You must hunger for everything

 

To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower

Wanting something is not enough. You must hunger for it. Your motivation must be absolutely compelling in order to overcome the obstacles that will invariably come your way.

Les Brown

Όλοι οι πόλεμοι είναι εμφύλιοι πόλεμοι επειδή όλοι οι άνθρωποι είναι αδέρφια …

Ο καθένας οφείλει απείρως περισσότερο στην ανθρώπινη φυλή παρά στη συγκεκριμένη χώρα στην οποία γεννήθηκε

Francois de Salignac de La Mothe- Fenelon

What would you wish for if a fairy gives you a magical wish?

 

You may not see the fairies and think they’re not around,
but out amongst the trees and plants these special beings abound.

Whenever you’re in nature they are just beyond your sight,
as their very favourite playtime is whilst you sleep at night.

If you’d like some magic fairy dust you should make your wishes clear, then ask the fae to bless your wish and click to be sprinkled ……..

May all your wishes come true!

To your enemy, forgiveness.

To an opponent, tolerance.

To a friend, your heart.

To a customer, service. To all, charity.

To every child, a good example.

To yourself, respect.”

Παραμονή Χριστουγέννων. Εικόνες, μυρωδιές και γεύσεις κατακλύζουν τη μνήμη μας. Αλλοτινές εποχές τραγουδούν στην ψυχή μας.

Στιγμές των παιδικών μας χρόνων πασπαλισμένες με ζάχαρη. Το σπίτι, παστρικό και στολισμένο, η οικογένεια σε πλήρη δράση για τις ετοιμασίες, οι μυρωδιές από το ανθόνερο στους κουραμπιέδες και από τα κανελλογαρύφαλλα των μελομακάρονων, το σχολείο, με τα μπαμπάκια και τις χαλκομανίες στολισμένα στα παράθυρα, τα ποιήματα και τα τραγούδια των γιορτών…

Αγαπησιάρικες ευχές για χουχουλιάρικες γιορτές εύχομαι ολόψυχα!!!

The King & the Ring – This Too Shall Pass

 

Do you feel sometimes that life overwhelms you with stress, worries, mounting “to do” list, demanding bosses, clients, family members, responsibilities, bills, and challenges?
This legend and the song are for you.

0

During the festive Passover meal with his ministers, King Solomon teased Benaiah son of Jehoiada, his arrogant Chief of Army.

– “Benaiah, I was told that there is a special ring that has a special power. It can change the mood of a person. A sad person becomes happy when watching it and a happy person becomes sad. I know that you of all people in the kingdom can find the ring. Would you be able to find this ring and bring it to me until the eve of Sukkot eve, that is 6 months from now?” Continue reading

Peer sharing….

Intentional Peer Support

If I could write a poem about hope
I’d call it Intentional Peer Support.
It would be about connection, worldview, mutual responsibility, and
moving towards not away from.

If I could write a poem about social justice,
I’d call it Intentional Peer Support.
It would be about inclusion of vast and different personal stories, our views, cultures,
values, experiences, knowledge, uncommon and common sense, our ideas.

If I could write a poem about relationships,
I’d call it Intentional Peer Support.
It would be about challenging ourselves to see and think differently
to learn and grow together.

If I could write a poem about compassion,
I’d call it Intentional Peer Support.
It would be about acknowledging and sharing our power
while still daring to be powerful.
It would be about sensitivity, self definitions and self determination.

If I could write a poem about listening differently,
I’d call it Intentional Peer Support.
It would be about tuning into one another,
suspending what we think we know
in order to discover what we didn’t
It would be about a commitment to be patient
with the process of relating and each other.

If I could write a poem about community,
I’d call it Intentional Peer Support.
It would be about prioritizing our relationships
in the family and in our communities
as we define our families, as we remain apart of community.

If I could write a poem about vision,
I’d call it Intentional Peer Support.
It would be about a new vision of interacting with peers
forgetting what we don’t want, envisioning what we do,
living well in the present, and creating a better tomorrow.

If I could write a poem about Intentional Peer Support,
It would be about social change
I’d call it social change.

Big risk…. Denis Waitley

ΗAVE A NICE WEEKEND!!!!

Life is inherently risky. There is only one big risk you should avoid at all costs, and that is the risk of doing nothing.

Η ζωή είναι εκ φύσεως επικίνδυνη. Υπάρχει μόνο ένας μεγάλος κίνδυνος που πρέπει να αποφύγετε με κάθε κόστος, και αυτός είναι ο κίνδυνος να μην κάνετε τίποτα.

“The whole universe is in a glass of wine”

A poet once said, “The whole universe is in a glass of wine.” We will probably never know in what sense he meant that, for poets do not write to be understood. But it is true that if we look at a glass of wine closely enough we see the entire universe.

 

Ένας ποιητής είπε κάποτε: «Το σύμπαν όλο βρίσκεται μες σ’ ένα ποτήρι κρασί». Και ίσως ποτέ να μη μας είναι σαφές τι εννοούσε ακριβώς μ’ αυτή του την κουβέντα, γιατί, ως γνωστόν, οι ποιητές δε γράφουν για να τους καταλάβουμε εμείς.

Είναι όμως αλήθεια πως αν κοιτάξουμε ένα ποτήρι κρασί από πολύ κοντά θα δούμε όλο το σύμπαν μέσα.

Aυτογνωσία – Self knowledge

aristotelis.jpg

Aristotle has said knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.

Having wisdom will open so many things for you in life.

 

Aristotle

“Every shut eye ain’t sleep and every good-bye ain’t gone”.

 

Εvery closed eye ain’t sleep means that when you ignore something happening , doesn’t mean you’re stupid and that you don’t know.

And that every goodbye ain’t gone , means it stays in your memory , especially if it was someone important. You’ll always remember it.

Kάθε κλειστό μάτι δεν κοιμάται,  σημαίνει ότι όταν αγνοείς κάτι που συμβαίνει, δεν σημαίνει ότι είσαι ηλίθιος και ότι δεν ξέρεις.

Και ότι κάθε αντίο δεν έχει φύγει, σημαίνει ότι μένει στη μνήμη σας, ειδικά αν κάτι ήταν σημαντικό  θα το θυμάσαι πάντα.

“Gossip dies the moment it hits a wise person’s ears.”

gossip

Avoid gossips and do not engage gossipers.

For it has been said that people who love to talk to you about other people are the same people who love to talk about you to other people.

Γιατί κουτσομπολεύουμε;

Σύμφωνα με τους ψυχολόγους, ο κύριος λόγος που το κάνουμε είναι η επιθυμία μας να απλοποιηθεί η διαδικασία της οικοδόμησης κοινωνικών δεσμών με τους άλλους. Οι αντιπάθειες που μοιράζονται από δυο ανθρώπους μπορούν να τους φέρουν πιο κοντά από ότι τα κοινά ενδιαφέροντα.

Making the darkness consius…

“I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.” ~ OG Mandino

one-does-not-become-enlightened

Το μόνο που χρειάζεται είναι να κάνετε κλικ στις νυχτερινές ειδήσεις για να δείτε ότι υπάρχουν άνθρωποι που υπομένουν τρομερά πράγματα σε αυτόν τον κόσμο. Πόλεμοι, δολοφονίες,  άνθρωποι που ζουν στη φτώχεια και άνθρωποι άρρωστοι.

 

All it takes is a click on to the nightly news to see that there are people who endure terrible things in this world. Wars are being fought, murders are happening, there are people living in poverty and people getting sick with disease. Continue reading

O κόσμος είναι η αντανάκλαση των σκέψεών μας

Να έχετε κατά νου τον κόσμο σας ……….είναι μια αντανάκλαση των σκέψεών σας.

Βελτιώστε τα λόγια σας και βελτιώστε τη ζωή σας.

Whether you recognize it or not, all the self-talk that you already do is a long string of affirmations.

To change your life, you need to use affirmations all through your waking hours as a result that negative thoughts do not get a chance to form in your mind. The positive words that you say, of “affirmations,”leave in the least no room for negativity.

If the negativity attempt to creep into work harder on absorbing the use of statements, it works. It will work wonders in your life, and if you feel cynical about your life, it is contrary affirmations which made you think this way.

Nonetheless, keep in mind your world is a reflection of your thoughts. Improve your words, and improve your life.
