Blog

Welcome to my blog. In this blog you can read about all kinds of subjects around living a life that is worth living. Resources and tips are given towards better understanding of yourself and the world we live in. I hope you find enjoyment in reading through some of them, and if anything comes up for you while reading, we might even be able to discuss this in a coaching session. 

 

Development

Development is something we are all come in contact with during our lives. As a human being we grow like everything around us, from child to adult we grow literally bigger. After this we do not stop, we grow mentally further when we are physically done with growing. Now that I am at the beginning of my adult life, it becomes clear to me that it is paramount to how you are in your head. It is not always easy, in life we encounter obstacles, but also very good moments. Sometimes I wonder what we are all doing now, we give ourselves a meaning in life because we have the idea that we are here for something we can wake up in the morning. But how true is it what all around us has happened? It all has to do with how we are put together and how we are programmed to think, how we are brought up. Living in London and meeting students from all over the world let me reflect on how I look at the world. It may sound cliche, but it strikes me that in the Netherlands we have good for each other, especially when it comes to health care. In many countries there is no safety net for people who are struggling, where in the Netherlands support is available to strengthen your own strength if you need it. Despite the fact that we all live under good circumstances , there are still problems in society, which are often the things that emerge in the media. It is striking to me that we always see the extremes of events in the media. Or we see what goes terribly wrong, or we see what fantastic has occurred. Where the news mainly highlights the low points, social Especially the best sides of the media. In my opinion, this gives a false picture of reality, as many moments in life are not so spectacular. And yet we use what we see as a yardstick for our own lives. In spite of this, I believe that there is a current trend in which people become increasingly aware of their own norms and values and make them less dependent on what is imposed on them from the outside. This comes to my mind because people are increasingly going to listen to themselves (and the body), to determine which path you are walking as an individual. Because we listen to it, it is possible to do things in your life in which you get the most out of yourself and therefore can give the most back to the world. When it comes to mental health, only the absent of a mental disorder not enough anymore.When people take responsibility for things that don't go so well in their lives, they are looking at how they can change to address the situation in a different way next time. This makes it possible to be able to develop as a person. If we think that all the problems we face are outside ourselves, we will always keep pointing fingers and never change our comfortable selves. It's not easy to ask yourself what else you could have done or where you might be wrong in the story. Sometimes it's easier to lie to yourself by pretending that you have done well and are right. Here you miss the opportunity to gain new insights about yourself and to develop as a human being. By having standards and values for yourself, you can always weigh your actions here. I have noticed that there can be a big difference in pronouncing and actually executing your values and norms. How do you think about this? In what sense do you take responsibility if something (negative) happened? How do your norms and values actually fit in with the actions you take in daily life? How could you bring it even closer together?

Struggles

Life is not just sunshine and moonlight, which is something  probably everyone is aware of. Even if you choose to do what you find incredibly awesome to do, it is in our nature to always keep looking for problems. I have been able to experience that in the situation in which I am now. The first number of weeks of my studies were like I was living on a pink cloud, now I could really finally totally deposit at One What I find so interesting to keep me busy with. However, it slowly started to gnawing me that not everything was really going on as I would like it to be. Despite this I wanted to keep feeling good, and without me I had to look for distractions from my unreasonable ' negative ' feelings about certain things like finances or the amount of reading work of the study. This made regular (not always) that I forgot the problems and therefore did not come up with appropriate solutions to deal with these small or big problems. Negative feelings and emotions are like a signal to indicate that you have to do something to deal with your problems. You can do something directly to deal with the problem or something can be done in your head (mentally) in order to cope better with the problem.

Second wave of Positive Psychology

Now that I have spent more than two months studying positive Psychology I have gained many different insights about what positive psychology actually means and what we as people can do about it. As I have discussed more often in my blog, positive psychology is not just about happiness, happiness and the Good life. Positive psychology focusses Focus on what we want to go to instead of trying to understand where our problems come from forever. This is also a very important point where coaching focuses on, but in my experience I have also clearly seen that this is not the only thing you should pay attention to in life. About two weeks back, together with a number of fellow students and teachers, I went to a pub near the campus where the lectures were given. Here I got into conversation with one of the teachers and I asked him what box he gave. He indicated that he did not teach in my program, but that he teaches lectures in the master counselling. He told me something I had heard more often but was actually touched in the background of my consciousness; Counseling is the foundation on which coaching and PP continue Building. After having talked to him, I have often thought back to this since I had the feeling that something fundamental was lacking during my master's. Counseling is in essence deeper into the origins of certain thoughts on behavior, so you can better understand yourself and from here can act better.When I saw everything last week, I felt lost and disorientated. My head couldn't help why I felt so rotten, so I was drowning in negative thoughts. This morning I listened to a podcast about the passing of relatively small problems to a clinical disease. It shook me again just as well waking up how it is possible for anyone to get a clinical problem like depression, an anxiety disorder or what else is falling. We associate We do not like to bring ourselves here and prefer to put it outside of ourselves, but if you think it cannot happen to you, you are most vulnerable to this. All these disorders are, in my opinion, seen as something great and negative, people prefer not to touch them or do not know what to do when they encounter it themselves or in their environment. Here we come to the second wave of positive psychology. This ' second wave ' as it is mentioned in the books of my Teachers (Kate Hefforon et al. 2016), focused Not only on increasing positive emotions and meaning in life, but it focuses mainly on embracing the difficult and negative times and emotions in life. This sounds very very nice, if we just embrace the negative side then our life is fine. In practice, I have found that this is much more difficult than it initially seems. At the moment you are in a rotten situation you would prefer to do everything to make you feel better again, even if you are aware that an emotion is volatile and at some point again passes, you still want to change something; Can't I do anything or I can't do better here otherwise overna Think. Maybe we think here most times not even aware overna, many of the things we do unconsciously in life have, to my mind, been created for a large part by eliminating our negative feelings or because we cannot do anything; Eating, smoking, drinking and other addictive habits can be avoided. However, I think it is important to be really aware of it (ondankt That it may already ee cliche is) that the positive can not exist without the negative. If you don't let the negative be there in life and this Tries To extinguish, you unconsciously and unintentionally also very beautiful positive feelings out. Stand still that something that seems to be positive in the moment, this is not always in hindsight and this money also for negativity. You never know what Followed Negative or positive event, even in positive Psychology Talk about preventing Post-traumatic growth, in which someone after a traumatic event can transcend his ' normal ' level of well-being. In my opinion, Stress and negativity are almost never for nothing, it is a signal that something needs to be changed in your life, of which you are probably a big part. This way you can eventually get more out of life.

Discipine

What do you think first when reading this word? And do you have a positive or rather a negative Feeling about it? Discipline is an incredibly important aspect in life. You can have countless good ideas, but if you have no discipline to make them come to reality, you might as well keep dreaming forever. Last week I listened to the podcast of Caty Pasternak. She is a coach and talks in her podcast about various topics when it comes to personal development and coaching. Last weeks I constantly wondered why I did not always manage to work on my master, especially at times when I had a lot of time to spend on this. It could not be about my motivation because I think the study and the assignments are Extremely interesting. Whenever I started an assignment I could no longer concentrate than for a few minutes. Because my thoughts always strayed to other things, I could not stay focused on what is actually happening, what happened in the moment. It seems strange, maybe it also sounds crazy, but in my opinion Caty Always exactly know what I need in my own life, when making her podcast. Her previous podcast talked about how you can use energy in a more effective way in your life and how you actually give up your power when you put energy into things which are not going to bring you any value. I found out that I gave my energy away every time to things like eating or by stressing out about doing other things like doing the laundry.It seems to be linked to my previous blog about self-control, but in my opinion discipline is a quite different. Before I listened to Catys podcast, I thought the blame was on other things, that I couldn't concentrate on my assignments. It may also be related to mindfulness. This can be described as the skill to focus your attention on one particular thing, such as your breathing. By doing mindfulness meditation you can train yourself to focus on other things for a longer time, such as doing work or studying. There are, of course, many different aspects of why you do something or not. Never before I have been thinking about the major role discipline can play in this. Often, discipline is perceived as something negative, something that strains control of you. If you experienced discipline, like myself, always (unconsciously) as something negative, it seems logical that you prefer not to apply it in your own life. I want to challenge you and myself when it comes to Discipline and see what discipline can do for us. At the moment I thought of the moments from my life in which I showed discipline I thought; I don't  have those moments, I often work at the moment I feel good, when I feel I'm ready. This can be a positive, but it can also make my work a bit messy and structure less. When I think about the fact that I showed discipline, I often did so because the goal was captured by the outside world. I worked from a kind of fear of not failing. The moment this discipline came more out of me was during my diet, from which I developed my eating problems. No wonder I'd rather avoid discipline. But what if we are going to look at discipline differently. From the previous story it appears that I can show discipline whether or not from external motivation. Discipline can be an incredibly powerful tool to reach wherever you want to go. If you have a clear picture of your goals and what steps you need to take to achieve your goals, a healthy dose of discipline is indispensable. Everyone can show discipline if you really want to go for it. So.... where in your life did you show discipline, where would you want to put your discipline even more in order to grow yourself? Eventually your discipline will reward you

Self control

Last week I followed lessons on the body and mind connection, biochemistry, self-control and physical movement and well-being. What I find great about the lessons I follow, that it is subjects that everyone is going to do or not in everyday life. This means, of course, that it also concerns me. By applying what I learn during my studies, I can not only help others but also myself to be better in life and flourish more. I have noticed that we do not always need to know a model or a way to solve a particular problem. Often it seems to be enough to become aware of One What occurs, One That you stop to be your (best) self. A topic that I personally had to jump over the last week was: self-control. That I heard this word in the first instance, there were instant alarm calls from me and I thought directly to all the places I can't keep myself under control regularly. Research seems to show that you only have a certain number of stimuli One day you can check yourself. For example if you stop yourself from eating a nice fresh biscuit and then you have to concentrate on your homework, you can probably control yourself less to not YouTube Movie To look at it, then when you don't have to stop yourself from eating the biscuit. It is said that you can use energy only once, and I think you should be aware of what matters you are spending your energy on. We may think it is nothing if we make ourselves busy cleaning the house or that we are absorbed by our phone, but in reality ' wasting ' we have our energy here that we had in other matters Can Stop. This also appears to be similar to Mindfulness In my opinion. Make sure your energy goes more or only to the things you really care about, you have more time to do these things. This allows you to live more in the moment and I am still convinced that only in moments in the present can happiness be experienced. If you think back to the past or think about the future you can experience positive or negative emotions, but for now they are fetched to experience them. Consider what moments you are putting your energy in things that you really do not care about. What kind of things do you actually care for? What could you do to better distribute your energy (control)? These questions were clear to me this morning. When I pile up in the morning I always have a lot of things to do, which cost me a lot of energy and control. Because I think this morning in everything I did to consider whether it was worth it, I noticed that the answer to that question was very often no; I can use this energy for something else in a better way. Now I'm not saying that you don't have to do anything that costs you a lot of energy. If you want something quite like it is in my idea useful to not continually stop your energy in doing the activity, but start stopping your energy in creating a habit. Once something has become a habit, it costs much less energy to maintain your behavior.

Optimism

There are many topics discussed in my MAPPCP (Master of Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology) Program. Optimism has been a matter for me last few weeks. During my studies, attention is paid to what is needed for peoples well being. This can be pursued in many different ways. For example, by looking at how resilience can be reinforced. Resilience means that you can bounce back after something bad has happened. An example is having enough support from friends and family when you are told that you have a serious illness. I think one of the most important aspects in resilience is optimism and hope. What I think is interesting is that there are two forms of optimism; Having a general optimistic view of the future and optimism as a explanatory style. The last means that you deal with things that happen to you in an optimistic way. Both negative and positive situations. Seligman (Founder Or Positive Psychology) says that more optimistic people think about a positive situation in a way that they contribute to the good thing that happened. More pessimistic people explain a negative situation rather out of themselves. An optimist sees a negative event as something as situational and a more pessimistic view is that it is thought that the negative aspect is contributing in every situation. There are a lot of benefits of being optimistic what you probably already heard about. The most important one is the lowering of stress. You will be better at identifying problems, you will see situations as a challenge not as a threat, this makes you more approach oriented, more likely to seek information about the problem, ask for help, experience more positive emotions and take better care of your body.When it comes to me I do not know to what extent I agree with the depiction of being a pessimist or an optimist. There are all kinds of questionnaires to test whether you are the one or the other. It is clearly said that there is a Continuum is between the two. This means that there are many more places to stand between optimist and pessimist. In my opinion, this is a core of truth, but I think something is being overlooked. This came to my realization at the time I was going to consider whether I was actually more an optimist or a pessimist in different situations. I though about a negative event accrued the last two weeks. To be open about this, I will explain the situation brief. During a football match, a teammate continually told me what to do in the field, which distracted me and got me out of the game. After the game I went up to her to indicate that she took me out of my game. She told me that I have to get used to it. My message did not come through in my idea. I couldn't stop it and I burst into tears after several minutes. I walked away and I figured out all the things that didn't go well here in London and that I missed everyone, which did not allowed to stop crying. Everything came out at once and in hindsight the conversation with my teammate was the drop that caused the bucket to flow.I do not write this previous piece because I am pathetic or because I want you to feel sorry for me. It has taught me something about being an optimist or a pessimist. After this was done, I thought a lot about why this was happening. I tried to make sense of what had happened. I didn't do this by having just pessimistic or optimistic thoughts. I was struck by the fact that I used it very much. One moment I thought that this always happened to me, but the other moment I thought about it was also a lot to do with situation, why I couldn't keep my emotions under control. I think this mix of pessimistic and optimistic thoughts can make sure that you can form a better realistic picture about it. To be more clearly what I mean by this; I see these thoughts as all different ' dots ' that overlap to give meaning in a situation. Alright and just to get back to showing your emotions. I think it is good to let them be there, also (especially) the negative emotions. But it may be better to do this in people where you feel comfortable or just enjoy yourself. How do you explain negative and positive events? What goes through your head when something bad happened? And how is your General view of what the future is up for for you? With these last questions, I would like to make you think about how you are now in life and I would like to emphasize that the positive explanation of situations has opened doors to me. When I read about this I thought: no way, so basically you can just decide for yourself have a more optimistic view against life. and still last; It's something that you can decide for yourself and it's probably not going to work if your coach says you just have to be more positive. In any case not in my case.

Flow

Flow, we've all heard of it in some way.. But what is it actually and at what times is it experienced? One thing I know for sure, I was not in flow yesterday. After a wonderful To Do list, I felt tired and thought it would be good to do some of the reading in my bed. I didn't do much reading because after I read three lines, I felt asleep as a rock. Three hours later I woke up and I realized that wasted most of my day. To make it not of a big deal for myself, I just assume that I needed it to work more effectively at a later time. As I wrote in previous blogs, sleep is incredibly important to me because I know how much of my effectiveness depends on it, it helps me to focus better in any moment and to do not get distracted by all the thoughts in my head. I think a person can only really enjoy a moment if he or she is physically and especially mentally present. 7 hours sleep is for me is the minimum, preferably 8 hours. The first week in London was a mess for me when it comes to sleeping, so I decided to set an alarm for my bedtime. Well it is not exactly my bedtime, the alarm goes off at the moment when I have to get ready for the night, including writing in my 'Journal ', which I have started with in the second Week.  But anyway, back To Flow. Today I went discovering with my bike in the area where I live, with my positive psychology book in Pocket. While I was on a lying on a grass field I read about Flow, which comes from a researcher's work with a very complicated name. Through the book I was thinking about what flow actually was and at what times I experienced it myself. Flow can be experienced at the moment you're doing something that you're into. It may be something what you are passionate about, or, for example, an assignment you make for your studies or Work. Flow is located in the area between something that is too much of a challenge for you and something that is too little challenge for YOU. If it is too difficult, is there much more chance of getting confused and you most likely to give up earlier. if it is too easy for you, there is chance that you will become terribly bored and you will not even take that effort to the activity. Think about it, have you ever received an assignment for your studies, where you didn't know where to start and so you didn't do anything at all? To get into FLOW there has to be the right amount of challenge for YOU. Once you totally go for it, nothing distracts you and the time seems to be very slow at the moment or is goes very fast. When I think about moments I experienced this, I can think especially of many different moments. For example, I felt that way during a football training or a match, but it can also occur if I listen to something about positive psychology in a podcast or during Lectures. I seem to experience it while writing this blog. Yet I am often busy with other things in my head; Did I receive a message on whatsapp? Do I actually have to make a shopping list now? Which people do I have to mail back? Sometimes I have the idea that I have to do everything at once, while it has been proven that people work better when they are dealing with one thing at a time and that Multitask Nothing more than a fable.  Have you ever heard of flow? In what moments do you experience something like this in your life? Where has this occurred in the past few weeks with you? Take 1 minute to think about it. Do you sometimes try to get in to flow intentionally? The last I find incredibly interesting because I think you can do a lot about your own circumstances that can contribute to the fact that you will come into a flow state. For example, I have noticed that if I write my blog, it helps to put my phone away and take an specific hour to write this, this way  it is much easier than taking small breaks in between to do other things. Sometimes we are not always passionate about working on an assignment. A handy tool for me is; The Pomodoro Technique. This can be an incredibly effective means of giving you a push in the right direction of FLOW. So if you are interested in this, you need to hand in something important soon or want to work more effectively, please have a look at the link below:Https://francescocirillo.com/pages/pomodoro-technique

Being Different

Being different , This title came up in my head at the time I wanted to start writing my blog. At first I thought; no, I actually can't write anything about this, but because it suddenly came into me, I started thinking about it anyway. Most people heard the saying; ' Be yourself ' there are already enough others. This blog reminds me of the blog I've written about being authentic, but I think this topic is a little bit different from that. To ' be different' feels like it is a paradox; In one way, you want to be yourself and be different from others, but on the other hand you also want to be accepted by others, so you will naturally adapt to the group you attend. And yes, There are those who say that they are adapting for nothing and no one, but I wonder to what extent this is effective. You may feel better because you always stay with yourself, but you are going to miss the chance of beautiful contacts. I think it is tolerated at this time to be different and not to go along with the crowd all the time. Think of the hipster culture that has been growing in recent Years. The ironic thing about this is that there are a lot of Hipsters' it almost seems that they are actually not original with their style anymore. In most clothing stores, the hipster style can be found everywhere. We feel we should be different, why? This may have something to do with the fact that we all have a sense of who we are ourself, you can only experience what you are experiencing, not what others feel, smell, etc. Because of this you may also have a feeling that you are different from Others. Actually I'm speculating here, but I want to share my thoughts with you about all this.Ddo you have the idea that you are different from others? Do you want to be different from others or do you find it more comfortable to go along with the big crowd? Have you ever even thought about this?

Positive Psychology

Now that I'm over a week in London, I started preparing for my Master. It was an incredibly busy week and it has passed by really quick. Earlier this week I wanted to write my blog, but much has going on around me that I found it very difficult to think of what I should write about. At first, I wanted to talk about new habits, because I read somewhere that it can be beneficial to start new habits when your environment/situation changes. I want to do this bad but with everything that has happened around me, I still have the idea that I don't have the control over my life yet. Last week I had a conversation with someone who also lives on campus. We wondered how many people on this campus or perhaps in the world,  do not do what they want themselves and where they get happy or energy from. How many people do not feel in control about their own lives? because they were accidentally rolled into a particular life? Maybe I shouldn't see this too black and white. There are probably people who do what they like, but maybe never thought about the fact that something else might fit them even better. Also, It's not that easy; When you are quite young you already have to choose which direction you want to go, regarding work. When people ask what you want to do later, they usually target one specific profession, while your interests may change over the years. In my opinion, we should abandon that idea of one profession in the future and focus more on what is now our interest in it. By always thinking about this and becoming aware of what you want, it is almost impossible to end up in a job that takes the energy out of you, which otherwise could have ended up in a burn-out.

Change

So it's almost so far, I'm leaving tonight with the car towards London. Just over six hours in the car I have to get on campus. I have been living for months now and I notice to myself that I have mixed feelings about all of this. There was no doubt that this is the study I should be doing, which really suits me, but still it seems a bit unreal. All my life I leave behind to enter a new adventure. Some say; ' O one and a half years, that's not so much ' and others ask if I don't miss my family, friends and my friend. I did not even think about it before. I was very sober. It finds its way all over again and otherwise but not, that is not even a disaster. During my coaching lectures, it has once been discussed that people can be difficult to change in their lives. This seems to be due to the potential danger of change. This will allow you to stay on the spot where you are now and continue to do what you always do, than to look for other (or perhaps better) things that you might be involved in. When you start something new there is a chance that you will fail, which is also something that would rather be out of the way. During my graduation study, in a project for early school-leaving young people, it was noticed that many young people did not dare to open their mouths because they feared that they would say something wrong or stupid. I still remember that the coach told the group that sometimes you have to make mistakes to get on. If you never try to make mistakes, you will never get to what you really want to do.  If you want to make a change in your habits, this can cost a lot of effort. How can this be? It has been proven that we are more than eighty percent of what we do unconsciously. So you don't necessarily make conscious choices in what you want. Most of the thoughts we have had yesterday are exactly what we have today. These habits have an essential function by saving us a lot of energy. It takes energy to make decisions and by using decisions that have been made every day to move forward, the energy left over can be used in a more useful way. Many people experience resistance as they want to change something in their (daily) lives. This can be perceived as unpleasant, giving you a chance to stop performing your new actions and fall back into your old habits. So what do you really need to make a successful change and maintain it? I do not want to say that it is difficult for everyone and in every situation to try something new. In my opinion, it depends on several factors whether you will be successful in this. To what extent are you motivated to pursue what you are doing? Do you have enough knowledge and able to perform the ' task '? Are there any resources around that can support you in the transition? When we change we are vulnerable because we are stepping out of our comfort zone. Many people want to change but want to avoid this insurmountable vulnerability. This will cause you to struggle with yourself, to sabotage yourself and to remain in the place you have always been. It is often said that there is a Struggle (struggle) seems to be necessary to create something beautiful. An example of this is the pain a woman has in giving birth to a child. After she has endured the almost excruciating pain, she gets here so much in return. Or a butterfly that needs to do some trouble to break out of his doll. However, you may feel that you should go through some sort of struggle, but in reality this is not necessary at all. Why wouldn't you be able to do what you really want? Why don't you just go for it and make sure it works.  In my opinion, many people are held in their place by perfectionism; The feeling that you should have something completely thought out or arranged. This will allow you to see the task as a huge mountain so that you do not make any steps at all. I think it is better to continue to make small (or big) steps, rather than making every step perfect. Because if We look at it honestly; When is something well perfect enough to run out of it? Yet this is not so black and white as it can sometimes be quite effective to pursue perfection. However, you should not forget that perfection is even more subjective, that this is different for everyone. If you are motivated in the top and want to get everything out of yourself, perfection can be a yardstick, in which you have to be aware of what effect this has on your progression. If I look at myself, I can mention some examples. For example, starting this website; I had little experience in shaping a website and I had never written a blog before. Some people say that I'm too young to start this way and that I need to know how to time my actions. In other words: Haven't you started too early, don't you need to develop it first? By simply starting with this, I have made myself aware that the very first thing that I am writing may not be of world level, but that I will grow up here during the process. When I look back at my first blogs I already see an unprecedented progress, which I could never have achieved if I could only start with it in a year. I wonder if you have not done something because you thought it might not succeed. What if you had done it and you were successful? I am not asking for a feeling of guilt, but they do not say for nothing: You better regret the things you did than what you did not do.

Doing Nothing

What do I want to convey on others? What are I really doing myself in my life? These are questions that I have just asked myself and from that I would like to talk about doing nothing. This may seem to be a very empty and boring subject in the first instance, but I think that here is certainly more about it and to note than that you would initially think. Just over a week back, I had my last day at the cleaning work I did for a number of weeks. I realised that I now had an awful lot of time to do everything I would like to do before I leave for London. Blog writing, completing my online course, making a start on your own podcast and doing a lot with friends and family. This may seem like the blog I've written on temptations, but I want to shine another light on the gene that you do when you're not doing what you actually really would like to do. Instead of actively working on what you want or possibly actively solve a problem, rather have to undergo a passive activity or passively deal with your problems. What I've noticed to myself this past week is that I can quickly opt for the passive, as this seems to be the easiest and most satisfying choice in the moment. Watching a movie or getting out of a ' difficult ' conversation is very pleasant at the moment, but it can cause less well-being in the long term because it is not actively working on solving the problem. I found out that it was difficult for me personally to see the dividing line, or to feel it, between having a rest moment or passively dealing with certain things. I have become more and more aware of this because I have been paying attention to this in the last six months. At the moment the activity I do gives energy, I know that I have a real recharge or resting moment. When I feel that the energy has been sucked out of my body, I know that I might actually have been able to do something else to keep my energy on the arrow. This sounds pretty simple, but I think many people here totally do not dwell and that they are being lived through the day and the others around them. How about this for you? To what extent are you aware of where you do and do not get energy from? At this time there is always and everywhere information to find about anything and everything. Our phones never stand still.
