DOORS

Helen Keller said: “When one door closes, another one opens” which is absolutely true. The problem is that we tend to watch the closed door forever and totally miss the open door (new opportunity).

THE SELF

Know Thyself Knowing others, one is learned; Knowing thyself, one is enlightened. Conquering others requires force; Conquering oneself requires strength.

Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching, XXXIII New times have come and thisContinue reading “THE SELF”

STRESS part 4

Stress eats us alive and we don’t even notice it. Our warning-systems have been working overtime for so long, we don’t hear them anymore.
