About Guestspeaker

A joint effort of several authors who do find that nobody can keep standing at the side and that “Everyone" must care about what is going on in today’s world. We are a bunch of people who do not mind that somebody has a totally different idea but is willing to share the ideas with others and to be Active and willing to let others understand how "today’s decisions will influence the future”. Therefore we would love to see many others to "Act today".

”For The Moment Of Happiness”

To remember

smile because it happened

  • you need to be happy
  • striving for more ~~makes us great < never wise to make happiness dependent on it
  • unrealistic expectations = set us up for failure
  • addiction to toxic people + activities brings us down

lessons to be happier

1. Don’t start with profundities.  > start with basics

2. Do let the sun go down on anger. > notion of anger catharsis = poppycock.

3. Fake it till you feel it. Feelings follow actions.

4. Realize anything worth doing = worth doing badly. Challenge & novelty = key elements of happiness.

5. Don’t treat blues with a “treat.”

6. Buy some happiness. basic psychological needs include feeling loved, secure, and good at what we do.

7. Don’t insist on the best. 2 types of decision makers. Satisficers + Maximizers => Satisficers happier than maximizers.

8. Exercise to boost energy. Exercise = most dependable mood-boosters.

9. Stop nagging. replace nagging with persuasive tools

What do you need to be happy? All too often, we list the things we want: a bigger house, a cooler car, a trip around the world, money for retirement, a new friend or lover.

While striving for more is one of the things that makes us great, it’s never wise to make your happiness dependent on it. All too often, it’s hard to bring the things we want into our lives.

But one thing you do have the power to do is let go of things you don’t want or need. Whether out of habit or because of peer pressure or family pressure, we often cling to poisonous thoughts, feelings, and individuals.

Our unrealistic expectations set us up for failure, and our addiction to toxic people and activities brings us down. And then we wonder why it’s…

Waar ging ik fout?

Oké, het leven is moeilijk

Ingewikkeld, complex, ruw

Het hoort zo te zijn

Hoe kunnen we zien

Waar we de weg kwijt zijn geraakt

Tenzij we kunnen uitdokteren waar we verkeerd gingen?

Hier is het pad van het leven te vinden; wees sterk!

Okay, life is tough

Complicated, complex, rough

It’s supposed to be

How can we see

Where we lost our way

Unless we find out where we went wrong?

Here’s to finding life’s path; be strong!

A moment to look inward

At least one moment but as many as is helpful to look inward,
check in with yourself and focus on wellbeing
– meditate on that wellbeing for yourself.
That inner wellbeing will become wellbeing for others as well
and then will benefit all that is.
Take good care of yourself in all that you do.

Kijk op de wereld afhangende van het raam waardoor men kijkt

Je kijk op de wereld hangt heel erg af
van het venster dat je kiest om naar buiten te kijken.

on the window you choose to look out of.

Window 190 – The door to our truth, can only be opened from within

A Window Of Wisdom

photo(148)

“When we are unable to face the truth of our own feelings, we will vent our emotional pain upon anyone that goes against what we are trying to control, due to the exhaustion of representing our self as the truth, we wish we could be.”

 True freedom can only be felt when we stop concealing our thoughts, desires, and beliefs, and stop pretending to be someone we are not, or pleasing others out of fear; for when our truth is spoken, our spirit emerges, and our fear becomes void, to which freedom of our true self takes flight.

Moge elke kamer lachen
en elk raam openen voor een grote mogelijkheid. “
