Keep smiling, show emotions!

Living in the virtual world is full of emoticons, and some of them are really weird! It’s easy to push the key on a keyboard and send the picture with a mood because nobody can watch your face and real emotions. Do we really laugh or love as much as the emoticons show?

I don’t have anything against emoticons! I’ve been using them since Windows had not yet existed, and we had to do it with alphanumeric characters only. It has always been a way how to make a cold computer communication more human.

However, it seems to me that we have already come to a strange extreme. We are using emoticons in the virtual world abundantly and often thoughtlessly, while in the real world we carefully hide emotions and, unfortunately, often even in front of ourselves. Are we giving so much effort to make computer communication more human, that we don’t have enough humanity or emotionality for the living outside the keyboard?

So I draw a picture to remind the importance of emotions, all kinds of them. Finally I have seen what I somehow know, that emotions are like water. They are deep and strong, flowing one to another, quietly or in turbulence, usually without warning.  And to survive as humans, we need emotions as much as water. Don’t you think so?

With love, Ivana

Happy and Healthy New Year!

While drawing the picture of the tree of wishes, which finally looks more like tree of turbulences, I’ve been receiving a list of advices from the Universe which I would like to share:

Don’t ignore new impulses and fill your cup of love by creative moments according to your preferences.

Be open to change your mind. Let the others to inspire you, but stay yourself. This is the only way how to inspire the others. Let the inspiration’s channel always open in both ways.

Don’t stay alone more than necessary. Tell the others you want to share your moments with them. There are millions people alone, so don’t give up and continue in case you’ve been refused.

Don’t try to do all the work yourself. Let the others to help you even you consider them weak or useless. Such result is not going to be perfect but more realistic with higher chance to survive.

Let joy to enter into your life more often. You couldn’t organize it. Let it simply come inside your heart.

None of us is alone in the Universe and each of us is surrounded by love in many forms.

So enjoy the Life and Love in the New Year 2017!
