What Is Creativity?

When we speak about creativity, most people think mainly of fine arts, and artistic creations, whose role is mainly aesthetic. But creativity is not only that. So, what is creativity? Creativity is defined as the ability to make or otherwise bring into existence something new, whether a new solution to a problem, a new method or device, or a new artistic object or form. If … Continue reading What Is Creativity?

A Radical Idea. (I’m Going To Write a Book.)

Just imagine, you’re sat fat, dumb and happy when BAM! Your engine shits itself. (And so do you.) Suddenly you’re forced to divert. You need to get on the ground pronto! Before you know it, there you are. Grounded with a bum engine – a million miles from the original destination you had in mind.  So, you find yourself sat around in your underpants on … Continue reading A Radical Idea.

SnapDragon Speaks: On Herself.

-Previously posted on Snippets of SnapDragon– So I sat down with amateur blogger SnapDragon X., to ask her a thing or two about life. She wore an over-sized teal dress/shirt thing, which she said seems to have become her unofficial uniform as of late. Her polka-dotted leggings undoubtedly completed the Practical-Mom outfit. Plus, there may or may not have been a smear of child-snot on … Continue reading SnapDragon Speaks: On Herself.

How open are you to new ideas?

Changes are hard, especially the drastic ones. For example, if you’re used with a certain lifestyle, it will be very hard for you to change it. You’ll feel some holdback from your body simply because it gets you out of your comfort zone. This doesn’t mean that you’ll reject all new ideas, but I bet your mind will start to see the negative parts first, … Continue reading How open are you to new ideas?

The Most Important Thing(s) To Understand About Your Relationship

One of my most interested fields in psychology is that of dating and understanding how to find and interact with our romantic partner. There is no doubt that if you are in a relationship or married, that you haven’t been through some sort of emotional or mental rollercoaster with your partner. That’s just part of the process, and more often than not, we resolve whatever … Continue reading The Most Important Thing(s) To Understand About Your Relationship

The Regret of doing things vs The Regret of not doing things

   Today I came across an idea that had a big impact on me. There has been a study made by two U.S. universities on 370 people about the regret of doing things versus the regret of not doing things. The conclusion is that when we do things and regret it, the experience is more painful, but it doesn’t last that long (most of the … Continue reading The Regret of doing things vs The Regret of not doing things

Movie Thoughts – The Greatest Showman (2017)

   This movie is about a man who made his dream come true by not giving up (you can read more about it here). It’s interesting to see how many things we can ignore if we are pursuing the things we want. The problem is that not all the things we’re ignoring should be ignored. Also, there are things we should ignore, but we aren’t. … Continue reading Movie Thoughts – The Greatest Showman (2017)

The Self-fulfilling Prophecy

   This is a term used in psychology for events happening because we’re expecting them. “A self-fulfilling prophecy is a prediction that directly or indirectly causes itself to become true, by the very terms of the prophecy itself, due to positive feedback between belief and behavior.” – Wikipedia    In simpler words: your predictions will come true because unconsciously you’ll behave in such a way to … Continue reading The Self-fulfilling Prophecy

The Art of Observing the Others

   If we need to be satisfied in our interactions with other people, we need to observe. From my perspective, this includes listening to whatever they have to say and also paying attention to their body language, including the tone of their voice. Words never express the whole of what they have to say, simply because they can’t (you can read here my post about … Continue reading The Art of Observing the Others

Fear – our biggest obstacle?

   Does it happen to you that whenever you have a great idea about something, immediately your mind is filled with automatic negative thoughts about why it can’t get real? And if this happens, do you find solutions to counter the negative thoughts or you just drop the idea? If you drop the idea, I think that it’s because of the fear… fear of losing … Continue reading Fear – our biggest obstacle?

Are we living in the future?

   I’m not going to try to answer this question from a technological point of view, but rather from a psychological one. How often are we saying to ourselves that when we’ll get something we’ll be happier? How many times we’re letting the tomorrow interfere with the today? How many opportunities to be happy we’re missing just because we’re thinking about something in the future … Continue reading Are we living in the future?


   All of us have addictions, but do we realize it? When I say addictions, I’m not talking only about substances (like drugs, nicotine or alcohol), I’m also talking about addictions to actions (like playing video games, watching movies or reading books) and addictions to certain people.    I think that, in essence, addictions are ways to briefly escape the cruel reality. All of us … Continue reading Addictions
