1. Warum bloggest du?
Das ist alles ein soziales Experiment und Teil einer Studie, die ich für meine Abschlussarbeit erstelle.
I was never to type of person who sets new years resolutions. I want more short-term goals. Therefore, I will continue with my monthly recaps!
Now that Christmas is over, my conclusion is that I like the advent season more than Christmas itself. I could lie and tell you how relaxing and unwinding Christmas was but that is not the truth.
I hope you all have a wonderful christmas with your loved ones!
P.S.: The heart looks like a butt…
How was my November? Find out for yourself!
In today’s Tuesday-Truesure I want to thank everybody for their birthday wishes and kind words on my Geburtstagsblues blog post! You really made my day!
“And if I asked you to name all the things that you love, how long would it take for you to name yourself?”
It would take me awhile because impulsively a lot of other people and things would come to my mind. I oftentimes forget to love myself and I am rather my worst critic!
That’s why for this week’s Tuesday-Treasure I want to remind myself and you guys to love yourself! Don’t always put other people first! You are worth of being the No.1!
This week a family member passed away. I haven’t spoken with this person in over 15 years. It wasn’t a person you want to surround yourself with. I don’t want to go too much in detail because I think you shouldn’t speak negatively about a person who can’t defend himself anymore.
When I heard of the news, I had to cry.
I wasn’t sad about this person’s death, I was sad about how he wasted his life.
Recently, I was watching a documentary about Confucianism. I always heard that if you want to understand China, you have to understand Confucius. It is basically the moral, ethics and behavioral code of Chinese people since thousands of years. So I started reading more about it. The bottom line of Confucianism is the community. In western societies individualism is the quintessence. Who am I? What do I want to do? But in Chinese society it is important to blend in, to be a part of a functioning nation or group of people. Living well with other people, respecting your parents and ancestors and therefore becoming a good person, are the most important aspects about Confucianism.
Did you ever wonder why Chinese people usually travel in huge groups and everywhere you go, you never see one Chinese person but a group? Confucianism is the answer. They enjoy being in a group. They don’t mind being with a lot of people were we rather travel individually with maximum our family or couple of friends as companions.
I don’t want to go too much in detail about Confucianism at this point. I still have to learn more about it and want to write a separate article about it.
There is something I haven’t shared with you in my Reality of an International / Binational Relationship article.
