July 1, 2020
comeback minimalist podcast

April 10, 2020
We are perfectly imperfect

We all are perfectly imperfect. That’s perfectly alright. We all should try how to deal with our imperfections rather than just pretending to be perfect. Accept yourself as just as you are- ‘perfectly imperfect’ and it will take you to the road of freedom. Freedom from unrealistic comparisons and unworthy feeling.

desire and delight quote

Love consists in desiring to give what is our own to another and feeling his delight as our own. Emanuel Swedenborg Love has always been a debatable topic. There are so many definitions and explanations and each one is little different. Love is just a feeling, like every other feeling.
