the illusion of greatness

We live in a social network world, and we tend to measure success by what we see. If we see images of an happy family, we instantly think they are happy, even if they’re not. Social networks give us the illusion that we have a window into other people lives, but we miss the fact […]

Nothing changes on new year’s eve

Every new year there’s a spike in divorces right after New Year’s Eve. It’s not because we cheat on dec 31st, it’s because we’re fooled again by the fact that we can seek a new start by changing the outside conditions. A new watch, a new job, a new wife. They can change part of […]

Embrace the unexpected

Always embrace the unexpected, the unknown. Not all things come to do harm, many are a path to a change you needed to make anyway. Embrace it, try to feel if this new road works for you, test it out before you refuse it. You might not know what’s behind the things you don’t like.

Some time alone

I never thought that going out for a walk to dispose of the trash would be so magic. But it was indeed. I look forward to it, I put my earphones on and do a small walk to the trash bins outside. 5 to 10 minutes of slow walking, usually at night, with the empty […]

Letting things heal

Some things heals like wound in a body. They take time. Relationships, friendships, they do need time and space to grow, to change, to improve. Your effort won’t be repaid fast, it might as well be paid when it’s not the right time. But as you can guess we cannot control this. What we can […]

Untold stories

Everything has a story, one that’s visible in plain sight, one that’s hidden below the words, under the clear ground. It’s the reason why when we talk to people we omit our emotions, we don’t talk about them out loud, we don’t show them. We hide them because it’s easy, because we are not used […]

what you can’t do

Being able to do something is often a matter of perspective. There are many things that seem impossible, but some people can do it. Are they magician? No, they simply figured out how to do it. When we say “I can’t do it” beforehand we’re expressing our little hope in the outcome, the fact that […]
