s a way to achieve immortality.

Rule 15. Be gentle with the earth.

10 Signs You’ve Found “The One”

“The One”; this can be such a daunting term… I read today about this and can not be more agree.

This is from MindBodyGreen, I hope you can see inside of your relationship and check how is going on because like the said “WE JUST DESERVE THE GREATNESS IN OUR LIFES” 😉

Being with the right person can not only determine authentic, unconditional happiness, but your health as well. Being in a toxic relationship may keep you from true happiness, stop you from experiencing unconditional love, and can hold you back from living the life you’re meant to be living.

I’ve found my soul mate, best friend, and the most perfect person on earth for me.

We’re incredibly lucky. I hope each and every one don’t accept anything but greatness.

Here are 10 (out of so many) simple things to look out for in a relationship:

1. Your partner is your best friend. You’re 110% yourself, you feel free, and enjoy the little things in life together.

2. Your partner is the one you want next to you in your deepest, darkest moments.

3. You’re capable of being away from each other, but neither of you like it one bit.

4. Your partner is your #1 choice for the person you want with you when you splurge on your favorite treat, watch an embarrassing television show, or forget your manners at the dinner table because you’re too exhausted that day.

5. The two of you compromise with each other. You don’t always get your way.

6. You care about his or her needs more than your own.

7. You both know that throughout life you might change and grow, but you’ll always change and grow together. Life is about enjoying the stages with each other.

8. When something happens—terrible, exciting or completely insignificant—he or she is always the first person you want to tell.

9. He or she balances you out, and you do the same. Where one is weaker, the other is stronger.

10. You know that no matter what, he or she will always stand by you and be on your side.

Bonus: You both take a moment, every day, to think about just how lucky you are to have found your most perfect person on this earth ❤

(post from MindBodyGreen)

“What military families have always had to deal with — the impending doom of long-distance relationships — has now become very common. Especially with the increasing popularity of online dating, men and women alike are meeting partners in unexpected places; social media allows us to reconnect with friends and acquaintances from our past in surprising ways. In short, technology has made the world a much smaller place.

With that said, here are 10 tips I’ve learned while on my own long-distance journey. Obviously, there are far more than 10 things to do to cultivate a healthier relationship. But like me, you’ll figure them out on your own journey. So start with these to build a solid foundation …

1. Communicate — clearly and consistently.

I wish I could list this tip 10 times over! For any relationship, romantic or otherwise, communication is vital. In long-distance relationships, where the comfort of physical touch is not available, it’s especially important to prioritize transparent and authentic communication. Get to know one another’s needs and desires, so that resentments and frustrations don’t build over time. Find out what modes of communication work best for you. And use them frequently!

2. Remember that social media is a no-no.

This may sound ironic, especially after I’m telling you to prioritize regular communication. But social media is not an especially mindful or intentional place to have intimate, honest conversations. Even if you met your partner on a social media platform, make a conscious effort not to use it as a tool for sharing and catching up with one another. Communication with your partner should be relatively private and direct.

3. Make plans for the immediate future.

Don’t make your partner guess if and when you will be together again. As soon as you are both able to commit to a time-frame and location, make a plan. Also make sure you are both willing to take turns doing the traveling. Having some kind of consistency and predictability in how you spend time together will help build trust. Plus, it will make the feeling of longing on a day-to-day basis feel much more manageable.

4. Make plans for the distant future, too.

Show your intentions for the relationship by agreeing to plans further down the road. If it’s winter, make some vacation plans for spring or summer. If it’s early on in your relationship, don’t put pressure on this tip. But you can have casual conversations about things you might like to do in the future, and make concrete plans later.

5. Use texting appropriately!

Texting was designed as a means of communicating short, simple messages, not as a means for long and involved conversations. In fact, trying to express complex thoughts over text message can often lead to things being lost in translation, and potentially even unnecessary conflict. So use text messages to communicate quick thoughts like, “I’m thinking of you!” or “I’ll give you a call after work!” Avoid drunk texting for obvious reasons. “Sexting” is a different topic altogether, as it works for some and less so for others. This is one area where you’ll figure out what works for your relationship!

6. Email each other longer trains of thought.

If a topic deserves more thoughtful consideration, email is the way to go. Email about trip ideas, planning visits, or other more involved trains of thought. That said, don’t try and communicate “relationship issues” over email. Save that for the phone, or better yet, in person. In other words, if it’s too long for a text, and not so serious as to warrant an immediate phone conversation, try email.

7. Keep things special with snail mail.

Everyone likes to receive mail that isn’t a bill or an advertisement. Getting a letter or postcard also shows you took the time and made a little more of an effort. Send a cute card, love note or small gift to surprise your partner!

8. Talk daily. Yes, daily!

Long or short telephone conversations will keep you present with your partner. You’ll feel more connected and will also look forward to this part of your day or night. Even schedule “phone dates.” While I prefer not to Skype or use FaceTime, they may work better for you than the phone, so experiment.

9. Develop rituals.

Having things the two of you share when you’re apart will make you feel closer. My partner and I will go out and look at the moon “together” often when we talk. You can make a routine of a “Good Morning” or “Good Night” text. Be creative and see what works for you.

10. Honor your partner’s independence.

Taking the time to recognize your partner’s independence from you and your relationship can sometimes feel painful, especially in the context of a long-distance relationship. But like you, your partner has an entire world that they experience everyday. They have a career, home, friends and family. Honor their independence, and they will honor yours. Not only will you avoid codependency, you will feel more confident and empowered in your own daily life.

All relationships require nurturing. So don’t expect a long-distance one to be any different.”

Valentine’s Day

In 8 years I had 3 relationships but I never celebrate Valentine’s Day (was not something attractive for my partners)…

I always think in the little details you can demonstrate your love and can make your day better and don’t need to be just an special day for say to your lover how much you adore him/her, but, in this special day is extra nice to hear or see how much you mean for that person.

I was giving up to all the romance, to all that details I dream to receive from my other; I was not having that “other” until the beginning of this month…

Today the history is other and I wake up with the man I love, looking me in the webcam (LDR), telling me how much he love me, how beautiful I’m, how lucky he is to be with me and more (like he is doing all the time); I wake up when he was drawing a portrait of us and preparing a special playlist for me with the first song he wrote for me; I wake up with their smile and all the love a woman can feel and with my mind thinking “I have what I was dreaming for so long time, someone loving me just like I’m”.

So for all the dreamers and lovers in this World I just can say: Never give up! Because in some place of this Universe is someone waiting for see your soul and give you the love you dream… Just what was happen to me ❤️

Happy Valentine’s Day!
