The reasons for opening your private space for the observation of the others can be different. Some of us want to receive appraise of the fullness of our life and of our personal success, the others use the method of a-photo-a-day shooting to view his or her priorities and interests in life. Besides, it allows walking in some other’s shoes through the prism of his or her photos and noticing something joyful and wonderful in ordinary life.

Most of us can write only some brief note like “I’ll be late” or a to-do list for tomorrow. We are the typing generation. However, writing presents not only the delivery of information but the way of self-expression and self-control as well.

Ancient Chinese and Japanese art of calligraphy was always aimed at the improvement of a person’s body and mind.
Multiple repetition of canonical actions leads to the realization of the harmony of the world. The philosophical sense of this occupation will be exposed to you later, when you will be busy with performing your house work.
Everyone enjoys presents but the people give and receive them in various manners. The aim of each present is to bring joy to both the one who gives a present and the one ho receives it. It is important to do your best to avoid disappointment if you give a present.
If a person has the strong conviction that he is the best present himself that is a vivid example of the fact that even good may be excessive. The parents of such person probably used to suppose that their children is the center of the universe. That’s why as soon as such person goes through the door of the house he gets sure that his popping up is the present for all the guests. Generally the presents of such person may be rather valuable and expensive but only in the case he searches for attention of the one who receives them.
The ones who are not commonly pleased with what the other people give them may express their dissatisfaction either openly or implicitly. Such ones may tell a joke that would reveal their real attitude to the present received or make careless face. To reduce the risk of such situation it’ better to ask what that person would like to have. There is nothing wrong with it. Moreover the people who are rarely satisfied with the presents they get are aware of their feature and often make a list of wishes.

It’s a pity but world is imperfect. Maybe if everything had gone smoother the world would be a dull place to live in. But still some minor events make us upset. We may either insult the other people or get insulted ourselves. Insult is an unpleasant thing by all means but for fragile and sensitive personalities that may be a cause of depression. So how to answer the abuser if he insults you? There are various strategies to act in such situation but I prefer not to answer. First or all impudence and rudeness makes me feel uneasy. Of course later I find a pile or possible sharp and witty answers but it’s already late. Moreover I suppose that there is no point to waste every second of your precious time for arguing with the one who allows himself to insult the others. I won’t make him better anyway if I start arguments. The last reason for my passive attitude is weak vocal cords. Every tension causes pain and discomfort. And the one with quiet and soft voice won’t take over noisy ill-mannered nuisance. The cycle “insult-answer insult” may be never ending. It is more likely the I would finally give in and allow the abuser to celebrate his victory. I prefer to cut off the mutual insulting by ignoring it from the very beginning. That doesn’t mean I always act right, in addition I don’t always ignore insults. I developed some tips for myself that help me when I face boorishness. Probably you would find some of them helpful.
