friends

Psyche recognizes all that was, all that is and all that will be.

We meet with thousand of people in this life. Few only stay in our heart forever. Even when they cross to the other state of living that with fear we perceive and call it death.

So let me tell you my story and how I met Dimitris.

We met in my most ever troubled year. When I was 24. The company I used to work had promised to pay my MBA, instead they never paid me even some salaries. Horrible management.  With a prospect contract with the EC, I had to regroup. Apogee was too young, and Markos, my best friend, was serving the country (seriously? lol). I was at the lodge for the 1st time. April the 10th. He was sitting opposite to me. He did not smile. He was actually trying to avoid me. He did smoke his pipe (typical), caring for all he did or not hear. By insisting, I started talking to him. Trivial staff, for the most, about how to improve oneself and so on. And then I told him, could we meet some other day? He said, why don’t you come by my house this Saturday to meet also my family. Crazy right? I remember still the colors, smell, warm sun at the living room. His wife Mareanna, wanted to bring us coffee and of course some sweets. F* even now I can smell the smoke from his pipe. Ermioni was a little kid. Months old! She was definitely making her point even at that time of her age! Since then, we’ve been working with each other, non-stop, for one and only goal: perfect ourselves, inside.

The funniest thing? I even got split from a girl that I was dating, cause she got jealous of how much I love him as a person for who he is and for believing in myself and my potential.

You know. Immortality exists. As long as one keeps you in their heart. And mine is boiling.

I wish you all, to find your psyche friend. And make sure that by then you know how to play good backgammon. They’ll upset you immensely!

Relationship Guide

Life. Is full of surprises. Always. We come in a world as a little child and we get to know of our parents and closed ones, we meet new friends, boyfriends or girlfriends. We grow and create a legacy.

In this life path, we meet people that we share our heart, mind and body. We share our breath for moments that can never be forgotten. Moments that define us and determine how should we behave with our next relationship. At the beginning, we are empty of experiences and only have impressions from what we observe our parents or grandparents appear to treat each other in front of us. Then we form an understanding based on our individual experiences, which is changing accordingly if these are positive or negative.

It is inevitable. At a certain moment in our life, we will meet a person that is our soul-partner and we would wish to stay with that person forever. The issue is that we don’t know how to behave or to expect from that person, and the worst is that we assume that, that person should know us already.

Well, that won’t work… but here is a quick 5 step to succeed

Be honest

Nope. You don’t like ALL they say or ALL they do and vice versa. It’s simply impossible. It’s great sharing and respecting each other and their wishes, but if you do not like something you create a black hole, fed maybe in a daily basis. That will drive you both apart. You will start disliking yourself and you will explode at a certain point. It’s better fighting now and resolving any issue than once and for good…

Make them feel wanted

Especially after 11 months of a relationship, we all getting less enthusiastic. Not because we don’t want our partner. On the contrary. We do. But we have learned to be liked and conquered by the other person. That’s how we get confirmation! In addition, approaching the 1 year, it’s all nice but deep inside we do feel that it’s getting serious. Are we sure about that commitment? Should we stay together? Should we have kids? Should I meet more before settling? And all questions like that. Well, let me tell you. Not experiencing your partner to the fullest, you lose! Keep your love steaming hot!

Make time for your partner

I understand. You work a lot, and you must use a laptop, a smartphone, and a tablet at the same time. Well, make some space for your partner. Allocate some good hours every day and a lot during the weekend to meet, have fun, walk around, travel, experience each other. If you don’t like somebody, don’t make excuses on how much work you do have. Be honest in-front of yourself, at least, and move on. When was the last time you spontaneously booked a trip for your partner? You’ll just need keyboard and mouse. As destinations I recommend: Rome, Milano, Barcelona, Stockholm, London, Granada, Tenerife, Maastricht, Lisbon, Prague. So simple!

Fight!

When was the last time you did fight with your partner like a kid? Realize that you won’t split up! You will be having actually fun! Actually, you are both right. And that’s the fun of it! Little arguments should be welcomed and feeling threatened that the other person will run away or hurt their feelings. We are together with a person not fix all their problems but to face them all together! There are times that their problem is our habits or behaviors. Just because they don’t know us yet as well as they will in some years, doesn’t mean we won’t get along already!

Hold hands

Old fashioned? Cheesy? Kids stuff? Call it what you want. The very first moment you touch their hand you’ll never forget it. So why shouldn’t you repeat it all the time? It’s not a part of a show. It’s how you tell your other half “you complete me” and “I’ll be next to you”.  Can it get better than this?

 

This universe is established in duality and nothing functions out of this concept. The beauty of life is to understand both sides of ourselves… both Sun and Moon and experience through the our other significant. Everything is important in this path … everything!

 

Chocolates or Flowers

I am addicted to chocolate… who isn’t right?

In life, there are many kind of pleasures. Name them… But one of them occupies a special place in our minds. Chocolate! Milk, vanilla, ginger, black, coffee, lemon, cherry, strawberry… whatever combination you can imagine! Recently, I ate duck with chocolate sauce and balsamico, and it was delicious. And then, you can also drink it, with 40% milk and 20% chocolate and, the rest, 40% water… the perfect combination. So, imagine that now, you are in a snow shelter, and it is cold outside. I bet that the only thing that would make you feel nice… is a cup of hot chocolate.

Since Valentine’s is around the corner, I would like to share with you an eternal love story… that of the Sun & the Moon.

Sun & Moon

S: It is half day since I have not seen you…

M: Hours seemed like an eternity and beyond…

S: I will touch you again with my breath, just to see you smile at me one more moment…

M: I will come after you to feel your breath…

S: I am the king… the ruler… I am everything… and yet nothing without you…

M: I am forgotten… I am worshiped… just because of you…

S: Life is so empty without you…

M: There is no life without you…

S: Who am I without you….?

M: Who am I without you….?

S: Never we were one… never we will.

M: You are I and I am you… always apart… always together

This universe is established in duality… nothing functions out of this concept… The beauty of life is to understand both sides of ourselves… but still incomplete without our special one. both Sun and Moon… everything is important in this chase … everything!

& some love songs… with extra flavor!
