Happiness (:

Sw@i

Once a group of 500 people were attending a seminar. Suddenly the speaker stopped and decided to do a group activity. He started giving each person a balloon. Each person was then asked to write their name on it using a marker pen. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room.
The people were then let into that room and asked to find the balloon which had their name written on it within 5 minutes. Everyone was frantically searching for their name, colliding with each other, pushing around others and there was utter chaos.

At the end of 5 minutes no one could find their own balloon.
Then, the speaker asked each person to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it. Within minutes everyone had their own balloon.

The speaker then began, “This is happening in our lives. Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all around, not knowing where it is.

Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Give them their happiness; you will get your own happiness. And this is the purpose of human life…the pursuit of happiness.”

Practice Yoga

Finding a daily routine to include yoga in your life isn’t always easy and excuses can sometimes prevent you from creating a healthy and regular yoga routine.

This article focuses on the ways to ensure that yoga becomes a daily routine for you that is both enjoyable and beneficial.

STEPS:

  • A flowing activity that increases your awareness of breathing
  • A standing posture
  • A side stretch
  • A forward bend
  • A backbend
  • A twist
  • An abdominal strengthener
  • A balance
  • An inversion
  • Another forward bend
  • Final relaxation (Pranayama and meditation). You can choose to spend as long as you like in this final step.

P.S – Expect gradual improvement, not miracles. 😀

Respect

Dancer Adrianne Haslet-Davis, left, performs on stage with dancer Christian Lightner at the 2014 TED Conference, in Vancouver, British Columbia.

She was a dancer who lost her left leg in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. She took to the stage with a new prosthetic limb to perform for the first time since losing part of her left leg. After 200 days of work, for the first time she danced a rumba on her new leg, to raucous applause from the crowd.

See her above, with dance partner Christian.

With her husband Adam Davis, an Air Force captain, they were both injured in the Marathon bombings.

The Edges

It’s very possible that your battered, old copy of the book contains some fore-edge painting, which is an illustration or painting that is hidden on the edge of the pages of the book. The technique allegedly dates back to the 1650s and we have no idea why people went through the trouble of painting on their old works of literature, but they are there.
