Activity suggestions for unemployed or self-employed people


Many of us can’t stand the idea of being employed in a big corporation, in a small office, doing the whole day what one is supposed to do, not what one likes to do, anymore. Some of us would gladly do that, but they can not find a job. We all need money in order to survive, at least now, as long as we have to pay for electricity, telecommunications and other services.

“Kiss the hand, honored Madam!”

ID-100232872 patrisyu

In some countries, mostly in Europe, there is a custom: kissing the hand of the women. This is still considered to be a sign of good manner, though it is in danger of disappearing. This gesture is a supreme act of courtesy, an attribute of the civilized men. One shouldn’t kiss the hand of a lady neither in the park, nor on he beach, not even on the street. Optimally, one should kiss the hand of a woman inside a house or an apartment.

During the communist regime, this gesture was accompanied by the phrase “Kiss the hand, honored Madam!”. Many women find it disgusting, though.

The women can tell older women, like their mother, mother-in-law, aunt, grandmother “Kiss the hand!”, but they don’t kiss the hand anymore. In the past, the women kissed also the hands of their parents, or superior authority, now it is considered to be no longer necessary.  Read the rest of this entry »


Being late – how can you improve the situation?

ID-10010666 Salvatore Vuono

Most of us are familiar with this scenario: waking up late, hurrying to get washed and dressed, remembering to get everything, maybe to walk the dog, to bring the children to the kindergarten/school and get in time to work or elsewhere.

Easy to say it, hard to do it. How should one proceed?

The evening before:

1. You should prepare: your clothes, accessories, shoes, purse and so on.

2. You should wash your hair and do the hairdressing. Read the rest of this entry »


How often do you smile?

ID-10033425 photostock

Smiling is a behavior that is found in all human societies. We smile when we feel good, we smile when we are in love, we smile to reduce stress, to be more trustworthy, to produce empathy, we smile to kill pain, to gain attention, to be attractive, to gain success, and for many other reasons. I caught myself the other day, being way too serious, too tensed, no smiling at all. I guess that grown up worries are not the smile’s best friend. I wondered, how can I change this? Here is what I’ve found about smiling.  Read the rest of this entry »


D as in “Divorce” – Effects of the divorce on the children

David Castillo Dominici

Some years ago, people considered divorcing as very shameful and bad. It was far more acceptable to have a partner who was cheating on you (meaning the male partner) than to get a divorce, to destroy the family. Nowadays, we can observe that the trend is reversed: it is far more shameful to stay in a troubled marriage than to get a divorce. Read the rest of this entry »


Law of Attraction – The secret to attract love and balance into your life

ID-100115500 magerymajestic

Most of us (if not everyone) wish to find the „true love”. How can I find true love, you may ask. It is doable. You just have to wish hard for it and follow a few steps.

Step one: Imagine your life full of love and passion

Use the images that always impressed you and made you long for that particular kind of feeling. Then, imagine that this love is yours. Feel it, imagine how you’re live will be, full of love and passion. Don’t be afraid to imagine particularities like: eye color, height, hair color and texture, smell. Don’t ask yourself if you are „good enough” to get what you are wishing for. You are. Everyone is. Read the rest of this entry »


Without regrets!

A life full of worries and anxieties is not only hard, but it also can make us ill. Stop ruminating and keep going!

It is not easy to look ahead, but it is the best thing one can do. Most of us are often thinking about events that happened in the past, which cannot be changed. This attitude puts us in a bad mood and has a bad influence on our health. This is a certainly kind of stress as the result of repetitive regretful thoughts.

Especially young folks are concerned about the past. Older people have learned that they shouldn’t spend their lives with regrets. They are indeed remorseful, but they try to see the bright side of their experiences and not to repeat the mistakes. They don’t ask themselves „what if?”. This is a good approach. We can never know what would have happened if … This moment is gone forever. We cannot know which circumstances would have arised. But, we can influence what is to come. After we’ve acknowledged the error, we shall try and find that balance, which won’t allow us to repeat the mistake. Read the rest of this entry »


If tomorrow is the end of the world, what would you do today?

I guess not much.

What can I do in a day, if I couldn’t do it in a lifetime?

Could I live happier? Could I have spent more time with my family? Could I do everything that I procrastinated?

Would I be able to say: I am satisfied with my life as it is, I wouldn’t change a thing, I’m sorry it has to end everything tomorrow?

This is a good exercise for all who want to make a change in their lives, but do not know where to start. Read the rest of this entry »


Time travel

I sometimes wonder: what if time travel was possible? What would I do?

Would I be a simple observer or would I be the leading actress? Would I want to change things or would I simply want to relive things? Would I go forward or would I go back in time?

I would travel through time only if I could relive the good moments, feel the deep feelings I once had. I wouldn’t change things. Too many paradoxes are lurking. I don’t want to be God or a mighty power. The only exception would be my children. I would go through time, fire or else in order to save them from an unjust, premature fatality. I would not care if the universe would be destroyed, reversed or else. Read the rest of this entry »
