Isn´t It Shocking How Ladies See Themselves?

How Lady Sees HerselfWhen I watched this video couple of weeks ago – it shocked me. I thought about this insane female attitude – why we, ladies, are so tough with ourselves while meanwhile we can be so nice to other ladies?

When I shared this video with Michel – he too got thinking. He said that ladies must be spending so much energy on not only rejecting to see their own beauty, but also convincing themselves of being pure ugly. He said we must be wasting so much energy on this depressing activity. It´s no wonder if we struggle to feel great – often there is simply not enough energy left to feel great, so we settle for feeling good (or less than good).

Guess, how I came across this video?! A very strong and smart guy, my friend, shared it with me. Thank you for caring! This too got me thinking. And also – changing my attitude so I stop being unfair with myself and stop wasting my energy on this activity.

Watch this video yourself and see what thoughts and actions it inspires in you…

Amazing three A for Your Abundant 2013

abundant 2013

As a Latvian-Swiss binational couple we travel several times a year between Riga and Zürich. So if you pay attention to what is below the clouds you might probably see some Germany, some Poland or even some Lithuania. Above the clouds nevertheless it doesn´t really matter which country it is. It´s simply beautiful.

Dear Friends, Happy New Year! Let 2013 be full of wonderful discoveries – all around and inside!

We hope that this New Era (as we call it here, by us) for you is starting well, and with many good experiences, discoveries and adventures to look forward to!

As for us, we took OFF the last part of the year and the beginning of this one.

No traveling. No working. No duties. No meetings.
Just some necessary family time.
Lots of walks in the fresh air.

And lots and lots of reading, writing, reflection, digging, drafting, discussing, sharing and… inspired Daring, Questioning, Re-Imagining and Creating The New.

IT FELT ooooooh SO GOOD…

Some of it needs to be polished. Some of it: more re-imagined.
And most of it needs to be brought to life. We can´t wait to share the best of it with you! And we hope to do it sooner than we think 🙂

As for now – we want to share with you this TED talk by Neil Pasricha who reveals three A secrets that lead to truly awesome life.
Our take away – “life will not go according to your plan“. And the pearl: “Authentic means BEING YOU and BEING COOL WITH THAT“. It almost sounds like mantra 😉

You can also watch this talk on TED.

Have You Become the Prisoner in Your Own Heart?

Stop being a Prisoner
This video is a real treat (well, it was for us) – it is a chance to accompany an extraordinary man on his unique journey and learn from him surprising things that make you think and be inspired loooong after you are done with watching the video. (For us – it´s been a week since we watched him talk, but his words still appear in our minds and conversations. Every single day. And- for good.)

John Francis has walked great distances by foot. He has avoided talking for a very long time (and there is a great reason and benefit from it!). He has taught his students in an unusual way. His journey and way of life have taken him through powerful transformation. Now he shares his brave insights about different things, including – what it means to be a prisoner in own heart.

The Scary Issue about THANK YOU

saying thanks

We are all taught to say THANK YOU. When is it that we say it? When we are supposed to? When we want to? And is it at all about saying THANK YOU or is it about being grateful? There is a tricky thing hiding behind that whole THANK YOU stuff. It takes only 3 minutes to change our relationship with THANK YOU from now on.

Why always to be dressed for the Party?

party

Is it so that Friday Night is Party Night?! 🙂 Or it does not really matter when is the party? Anyway – the craziness and humor are a perfect fit for discussing such subject. And there is a perfect man to give us a great dose of both. Meet: Steve Edge. Eccentric. Designer. Dyslexic (never read a book). And self described madman. He can teach us some valuable things. Also between lines. If we are ready to learn…

Excellent Movie about Being Different and the Crowd

Birds and crowd

This funny animation movie is such an excellent example about the BEHAVIOR OF CROWD and its attitude towards somebody who is different. It is also a great example of an individual BEING DIFFERENT and being completely cool and fine about it… This video is full of valuable insights. It is genius!
When I watched it for the first time I could not help but smile about the fantastic message it carries. I was thinking about having seen it countless times happening in the real life when it was performed by real people.
