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

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

The Beatles – Here Comes The Sun

This classic by The Beatles may be about the upcoming summer, but also, metaphorically, about the fact that every bad situation comes to an end and then the sun comes back to your life 🙂

Observer

Here’s a piece of my original poetry for your enjoyment! This is a poem about seeing beauty in every single detail of the world surrounding you, enjoying life with every sense. If you look at the world lovingly, the world will respond in the same way! Remember, what you give is what you get. This especially applies to the energy we send out ourselves.

Look around! The beauty is all around you. You just need to observe more carefully 😉

Snoop Lion – The Good Good

One of the secrets to keep being positive and happy in life is to surround yourself with positive things. One of these could be the music you listen to. If it sends a good message and makes you feel better right from the start of the day, your mind will keep your focus on the bright sides of any situation you come across. So here is my first suggestion with the lyrics.

It’s a song by Snoop Dogg, who has changed his stage name to Snoop Lion after the huge transformation in his life. Now he’s all about love and peace and although many people criticize him for that, I personally think that we should admire him. All the positive messages he’s now sending out to the world make me start believing in humanity once again.

“The Good Good” is a song with both a positive melody which makes you feel, well, good, and also the lyrics which are about appreciating the presence and the love of the people in our lives. Keep it up, Snoop!
