Hello, dear people! I have to recognize that I missed you and the WordPress Platform. It’s been such a crazy week that I did not even had time for myself or the blog. How have you been?
I am not finding excuses for not showing up, but my work load got each day more and more heavy and I wanted to get things done. In all this rush I kind of struggled between work and family, wanting to be there in the same time. But you can’t have it all, right?
In the meantime I managed to get a little bit ill, because of the stress and many working hours, not sleeping more than 5-6 hours per night and so on. A flu might follow me on the way, but I believe it’s the fatigue accumulated along the week that is weakening my body.
Yesterday I had to rush to my grandmother feast, as it has been 40 days already since she passed away. It was kind of a roller coaster with emotions and tears, cold and hurrying.
Even if it is Sunday, I am still at work this end of the week. I can’t wait for the prolonged weekend that will arrive in hope that I will get better rest and maybe click a quick refresh button. But I know that it is only Sunday, and tomorrow will bring a new week with new challenges and storms to pass.
In the less time that I have for me while running to places I get doped with sad and depressive songs. But I just don’t feel like listening to joyful music, I don’t have the energy and spirit.
At the end of the day my head is killing me, my all body is aching and I just wish to go home. I am only praying to God to provide me with enough strength so that I can pass these harsh days and wait for the best to come.
Today is Monday, again. And what a great opportunity to start a new journey and reinvent yourself?
“Renew, release, let go. Yesterday’s gone. There’s nothing you can do to bring it back. You can’t ‘should’ve’ done something. You can only do something. Renew yourself. Release that attachment. Today is a new day!“ – Steve Maraboli
Makeup brushes ensure flawless and seamless makeup, whether we are talking about a natural or an occasion, intense makeup.
It is extremely important to maintain a certain hygiene of the brushes to create a quality makeup and to avoid the appearance of pimples or other affections of the skin of the face.
Makeup brushes collect sebum, dust, dead cells and residues of cosmetics in their strands.
Make-up brushes should be cleaned at least every two weeks. A brush loaded with product and used daily without being cleansed aggravates the skin and prevents the uniform application of the cosmetic product on the skin.
To see exactly what a dirty brush contains, samples were taken in the laboratory. Staphylococcus Aureus was one of the microorganisms identified in the sample.
Normally, makeup brushes should be used for 4-5 months, but it is highly dependent on the strands resistance of the brushes used. When strands fall from the brush and they have an unpleasant odor, it is clear that we must think about purchasing other brushes.
How often do you clean your makeup brushes and sponge?

After all, the way that we love is not perfect. We love things to such an incomprehensible depth that these things become worn in. Wouldn’t the most beautiful thing in the world be a heart that has been through all of the wear and tear, as worn in as your favorite sweater that both keeps you warm and grants you a smile in return? That’s the kind of heart that I want. Bruises make for beautiful colors after all. “ Elizabeth Brooks
You know that moment when the week has just started, it’s Wednesday and your powers seem to fail? When you sleep too less but you feel that yesterday you slept even less than today?
When you wonder your powers and think if what you have done is enough and if you are doing a great job or just hanging around the world by just another thread?
When people may start to wonder how much you can take but you keep on moving and working, just giving your best in order to succeed?
Your powers may be low, your mind may be crowded with gray thoughts, your body is weak and you might feel that you are going to fail. But you are not, dear soul.
Always remember that you are strong, tenacious and powerful. You can do whatever you dream of and if you work strong enough today, tomorrow you might as well have it.
You are young, amazing and beautiful. Disregard the mistakes and the defects, they are just details in a world full of people with flaws. You are the best version of yourself and nobody can do a better job than you.
So, today at the beginning of the journey, pat yourself on the shoulder and remember that you are doing great, just hang in there, dear. Be kind and understanding with you because nobody is going to do it for you.
Work on being in love with the person in the mirror who has been through so much but is till standing. Sometimes the noise of life can be just too much. If you need to escape, love yourself enough to know when you need a real time out.

Even if it is only Wednesday I feel tired. The workload from the job, home duties and other tasks got me exhausted and I feel like all my powers are gone. That until tomorrow, when I will have to start it all over again, running and hasting in the life cycle.
Today’s post is going to be about being tired, more exactly quotes and sayings about being tired. I hope you will enjoy the post!
“You feel fine, and then, when your body can’t keep fighting, you don’t.” ― Nicholas Sparks, A Walk to Remember
“Take a shower. Wash away every trace of yesterday. Of smells. Of weary skin. Get dressed. Make coffee, windows open, the sun shining through. Hold the cup with two hands and notice that you feel the feeling of warmth. You still feel warmth. Now sit down and get to work. Keep your mind sharp, head on, eyes on the page and if small thoughts of worries fight their ways into your consciousness: threw them off like fires in the night and keep your eyes on the track. Nothing but the task in front of you. Get off your chair in the middle of the day. Put on your shoes and take a long walk on open streets around people. Notice how they’re all walking, in a hurry, or slowly. Smiling, laughing, or eyes straight forward, hurried to get to wherever they’re going. And notice how you’re just one of them. Not more, not less. Find comfort in the way you’re just one in the crowd. Your worries: no more, no less.
Go back home. Take the long way just to not pass the liquor store. Don’t buy the cigarettes. Go straight home. Take off your shoes. Wash your hands. Your face. Notice the silence. Notice your heart. It’s still beating. Still fighting. Now get back to work. Work with your mind sharp and eyes focused and if any thoughts of worries or hate or sadness creep their ways around, shake them off like a runner in the night for you own your mind, and you need to tame it. Focus. Keep it sharp on track, nothing but the task in front of you. Work until your eyes are tired and head is heavy, and keep working even after that.
Then take a shower, wash off the day. Drink a glass of water. Make the room dark. Lie down and close your eyes. Notice the silence. Notice your heart. Still beating. Still fighting. You made it, after all. You made it, another day. And you can make it one more. You’re doing just fine. You’re doing fine.
I’m doing just fine.” ― Charlotte Eriksson, You’re Doing Just Fine
