Don't Just Follow Your Passion: A Talk for Generation Y: Eunice Hii at TEDxTerryTalks 2012

‘Being Authentic’ is More Than Just Being Honest Of all the things the millennial generation wants out of church, authenticity may be the most important. As a twentysomething pastor who lives in Silver Lake—a very creative, diverse, and subversive neighborhood in LA—I see the need for authenticity in the hearts of my neighbors, as well as in my own heart. It's the battle cry of our generation, often expressed publicly with ironic clothing and accessories, or more privately with heart-to-heart conversations over coffee and other things we love. I think the cry for authenticity stems out of the reality that we're a generation let down by previous ones. Past ideals don't work for us. We're fed up with wearing masks and hiding the truth about ourselves in an effort to blend in because it starves our hearts and leaves us empty. However, the quest for meaning isn't without its challenges. What is Authenticity? Authenticity in the Church is the quality of our exposure of brokenness and adornment in God's grace. 1. “Deny yourself daily.” 2. 3.

Be Beautiful Manchester Based British Beauty Blog, Lifestyle Blog, Jewellery Blog, DIY Beauty Blog: DIY: Eye Make Up Remover - the best trick I've discovered! So a looong time ago I did a post about taking your eye make up off with olive oil. I've been doing this for about 6 months now and have noticed the skin around my eyes seems a lot more moisturised and supple. Recently however, I've added another natural ingredient to my olive oil and it seems to be working ever better. So I'd done some research on what to add to olive oil so that its still as effective at removing tough, stubborn make up but with less drag and came across witch hazel. A few people will be worrying about placing an astringent like witch hazel around the eye area but I've checked with my optometrist who assured me that it would be fine but to take care with it as I would any other product that I applied to the eye area. So to make your eye make up remover you'll need: Extra Virgin Olive Oil Witch Hazel (Boots sell it near the pharmacy bit) A pump dispenser (I'm using an old Molton Brown Hand Cream Bottle) Not only is this 100% natural but it's so cost-effective.

Cyber Italian - Activity: Read and Listen - Bring the Sound in the Mask Parlare la lingua italiana richiede naturalmente di portare i suoni in maschera perché la voce si proietta idealmente nella parte frontale del viso (in particolare: bocca, naso, seni paranasali, zigomi). In tal modo la maschera diventa il punto di risonanza e cassa armonica della nostra voce. Osserva la tua pronuncia e i suoni che emetti. Puoi portare il suono in maschera? Puoi percepire la tua voce che risuona nella maschera? Dove risuona la tua voce principalmente? Speaking the Italian language naturally requires to bring the sounds in the mask because the voice is ideally projected in the front part of the face (in particular: mouth, nose, sinuses, cheekbones). Observe your pronunciation and the sounds you emit. Can you bring the sound in the mask? Can you feel your voice resonate in the mask? Where does your voice resonate mostly?

The Minimalist's Guide to Career Happiness Think about the worst job you’ve ever had. I’m talking about brain dead, boring, tedious, work. You’ve had at least one of those, yes? Sometimes we accept a job like that, knowing that it doesn’t suit us perfectly. But other times, the job looked great on the surface. Why is that? The Complications of Choosing a Career Maybe your well-intending parents pushed you to become a lawyer because they wanted a secure, profitable career for you. Perhaps your siblings went into medicine, and your competitive nature led you there, too. Or maybe a high tech environment was considered the cool, hip place to be, so you studied software development. In each of these cases, the careers were selected for external reasons. Sure, a nice salary is great. No, your past choices weren’t terrible. So now you’re ready to consider a different approach. What Do You Need? There are things you need to be happy in your career. Did you think to factor those in when you selected your current job? Discovering Yourself

An Essay by Einstein -- The World As I See It "How strange is the lot of us mortals! Each of us is here for a brief sojourn; for what purpose he knows not, though he sometimes thinks he senses it. But without deeper reflection one knows from daily life that one exists for other people -- first of all for those upon whose smiles and well-being our own happiness is wholly dependent, and then for the many, unknown to us, to whose destinies we are bound by the ties of sympathy. A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life are based on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving... "I have never looked upon ease and happiness as ends in themselves -- this critical basis I call the ideal of a pigsty. The ideals that have lighted my way, and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Kindness, Beauty, and Truth. "My political ideal is democracy.

What Can You Do with a Music Degree? What Can You Do with a Music Degree? There are far more options for what you can do with a music degree than you probably realize. Performing and teaching are the two most common careers in music, but those don’t begin to cover what music majors can pursue once they graduate. Here’s a list of some of the careers for those with a music degree. We’ve linked several to articles on, to give you a better sense of what people are really up to in these fields. Note that some of these careers require graduate education (eg., teaching on the college level) or additional training beyond what you’ll find in an undergraduate program. • Accompanist (public and private schools, music schools and performing arts camps; religious centers and schools; dance rehearsals and performances; other venues) • Acoustics • Adjudicator • Arranger • Artist management • Arts administrator/arts management (includes box office, concert series, programming house manager) • Audio production, editing

Why Meditation and Yoga Can't Save Introverts. Meditation and yoga are spiritual disciplines. Beautiful ones at that. But when we introverts are in a state of crisis—I mean the exact moment that we need to call upon elevating power—they may not serve us as efficiently as we might like. Ideally, the concept is that meditation and other spiritual practices will allow us to radiate their centering benefits regardless of the situation that we are in. However, this is not always the case. Particularly for introverts. The way the mind works—and if you’ve ever experienced hypnotherapy, you already know this—is that when we go into a quiet space, a contemplative space, as we do during meditation or yoga, it very often mirrors a state of introversion. This is not necessarily going to help you in the outside world dealing with the daily stresses that you encounter. The best option that we have to call upon in that flash of an instant when we need it, is grounding. Let’s find your grounding symbol right now. Now watch those words fade away.

Bad career advice: Do what you love One of the worst pieces of career advice that I bet each of you has not only gotten but given is to “do what you love.” Forget that. It’s absurd. I have been writing since before I even knew how to write – when I was a preschooler I dictated my writing to my dad. And you might not be in preschool, but if you are in touch with who you are, you are doing what you love, no matter what, because you love it. So it’s preposterous that we need to get paid to do what we love because we do that stuff anyway. I am a writer, but I love sex more than I love writing. So how could you possibly pick one thing you love to do? The world reveals to you all that you love by what you spend time on. Often, the thing we should do for our career is something we would only do if we were getting a reward. The pressure we feel to find a perfect career is insane. Here’s some practical advice: Do not what you love; do what you are. Relationships make your life great, not jobs. A job can save your life, though.

12 Little Known Laws of Karma (That Will Change Your Life) What is Karma? Karma is the Sanskrit word for action. It is equivalent to Newton’s law of ‘every action must have a reaction’. To stop being afraid and to start being empowered in the worlds of karma and reincarnation, here is what you need to know about karmic laws. - “As you sow, so shall you reap”. - Whatever we put out in the Universe is what comes back to us. - If what we want is Happiness, Peace, Love, Friendship… Then we should BE Happy, Peaceful, Loving and a True Friend. - Life doesn’t just HAPPEN, it requires our participation. - We are one with the Universe, both inside and out. – Whatever surrounds us gives us clues to our inner state. - BE yourself, and surround yourself with what you want to have present in your Life. - What you refuse to accept, will continue for you. - If what we see is an enemy, or someone with a character trait that we find to be negative, then we ourselves are not focused on a higher level of existence. - “Wherever you go, there you are”.
