In the Middle of the Summer

In the middle of the summer stop for a second - and wait.
Feel the beauty of this moment.

In the middle of the summer stop your daily rush - and look around
See the variety of color and possibilities

In the middle of the summer stop for a second - and give your love
Give your love to someone special.

Live this moment in the middle of the summer:)


A Walk with God

Sometimes we need to take our time and to have a walk with God.
Sometimes we need to open our hearts and let love and compassion inside.
Sometimes we need this so much, that it is more important, than the air we breath.



Gratitude is not only the greatest of all virtues, but the parent of all others.

~Marcus Tullius Cicero

Gratitude changes you life - it makes you more aware - and it makes you life more complete.


Wisdom Is Daily Work

"No man was ever wise by chance."
~ Seneca


Look Inside

The place to improve the world
is first in one's own heart and head
and hands.

Simple Steps to Happiness

Everybody Knows,
You can’t be all things to all people.
You can’t do all things at once.
You can’t do all things equally well.
You can’t do all things better than everyone else.
Your humanity is showing just like everyone else’s.

You have to find out who you are, and be that.
You have to decide what comes first, and do that.
You have to discover your strengths, and use them.
You have to learn not to compete with others, because no one else is in the contest of “being you”.

You will have learned to accept your own uniqueness.
You will have learned to set priorities and make decisions.
You will have learned to live with your limitations.
You will have learned to give yourself the respect that is due.
And you’ll be a most vital mortal.

That you are a wonderful, unique person.
That you are a once-in all history event.
That it’s more than a right, it’s your duty, to be who you are.
That life is not a problem to solve, but a gift to cherish.
And you’ll be able to stay one up on what used to get you down.

Self Love

Love yourself! It is the most precious gift you can give to your soul, mind and body.
Only love can make your life real and worth of living.


Problem and Positive

New problem is a new way to look at you life with a positive side. Always remember that there is no bad and no good, life is colorful, you can always find something good even in the worst problem;)


Start Your Day with a Smile

If in our daily life we can smile, if we can be peaceful and happy, not only we, but everyone will profit from it. If we really know how to live, what better way to start the day than with a smile? Our smile affirms our awareness and determination to live in peace and joy. The source of a true smile is an awakened mind.
~ Thich Nhat Hanh


Tiny Effort Power

"Be the change you want to see in the world."
~ Mahatma Ganghi

... and remember that even the tiny effort has enough power to change the whole Universe!


True Love

True love is real...and it is free. You can't hold it... You can't make it just yours. You can't rule it. You can't put it in a cage...
You can let it in your life and enjoy every single moment of it. You can let it go and it will come when it's time to come.
You can make your life the best place for love and ask it to come. And wait... and be thankful...
and love....



Everything that you are thinking about today, was already said and thought... Every new miracle you see was a miracle thousands years ago. Life is simple. You can explain it in few words. You can feel it in one single moment. Look inside - the answer is here


Gold Middle

Harmony is to find gold middle in your life and to find time for all importnat things. But you should be sure about these things. You should find your priorities and organize our lime and your life to do the most important and pleasant things.
But, don't forget about harmony...


Pink Sunglasses

Sometimes all you need to feel good is to wear your favorite pink sunglasses;)


When You Are Different

You are different. You are not like everyone in the crowd. You can see things different. You can feel different. You thoughts are different. Your dreams are different. Someone may think you are strange, but you are just different. It is not bad, it is not good, it is just different


Make a Wish

"When you seek it, you cannot find it."

And when you let it go, it comes back to you, with love and grace...
How difficult it is to let it go...
What a pleasure it is to let it go...


Meaning of Life

Isn't it simple and right?;)


Look for the Good Side

We need to look for the good side, even if everything is very bad.


To Do or to Think?

My friend says that thinking is the same as doing...I can disagree with him. We are made of our actions. Thoughts are important, that is true, because our thoughts lead to our actions. But if you wanted to steal something, but didn't do it, does it mean that you are a thief. If you wanted to cheat, but stopped? does it mean that you are a cheater? And if you wanted to be successful but did nothing towards it, does it mean that you are successful?
Thoughts is nothing without action, and action is useless without thoughts...
There is harmony somewhere...


The Rules of Life

Life is different...there is always another way to look at things.....


Fear Is Your Friend?

Do you have any fears? Fear of mistake? Fear of failure? Fear of bad words of emotions? We all have fears...But how can fear be our friend? Yes, you can face your fear and destroy it, but you can do even more - you can ask your fear some questions - because our biggest fears are about our most important things in life. Fear is a confusion about your goal, is is not clear vision - you can change your fear into the plan of realizing your goal. Just don't be afraid to learn more about this problem and about yourself.


Marriage and Responsibility

"Marriages may be made in Heaven but a lot of the
details have to be worked out here on Earth"

~Gloria Pitzer

Marriage is a great responsibility, and it is a great work, but how pleasant this work is:)


The Greatest Responsibility

Have you ever thought that you are responsible for the whole world? That our world’s development and evolution depends on you? On your ability to use your divine energy…
If you just imagine this for a moment? You will feel how wonderful is your life, and how big is your responsibility to realize your talent and your dreams – because the world’s future depends on you… Even the smallest thought can change the world… Think about it!


Be Grateful

The great way to start your day is to say "Thank you" to the world for all you have in your life.

Life and Death

If you look carefully, you can see that Death is very beautiful. Death helps us to see the beauty of life. It is the beginning of new life, it's a big beautiful change...

Wonderful 5 Minutes

It's so nice when you can spend 5 minutes with your soul:) and enjoy yourself and enjoy your heart song:) Thank you, my 5 minutes:)


What Is Your Heart Like?

Beautiful video! Great inspiration for Sunday:)


Leaving Your Prints...

Love is like standing on wet cement, the longer you stay the harder it is to leave...and you can never go without leaving your prints behind...



Passion is a beautiful feeling, it is very powerful, but it can turn off easy...It can sound strange, but passion is very delicate...


Sense of Life

Yesterday my friend called and asked me "What is the sense of life?" I was a bit confused and couldn't answer at once. Today I started to think about this question. What is the sense of life? As for me the sense of life is to live the life with aim. It is to live the life not only for yourself but for other people and for the whole world. I can repeat what I was saying at my training - everybody needs to live for something bigger then he or she is. That is a sense of life... for me:)

Success of Failure?

What do we call success? Can it be that our biggest failure transforms into the greatest success? Can it be that anything negative becomes positive? Is there anything negative at all?


Wind of Change

"Sometimes in the winds of change
we find our true direction."

Every change is a new opportunity....



There is no way to Peace
Peace is the way


The Pure Heart: Mother Teresa

"When I pick up a person from the street, hungry, I give him a plate of rice, a piece of bread.
But a person who is shut out, who feels unwanted, unloved, terrified, the person who has been thrown out of society –
That spiritual poverty is much harder to overcome.
Those who are materially poor can be very wonderful people.

One evening we went out and we picked up four people from the street.
And one of them was in a most terrible condition.
I told the Sisters:
“You take care of the other three; I will take care of the one who
Looks worse.” So I did for her all that my love can do.
I put her in bed,
And there was such a beautiful smile on her face.
She took hold of my hand,
As she said one word only: “Thank you” — and she died.
I could not help but examine my conscience before her.
And I asked: “What would I say if I were in her place?“
And my answer was very simple.
I would have tried to draw a little attention to myself.
I would have said: “I am hungry,
I am dying, I am cold, I am in pain, or something.
But she gave me much more — she gave me her grateful love.
And she died with a smile on her face.
Then there was the man we picked up from the drain, half-eaten
By worms and, after we had brought him to the home, he only said,
“I have lived like an animal in the street, but I am going to die as an angel, loved and cared for.”
Then, after we had removed all the worms from his body,
All he said, with a big smile, was: “Sister, I am going home to God” — and he died.

It was so wonderful to see the greatness of that man who could
Speak like that without blaming anybody, without comparing anything.
Like an angel — this is the greatness of people who are spiritually
Rich even when they are materially poor…."

~ Mother Teresa


World in a Grain of Sand

To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.


Waves of Life

One evening a young woman went alone to walk barefoot by the ocean after the sun had set. She stopped in her path and turned so she could see the footsteps she had left in the sand. But they had already been washed away by the waves. When she turned to continue her walk, she was startled by the presence of an old woman wrapped in a blanket who out of nowhere appeared sitting by a fire, slowly paging through the leaves of a leather covered book.

She walked up to the woman and asked. "Where did you come from? I didn't see you here a moment ago. And how did you start this fire so quickly?"

Her questions went unanswered but were instead met with a reply in a serene voice, "Sit with me, child. I have something to show you."

As the young woman sat down beside the fire, the mysterious stranger handed her the book. She curiously turned the pages one by one and was amazed to discover they contained the story of her whole life from the early days of childhood to the present. She then came to the page telling of her encounter with the old woman by the fire during her walk on the beach, but upon turning to the next page, she found it empty. She frantically began to turn the rest of the pages in the book only to find that they, too, were all empty. In bewilderment, she looked to the old woman and pleaded with her to explain.

"Does this mean my life ends this night?"

"No, my child. It means tonight your life begins."

At that moment the old woman took the book into her own hands and began to tear out each of the pages with words, throwing them one by one into the fire until all that was left were blank pages.

She handed the book of empty pages to the young woman.

"You see," she said, "just as the waves washed away your footsteps in the sand, your past is forever gone, never to return. The only moment you ever truly possess is here and now. Each new moment is the beginning of the rest of your life and is to be lived to the fullest, for you will not have a chance to live that moment a second time. Most important of all, each new day brings an opportunity to love--one that may never come to you again.

"As for your future, you are free to shape it as you wish, for it has not yet been written."

Then, as mysteriously as she had appeared, the old woman stood to walk away and disappeared into the darkness of the night.

Excerpt from the book, For Love or Nothing

Sunrise of Life

Every sunrise brings us a new day, a new life, new possibilities. Every morning we can see the magic of life. Isn’t that enough to be happy?

In Focus.

Why is it important to be focused? What about spontaneous actions and freedom in your life? I was thinking a lot on these questions. I can say that being spontaneous doesn’t mean being oblivious. Concentration helps us to feel the taste of every moment. To understand what color every minute has. This is magical feeling – being focused and concentrated.
Why photography is an art? Because photographer is a magician that can capture beautiful moment from the rush of life. And the secret of this magic is to be focused on a moment.


Take Care of the Moments

"If we take care of the moments, the
years will take care of themselves."

~Maria Edgeworth

So true:) This moment is beautiful:)


The Beauty Of A Woman

The beauty of a woman Is not in the clothes she wears,
The figure that she carries, Or the way she combs her hair.

The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes,
Because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.

The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole,
But true beauty in a woman Is reflected in her soul.

It is the caring that she lovingly gives,
The passion that she shows,
And the beauty of a woman
With passing years only grows.

~ Author Unknown

The beauty is inside us, you just need sometimes to look a little bit deeper...



The art of happiness is not to be happy when you have all reasons for happiness.
The art of happiness is to find a reason to be happy when there is no reasons.
The art of happiness is mostly unreasonable.

Black and White

What is the color of your life? Black or white? It's up to you to choose...
Someday we stay on a black side, someday on a white... But is it all?

“Color is black and white put together”

It's funny to understand that there is no just black and white. There is a great variety of shades and colors. Who choose what color is the best for you? I guess, just you...


I've Learned...

Great message from my friend:

I’ve learned—that we don’t have to change friends if we understand that friends change.

I’ve learned—that no matter how good a friend is, they’re going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.

I’ve learned—that true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance.
Same goes for true love.

I’ve learned—that you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.

I’ve learned—that it’s taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.

I’ve learned—that you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

I’ve learned—that you can keep going long after you think you can’t.

I’ve learned—that we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

I’ve learned—that either you control your attitude or it controls you.

I’ve learned—that regardless of how hot and steamy a relationship is at first, the passion fades and there had better be something else to take its place.

I’ve learned—that heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.

I’ve learned—that money is a lousy way of keeping score.

I’ve learned—that my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time.

I’ve learned—that sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you’re down, will be the ones to help you get back up.

I’ve learned—that sometimes when I’m angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn’t give me the right to be cruel.

I’ve learned—that just because someone doesn’t love you the way you want them to doesn’t mean they don’t love you with all they have.

I’ve learned—that maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you’ve had and what you’ve learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you’ve celebrated.

I’ve learned—that it isn’t always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.

I’ve learned—that no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn’t stop for your grief.

I’ve learned—that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.

I’ve learned—that just because two people argue, it doesn’t mean they don’t love each other.
And just because they don’t argue, it doesn’t mean they do.

I’ve learned—that you shouldn’t be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.

I’ve learned—that two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.

I’ve learned—that your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don’t even know you.

I’ve learned—that even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you, you will find the strength to help.

I’ve learned—that credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.

I’ve learned—that the people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon.


Today we had a walk in a park and there were many blooming magnolias. These trees have something unusual about them.

Maybe, it is because of their age. Magnolia is one of the oldest plants on the planet. I guess it has a lot of memories. Maybe, that's why when you look at magnolia tree you feel that your life is just one among many others, and your problems as well.

You look at yourself with memories of the world. It makes you feel small and great at once.

Magnolias remind us what is really important and what is not. A lot of things happen around us, but every year in April you can see magnolias bloom.



We need enjoy the moments of happiness. When we achieve something important we need celebrate. Life consists of such moments. Never miss them!


Find Time

Find time for working - it brings you success
Find time for thinking - it makes you strong

Find time for game- it is a secret of your youth

Find time for books - it gives you knowledge
Find time for friends - it makes you happy

Find time for dreams - it is a way to your heart

Find time for love - it is a pure joy of life
Find time for happiness - it is a music for your soul

About Time and Planning

"Planning is bringing the future into the present
so that you can do something about it now."

~Alan Lakein

Today we had out first training lesson. We planned it and we did it. Out plans become our reality. You just should to set your goals and move towards them.


When You Come to the Edge...

When you come to the edge of all that you know, you must believe one of two things: There will be earth upon which to stand, or you will be given wings to fly.

~Author Unknown

Doesn't it make you fly?

Again about Love:)

"Love is about going that extra mile even if it hurts, letting it all hang out there. Love is about finding courage inside of you that you didn’t even know was there."

Dream of a Lizard

I want to become a lizard. To sit on the sunny stone and relax. I want to run very fast and play with my long tail. I want to sit on someones hand and think "How strange people are". I want to look around and dream about hot summer days. I want to dream about juicy insects and songs of the grass and flowers. I want to become a lizard...just for a while...


Truly, we live with mysteries too marvelous
to be understood.

How grass can be nourishing in the
mouths of the lambs.
How rivers and stones are forever
in allegiance with gravity
while we ourselves dream of rising.
How two hands touch and the bonds
will never be broken.
How people come, from delight or the
scars of damage,
to the comfort of a poem.

Let me keep my distance, always, from those
who think they have the answers.

Let me keep company always with those who say
"Look!" and laugh in astonishment,
and bow their heads.

~ Mary Oliver ~


Happy Road

Roads of life are so different. It's up to you to choose where to go. Then why not to choose your happy road where is sunshine and joy?;)


Love is about ....

Love is about making stupid things together...
Love is about saying Good Morning
Love is about silent understanding
Love is about common dreams
Love is about your sweet kiss
Love is about life with meaning
Love is about caring and giving...

Love is about being with you.

Tiny Treasure

Every tiny flower is a mirror of the beauty of the whole Universe. For someone flower is a whole world. For someone you are more important then the whole Universe. You are the reflection of gorgeous beauty of the world around you. You are this beauty.

Beautiful Pain

Every feeling has its own taste and it has its own beauty. Beauty of pain is very special. It's like slow knife cutting your soul but not killing you. It is very light and powerful at once. Sometimes you just need to feel it. Sometimes you are even looking for it.


Without Words

We use clever words, we learn different facts, but in life everything is much more simple to make it so complicated. Sometimes it's enough to close your eyes and look in your soul.
Today I can hear music....:)


This song is something unbelievable. Some people are blessed with talent, and this guy is really blessed. I wish him luck at Eurovision and I hope he will stay such a beautiful soul as he is!


Colorful Life!

Received this via stumbleupon from my friend:)
Gorgeous shot:))) Makes me smile:))
