It has been said that a book is like a garden in your pocket, but I feel as though it’s like carrying a world in your pocket. If you find yourself in a rather dull place you need only turn a page to be transported to another epoch or realm. Yet at some point there may not be a book or movie that can take you to the place your imagination longs to visit - so if you are brave enough you begin to craft your own story. First an idea or a picture, then a word or a line, and if you are lucky they begin to connect like constellations ✨

📸The book: #searchformeaning #victorfrankl
You know, there are days we trap ourselves and days we reveal our own truths to ourselves. It's painful to admit when you've been lying to yourself. Sometimes the lies protect us like a patient cocoon. But every day is a promise waiting to be found, and someday, whether you like it or not, you must break free. You must open the promise of each and every day. Because if you don't, eventually reality will drag you out blind, kicking & screaming. Because there are consequences for every inaction, every silence, every breath. Everything you do or don't do has meaning. So, as much as you possibly can, strive to know yourself, and don't deceive yourself. We each have a voice and a pair of eardrums for a reason. We were always meant to be heard. . . .

Not feeling fulfilled or satisfied with your life is a matter of taking control and asking for guidance. Return to yourself by filling up with strength and love.

Powerful quote, one I increasingly appreciate.
You my wise and funny instabuddies give me a daily dose of hope.
Hope that there is more to life than paying bills.
Hope that the world can shift if we all share a little more generosity and humour each day.
Hope that I will publish.

Bu çanta ahhh bu çanta. Onun adı “gezenti ” 😂
İlk gençlik yıllarımda annem “ayakkabılarınla yat bari daha kolay olur” diye homurdanırdı..
Sonra sanırım onun en derin arzusu gerçekleşti ve beni başka hiçbir şey yerimde tutamaz sanırken, bu çok severek yaptığım işim ve bazı başka hayat sürprizleri yerime çaktı..
Ayakkabılarımla yatasım gelen o evden, en fazla 360 derece açılabildim.. Victor Frankll dediği gibi. hayat bizim ne istediğimizi hiç mi hiç umursamıyor. Biz onun ne istediğini anlatmak durumundayız.
“Az dediğin küçücük bir kelime. Sadece A ve Z . Sadece iki harf ama aralarında koca bir alfabe var..” #hakangünday #az

Top 3 highest paying jobs in Czech Republic in 2017:💰
1. Air traffic controller (~7614€/month)
2. Top representatives of large companies and institutions (~6342€/month)
3. Executives in IT and operations (~4134€/month)
And a photographer or a waitress making fraction of that can be happier and have better quality of life. Money doesn’t equal happiness nor success. Those come from doing what you LOVE. Every single day.
Not everyone is supposed to be a doctor/lawyer/executive. The one who loves kids would give anything to work in a kindergarten. The guy who loves art, maybe he could start his own studio.
The truth is - no matter what you love, it’s the best time to be alive to make it your source of income. The question is... what will it be for YOU? What would you enjoy doing for free for at least a year? ✨
🇨🇿 Tři nejlépe placené práce v Česku v roce 2017: 💰
1. Řídící letového provozu (~194 835 Kč/měsíc)
2. Nejvyšší představitelé velkých společností a institucí (~162 750 Kč/měsíc)
3. Ředitelé v oblasti informačních a komunikačních technologiích (~105 743 Kč/měsíc)
A fotograf nebo servírka může být šťastnější a žít kvalitnější život. Peníze nemusí nutně znamenat štěstí nebo úspěch. To získáme jedině děláním toho, co milujeme. Den co den.
Ne každému sedne být doktorem/právníkem/ředitelem. Holka, která miluje děti, bude asi štěstím bez sebe ve školce. Chlápek co miluje umění by si zase mohl založit vlastní studio.
Udělat to co milujeme svým ‘zdrojem obživy’ nebylo nikdy možnější, než teď. Otázkou zůstává - co to bude pro TEBE? Co bys ráda dělal/a zadarmo alespoň rok? ✨
What Is The Meaning of Life?
A Greek philosopher, and teacher, Dr Alexandros Papaderos, ended a lecture asking, “Are there any questions?” .
In the audience was Robert Fulghum who asked, “Dr. Papaderos, what is the meaning of life?”
Papaderos held up his hand and stilled the room and looked at me for a long time, asking with his eyes if I was serious and seeing from my eyes that I was. ‘I will answer your question,’ he said. .
Then taking his wallet out of his hip pocket, he fished into it and brought out a very small, round mirror, about the size of a quarter. .
Then he said, ‘When I was a small child, during the war, we were very poor and we lived in a remote village. One day, on the road, I found several broken pieces of a mirror from a wrecked German motorcycle. I tried to find all the pieces and put them together, but it was not possible, so I kept only the largest piece. This one. And by scratching it on a stone, I made it round. .
I began to play with it as a toy and became fascinated by the fact that I could reflect light into dark places where the sun would not shine – in deep holes and crevices and dark closets.
It became a game for me to get light into the most inaccessible places I could find. I kept the little mirror, and as I went about my growing up, I would take it out in idle moments and continue the challenge of the game. .
As I became a man, I grew to understand that this was not just a child’s game but a metaphor for what I might do with my life. .
I came to understand that I am not the light or the source of the light. But light – truth, understanding, knowledge – is there, and it will only shine in many dark places if I reflect it.
‘I am a fragment of a mirror whose whole design and shape I do not know. Nevertheless, with what I have, I can reflect light into the dark places of this world – into the black places in the hearts of men – and change some things in some people. Perhaps others may see and do likewise. This is what I am about. This is the meaning of my life.’
And then he took his small mirror and, holding it carefully, caught the bright rays of daylight streaming through the window and reflected them onto my face.
Day 29. This pair of cards is very powerful and connects perfectly with the quote I chose.
I should manifest my ideas into practical, material reality. This links so well to the last part of the quote about singing over the bones to make the song. The interpretation of this card in the book is so beautiful that I had to include the whole thing as a photo rather than my usual extract down here. And the imagery on the card itself is also amazing - I've found myself being very drawn to spiral and labyrinth symbols over the last year and drawing a lot of them in my sketchbook and even on stones, so I connected well with this card. The labyrinth has obvious interpretations about a journey to find the truth, but I feel I still need to do a bit more searching about what the spirals and concentric circles mean to me. #wildwoodtarot
And then here's the bear again, after her appearance on day 1 of this challenge and then as my birth totem animal. The message connects perfectly to the first part of the quote: "Take steps you never have before, search deep within for the truth." #inneranimaloraclecards

Man’s search for meaning on today’s episode with @furbustrey.
Link in bio for this and all episodes.
As I was doodling this entry a gospel song lyric popped into my head: “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine” and that just reinforces my whole thinking about journal writing which is that it’s a way of getting clear about who you are and what you’re all about and how you can express and share that goodness in the world around you whether in your personal life with family and friends, your community, your workplace, online, or myriad other ways. Connection with and contribution to others are foundational elements of what it means to live a good life and a journal can be a remarkable companion and mentor for helping you to connect and contribute in meaningful ways. #journaling #journalwriter #selfinquiry #thelightofinquiry #selfawareness #searchformeaning #journal #journals #penaddict #selfcare #selfknowledge #illumination
