وفي الحديث عن أغوار النفس الإنسانية التي لا يسبر لها قرار، وعن الإثم الذي يرتكبه المرء حين يحتقر أولئك الذين يسقطون، بدلاً من أن يهب لنجدتهم وأن يقيلهم من عثرتهم، وعن خطر آرائنا الأخلاقية حين نريد أن نقيس الخير والشر...
"قرية ستيبّانتشيكوفو وسكانها، فيودور ديستويفسكي"
In talking about the unthinkable depths of the human psyche, about the sin that a person commits when he despises those who fall, instead of rushing to their aid and rescue them from their stumbling block, and about the danger of our moral opinions when we want to measure good and evil ...
"Village of Stepanchikovo and its inhabitants, Fyodor Dostoevsky"
„... Und dass ich Essen wirklich liebe. Sobald ich aufgestanden bin, denke ich ans Mittagessen, und nach dem Kaffee will ich wissen, wie ich mich abends ernähren soll. Ich führe zum Beispiel eine Liste von allen Lebensmitteln, die mir in meinem Leben begegnet sind ...“
Ein Buch übers Kochen und Essen. Wie man sich kulinarisch bildet, Sternenküche,
wo das Essen letztendlich immer landet sieht man perfekt dargestellt am Cover: fast schon Lieblingskapitel, bis zu Handys im Restaurant und ein Kapitel lang perfektes Risotto-Rezept.
Liest sich schnell und inspiriert. Ich hab während des Lesens einige Kochbücher bestellt und mindestens 2 Lokale meiner Must-eat-2020-Liste hinzugefügt. #nachschlag#rolandtrettl#schimpfen#loben#lieben#träumen#kochen#quotations#dagmeeliest#leseleben#nussbutter#instafood

"Even in the darkest of times we have the right to expect some illumination..." — Hannah Arendt, Men in Dark Times .
. (throwback to autumn 2019)
To stay awake
To stay alive
To find an escape
Before death arrives
To pretend it's real
Before chaos calls
But it's no big deal
For everything falls
Summon the demons
For the prayers
Coz they're the ones
Underneath the layers
Beneath the skin
Beneath the bones
Where they've been
There, they were born
But don't you see
There is no way

Burn your past, your painful past.
If you had an abusive relationship, were separated/divorced, were molested, went through a painful & scarful surgery, lost any of your organ/body part, lost your unborn baby/family member, went bankrupt or had a near death experience, BURN it. Burn these distressing and hurting memories. Overcome the pain that broke you but keep the strength it gave you. It's high time to let your supposed "relatives" let you down, to allow this judgemental society shackle you in the most unrealistic norms and let your own partner make you count your flaws. It has to END. What happened yesterday is now gone. No need to carry the baggage of the past. There's always a chance to start over from the scratch. Stand proud of what you faced and what you struggled for. Cement your soul to live a life that makes you happy. Yes, the real happy. A warm, tight hug to my heroes who've been into any of such hard phase ever. You are power, you are magic. ✨💞🤗
She is asphyxiated around air, prickled on the flower bed and shackled in an open cage. She has wings but is left to crawl. The smiles in which the tears of others are drowned, are far, farther from her.
When life seems to be pale and faded, we always have an option (yes, always) to colour it from the scratch. It's just that the nightmarish situations/circumstances reach apex to break us, to make us lose hope and drown in despair. But, we can still rise up, open the windows to let the sunshine in and admire the rainbow. Fill colours in your life and in everybody else's. ☺️🌈
Sometimes, we are just being fussy about our surroundings, food, clothes, people and every other thing around, which makes us to put extra labor to perfect them, 'perfect' of our definition. Then what? We ruin it all. It's okay to have a pinch less salt, wear a jacket with shoes that don't match, hair bangs that don't set to the left and dine with a friend who prefers a pizza over pasta, unlike you. Let's try to embrace the things and people the way they are. Enhance them but don't push them to be 'your perfect'. Life will be much easier then, with less disappointments. ☺️
Her answer to “what does it take to pull you out of your fears?”
Fears run in her blood.
Either she continues to make as many cuts as possible in her skin to let those fears ooze out OR she gets wells of love to push those fears out and let love run in her.
Her million struggles each day are veiled by her that one smile, which you'll see the moment you'll reach her. Because you will only see the curve of her lips not the puff of her eyes. She has a bag full of love for her loved ones, who deserve smiles not struggles. 💜
What does the Sun's heat do to our skin?
Tans, tans it permanently.
Likewise, the heat of a man's ego, authority and lust, scars a woman. These scars both mental and physical, may lighten over the years but remain permanent, reminding her of what she was once burnt in. The tanning gets this deeper into her skin, tarring her soul, that she is not living even when she is alive. She is lost, not in the dark but in an attempt to light up the dark.
However, a land of no-man will free a woman of the darkness, scars and shackles. Either no men or only MEN, Gentlemen.
Type "Y" if you agree and "N" if you don't.
Taking frequent salon sittings?
Pushing yourself to shed calories?
Trying to match your blacks?
Keeping hair just the way he/she likes?
WHY? To be "perfect" of his/her definition?
Placing artificial and forced layers on your real self is the biggest damage you can do to yourself. Those who don't have a heart for you, will never fall for you, no matter what and how much you do. None of your efforts will be counted. They will still point out only the flaws even when you are looking the real perfect. Love? No ways. Even if it happens, it's a momentary love.
Cosmic connections happen in the rawest of looks and conditions. The one who's to fall in love with you, will fall even in that no makeup face, half done beard, funny printed pajamas, unsculpted biceps or even in that chubby cheeks & fluffy tummy.
So, better be 'Your Perfect' not their perfect. Improve, enhance and grow for your own self, not for anybody else. Losers can always find a reason to hate and criticize you. Be confident, be YOU. 💝
