What is love? This question has been asked so many times and yet everyone you may have asked have most likely had a completely different answer. In truth, love is just a word. It’s a word every single person defines on their own. It’s an abstraction and just as with many other emotions, no one can really claim to know the single true meaning of it. Continue reading
The best dating advice you’ll ever read
Today I found myself thinking about relationships and more precisely – relationship/dating advice. It seems that everyone on the dating scene these days is obsessed with what they should and shouldn’t do in order to attract/keep a partner. It’s enough to look at the articles flooding glossy magazines or visit a self-help/psychology books section in the nearest library. The tempting titles promise to teach you what and when to say, what to write in a text message after the first date, how to spend the dates, what to wear, how to gaze at the person, when and how to initiate a sexual intercourse. The myriad of bestselling book titles will range from “Dating Guru’s 101 Conversation Starters” to “The New Rules for Love, Sex, and Dating”. Continue reading
The beautiful mind – reflections on how we limit ourselves
Lately, I caught myself torn between two (possibly even three) distinct ideas for my future career, almost paralyzed by the idea of sharing my time between two completely different goals. After all, we have all been taught that in order to achieve anything, we should choose one path and follow it with abandon, constantly taking steps and educating ourselves in this chosen field. On the other hand, I couldn’t quite accept the idea of choosing only one career. Continue reading

There are no mistakes…
Many people tend to be afraid of having to make decisions. If you ask such a person ‘why’, they will normally tell you that they are afraid of making a mistake, choosing the wrong option. However, when we come to think of it, are things in life really either black or white? And thus can an option only be either a mistake or the right choice? Continue reading
True independence – does it exist?
Recently, I have been thinking about independence. Oftentimes we call ourselves independent when we start making decisions for ourselves or earning our living. When it comes to financial independence, it makes sense – when we grow up and start working, we become financially independent from our parents. However, what about the choices and decisions that we make? Are they truly independent? Continue reading
How fairy tales can prevent us from finding true happiness
From the earliest years we are told countless fairy tales. The little girls are fed with all those stories where the handsome prince comes on the white horse saving the princess… And they live happily ever after… However, no one seems to realize that these repeated threads stay in the subconsciousness of the child, creating the false presumptions in their later life. Continue reading
Big girls don’t cry… Do they?
Do you ever feel completely powerless, unable to move? Do you ever feel confused with life, not knowing what to do with it? Do you ever find yourself crying because of the enormous pain growing inside you for no apparent reason? And it all makes you feel even worse about yourself because in the end you have nothing to complain about. After all, there are people in this world who are starving, have no roof above their head or are fighting with cancer. And you find yourself so horribly ungrateful, even spoiled for crying over your life. Well, I must tell you, you are not alone. I have also suffered from the feelings of pointlessness, feeling powerless and confused, asking myself ‘When does it all end? Where am I headed? What am I to do with myself?’. Continue reading

Pharrell Williams – Happy
I wasn’t around here for quite some time but now I’m back for good! And I have plenty of treats for you up my sleeve so be prepared! 🙂
This song has become popular from the very first moment it was released but I’m pretty sure it’s not just because of the fact that it’s sung by Pharrell Williams… There is something to it that actually seems to cheer people up. Any time I hear it in public, people around me start to swing to the rhythm, hum or simply smile. It’s amazing!
