What would the wise owl do?

wiseowlDuring 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

True happiness lies within…

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.

“Fear makes strangers of people who would be friends” – Shirley Maclaine

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.
