Never Expect A Lot From People


Lower your expectations when it come sto people. Nowadays, has become really hard to find a good and honest friend. Everyone is looking for some sort of interest and people will do almost anything to achieve their personal goals in life. ¸The battle for life has become so ruthless and sometimes it scares me.

We all deserve to live a life in a way in which we want that. We can not force anyone to live his/her life according to our expectations, but we should lower our expectations definitely. People nowadays have lost their moral values. The biggest disappointments in our lives are often the result of excessive expectations. This is especially true when it comes to our relationships and interactions with others.

Do not let the opinions of others influence you. In fact, the more you accept your own decisions in life, the less you will need the approval of others. Never forget that you have value. Spend time with the ones that value you. No matter how good you are with people, there will always be one negative person who will criticize you. Smile, ignore  and move on.

In this crazy world the hardest battle is with yourself. Things that make you different are the things that make you and real people will love you for it. Pay attention and observe people as they are, not because of what you want them to be. Every human being is extraordinary and beautiful, it just takes a couple of patient eyes to see it. The more you get to know someone, the more you will be able to look at their depth and beauty of their true self.

Try to accept people as they are and never expect a lot from them. because, in the end you will feel disappointed, lost and alone.

The Happiest Day In My Life!


One year ago, on April 29th 2015, at 9:17 a.m. , I gave birth to a wonderful girl. I can not say she was little, since she was a bigger baby. She was 54cm and 4,070 kilos. The doctor who helped me with the labor was in awe when he saw her. My stomach was not that big and he thought that the baby was much smaller. The labor was hard and I was in terrible pain for 12 hours. But, eventually I managed to bring a new life to this world. How did I feel when I saw her? Honestly, I was so scared. I got this new responsibility and I had no idea how will I manage to be a mom. No one teaches you to be a mother. I was speechless and my head was full with various questions with no answers.

I got home, and the guests were already there expecting us. I needed rest. My mother was with me in the first seven days and she taught me how to change a diaper, how to calm her down and all other things that were helpful. So, time passed, day by day. I was lucky with her since she was quite the good baby. She slept pretty good. She was not sick and she grew so fast.

Today is her first birthday, and when I take a look at those photos when she was little, I realize that I do not remember that period. The time went so fast. Too fast actually. I am a mother for a year now and I actually managed in that role. She is now a big girl who is very intelligent and a bit stubborn. She is almost walking and has four teeth. A friend of mine yesterday told me that his daughter is gonna go to schol this year. I was shocked. I remember when she was born. Kids grow so fast, that is inevitable truth.

God bless them all, let all the children in the world be happy and healthy. Happy birthday, my little big girl. Mommy, loves you so much!

Do You Know How You Are Destroying Your Kidneys?


Kidneys are important for the healthy functioning of the body because they regulate blood pressure, water and electrolyte balance and eliminate harmful substances from the body. Keep in mind that the damage to the kidneys often can not be repaired. Take care of your health and especially kidneys. We need them.

Prolonged use of analgesics – The use of painkillers for long time, especially in a large amount, adversely affects the structure of the kidney tissue. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs used to treat pain and fever, are the main cause of it. Between one and three percent of new cases of chronic kidney failure a year may be caused by abuse of painkillers.

Smoking – We all know the impact of smoking on lungs and the heart, but did you know that smoking has great impact on kidneys as well. Diseases that affect the work of the kidneys, such as diabetes and high blood pressure, also worsens the tendency to cigarettes, and smokers often need dialysis or a kidney transplant.

Food rich in sugar – Consuming too much sugar leads to health problems such as diabetes and obesity – which are risk factors for kidney disease. Reduce the intake of sugar in the body and you will reduce the risk of these diseases. Less refined sugar means fewer calories, chemicals and salt, and your waist and kidneys will thank you!

Too much salt – A lot of salty foods can raise blood pressure. High pressure damages the kidneys, however, may eventually lead to kidney failure. So, less salt food will prevent kidney failure.

Too much alcohol – The habit of drinking too much alcohol leads to kidney damage. Alcohol contains toxins that can be harmful to the kidneys. So slow down when you are drinking alcohol.

As you can see, all of these things are not good for our kidneys, and our health in general. Without health we are lost. We must preserve our health in order to function normally in life.

Health Benefits of Green Onions


I love spring because of the vegetables. I love vegetables more than fruit, and I enjoy in tomatoes, paprikas, spring onions, salad, lettuce, cucumbers and almost all vegetables. In spring everything is waking up and vegetables are being grown. I love to go to the market and buy all sorts of vegetables. One of my favorites is spring onion and it comes among the first ones.

The more fruits and vegetables you eat, you will have less chance of developing some of the more serious health problems. The reason for this is that fruits and vegetables contain many vital nutrients that are essential for the proper functioning of the whole organism. Spring onions contain a wide range of compounds that improve health – vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals.

Research shows that spring onions are rich source of phytochemicals, especially compounds of flavonoids, such as quercetin and anthocyanins. This particular phytochemical compounds actually are natural chemicals that plants contain, and they can enhance immunity. In addition, research suggests that flavonoids may also help prevent cancer by eliminating xanthine oxidase, an enzyme that produces free radicals. Food rich with ingredients that have high levels of antioxidants, especially fruits and vegetables is associated with a reduced risk of heart disease. Vitamin C may also help lower high blood pressure which, in turn, can reduce the risk of heart disease.

Spring onions will also help people who have problems with blood sugar. Besides being tasty and irreplaceable in many dishes, spring onions is important for health. The amount of water in spring onions can be up to 90 percent. This means that there are fewer carbohydrates and you can eat spring onions like an apple.

It is a good source of thiamin, vitamin B6, folic acid, magnesium, phosphorus and zinc. It is an excellent source of dietary fiber, vitamins A, C, K, riboflavin, calcium, iron, potassium and manganese.

People With Two Faces


Everything in the world has its own black and white side, day and night. Thus the human personality also has two opposites. The human psyche is an extremely complicated matter. Today’s society causes a variety of personality disorders and wrong upbringing cause that children become materialistic and egoistic. Evil people are always being showed as good, and good people are being showed as evil because they are honest and naive.

The man is at its core a survivor. It is in our genetic code to give the best from ourselves in order to succeed more. We do not have all the same beliefs, we do not all believe in heaven and hell. Some people think that they are here because of some weird events, and they are using their skills in order for them to feel good and to have the best time in their lives.

I am not judging anyone. I am just saying that we are all so different. Unfortunately, people do not change. One person is one person who has become like that due to various factors – upbringing, education, social environment and many, many other factors.

Basically, two-faced people do not have enough faith in themselves. That is why they periodically change their appearance to accommodate the varying need. How to deal with such people? They can not be changed, head-to-head conflict will not result in anything good nor you’ll get support because there will always be people who’re not aware of the duplicity of that person, and that’s enough for failure. I would limit that relationship to ”just business”, trying not to get excessively close to that person.

We could observe the following differences:
– One thing are people who are completely changing their moods and reactions in certain circumstances.
– Others are hypocritical people.
– Third are people who can observe and evaluate the opposing points of view.

Do You Believe In Love At First Sight?

I am in some love mood today. I have no idea why. But, let us spread some love. Here in my country is a wonderful day and I believe that is the reason why I feel so happy and in love mood. Love is an emotion that moves us all. Love is something we all have experienced, had experienced and will experience in some part of our life. There are some lucky people who are still feeling deep love towards their man/woman – person who stole their heart.

But, what about love at first sight? Is there such a thing? I believe that it happens to some rare people, but the question is how long does it last? According to some studies women who fall in love quick, also quickly lose that feeling. But, men on the other hand sty in love for a longer time. Why? because men fall in love with women appearance and outside looks. And women are looking for something deeper, something inside a man.

Many people who have experienced love at first sight think that this is something magical, and not something that science studies. No matter how love begins, slowly or rapidly, about its development should be taken care of. The combination of intuition, hormones, chemical reactions and timing may be responsible for it, but love will always remain one of the spheres of life in which you can not be one hundred percent sure of anything.

I think that love is individual thing and we all have different reactions to certain things. Love is a complex emotion and no scientist in this world can unlcok its secrets. For a relationship is not necessary just love, but mutual respect, understanding and compassion.

So, what about you, do you believe in love at first sight? Have you ever experienced something like that?




Great Love Stories – Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner

I have decided to write a bit about love. I am in love mood and I would love to share some of the biggest love stories in the history. The first one will be the one about Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner. We have all heard about them, but how much do we actually know about them. I am from younger generation, so I do not remember them as well as my mom does.

Frank Sinatra, who was already a legend in Hollywood, the master of love songs and dream of every young girl, was on top of more than a decade, when in his life appeared attractive and seductive, incredibly beautiful and sexy Ava Gardner. Fans were sad when they heard the news that Frank left his wife Nancy Sinatra after twelve years of marriage, for the alleged “home wrecker”. But, it was already too late for him. He was caught in her web. She seduced him like a real professional.

In 1951, they married soon after Frank divorced Nancy. Everyone was against that marriage, but they did not care about all the critics. they were in love and that was stronger than anything. They had one very passionate and fiery relationship. They were both too much jealous. They were both temperamental, but they would soon forget about all of their disagreements and quarrels.

All ever Ava wanted is for Frank to be happy. In the end she invited some powerful connections to secure his role in “From here to eternity”, which earned him an Oscar. But this significant achievement will mean the end of their relationship. Often they were on opposite sides of the continent or even the world.  In the end, even Cupid’s arrow could not save this intensely passionate marriage from falling apart, and in 1957 the couple divorced.
