Sunsets are like…

Sunsets are like unique people, who we can meet only once in the life time. Even if you would spend every evening of your life watching the sun hiding after the horizon, you would not be able to see two of them looking exactly the same. Because magic of the moment affects us in a very different way, speak to our imagination, show us illusion created by light but also by our emotions.

Sunsets are like scenery made by the great artist, to give us a moment of contemplation and chance to think about immaterial things influencing on us and our surroundings.

Sunsets are like memories of the first sweet kiss…

RULE (3)

Respect! Yourself


Simple word, used dozen of times every day. Do we really know what does it mean?

According to the dictionary it is “a feeling or understanding that someone or something is important, serious, etc., and should be treated in an appropriate way”*
Now I’m asking you – Do you respect yourself?

Yes, you are reading correctly, there is no mistake in my question – Do you respect yourself?

RULE (2)

Love! Others

A week ago I advised to love yourself (Text can be found HERE) and I’m not gonna change my mind about it. But we can not go too far with this love as well. There has to be a place, in our hearts, for love to other people.

I’m not talking only about mother or father – those two persons who gave you life, raise you up and taught you everything you know now about life. This love is so natural, that it should not even to be discussed.

I’m not meaning also your sister or brother. They are the part of your closest family. Even if you wanna kill them sometimes, at the end always, I mean ALWAYS everything gonna be fine between you too.

I do not think also grandparents who tried to spoil you and till now most probably they see the best person in the entire world, when they look at you.

I’m not mentioning husband or wife, boyfriend or girlfriend of yours…

They all deserve your love.

They always find time for you, give your attention always when it is required. They are more than worth your love!

But if you will look really carefully, you will notice other people who need your love, and who loves you even from far. Sometimes they do not even ask for your attention, they observe you from far, while they are showing you every day, without a word, their feelings.

Hippies always say “Make love, not war” and even if they mean a little bit different way of “loving”… you should keep these words in your heart.

Love can build much better than hate, fear or blackmail. Start to appreciate what people can give you, and send same love messages into the world.

Brand new

Brand new – me!

Summer time can give you lots of topics to write about, or non. Well, I got unfortunately – non, and I’m going to treat it as a challenge!

As you can see (if you have visited my blog before) I made a few changes, both visual and content. Some categories were removed, some changed place, and also you can find few new one. Hope it will make my website more user friendly.

I’m going to keep up with Motivation Monday, in a brand new form of rules to reach your own happiness (First two posts can be found HERE and HERE), I will not give up on travel topics (including cooking from places all around the world) and self-publisher tips, but I’m gonna add my own reviews of books, tv series and movies. Nope, it does not mean it will be connected with fresh – new coming titles (ok, maybe a little), but also with the things which came into my hands in the last days – old one too.

There will be more content from my point of view, less boring facts, which can be found in every book.

So I hope you will enjoy new, refreshed idea of Monika’s Journey. Com!


Love! Yourself!


In the modern world balance between us and the rest of the world is interrupted. Every day I can see thousands of people sacrificing their own good, comfort and happiness for others.

Wives working hard at home after a whole day at the office or other “paid work”… People forgetting their dreams to please beloved… Friends giving up on theirselfs just to fix into the reality of the group…

Where there is no happiness in you, you can not give happiness to others! When the dreams and passions pass away, frustration can be born.

“Mistakes are proof that you are trying.”

Here in Europe the day is almost over… Sit for a second and think about the last few hours you spend at work/school/with friends… Think about good and bad things happened today.

You made some mistake? It happens to all of us, there is nothing to blame yourself about. We are all just the humans! Only those who try to do something can make mistakes. Those who are afraid they do not even try to do something…

Just draw your own conclusions from your mistakes and learn from them, but do not spend your precious time on crying over it… as somebody wise said: “Mistakes are proof that you are trying”!
