Note to self

None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.

Just walk on the earth

New Year’s resolution

People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.

If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.

Mother Theresa

And a happy new year to all of you!

Advice on Life (Picture)

After all, life is not that hard.

Take what you need

The truth about every piece of advice ever: it’ll work for some people, it won’t work for others.

Advice is never omnipotent. It does not work for everyone and it sure does not work for everyone in the same extend. You have to chose what is good for you and consume it.

Let me tell you a story

The best way to teach people is by telling a story.

Kenneth Blanchard

Just telling people how stuff works is a pretty useless attempt in teaching them. It will only work if they are really eager to learn and came to you for advice in the first place.

A way smarter method is telling a story that lets other people discover the lesson they should learn by themselves. This is a damn old concept but it’s important to remember. Always have good, interesting and useful stories with you that other people can learn from.
