During my spring break I went back to Poland to celebrate Easter with my family. I was also hosting some friends from Switzerland (where I’m living at the moment) and wanted to show them some places in my country of origin. Naturally, I took them to a beautiful little town – Kazimierz Dolny, which is really close to my home town. As we were walking along the river and enjoying the stunning views, I noticed a really interesting graffiti on the wall beside. Surrounded by all the ugly and nonsense scribbles, there were two identical owls with the following words underneath: Continue reading
Every once in a while each of us encounters those special words on our way. It might be one sentence or a few, but it has an extremely powerful impact on us and can provoke a massive shift in thinking. Often, these words come to you when you least expect them, from a place where you would least expect them to appear. Not a long time ago, I’ve encountered this kind of quote in a song of Chrysta Bell and David Lynch. It’s about searching for happiness within yourself instead of the outside world. I find it really true for myself.
Recently, I’ve watched a really interesting video which made me think about the ways I could change my life by changing my behavior. It was a talk on vulnerability made by a researcher – Brene Brown. She introduces a fascinating concept of vulnerability being a positive thing. Continue reading
When I look out the window on the gloomy autumn days, I often catch myself getting melancholic and sad. There’s just something depressing about the rain and the lack of sunshine. However, luckily there are some ways that can instantly cheer up even the most prone to getting depressed souls.
Another one of my positive poems on the purpose of life which is nothing more and nothing less but happiness!

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” – Dr. Seuss
As I promised yesterday, today I’m going to present you, dear Readers, a before-sleep exercise, which effectiveness I have checked on my own skin. Continue reading
Think about the last 45 minutes of your day. What do you usually spend it doing? Playing computer games? Watching silly TV programmes? Contemplating your day? Worrying about tomorrow? Well, whatever you do, it has twice as much impact on you just because it’s done during those crucial 45 minutes before your sleep. Continue reading
It wouldn’t be a proper blog on positiveness without the “Don’t Worry Be Happy” song! I can’t imagine anything more uplifting than this. Whenever you feel down, just listen to this and feel the worries drift away. The song says it all for itself. Enjoy!
There are many things we fear in life. Every single day, we face fear of doing something because we’re afraid of what people would think about us or of approaching a person we like, because of the potential rejection. Many of us even fear that an accident might happen every time we or our family/friends get into a plane or a car. It’s so hard for us to presume that nothing bad will happen even though most of the time things that we fear never happen at all. How much time and energy could be saved if we stopped fearing and presumed that everything will simply turn out great? Continue reading
