“A year from now you may wish you had started today.” ~Karen Lamb

What things did you start a year ago that you’re glad you started back then? If nothing comes to mind it’s high time you start something today that you can be proud of a year from now. If you’ve already got something in the works, project things out a year from now and imagine how excited you’ll be that you already got it going. A year is a long enough time to see some real progress in your efforts, and you are often enjoying the fruits of your labors from a year ago or more. Start something today if you don’t have any irons in the fires.

“The road to Easy Street goes through the sewer.” ~John Madden

easy street

It’s often enticing to dream of Easy Street as having finally made it. But Madden reminds that it’s no picnic getting there, and you have to pay your dues. Things do become easier, but you may have to put up with a lot of stinky situations before getting there. Most people will give up before getting there, and spend too much time in the sewer, thinking that Easy Street is just a pipe dream. But the unpleasant parts are just a way of weeding out those that really want the prize from those that only talk about wanting it.

“Dream big and dare to fail.” ~Norman Vaughan

Having small dreams and being afraid to fail is the antithesis of this advice, and it’s something many of us do, even though we may not want to admit it. The two go hand in hand, if you are too afraid of failing you’ll keep your dreams on a leash. But if you overcome that fear, and jump out there fully willing to completely fail, you free your mind to dream up new adventures and goals for your life. Failure comes with trying, and a life of not trying will not leave you satisfied, so it’s good to continually put yourself out there.

terrific tea plantations

If u drink a tea it’s probably not grown in America or Europe. If you live in the USA  or Europe area then it’s a pretty safe bet that you don’t have a terrific view of a tea plantation.  In fact its a pity because its really beautiful. Grab yourself some tea, if you are so inclined, while you view these terrific tea plantations. “If you are cold, tea will warm you. If you are too heated, it will cool you. If you are depressed, it will cheer you. If you are excited, it will calm you.” ~ quote by William Gladstone..

Если вы пьете чай то он проблематично не выращен в Америке или в Европе. Если Вы живете в области США или Европы тогда, это – довольно надежная ставка, что у Вас нет потрясающего вида на плантацию чая. Жалко по факту потому, что это действительно красиво. Возьмите себе немного чая, и если вы склонны, рассмотрите эти потрясающие плантации чая. ” Если вам будет холодно чай согреет вас. Если вам будет жарко, он охладит вас. если вы будете подавлены, он поднимет вам настроение. Если вы взволнованы, он успокоит вас.”  Уильямом Гладстоун

Champions keep playing until they get it right.” ~Billie Jean King

Think of how many people quit playing before they become a champion. Perhaps they might have made it if they just would have kept playing, making adjustments, and getting better at their craft. If you want to experience more success all you have to do is keep practicing, keep playing against better opponents, and keep learning all that you can. With enough perseverance you’ll find that you become a champion because you’ve spent time “in the trenches and now you know your game better than anyone else and you are dubbed a champion. This is not just applicable to sports, but to several areas of personal development. Which areas of your life do you want to become a champion in?

Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try.” ~Yoda

Yoda dropped one of his most famous phrases on Luke when Luke said he would try to move the sunken ship. He pointed out a very true statement. You either accomplish what you set out to do, or you don’t, there is no in between, no grey area called try. Choose to do that one thing that you’ve been “trying to do but have yet to succeed at. Feel that satisfaction that comes with knowing that you did, and that you didn’t just try, or you didn’t do not. You must unlearn what you have learned.

Past and Present of villa in Monferrato

Couple of weeks ago i got a chance to be invited for  drink in a friends villa in Monferrato.  For curiosity  i decided to check about this region some information.  Was figuring out that is one of the most attracting areas in Piemonte!!!! Monferrato is characterised by the softness and integrity of a landscape that in autumn turns into an enchanted red colour, more then that is a land rich of history and tradition. So i was prepared for Italian country-style house with a lot of pasta and pizza with a glass of beautiful Barolo. But it wasn’t about this at all. When i arrived on my delighted eyes was a total white Castle )  It was impossible do not fall in love in sophisticated interior of this house, that was designed by Laura Giordano. Total white house with wooden details combination and soft beige furniture accent was more then organic. Must to say that it would be a perfect house for family for all the time.

Несколько недель назад, я имела возможность быть приглашенной на коктейль в дом друзей в Монферато. Из любопытства, я решила узнать про этот регион немного информации. Обнаружила, что это одно из самых привлекательных мест в регионе Пьмонта!!! Монферато характеризуется своей мягкостью и целостностью пейзажа, который осенью превращается в очаровательный красный цвет, более того эта територия багата своей историей и традициями. С того момента я подготовилась к итальянскому загородному дому в котором будем много пасты и пиццы с бокалом чудесного бароло. Но это было совсем не о том. Когда я приехала туда, в моих восторженных глазах был полностью белый замок) Это было невозможно не влюбится в великолепный интерьер дома, дизайн которого разработала Лаура Джиардини. Полностью белый дом с деревяными комбинирующими деталями и мягкий бежевый акцент на мебели выглядело больше чем органично. Должна сказать что это будет отличный дом для семьи на все время.

“If there is no struggle, there is no progress.” ~Frederick Douglass

Struggle often feels like a lack of progress, so it’s nice to turn it on its head and realise that it’s actually the way progress is made. If you’re not struggling you’re probably not challenging yourself enough. The important part is not to let struggle deter you from making that progress. Step one is learning to view struggling as a positive thing, rather than a negative thing. Then you won’t be so hard on yourself if you find that you’re struggling again. It just means you’re learning, growing, and taking on enough to keep you busy.

Body Cult

ПРЕДСТАВЬТЕ В ОДНОЙ КОМНАТЕ ОДНОВРЕМЕННО ВСЕХ ЖЕНЩИН, которых вы когда-либо видели — от Мэрилин Монро до случайной прохожей. В них не найдется ничего общего, кроме того, что они — люди. Но индустрия красоты и история искусства, которую все еще принято постигать глазами, норовят перепутать карты и выдать четкий стандарт, которому ни я, и даже Анджелина Джоли, скорее всего, не соответствуют. Почему так происходит и откуда берется этот идеал недостижимой красоты — большой и важный вопрос. Красота — дело вкуса: это в равной степени подтверждает выбор партнеров друзьями и полярные комментарии под фотографиями знаменитостей. Но для адекватного отношения со своим телом важнее найти опору в настоящем и прошлом. И нет ничего лучше и нагляднее общей истории искусства, чтобы обрести эту опору.

Для красоты тела важны многие параметры. И правильное питание, и хороший сон, и регулярные спортивные тренировки. И ещё для красоты тела важным помощником является косметика. Около года назад я начала замечать, что моя кожа на ногах стала шелушиться и как-то странно реагировать на синтетические чулки , бритву и мыло. После чего я сходила к дерматологу – он мне это все подтвердил. Оказывается  пои ножки стали алергичными к синтетике и мылу ((( Долго думала как поддерживать чистоту и гигиену этих зон ведь практически все средства имеют в себе небольшой состав мыла!!! Меня спасло то, что я была в Италии и зашла в ближайшую аптеку в расстроенном виде. Милая женщина показала мне продукт который изменил мой взгляд на реальность :  крем для тела без мыла  от Lierac !!! Буквально после нескольких дней использования я забыла про существование моей проблемы как таковой. Я решила вернуться и поблагодарить девушку и на эмоциях еще прикупила скраб gommage sensoriel Lierac для тела который настоятельно советую попробовать !!!

lierac-крем для тела без мыла

Lierac best scrub ever

IMAGINE IN ONE ROOM ALL WOMEN AT THE SAME TIME , whom you ever saw — from Marilyn Monroe to the casual passerby. In them there will be nothing common, besides, that they are— people. But the industry of beauty and art history which still can be comprehended eyes, strive to mix cards and to issue the accurate standard to which YOU and I, and even Angelina Jolie, most likely, don’t correspond. Why it occurs and from where this ideal of unattainable beauty — a big and important question undertakes. Beauty — a matter of taste: it equally confirms a choice of partners with friends and polar comments under photos of celebrities. But for the adequate relation with the body it is more important to find a support in the present and the past. Also there is nothing best of all and more visually than the general history of art to find this support.

For a beauty of body there are many  important parameters. Both healthy nutrition, and good sleep, and regular sports trainings. And still for keeping beauty shape important assistant is the cosmetics. About a year ago I started noticing that my skin start shelling and somehow strangely react to synthetic stockings,  razor and soap. After all that i went to dermatologist – he to me is all confirmed. It appears that my legs alergichny to synthetics and soap ((( I thought how to maintain purity and hygiene of these zones after all practically all  have small composition of soap! ! ! I was rescued with my stay in Italy; came into the next drugstore in the upset look. The lovely woman showed me a product which changed my view of reality: a body cream without soap from Lierac! ! ! Literally after several days of use I forgot about existence of my problem at all. I decided to return and thank the girl and emotionally still bought gommage sensoriel Lierac scrub for a body which insistently I advise to try! ! !

“Change your thoughts and you change your world.” ~Norman Vincent Peale

It seems like it would be easy enough to change your world if all it takes is changing your thoughts, but thoughts aren’t the easiest thing in the world to change. Many of the thoughts a person has each day are the result of habitual thinking, thinking the same thoughts again and again, day after day. It takes work to try and undo this sort of thinking and have new thoughts. But if you can manage to think more positive thoughts, your world will become more positive. The opposite is also true, which is why you should pay attention to the way your thoughts make you feel.
