What is school

Watching the past times brought back to life, watching the kids dressed up like in the old times... I wonder who loved learning more...

Is going to school nowadays a privilege or burden? Is it a joy or a modern torture?

Do we cherish the gift of learning or not?

School is so much more than just a school. It is a box of knowledge, mystery, excitement, interesting stories that can help us grow, full of teachers as role models, school-friends as social network to challenge our emotions and believes, pleasant or unpleasant environment, noisy and calming moments, freedom and limitations. 

School is so much more than it was years ago, but we get stuck focusing on little things and get lost before noticing how many oportunities we can find in school for learning and experiencing great lessons for life.

How about if we start this school-year differently? Let's step back, learn from the past and look at the school from a distance to see the whole picture, to see the greater meaning of school - all of us: the kids, the teachers and the parents.

Enjoy the journey and keep calm!

Choose your direction

Crossroads are interesting, if you don't have a map in your hands and you don't know exactly where you go. There are days when you just live from moment to moment. You wait that something will happen all by itself and you will live your dreams... until the happy end...

Inspiration No.10 of Giving thanks, giving gifts: choose your direction.

Although it sounds wonderful, at the end, you still have to choose your direction. Some people never go anywhere because they feel good at home even though they don't like lots of things there. Some people stop at the first crossroads and think, think, think where to go. They wait that someone else will decide for them instead. 

But a courage is to use your own brain, your own feet and decide to go. Into direction you've chosen.

Let your head and feet take you very far in the new year!

Keep moving

Sometimes I'm stuck. I find a problem and dig and dig and dig into it. I torture it, I torture myself with it, trying to get into the bottom of it and am getting angry at it, because nothing happens usually. Because I forget that everything around me keeps on moving, they go with the flow. When you're stuck, you only have a little time to go further, or you will fall.

Inspiration No.8 of Giving thanks, giving gifts: keep moving!

I wish that you go through the year and through your life with a flow. Don't stay stuck too long when you find obstacles on your path. Keep on moving, even though slowly. Let your ride through the days makes your days interesting, colorful and full of new learning.

Be brave!

Always there

When I heard about Robin Williams and his sad goodbye, my World stopped for a while. I was soaked into my deep Self, where things from my past were waiting to be awakened again. And that day came...

Transient

There he was, a boy from my childhood, the happiest kid in the neighborhood. Always laughing, always full of life, always making others people's lives a little bit brighter. And then, one day, he was gone. A suicide. At age 13. And a big wound in my heart.

Years passed by. The best years of my life were spent in a beautiful presence of a guy I really liked. He made us laugh, love life and he was our guide into a soulful life, focusing on the others. He was my inspiration - to live better, to do better. And then, one day, he was gone. Cancer. At age 20. And a big wound in my heart.

In a way, Robin Williams was for me a projection of those two people. He had the same 'glow' around him as I remembered I saw around my friends. He helped me to keep my friends in my heart - they were always there, very alive, very true.

I believe they were part of my path into Art therapy. I've always had a need to help people to be who they really are. The quiet ones, depressed ones, sad ones, the 'happy' ones, the abused ones, the poor ones... They were my teachers and they were my patients. They were my motivation and inspiration.

Transient

So I chose a path, called Art Therapy. But the World today doesn't want to deal with people who need help. The World closes its eyes and pretends they are gone. And for those, who do want to help, it feels like they are fighting with the windmills. The system wanted my money, but not my help. So, my life-path had to change a direction. I decided to invest the money into people, not a system. Because of that, my journey will be longer and harder, but Art therapy will always be with me, no matter what. And my friends, and Robin Williams and all the people I've worked with on my journey will always be there, too. Because of them I won't give up the things that are written in my heart, probably from the day I was born.

That's why I would like to dedicate this post and a video from my favorite Williams's movie role 'Patch Adams' to all of you who dream about a better World, better people and things we could do to make our lives brighter. Let the video inspire you to give, do and feel the best you can, and never give up your dreams, your true Self.

Amazing silence

Life has its own ways...

Transient

Lately, mine are better than I've expected them to be. Many times I'm feeling like riding a roller-coaster and feeling tired after the ride, but the gifts I receive on this journey leave me speechless. Amazed...
Meeting new people, shiny people..., being inspired by beautiful nature..., doing what my soul loves to do... 

So, my friends, I'm sorry to be quiet here for such a long time. My Life needs some time to settle down, to let me speak loud again, to share my thoughts with you...
At the moment I'm still in the phase of listening. And clicking. And changing. Just me and the perfect World. Everything else needs to wait a little bit.

I hope to come back to 'you' as soon as possible, with fresh news, fresh ideas, fresh me. I hope you'll still be there, sharing with me your thoughts and opinions, your bits and pieces of your life.

Thank you for your patience and faithfulness. Until then... all the best.
