How this Works
So to start off today's post I am gonna share with you a short story that has been invaluable to me throughout my life.
It's a story that I have told many people at times when they were faced with great uncertainty.
You may be wondering does he really say things in real life, yup! I also9 constantly hand out awful, self improvement style quotes like:
Better to have a short pencil than a long memory. Some colleagues at work find it amusing, others likely just hate that weirdo with all the quotes, C'est la vie, right?
Each person chooses Hive for different reasons, I chose Hive at first to practice my writing skill which has helped me a lot in daily life. This weekend is still in lockdown here, therefore, I have time to review myself in writing and I would like to write down my personal advantages and hope they bring you some inspirations to continue your sharing here :)
Wanna ask me what is a staycation? The answer is simpler than your imagination! Or maybe you have already guessed it before I thought of an answer for this! Staycation comes from the contraction of “stay” and “vacation”. Yes, a staycation that basically invented by Americans, but we in Australia have been doing this for decades.
A few months ago, unexpectedly for myself, I suddenly decided to learn to draw, despite the fact that I have never done this. So I decided to sometimes take lessons from my artist friend. The first pictures were ... mmm, not very good, especially when I tried to paint with acrylics :) But I did not give up and decided to focus on pastels, dry and oily, and I started to get a little good. So now I already have a number of pictures to share, and a couple of those that turned out well (for me), my relatives even took away from me to hang them at home — of course, this is more as a sign of family feelings, but nevertheless it's nice 😅
Yesterday turned out to be the most productive and interesting. First of all, we got a chip from Bill Gates. That is, they were vaccinated with Pfizer products. And we got a very intelligent chip, because two hours after the ring we were sitting at the Odessa Opera House at a concert of organ music. I honestly admit that I am not a fan of such music, but it was a wonderful (and cheap) opportunity to visit this majestic building and look at it from the inside.
Even the feeling of fatigue and a sore arm after the injection could not stop this possibility.
Hello friends of the weekend I want to tell you that I really appreciate the concept of your community, of bringing to our minds those moments that were or will be enjoyable for us or how we would like a perfect weekend to be. Always positive.
Hello Hive community, there are many occasions where we give love, affection and attention to certain people in our lives and they do not appreciate it.
We exist people with a very high sense of empathy, cooperation and tolerance, we are able to put aside our needs to contribute to the welfare of others.
Of course without going to extremes it is not wrong to help others, however in life I have learned that we should not help those who do not ask for help because there are really very few cases in which they value it.
As well as with sadness I must tell you that I have also learned that there are people who do not deserve your love, regardless of how it is manifested.
My grandmother, despite married, living separately form her original family and a mother to two, she was still pressured to send money to her dad for another several years. After she started refusing, or in other words what our generation would call "putting up boundaries", she was excommunicated by her dad for two whole years. Whenever she visited her parents, her dad would shut her out, not talk to her and refuse her his blessing every time.
The very idea brings in the special feeling of satisfaction in your life. There are few lucky people who find things sooner and start to live with their passion. And for some it takes a while and may take whole while. When you see your passion is your work, you do not work for money. You work for making it perfect each time and the results follow.
It's been four months since my last garden blog when everything at Atmanna in #Bulgaria was just seeds in pots indoors, so a lot has changed. I was away for a month at a rainbow gathering in June/July but was fortunate enough to have @lio.ness, @awakening.soul and @mountainman taking care of the #garden between them in my absence.
Pictures below of some of the garden beds and plants.
