From Silver to Platinum


After you lose something it’s value raises.
If it was Silver before, it becomes Gold
If it was Gold before, it becomes Platinum
And when it becomes Platinum, you want it back

It’s about the little things…


It’s not about your words, it’s about how sincere they are
It’s not what you say, but how you say it
It’s not about having a brain, but about using it
It’s not about saying you care, but about showing it
It’s not about making decisions on temporary situations, but about the long run
It’s not about making mistakes, but about how well you learn from them
It’s not about wanting, but about trying

 

It’s about the little things that make a big difference…

Some things will never change…

Paul Newman black suit

So I was in my old-hollywood-movie-mood again. As I watched some movies I realised, some things will never change. Ofcourse technology had changed 180 degrees from 1950 till now. And sure… the material life as we know it was unthinkable back in the days. But certain things will always stay the same…:

Men will be men (Some like it hot, 1959)

Diamonds & pearls are still a girl’s best friend (80% of the movies from let’s say…1920 till now)

– We still like good dancing… (Fred Astaire / Gene Kelly  movies)

– And great sense of humour (Laurel & Hardy, Charlie Chaplin)

– Sense of great fashion style (Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly and many more..)

Opposites can complement each other…

March 24, 2012 | Inspirational column | 0 comments

Petite, but not small minded

Sweet, but no angel

Full of dreams, but not delusional

Young, but an old soul

Following my own pad without getting lost

Restless, but still a Chill Guru

Spicy with enough sugar to keep the balance

Warm hearted, but “freezing” around those who are cold

When it get’s clouded…always trying to find the sunny side

Inspiration from top to toe…

February 26, 2012 | Life | 0 comments

Now this is what I call a true inspiring person.

Isn’t it interesting…

A person with no legs and arms who:
– teaches other people (who may have less serious issues) about positive thinking
– enjoys his life to the fullest, despite of his handicap
– has the brightest smile
– has such a positive vibe, that you can truly “feel” it even through this 4-minute video
