Replay (Note to self)

 

I remember when my daughters loved to spend hours watching their movies on DVD over and over again.

They actually watched the same movie two or three times in a row. They had a whole collection of different titles for children and they loved them all.

Each girl had their favourite, and those I had to watch with them sometimes until I could repeat every line of every character by heart.

Fortunately, once they had watched those movies a trillion times, new ones came out and then they moved to the new stories.

Nowadays they have grown up a little, and they no longer watch one movie several times in a day. (well… not very often anyway). Continue reading

Your life is a game

 

Listening to people of different age groups I have realised that every stage in our lives has its own uncertainties and tests.

When I was younger I thought that once you reached certain age you would know everything you need to just live your life without problems.

As I have reached different stages in my personal path, I have learned that we never get to the point of knowing everything we thought we would learn and I am so happy for that, for learning is one of the highest pleasures of life.

We keep changing every day and our needs and wishes evolve with us as well.

What we need to learn right now is right in front of us and we decide if we want to see it or not. Continue reading

Your best friend

I know we all talk “bad” about ourselves from time to time: “I am so stupid!”, “how silly of me…”,” Man! I am so clumsy.” And so on.

Sometimes without even realising we keep “insulting” ourselves the whole day. And although our conscious mind wouldn´t pay much attention on it, our subconscious mind does.

Thus creating our “hidden” programming.

A friend of mine (who once was my math teacher as well) was an excellent tennis player.  He trained after his classes 5 or 6 hours every day.

But out of a “fake modesty” he began to underestimate his own abilities when talking to other people. He told me he felt bad talking in a good way about his game. He didn’t want to sound boastful or arrogant. So he began to talk “bad” about his skills. Continue reading

What they say

He was in shock! He couldn´t believe his ears. This old and well-dressed woman had just used the worst vocabulary he had heard in years. Even an old truck driver would feel ashamed with the words this woman had uttered against him and (I am not implying that all truck drivers have a bad vocabulary, I know some who read a lot and are well educated). But my friend was furious.

If we lost our memory when we went to sleep, the same way a computer erases its RAM (Random access memory) as soon as the electricity stops flowing through its circuits, we would have a new beginning every morning.

Although that would have some advantages, it would be something terrible to live because we would have to relearn everything once more every morning and then we wouldn’t have any advance unless we wouldn’t sleep again. So the whole idea is totally impractical.

But what would be very interesting is finding a way to “erase” some concepts and ideas that keep us doing the same mistakes over and over again.
