Let’s start the race!

xb2020x2
I live in a country where
we are still defined by our race.
Some say,
it’s to preserve our own culture and heritage.
But I beg to differ as
over the years had caused much
discrimination and discord.
And those in authority are
killing our spirits
with their on-going rhetoric
for popularity and votes.
We need to see ourselves as 
one nation, one human race.
Let us join our hearts together
to push for change 
no matter how difficult
or long it may take
for the sake of our children
and future generations.
The time is now, my friends.
Let’s start the race today!

Lagom – the Swedish way

sweden-flag-animation
Pronounced ‘lah gom’ – this Swedish way of life is about things being ‘just enough’ or ‘just right’ – something that’s neither too much of one thing , nor too much of the other but somewhere in between.   
Finding balance is the key  to this concept which is rooted deep in the Swedish psyche. It permeates all aspects of life. Along with the idea of balance in all things, there is also a conscious unselfishness about lagom.
If you feel like there’s just too much to do or modern life is too busy and goal-focused, you may want to adopt this attractive mindset and strive to be simply good enough or just enough.

“It is not our differences that divide us.

It is our inability to recognize, accept,

and celebrate those differences.”
