Ready to spread your wings - A message from Nik P

gerlinde-keating.pixels.com

I love this song!

This song is for all young people who are spreading their wings to start on their journey into life.


Translation

When a bird learns to fly

Do you see the birds flying up there in the sky
Carried by the winds quietly and softly to an unknown destination

Refrain
When a bird learns to fly
He must leave his nest
 He must overcome the gravity
If he wants to fly high into the sky
If you want to fly like a bird
You have to be strong and brave
You have to overcome your fear
If you want to reach your goals

I hope that you will live your life
And enjoy the magic of our world
I wish you that your dream will come true
And that your lucky star
Will never fall from the sky

Enjoy everyday in your life!

It is the little things



LITTLE THINGS MEAN A LOT
A SMALL FLOWER
“It’s the little things that keep us together. Those little things will make me love you forever.” ~ Sonia Schaad


It isn’t the grand gestures that say love, it is all the little things we do every day.


Be Supportive
“Lean on each other’s strengths. Forgive each other’s weaknesses.” ~ Unknown

It is easy to be in a relationship when things are going well but it’s the tough times that strengthens the bond. Remember to be there, be supportive and ask for help when you need it.

Maintenance Matters
“A relationship is like a house. When a light bulb burns out you don’t go and buy a new house, you change the light bulb.” ~ Unknown

Making sure your relationship gets a regular care. It becomes more costly if you wait too long.

Think Freely
“If you want to know where your heart is, look to where your mind goes when it wanders.” ~ Unknown

Fostering your creative, thinking mind will keep you happy and thriving in your relationships.

Be Committed
“Marriage succeeds only as lifetime commitment with no escape clauses.” ~ Dr. James Dobson

Art that lifts your heart

Art that lifts the heart, whether you wear it or have it in your home.
Beautiful artwork brings joy.

Art is able to evoke all different kinds of emotion and can speak to your soul in a way that other elements of interior design can't.

12 habits that can cause unhappiness

LOVE
Happiness is something that we all strive to attain. As human beings we can accept the fact that: (a) life is short, and (b) unhappiness makes our lives difficult. As is common knowledge, our habits have a big impact on the quality of life that we live; specifically, these habits directly impact our happiness (or lack thereof).

1. Chronic Complaining
Happy and successful people do not complain much. On the other side, it seems that chronic complainers always have something negative to say… even when those around them are happy! The bottom line: we all have different circumstances that we are given in this lifetime, but in the end these circumstances are ours – fair or unfair, wanted or unwanted.
Instead, seek solutions to problems instead of complaining, which leads to nowhere.

2. Being critical – of self and others
How we talk to ourselves shapes our self-image, for better or worse. Self-worth is an essential component to our happiness, and feeling good about ourselves is a right that we all have.
Realize when mistakes are made, accept them, and move on…don’t engage in negative self-talk. Further, respect the inherent differences of others and recognize their right to live happily and without undue criticism.

3. Living beyond means We live in a materialistic society, one where we are constantly bombarded with advertisements for the latest car, gadget, or credit card; all promising an easier, more fulfilling existence. Don’t believe it for a second. While purchasing a new product may provide a needed emotional boost, it doesn’t last. Ever heard the term “buyer’s remorse”? It exists for a reason. Instead, seek out something to do that doesn’t involve whipping out a piece of plastic – exercise, reading, sightseeing, etc. – anything brings satisfaction without the debt.

4. Negative addictions
Most things are good in moderation – food, a drink or two, entertainment… it’s when these things take center stage in our lives that it becomes a problem. Unfortunately, many good people have met their end through addictive habits, especially through dependence on alcohol and drugs. A great preventative measure and remedy to these addictions? Finding and living our passions to the greatest extent possible (see #8).

5. Regretting the past Regret is not only useless, it can be extremely harmful. Research continues to show that repetitive, negative thoughts about decisions made in the past is often a precursor to chronic stress and depression. According to Psychology Today, there are four ways to cope with regret: (1) learn from mistakes but don’t dwell, (2) if nothing can be changed about the situation to let it go, (3) make sure too much blame is not being undertaken, and(4) reframing the situation more positively.

6. Worrying about the future
We only have so much say in what our future holds. This is not meant to disempower (quite the opposite); rather it is stating simple truth. What we can do is live in the present while fully exercising our God-given abilities and talents, enabling and empowering us to live a happier existence. There’s that phrase again: living in the present. Face difficulties as they arise and let them go. Enjoy the beautiful things in life and experience them fully…be present.

7. Being driven by fear
Yes, fear can be an enabler to unhappiness. To fully understand this, we have to again go back to being present. Quite simply, we can’t allow fear of the unknown (and/or the unavoidable) to cripple our quality of life. Fear is a negative thought process that is often on auto pilot. Remember: we are not our negative thoughts. We are not fear, worry, anxiety, or any other negative thought process.

8. Delaying goals and dreams It’s relatively easy and effortless to get caught up in the routine of life: working, eating, sleeping, maybe even a day or two of doing something fun or relaxing. But here’s the thing: by not directing our talents and passions toward a positive and tangible goal, we potentially discard something great before its realization. The hardest part of living out our goals and dreams is taking the first step. After building a game plan taking that first step, only then can we see the possibilities.

9. Gossiping
Nothing exudes unhappiness and insecurity more than negative small talk about someone else. After all, why would a happy, confident person engage in something that is of no benefit? They wouldn’t. Gossip is something to be left to the kids at recess, not to adults attempting to make their lives (and others!) better.

10. Holding grudges Similar to other negative emotions, animosity is a needless weight on our backs. We are all witness to the negative behaviors of other people and can become (sometimes justifiably) angered as a result. But remember: this isn’t about their ignorant behavior; it’s about your happiness. Either forgive, forget, or ignore… and move on with your life.

11. Eating poorly
Ingesting nutritionally-bankrupt food is all about immediate gratification. It’s certainly not about feeling good long-term, as eating poorly can result in bad health, weight gain, depression, lack of energy and decreased productivity; while having a well-balanced diet results in an entirely opposite effect – more energy, a healthy weight, mental alertness, and increased productivity. Eat right, look great, and feel great.

12. Expanding our problems
When we experience unhappiness and discontent, our first reaction is almost entirely emotional.
In other words, we blow things completely out of proportion. After all, we still have that darned “lizard brain” (amygdala) – the epicenter of negative emotions. Instead, just take a step back, look at the problem objectively (with minimal emotion), and focus on a solution  - Powerofpositivity.com

Behaviors That Keep You From Finding A Relationship That Works

I just read an article written by Power of Positivity, LLC. Here are a few excerpts.

Love has made you jaded
 You are stuck in the negativity, regret, and resentment about your past relationships, which is keeping you from finding a relationship that works. Who wants to be with someone who is only focused on the negative? No one you should want to be with, that's for sure. Try to find the lesson from these past loves, let go, grow, and open yourself up to only positives.

Low self-esteem
 Low self-esteem is one possible trait that keeps you from finding a relationship that works. It's hard to love someone else fully until you can say the same about your relationship with yourself.

You find it hard to trust
 In order to have a deep love, you first must have trust, because that vulnerability to being hurt is a requirement of love. Otherwise, you are just sharing a closed heart with someone, which will keep you from finding a relationship that works. 

Enjoy your day!

How you see the World

Become friend with people who are not your age.
Hang out with people whose first language is not the same as yours.
Get to know someone who does not come from your social class.
This is how you see the world.
This is how you grow!
