My theory in life? Create your own happiness. It doesn´t grow on trees, you can´t buy it. So, don´t look for happiness, but instead, create it. And have fun while doing so. :)

There are so many things in life to be happy and grateful for. Think about everything you have in your life, think about everything you have experienced, think about everyone who has crossed your life, think about all the people who love you.

And to be honest, that is just the tip of an iceberg. There are plenty of things to be grateful for. I find that many people can´t seem to see and appreciate the smallest and the most precious things the life sends our way. But instead, the desire to own more and have everything is bigger than feeling the power of small things around us. So today (and every day), I am happy to remind people the little details in their lives they can´t see. Just to remind them the little, silly and beautiful things in life.

Take a deep breath. Slow down for a while. Look around you. Look at the trees moving in the wind. Look at the beautiful and bright sky. Listen to the birds singing and kids laughing. Listen to yourself. Pause in a moment and take it all in. Inhale all the good, exhale everything that´s unwated. Get rid of everything that is not needed to create more spaces for all the lovely things in life. Feel the love around you, feel the peace within you. Inhale, exhale. Let your mind wonder, let your heart be wild. Open your eyes and see the beauty around you.

Because as someone full of wisdom said ´There is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way.´

– Buddha

May this guide you in creating you own kind of happiness.

And remember. If you can´t see the sun but shadows and clouds instead, be patient. The storm will end and the Sun will rise again. And if it keeps raining, create your own kind of Sun. Create your own kind of Sun in your mind, in your body, on your plate or in your cup! Shine within and make yourself some sunny-looking smoothie. It´s kind of the same thing, isn´t it? :)

 

Sunny Orange Drink
(serves one; or two if you are generous)

3 beautiful and juicy oranges (from the fridge if you fancy your smoothie to be nice and refreshing)
1 large carrot
big chunk of ginger, maybe as big as your thumb (I always use plenty as I love the heat)
big chunk of fresh turmeric root (or substitute with about 1 tsp of ground turmeric)
juice of 1/2 lemon
fancy extras like protein-packed seeds or nut butters (chia seeds-ro esthethic reasons choose the white kind, hemp seeds, soaked sunflower or sesame seeds, soaked and blanched almonds..just keep it within the white color ;)

Peel your oranges and cut them into chunks.
Clean your carrot (I never peel it as I get mine organic in a vegetable box:), and grate it so your blender doesn´t have to work hard.

Peel your ginger and turmeric (if not organic) and cut it into chunks.

Put everything into your blender. Blend, blend, blend. Taste, add more ginger or turmeric if you fancy. Blend again. Add in your seeds for super powers if you feel like it and blend again until completely smooth. If the consistency is quite thick, dilute it with some water.

Serve in a big jar(s) and enjoy with grattitude because you have the ability to create your own kind of Sun and serve it in a glass.

And now, sip, sip, sip on it slowly and chew. Even if there is nothing to chew on, chew. You need to let you body know there is some food coming to your belly so your digestion can start working properly. :)

Enjoy, be healthy, be happy.

Aka je jedna z mojich zivotnych teorii? Vytvorte si svoje vlastne stastie. Stastie sa neda kupit, nerastie na stromoch, nemozte si honikde nazbierat. Takze to stastie ani nehladajte, ale namiesto hladanie si ho jednoducho vytvorte. A nezabudne sa pri tom zabavat. :)

V zivote je naozaj neskutocne vela veci, za ktore by sme mali byt vdacni a stastni. Len sa zamyslite nad vsetkym tym, co v zivote mate; zamyslite sa nad tzm, kolko uzasnych ludi vam v zivite skryzilo cesty; zamyslite sa nad tym, co vsetko ste v zivote zazili; zamyslite sa nad tym, kolko mate okolo seba ludi, ktori vas zboznuju a miluju.

A pravdupovediac, je to len zlomok toho, ya co vsetko by sme mali byt vdacni a len zlomok toho, co nas robi tak stastnymi bytostami. Alebo co by nas stastnymi bytostami malo robit. Vidim to kazdy den. Ludia, ktori zabudaju na tie najmilsie a najmensie detaily zivota, ktore nam zivot s radostou hadze pod nohy. :) Casto si vsimame len tie najvacsie udalosti, casto sme pohlteni len tymi velkymi a fenomenalnymi vecami. Ale je cas spomalit. A tak vam trosku pomozem byt stastnejsimi, pokojnejsimi. Mozno vam ukazat tie krasne malickosti zivota, ktore nie casto vidime.
Zhlboka sa nadychnite. Spomalte. Nachvilku spomalte. Poobzerajte sa navokol seba. Pozrite sa na stromy, ktore sa kolisu v jemnom vanku. Pozrite sa na tu krasnu a jasnu oblohu. Zapocuvajte sa do spev vtakov. Zapocuvajte sa do detskeho smiechu. Zapocujte sa do samych seba. Nachvilku spomalte a nasajte do seba vsetko to krasne. Nadychnite sa a prijmite do seba vsetko to nadherne. Vydychnite vsetko, co nepotrebujete. Zbavte sa vsetkeho co nepotrebujete aby ste vytvorili na vsetky tie nadherne veci v zivote. Citte okolo seba tu lasku, najdite v sebe pokoj. Nadychnite sa a s pokojom vydychnite. Nechajte vasu mysel volne behat a vase srdce byt sialene a plne zivota. Otvorte oci a vsimnite si vsetko to krasne.

Tak ako raz jeden mudry clovek povedal ´Neexistuje cesta k stastiu. Stastie je ta cesta.´

-Buddha

Tak isto aj vy, vytvorte si vlastne stastie.

A pamatajte, ze ak nedokazete vidiet slnko, budte trpezlivi. Tie mraky a oblaky raz urcite zmiznu a slnko sa znova objavi na oblohe. A to v celej svojej krase. A ak by si to nahodou nechcelo rozmysliet, vytvorte si vase vlastne slnko. V mysli, v srdci, na tanieri alebo v pohari. Spravte si slnecny smoothie plny krasnej farby, pozitivnej energie a zdravia.

 
Slnečný pomarančový drink
(porcia pre jedneho alebo ak je jeden mily a chce sa podelit, je to porcia pre dvoch)

3 krasne a stavnate pomarance (ak si prajete mat smoothie naozaj osviezujuci, pouzite pomarance z chladnicky)
1 velka mrkva
poriadny kus zazvoru, mozno taky velky ako vas cely palec)
pekny kus cerstveho korena kurkumy(turmeriku)
stava z 1/2 citrona
a vsetky čačky-mačky, ktore vam nutricne vylepsia vas smoothie (biele chia alebo konopne semiacka. namocene slnecnicove alebo sezamove semiacka, orieskove masla, namocene a olupane mandle.. prakticky hocico co vam chuti a je bielej farby;)

Osupte si vase pomarance a nakrajajte ich na kusy.
Ocistite si vasu mrkvu (ak treba, aj ju osupte; ja dostavam organicku mrkvu od mojho zeleninara v donaske ovocia a zeleniny, takze ich nikdy nesupem, no poriadne vzdy vydrhnem). Mrkvu si nastruhajte na struhadle aby mal vas mixer menej roboty a ak nie je vykonny, aby sa vam neprehrial motor.

Osupte vas zazvor a koren kurkumy (ak nepouzivate bio) a nakrajajte na kusy.

Vsetko napchajte do vasho mixera alebo di misky a pomocou rucneho mixera alebo poriadneho kuchynskeho mixera to uz len vsetko vyblendujte a vymixujte. Mixujte, mixujte, mixujte dokym nie je smoothie jemne.

Smoothie ochutnajte. Ak sa citite na extra stiplavost a jemnu, osviezujucu palivost po zazvore, pridajte ho viacej. Tak isto aj s kurkumou. Pomixujte, ochutnajte.

Teraz pridajte vase extra semiacka na ziskanie zazracnych schopnosti a vymixujte. Ak sa vam bude zdat smoothie husty, pridajte trosku vody.

Podavajte vo velkom pohari (poharoch) a vychutnajte si smoothie s vdakou, pretoze mate moznost si vycarovat slnko vo vasej kuchyni. Ta farba je uplne uzasna, co poviete? :)

Nezabudnite, ze smoothies by ste mali pit naozaj pomaly, aby vase cele traviace ustrojenstvo nedostalo sok. Nevylejte si smoothie do brucha co najrychlejsie viete, ale namiesto toho ho pekne zujte, zujte a pomaly pochlipkavajte. Tak bude vase travenie pracovat paradne a efektivne :)

Budte stastni, budte zdravi. Nazdravie!
