Vintage meets Present in real life

April 21, 2015 | Lifestyle, Retro life | 2 comments

If you’ve read my “About Me” page, you know that I like to blog about the best and positive aspects of the past without forgetting that I am living in the present and ofcourse I have my frequent trips to Homemade Inspiration town. Sounds like a mouth full right? So how does that look like in real life? Have a peek:
Every now and then I take the Oriental Spice part of my blog literally.

Inspiration treat: in-your-face quotes by F. Scott Fitzgerald

January 4, 2014 | Vintage lifestyle | 0 comments

We’re still in the spicy food for thought mood. So here is another (mid)night inspiration treat. I love original in-your-face quotes. Today it’s time to bring you some of the most inspirational and lovely in-your-face quotes of writer F. Scott Fitzgerald. His short novels have been the base of several movies like The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and of course: The Great Gatsby, (I wrote a review of the last Great Gatsby movie).
But, since it’s inspirational quote time, let’s hear it for the masterpieces of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s short stories. When you read them you’ll realise something. One way or another they can still be applied in your life today and in the lives of others 100 years of today.
 

 

 

Today’s special: Spicy quote soup

December 3, 2013 | Inspirational column | 0 comments

Today on the menu: Some homemade spicy quote soup to spice up your day or night.

A chance doesn’t always ring twice.An outspoken “NO” can be a hidden “YES” for something better.Close doors for those who aren’t worth it, open windows for those who make an effort.
About those thousands of people you’ll meet in your life: the ones who seduce your heart and mind are for keeps.

Keep that inner sparkle alive and kicking, even around those who like it dull. You never know when one might see the light.

When the heart starts to wander into the unknown, don’t forget to take the brains with you.

No guts, no glory

…If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it

…If you want to get to C, but you keep running from A to B, nothing will ever change

…If you want to get something of your chest…say  it, because you’ll be sorry if important words are left unsaid

…When people don’t treat your right, stand up for yourself

…Everyone is exchangeable, but not everyone is replaceable. Show the world how unique you are.

Quote Zilla

It’s quote time!
I love reading quotes and making them up myself. So here are a few of my own:
If you don’t fight for what you want, don’t complain for what you’ve lost
Instead of doubts and “What Ifs” consider “Why the hell not”
A short-sighted mind equals an empty life
Too many people are spending too much time, focussing on what they’re missing instead of what they have.
Always remember: If someone REALLY cares, they would REALLY put some effort. If not, you know where you stand. But don’t keep standing…walk away
Anything is possible if someone really REALLY wants it. If not, there will be not one, but thousand excuses…
You are only restricted by the walls you build yourself
Sometimes you’re on a crossroad without a roadmap,
with new unknown opportunities ahead.
Unfortunately most people turn around and go back,
doing the same old thing over and over again and expecting different results…
What really matters is what’s left …
