Brass Balls!


Hi there!


Life itself is your teacher, and you are in
a state of constant learning .

Life is never stagnation.  It is constant
movement, un-rhythmic movement, as we
as constant change.  Things live by moving
and gain strength as they go .

Always be yourself, express yourself, have
faith in yourself, do not go out and look for
a successful personality and duplicate it. .

Absorb what is useful, discard what is not,
add what is uniquely your own .

Choose the positive.  You have choice, you
are master of your attitude, the constructive.
Optimism is a faith that leads to success.

                                     Bruce Lee    1940 – 1973

In our life we are surrounded by stressful
and annoying situations, which test our
resilience and dynamism as well as our
positivity and mental strength.

Most often we have to work very hard to
establish healthy habits and embrace
all-powerful and effective core beliefs.

This is the only way to overcome the
obstacles and interferences coming our
way every single day, and cultivate a
successful, happy and rewarding life.

Developing mental strength, courage
and endurance will help you to build a
shield to keep going against the frustrations
and hardships of life.
You will be able to
endure, pursue and
carry on no matter 
what happens.

Hi there!


Izzy woke up this morning feeling very strange.
She stretched, got up slowly and
looked herself in
the wardrobe mirror when…
“oh my God, I look so tired”  she exclaimed.

This is not the first time she was catching her
reflection and thinking,  “I’m really
struggling here!”
Her eyes were puffy, her hair was awful and her body
shape was not perfect in
any way.

But she had already decided some time ago now,
not to be interested in what other
people thought of her.
She didn’t care
about their opinion any more.

“I’m not really concerned in looking perfect any longer.
I’ve abandoned
this long and painful pursuit for perfection;
so now I feel good within
myself — I’m free and relaxed, at last.
I know I don’t look my best, but life continues and I have to follow…..”

Law and Order


Peaceful means to be calm in your heart.
You need to cut out all the
worried thoughts in your head and
replace them with inner serenity.

Most people are in a state of endless unrest.
The following suggestions will help quiet an anxious mind:


1)    Stop caring about what everyone else thinks.
Give priority to what is
important to you, and reject
is not right for you.


2)    Do not worry about perfection, because nothing in
life is perfect.
Be grateful for what you have now.


3)    Accept and love yourself for what you are and
where you are.
Only then
you will feel positive, joyful and relaxed.


4)    Negative life changes are very painful, but realise
that something new
and better is on its way.
Life changes
every minute, and you have to follow and
adjust if you want to succeed.


5)    Accept what is and you will be really happy.
Adjust your attitude
and the way you react to things and
you will eliminate all stress from your life.


6)    Ignore negativity around you, and ask yourself if
it is really true.
See the
good side of everything, smile and think positively.
Keep your mind open
and you will  be peaceful.


7)    Realize that people who criticize others as well as
everything around them are telling
their own story.


8)    Letting go of things  or people means you are strong
enough to embrace the present.

Bed Of Roses


Freedom is to realise that you do not have to agree with
everything or everyone else,
and the opposite.

Patience is the ability we have to feel good while working
for what we want to succeed.

If you catch yourself worrying, immediately say “STOP”;
otherwise you will suffer what
you worry about.
Then take a meditative
walk focusing on the earth under your feet.

Peace and happiness are states of mind, and they require
effort to be achieved.
Peace of mind must be your highest and deepest goal.

Stay in Peace!!




Per Aspera Ad Astra!




I have been discussing the subject of retirement and
reinvention for some time now.
It is the most important subject, especially for women
in their 50s and 60s, because these decades a new
life cycle begins.

The question “what will I do for the next twenty five
years?” is in people’s minds — and it really is a very
long time to be inactive.

Retiring from whatever you have been doing for the
last twenty five years is puzzling; but most importantly
you have to be emotionally prepared.

Even so, it will still take a minimum of a two year
transitional period to re-adjust to your new life.
You will go through a number of phases until you
finally sink into your new life pattern.




The Return


The secret for an effective reinvention is to set quality goals.
Goals keep us focused, motivated and interested.
We have something to believe in and look forward to.

Make a list with the following suggestions, and you can
add or remove, depending on what you like doing.

1)   Travelling to places you have never been before.
2)   Change the interior decoration of your house.
3)   Involve yourself with the community.
4)   Volunteer for something you enjoy.
5)   Get a part time job in the field of your choice.
6)   Change the design of your garden.
7)   Learn a foreign language or any other course.
8)   Look after your health as a hobby.
9)   Take up writing.
10)   Pursue fitness in a health club.
11)   Take up cooking or baking.
12)   Develop new friendships.
13)   Become more spiritual.

Living Power


The next three rules are vital to your moving forward
in a productive way.

This point in your life is a period of losses, like

your youth and your best appearance;
but do not forget that now is the time to get rid
of all previous expectations about yourself and
Start feeling relaxed, free and independent.

b) Now this is the stage when almost all people say
“I do not care”;
and it includes friends, colleagues, family and
Now is the right time to say “NO”.

c) Finally this is the time to develop self awareness.
Start being conscious of your own existence
separate from the other people.
Concentrate to your own feelings, thoughts,
behaviours and traits.



Favourable Outcome


(I) In order to succeed in your new life you do need
to be very enthusiastic about your goals.
You need to commit yourself and focus.
Whatever your goal is, even if you decide to do
nothing, you have to be excited about it.
Enthusiasm equals success.

(II) Remember this is a transitional period and it will
take a long time, so you need to be very patient.
This is going to be a long journey until you find
your own sense of purpose, and you need to give
time to adapt yourself.

Patience is a virtue.
