beautiful room for rent in my apartment in Gracia, Barcelona

I rent out this room short- or long- term in my light and colourful home in Grácia, Barcelona.
Grácia is an amazingly local, trendy, bustling and artistic area that I fell in love with the moment I first arrived.
It is far away from the tourist crowds; in fact, I get surprised when I see someone here who is obviously a tourist.
There are no chains such as Mc Donalds or Subway; all restaurants, bars, cafés and shops are owned by individuals, who put love, effort and hard work into their businesses.
The area is safe to be in, far from the pickpockets of central Barcelona, and it has a myriad of entertainment to choose from. The famous alternative cinema "Verdi" is just two doors down from my flat and the squares, so typical for Gracia, are filled with people living, playing, socializing and hanging out.
My apartment is located in a 100-year-old building, inhabited by families who have lived here for generations. It is full of charm and incredible details, which, for me, w…

some friendly advice

i have been thinking about advice.
getting advice from friends and people around us, when we need help, when we need suport, when we need reassurance.
friends are such amazing things to have.

only very few people understand me, as i really am, and have seen me make the mistakes i make, according to my individual fears and issues.

i realise that most advice is given from a place in the other person. either a place of convincing themselves of their own choices, or a place of "wanting".
in the end, only those who really know us and love us unconditionally, can give us real advice, and more importantly, only we, our…

finally

i realised how life works.
even though it seems backwards, it is the only way to do it.
even though it seems against my pide, my ego, my will, and my ME, it is the only way that my pride, ego, me, want and desire will get what it wants-
BY GIVING IT OUT- TO LIFE, TO OTHERS- BY BEING THE FIRST ONE TO OFFER IT, AND THEN IT WILL BE OFFERED BACK TO ME
unless i engage in life, life will not engage in me
unless i give love out, love will not be given back to me
it's so simple: we create our own reality!
