Positive Psychology: Have a go at your happiness!

Christina/ March 22, 2019/ Ideas of philosophy

Just before Christmas, the stock-exchange gurus let all confidence die: “Almost everybody has given up hope for an end-of-year-rally still to come”, experts claim. You may wonder why this fact is still no reason to agonize. The answer is quite easy: In the international boardrooms they will again acclaim themselves with

Roses of Sarajevo

Christina/ June 25, 2018/ Ideas of philosophy

At first it is just a red spot on the ground. We are standing in front of the former house of the Kolar family in the Butmir district. Now it is the museum “Tunnel of Hope”.

True magic

Christina/ May 21, 2018/ Categories, Ideas of philosophy

Is there something like true love? And how is the difference between true and untrue love defined? Or is it just wishful thinking that a true love defies any inconvenience, any odds, any boredom or routine and all the temptations in the world?

Last saturday

Christina/ November 17, 2015/ Ideas of philosophy

Last saturday was different from all the saturdays before. Although it started like always. I went swimming, I went shopping and was enjoying a cup of coffee in front of my computer when I heard the news.
