All the little signs you’re officially adulting

Becoming an adult has always been a myth for me. But, here comes the moment when I finally realized that I am officially an adult. And like every stage of our life, it has its advantages and inconveniences.

So here then the real signs of the passage to the adult life which will perhaps make you smile:

  • You’re over excited when there are “Win $ 1000 in Grocery Basket” contests.
  • You start worrying about the labels on your clothes: you’ve ruined enough pieces in the dryer this year for your budget.
  • Your dishwasher is your best friend

The Tunisian Women

The Tunisian woman has always known how stand out over time. In my opinion, no quality can describe her: strong, capable, responsible, dreamer … And the list is non-exhaustive.

Going back in time, Tunisia is a country that has been founded by women: starting with Queen Dido. Dido, is a Phoenician princess, legendary founder and first queen of Carthage. Arrived on the shores of North Africa, in present-day Tunisia, she founded the city of Carthage. According to legend, she would have burned herself to death so that she would not have to marry the sovereign of the land, Hiarbas. She founded Carthage by making an ingenious agreement with a Berber king. Indeed, she asked him to give him a land of the surface of a skin of beef that she cut into thin strips to put them end to end and delimit the location of the city.

Why is it awesome to be an ambivert?

I have always struggled to define myself as either extrovert or introvert. Like most people, I don’t quite fit into either category.

When we describe our personalities, we often specify a trait: that of extroversion-introversion. There are those who prefer loneliness, and those who are rather turned towards others … and then, there are the others: those who would not lean for extroversion, nor for the introversion.

Some of you may recognize as much in the definition of introversion as in that of extroversion. Maybe you, you like to spend time alone, meditate a little on yourself, and at the same time, maybe enjoy evenings with friends and new encounters …

Psychedelic Art: Tasha Alakoz

Art: Another Perspective 

I recently discovered the new artist Tasha Alakoz on Instagram (@tashalakoz).  Her work caught my attention and brought me the dose of creative inspiration that I needed.

Digital artist Tasha Alakoz from Latvia has a very different job on the net. She makes digital compositions of self portraits with many vibrant colors, contrasts and geometric prints. She does all the work, from producing the photos, to the final editing and is also her own model with the help of the camera timer.

Why are we so afraid of change?

We live in constant change, and at the same time, our fear of change is always there: why is it so intense?

We don’t like monotony: we fall into boredom when it occupies our life. And at the same time, change is scary. Another proof of human complexity!

In both cases, it is likely that you feel this fear so widespread: the fear of change!

But where does this fear come from? Here is what I believe:

Authority vs Leadership

The difference between authority and leadership is distinct and huge but can be very similar if none can determine the fine line. It often happens that I am asking myself the difference between leadership and authority. Today, the authority is hard to impose, whether within the family or the company. Leadership, on the other hand, is much more successful. After many researches, I think I have an answer or at least part of it.  So, let’s discover or rediscover the difference between these two methods of management.

  • What’s Leadership?

“the action of leading a group of people or an organization.”

Inner peace is the new success

Inner peace, serenity, calm, peaceful …. All these words trigger a pretty weird emotions inside of me me. And to be honest, I don’t know why. It started few months earlier with my coach. I have been selected to take part of a leadership development program.  As every single person of my age, I saw it as an opportunity to add a new certificate to my resume. Surprise: it was something totally different.

I will not talk about the whole process, I will probably need a book and not a blog, but it somehow transformed me!

Teamwork

Teamwork is an essential skill in nowadays professional word. It is a way of working in which people interact within groups to achieve a common goal within a specific timeline. Mastering this skill does not need a lot of effort or focus, you just need to know how to discipline yourself and in the same time how to interact with others in the most efficient way.

A fundamental requirement for teamwork is a good organization:

When you build a team that you organize and supervise in the rules of art, you maximize the chances of brilliantly achieving your goal.

The music has a lot of power on our balance. It all started since the beginning, we hear the music in the sound of our voice, the wind, the movement, every tangible and intangible piece has the capability to produce music. It can affect us in many ways: it gives us the joys and happiness, but it can also reflect our past and memories. It can also transform us, make us travel in time and make the impossible possible.The music is a total different language, you don’t need to understand the lyrics to feel it.
