A Mixture of Topics including a Concert at Karmi Church


By Peri Sualp…..

This week I happened to have many topics that I wanted to write about therefore I have decided to write a little a bit about everything! 

TRUST by definition

Trusting someone means that you think they are reliable, you have confidence in them and you feel safe with them physically and emotionally. Trust is something that two people in a relationship can build together. Trust is both an emotional and logical act. Peri Sualp window 2Emotionally, it is where you expose your vulnerabilities to people, but believing they will not take advantage of your openness. We feel trust. Emotions associated with trust includes love, agreement, relaxation and comfort. 

When you trust someone you rely on them that they will not let you down. They will be on your side as much as they can. But trust doesn’t mean obedience. The most important thing for being a reliable person is to be yourself. Honesty is one of the most important aspects of trust in a relationship. 

It takes a lot of time to trust a person. You need to spend long hours and you need to interact with him/her on many occasions. Sometimes it requires trial and error. Everyone can make mistakes but in the end if there is honesty and goodwill and mutual understanding everything can be talked through. And most importantly if there is love and respect accompanied by an open heart then there is no reason to not to trust a person. 

I hope all the people in your journey of life are trustworthy. 

Cracked Finger

You had better be careful with your body parts otherwise your life can turn to a misery!

Two weeks ago I  accidentally cracked my right index finger at school. Not only did it hurt a lot but also it ruined my life for a while as I wasn’t able to use it. I couldn’t write properly, I couldn’t go to my dance and piano lessons. Having a bath and washing my hands was really difficult.

This week it feels a lot better so the doctor took out the brace/splint. Now I can write more easily.

Bad weather

The last couple of days has seen disastrous weather in Cyprus. Thunderstorms accompanied by terrible rain made everyone’s life impossible. Due to terrible weather conditions, roads closed down, fatal accidents happened, houses and shops flooded, lots of pre-planned events were cancelled.

The Ministry of Education officially closed the schools for two days.

This may seem something like fun for kids but unfortunately the reason for closing the schools is not for a good cause it was necessary for people’s safety. I wish for a better infrastructure for Cyprus so that none of these unfortunate events happen again.

Karmi Concert  

I will be performing for the benefit of The Karmi Church Fund together with the wonderful mezzo soprano, Katie Economidou and amazing accompanist and performer, Zara Barkhoudarian once again.

Last year our concert was a great success so we decided to repeat it again this year. For a change, this year, Zara’s award winning 11 year old student, Edgar Evoyan will be performing with us.

Please SAVE THE DATE and join us on 16th December Sunday at 16:00 at Karmi Church for joyful Christmas songs and more.
