Why do we (or you Americans, we don’t even have this day in Sweden or Lithuania) celebrate Thanksgiving only one day a year? It’s like you buy this huge turkey (I really feel sorry for thousands of poor birds that are doomed to die just a because a human being could enjoy a few bites and then later flush it in the toilet… but we can talk about that some other time), eat it up with a group of people (throw up once o twice in the meantime. (Either because of the turkey or the people) ) who you suddenly feel so ”thankful” to and then when the day is over you get back to your old grumpy self talking sh*t behind everyone’s back and enjoying it? (wow, what a long sentence) OK, maybe it’s not as bad as I just described it. Well, actually, I’ve never celebrated Thanksgiving in the US, so I can’t really judge. And since we don’t have Thanksgiving neither in Sweden or Lithuania, I have never celebrated it in my entire life. Who knows, maybe it’s fun? I should try it someday, just without the turkey, of course.
But let’s get back to the topic…
The only thing that I wanted to say today (this huge intro shattered my plans) is that we should have Thanksgiving every day! 365 days a year! (just without the turkey, please) Let’s show the world and people who are surrounding us how much we appreciate them, because one day it is gonna be too late. Let’s appreciate what we have today, how we look and how we feel, because it’s never going to come back.
Thank you for letting me work with incredibly talented and creative people today!
Thank you ,because I feel strong and healthy today!
Thank you for my wonderful and loving family! (I should definitely say this one more often)
Thank you for my amazing and loyal friends!
Thank you for a great cup of coffee, which made my day a bit better!

What stands on your list today?
Oh, forgot the most important one! Thank you Ylvis for making my mornings worth to wake up to!

I love those rainy&dark Sunday evenings when I can sit quietly with a cup of chai tea (my favorite) and wonder about life. In general. Why are we here? What’s our purpose? What’s my purpose?
I really do believe in existence of a Greater Power. And I really do believe that there must be a purpose (for some strange reasons) why we are here, living the way we are living, dealing with difficulties and feeling happy the second after. Otherwise, I don’t really see a point of living for 80 human years just because someone accidentally (or not) created you, then dying, because the body gets too old and then disappearing.. yeah, I don’t even know where. Confusing.
So, what I came up with was that we are so into our tiny problems and things we have to deal with everyday that we forget to look up and see the whole picture. The universe is so big. And I believe that The Creator of this masterpiece would be so disappointed if we would just live the lives that were given to us without questioning it or wanting something better, just because we were born and don’t have anything else to do.
I strongly believe that each and everyone of us has something to give to the whole world and help to make this place better. So, in a way we are the creators of our own destiny, but maybe time to time we get a little push from Up There just to make things right. What about that?

Rule #1 of life. Do what makes YOU happy. If you do something that doesn’t make you happy – quit it. Make a change. Make a place for something new in your life that will give you butterflies in your stomach. Do not fear. Just DO it!
Ah, easy to say, hard to do…
I wonder, why it is so that we hold on to the past so much? Why can’t we just move on if we deeply know, that it will make us happier? Why to spend time and tears on something that is already broken and can’t be fixed? Why to go to the same workplace for years even if every morning your body pretends to be sick just because you could skip an hour or two?
To make a change could be the most terrifying, but the best thing that ever happen to you! And even if all of us know that, we are still stuck in the same dark place as before, because we are too scared. And that’s how most people are their whole life.
How many times you’ve heard an old lady saying: ” if I could turn back time, I would do this and that instead. ” or how many times you wanted to do something, you had a shot, but you missed it, because you were too scared? Which totally makes sense that you and your imaginary fears are your biggest enemies!
I am sick of feeling sorry for myself. I am sick for letting my dreams go. I am sick for being stuck in one place and never moving on. I am sick, because I fear the future in case I will fail. Well you know what? I am sick of being sick. I am so sick that I can’t even handle it anymore. So, finally the breaking point came to my life and I decided to make the best of it! Now, let me go and make my dreams come true!

There are some radical changes going on in my life at the moment. Changes, which make people stop living for a while, because they are painful… So, I decided to accept it as a beginning of a new chapter, maybe a whole new book in my life. I started off with something I’ve always wanted to do- help animals to get a better life! So, I became a tiger sponsor at WWF!
I believe that It takes so little to make a difference in our world. Only if each and everyone living on this planet understood it- we would have a paradise here! But instead we are used to blame others (they are ruining the planet, not me!) and therefor can’t even move a finger ourselves, because we think that it’s they who have to change, not us! Well, no! Always start with yourself. That’s what I did.
I guess, I needed a push to start doing something about myself, my life and what I want from it. Too bad, that it had to happen the way it happened, but maybe someday I will look back at these days, smile and understand the reason. I hope this day will come soon…

Please, explain to me one thing, because apparently I don’t get something here… What’s up with this war thingy going on? Where did ”I want world peace” go?
If you think about it, our planet is a pretty horrible place to live on: deadly diseases, people killing each other every day, lots of negativity on every corner… Our planet is exhausted! So, why make things even worse, kill even more people and create karma (I believe in it, OK?) which will make the future generations to answer for. Why can’t we live peacefully? Why can’t we love each other instead rather than hate, terror and kill each other?
I think than human being’s life (or any other organism’s life on this planet) is so underestimated. It shouldn’t be like that. That’s not why we were created- to ruin ourselves.
So, I pray for every innocent soul, which was lost during these past couple of days. I pray for everyone to open their eyes and see that it doesn’t have to be this way. And I strongly believe that someday , probably when neither of us sitting here will exist anymore, the future generations will value things that are given to them. But hope is not everything. We have to start today! Not tomorrow or after dinner! No, right at this second! We have to make decision to stop hating and start loving each other!
