Facebook has started to remind ourselves of our memories, things shared in the past. I find them funny and lovely – usually the memories are something happy and positive – good moments, that we have wanted to share. But obviously, there are some other things too, things that other people have posted on your profile, posts about people that you have lost and etc.

Today, Facebook reminded me of a guy, that posted on my profile. It was some game, where you needed to post your first impressions of a person on his or her profile. The post said “Beautiful, but quiet”.

As in, I am beautiful, but not good enough – not entertaining enough – certainly not the light of the party. On the comment section we changed a few words and the guy asked me why I was so quiet and I responded with something like ‘it’s always the quiet ones’. What I was trying to say with that, was that I had more on my mind, than what was seen on the outside. What I was desperately trying to signal, was that I was worth getting to know to, but I wasn’t one of those, who let people close easily.

Well – I hardly knew that guy and remembering that time, I was hanging out with friends, that I am no longer in contact with.

But I still sometimes hear that accusation. Being quiet – there must be something wrong with me? Am I not happy?

And there lays the mistake – thinking, that only people, who are constantly talking, laughing and smiling are happy. People, who make friends easily and socialize around. People who let it be known, let it be heard.

To be honest, I’m not really sure why I started to write about this subject in the first place. I’m not sure, if I know what I really want to say with it. But what I do know, is that there is a certain peace in knowing yourself, knowing your worth and appreciating your life. That peace creates a happy feeling, that doesn’t only show on your lips, but feels all the way in your feet.

Sometimes all you need is to not to talk with people, but to simply know that they are there.

And if it looks like it’s beautiful, but quiet – so be it. I was never about much noise anyway.

What are you thinking about right now?

At the moment, there are so many things on my mind. My mind is racing with ideas and words – and then again it’s staring at out Christmas tree (yes, I was early this year, don’t judge me) and wondering, how lovely all that sparkle and glitter is.  How can a tree in the house make one girl so happy?  And also – I can’t wait for my friends’ glitter party. Yes you read that right. Glitter party. It’s in March though, so settle down, brain. Oh, and I just realized I own the perfect silver glitter heels for that. But zero decent pair of winter boots, which I actually would need. Oh, how hard it is sometimes to be a woman in this world of shoes and bags and adulting.

Obviously – I’m drinking coffee writing this. I don’t always drink coffee this late – or even another cup after the morning coffee, but today I have some exciting things happening later, and I need to be alert. Okay, if you need to know, my sister is in the leading role at the national theater, and I’m bursting from proudness just thinking of it. That, and I’ve never been to a proper theater before. I’m such a peasent. Or not, but somehow attending the theater makes me seem at least 70% more sophisticated.

What else? I have so many posts planned for you. People always ask me: how do you come up with new content? The problem is, that I come up with too much, really. I need to tell you about this amazing highlighter, which works for problematic skin – then I have these lovely luxury products I need talk about and also there’s this one thing about skincare, that deserves it’s own post. There’s also some cool photoshoots and great shots, I need to show you. I feel like so many bloggers say, how they don’t like being in front of the camera. If it’s photos we’re talking about, I love being my own super model.

So I’m pretty much thinking about Christmas, glitter, shoes, coffee, theater, blog posts and love. I’m always thinking about love though. I’m thinking about how it shows on my face, when I’m talking with Risto (he never fails to point out when I’m blushing), how it glows in the dark and warms my feet and how it tastes like rice porridge and cinnamon. Especially when my mom makes it.

On my old blog I often wrote these quick posts about whatever was on my mind. In Finnish the main category was always ‘ajatuksenvirtaa’, which roughly translates to ‘the flow of thoughts’. Every once in a while, I’d like to write these posts on this site as well. So, my question to you is: can we talk about glitter, shoes and love –  all packed together – every once in a while?

Now, quickly: what are you thinking about right now? Just answer spontaneously the first thing, that comes to mind!
