Illustration of the day (Hope) / Ilustracija dana (Nada)

The place to look for hope is deep inside of us
Nadu treba tražiti u dubini vlastitog bića. U nekim stvarima se ne smijemo oslanjati na druge. Svatko od nas je odgovaran za sebe. Nada ne ovisi o vanjskim okolnostima, ona nas može pratiti i u najmračnijim vremenima i kada smo posve sami. No, moramo nadi otvoriti vrata, moramo je pozvati u svoj život da bismo je mogli naći u srcu i duši. Moramo shvatiti da nada ne mora uvijek imati smisla. Ponekad se osjećaj nade pojavljuje u najapsurdnijim tradegijama, ali možda je to zbog toga što nam je tada najviše potreban.  Logika je ipak samo početak mudrosti, a racionalnim ne bismo nikad trebali gušiti nadu. Nadi je potreban zrak, a taj zrak je tiho povjerenje, slično onom koje postoji između starih prijatelja koji se razumiju bez riječi.

We should look for hope within the dept of our own being. When it comes to certain things, it is better not to lean on others. Each and every one of us is responsible for ourselves. Hope doesn't depend on circumstances and facts of life. We can be accompanied by hope even in the darkest times and the most lonely hours of our life. However, we must invite hope into our lives to be able to find it in our heart and soul. We must accept that hope will not always make sense. Sometimes the feeling of hope appears in the most absurd of tragedies, but that may be because that is when we need it the most.  Logic is only the beginning of wisdom.  Rationalism should never suffocate hope. Hope needs air to breathe and that air is in fact a silent trust, the kind of trust that exists between old friends who can understand one another without uttering a single word.

  10. Hope ... seems a very complicated word, I agree with you that the ideal place to find it is in it ourselves, but our Christian Jew education, at least in Mexico is what prevails, and the mistake is that hope is sought in religion ... I will stop my anti-religion speech. I loved the picture, thanks for sharing.

    1. No religion can claim to have the monopoly on hope, there are pleanty of people in this world who aren't religious at all but are still hopeful and have a developed sense of ethics that some religious people lack...so there are no rules.

  14. Hope is best found in....PIZZA!!! :) Ah but really, dear, nice writing. I stay hopeful, too hopeful. I am constantly imagining situations and settings where the best outcome takes place and surprised when it does not. It is very frustrating because people are so confused and random, but the thinking of these things is so fun I would hate to give it up.

  16. Such a lovely drawing with full of emotions and meaning :)
    There comes a time in our lives that we lose hope for something-- i think we need to stand brave and face the fact that we need to move on with our lives.

    Love this inspirational post

  22. Divno rečeno. Sećam se i sama nekih baš ružnih situacija i perioda. Nada je čudo koje ne očekuješ tada, ali se ipak pojavi.
    Crtež je takođe prelep, sviđa mi se kako si napravila kosu od cvetića :)

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

HOW TO STYLE A METALLIC DRESS FOR TRANSITIONAL WEATHER?

How to style a gold metallic dress for transitional weather? Today I have an outfit proposal that answers that question. I styled my metallic wrap dress with brown boots, a white and brown bag and a tartan blazer. The blazer has some gold treads so I thought it would be a good match for the dress. Besides, I like the idea of pairing a metallic dress with tartan. It looks more interesting that way. I was never one to shy away from patterns. This outfit can be worn both as everyday and night wear. The golden touches make this outfit look more dressed up, and heelless boots make it appropriate for day wear. If you want to glam an outfit like this one, all you need is a pair of high heels. 
Metallic dress looks more tricky than it really is. Styling a metallic dress, for example, isn't that hard. As always look for colours and tones that suit your skin tone. Pair your metallic item with other items you like to wear or go for a full metallic look.  If you don't feel comfortable en…

READING UPDATE: PLAYER PIANO AND FAULT IN OUR STARS (BOOK REVIEWS)

Is anything as lovely as a sunny spring day? I missed reading outdoors, I can tell you that. Sitting on a bench on a nice spring day, with a nice book in one's lap, now that has to be one of the greatest pleasures in life. Speaking of reading, March has been a good reading month so far. As loyal I am to my favourite writers, I also love to discover new ones. I try to read at least one new author every month. This March I read two American authors for the first time: Kurt Vonnegut and John Green. Naturally I heard about them before. Both of them are quite well know, but this March marked my first introduction to these two. They are not the only 'new' writers I tried this month, but more about that some other time. Earlier this month, I read Kurt's Player Piano and Green's Fault in Our Stars. I liked Player Piano much more that Fault in Our Stars but I was kind of expecting that. I'm happy I read both, though. It is just that Kurt's writing is more my cup of…

HOW TO STYLE A BATH ROBE COAT FOR TRANSITIONAL WEATHER?

One of more puzzling trends for Spring must be: the bath robe trend. It exists in many shapes and forms. Just like regular bath robes, these coats are made of different materials and come in different styles. Bath robe coats can give different vibes, from luxurious to relaxed ones. These bath robe coats sometimes come in silk and satin, while at other times they are made of wool or cotton. There was some confusion when the bath robe coat first appeared on the runaway. It was actually a few years ago, this is not the first season that it was introduced. However, this season we're seeing it around quite a bit, with a lot of celebrities choosing to wear this trend.

What to make of this trend? Will the bath robe trend become the new trench coat? It is hard to say. Nevertheless, it is easy to see the appeal of the bath robe trend. Coats cuts in this style are typically very cozy and comfy. If they are made from warmer materials, they make for perfect transitional pieces.  If you'r…
