I know, I know! The first impulse is to throw rotten eggs in this title because we both know it’s not true (at least, most of the time). So the question now is: when doing nothing is the hardest thing to do? I think this is related to having control over the situation because that’s... Continue Reading →
If you don't live somewhere alone, isolated from others, then you see people and you notice them and their behavior. The question is: how often do you judge them based on their behavior and how often do you seek and try to understand the reason behind that behavior? One of my biggest beliefs is that...

Even though I haven’t written anything about movies as I did last year, I remained a huge movies fan. Last night I watched The Two Popes, a recent movie directed by Fernando Meirelles, where I heard the quote “Small pleasures are important”. This made me think about how important they really are and why we... Continue Reading →
If you think about the time you spend daily, how much of it is for short-term goals and how much of it is for long-term goals and why?
How different is your life now compared to the beginning of the year? PS: If my writings mean something to you and if you feel you can learn anything from me, check out my book (Fighting the Inside Dragons) on Amazon in both Kindle and Paperback format!
The human behavior is so unpredictable that understanding seems impossible from time to time. If you have a quick look world-wide, you'll soon realize there are so many situations that seem SF, you'll feel the need to double-check if you're watching a movie or not. So today I'll mention my two fears that rule them... Continue Reading →
On a daily basis, what kind of thoughts make you sad? PS: If my writings mean something to you and if you feel you can learn anything from me, check out my book (Fighting the Inside Dragons) on Amazon in both Kindle and Paperback format!
This is a deep topic and I hope I’m as close to ready as I can for approaching it, so let’s jump into it. In the past three years I got very interested in self-development and I noticed a pattern across all motivational speakers: they all talk about finding your passion and following your destiny....

As always, I’m interested about the reason behind every human behavior and there is one answer that covers everything: the inner universe. The most interesting part about our inner universe is that we barely get to know it, and when we do know parts of it, we often go in the opposite direction. I believe... Continue Reading →
I should say that I’m currently working on a new book, but if I’m honest, I must admit that I’m not working on it at all. The sad part is that the most of it is done since May this year and I haven’t open any of the documents ever since. Why? That’s a great... Continue Reading →
Provided by ellieejay My first international class in Guatemala, followed by a semester in London, then a semester in Granada… and what do I have to say for myself? I’ve learned nothing. Contrary to popular belief and folktales told by previous students who have studied internationally, living abroad for 5 months does not make you... Continue Reading →
Today I’m going to share a story about how my own brain f*cked me hard, together with a pair of wet jeans (I promise it’s different than anything you can imagine!) Many many years ago when I was just a young boy (I think I was about 13 years old), my family and I had... Continue Reading →
Pain, truth, thoughts, emotions and everything our fragile bodies carry has a place in this world. Any demon can be defeated with the proper company and with the proper weapons and that’s why this blog exists. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and feelings with us. Thank you for spending (or investing) some of your... Continue Reading →
*Attention! This is going to be a brutal post!* From all the things we have in this world, there is one that rules them all (and no, it’s not the one ring). There is something that has the ability to control anything and anyone, if leveraged correctly. People tend to do anything for this, regardless... Continue Reading →
These three aspects seem to be so well delimited that it’s hard to believe they co-exist inside of us all the time. Even though yesterday seems to be over and that tomorrow is yet to come, we do think and behave now based on yesterday and tomorrow. Wanna hear how this got into my mind... Continue Reading →
Today’s a pretty rough day because I barely slept last night. And it’s not like I did anything… I only had a constant thought-flow with things that could go bad in my life (that and the fact that one of my cats made strange noises all night long). The thoughts were so bad that I... Continue Reading →
Don’t worry, that “vs” is just for show. It’s not a battle, but there are differences, especially if we think about what “reality” really means. Have you ever searched for what Wikipedia says about reality? Here it is: “Reality is the sum or aggregate of all that is real or existent, as opposed to that which... Continue Reading →
