My Top 3 Helpful Quotes by Paulo Coelho

I am a big fan of Paulo Coelho. His books have changed the way I look at the relationships, life experiences and achieving my dreams. These 3 quotes are not as well know as "When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it." from "The Alchemist" but I find them equaly helpful.

1. "Kiss slowly, laugh insanely, live truly and forgive quickly" Guide yourself with these four simple rules and your world will become a better place.

2. "What other people think of you is none of your business." Another rule of happy life. Stop taking care about what's going on in someone else's mind. Instead of that focus on how you think about others and if it's not nice, please please please change that. Not for them, for you.

3. "In true love you want your partner to be happy. In false love you want your partner." This is a really hard lesson to learn (personal experience). But don't you want the best for the person you love?

Bonus quote: I really had to put this one here. It's my favourite part of his book "The Zahir" and I personally think that these are the best words ever written on love.

"In the hospital, love had spoken to me: “I am everything and I am nothing. I am the wind, and I cannot enter windows and doors that are shut.”
And I said to love: “But I am open to you.”
And love said to me: “The wind is made of air. There is air inside your house, but everything is shut up. The furniture will get covered in dust, the damp will ruin the paintings and stain the walls. You will continue to breathe, you will know a small part of me, but I am not a part, I am Everything, and you will never know that.” 

What is your favourite thing written by Paulo Coleho? Let me know.
Have a great sunday

New beginning

I decided to remove all my previous posts on this blog. Why? To be honest, this place was a mess, that even I didn’t enjoy reading.

I made myself a promise to create a blog, that would fulfil me as well as my readers.
What changes have I decided to do?

1. I switched the language of this blog from Slovakian to English. Isn’t writing one of the best ways how improve your language skills?

2. I want to write about things that intrest me, but from my point of view and I promise (to myself) I will try to provide a different angle on the topics to my readers.

I want "a girl like me" to be a blog about (hm, let me think about how to verbalize it properly)...  different ways you can bring happiness and lightness to your life as well as sharing my little pleasures with you.

This time, it will be blog for real.
I promise.
