On finding a purpose.

I have been MIA from Papier et Cie for a while, and for that I am truly sorry. To be clear, I am mostly apologizing to myself.

But browsing the world wide web in search of much needed inspiration today, I came across this very interesting post written by the good people at Lily/Liseno blog.

They offer up great content on Branding and Graphic Design if you are in to that sort of stuff. Find the link down below and enjoy.

The Fearless Girl

Yesterday was  International Women`s Day, and I wanted to wish every woman in this world empowerment and courage to rise above. I wanted to have posted this yesterday, but lack of time and sound mind to edit this before bed made it a hard task. I am a firm believer that women`s day is every day, here goes nothing.

Reading as a form of meditation

In his new work, The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World, his Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama together with the Archbishop Desmond Tutu (a South African social rights activist and retired Anglican bishop who fought against the apartheid in the 1980s) explores how mindfulness in a world so chaotic can lead to a more permanently joyful life. Revealing the reason he is able to be mindful every day is by sleeping for nine hours and meditating for five hours every day – four hours when he rises and one before bed. These are the two most joyful and enlightened humans on earth, so when they have something to say it`s probably worth our attention.

Eat like the Japanese – they are on to something.

It is no coincidence that the Japanese have a  very low mortality rate and overall healthier lifestyle. Recent research and scientific articles point this to the Japanese diet, or the official dietary guidelines followed by the Japanese population. I will call it guidelines simply because they do not think of this as a diet per say, they do not restrict anything from their daily food intake. It is all based on portion control, mindful healthy eating and Hara hachi bun me (腹八分目/はらはちぶんめ) which translate into “only eat until you are 80% full”.

Best political dramas to start watching tonight!

Washington, D.C. is where the term dog-eat-dog world was invented. The city that breaths politics, backroom negotiations and secrecy. Where the people democratically picked to represent you work  to make big decisions on your behalf.

My two cents: President Trump

On November 9th of last year the world woke up to the shocking results of the U.S. elections. Donald J. Trump would be the 45th president of the United States.

Today was his inauguration, and the whole world watched as President Elect Trump prepared to take the oath and be sworn into the most important job on earth. If he keeps all promises made on his twitter  account of what his first actions would be on his first day in office, Monday will be a very busy day for President Trump.
