Who we are

We said goodbye to winter and now it's time to start a new journey, it's time to grow. New adventures are waiting for us, new opportunities to bloom. Which pathway will you choose? Where will you go?

Climbing the mountains is one way of doing it. But it depends how we do it or why. Some do it to be on the top and enjoy the wonderful views. Some want to feel every muscle of their body and sweat all the poison out. Some want to be higher than everyone else. Some people want to escape from everyday life for a few hours. The others want to be closer to heaven.

But at the end we are who we are. On the mountain, under the sea, in our bedroom, at work, on vacation... - the luggage we carry with us all the time is 'us'. The bags can be heavy or light - whatever we choose to take on our journey.

This winter I learned to simplify my life and leave most of my bags at home. It was not easy as I like a comfortable life, but some wise words from the people I admire helped. Today I'm sharing one of them - my favourite, inspiring and beautiful talks that might help you change the way you see yourself and the others.

And now ask yourself who you are, what are you thinking about - about you, the others, the world. What kind of 'bags' do you carry with you and do you really need them?

It's spring. Nature is waking up, everything is alive and fresh and ready to grow. I think it's time we grow, too.

I'm looking forward to see you bloom!

Like father, like son

Working as a teacher gave me a great opportunity to observe how kids can become copies of their parents sometimes.

Transient

The same gestures, the same melody of voice, the same rolling eyes, the same perfectionism, the same compassion, the same generosity... Sometimes I'm happy to see the great qualities that parents 'pass onto' their children, and sometimes I'm sad, because children behave exactly the same as their parents, even if the behavior is destructive. Parents sometimes forget how important they are in their children's lives. Children are like sponges - they soak in everything they see and feel.

So, today, I would like to thank all the parents who are aware what an impact they have on their children. They are good example to their children, they try hard to radiate the best of their Self, and are a 'model' to their children. 

Question #8:

What did you take over from your parents while observing them?
