Smile, be kind and give back!
We are all busy and overwhelmed with daily issues and tasks regarding work, family, friends and ongoing activities. Sometimes it´s hard to stay kindly and relaxed. But a friendly, smiling attitude with respect improves our daily life miraculously! It´s incredible how often you will get a positive response if you are smiling and friendly. Try it every day at the supermarket, in the office, at school, in restaurants etc. The result is on top that all these people will also have a better feeling and next time you are very welcome at this place. Try it!
Go ahead and start with small acts of kindness like placing a cup of coffee on reserve for a homeless person, or giving away the gathered points in the supermarket – the little steps count! You will be an example for “a better world”.
Staying connected means to be an active part in your social community and is a powerful and positive way to get feedback in many areas. We all need appreciation and communicational exchange.
The movie “Intern” from the famous producer Nancy Meyers with Robert de Niro and Anne Hathaway is a perfect example how important it is to be connected with people in any stage of life: 70-year-old widower Ben Whittaker has discovered that retirement isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Seizing an opportunity to get back in the game, he becomes a senior intern at an online fashion site, founded and run by Jules Ostin.
This movie is such an inspiring and emotional example how positively impacts connectedness our lives. Being an active member in “life game”, talking to family and friends, having regularly communication, lifelong learning and staying open minded to all the fabulous and miraculous changes in the world is a guarantee for a more meaningful and active life!
The world was not better in former days – the world was only different in some way ….!

I´m really sorry – this is one of the hardest things to get but please try it! It´s life transforming!
Stop in going to mental vacations. Being present in THIS moment and love what you do!
“The past is history, the future is a mystery, and this moment is a gift. That is why this moment is called ‘the present’.”
