Complain Less

“Someone else is happy with less than what you have.” — Anonymous

Last year gave us plenty of reasons to complain. But what’s the point of complaining about things we can’t do anything about?

We rather should focus on the things we can do something about. It helps us feel in control of at least some aspects of our lives.

Death is Inevitable

“Life will end — indeed. And that realization should affect the decisions I make each day. But rather than causing me to throw in the towel and give up on life, this shadow of death will spark hope and resolve and passion to spend each remaining day of my life making the most of it.”

Our life is finite, death is inevitable, but there’s also good about a finite life. The good thing about a finite life is that it changes us:

Because time is finite, we spend our days on things that matter.

Because our days are finite, we value relationships and love.

What a great article!

We receive one life to live, with a limited number of days and a limited number of resources with which to accomplish our purpose.

The World Exists in Your Eyes Only

“The world only exists in your eyes. You can make it as big or as small as you want.” ―F. Scott Fitzgerald, author of The Great Gatsby

This quote reminds me of one of my favorite quotes:

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” Albert Einstein

It looks like it is on us to decide how we see our lives.

When I deliberately decide to see the world as a miracle I see miracles everywhere, I see beauty everywhere. It is like magic.

The world only exists in your eyes!

How Not to Take Things Personally?

How often do you take things personally? Do you sometimes think others talk or even laugh about you? Here is a TED talk that can help you not to take things personally. Especially the last seconds are fantastic:

People may attack you, criticize you, or ignore you. They can crumple you up with their words, spit you out, or even walk all over you. But remember, whatever they do or say, you will always keep your value.

I love this TED talk. This video is especially for one person (N).

Quote I Love

Here is another great Einstein quote about being curious.

“The important thing is not to stop questioning. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery each day.” ―Albert Einstein

This quote always makes me want to understand the world.

I go through my life asking myself a lot of questions every day.

  • What makes me like certain colors?
  • How can a song make me relaxed?
  • Why do I hate some smells and love others?
  • What details make me think a person is beautiful?

Curiosity makes everything interesting.

Have a great day, all

Adam
