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
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.

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!
That’s why I strongly recommend it for your personal positive music collection. If you don’t have your playlist yet, you should definitely make it right now. It’s a great tool to have close at hand any time you feel bad. Music has the real power to change your mood instantly, so why not use it?
Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened – Dr. Seuss
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!
We all know that sometimes there’s nothing better to boost our happiness than a brief and still full of wisdom sentence that says it all. So here is a collection of my favorite quotes:
“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” – Dr. Seuss
Try this at home! – a daily confidence exercise

45 minutes to save the world!

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
The Beatles – Here Comes The Sun
Here’s just another positive incentive!
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 🙂
So don’t worry! Whatever happened, it won’t last forever.
