Is it a shame or not?

Bad cat you should be punished! But, howww?

I did my laundry the other day and I remembered this cat situation while I was collecting my dry laundry. Yes, I am a single woman in her 30s, but unfortunately, only my cat has torn my underwear until now.

Maybe you know that Turkey is a middle eastern country, although it is not exactly, the country, in general, is conservative. Of course, this may vary depending on the family you belong to and the region you live in.

Virginity in marriage is a very important issue. …


What would happen?

Yeah, I’m neither rich nor poor, I have an average life, but sometimes I can’t help but wonder what would happen if I had more. Unfortunately, I’m not lucky enough to win the lottery or I haven’t any super-rich relatives even in my dreams, etc. But what if I was rich? Just one day!

If I had unlimited money, I’d buy myself a farmhouse first. If possible, have a helicopter with horses or something in it. I would definitely have a Hans&Sons piano. I would buy a mansion near the Bosphorus in Istanbul. …


Later I became a turtle, not a butterfly!

Once upon a time, every soul was choosing the animal they wanted to be, and I chose to be the caterpillar. Life is a change and also a transformation and I wanted to be a part of it and transform with it. My request was accepted!

I was sent into the world as a spirit and became a caterpillar. When I was about to become a butterfly, surprisingly I became a turtle, and for many years I saw thousands of souls that became butterflies when they were caterpillars and then I witnessed their deaths.

Sometimes at night time when I…


This has become my routine now :)

I can think better while walking, which allows me to make better decisions. I don’t listen to music while walking, I just walk, so I can focus my thoughts better.

I am someone who wakes up early in the morning. When I wake up late, I feel like I wasted my day. Morning walks help me a lot in planning my day, so I feel fresher.

I’m walking in a park near my house and it was raining today and I was…

Turkish coffee is very simple to prepare and I have seen it sold in many markets during my European trips. You can try it at home by ordering online!

First, you need a teaspoon, a coffee pot, sugar, water, a coffee cup, heater, Turkish coffee

  1. Put a teaspoon of coffee in your coffee pot and add sugar (the amount of sugar depends on you, you may not put it at all)
  2. Fill your cup with a small amount of water leftover and put it in your coffee pot and heat the mix
  3. When you see the bubbles, take your coffee…


Never give up!

In this life, too many of my rights have been taken away. Life isn’t fair, especially for me for a long time. But in the process, we must be able to dance without losing the rhythm, many times by ourselves and in the deep darkness, just for ourselves.

“Dance, when you’re broken open. Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you’re perfectly free.”― Rumi

Everything can happen in life. The important thing is to find our way even in all these dark times. To be our own…


Life is a simple and also complex journey.

What do you think is the hardest thing in the world? Solving a tough math question or solving problems with your partner? Or afford a lux life? I think none of them is the correct answer. I think the hardest thing in the world is to be yourself!

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”― Oscar Wilde

Many people have forgotten how to be themselves. Frankly, what I see is just a flock of sheep sometimes. Media and advertisements play a big role in this. …


Sometimes the cheapest tools make the best profit.

Everyone is more conscious now and after the best investment. Many people have easy access to the internet and therefore access information more easily. But what is the best investment?

I think the answer to this is both very simple and very complicated: TIME!

“Time is the most valuable coin in your life. You and you alone will determine how that coin will be spent. Be careful that you do not let other people spend it for you.”
Carl Sandburg

First of all, we must be able to manage time and invest time. …
