In this episode, we have someone very interesting and varied in his experience. Yannis Dimitroulas is an expert […]
You are perfect, with your scars shining brightly.
It always pleases the eyes to see art.
I had the epiphany to turn this blog into a home for the Polymath: one who knows a broad range of things.
I had to ask myself a question: in what direction should I go towards?
Would it be about philosophy, its inner workings and how it empowers us as individuals? Or, would it be about money, and how it plays such a big part in our lives?
But first, a definition!
Lessons can be found within everyone.
Children are a double-edged sword.
On one hand, they can be demanding, annoying and downright loud. I speak this from having experience. I was a passenger on the same plane. We all know that feeling.
On the other, you can watch them grow. You can watch them learn the world, and make decisions on their own. It must be a satisfying feeling to see one of your own growing to become a full-fledged adult.
People are golden to me.
They can be unrefined, found in the deepest of mines. Some are greater in quality than others. In order to put a value to it though, a piece of gold must be refined by human hands.
I came to this realization earlier this year as I was going through a hard time. A mental breakdown, questioning my own purpose in life. No one had the answer to my question.
Calling a friend that night though, saved me.

It sits beside your 20 others.
While window-shopping, you see a BUY 1 FREE 1 sale happening.
It’s an amazing deal, you think to yourself.
You fumble through your wallet full of cards. You wonder which ones have not maxed out yet. You forgot. It doesn’t matter.
Now you think.
Time is like a goldmine within us: we mine at it every day, to trade what we earned for food on the table. Or experiences. Even if this mine is a part of us, we give away part of ourselves for only one reason: to live.
Don’t trade it away so easily. Here is a way for you to track your time.
When I was young, I loved the sandbox. In there, I built sandcastles.
They were less castle and more ‘sand mounds’. Being the overly creative kid I was, I piled sand on top of each other and believed that the sand will take its natural form. It was the most beautiful mound I had ever laid my eyes on.
This is Part II of how to be above your money. Part I is here.
In this part, we deal with the things that go in your head.
I earned so much money in so little time 2 years ago.
When I was studying in Japan, I was given the chance to be a dancing instructor to some Japanese kids in Gunma.
