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.

  17. 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

  23. 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 RED CLOTHING ITEMS FOR WINTER?

A few posts ago (yes, bloggers calculate time in post activity), I wrote about red accessories for winter but I also wanted to write about red clothing items you can wear this time of year. In fact, I was planning to write a big post about wearing red in winter but I realized that I need to split it in two because it was too long. Apparently, I have a lot to say about why wearing red in winter is a good idea. So, today I'll basically post the part two of my red in winter fashion musings. Red is a bold, energetic and dramatic colour. If you ask me, wearing red is a great way to invoke good luck in our new year. You can pair red with neutral colours to tone it down or with vibrant ones to make your outfits even more noticeable. Lunar Year festivities are a perfect time to embrace the red clothing items. Moreover, Valentine's Day is not too far off either. If you're looking for some winter red outfit inspiration, you have come to the right place. HOW TO WEAR RED IN WINTER?   My…

10 STYLE LESSONS LEARNED FROM MALENA/ MONICA BELLUCCI

With summer being in full spring, I caught myself thinking about iconic summer outfits. Do you know what came to my mind? Costumes/outfits worn by Monica Belluci when she played Malena Scordia in an iconic Italian movie set on Sicily.  The costumes for that movie were designed by an acclaimed Italian costume designer Maurizio Millenotti and he outdone himself! Seeing that Malena is a historical movie, Maurizio choose quite timeless outfits and cuts that will ever go out of style. That fact makes Malena movie the perfect place to look for inspiration! Moreover, I feel that Monica Belluci's personal style is quite similar to Malena's (i.e. to the style of the character she is playing). There is definitely a Mediterranean lady feel about Malena/Monica Bellucci. What says summer better than Mediterranean and Sicily? Today we'll analyze Malena's style and see what we can learn from her. There is much to learn! Having analyzed looks that Monica wore in iconic Malena film, I…

VISIT MALA STINIVA BAY ON ISLAND HVAR WITH ME (PART 1)

Today I'm taking you to Mala Stiniva Bay on island Hvar. I might talk for a living, but before this beauty I was left speechless and it's not even the first time I have visited this place. If you remember, I blogged about Mala Stiniva Bay back in 2018 and I originally visited it a few years prior to that rather lengthily travel post. My husband loved this place, so I promised to take him back some time. We went there last week. After I finished working, I put on a pair of white sneakers and drove there. When we got there, we just stared at this bay because it is so overwhelming beautiful. Now, that says something coming from someone who spent most of their summers on this island, mind you. Even for high standards set by island Hvar, this bay is enchanting. Most bays on island Hvar are absolutely gorgeous, but somehow this one stole my heart.  Mala Stiniva Bay belongs to Poljica village on island Hvar (not to be confused with a group of villages located on Dalmatian coast that…
