Positive Psychology

A few weeks ago I decided to invest in expanding my knowledge in an area that is super dear and interesting to me- Positive Psychology, by taking a six module online course. One of the best ways to consolidate knowledge is to share it and it would also make me super happy to know that I`ve had even the smallest positive influence in your lives, so here we go- in the next weeks I will be sharing interesting insights from the course. It will be really great if you could also share your views on the topic, so we can have a discussion around this fascinating and so relevant topic! Each of the posts will be accompanied by pictures that I took that evoke happiness and in me which hopefully will light up a little happy spark in you as well.

Three stories by Steve Jobs

One of the most inspirational speaches of all times is the commencement speech of Steve Jobs in Stanford university in 2005. 

In a simple yet inspiring way he shares three stories from his life that teach us how importand it is to follow your heart and  be true to yourself.  

Every time I watch him I feel happy to be alive and energized to be myself and take action to do the things that I love. I am confident that it will have the same effect on you- enjoy!

30 Day Photo Diary: Day 12- A story about education

Independently on the location, culture and religion, there are always common elements that unite people. One of them is education. India is not one of the countries where education is neglected – on the contrary, it is my impression that it is very high on the agenda and it seemed to be especially so in Kerala. All of the children in the village where I was staying were going to school from morning until late afternoon always wearing their uniforms. It was always fun to meet them during my walks when they would surround me and ask me all sorts of questions– a bunch of energized chirpy little birds flying free in the green Keralan lushness. Minu was one of the shiest and the most charming ones of them.

I met her on the way to her house in a late summer afternoon. She was coming back from school and was initially very shy, but after a while felt more at ease and even agreed to show me the content of her notebook. It was really admirable to see how much people in the village appreciated the value of education and how they were eager to invest in the future of their children rather than make them work which happens at many other places. Minu is a bright girl and one day she can be a doctor, an engineer or an artist – actually anything that she wants to be. Fingers crossed that she has the wisdom to study well, listen to her heart and make her dreams come true. But bottom line- she`s set for success by making it to school every day.
