Spotted: happiness dust

April 26, 2014 | Inspirational column | 0 comments

When I say challenges, what is the first thing that pops up in your mind? To have and to hold a healthier lifestyle for example? Or maybe to do something you’ve never done before like…bungeejumping? When we are talking about physical or other “tangible” challenges, a lot of people will be up for it. But what about the mental challenges? The amount of people that will start with a mental challenge is far less than physical challenges. The ones that will try to keep challenging themselves mentally? Even fewer. However, keep in mind that everyday, everyone is “seeking” for happiness. Isn’t it ironic? So, let’s hear it for the mental challenges. Because what’s within you will influence every action on the outside.
Welcome to the 100happydays challenge. Or in this case, my 100happydays challenge. Although I am someone who already has a positive state of mind, I really wanted to take …

The mistakes missile

March 6, 2014 | Inspirational column | 0 comments

Every day of your life you leave a trail of choices with or without mistakes. Today might have been a good day or it might have been a bad day. Tomorrow you might get lucky or maybe you won’t. Next week you might make some good choices and next month a (few) mistake(s). Or you mix it all up in a cocktail of good and bad choices in one day. Anything can happen.Keep in mind that the ones that are making good choices today, will also make mistakes. Maybe not today or tomorrow, but next week, next month or a few years from now. Because everyone gets hit by the mistakes missile every now and then.

January 4, 2014 | Vintage lifestyle | 0 comments

We’re still in the spicy food for thought mood. So here is another (mid)night inspiration treat. I love original in-your-face quotes. Today it’s time to bring you some of the most inspirational and lovely in-your-face quotes of writer F. Scott Fitzgerald. His short novels have been the base of several movies like The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and of course: The Great Gatsby, (I wrote a review of the last Great Gatsby movie).
But, since it’s inspirational quote time, let’s hear it for the masterpieces of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s short stories. When you read them you’ll realise something. One way or another they can still be applied in your life today and in the lives of others 100 years of today.
 

 

 

No you can’t, but at least you’ve tried

When it comes down to events in your life, there are a lot of things you can control. Unfortunately, there are also essential things beyond your control.

 
Controlling your attitude, yes you can
 
Controlling someone else’s attitude, no you can’t
 
Put your back into it, yes you can
 
Let others make their effort, no you can’t
 
Dive into an adventure, yes you can

 
Let your adventures end well, no you can’t
 

An ode to odd compliments

December 7, 2013 | A laugh a day | 0 comments

I’m having a new addiction in the online entertainment section. The daily odd compliments addiction. Compliments wrapped in very originally found comparisons that make totally sense or are totally nonsense. However the impact of the compliments may actually be stronger, because of the weirdness, creativity and last but once again not least: hilarity.
Hilarity just makes the world go round. So forget those mainstream, normal compliments and go get them with the ones below. And cheers to staying odd.
 
Free pie for everyone

 
Useful information

 
It’s all about accomplishing important goals

 
 Just flirting. Like the big bad wolf would do with a little pig.

 
 The highest level of respect
