How to enjoy life

British philosopher Alan Watts has a wonderful talk about what we should focus on when deciding on how to spend the life. He asks: “How would you really enjoy spending your life?” His message is somewhat similar to the message of professor Larry Smith who teaches how not to waste life when deciding what life to choose.

There are nice pearls of wisdom in this short 3 minutes video with Watt´s talk – becoming a master, being an example to others, living a life that is full of meaning. His talk certainly will make you think deeper about your own life.

Living Each Day to Its Fullest

way to go cat stevens

Friends, it´s a new week and it asks for something positive. We think that this song “If You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out” by Cat Stevens (now Yusuf Islam) is exactly that – freeing, positive, and also – has a deep meaning.

We are big fans of this song and play it at our home quite often. In fact – there have been days when we needed to focus on what was important for us while making big decisions for our life, and then we had this song on “repeat”. It went on and on for couple of hours… Yes, now you know it – we are that weird.
