Thought for Today - All is Possible

What is your perspective to life, do you see things for what they are or do you understand that you see them most of the time from your (limited) point of view only? How do you perceive your circumstances, what do you think is possible right now?

Furious Curious Cancer Survivor Protocol

 The Furious Curious Cancer Survival Protocol no. II

431342_338761646158621_1851547743_nAm I a prescriptive kind of extreme persona with a closed mind? No, far from it.
However I believe that we would all benefit if we get hold of a book by a Scandinavian lady doctor called Kristine Nolfi, a pioneer of self healing who survived breast cancer by adopting a raw food diet. She was a children’s doctor in Denmark, the land of dairy farms,  who got a tumor in the 1950s and instinctively went on a raw diet and chose to live on the beach. All that sunshine vitamin overdose COMBINED WITH FOOD IN ITS NATURAL STATE was not even in fashion back then. She was probably aware of the work with raw food to restore health that was done in Switzerland for arthritis etc…

Sunday morning with fairies, mooncats and unicorns

Sunday’s art exhibit with Kate Fensom was an event I’d been looking forward to for so long, and an event that we’d been ‘meaning to’ organize for even longer. In the end it of course worked out the way it was ‘meant to be’ - perfectly. I had been admiring Kate’s work online ever since we’d met at an exhibition in her hometown Paphos several years ago and was ecstatic at the thought of her beautiful fairytale work gracing my walls.
 
The artist arrived in Limassol  early to give us time to get ready for the event, schedule for 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. It was a gloriously warm morning that felt more like spring than autumn as we started what was to be a most perfect day, happily chatting and arranging my bright and sunny living room - Kate in charge of the paintings, sets of cards, puzzles.... me of the tables, coffee cups, cake plates...

Thought for Today - The Power of Champions

Nothing beautiful or perfect happens in your life without you putting effort. Great achievements, success and contentment only enter your life when you consistently put practice and energy in all your actions.

Bach flower remedies, human resources and art

And yet another weekend of a wonderfully eclectic selection of events. On Friday we learned about the benefits of using homeopathic, plant essence based Bach flower remedies, on Saturday we got tips on a healthy working environment and on Sunday we got to dwell in wonderfully mystical art.

Thought for Today - Dare To Risk

Today is another gift to you to be open minded, respectful and to learn new things. Make today meaningful and be eager to listen, improving your wisdom and skills. Life is not about contentment but asks you to go for the challenge, getting things better and exploring the potential of your being which has no endings and beginnings.

Not your typical Sunday afternoon coffee chat

 

Sunday afternoon’s event was very busy and greatly  enjoyed by all - even though it was not your typical light-hearted coffee & cake conversation. We had Eva-Lena Hellmark, the manager of RightHere Cyprus Second Hand Shop, and several of her team members/volunteers telling us about the work they do under the umbrella of Wellspring Association to support victims of human trafficking.
 
RightHere is a second hand shop in the center of  Limassol (corner Anexartisias - St. Andrew’s Street) that is different. It is also a shop that wants to MAKE a difference. RightHere is part of Wellspring Association, a non-profit organization that is working for the support and restoration of individuals dealing with crises in their lives (due to prostitution, human trafficking, or other abusive and difficult situations) or who are in vulnerable/at-risk situations. Text taken from their Facebook page.

Thought for Today - Do You Like Your Own World?

How much do you respect yourself, care about your well- being and listening to your body. What kind of opinion do you have about your life, accomplishments and progress. It's so easy to talk about others knowing better or judging their actions. But is it respectful to see the wrong doings of others without first looking into your own life and actions?
