Vlog #7: How to feel happy every single day of your life
Some people say that you can’t possibly be happy and positive all the time. However, I cannot help but disagree with this statement. In today’s vlog you will find my simple formula for happiness (as cheesy as it may sound…). Continue reading
Here’s a little poem which perfectly reflects my philosophy of life. Enjoy! 🙂
What to do when your life sucks
Today, while having my gym session, I was thinking how way too often I hear people around me saying things like ‘I’m so fat’, ‘My life sucks’, ‘I never have money for anything’, ‘People don’t like me’, ‘Old ladies and teenagers have a better sex life than me’, ‘I can’t change’, ‘It’s too difficult’, ‘I hate my job’ and so on and so on. For me, all of these statements fall into one huge category called ‘complaining’. Seriously people, I don’t mean to offend anyone but it seems that somehow we have become a generation which expects a lot and yet is not particularly willing to put much effort in it. We want things to happen to us just like that, for free. The thing is, it doesn’t work this way. If you want to change something, then stop complaining and do something about it. Continue reading
What if… there is no point?
Recently I have come across a couple of recordings that have influenced my life philosophy significantly. I have been fascinated by the zen teachings for quite some time and it was natural for me to explore what Alan Watts, the great speaker and philosopher, interested in this topic, had to say.

You can make excuses or you can make it happen
Lately I have been thinking about the dynamics that determine the direction of our lives. And analysing my own life, it became pretty obvious – in the end the times when I actively took action instead of waiting around for something to happen, account for the biggest and most positive breakthroughs. Continue reading
It’s all about the perception!
Here is the new portion of positive quotes for this week. As usual – straight to the point, they show a way of thinking that once actually implemented in every day life, could change your world significantly. It’s all about the perception and your conscious choice of the way you think! Enjoy! 😉 Continue reading
F**k it and set yourself free
Some time ago I came across a really simple but extremely powerful idea for life philosophy. I have been searching for some inspiring books in the psychological books section and what caught my eye was the title of a little black book, which read: ‘F**k it’. At the first sight, the book seemed more entertaining than practical. It was fun to read all those tips about saying f**k it and for instance singing ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ out loud in public or doing plenty of other random things that were in the end supposed to make one feel free. The funny thing is that now as I look back, the once completely abstract idea has started to make more and more sense in my life. Continue reading
Today, I’m reposting another poem from my poetry blog. As you can see from the title, it’s about perfection, which I think lies in the simplest things. The only difficulty is to actually notice it around you and embrace it. I believe that being attentive to those perfect little moments of enjoying an amazing landscape or the sunbeams on your skin is crucial in the overall experience of happiness and fulfilment.
What would the wise owl do?
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
