The World after Midnight

World After Midnight

British philosopher Alan Watts has a wonderful talk about what we should focus on when deciding on how to spend the 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.

Why We Get Angry and What to Do About It

why we get angry

People usually think that anger is the emotion over which they have very little control or none at all. People who are angry rather often may say that anger is part of their character and they can not do anything about it.

He came up with the explanation about the origins of human anger. Luckily for us, he also gave valuable insights about how to avoid getting angry or at least lessen the chances to get angry or disappointed.
