Short version:Enjoy life!
I initially started this web site to avoid sending pictures via e-mail
because the number of my friends I wanted to share my pictures with got
bigger and bigger.
Now it is time to bring this site to the next level. Most of my family
and friends are overseas or across the country, or just don't see me that
often. On this page I want to share some thoughts with those of you who
don't see me on a regular basis. Over the past years I learned a lot, and
I would like to share that. We are all teachers and students, and the more
we can learn and teach, the sooner this world will become a peaceful one.
Be honest to people around you and most importantly to
yourself. I know from my past how easy it is to be dishonest with
yourself. Listen to your inner voice even though it might not always be
the simplest path it suggests. It will be worth it.
If you are
dishonest to people around you, it makes your life more complicated than
it has to be, and it makes you vulnerable. If you don't have anything to
hide, how can people hurt you? If they still try, you laugh, and you are
just sorry for them, because you know it better.
If you only know me from this site, you might think
that all I do is party. Well, not that I don't party a lot, but there is
more to my life. I take my work very seriously. When the alarm clock rings
on Monday morning, and you don't feel fit enough to go to work, then - my
friend - you are partying too much. Nobody can tell you what to do. You
are the only one who is responsible for you life. Listen to your body. Be
It is incredible how we members of western societies
and religions managed to complicate our life unnecessarily. Drama,
problems, lies, guilt, ……WHY? These are unpleasant things and situations.
If you can change them, change them. If not, embrace them. I am sure you
will learn something from them. If nothing else, you can learn how to live
with them. Just don't suffer and stress. Happiness is in us. An old lady
said to me once. "I wish you good health, because it is the most important
thing in life". I remember saying. "Wish me happiness. Health, we cannot
always choose, but happiness we can, and nobody can take it away from
us." I know that it is not fun to be sick, but sometimes it just
happens, and we have to deal with it whether we want to or not. Anyways, I
am drifting off. There is always a reason to enjoy life. Having heard what
other people had to suffer with, most of us have absolutely no reason to
complain. Unfortunately a lot of people have to go through really hard and
painful periods of their life to figure that out. I was lucky that thanks
to great teachers, I did not have to experience much pain myself. Still,
it was the most uncomfortable times in life that taught me most.
For some reason we are more obsessed with the fact that
we need rather than giving it. We are longing to be loved. Giving love is
much more important. You cannot only give love to your partner, but to
others too. Don't expect anything back, and believe me, you will get it
back. What does giving love mean? Respect one another. Listen to one
another. Want others to be happy. Sometimes more is expected than you can
give, but give what you can give, and hopefully the other person will

Take care of your body. Treat it like a car, the vehicle for your soul. It
needs gas, oil, and regular service. Wouldn't we all rather drive a nice
sports car than an old Saturn? (haha) I am the living proof that you
change your vehicle into a sporty one. Just look at the section 'A blast
from the past' and compare. Have it checked out regularly by
professionals, and if something is not working properly, have it fixed,
and don't stress or panic about it. Insiders know what I am talking about.
Some things cannot be fixed, so you have to drive on with some cosmetic
faults. Your friends will still like you.
I could go on, but it is enough for now.
Your feedback is highly appreciated.
