Do what makes you happy! In work, vacation, downtime, life decisions, social time, and everything else! You are the expert of your own life. As much as I love the work of counsellors, social workers, and psychologists, none of them can make you happy and give you the answers. As long as they are good at what they do, they are there to help you find that motivation and confidence inside of you to find your own happiness, peace, direction, and inspiration.
Just because some people like to identify themselves as realistic, that does not mean that realism equates to negativity. Some people like to confuse a realistic view on their lives, especially when things aren’t going well for them, with a negative and pessimistic view on life. It’s true, there are negative things that happen in life. However, positive people do not ignore the negativity that may be out there. They make the conscious decision to choose positivity over negativity in the hopes that this effort will make a change for the better. Your view on life is up to you. Make it negative. Or make it positive. Both are realistic as long as you believe it. Life is all about perception and belief.
“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”
These words were inscribed above the entrance to the temple of Apollo a Delphi, site of the sacred Oracle in ancient Greece. People would visit the Oracle hoping to find out what destiny has in store for them or what course of action to take in a particular situation. The translation comes to mean “Know Thyself” in other words, before you ask yourself any other questions, first ask the most fundamental question of life: Who am I? That is the question that should precede any question or concern about what destiny has in store for you or what course of action to take in a particular situation. Take influence from this ancient teaching.
Στην υγεία μας.

Posts aren’t coming out as often as they used to, the Thankful Thursdays and Saturday Sayings sometimes become “I forgot it so its now Thankful Sunday”, and in general content has slowed down this summer. I love my website and posting on here, but the reason things have slowed down this summer is because the Greek Guru guy was on vacation in…Greece! What a surprise right? He’s Greek and he’s on vacation in Greece. 🙂 Continue reading
